I make a lot of small picture frames for gifts. But there is a couple of challenges: mitering the small pieces accurately and holding them safely. So I have made a jig designed to help with this. It is nothing more than a shallow box attached to a miter gauge runner.
If you do not have a store-bought tapering jig for your tablesaw, you easily can make one from scrap to safely and accurately cut tapers on legs and other angled workpieces. Here is an easy way to make repeatable angled rip cuts.
Here is a no nonsense router jig that helps you trim solid-wood edging perfectly flush with plywood panels. No more heavy sanding and no risk of sanding through the thin plywood veneer. The jig base and handled fence enable you to safely keep the router stable and square on the workpiece.
The opening in a zero-clearance insert is just a single saw kerf. And this gives you two main benefits. First, it prevents tearout along the cut line because the cut is supported on both sides. Second, it provides an added measure of safety when ripping thin pieces.
The plan says: For convenience and safekeeping store your tools in this handy tool chest. It can be folded when not in use or fastened to the wall in position shown. The pattern method simplifies building. Cut each piece according to size pattern indicates then assemble according to step by step directions.

Resawing is cutting thin pieces of wood from a thick piece of stock. (In effect, ripping on edge.) A quick way to do this is on the table saw. Before you get started though, there are two safety precautions that are a must. First, to reduce the chance of kickback, use a zeroclearance insert with a splitter (see Photo at this site). Second, be sure to use a push block when making a cut.
While using a pushstick to rip some thin strips, I realized that there must be a better, safer way to get the work done. This fence-riding pusher provides downward pressure on the workpiece and keeps your hand well clear of the blade.

Long before iceboxes became a common household item, frugal homemakers everywhere stored their bread and pastries in a pie safe. The decorative punched-tin panels allowed ventilation while protecting ...
When Doug came upon an 45-star antique version of Old Glory that was in use the year his house was built, he just had to have it to display in his home. The couple was unsure how to safely protect and display the fragile piece of fabric, so they asked Ron to help.
One of the most popular country projects we have published was the punched-tin pie safe from the August 1992 issue. Now, we decided to follow that project with this functional and decorative wall-hung...
A palm router packs a big punch into a compact size. This makes it easy to use and gives you more control and great visibility. But sometimes it is easier, and safer, to bring the workpiece to the router. So I gave my palm router an upgrade and built this multitool. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.

You can make mortises with a fixed-base router mounted in a router table. To make a mortise this way, you have to lower a workpiece onto a spinning bit. It takes a little bit of setup to do this safely and correctly.
My table-mounted router seemed ideal for shaping 3/4 inch stock into knobs for a box I was building, but the small blanks--only 1 1/2 inch square--would make the job hazardous to my hands. So I built the jig, shown here, to hold onto the blanks.
