Anyone have any info on the HF 6” Jointer? there is a used one for sale locally for 100 bucks and just don’t know enough about them – this would be my first jointer. I know there are many good reviews about the HF dust collectors, but this may be a different story all together. Any help is appreciated!Tom
My mom and dad wanted to get our daughter Beatrice a kitchen set, and I quickly suggested that we build one instead. Stephanie was also excited at the possibility of displaying it and taking orders at the craft fair coming up in October. So we began by looking up wood toy kitchens on google and chose the features and style that we liked. We shopped at Lowes for all the pine lumber. I would have liked to have used grooves and dado’s for joinery, but in the spirit of keepin...
This past weekend my wife was nice enough to forgo her own hobby to watch our daughter and I got about 8 hours in the garage to work. I’m desperate to get as much done on my jointer as possible because as you can see, it is completely stealing my wife’s parking spot (but it is shinier than the car!). I’m going to try and explain the processes I went through while providing before and after. Sorry the shots aren’t from a consistent angle. I didn’t really...

The strength that holds the sides together will be from the rails, the top and bottom shelf which will be 3/8” X 1 1/4” tenons pined from the legs.
I got this tool at a GREAT price on craigslist about a year ago. I actually remember the day. I was listening to the Hokie game on the radio on the way back from my purchase and I literally RAN into the house to see my Hokies complete one of the greatest comeback drives I’ve witnessed in my 15 years of watching Hokie football. Tyrod Taylor had lofted an 80 yard pass to Danny Coale against Nebraska and was about to complete the comback with an amazing scramble and touchdown pass just ...
Wow, so much can change in just 24 hours. (yeah, i’m going to pretend I wrote this last night hehehe) So, yesterday, I was slaving over a hot sheet of sand paper trying to lap the plastic parts of the fence on my newly gifted router table, in hopes of being able to use it as a mini jointer to make at least some little flat boards… Well, today, I spent a little time looking at Craig’s list for Charlotte NC, and found an add for “Millwork tool” including a ...
In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
