Whats the rage all about?
I have been given a chance to test out and play with the Rage3 10″ sliding miter saw. Evolution is working hard to get establish in the US and has asked me to check out and review the Rage3 saw. I have created a video for your viewing and here are some after thoughts to follow up with the video.
Drill Bit Storage Cabinet
I needed to get all my drill bits in one place. This cabinet is going to fit under the drill press and store all the drill bit in my shop. Including the Kiss Drill Bit System from FastCap. This can also be used for a bench top drill press stand. Add some wheels maybe go a bit higher with the cabinet this could be a good solution for those bench top drill presses.
Hickory box with Gorilla glue finish
I set out to accomplish two things with this build. One I wanted to try this new finish method I learned from “Ask This Old House” The showed a method of using Gorilla Glue for a finish and it turn out awesome. It looked easy enough so I wanted to do it. Second, I never build a box using grain matching techniques before. I wanted the grain to wrap around the box, also book match the lid panel. That was the whole plan behind this build.
A while back I started a dividing wall in the shop. This dividing wall had many different ideas for. I was working on plans for a panel saw at one point and a panel clamping system at another point. I have decided to put my woodworking clamps up instead. Here’s how I did it. I have plans available for this clamp rack in my shop.
Did you know I have started making plan? Although this is a new process for me I do offer several set of plans for some of my recent builds. I will be adding more and more plans to my inventory over the next several months. Most of the time I’ll be doing plan for the project I do a video on. From time to time I will be doing them on past projects that I’ve done to build up inventory and to catch my self up to date. Leave me a comment if there is a pass video you would like a set up plans for. Check back regularly for updates. Continue reading
Now that the miter station is pretty much done. I have room and a need for an assembly table. This is one of those projects that has been way over due. I have use the out feed table as an assembly table for years. This works, but you end up having to move a lot of stuff to make the next cut. A dedicated assembly table is the answer. Plans are available for this build.
I have bee really busy getting the miter saw station done. Over the last few weeks I have been spending my free time in the shop working on it. Well good new I just wrapped up the last little bit tonight. and work on the video edit for video 3. Video 2 is about to release and sense you follow me here I’ll share the unlisted link with you. Let take a look at some pictures.
