biscuit joiner? - 21 replies

ok there are 4 reviews of biscuit joiners in the review section but I know there are probably more out there.

A round door would look cool on anything from a birdhouse to an actual life-size door. Remember the round doors on the hobbit-holes from Lord of the Rings? Any ideas of how to hinge it? Here is one I found from searching on the web.

Got extra sawdust? - 7 replies

Sawdust comes in handy for cleaning up messeskinda common sense, but here’s what I’ve been using it for lately:I don’t have a drain in my garage and it’s been pretty snowy here lately. Every time I pull in my car, there is a puddle of mud/slush/water on my garage floor. I dump a 5 gallon bucket of sawdust on it, sprea...

which table saw? (it's probably an easy question) - 9 replies

Ok, I have a Jet 10” benchtop table saw w/ stand. I want to change to a 1998 Delta Contractor’s saw. I’m pretty sure I’m going to do it but thought I’d check to see what ya’ll thought.
