My last experience with woodworking was winning the woodshop award in 7th grade. Since then I have been doing everything but woodworking. The oppotunity has arisen to really get into the craft, so I plan on diving in head first. I have been doing general construction stuff around my first home the past 6 months and it seems that my funds for woodworking equipment and tools has faded. In the meantime, I have and will continue to get my hands on any material I can get my hands on: videos, magazines, books, websites, etc. I think I have made my Tools Wish List 3 or 4 times, and it keeps changing and growing the more I learn. I hope to learn from others and share what I learn while making my own projects.

Found some more time after brewing a Hazlenut Nectar beer. So, I am testing for blade parallelism to double check against sight measurements. Here’s what I did:1. Perform a cross-cut from both sides of the blade. This process goes as ...
After taking the fence and router table off, I had to get set-up for ts calibration and set-up. I also fixed an issue with the left miter slot (miter issue). I had already checked the blade 90 to the table – so that is already good to go. ...
