I just changed directions against the grain!Doesn’t matter...

Cheap and no excuses here: These projects are designed to be able to go from start to finish in one to two days, simple weekend projects that can be made from left over or scrap woods. Excluding finish I am using...

I recently discovered on YouTube these bits that are called birds mouth router bits. They make 6,8,12 sided boxes by cutting a notch of a certain angle in the board down its length.
