Tablesaw or circular saw

08-18-2009 10:03 PM by kosta | 14 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I was looking at the ryobi table saw at 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 on both the ridgid circular saw and the ryobi table saw and I really wasnt convinced that this ...

I need help

08-13-2009 08:15 PM by Martina | 54 comments »

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

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...

Building the Shop #3: Electric

08-12-2009 04:40 AM by unklegwar | 17 comments »

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...

Building the Shop #2: Walls

08-12-2009 04:30 AM by unklegwar | 5 comments »

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...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

08-11-2009 01:55 PM by Andy | 28 comments »

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...
