This is a really fun project that is ever expanding. The idea was to make each holder unique as well as pleasant to look at.

Shopbuilt – Tenoning Jig

This tenoning jig was inspired by the micro jig dovetail clamps. I seen the clamps scrolling through instagram and I thought I could probably come up with a use for them. The tenoning jig is self positioning for any mortise and tenon that requires the the mortise to be in the exact centre, like a cabinet door.

The jig is contracted using 3/4" plywood

To use the jig you first zero it by moving the front fence till it just kiss the blade and lock it. then move the reference plate into the mortise, tight against one side and the rear fence. than tabour first pass. now you can flip your workpiece and repeat. Had to explain, easier to watch the video:)
You’ll have to watch the video to see how it works because it to hard to explain:)

Shopbuilt- Tapering jig

 

 

 

A table saw tapering jig is pretty handy to have around the shop to not only make tapers but to also joint an edge on a board.

featured project – 30 Days Meteorite Trophy for David – 30 of 30!!!

Giaco Whatever is a new subscription for me and i feel like I have been missing out because his videos are so good. I really love makers/content creators that put just is much time into their videography as they do the project. This video is his thirtieth video in thirty  does which is just incredible consider the level of production and project design involved in each video.

Thanks for the great video content Giaco Whatever!

make sure you check him out on youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYH-XXUE2QDaWKvABsWJh8w/featured

Feature Project – How to make reversible bench dogs

I gotta start off by saying I love the Cactus! workshop channel, its full of quality projects and sets the standard for videography. In this video he designs and creates reversible bench dogs that can be easily raised up for when being used or simply turn them 180 degrees and they will drop flush with the table. He also makes some handy collars to go around the dogs to allow for a wedge style clamp. I also like how he incorporates a little metal working into the project, a mini metal lathe is on my short list for new shop tools;)

make sure you subscribe to him on youtube and check him out on instagram!!!

Feature Project – Paul Jenkin’s drill press table

If you’ve been following me at all you know I’m a sucker for a good shop project and this video from Paul doesn’t disappoint. This drill press table was actually designed by Paul’s wife Natalie in Fusion360. I think what I like about it so much is the clean, straight to point design, no added clutter. There are really only a couple a features I feel are necessary in a drill press table.

  • easy way to take on and off
  • replaceable insert plate
  • fence with stop block
  • clamp option for small material

I feel Natalie did an excellent job in incorporating these core features. If you want to do a little bit of reading on this project here is the link to there website. Enjoy:)
