  1. Taper Gauge

    Had to post this to go along with my other project. I bought a reamer from The Windsor Institute. I was a little worried when I got it because I didn't have the measurements for the taper that would be required to fit into the reamed hole. I e-mailed Mike Dunbar, the Dean of the Institute, to...
  2. Dowel end reducer

    First special thanks to Matthias Wandel for his website that gave me the confidence to try this. I needed the ends of dowels trimmed down. 1/2" dowel with a section only 3/8" diameter. I wanted to explain how easy this was for others that may need this but don't want a dedicated tool. So the...
  3. Taper Jig - Yet Another

    As part of building my materials cart, I need to taper the partitions for the lumber side of the cart. If this was the only taper requirement I had, it would have bee easier to create a one-time jig. But, since I have a few other projects coming up that will need taper cuts too, I decided to...
  4. Taper Jig for Tablesaw

    Making my first table. I needed a jig to taper 30" legs from 1 5/8 to 3/4 and came up with this design so I wouldn't have to make another jig again in the future. Holes are predrilled to be able to move the clamps to the middle of the riser blocks or the other side of the riser blocks, giving a...
  5. Adjustable Taper/Ripping Jig

    Adjustable Taper/Ripping Jig I wanted to make a ripping jig and I researched and saved many ideas. The best I found that suited my needs was the adjustable taper/ripping jig from Woodsmith Shop. This jig can be used both on the Table saw and your Router Table. It's an adjustable jig so you can...

    Top,sides,and back are oak veneered particleboard with solid oak edging.Legs,drawer and knob are solid oak.Legs taper inwards,cut in a thickness planer with a jig,everything joined with biscuits and notched web frames inside dados.
  7. Little Bridge for A Customer's Pond

    A lady asked me to replace her old "bridge" with a new one. The old one had a ridiculous arch in it that cause many people to slip and fall if it was even slightly wet. I wish I had taken a picture of it. I put three 2×4's underneath and tapered them at the ends to meet the ground. I am always...
  8. Shaker Side Table in Black Walnut

    This is a shaker-inspired side table that I made using plans from WoodWorker's Journal April '07. This is my second wood project. There are some techniques from the first project that I'd like to work on as well as trying out new tools and techniques that I've seen along the way. New...
  9. Kitchen Occasional Table

    This table was commissioned by a co-worker for his mother. All the dimensions were determined by the the client including the unusual height. When designing this table, I decided to use long tapers on the inside edges of the legs to give the table less of a blocky look and feel. The table is...
  10. Custom Sewing table

    This sewing table was commissioned by a lady that knew exactly waht she wanted in a sewing table but was unable to locate it through retails sources. She wanted a table that was small enough to fit in the space she had but large enough to utilize that space well with a flip up extension that...
  11. Legs for Ikea TV Stand

    JUST THE LEGS. CABINET IS IKEA I moved in with my girlfriend, and she already had a whole entertainment center. I had this TV stand and didn't know what to do with it. It originally sat flat on the ground. So I made 4 legs out of 1X4 red oak with blocks of 3X3 at the top where they attached to...
  12. Orchid Tables

    This is one of a run of 12 tables I did of the same design after prototyping six or seven with different table top and skirt attachment methods. The "final prototype" was commissioned for a gentleman to hold a single orchid, thus the name of the tables. The skirt is made of hard maple wrapped in...
  13. Taper Jig

    I chose to make this one from the Woodsmith 'Shop Notes' magazine as it offered more features for doing tapers. Rockler does have one that is similar, but at $80, I chose to make my own. I think the plan I have is better than the Rockler one. More features and 4 fence knobs instead of just...
  14. Mid-Century Inspired Coffee Table

    Last year some of our good friends got married, and my college roommate and I decided to build them a coffee table. They are really into mid-century modern style furniture, and I've always like that style as well, we looked at some pictures for inspiration and sketched out some ideas over some...
  15. Panel Tapering Sled

    We often see tapering jigs to taper lumber at the table saw, but rarely to taper panels. Here's one. A long runner, a 1/2" panel board, a coupling nut (or dowel), two support arms, few carriage bolts, knobs and fender washers, spay adhesive and fine grit sanding paper are required, what I'm...
  16. Jigs from scrap - crosscut sled, spline, taper, clamp rack

    These are a few jigs I made from scrap. Nothing special. Just thought I'd add to the store of information here. The spline jig is very simple and pretty much self-explanatory. Just runs alongside the fence. As much effort as I put into getting the cross-cut sled fence perfectly square when...
  17. Taper jig

    If you haven't made a tapering / straightening jig it is a must! This is mine based on a rockler free plan I found. It's 4 ft long 12" wide with kreg t-slots. I opted to make my own star knobs & hold Downs. The knobs I made from a dense oak pallet. Hold Downs are frommaple I made this...
  18. Shave Horse

    I've put it off for a loooong time. I wanted to make it out of a log … out of greenwood. But, that material isn't readily accessible. Combined with work schedule … blah, blah, blah. I know … I know … excuses, excuses. Well, I finally just grabbed some store bought, kiln dried lumber and made...
  19. Nightstand Project

    Here are the Maple Bedside tables that I built. I used the plan from Wood Magazine Nov 2008. My wife bought me the plan here. I made a few changes. I built one deep drawer instead of two shallow drawers and I made the top a bit smaller. I also used pocket screws instead of mortise and tenon...
  20. Yet Another Tapering Jig For Wedges

    Every now and then I needed some kind of tapered piece of wood in the past. I then used to devise some makeshift contraption to quickly perform the task at hand. Afterwards the jig usually went into the bin. Today I made some wedges for a couple of small planes I intend to make. And so I...
