Does anyone cut coves on their table saws anymore? Something tells me it’s a dying art – Popular Mechanics from the 50’s and 60’s wrote about it several times but it’s dropped off since then in the woodworking and handyman mags. Anyhow, I hope this collection is useful to those who plan to cut their […]
Mortise and tenons have a noble heritage – woodworkers have used them for thousands of years to make great joints. And without tables saws too, much less table saw tenon jigs ;P We’re gonna leave you hanging when it comes to mortising, but we’ve got you covered on the TENONS!!! Without further ado, 13 Tenon […]

Well, that puts you in table saw territory buddy. This plan collection will have you cutting skinny strips like a pro.
When life hands you a snow shovel, head for the shop instead and get started on a snow sled! Nothing beats back the misery of frozen toes and noses like high speed descents. These sled plans didn’t quite fit in with our miter sleds, cross cut sleds and panel cutting sleds ;D (hawhaw!)
As KnotScott says, “This is raw and short, but the last one is worth going to the presses for…” He’s right, it’s worth going to press with! I moved the last one up to the front… It’s a table saw safety device that stops the blade when it senses your fingers. And unlike SawStop, it […]
We waste way too much time on the internet… so YOU can spend your time on the very best of the woodworking web! This week features some amazing stories. Tops in my book is the look of joy on that little girl’s face when she sees what her dad made for her. I hope you […]
