I just started woodworking this year. I am still working in my garage, and I don't even have a dust collection system. Just a Sthil gas blower and alot of passion to make saw dust. I have done a few small projects for instance. I have made a few small cabinets, wooden trash cans book cases, and an oak hope chest with a raised panel front for my future sister in law that I a really proud of. My most recent project was a set of cabinets. I took on this project for my brother and ended up building 44' of cabinets, and the doors and drawers. What a job, but we just finished, and they are now being painted. That was a lot of fun, I already have orders for my next set which will be built out of oak. This will be a little tougher, but not to bad.

I just joined the site today, I guess because I am in need of some more professional advice than my own. This year I started filling my garage with woodworking tools. Boy is my wife glad, now I can build her things you can’t buy at the store. Anyway I purchased a 2 hp shop fox shaper. Yesterday after completing my first set of kitchen cabinets for my brother I attempted to run an Amana 962 Crown Molding cutter on my shaper. I had no suceess, I could not manually and with one featherboard get the crown to come out perfectly. After ruining 5 or 6 boards I decided to not make crown until I come up with a better solution. I have looked at power feeders. Is that the best option? What size would be adequate for my shaper? Does the power feeder have to be positioned vertically, and do they make powerfeeders that go vertically? As you can see I have alot of questions, and I need some help. I talked to a couple of other woodworkers and they suggested molding machines or purchasing the crown. I have a shaper cutter, and I want to use it, I just need some advice on how to set up my equipment. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a 3hp shaper and have not had to run crown yet. When you start running large bits it is hard to hold and feed the wood consistently compared to a router. Lee Jersberger would be a good guy to consult as Karson suggested.

Anyway, Welcome to LJ! You came to a great open source community of people withdiverse knowledge and the willingness to share.

I am looking forward to your projects.
