Working in a small shop with little to no wall space can be a challenge. This project solves that challenge by mounting a Dust Right Wall-Mount Dust Collector 1250cfm on a stand with casters. This is typically used as a stationary dust collector, but this cart makes it mobile. This cart can be built with one sheet of plywood and a few 2x4’s in just a few hours!

I like working and eating while sitting on my sofa, but I don’t have a stable table surface that slide up close for my computer or food. So, making a solid and stable sofa table (you could also call it a TV tray) has been on my project list for a long time. This table features two support legs on opposite side from the sofa, so that the bottom supports can slide under a sofa or chair and the tabletop can slide over the cushions. I used Rockler Heavy-Duty Cross Dowels and Bolts to make a rock solid connection between the table legs and stretchers. These fasteners are easy to install with the Rockler Heavy-Duty Cross Dowel Drilling Jig.

Rockler has designed several woodworking jigs that make it safe and easy to complete common woodworking actions, such as making miter cuts, making cross cuts, or milling joinery. But sometimes you need to make a special jig for a specific woodworking task. Rockler Universal T-track and accessories can help make these jigs adjustable and more versatile. The Universal T-track features a unique "stacked" T-slot that accepts both 5/16" T-bolts and 1/4" T-bolts, as well as 1/4" Hex-bolts. The T-tracks are available in 2 ft, 3 ft, or 4 ft lengths. The free jig plans featured in this post are examples of the many ways you can incorporate t-track in your jigs. You may find these jigs useful for your projects or they may be the inspiration for your unique jig design.
