  1. First Try with Dremel Router

    Here is my first try at router woodworking. Used an old Dremel 400 XPR that I have used around the garage for grinding, cutting, and polishing. Thought I would give routering a try. The old raised grain weathered wood was quite the challenge for the 1/8" router bit. But, I think the jagged...
  2. Roorkhee Chair

    I finally finished my Roorkhee Chair. The chair frame is African mahogany and the seat, back, and arms are leather. The leather is joined together with brass rivets. The conical mortise and tenons were difficult to get precise, but the chair is fairly forgiving. This project required so many...
  3. Wine Holders just keep appearing in the shop...

    I had some folks tell me they loved my holders but just didn't have the counter space for one. So, I came up with a hanging design. I flattened one side and installed keyhole hangers. I had to build a "little wall" to display it on so folks could get the idea. Just how many projects can a guy...
  4. Bee Vacuum

    Going to get my first hive of wild bees out of a tree trunk this week. Needed something to help get them out. Copied plans from the internet with a few little modifications.
  5. Simple Combo Router Jig

    Here is my take on a combo Router Jig. I like to call it my Router Buddy. I can attach a miter slide on the bottom as you can see in the pics which allows me to cut both a straight line dado or mitered for those unusual occasions. Also works great as a circle cutting jig with a dowel insert. I...

    I screwed a scrap piece of wood onto some rough Magnolia last night to rip a clean edge on it. It worked as expected, though the screw holes left by the jig are annoying. Is there some fancy clamping technique I'm missing that could give me the same results without screw holes?
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm new to routing. Currently, my intended uses are: - cutting 1/8" or 1/4" wide channels - cutting mortises and dados - cutting recesses for hardware (example, installing a vice) - flush trimming - chamfering So, the bits I'm planning on purchasing are: - flush trim or pattern bit - chamfer...

    I am interested in a precision straight edge for machine setups and reference. I can't justify the expense of a Starrett brand. Fwiw, I have a Johnson 48" long alum ruler that is so straight I can't imagine much difference. The problem is it doesn't stand on edge very well. I happened to...

    I am new to this forum and did some research here before I asked this to be sure that I was not repeating something already done, and to the best of my knowledge I don't think this has been brought up. I make and sell some furniture for some extra money and lately I have been having to rent a...

    I just started my woodworking journey. I apologize that I am a complete beginner and for asking dumb questions. However, I am stuck on my first project and I need help. I am simply trying to build a box with mitered corners. When I first went to rip my board to the proper width, I noticed that...

    Looking for a new 10" Slider Miter saw, replacing a Makita LS1013 i've had for maybe 12-15 years, sold it to a buddy. As i'm reading reviews for all the new sliding dual bevel compound miter saws, I get the impression that NONE of them can cut straight, they have slop, cant be made square, have...

    Is it worth the extra $ to get a spiral cutter head on a jointer? I am looking at the Grizzly 0656 ($1095) and the 0656X ($1710). Is it really a pain in the rear to set straight knives even on a quality machine? Is the difference in the finish significant?

    Hey guys, I'm offering for sale probably one of the finest saws in my collection. It's in absolutely excellent condition and a very rare find. W&M made saws between 1857 and 1893 at which time they were absorbed along with several other saw manufacturers into the National Saw Company. They...
  16. Finishing
    I recently purchased four 12 foot length by 12 inch wide redwood lumber. I am creating a table top with the planks and I wanted to get some opinions about the best way to make a straight edge to join them together. I own a small table saw and electric hand planer, but I dont have a planer...

I recently started work in a small production mill work shop (2 man operation), have been in carpentry for almost 20 years, doing custom work out of my own home shop for my customers for the past 5. So my question is if making lets say a siding or flooring...

    Spline Cutting Jig I have seen a few spline cutting jigs here on LumberJocks. I was trying to think how I would use such a jig. I ran across some Freud blades for a skill type saw that are 7 1/4 wide and 1/16" thick. They were made for the battery skill saws where you don't have a lot of...

    Shop Made Square I've had a hard time drawing lines across some 2×10's recently. I made my own square out of wood. I don't know if it will stay true, so this is a test. Please comment if you've made an all wooden square and let me know your outcomes. Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

    Hand Tool Shootout | Preparing Rough Sawn Lumber by Hand vs. the Machines My usual routine is somewhat hybrid, I typically do the bulk of the removal of material with the jointer and planer, then square it up at my cross cut sled, and finally remove the scallops from the planer with a smoothing...
