  1. Projects Small ripper with sacrificial hook and hold downs.

    My small strip ripper finally bit the dust, after one too many passes. It has no hook left, and the underside has seen far better days, indeed. I kept the fence rider as it is still in peak shape, the hickory floor strip. With two T nuts and 5/16 thumb screws, it connects to the control block...

  3. Thin Strip Ripping Jig

    I have a project that calls for making 3/4" x 3/4" edging and I've been wanting to make one of these jigs for the longest time so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to finally make it. I actually bought the bearing about six months ago on eBay for something like $4 from China...
  4. Failed Cutting Board a.k.a. Lemonade from Lemons

    Trying my first ever "basket weave" cutting board. What do you do when the cutting board glue up is a total disaster? Lemonade from lemons!! Cut the only good parts into "coasters" , sand and finish them with mineral oil!!! Who knew? Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat!
  5. Vase Pyrograpy

    It started out as a fallen gum tree branch and then for a long time was a rather plain little vase. After a couple of years and a few small cracks appearing on the rim I was overcome with an urge to decorate and inspired by the henna hand and foot dye patterns that Indian and other ethnic...
  6. Coffee Table - my first

    This is my first time building a coffee table. It is made of Walnut, Mahogany, and Purple Heart. I made a one off jig to create the taper legs. That was an adventure. They are tapered to two sides. Finished it off with danish oil and will apply a thin coat of wipe on poly once that cures...

    Hi, I'm new here and relatively new to woodworking so I'm sorry in advance if I use the incorrect terminology. I recently decided I wanted to make a shuffleboard table and have it mostly completed except for the playing surface which is where I've encountered a problem. The playing surface is...
  9. Wood & Lumber
    Hey lumberjocks! I'm trying to cut wood strips about 1.75" x 0.4" x 48" long and wondering what method would be better. Mainly I'm unsure about how much sanding (?) is required off the bandsaw, and how much warp would typically be caused by both methods. Method 1: buy 8/4 or 10/4 lumber (if...

    Design ideas, need some feedback OK, so yeah - another blog about a router table, but since I'm going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I've had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2...

The SketchUp model is available on the 3D Warehouse. When I started thinking about this project, all I knew was that I...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm trying to build a table top out of some thin old red pine wood strips i salvaged, and have been racking my brain for ways to make it work. The strips, once planed, jointed and ripped are only 1/4" thick and 1-1/4" wide; too thin to T&G. I need the table top to be at least 1/2" thick, so i...
