Cutting laminated corrugated cardboard - 4 replies
A friend is building a project from laminated sheets of corrugated cardboard, and made a couple of pieces too big… She’s asked for me to help in cutting them. Basically, I’m trimming a four layer thick round sandwich of cardboard down about an inch to match a circle of luan plywood… I’m thinking a jigsaw with a...

Pondering a kitchen table from cherry plywood. - 11 replies
My local Rockler has some 24×32 sheets of 3/4 cherry plywood on sale, and I’m pondering using them for building a dining room table.

Shop layout - 17 replies
There not being a forum for shops, this seems the closest place… To recap/summarize from my blog and shop tours: My shop is essentially an oversized one car garage (min tour here).

Jointer / planer questions. - 6 replies
1) What kind of paste wax do you recommend for the jointer? 2) What side of the rough stock do you start jointing with? Common sense suggests the widest, as that gives you the best contact with the fence for the next side. 3) If the piece being milled is stable enough (I.E. it won’t tip), could you just run the fourth side through t...

Seeking Tablesaw reviews - 7 replies
Yesterday I was at B&N and saw a woodworking magazine with a head-to-head comparison of a bunch of hybrid saws – but like a dunderhead I did not pick it up. Which means, of course, that when I stopped by today it was gone. I can’t recall which magazine it was, can any of my fellow LJ’s ID it?
