  1. A First Time for Everything! Tablesaw Jig! turns both inside and out of wood bowl!

    I don't think I've had this much fun with a Jig in a long time.. Check out the attached video to watch this really cool little jig in action! Using the jig i am able to use my table saw to create the traditional parabolic curved shape on the outside of a wood bowl. Fun project with great results!!!
  2. Kerfmaker... and another

    after reading several blogs, I couldn't help but try my hand at making this (made mine out of Goncalo Alves ). from Bridge City's KM1 to this very simple design, it seems inevitable that others will join. the build is very straightforward, rabbet a piece of any wood, cut in half, add a stop...
  3. And yet another diy gripper pushblock

    I have been a lurker for several years now, and decided that it was time to come out of the woodworking closet and share a few of my own projects. Like many, I have admired the concept of the Gripper Pushblock, but have been turned off by the cost. There are several designs in this forum that...
  4. Narrow Board and Thin Strip Cutting Jig

    EDIT: THIS PROJECT WAS EDITED ONLY TO ADD A LINK TO THE DRESSED OUT TABLE SAW This project is part of a bundle of projects building some basic shop tools and table saw jigs. The project series concludes with dressing out the table saw. As each project is posted links are added to the items in...
  5. Crosscut Sled

    I made this Crosscut sled early last year, I finally bought a real Tablesaw and it was time for a decent sled. I spent a little bit of money on the runners and tracks, but overall I am very pleased with the Sled. Since I have been milling my own lumber, I have been working with wider boards and...
  6. Simple but super accurate tablesaw microadjuster

    Accuracy is everything when doing fine woodworking. Unfortunately I've never found a reasonably priced, accurate device to make very tiny adjustments on the tablesaw. The old tap tap method is frustrating and too often inadequate to get super accurate cuts. This easy to make and use device...
  7. Mantle Clock

    I made this mantle clock out of cherry and mahogany. We used an oil based polyurethane finish. I chose a white piece of glass for the front of the clock as i thought it matched best with the rest of the clock.
  8. OCTOGON DISPLAYS

    Octogons made of beech, finished with walnut stain and nonglossy laquer. Purpose is to be used as display for various small things. Diameter is 65mm. Due saw hight limitation when 45 degree angled (when sawing on right side), I had to make simple jig for my tablesaw roller bed - so cut was made...
  9. Steve Latta Tenoning Jig

    I'm posting this kinda as a public service on Lumberjocks. I was looking through some of the others already posted, and couldn't find Steve Latta's version, which is, IMHO for the time invested and material cost, (sure, you could do better or go overboard) the best. Steve writes for...
  10. Single Blade Box Joint Jig alias digital box joint jig

    I saw the idea for a single blade box joint jig on the Woodfather.com website. He has a SketchUp plan Which can be downloaded as well as an instruction video. I deviated a bit from his plan as I reused my Digital box joint jig sled for this build. The principle behind the jig is quite simple...
  11. Tablesaw Jig. Turns tablesaw into a Lathe!

    Here is a crazy cool way to use a tablesaw to do lathe work! Turn blanks for turning? No problem.. have a bunch of round tenons to cut? No problem.. need to make a bunch of perfectly matched spindles for stair or railing.. This jig can do it! I love to design and build woodworking machines...
  12. Octagonal Tray with Angled Finger Joints - New and Improved!

    After my first attempt a few weeks ago, I decided I could do a better job of making this style of tray. So I put on my thinking cap and managed to come up with a much higher quality product which I am very happy with. As I put more effort into this one, I thought I should film it too. It's...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    So it's time for me to do something about dust collection. I'm slowly putting together a plan for my shop which includes a dedicated DC, but in the meantime I will be using a shop vac with a Thien Separator. I've seen a lot of people using duct tape and what not to get the hoses to fit properly...
  14. Jigs & Fixtures
    I have a Unisaw with a 52" fence. Needless to say, cutting a forty-five on 3/4" stock longer than its capabilities is a challenge. I could run against a sacrificial fence, but that requires me to rely on the cut portion, in back of the blade, to keep the cut straight. Experience will, more...

    Build a Finger Joint Jig Recently I posted a video covering common woodworking joinery ( ) with the help of a few friends. In that video I talked to you all about making finger joints on the table saw and showed you a finger joint jig in the process. Well as I promised, here is the complete...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I picked up one of these with the understanding that you aren't going to get a workhorse for $50 bucks. However, I have noticed that when I lower the spindle even a little bit, I can grab it and move it about an 1/8" in any direction. This seems crazy, even for the cheapest drill press on the...
