Roller Stand Brace

The roller stand I have in my shop really comes in handy. It is quick to set up and adjust and provides the extra support I need at the table saw, drill press, etc. But it does have one minor flaw. The folding design of the legs can make it a little unstable. If a workpiece hits the roller wrong, it can fold right up and flop over. But rather than put up with this annoyance, I tried to come up with a good solution.

Under table storage trays

I discovered a simple way to make use of the space underneath my workbench top and behind the skirt without re-engineering the base for drawer boxes.

Dowel Gauge

Doweling can turn dicey when the dowels do not quite measure up to their stated diameter-or the hole you drill is too shallow or too deep. The solution? Build our 4-in-1 dowel gauge.

Rack, Handsaw

I own a small but very useful collection of handsaws. My problem was finding a handy and safe place to store them. The answer was a simple wall storage rack that keeps the saws out of the way but still easily accessible, as you can see in the photo.

Rack, Finishing Stack

While building a small bookcase, I stumbled on an age-old problem: how to apply finish to all six sides and edges of the shelves in one sitting. (And, how to handle and store the freshly finished pieces until they dried.) This time, though, I figured out a solution.

Stand, Revolving Finishing

(Webmaster note: No measurements given but pictures and description should be enough to make a project for your workshop) There is more to spraying a finish than squeezing the trigger on a spray gun. To get a smooth, even finish, you need to spray all sides of a project, if possible. Which is precisely the idea behind this spray finishing station. You simply set the project on the rotating turntable, then spray, spin, and spray again. So it is much easier to get even spray coverage than having to drag an air hose and spray gun around the project.

Support for the workshop

The Idea Shop 5 wall cleat system featured on page 86 of the November 2003 issue of WOOD works great for supporting more than cabinets and tool racks. This easy-to-build light support fits and locks onto the same cleat, and can be located near any number of machine operations.

Scrollsaw Auxiliary Table

...I made a smooth-sliding auxiliary top out of a piece of Plexiglass...The Plexiglas is the same size as the saw table and has a hole only a bit larger than the blade to provide more workpiece support. I attached it with spray adhesive.

Fixture steps to lend a hand

To support workpieces, I made a simple T-shaped fixture that secures to my portable clamping workstation. By adjusting the height of the fixture, I can use it with various tools, such as my tablesaw, radial-arm saw, router table, etc. inches

Reamers, Tapered

I dug out an old compass saw blade that had the right taper and put a scraping edge on its backside while Richard turned a hardwood stock to the same taper. Between us, it took about 1-1/2 hours. I still use this tool. The price is right, the effort minimal, and you can make a reamer of whatever length, bore, and taper you need.

Extension Cord Storage

Without my small collection of extension cords, I think work in the shop would slowly grind to halt. But trying to keep these cords untangled and easily accessible was always a major challenge. The answer to this housekeeping problem was this storage rack.

Mortising Machine, Horizontal (PDF)

What makes this mortising machine so fantastic is the fact that it can create perfect mortises quickly and easily. The way it works is simple. The workpiece is clamped to a sliding table, and the router is mounted to a carriage that travels on a pair of drawer slides. By pulling the lever arm forward, the router bit is plunged into the workpiece. Then you just slide the table back and forth to rout the mortise. The whole thing takes about 30 seconds. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.
