If you’d like even more great ideas for getting more from your router, go to: Router Tables at PlansNow. It’s made from two pieces of aluminum angle joined together by a small wood block (see end view below right). When gluing and clamping small parts together, it’s always a challenge to align large clamps to hold them in place as the glue dries.
Place a T-nut in each hole at the back edge of the stop block, slide a threaded rod through the holes in both of the blocks, and then screw them into the T-nuts, like you see in the side view below right. To use the clamp, loosen the wing nuts and place the parts to be clamped between the blocks. So, to store these and other small items, I built a pull-out storage case, like you see in the photo at right. While I was vacationing near my hometown in Ohio in August, I received a phone call from a long-time family friend, Dave Corwin, from Delaware, Ohio. Dave also commented that he really thought the simple resaw pivot block for the band saw was a great idea.

Fine Woodworking Magazine has created a forum where accomplished woodworkers share what they know with fellow enthusiasts.
Reviewed by Sacha GarayWhy Fine Woodworking?Fine woodworking encompasses material that, following your project, will leave you with flawless results. In the back panel of the project I made for the upcoming August 2013 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine is a small door. As I marked out the mortise for the hinges, I realized that the knife marks at the ends were as deep as they needed to be. I asked associate editor Randy Maxey why hand planes are an important part of a modern woodworking shop?
Phil Huber, a senior editor for ShopNotes magazine details in this seminar all the steps necessary for building a sturdy set of drawers on a router table.
First, he’ll demonstrate how to build drawers using a specialized drawer joint bit in just two simple steps. Filed under Custom Furniture, Podcast, Router Tables, ShopNotes Magazine, The Woodsmith Store, Wood, Woodsmith Store. The latest issue of ShopNotes magazine will be in your mailbox or hitting the newsstands soon. Finally, we’ve strayed from the shop just a bit with a fantastic new Modular Garage Storage unit.
When I saw the old, gas barbecue grill that my neighbor had thrown away, it gave me an idea. All I had to do was remove the tank and grill, paint the metal frame, and then build a couple of table supports. You can get more interesting woodworking e-tips like this each week from the editors of Woodsmith Magazine just for the asking. One of things I most appreciate about the designers at ShopNotes Magazine is that their shop benches, cabinets, and tool racks are as attractive and well-designed as any furniture project you may be building in the shop.
There’s one item that we have that the home shop might not is a dedicated finish room with a professional spray booth.
The spray booth arrived on several pallets stacked with all sorts of galvanized sheet metal parts and fasteners like an Erector Set spilled on the floor. With all of the use this spray booth gets, there’s a bit of overspray, so, the interior has a peel away coating.


Now, there are the tools that we own, and then there are the tools that we actually use (a much smaller list). A bench knife can quickly round the edge of a tenon that needs to fit into a routed mortise, clean a tight joint, bevel an edge, and do many tasks quickly and easily.
A bench knife should have a tapered blade so that the tip can get into tight spaces yet the base of the blade is stout enough for heavy cuts. And forget about A2, cryogenic steel, molecular packing, or any steel-related voodoo you may have heard about. When you design for ShopNotes Magazine you can’t help but develop an appreciation, even an obsession, for hardware. A few years back in ShopNotes, we did a version of an English carving vise that appeared in Issue No. General-purpose ACME thread has one start, or one continuous thread, the same as standard thread on bolts and screws. The second rule is to design mechanical projects from the beginning with a bit of float in them.
If you decide to build one of these working tools take some time to consider all your hardware options.

ShopNotes associate editor Randy Maxey came up with the idea to add the model to the magazines’ website. Other free downloads at the website include plans for the drawers, a short video animation of the workbench’s best features, and a fraction-to-decimal conversion chart.

So it’s important that all of my power tools be portable and take up as little space as possible.
Then, after removing the top of an adjustable clamping table, I mounted the router table to the clamping table stand, as shown in the left photo above.
Best of all, I can remove the router and quickly fold the table up to store it against the wall whenever it’s not in use (right photo). It’s hard to get the drill bit centered and keep the dowel from turning as the hole is drilled.
Then slip the clamping jig over the dowel and squeeze the kerf together with a small clamp.
A slotted hole at each end accepts a flange bolt from the table so you can quickly mount and adjust the fence to meet almost any drilling challenge. Put the pieces together by slipping the threaded rod through the adjusting block and adding washers and locknuts, like you see in the drawing and detail below.
I usually measure several times just to make sure I get it right.Then I made the simple drawer gauge shown in the photo below. They are drilled to hold flange bolts and two sections of threaded rod, as the illustration shows below.
Position the front of the clamping block to extend slightly beyond the edge of the base so you can turn the knobs and secure the stop block in place. The case is large enough to hold a couple of small plastic storage cabinets with lots of drawers (the kind you find at hardware stores and home centers).
A handle attached to the side lets me simply pull it out to get to the items and then push it back out of the way again. He said he really enjoyed the article and was especially tickled and surprised when I told him I wrote it.
This easy-to-build outfeed support gives you an extra hand when you need it — and stores easily when you don’t.
Each has probably influenced more people to get into the shop and actually build something than just about anyone else on Garrett’s list. Woodsmith, published by August Home Publishing (they also put out ShopNotes, Workbench, Garden Gate, and Cuisine at home), is unique in that it doesn’t just show you a pretty project, it helps you build the project with detailed step-by-step instructions and clear, concise drawings and photos. Paul’s goal was to have a woodworking magazine that not only informed, but also inspired its readers. And this is not a knock on Norm, but I’d rather read about woodworking and then go do it myself, than watch it being done on TV anyday. Whether you're a professional cabinetmaker or just starting out, you'll find practical information about the techniques, tools and machines of the trade.
This magazine, bursting with projects, techniques, step by step instructions, honest product reviews, contributions from the most accomplished in this field and inspiring photos serves its commitment to ensure you build on your skills and increase your understanding of design. Whether you re a professional cabinetmaker or just starting out, you'll find practical information about the techniques, tools and machines of the trade.


