Scarfing trim joint - 5 replies

Hi, I have several pieces of trim to put up in a 14’ x 14’ foot dining room and all I have is rough 8’ red oak. I did a smaller room and tried butt joints (pretty bad) and a scarf joint (meh).

Jointing long pieces question - 15 replies

I have a jet 12 inch jointer/planer (jjp-12hh) the tables are 55 inches long. I’m making door trim from rough cut red oak and I find that some pieces are slightly concave, so when edge planing I have some contact at the end then nothing for 5 or so feet then some contact at the other end. I feel like a chump passing the full length of the ...

Door trim question - 8 replies

Hey, I’m trying to trim out a bathroom door at the end of a hall. When I started testing pieces it became obvious that someone had done some work to hide an error. The door is almost 5/8 taller on one side than the other. That seems to have been done to compensate for the door frame being out maybe an inch. If I try to have a consist...

Anyone else watching Ellen's Design Challenge? - 2 replies

Some really nice stuff this season. Mostly woodworking, one lady seems to be a pretty good at welding her designs. They had an impressive kickback a couple episodes back, left a dent in another table saw right beside one of the carpenters!

Horrible treatment of Confederate flag in SC! - 17 replies

I watched a video of the flag being removed, there were people chanting and screaming as one would expect, but what came next really shocked me! http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2015/07/10/watch-live-as-the-confederate-flag-comes-down-in-south-carolina/ They rolled it up like it deserved some respect, just shocking!

Plane gift from brother-in-law - 7 replies

Went up to Ont. for a wedding and while there my brother-in-law gave me these 2 planes. One is a Record no 4 with a corrugated sole and a Winchester block plane. I have never heard of Winchester before. They were his fathers and have been sitting for decades. I have some old wooden planes that I have worked on but since these were his ...

Multiple 4 inch lines to second stage dust collector - 2 replies

I have a Delta 50-760 hooked up to a 50 gallon barrel as a second stage filter/collection unit and it works pretty well, emptied the bag once in 2 1/2 years, the barrel around 8 times. My wife can fill the barrel in about 3 months from her lathe. We have had this set-up for a while, but really only one of us can use it at a time. When I test ...

SawStop Contractor saw assembly is a joy! - 12 replies

You get what you pay for! I’m not not finished yet, but the stand, mobile base, motor, & saw itself went together very well. The hardware packs have numbers and colours on both sides that correspond with the large assembly poster. I Really can’t imagine it being any easier to assemble. NO missing parts, NO problems with anythi...
