First coat with HVLP gun. How's it look? - 11 replies
So (like I posted in a previous forum topic), I’m painting some doors white. Here is a pic of the doors before they were sanded. I got these doors in the bargain area at Menards. They were already stained but, had no top coat on them. I sanded it down, cleaned it up really well, and put the first coat of paint on. (I didnt use p...

HVLP spraying question - 3 replies
So I used my HVLP sprayer for the first time last weekend (practicing) and it seemed to work pretty well! I thinned the paint out with Windshield Washer fluid. For my first time using it, I think I got pretty good results. I have the day off tomorrow and plan on painting some of our doors (for our house remodel). I have a few questions. ...

Making cabinet doors - 33 replies
I’ve started previous threads on my kitchen remodel. However I wanted to get some of your opinions…. I am making mission style cabinet doors to upgrade our kitchen. They will be painted white. The accuracy and repeatability of my table saw makes this process super slow. I’m wondering instead of doing the tongue and gro...

Anyone know if this table saw is a good buy? - 29 replies
I have been holding out for a SawStop (I’m a Chiropractor – need those fingers), however my wife and I are just about to start our DIY kitchen remodel and I need a good saw to do some cabinet work. I found this Dewalt “cabinet” saw on Craigslist (I don’t think its a true cabinet saw). Anyone have experience with t...

Hey guys. Looking to buy my first miter saw. Just bought a new house and it has a double wide and double deep garage (pole barn). The back half is going to be my new shop! (pics to come).... I have some projects coming up, and the miter saw I borrowed from my brother-in-law is horribly inaccurate. Wondering your thoughts on Miter Saws? ...

HVLP sprayer question - 24 replies
I have the Woodriver Pro HVLP sprayer. I just ordered the 2mm needle kit so I can spray some latex paint. I have never used this sprayer yet. My wife and I bought a house and have a ton of painting to do. I have about 7 doors that we are going to paint white. I am also refinishing all the kitchen cabinets (white as well). Do I need to ...

Lowes discount warehouse - 5 replies
I had a patient of mine tell me that he buys supplies for really cheap at a Lowes discount warehouse. He said it is where Lowes sends damaged returns/etc that they sell for a discounted price. The one he goes to is in Waterloo, IA. He said there were 3 in Iowa total. I’ve never heard of such a place. Anyone else familiar with this? And/o...

need some help with the fireplace! - 10 replies
Hey guys. Its been awhile since I’ve posted! I still come on here to check out the projects almost every day, just no time to actually “get involved” as of late. My wife and I bought a 100 year old house (really well taken care of) and have been doing some cosmetic updating to it, along with a few minor repairs. To the po...

How would you build this? - 12 replies
Hey Guys. I saw this table, and would love to build something similar. I’m trying to wrack my brain about how to make these curved legs. I can come up with a bunch of really complicated ways of making them, but am not seeing the “easiest way out”.... How would you make it???

Video/audio advertisement... - 6 replies
I was reading through someone’s blog today and got interrupted by an extremely annoying advertisement (on the right hand side). It was a video (with audio) advertisement. There was no way to shut it off, which forced me to leave the page and stop reading the blog…. Could I have turned off my volume? Of course, but I shouldn̵...

Fixing a screw up - question - 21 replies
I drilled 3 holes for a hinge only to realize when I was installing the hinge that my holes were like 1/16-1/8” off from where they were supposed to be. I can’t simply just drill new holes because I’m afraid they’ll get sucked into the previous mistake-holes. And if they don’t, the two holes will be so close togethe...

Shops tab, the afterthought of Lumberjocks - 32 replies
A while ago (like 2 years ago) I started a forum topic asking if the Shop tab section was going to get updated to flow better and be more user friendly. I’m pretty sure I got feedback from the admin saying that it was in the works. That was 2 years ago. What happened???? Every tab at the top takes you to a page that is coherent and fits ...

Another Harbor Freight Gem (quick gear clamp) - 18 replies
I’m pretty sure I’ve seen someone post about these before, so hopefully this post isnt completely redundant. I just bought these clamps at Harbor Freight. They were on sale for $12.99. They are awesome! The clamping force is very strong, and it seems like all the important components are metal (not plastic like their other crappy...
