My expanding 1/4" plywood - 3 replies
Recently I picked up some plywood from Menards for building some drawers for one of my shop workbenches. I cut the sheets down last night and prepared to do a dry fit for one drawer. I’m using 1/2” ply for the drawer sides with a 1/4” ply drawer bottom. I ran all the sides through my router table using a 1/4” straight ...

I’m not going to name names but recently I posted a comment on someone’s website (probably a recognizable name by many). The comment was related to the topic that the person had posted. It was not a complaint just an item for discussion and my personal findings on the topic. I check back after a week or so and didn’t get any...

Choosing a tail vise for a new workbench - 5 replies
I’m planning out a workbench for my garage shop. I had purchased this 9” Rockler quick release vise for the front vise but I cannot decide on what to use for the tail vise (http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=17246&filter=vise).

Wood storage design for a garage shop - 5 replies
I’m wanting to get more organized and take the wood that I currently have leaning against my garage wall (sheets, 2x’s, 1x’s scrap, you name it) and build a lumber storage rack. I’m thinking of a vertical storage rack design but I’m not for sure yet. I’ve been milling some of my own lumber with a chainsaw mi...
