Location: Portland, OR

Interested in giving my house a face lift! I will start with some simple shelving in my closet and work my way toward some Asian style paneling, doors, and cabinetry, and peeking with a Japanese-style dansu (tansu) stairway into the loft of one of the bedrooms. So this summer I'm taking a Japanese hand tools class. I believe in short cuts when possible, but want to do it all with safety in mind. Trying to figure out the best way to put a guard and other safety features on my Craftsman table saw right now...

Thanks everyone for the welcome. It’s certainly motivating to have somewhere to ask my newbie questions. Why, just yesterday I was looking at my table saw and wondering what the heck to do with it!

Today the missing parts are on their way, I’ve changed the blade of my circular saw, burned some mdf with it, and put the right bit size on my router. I even managed to cut some crooked dados with it. :-) Better to make mistakes than to stare at the tools.

Tomorrow I hope to make some headway on fixing my slowly turning Rockwell/Delta 4” joiner. Isn’t it supposed to average a couple thousand rotations per minute? I think it’s currently averaging a couple thousand per HOUR. Ugh.
