A mini cyclone designed to keep your filter clean and your vacuum working hard! There are commercial versions on the market, but ours is easy and inexpensive to make, and will mount directly on your vacuum so you don’t have to pull a separate bucket around. Vacuum surgery is optional, and we walk you through the whole thing! This project was featured on episodes 51 & 52 of “The Stumpy Nubs Workshop”.

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!
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)
Andre Roubo was among the oldest of the old-timey woodworkers, and the unique drawings found in his eighteenth century book have inspired woodworkers for over 200 years. Stumpy has designed a version of this bench which is by far the easiest, least expensive version to make. You can build one without difficult joinery, and without compromises in strength and features, all from cheap construction lumber! It's big, beefy and full of all the features a hand tool woodworker, or even a power tool woodworker, would appreciate.
This lift features an improved tracking mechanism, adjustments are made from above the table using a 1 1/8" socket or wrench, it attaches to a homemade router plate, and will go into almost any router table that has a removable plate. Or you can use it by itself as a stand-alone mini router table! The plans are designed for a standard 3 1/2 - 3 3/4" round, removable router motor.
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!
