Has anyone used this product to construct wall cabinets for the shop? I was thinking about using it for wall cabinet carcasses and then using solid wood for the remainder of the construction. Any thoughts (good or bad)?

I then checked it on the Wixe...

10 Years and Quite the Change - 4 replies

I’ve been away from woodworking for about 10 years. I am just now acquiring tools and machinery for my garage shop. I can’t believe how much things have changed in my absence.

Powermatic PM1000 Table Saw - 7 replies

I am contemplating the purchase of this saw. If you own one or have experience with one, could you please share your opinion with me about the machine?
