Table/cabinet top support system - 8 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...

I perform a “search”, getting a list of hits spanning a number of pages. I open one of the list items on page one. When I finish, I go back to the list by clicking on the BACK button in the upp...

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...
