The four earring case is made from purpleheart and maple. Dimensions are 4 1/4 inches wide, 2 1/2 inches tall and 2 inches deep.
The miter spline jig holds boxes and the like in place while cutting the slot for later insertion of the spline. miters joints are notoriously weak joints and a spline will greatly enhance its strength.
This jig was presented on King’s Fine Woodworking as a video and I bought the plans from their website.
I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and lived there until I was 19 years old. I moved to California in 1963 but I try to visit my hometown as often as I can.
This is the Union Terminal train station that, as a kid, I would go to often just to play on the grounds
Added this WEN air filtration system to my garage workshop. I can already tell it is taking a lot of the small dust particles out of the air. The car and surrounding areas don’t have that fine coating of dust in the mornings like I’ve grown accustomed too. There’s a two-stage filter arrangement. The outside filter is a 5 micron collector and the innside one is a 1 micron assembly.
Space in my garage is at a premium so I built this flip-top cart to hold my bench top planer and the combination belt and spindle sander. Actually, there’s a law that says you must have a flip top cart in your workspace if your shop is a garage. I rarely need to use these at the same time so I chose these two to utilize the same cart. The cart has 3 inch locking casters making the unit move around easily and can quickly move back out of the way when not in use.
Each unit is plugged into a multi-outlet power strip inside the cart top and one male plug routes out the side. The top comes apart so if I need to get to something inside it’s possible to do so by removing about 10 two-inch screws. Hopefully that will be far and few between.
This design was posted on Fishers Shop and I used his design. There are many examples of flip-carts out there and I like this one the best of those that I watched.
i will probably edge-band some the raw plywood edges and give everything a final sanding and several coats of lacquer or poly-urethane to protect the wood. It’s ready to use, let’s make something.
