Federal Tea CaddyHere's a just completed version of the Federal tea caddies that are so popular lately. Built per Rob Millard's generous instructions, this is a pine box veneered with crotch mahogany and homemade bandings, stringing, and paterae of holly, mahogany, ebony, and dyed veneers. It's finished with hydrated lime, Trans Tint yellow and golden brown dyes, and shellac, rubbed out with 400g and 600g papers and 4F pumice.

Step Stool reproduction A friend asked me to make a stool as close as possible in Red Oak to what the last two pictures are of a stool her father made her with plywood and screws.
No mechanical fasteners here just tusks and wedges. The angled mortise was a challenge by hand.
She will stain and finish to match her floors. Of course she gets a cut off to test color.

Shop Made Sliding Table for Tablesaw

It's kind of rough around the edges, and I'm still tweaking it, but here's my version of a sliding table for my table saw.

It gives me about 31" before the blade.

There are three 28" full-extension drawer slides (mounted flat), that control the range of motion before the blade. They're mounted under the top-most level, so as to allow only the top-most level to be pulled back, before the blade. This reduces the weight of the top that slides all the way back.

And there are three 24" full-extension drawer slides (mounted flat), that control the range of motion past the blade. This reserves most of the weight for when sliding beyond the blade (which involves both the top and the second level together), which doesn't usually require the full extension.

Even with the sliding table, I managed to keep the entire table saw setup completely mobile (ignore my claustrophobic shop.)

The beauty of using drawer slides, is that the table has a wide range of forward and backward motion, but the table itself doesn't have to be that long, like other sliding table setups I've seen.

The stacked forward and backward tables can be "locked" in place, because the slides have a built-in locking feature that would have kicked-in when the "drawers" were closed. It's nice because when I move the saw around the shop, the tables don't slide willy-nilly, but they're easily pushed out of their locked position when needed. They're in their locked positions in the first pic.


It was all based on the sliding table and cross-cut fence I found here.


Here is a video of how the table moves. It was taken with my cell, just to get something out quick, but I'll post some better footage soon.

Here is another video of the table in action while cross-cutting a wide panel.


Any questions at all, or if you want a pic from another angle, by all means, just ask in the comments.


Thanks for visiting.
