In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Well I think I met my match! My current wife, ( I”m considering trading her in), always says I never build anything for her, or as she would say US. (yeah right). A while back our projection screen television committed suicide. So we bought a flat screen model that hangs on the wall. Of course all the “stuff” that used to sit on top of the previous T.V. cabinet was demoted to sitting on the floor. Thus, the need for a cabinet to sit below the new unit, and house the...

The making of a chess board with veneer. Mark made a comment earlier this week about a chess board that was presented as a project, that he’d like to make one for his son. I sent him a private message and suggested that if he wanted to make a chess board, that I’d provide the veneer and some instructions on making it. There have been other posts in the last couple of weeks about veneering and vacuum veneering. Mark replied that he didn’t have the equipment to do the veneering. I told hi...