Hanging doors on butt hinges is no big deal if you’ve done it a few times, but this door proved interesting.
Then I began to mark the sides with my gauge (a Tite-Mark Mini), I realized that I could easily remove all the material with the gauge. In this issue, instead of our regular three projects for your home workshop, you’ll find four projects. All four tools were designed by Chris Fitch, senior project designer for ShopNotes and Woodsmith. This handy Precision-Cutting Jig makes the table saw (normally a great tool for heavy work) a perfect tool for cutting small parts. The metal frame of the grill would make a perfect roll-around tool stand for my miter saw.
This wall-mounted tool rack is no exception, another in a long line of ShopNotes fixtures I wish I had in my shop.
Precision acme thread can have up to five starts delivering much more lateral movement per revolution. Precision ACME threads are made to much higher standards as it’s often used for lead screws in lathes, milling machines, and industrial equipment requiring great precision and durability.
Not only will you get the satisfaction of using a tool that you’ve made, but, the tool can be built specifically to suit your requirements and style of work. And if you’re new to it, Google has provided dozens of video tutorials, an extensive Help Center and even live training classes that make it easy to start modeling your own projects right away. He thought it would be fun to provide readers with a professionally-designed project that they can actually take apart to really get a feel for the way it goes together before deciding to build it.
Then cross supports are glued into notches in the front and back to hold the sides together. A shallow dado is cut in the top of the runners at the mouth of the plane for the exposed iron.
With your block plane in the base, position the V-shaped groove formed by the runners over the edge of the workpiece. The receiver can choose from any of our 3,000 titles, and even have a single copy from each of their favourites without signing up to a subscription. All magazines sent by 1st Class Mail UK & by Airmail worldwide (bar UK over 750g which may go 2nd Class).
So I built the simple drill press table and fence with a replaceable insert you see in the photo above. Two bottom-mounted T-tracks attach the table to the drill press, as you can see in detail ‘b’ and the photo at right. So I built the micro-adjuster you see in the photo above using spare parts I had around the shop. Then you can cut a dado at the bottom of the fence to hold the piece of L-shaped aluminum in place. This allows the aluminum strip attached to the fence to be moved forward and backward one thread at a time when you make fine fence adjustments. Now, I don’t have to worry about the “numbers.” The gauge always shows me the exact distance. Next, slide the four flange bolts in the T-track, slip the blocks over the bolts and add the washers and wing nuts. Finally, snug up the star knobs and tighten the wing nuts to lock the clamping block in place. When I married, our first home was across the street from Dave’s, so we became friends as well as neighbors. Full of relevant, reliable and detailed information, Fine Woodworking can prompt you to experiment or provide you the courage to try something you haven’t done before. The outside profiles can be made with a table saw, router, or band saw and the recess on the inside of the boxes is made using a hand-held router and a simple shop-made template.
You can get a look at this and the other projects and techniques in the latest issue, ShopNotes No. What's SO good about Fine Woodworking?Fine Woodworking explores every aspect of this trade. Work at this scale is mostly the same as working on furniture or cabinets, but some tasks require different tools, or the use of standard tools in a different way.
All it takes are some basic tools you probably already have: a hacksaw, a few files, and a drill press.
There were three of us woodworkers on the block, so we could often be found in each other’s shop on any given day sipping a cup of coffee and telling a story or two. So in the modernising world where power tools are more frequently used, Fine Woodworking magazine also keeps alive some of the more traditional methods of woodworking.
Check out the subscription offer while you’re there, and get yourself a free preview issue. Fine Woodworking is an interactive magazine with its links to online tutorials and its features of accomplished woodworkers inviting you to learn the tricks of the trade.

    Certainly price sharing, and each nice space hand-screw clamps are less seemingly than the.
