Stumpy wanted a new place to do what he does, and this is the result: A mobile workstation with more features than you’ve ever seen in one place. It has five roomy drawers, a clamp rack, built in nail and screw bins, an innovative power tool storage area, organizer bins for parts and accessories, a special top with built in T-Tracks, even a pull out sharpening station! It’s easy to see why he calls it “ultimate”!

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.
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 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!
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!
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.
This is my version of an idea first presented in Fine Woodworking Magazine (Issue #178) by Richard Beebe. This taper jig works like a sled, securely holding your workpiece and keeping your hands safe throughout the cut, even for narrow tapers, such as chair legs. My version is a little different that his. It adjusts equally from both ends of the fence, and will cut wide panels as well as narrow stock.
This machine was born out of frustration! Stumpy had a cheap hand-held biscuit joiner that he picked up on a whim at Harbor Freight. The problem with cheap units like that is the difficulty that comes with making an accurately placed slot without the tool rocking out of position during the cut! So, like any good woodworker, Stumpy set out to find a solution. And the result is a bench top unit that can make a cheap tool into something easier to use than even the expensive hand-held versions. The Bench-top Biscuit Joiner is fast and accurate, inexpensive to build, and has dozens of uses. It's great for edge gluing boards, strengthening any butt joint, cutting slots for raised panels and picture frames... you name it!
It may look like a regular router table, but it has a feature that very few have! The front of the table surface slides in a precision track, and that makes all the difference. It's like having a built in coping sled for safely and accurately routing small parts or routing the end of narrow stock. You clamp your work piece right down to the table, then slide the carriage past the bit. It adds a level of safety and precision that no standard router table can match, and the uses are endless. Add to that the six drawers for bit and accessory storage and you have a router table that will do more things and last longer than any you've ever owned!
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.
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.
