Trestle table design help - 3 replies

I’ve been messing around in Sketchup trying to draw a trestle table and I’m having trouble getting the proportions right. The feet either look huge or way too small to go with the uprights or worse, keep the table from tipping over. I’ve seen some really nice pics of trestles built by Jocks in the projects section, can somebo...

Ridgid HD Jointer - 10 replies

I’m slowly outfitting a shop and have come to the jointer. I’ve been seeing the Ridgid one in HD for years and finally decided to go pick one up this weekend only to find they’ve been discontinued for quite some time.. This surprised me because I know I saw one in there just a few months ago and it was not clearance priced. ...

Powermatic 63 Artisan tune up? - 12 replies

I recently found myself in need of a table saw so I got this old PM 63 off craigslist (the price was right). Its in pretty good shape and everything seems parallel enough for the cuts I’m making but I have not measured anything. My question is how much precision can I expect out of this old saw, and can anybody tell me where to find a ho...

This should be on homerefurbers.... - 7 replies

but this site seems to get a lot more traffic. Forgive me. I’m looking at putting some 3/4” nail down hardwood over an OSB subfloor. The OSB has quite a bit of tear out from the removal of an old glue down flooring. I’m wondering if anybody has tried leveling compound under a nail down floor. Some have told me the staple...

oscillating multi tool to clean grout? - 7 replies

So this weekend my wife enlisted me to help clean the house. I was assigned the bathroom. After scrubbing away forever with a plastic pad, Comet and bleach I found myself thinking ‘There has got to be an easier softer way’. What about a Brillo type pad on my Porter Cable multi tool? Do you guys think this would work? I’d h...

Table Top Design Question - 1 reply

I’ve been poking through the projects showing my wife different table designs to get an idea as to her taste -all she can tell me is she likes deco – but that is beside the point. I have noticed several tables that have mitered corner banding around a center SOLID panel. It was my understanding that this was a design no-no as the ...

Miter + station? - 7 replies

My shop is slowly coming together in the garage – but I need to be able to fit at least my wife’s car in there when its not in shop mode. I have a big 12” miter say and I’ll be grabbing a planer soon (portable 12-13” like the DW735 or something similar). I wanted to build a bank of cabinets along one of the walls ...

Anybody a framing capenter? - 27 replies

I didn’t know where to post this, or even if its appropriate for this site, but the members here seem much less likely to flame me for posting a DIY question in a ‘pro’ forum, which is all I can seem to find. Mods delete away if I’m way off topic. I have this cat – it had a small medical problem (corrected) that...

Where do you shop - Atlanta? - 5 replies

Greetings all, brand new to this and doing it as a hobby. I’ve been moving from state to state for years (and as a result, apartment to apartment) and have finally settled in Atlanta where I own a house with space for a shop. Hopefully my years of ‘if only I had room for a shop’ research will give me a small jump on getting s...
