Large Panel Sled

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Large Panel SledThis is a 24 x 36 panel sled was made to trim the edges on a large laminated desktop for a desk I was making. I closely followed the Sled design by Frank Howarth illustrated in his YouTube video entitled Big Table Saw Sled (see https://youtu.be/4p0UTVUXh48). The Sled is made from 1/2 Russian birch with an oak fence and has some unique features in that it rides in only one miter slot and has only one fence on the front of the Sled rather than the rear. These features, along with two mounted hold down clamps, allow the Sled to be used with very large panels.

Mahogany Writing Desk

Furnished content.

Mahogany Writing DeskThis desk was made from the plans given in the article Providence Writinng Desk by Mario Rodriquez in Popular Woodworking April 2009 issue #175. The Desk is made from true Honduras mohogany exported before Honduras stopped exporting Mahogany. The drawer runners and guides are made from hard maple. Floating drawer bottoms are made from 1/4 russian birch plywood.Finishing was accomplished by first sanding with 80, 120, 150 and then 220 grit sandpaper. Then, per the authors direction, a coat of sanding sealer was applied and rubbed out using #0000 steel wool. Then I applied 3 coats of clear satin brushing lacquer. Then, I sanded very lightly with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper and rubbed the desk out with wool lube and #0000 steel wool again. Finally, a coat of Minwax finishing wax was applied.

Table Saw Storage Drawers

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Table Saw Storage DrawersAdded these plywood drawers underneath my table saw extension table after I got tired of walking around my Saw to the other side of the shop every time i needed a push stick, blade, jig or feather board. Now, all the things I need for my table saw are right next to the saw. No telling how much time I save with those things closer at hand!
