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!

Compact Drill Press Table

Stumpy's amazing x-y sliding drill press table is a little big for some drill presses, so he got to work on a more compact solution- smaller, easier to build, but still loaded with features, like replaceable inserts, slide out trays for drill bit storage, a unique fence based dust collection system, and a t-style fence locking mechanism.

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!

Homemade Router Lift

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.

Drum Sander (2-Stage)

This drum sander design is unlike anything you've ever seen before! It is a "dual stage" machine, meaning both the top and the bottom of the sanding drum may be used. This enables you to sand any flat work piece to thickness by feeding it through the machine via a hand-cranked feed belt, OR you can pass your work pieces over the top of the machine for fast sanding of flat surfaces and even edges! There isn't another drum sander with this capability ANYWHERE! It's also designed to use inexpensive, easy to find 6" sanding belts, and rather than peeling off the paper to change grits, you swap out the whole drum via a quick-release system!

24″ Band Saw

This band saw is BIG on everything except size. It features a full 24" of throat capacity, yet it's small enough to fit on a bench. It's loaded with features that even the commercially made saws lack, like a built in sliding crosscut table, ball bearing blade guides, and a unique dust collection manifold. You can use common 104"-105" blades and the best part is, it's made almost entirely from wood!

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!

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)

2×6 Roubo Workbench

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.

Domino Style Mortiser

This is a tool Stumpy has wanted for a long time, but just couldn't justify the $1,000 price tag for the commercial version! It's a hand held mortising machine designed for loose tenon joinery- which is a lot like traditional mortise and tenon joinery- but WAY faster and easier! Inspired by the Festool Domino, this homemade version is a lot easier to make than you'd think, and it has more uses than you'd imagine!
