Router table

router fence tableA goo way to work accurately with a router is to have it fixed on a table. There are many systems available and, after several research on the web, I opted for the Incra Tool solution (by the way, I'm not paid by Incra to do advertising). I bought the following:

Automation of a Sherline lathe with Mach3

I have choosen Mach3 to digitalize my Sherline lathe as I did good experiences with this software on my milling machine. I would have preferred LinuxCNC, but, unfortunately, this software does not allow to calibrate a tool in the middle on a machining program (at leasat with the version I used). As I do not have tool changer, I had to create several gcodes files for each tools.

Planing abutment


It is sometime necessary to plan the abutment of a piece of wood in wood working. This is not easy to do without suitable tool. I built this planning abutment with scrap wood I have in my workshop.

The critical part when building this tool is to make sure there is a right angle where indicated by the red arrow.

For the rest, it is easy to build and the drawing included in that project are self explanatory.

Support for Sherline mill holder

I do have several Sherline mill holder, but the drawer in which I put them is no high enougth to store them vertically. The only possibility I have is to store them horizontally: however, when I open or close the drawer, they move and clash, resulting in mill brake.

Shelf for spices

This wood working project is a small shelf for spices my wife asked me to build. It is not a difficult project, but requires a little patience and attention to details.

Small Plastic Box

This is a small plastic box made with a 3D printer for my workshop. I did it for organizing my small screws, nuts, whashers, etc.

You will find below the stl file ready to be printed.

Paper box in wood

I made this wood box to test my new Leigh D4R Pro. As I had several paper around my desk, an A4 paper box to collect them and put them in one place was a good start.

It is an easy project that can be made with waste wood you certainly have in your shop.

The box is symmetric: the sides can be cut together two by two.

T-Slot M5

A T-Slot is an element that allow fixing part to be machined on a mill or a lathe. It is very easy to build and is a perfect project for a beginner.
