Table/cabinet top support system - 5 replies
I’m going to build a cabinet that serves a dual purpose. It will be the place for the microwave most of the time but will also be used as a serving table since counter space is at a premium. The cabinet will be mobile to serve it’s second use. My intent is to have two tops to accommodate the need for the additional counter space. Th...

Cabinet door stops - 6 replies
I’m working on my first display cabinet. It is a two door unit. The write-up with the plan refers to two types of door stops. One is a ball catch and the other is a magnetic catch. I have looked at both. I would like to get the opinion of some of you as to which one is preferable, if in fact one is. It would seem to me the installatio...

Which wood for fireplace surround - 9 replies
I want to build a surround to overlay our current red brick fireplace. We found a design we like. Selecting a material is proving difficult. Most of my research recommends using MDF, primarily for its cost and simplicity to finish. Our surround will be painted, not stained. It seems to me I would not be able to reproduce the design we have ...

Communal Woodworking Shop - 14 replies
I’m not sure I’m in the proper place for this question. Please feel free to move the topic if it isn’t. I have come to the conclusion my garage is not going to become my workshop. There are a few reasons for that. First and foremost it has become a clutter. It also wouldn’t fit the machines I’m beginning to real...

Craftsman 10" table saw - 11 replies
I have a very old saw, model 133.29581C. Sears doesn’t have a listing for it and could not provide a manual.I’m having trouble with fence alignment and retention. I should probably buy another fence system but don’t want to spend the money before I find out if the saw is of any use. The fence does not have a lock down type hand...
