Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...
Hobby time has been short lately, but I’ve progressed… I’ve completed drilling, countersinking and taping, using the methodology of changing bits without moving the piece. With the pieces all marked and mounted at the drill press: I positioned at the general location using the laser: Refined the positioning with magnifying glasses and centering pin using the x-y vise: Added cutting oil and drilled the through holes for 11/64 inch (#8 screws) followed by counte...
Today I made the last of the thirty marks needed on the center beams. Objective 1: mark for joining the two angle irons together to form a T with a centered series of equally spaced 6-32×1/4” flat screws.Objective 2: mark for joining center T beam to wood cap. I’m very happy with my learnings and results, so thought I’d share. With advice from others, thanks theart, Gil, and the internet I put together this kit and procedure. 1. Calculate fastener interval as lengt...
First time blogging… But, the activity I’m on now seems like a good topic. I’m building two beds. I need to join angle irons to wood for bed rails and center beam re-enforcement. I need to join angle iron to angle iron to form a T beam. Now, I’ve drilled into metal more than a few times… Often I’m disappointed with the results. Knowing that the inside of the bed rails will not be on display, I decided to use it as a learning opportunity and for sk...

Hi everyone, I have several 7/8 – 1 1/4 shank titanium coated drill bits. The shortest one is 10in, the longest one is 24in. They are huge and I have nothing that can possibly handle them. I can’t find anything online on what they could possibly be used for though. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction, please…? Jim

Finished my wife’s workbench. Check it out and let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions on how I could have done it differently.
Hi! Took a break from the kids table and chairs as suggested by some great people. On to a donation item for my sled hockey team. Hopefully we can do a raffle or something with it. :) The one thing I really struggled with is the 6 inch hole. I cut it out with a jigsaw and then sanded to the line. I wanted to go over it with a roundover bit… when I did it made it lopsided and bad! I’m not sure how I’m gonna fix that, lol. The good thing is, I have a wrap to put on it!! ...
Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...
