As a beginning woodworker without a large shop full of tools, I’m was at first skeptical about my ability to get by and produce interesting things without tools like a table saw or band saw. One of the things that’s really helped me get by is the cutting guide. I built a massive 8’ long cutting guide for my Ryobi circular saw, which makes it about 1000 times easier to chop up plywood without being dependent on the table saw I don’t have. I decided this evening tha...
This weekend’s goal is getting the cabinet beside the stove to at least have a usable counter-top. We picked up a beaten up 10’x2’ glued up piece of maple countertop off of Craigslist for $50, and that’s becoming the surface for beside the stoive, and the narrow counter for under the window, with a backsplash cut from the scraps. Today I took a deep breath and cut the first pieces. As I said, the counter-top was pretty beat up with a few gaps, so as I sanded...
I debated whether I should put this entry here or over at HomeRefurbers, but that site really hasn’t taken off yet, and the process of coming up with our kitchen cabinets is feeling a whole lot more like woodworking than it is home improvement.

As always since i am only using a digital camera to film the sound is a little bad. so try to bear with me it helps to turn up the sound and sit a little bit away from the computer. this improves the sound a little bit. ...
Hello folks! Hope all have had a wonderful Christmas. Mine has been hectic but overall a great year. I’ll keep it brief as it is late… I received two notable woodworking gifts this year. The first is a Bosch CS20 Circular saw. A circular saw has been on my list as a future purchase and I had no clue I would be getting one.
