  1. Trim board tapering jig

    Trim board tapering jig 3"x 48" made from MDF to taper header boards
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Snake in a Box

    Boys and Girls, I had to take my previous project of Snake Jigsaw Puzzle just that slither further… The original puzzle took up far too much real estate propped up on it's stand in my cabinet and I thought that if it was discretely secreted away in a box, it would not suffer as much space...
  5. Taper Jig

    To do a project recently, I needed to make some tapered legs. I had never attempted tapered legs previously. After a bit of internet research, I learned about various ways to create tapers using a jointer, bandsaw, or tablesaw. My tool of choice is a tablesaw, so I naturally went this route...
  6. 1st posted project: tapering/straight-ripping sled

    This is a simplified version of a sled posted in either Woodsmith or ShopNotes. I did not add the miter slot runner and may never do so. I currently only use it against the saw fence. I never really understood the appeal of crosscut sleds until I used something like this. It's so massive...
  7. toy tops

    Made these analog tops for the grandkids, with a couple of them helping of course. I my model and oldest granddaughter holding up our latest creation. I call them analog because they work with old fashion string and muscles and "what you see is what you get" construction. I made one for each...
  8. Tapering and Jointing Jig

    Since the expiry date of my old tapering jig has exceeded, I decided to fabricate this new model that also allows to joint at the table saw or at the router table. The parallel base is a 9" X 28" piece of 5/8" MDF on which I laid out parallel lines for five sets of 3-1/2" long 1/4" carriage...
  9. Table saw tapering jig

    I made a small side table recently, and was using this to taper the legs: Well, let me tell you-that jig is just plain NOT safe to use when tapering narrow stock. My fingers were WAY too close to the blade for my comfort, so I set out to make a better jig. I basically used the idea from...
  10. 2 in 1 Tapering Jig for that Chair Project

    I made this dedicated jig to facilitate cutting the tapers on the legs for those 10 chairs I'll be making for the table which I made for my church. With this jig I can cut both the taper on each leg, plus the taper on the upper part of the back leg. It slides in the miter slot so the cut will...
  11. Clip board

    Simple clipboards using butt joints and glue. Mahogany walnut, maple and oak. Glued, planed, cut sanded and routed. Finished with linseed oil. The clips were removed from clipboards from staples (about a dollar each).
  12. Tapering Jig v1

    The alcove in the back of my garage where I store the tablesaw sits on a 3" high concrete pad, so one of the first things I made after getting the saw was this tapering jig so I could cut up 2×4s to make a simple ramp to get it down onto the garage floor. I based it mostly on the Rockler jig as...
  13. Tapering Jig

    I needed a tapering jig for an upcoming project. I built this one based on some pictures from the internet. I think it will do the trick.

  15. Jigs & Fixtures
    I bought this recently, and the instructions say to put the jig in the miter slot on the table saw, and trim off the excess section of the jig to establish a zero clearance zone. However, my Grizzly Table Saw's miter slots are fairly close to the blade when using this jig. Following Rockler's...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi, I am looking to make some inside storm windows to reduce the level of street noise and to improve the thermal insulation. I am living in a strata complex and I cannot replace the windows and frames without replacing the windows in whole complex. The current frames are from aluminum and...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    The clock plan that I recently started on shows a piece of white oak 4" x 9 5/8" being tapered from 1" thick at bottom to 3/4" at the top. The page of the plan in question is shown below: I'm a little stumped as to how I should go about tapering the thickness of a piece this size. I tried...
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am building matching end table, coffee table and sofa table for sale at a local furniture store. Have completed one of the side tables (pictures) and am faced with how to dimension the legs for the other pieces. Should the head and foot be the same width, therefore making the taper angle...

    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...
  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    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...
