Why would I ever need a thin rip jig? - 15 replies

I see homemade ones and just watched a video from rockler. They say that it keept them strait? I would just hold the piece against the fence and get the same results or use a feather board. They also said it improves safety and keeps your hands farther from the blade. They showed a demo without the jig where the guy did some very strange maneuve...

Just a cutting board sanding tip - 2 replies

I hate sanding as much as most of you. I never could understand why some people spent so much time sanding. I had been making a good amount of cutting boards and sanding them with the ROS with 80 120 and 220. Then, while cleaning up the shop, I found a piece of 300 grit and 400 grit paper. I had never bought grit this high so i had no idea where...

How much do you sell your cutting boards for? - 45 replies

Hey all, I have been making lots of really nice cutting boards recently. A guy in my town showed some interest in selling them at his store. I have no idea how to price them.

What oil do you use for your cutting boards? - 14 replies

Hey all. So after making a few cutting boards, I found out here that I need to do many more coats of oil than I have been doing and let it sit for a good while. I’ve been doing 2-3 coats but wiping off the excess oil (which I now realize is wrong). My plan is to take a large plastic container like one of those ziplock ones for storing food...

A great $30 upgrade for our bag dust collectors! - 12 replies

So I was looking at jet’s cheesy videos about the vortex cone technology and it gave me a great idea. I have a HF dust collector and I saw in the videos that the vortex cone is pretty much the same DC so why cant I just add it to my dust collector. The technology looks pretty promising so I just put in my order for the cone and the mountin...

Problem with a bosch 1590 jig saw - 2 replies

So I was given this jig saw for free because it was only half working. When it is on the highest speed setting, you pull the trigger and it starts out at full speed and then about 5 seconds later it dives down to about power level 1. If I keep it on the first power level the speed stays consistant. It seemed to me like something was loose so I t...

Help me decide on a finish for my first table! - 1 reply

So I have taken on the project of building a coffee table for my mom. (see pics below) She wanted a nice dark wood, so I picked up some 4/4 walnut for the top. I will be loosely connecting the boards together (she wants a rustic look). So today I laid the boards across the base in the living room, and it turns out that she likes the color as it ...

Changing bits above table with bosch 1617 - 2 replies

So when I got this router, my understanding was that with the original base, I would be able to make above table bit changes. For some reason, its not raising high enough. Any ideas? Also, my initial thinking for buying this router for my router table was that I wouldn’t need to reach under to change the height. So far it appears that to a...
