Bench Grinder Tool Rest

‹Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

This little tool rest was one of our first projects, way back in the old Blue Collar Woodworking show days. Since then it has become one of our most popular, with so many requests for plans that we decided to give in and make some! It is fully adjustable and designed to be used with the Veritas grinding jig- (though it can also be used on its own). There’s a slot in the top platform that allows you to move the jig side-to-side as you grind, and the whole platform also advances forward and back, a handy feature that no other tool rest I have seen has!

  • Deluxe PDF Plans (Dimensions, cut list, drawings, build photos and step by step instructions)
  • Dimensions: Inches
  • Tools required: Table saw, pneumatic nailer, drill, router

Our deluxe project plans are more than just a set of dimensions. They include a comprehensive set of step-by-step instructions with dozens of photos and illustrations to walk you thorough the build.

Below are some examples of what our deluxe project plans look like. This plan will be similar.

Deluxe Router Table Fence

This amazingly accurate and versatile router table fence is patterned after the very expensive Incra LS system. It features a set of interlocking teeth creating positive stops every 1/16". You can't miss your mark even by the tiniest fraction of in inch! And when combined with Stumpy's "sliding router table" you can create precise joinery! It also works on any router table and is the most accurate homemade router fence out there.

Dovetail Machine

I designed a dovetail machine that can be made from wood, and has more features than most of the top of the line commercial versions. This machine is designed to be used with your router to make fast, even, beautiful through dovetail joints that look like you made them by hand. It is micro-adjustable so you can set how tight you want the joint to be, and it allows you to easily change the spacing and size of the tails and pins. It will also make sliding dovetail joints and router dadoes!

Saw Bench

Every workshop should have at least one saw bench. Not only is this an indispensable tool for sawing, it’s also a comfortable and portable workspace for chopping, boring and all sorts of other tasks. This version of the classic saw bench includes some extra features. For one thing, there’s a split that runs down the center to support both sides of the board while you rip down its length. There are holes for holdfasts to secure your work while you drill or chop sitting down. And it’s large enough to use as a step stool or an extra seat while shooting the breeze. But the best part is it can be built with some old construction lumber!

Router Table Multi-Sled

What started out as a way to safely hold small parts while working at the router table, became a multi-functional sled that will accomplish several tasks safely and accurately. It's a small parts holder: it's a coping sled for routing on the ends of narrow work pieces (rail and stile construction, tenons, half laps, etc.); and it's a circle cutting jig capable of diameters up to 10-inches.

This sled is surprisingly easy to build, and the plans give you all the information you need, including step-by-step instructions complete with photos. Enjoy!

Horizontal Router

This horizontal router has a few unique twists that make all the difference, like a tilting table, a micro adjustable router lift, a sliding table and much more. The machine is great for making raised panel doors, cutting miters and bevels, making splined miter joints for boxes, locking miter joints, half lap joints, rabbets, tenons... the list goes on and on. Plus it has excellent dust collection, and the tilting table makes it possible to cut unique, one of a kind profiles with ordinary router bits!

Simple Router Mortising Jig

This jig is simple and inexpensive to make, but well thought out to provide a surprising level of functionality. It may be used with a plunge router and an edge guide to create accurate, repeatable mortises. You can cut tricky ones too, such as double mortises, parallel mortises and even mortises in round stock.

Table Saw Fence

This fence is truly unique with an innovative locking system that self squares to the blade, a micro adjuster for fine tuning your cuts, and an anti-kick-back European style with detachable extensions. Even the rails are made from wood! It's designed to fit any saw from small, bench top units to large cabinet saws, with or without side tables. There's even a built in pencil & accessory holder! (This project can be used on its own, but it is also designed to fit our deluxe table saw workstation)

Dovetail Workstation

Traditional workbenches are great! The problem is that planning and project assembly tasks are best done at a low bench, but cutting joinery such as dovetails is more comfortable at a higher bench. Most shops don’t have multiple benches for multiple uses, so we bend down for our dovetailing. This workstation seeks to solve that problem! When placed on a standard bench top it raises your work up so you can stand erect and work more comfortably. It includes work-holding clamps so it may be used on any work-surface, no vice required. And other clever features, such as a drawer to hold all your dovetailing tools and a replaceable chopping surface, make it very versatile.

Plywood-Cutting Storage Cart

If you use a lot of plywood or if you just like to keep a few sheets on hand, this is the project for you! It's a storage cart that organizes both full and partial sheets. But it also includes a clever feature that holds large panels upright so you may break them down easily  with a circular saw and an edge guide. No more carrying and flipping big, heavy sheets around the shop. Do it all right on the storage cart! The whole thing is mobile so you can roll it around and tuck it in a corner. And it's built from inexpensive construction lumber.
