Shotgun Case

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Shotgun CaseI have enjoyed learning great information from so many of the experts on this site. I'm not at that level, but thought I would share my latest project.I was looking for a locking case to store my Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun under my bed. I keep my Sig P320 handgun in a Gunvault beside the bed, which is opened every night and locked during the day. I really like the electronic push button lock on this case, but couldn't find anything similar for my shotgun which would also fit into the tight space. So, I built one.I know that it can be opened with the right tools, but I think that applies to almost all cases of this type. It was a nice project to hone or learn new skills for making tight meters, dovetail joints, and hand chiseled hinge mortises. The wood is walnut and maple with 4 coats of Tung oil. The lock took some thought to install, since it's not meant for this application, but it works perfectly.I now have easy access to my shotgun in a case that opens very quickly, plus some new woodworking skills.

Goblet of Marblewood

Goblet of Marblewood11-1/2”
YG/HSThis is the Thing, during the making of which, I decided that I need to get better at keeping my tools sharp. I'm now the owner of a new grinder, and a Wolverine/Varigrind setup. It helped, and, I'm sure will help even more, once I've become accustomed to its use.I did try to go eccentric on this one. Here's what happened:I tilted the Thing in the chuck – just a little. Now, normally,when I tilt a Thing thusly, I stick a little magnet between the base and the rim of the jaws. In this case, there wasn't enough meat on the base to keep the magnet in place. The magnet is important because, as the the Thing wobbles about its central axis, the tool is skipping across while making the cut. Even with a very sharp tool, this imparts a lateral force against the wobbling Thing, which, for unassailable reasons, will tend to push the base back to its central-axis location. I tightened the chuck as brutally as I could, and this happened, nonetheless. So much for ducks-in-a-row on this piece. The “duck” I had coming along, when it moved, became the ziggurat you see supporting the captive ring. I mimicked the ziggurat in the base, and, just cuz I felt like it, added a little acorn between. Yes. I signed it, sorta. (I need to get better at finishing the bottoms of Things, too.Thank you. And, I apologize.

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.
And there are three 24" full-extension drawer slides (mounted flat), that control the range of motion past the blade.

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 tables don't move around 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 a 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.
