I've been lurking for quite a while and finally decided to join. Not sure why I waited so long. I have been woodworking since 2003 and I like to make a variety of things. I have also been active duty Navy since 2003. I look forward to actually being a part of this great community!

We’ve got the box out of the clamps and smoothed out. Time to cut the splines. I have a spline cutting jig I made for my table saw. It has a saddle that rides along the fence similar to the 22.5 cutting jig. I do the top corners first ...
We finished the 22.5 degree cuts last time. This time, we tackled the 45s and got the case glued up. Cutting the 45s on my crosscut sled. A little blue painter’s tape helps support the fibers of the maple. I’ve never used it befo...
