A few months ago I bought a hybrid saw so I could remove the legs to mount it on my mobile workbench. I built a box to support the saw and house a chute to channel the dust to the exhaust port. My original intention was to slope the front panel all the way back to the outlet so the chute that came with the saw wouldn’t work. During construction, I ended up with a square chute to get steeper angles and extended the suction pipe into it. I realized later that I could have saved some effor...

This blog post will discuss how my new table saw (Powermatic PM2000) came packaged from the factory and how it was delivered . I think someone that plans on buying this saw might find this posting very informal and what they will expect when taking delivery. I ordered my new saw through ACME tools and my actual sales guy ended up personally delivering the saw right to my house. He transported the saw in a 1ton pickup with a liftgate. It was nice, he backed the truck right up to my garage t...

So after purchasing my first table saw about 3 1/2 years ago (old 2hp contractor grade craftsmen) I finally purchased a table saw that I could take my woodworking skills to the next level. 3 1/2 years ago I purchased my first home with attached 2 car garage. That allowed me to finally have some room to complete some woodworking. So I purchased a old craftsmen table saw off CL for around $100. This would allow me to complete my first woodworking project for the house and that project was to co...
When it came to making wooden wedges, my efforts were always hit and miss, however because hopefully, in the New Year sometime, we will finally be in the position to buy our own place, and one that needs a bit of work, I thought I had better start getting prepared. One of the things I will need, will be shims for putting in door frames, I have to be honest when it comes to finding tools or accessories you need, here in Colombia, it is very hit and miss. The reason I keep being given is,...
The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...
This is a vintage Rockwell Delta Table Saw Jointer Combo, well, at least it was… the original jointer was sold and the owner kept the Magna jointer. So I re-assembled them anyway into the original configuration. Table Saw Jointer Here are the after pictures Table Saw Jointer Combo Once...
So I’ve been looking for a project that I could use as a gift for my Granddaughter (almost 2) and this month’s Wood Magazine had it right there between their pages. A Doll Baby bed project seems exactly what I was looking for and would fit in with time that I have available.It also doesn’t hurt that I had almost all of the materials sitting in my cut off bin! So, I am now about 50% complete with this project and due to a couple of the parts that need to be made, I d...
