  2. My Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench

    It was very interesting to see Drew's Ultimate Tablesaw Cabinet posted a few days ago. Apparently he and I were working on similar projects over the holiday break. Here's what I call my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench. It's based on the Paulk design and incorporates many ideas I picked from...
  3. Table saw crosscut sled with incra miter slides and Kreg precision trac and stop kit

    After looking at all the cross cut sleds out there and having had a few of my own, I really wanted to make one that was functional and would help speed up production. I looked online and was unable to find what I was looking for, so I designed and built this. It has built in tracks for...
  4. Distressed Knotty Alder Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a door we constructed/installed for a customer that wanted a very specific look. They showed us a picture from a hardware manufacturer's website and wanted to make a very similar door. The door is made of new, kiln dried knotty alder and is a total thickness of 1.75″. There is a mixture...
  5. DIY parallel guides for Festool track

    As I mentioned in my right-angle guide project, I'm gearing-up to build some basement storage cabinets, and I'm planning to use the track saw heavily for cutting sheet goods to size. Taking inspiration from Mafe's parallel guides, I built a set for myself. Mine are slightly different than his...

  7. Sliding Interior Barn Door on the Cheap

    I can't tell you how good it feels to get finished with a project that you've put your heart and soul into for months! I've always wanted an interior sliding barn door, but I never had the perfect and functional spot for one until we moved. In this 'new to us' home their is an AC unit/storage...

  10. Reclaimed Grey Barn Siding Sliding Door

    Here's a nice looking grey siding covered sliding barn door we did. This wood came from Iowa. This cool door covers the entry to a pantry and uses our 8″ v groove wheel hardware. I love this oversized hardware. It glides so smooth. I used the new style black phenolic door guide I recently...
  11. Bookcase Headboard | Sliding Doors

    This is a headboard in black lacquer with sliding doors. This was a project that I built for somebody that payed their down payment, but ran into some problems and had to cancel the order. I kind of put it to the side for a couple months and decited to spray it with the bookcases I posted...
  12. Straight Track for Thomas the Tank Engine

    This might sound odd, but my 14 year old daughter asked if I could make some straight Thomas the Tank Engine track. It's not that she plays with it per se, but her little cousin has helped bring on a renaissance in her wooden Thomas trains. He plays with them when he visits. My daughter has...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    At the moment, the Grizzly/Shop Fox/Scheppach track saws are the cheapest on the market. That of course comes with some drawbacks. They don't perform as good as a Festool, for instance. If you read reviews, such as the one from the Wood Whisperer here: , you will find a pattern that the saw...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Just thought I'd start listing some of the sources I've come across for jig parts. For example, when I look for ratcheting knobs, Rockler shows up over and again, with ones for about five dollars each. Not bad, in the scheme of things, but it seems one should be able to do better. I came...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    During Grizzly's Cyber Monday sale, their track saw (alone) dropped in price to $99. At that price, I decided to chance it and put the effort in making all the tweaks to improve the saw. For those that haven't gone through all the reviews and YouTube videos, the common tweaks include: Track...

    Router Table Miter Slot Track or T-track? Until now I had no need for a track on my router table. Now I am thinking of installing one, but I have 2 questions for those with more experience on the matter. 1) Do I install a miter slot track or a t-track (on your opinion)? 2) What is the optimum...
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have been planning to build a Morris chair for some time and the plans from a recent edition of Popular Woodworking look pretty great. However, one of the reasons I started making my own furniture is because I am a much larger (6 foot 7 inches tall) than the average person. Up-sizing desks and...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Recently I purchased a straight clamping track from BORA TOOLS, the track came with several pieces that connect, the connections were a pain to get straight, and the rigidity when using the track for straight-lining with a saw or router was terrible. These tracks by Bora only come about 3 1/2...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am trying to figure out how to make a single, minimalist, modern door to put on a barn door track to separate our hall (which contains bedroom entrances and a bathroom entrance) from the dining room (and also main entrance to the home). The track would be installed on the hall side of the...

    Does anyone have a better way of making the Toys and joys tracks for the Abrams tank. Every time I try to drill out a 3/32" hole to attach the tracks the timber splits and cracks. I am open to any kind of suggestions. Thanks
