  1. foam cutter

    I made this foam cutter for work (got paid to woodwork in my garage for a day :). I build weather balloon instruments that require lots of foam insulation to keep things warm at 30 km (100k feet) altitudes. We used to hack out foam parts by hand with a knife, and also had a kludged-together...
  2. Workbench - Gym floor top

    I had a workbench, but it functioned pretty much as an assembly table only, no clamping options, just an mdf torsion box top. I kept the base, made it a bit smaller and built a new top for it. Bought a large section of old gym floor for the main area, encased it with some jatoba flooring, added...
  3. Custom Fence Extension for Miter Saw

    June, 2012-On a recent project I needed to cross-cut multiple pieces to the exact same length. Measuring and cutting each piece individually got old fast. So I decided to build an extension fence for my DeWalt miter saw. The fence is on the left side of the saw. Two pieces are store-bought...
  4. Basic Router Table

    I've basically finished my router table. The stand is a simple construction of 2×4s. I plan to install some casters on the legs and put in some plywood to serve as a shelf. Attached to the stand you can see that I added an electrical outlet and switch. I don't want to reach under the top to...
  5. Drill Press Table

    As I blogged, I built myself a drill press table. Mostly MDF, Laminate, lots of T-Track, and some Sipo banding to fancy it up.
  6. Miter Saw Retractable Stop and Hinged T-Track

    I decided to upgrade my sliding miter saw workstation. That included making a T-track fence (using a special bit from MLCS) and retractable and adjustable positive cut stops. I hinged the first 12 inches of the fence on both sides of the miter saw, using a piano hinge, to be able to flip the...
  7. Router Table Top

    I worked very diligently this weekend to finish the router table top. I added the formica veneer to the substrate, trimmed it. White veneer for the top and a dark veneer for the bottom. I did this so I would know which side is up! Just kidding-I needed the rest of the 4×8 white formica for...
  8. Simple drill press table, in a vise

    So I finally got around to making my drill press table. The table itself is very simple. Just two sheets of melamine I had laying around glued together, with some T track, and a melamine fence. The T track is used for fence positioning, plus I can also use various hold downs or stop blocks...
  9. Bandsaw featherboards

    Just a quick featherboard based on one I saw that James E McIntyre made. The flexible bit is a squeegee from Amazon that someone recommended to me. That's 4 inches long, but there are 6 inch ones if you're resawing bigger stuff. Pretty quick build. I cut the groove on the table saw (1/4 and...
  10. Miter Saw Station

    Here's my new miter saw station my brother and I put together this weekend. To make room we tore down some cabinets that were in the garage when I moved in. It's nothing special, I used some baby blue Formica covered plywood I got free a while back. I built the base out of some 2×4's and...
  11. Dedicated Cutting Board Glue Up Table

    I love making cutting boards but I have struggled with clamping the glue up (hasn't everyone?). I had a glue up jig but it usually occupied the space on my table saw outfeed table which invariably created problems when I needed to use the saw. I decided that I needed a "dedicated space" for...
  12. First Cross Cut Sled

    My first cross cut sled. Enjoy.
  13. Flip Top Clamping Cart

    I'm working on a Flip Top Cart for Rockler that utilizes their T-Track top on one side and i'm making a jig for gluing up panels, cutting boards, doors on the other. How it works: Video More Info: Flip Top Clamping Cart How I made the Dados: Dados
  14. Flip Top Clamping Cart Pt.2

    I just finished the Flip Top Clamping Cart for Rockler! I made a youtube video if you guys wanna check it ou! YouTube: Video How I made the Dados: Dados
  15. Mini crosscut sled for small parts + miter attachment

    I've been meaning to build a crosscut sled for some time and debating what size I should make it. A lot of sleds out there are pretty massive and cover pretty much the whole table. While this can be practical for cutting large panels, it can also be bulky and discouraging to use. Besides, what I...
  16. Drill Press Table and Cabinet

    What do you do when you land a "new" Jet JDP-17MF Drill Press on the FB Marketplace? Well, first you give your buddy the 1950's Delta/Milwaukee benchtop drill press you had. THEN….then you build a cabinet and table. Except….the chuck was lower than my previous setup. I'm 6" tall. I'd rather...
  17. Miter saw station with integrated stop block, drill press and extension wing

    I've been planing to build a dedicated miter saw station for a while but had a few restrictions and considerations I wanted to make sure I addressed. - First off, I wanted it to be affordable-> lumber cost for this build = $90. - Next I wanted to keep the footprint relatively small (same as the...
  18. Festool stop flag / fence stop DIY (Post).

    Festool stop flag / fence stops DIY usefull on all T-tracks. I got tired of moving my fence stop from the table saw to the MFT3 table and was about to order a fence stop the other day. But…, I decided to try and make one my self instead, why not… It will be fun to try, I got plenty of time, to...
  19. Upgraded Layout Table

    Tired of trying to clamp my projects to the edges of my layout table, I looked into how I could make things better. I soon learned of the wonderful world of T-track. The original design of my table came from a Lowe's woodwork magazine many years ago. The table is designed to have a replaceable...
  20. Portable Assembly Table for B&D Workmate

    This is my first post to Lumberjocks. I've been a longtime reader and looker, but just never bothered to register. Just thought I'd contribute something rather than just looking at all the amazing projects people post here. I have a list of projects coming up that will greatly benefit from...
