Has anyone checked this site out. Great information site. Check the link for free software for woodworkers. I have a few on my computer now. I think this guy is either a LJ’s member or he should be.http://users.goldengate.net/~kbrady/woodlinks.htmlGod bless
One of the good things about being in the Air Force is that, if you aren’t deployed, most of us can expect to get a good amount of time off around the holidays. I’m expecting a little over a week off between Christmas and New Years, so I though I’d better start another project to keep me busy and out of trouble. While working on my Xmas projects I needed a nail punch. I spent 3 hours looking around my garage before I finally found it conveniently placed underneath one o...
Here are the pieces i milled up for the top. I tried to go light on the jointer/planar because i need the top to be as thick as possible. I think I ended up with all pieces being 7/8”.
Here’s all the stock milled s4s, marked, and semi-stickered ready for ripping and cutting to length. I read somewhere to let milled wood rest couple days before working it. Stickered and weighted.
I marked layout lines for the dadoes. The plans suggested cutting the dadoes for the sides and middle sections BEFORE ripping the pieces apart… this made sense in theory but was a chore to do because I had to offset the router from the marked line using a straight edge. So I measured out 2” from the line and made the first cut, then moved the fence 1/4” inward to make the final dado cut. I think I’ll invest some thinking into making a dado jig and using a pattern bi...
So,I made the big mistake of cutting my fingers on my table saw. Won’t go into details, except to say that I made most mistakes you can make in doing so (tired, dark area, saw blade up, etc.). I’ve been an avid woodworker for about a year now, with the idea of making custom furniture. With that being said, I’m taking this “opportunity” to organize my shop appropriately, and to a large degree with safety in mind. I’ve roughed out my space with SketchUp, ...
My wife says I get a tablesaw for Christmas. I’ve had my eye on the delta model at Lowe’s and I have not found any tool reviews to gather an opinion for any other saw in this price range. Anybody have anything to say about this saw or advice on another in the $500-$600 range?

It’s hard visuallizing which grain pattern will look good for which part of the project. I hope this is one of those things that will become easier with experience.
