Location: Benton, KY

Retired auto mechanic, my first project was a wood sled my wife saw in a magazine. Made it for her one week-end using body tools and a sabre saw, my skill and my tool selection has greatly increased over the years, though now the grandkids get their Christmas pictures taken on the sled. Have made most all of the furniture in our house, and both daughters, as well as many projects for the grandsons, toys, trucks and rocking horses.
Always dragging home scrap wood, never know what you can make with it!

Has anyone ever made a jig for raised panel doors using a table saw? I am re-modeling the kitchen cabinets and want to make raised panel doors.
Any ideas?
