  1. Router sled, slabbing table, track saw table, do-all table

    I said in other posts, I got a steal on a bunch of white laminated ply and T-Track. I made this new slabbing table for flattening slabs. It also has accessories to make a sacrificial table for the...

    Today my shop mate sent me this photo:
    436116

    He put a plug in the finishing room. Well, we really very rarely spray in there, and it’s a GFCI, so I can just trip it if I spray. I got a good...
  3. There should be, but I will check it out. My...

    There should be, but I will check it out. My shopmate surprised me by hanging all the ply and wiring the fan. I had planned on running conduit. In fact, I had bought all the stuff. The landlord...
  4. Workshop tour- new finishing room, metal shop, woodworking, and merrymaking

    You may remember that I went in with a couple of other guys to pool tools and money and make a dream workshop. That is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. I have been busy building a finish...
  5. I actually thought of this, but I almost never...

    I actually thought of this, but I almost never use the tape on the fence because I seem to always be trying to meet some unachievable level of perfection, and my fence has a 1/32” thick line that...

    I have 25’ of track and yes, I do use all 25 at one time! Problem is, that does not work so well for 3” thick slabs. Even 2” is a workout, although it does it. For 4” and up, we get out the 16...

  8. Long fence for ripping big stuff

    I like a large infeed on the fence when truing up long boards. This fence slips right over the stock fence and makes setup and removal easy. On the bottom of the fence is a hole exactly the size of...

    That makes sense. I am going to do this for the shop where I teach, which doesn’t have a very good miter slot on the outfeed.
  11. Edge straightener? Jointer-ish thing for the table saw.

    I don’t want to call it a “jointer” because it really just gets the edge straight on rough sawn lumber, but here is what I made last night. It has a miter slide on bottom and slides in my miter...

    I have been setting up the new shop and also teaching woodworking so I have been quite busy. I do look at SMC but have intentionally avoided reading too many posts because I need to focus on my...

    Here is the router and dust collection mounted. 435302
  14. Router table with dust surround for router

    Well, just sharing this for anyone looking for ideas. I am waiting on the miter slot to arrive- it seems I somehow deleted it unwittingly from my order and have to now reorder it!

    The incra...

    Not long ago, their CEO brought his TWO yachts to the harbor. One is for owner and guests, and the other is for crew and staging for play toys. We watched as a helicopter flew from one yacht to the...

    Ours has dock height doors, but we built a ramp for the bikes. It is so nice to work on my bike in a huge shop that doesn’t leak. I had a space in an old warehouse for the bike that leaked. Now it...
  18. The saw is exactly the same height as a Unisaw,...

    The saw is exactly the same height as a Unisaw, and the attachment only requires a few holes in the edge of the top and in the side. I could easily see it being adapted. It does adjust for height...

    Actually, it’s the same guy I got the hand tools from. He is closing shop. He has an old Delta radial arm saw as well, but I have spent enough for now. Still looking for a shaper. By the way, I...

    Thanks, Tom; I wasn’t aware it was their house brand. I was skeptical, but this kind of saw almost never comes available here, and ya gotta strike while the iron is hot. It seems well-made, and was...

    Small home shop vs large away shop

    Someone once asked on this forum if they should get a small shop at home, or go for a larger shop off-site. I am moving my home shop out and trading up to a full size, dedicated, professional shop. ...

    Just realized Mark had his water bottle sitting on the saw table in that last pic. Remind me to kick him for that.
  23. Gloat: I got a Woodtek 5hp 12” slider

    It started out as going with a friend to buy some plywood. It ended up with me buying a 5hp sliding saw and dust collector. The saw came with outfeed table with custom cabinets, lots of blades, a...

    Set up my new (to me) 12” 5hp sliding table saw. Woot! I can remove body parts even faster now. Post pending on the new saw.

    Haha, this gives me a great idea for a spoof video.



    I am having the person I got it from write a bio of the original owner of the tool box and am including it in the box.
