Hello there, I have a porter cable 10” table saw (PCB220TS) and was wondering if anybody had any success upgrading to a better fence for it? I am also looking to build a mobile cabinet for it as well if that opens up more opportunities for a better fence system.
As you all know, working in the shop is a relaxing and rewarding way to spend some free time; either repairing or creating. While working it’s nice to have either news or music playing. The shop already has four speakers and an amplifier (read about the Lepai amp) in place. The music source has been either an old car stereo or more recently a MP3 player, each have pros and cons. Ideally the right solution would be touchscreen (no room for a mouse and keyboard), have internet access a...
The non-profit I started is getting ready to build our 2nd project. The concept behind Artisan Care is to create a chance for woodworkers of all levels to come together to learn and make something greater together than they could on their own, then give it away. Our first project went really well and now we are moving toward build number 2! This table will be delivered to a elderly couple raising their granddaughters in Fairview, TN. Their house was recently fully renovated and is n...
Hello Everyone,We finally started to build our much needed hanging tool cabinet. This one is going to be big. It measures in at 4 ft. x 4 ft. and around 20” deep. This build should be a lot of fun. Here is a link to part 1 of the video series. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5xU57c6BDw

Stumbled across this interesting and informative little wooden mechanical marvel today and thought it would make a nice handwork practice piece for the coming Winter. Nights are long and Winter longer here in Scandinavia. The project is sourced from https://woodgears.ca/combolock/index.html and plans are available for purchse there. A reader made a wooden ‘safe’ to go along with the lock: https://woodgears.ca/combolock/ramsay.html View on YouTube
This is where I will collect the projects i find that interest me. I may or may not get to actually making them, but since I am starting from the beginning, I hope that, over time, this will grow into an interesting, educational, and useful collection of projects for the aspiring woodworker.
This is my first try at this blog thing so any advice is welcome. I’m sorry for the lack of pics but I thought of posting this after I cut the file. Anyway, I needed a wide chisel and I had a file that was oversized so I chopped it up and started grinding away…. This is the part that I will use on this project. After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...
Metrication, or metrification, if you will, is now in use all over the world with only three holdouts. They are Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) and Liberia and the United States.As far back as the 1800s metric standards were considered as the basis for a worldwide standard.SI as it is known (short for Le Système International d’Unités) is actually being practiced by many manufacturers and service companies in the US. and metric measures are now recognized in the common market place. A...
