This is my second project progress blog. I am a hobbyist who likes to try to build things beyond my skill set. I started this desk in the spring, then got waylaid by the live edge table I needed to finish. Today I started again. I am making a Curved-Front Desk from the Fine Woodworking plan. The first step is to do the legs. I got ahead of myself in the spring and did the shaping of the legs before I did the mortises. By the end of the week, I will have 8-10 double-curved cherry leg...

I’ll walk you through the steps to make a wooden business card holder like this one. Choose what ever wood you’d like and follow along. A few passes through the table saw and a quick spin on the lathe is all it takes. I hope you enjoy the business card tutorial.

I have been storing this Craftsman table saw for about 12 years with the intention to fix it up and use it. Now that I have a place to actually set it up and use it I am off to the races.I will post photos but as of this morning I haven’t taken any yet. The Saw model# is 113.298470. Steel wool, elbow grease and some PB Blaster cleaned the table top up fine, a spot weld was broken on the rear support below the motor bracket, got that welded yesterday. Now my issue is building a slick rol...
I bought some small woodworking toys for my son one Christmas and when we were putting things together he made a comment that he would like his own workbench someday. This got the ol hamster whel a turning and I did some research into so ideas i could use to make him one. SOme blood sweat and one broken toe later He got one made just for him. He is also a huge Baltimore Orioles Fan as u can tell.
I was perusing Lumberjocks when I logged in and noticed it had been over 400 days since I posted anything. So what have I been up to you ask? Work, school, work, family, homework and tests… I graduated high school in 1995 (some will laugh others will be like hey youngster!) and one thing I have determined is I hated algebra then and I sure in the hell hate it now… Outside of that I have muddled in woodworking here and there and nothing real serious. That was until Festool had...
I know that many people have modified the HF-DC but I just wanted to put my spin out there. I have been doing a lot of research on the many different styles of updates/modifications that have been done and holy cow there are a lot. But, most of them rely on the Thien principle that seems to be pretty simple. On the Thien blog there is a guy that tests and records many different modifications with different setups. I am going to set-out to make my entire system buying the least amount as p...
