Yo whats up everybody I was looking at the ryobi table saw at homedepot.com and I was thinking about is it really worth it to spend $115 on a bench top tablesaw or is it better to spend $100 on a circular saw. Now I dont have a working circular saw and I know that a table saw is more accurate then a circular saw. In this case its not I read some of the reviews on lumberjocks and on home depot.com on both the ridgid circular saw and the ryobi table saw and I really wasnt convinced that this ...
Just updated my 12 n 12 challange status with information on Marc Adams version of the Maloof side table. Check it out at Project Artistry.
I am trying to build a buffet table for my mom for Christmas- from scratch. I have drawn up 7 different plans. I cant make up my mind which one, so I went to my local hardware store to look at wood, hoping this would help, well the gentleman that was helping me – insulted me, he asked what kind of tools I had, I told him, the he said “well that’s your problem, why don’t you go back into the kitchen and let the man of the house do it! I looked at him and said “Not married, no boyfr...
In this video I talk about how to make repeatable cuts using a stop block and how the miter joints are the best jointey option for the project. I also cut all the 2×4s and start assembly. Now all I did to assembly it was just glueing the divider pieces and screwing them in
HELLO there, morning coffee drinkers.. here is the news from downunder.Today I took delivery of another 2 pallets of the European Wild Cherry.. had to find space to unload it all.Managed to unload one pallet before the rain came in… covered the other pallet with a tarpaulin., that took some time from my day. Then the sun came out.. figures hey. As you may or may not have read ….. I posted a tutorial on how to make a tumbling block board in endgrain. That took a little of my da...
Hi guys ,, I had a request to make a tutorial with regards the endgrain Tumbling Block Design.First off,.., You need to decide the size of the blocks…. for this example I used 1” stock… Or something similar.. actually just over .. once dressed. Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...
My panel is full, so I have to put in a subpanel to get any room for shop circuits. I picked up a 100A 2 pole for the main panel to feed a 100A Square-D main lug panel with 6 positions (12 circuits). This is where all those years working with dad as an electrician really pay off. I figure I’ll need: 1 – 220v 20A circuit to cover my saw and any reasonable upgrades.1 – 220v 20A circuit for future dust collection (starting off with Shopvac)2 or 3 120v 20A circuit for g...
So far, here’s the plan for “finishing” the walls. Subject to change as I see new and different cool stuff to buy. Exterior walls will be DryLok-ed, then Insulpink with 1×3 furring strips held by Tapcon screws right into the block. Sheathed with 7/16×4 x 8 OSB (at HD it’s only $1 more per sheet over sheetrock, and this will hold a screw anywhere, no hunting for studs). Inner walls will be OSB over 1×3 (no insul) One framed wall will be OSB ov...
I feel really strange writing this I really don’t like to publicize my personal problems but this one goes way beyond just myself.Recently about a month ago my dad passed away . My wife and I have been busy getting his things in order, (he liked collecting cars , boats Etc). We also have to help my mother get her life in order .On top of that This last Sunday morning I got word that my brother lost his life on Saturday (he left behind his wife and daughter she’s 20). I’m going t...
Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...
