  1. 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...
  2. Flower table ala Pottery Barn Kids

    My wife and I wanted to make a "ripoff" of a Pottery Barn Kids table. I started with a 2'x2' piece of 1/2" MDF for the top. I used a compass to make segments in the top. Then my wife traced a cereal bowl to get the right radius for the petals. I made legs by laminating pieces of 3/4" MDF scraps...
  3. Taper jig and edge jointer too

    I've made this tapering jig over a weekend, size is 12"x36". It's very simple and easily made with standard shop materials. The base is made from repurposed 3/4" plywood, that was a shelf before. And then some red oak for the runner and fence. The fancy handle is maple. I routed out a few slots...
  4. Tapering Jig (on the cheap)

    Yes, yet another jig to make (on the cheap) with scraps. You may only need this jig once or twice, or you may have a use for it quite a bit. I have a feeling now that I needed one and have finally built one, that I'll use it pretty often. Is it as pretty as a jig you can buy at a store or...
  5. Safe Tapered Leg Jig

    I've been searching for months for a tapered leg jig plan that was safe and accurate. I tried the hinge model and others that worked off the fence of a table saw, and I found them unsafe and imprecise. While surfing LJ's and several other sites, I came upon this page...
  6. My new safe tapering sled

    The base and bar of this tapering sled are made of sturdy plywood. I used the fantastic new Bessey autoadjustable toggle clamps and customized the length of the clamping arm to my needs. Its a solid jig that is safe and a joy to use.
  7. Taper Jig

    I had been wanting to make a tapering jig for a while and recently have the project that needs it. I looked around the internet for a couple of ideas and combined 2 ideas into this tapering monster. It's probably too long, but I like that the length means that it stays on the table unsupported...
  8. Tapering Jig

    I'm working a small table that has tapered legs and I needed a good way to make the tapers. When I was working on the mock-up of the table, I made quick one time use jig, to taper the legs. The jig worked ok but gave some inconsistent results. When it came time to make the final version of...
  9. End table from Wood Magazine plan

    Being as I'm working my way back from Jr. High woodshop (about 30 years ago) and I've never gotten around to purchasing any "nice" furniture I've been looking around for a set of plans for end-table/coffee-table/sofa-table or combinations there-of. Turns out the last issue of Wood Magazine has...
  10. Table saw tapering jig (why I needed a circle jig)

    Table saw tapering jig why I needed a circle jig… One morning my daughter said to me she needed a wedge to hold the door when she took out her bicycle, so I went to the work shop to make her one, only this time I decided to do it safe… So I made a jig for tapering cuts - no more freehand...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am intently searching for a woodworking plan to build a 12 rifle gun cabinet (or larger) but I am having no luck! I found one of Amish design for 14 guns but it was fully constructed, and I want to do the woodworking. I can only find cabinet plans that are about half the size I want. I am also...

    Cabinet & Top I've been wanting to build a new router table for a while now ever since I got rid of my old one. I've always like the Norm Abram style router table, I just needed some time to build one. Since the weather is getting nicer and it's not below freezing up here anymore, I finally got...

    Practicum: Application of Skills I'm switching up my original plan of doing all the lessons in the self-study course back-to-back, and am instead alternating with projects from Power Tool Woodworking for Everyone that utilize previously learned/practiced skills and techniques. The first batch...

    Getting Started My mother-in-law has expressed interest in a ladder shelf, but couldn't find exactly what she was looking for in stores. Specifically, she wants a ladder entertainment center, with a TV shelf in middle and ladder shelves at either end. This blog will attempt to chronicle my...

    Tapering Jig Design (Left or Right?) I had an occasion to cut a taper in the shop this afternoon and wondered why it really felt akward. Many of the tapering jigs seem backwards to me. or In cutting my taper, my left forearm would be just above the blade if I had not stepped to the right of...

    Video: Jointing small stock on the table saw I dont think this really deserves the "Projects" section. I set out to build a jig to allow me to square up small hardwood scraps. It ended up being a tapering jig with a different name.
  17. Jigs & Fixtures
    Hello, I needed lots of 2 sided tape, but it is very expensive. So I sacrificed 2 tape guns to make this. It puts two 1 inch rolls of tape together, so you can tape off and then stick your paper or plastic to the tape. I shared this with companies some years ago, they say its an old idea...
