Get Away ... in Your Workshop

Most woodworkers I talk with don't think their shops are just a place to work. They're much more than that: a hideaway, a haven and sometimes, a castle. I'm not saying woodworkers are a highly unsociable lot .... nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes a person just needs to get away. And the shop, with its familiar tools, allowable dust,

half-finished projects and very specific sense of place, allows us to "get away" right in the basement or garage of the rushed world we live in. And let me add; this is not a "guy thing." Women woodworkers profess the same sensibility about their shops as men.

If you're going to spend a lot of time in your shop, you might as well keep it humming. That's what this special issue will help you do. Workshop jigs and fixtures are all about organization and efficiency. You'll find your tools faster, have better surfaces to work on and, with the right jigs, make fewer mistakes.

Here then, are a few favorites from the back pages of Woodworker's Journal and Today's Woodworker magazines. First, have a look at Ralph Bagnall's Adjustable Box Joint Jig on page 16 or Chris Inman's Precision Crosscutting Jig on page 72. No table saw should be without these ringer projects. If casework is your forte, be sure to add Rob Johnstone's Shop-built Panel Saw (page 48) to your "must build" list.

We've got a couple great jigs to hop up your drill press, too. Dick Dorn's Adjustable V-block Jig (page 24) and Jeff Greef's Tilting Table for the Drill Press (page 36) should have you covered, whatever drilling task comes along. Planning to do some resawing? Build Dave Olson's Quick and Easy Band Saw Fence (page 34) first. And routing fluted columns will be a piece of cake with the Fluting Jig shown on page 54.

This issue is also loaded with great shop fixtures, including a G. I.-approved All-Purpose Shop Table (page 20), a thrifty but solid Budget Workbench (page 64) and what truly is the Ultimate Sharpening Station (page 26). Or build Rick White's heirloom-quality Craftsman's Toolbox on page 76, just like our forebears used to make.

To order any of the hard-to-find hardware for these great shop projects, please check out the box on the Pinup Shop Drawings on page 39.
