    Brainstorming for ideas... Well the sawboard is a pretty simple jig, but man is it invaluable! The other day I needed to rip long taper cuts on a 2×6 and it was just the tool. I have been thinking about incorporating some holding clamps to the base to make it quicker to set up and use. This is...

    Finally a Space of My Own We finally got our basement a bit more organized and painted, thus giving me a space that I can actually call a workshop. The two photos below show the area I'm working in. The oil tank is a feature because I can put drawings or notes on it with magnets. They don't...

    Quick and Easy Drawer Pulls This is one of my earliest videos. I had built some shop cabinets and I needed some drawer pulls, so I figured I would make some using an old plastic cabinet handle as a template. A year later and they still work, but I have a different, more comfortable design...

    Veneered Panels/Framing the Top Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I'll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the...

    Project Intro A friend has commissioned a special project from me for his wife. She collects "Christmas Houses". I gather that these are porcelain or ceramic buildings that light up and are displayed in "Villages" around the house. His wife wants a set of tiered shelves that are round, allowing...

    Improved Taper Jig I made this taper jig to replace the old metal one i have been using. This is a simple table saw jig that makes cutting tapered legs much safer. I have been cutting all of my tapers at the band saw because I wasn't comfortable at the table saw. This jig will definitely speed...

    I've searched around these forums against the topic "mating existing crown to old". The discussions tend to cover the dilemma of mating old and new profiles. My situation seems unique: specifically, I need to miter new crown into existing to make a 90 degree inside corner. I removed a 12"...

    So we have all seen the sites that tout the most plans, the cheapest. The question I pose is this, which is it? Or, without saying it depends on what I'm looking for. Just an overall opinion of the "best" is fine. Thanks.

    The project I am working on requires 4 circle-ish shapes that are about 6 inches in diameter and the thickness tapers from 3/4" to 1/32" or so. I am using poplar because this part will not be seen, but it will act as a spacer between two pieces of oak. If that was not clear, perhaps this would...

    I don't know if this is in all franchises but my local WC is having a blowout event and selling the 14" BS for $749.99 for a ONE DAY ONLY SPECIAL on Wed. 9/12/2012. I just got an email with notice. I did NOT see it on their website. FYI, if interested. FWIW, I have had mine for +3 years and...

    I think that there are some skills you assume you will have to learn and others that came unexpectedly when becoming a woodworker. Some folks have always been around tools since they were young, others developed an interest later in life without ever having this background. When I started, I...

    I have had my lathe less than 5-days and turned 1 1/2 pieces (second piece is still on lathe to be completed) and when I tried to switch from a 'live end' to a 'drill chuck' on the tailstock, IT WAS FROZEN IN PLACE. I figured I had done something wrong and immediately did an Internet search...

    My next project is a pedestal table. The pedestal is square but tapers up. Any ideas? I was thinking about cutting the taper then the miter on each side???

    My first forum post! Need some assistance. Just put a riser on my 1 hp 14 inch grizzly and put the blade they included on the saw. Read that tension should be light on the blade. Did some practice cuts attempting to get the smoothest cut. Cutting 3/4 fir plywood and making a thein baffle...

    I have a project that has some 1" x 2" x 3/4" pieces that I need to put a .25 radius edge on. What method would you use for this? I need a safe solution. M

    I've searched everywhere I know to look and haven't found what I need. I'm trying to locate a medium format negative scanner that I can rent. I have a lot of 2.25" negatives I need to convert to digital but not enough to justify buying a scanner. If anyone has any ideas, please share. Thanks.
