Lighting faux pas - 10 replies
I usually just leave my garage door open and that provides sufficient light and air circulation for what I’m doing. With the shorter days and cooler temps it’s tough to get much done with after about 6 pm. I went to lowes yesterday and bought what I thought was just a 4ft T8 hanging light. After opening it last night and thinking on...

question on popular woodworking plan - 12 replies
hey all :) So I’m working on a miter saw stand project I found in a library book, published by popular woodworking I think. I keep meaning to do a short writeup on it but forgetting. It’s a great book! Anyway, the plans for the stand and it’s helper stand call for trimming the 2×4 parts down to 1 1/4×3 1/4. Squari...

Oh look! a jointer on Craigslist!
On a whim, I checked out possible joiners on craigslist to see what might actually be out there. Low and behold I found this. I had to chuckle at the ‘works like new’ bit from the look of the picture. Is this even worth rehabbing?? Then I actually found an older Delta that looks a bit better for 10 bucks cheaper. The age doesnR...

new fence for a craftsman 113.298341 - 5 replies
starting the process of poking around and trying to figure out which after market fences will work for my older Craftsman table saw, and was hoping some of you all would have traveled this road before me and may be able to enlighten my path a bit. Does anyone currently have an incra/delta/verycoolsuper tool fence they use on this or similar age...

Easy measurement conversions? - 10 replies
So I’m probably going to show my newbieness here but I’d rather be safe than sorry. I’m working from a set of plans for Modular Tool bins (seems to be in every The Complete Small Shop magazine and at least one Woodsmith book I own). The dimensions call for 3/4 and 1/2 in ply. Since this is going to be residing in my garage, I w...

Hi All! Since in inherited my dads Craftsman table saw and bandsaw (complete with original manuals) I’ve been lurking the forums for cleaning info, etc. I’m in the process of putting the extensions back on and was wondering if there is an easier way than having to put the bolts in, lift them into place and balance with one hand w...

Too Short Shelves - 14 replies
Rather than getting stuck trying to figure out where I went wrong (still convinced the plans were wrong but oh well), I’m trying to figure out how to lengthen some plywood shelves, and wanted to run it past you guys to make sure I’m on the right path. The cut list stated to make the shelves 19 3/4 deep by 17 1/2 inches wide…wel...

Planning for saw kerf? - 18 replies
I’m sure this is a newbie question but I’m attempting to design my project in a way that maximizes the needed plywood (going for a red oak ply).

Hi All! I’m looking to start a new (hopefully quick) project for work. my money maker is in a cubicle, and I’d like to start having the ability to stand while I work. I have a dual monitor set up, so I would need to raise both monitors, and a keyboard/mouse arrangement. So far my thought process seems stuck on coming up with a pla...

stain...removal? - 10 replies
Ok, so I can’t remember where I got the crazy idea of trying to finish my pieces to save myself down the line or attempt to get a smoother finish on the inside of my cabinet case – but I did. Of course, through this whole process of just trying to get the entertainment center together, I now have to find the best way to strip the 3/...

Cedar shakes? - 6 replies
Hey everybody! I’m hoping I’m in the right spot for this question, so here goes! a few years back I took down a tiki bar in my basement (previous owner), and was thinking that I should keep the cedar shakes used to line the back wall and the front of the bar because it seemed a waste to toss them out. They don’t seem to be f...

Cabinet door quandry - 4 replies
Ok, so I’m so close to having this entertainment center finished, and I think I’ve also found the root of my issue… Somewhere along the line the cabinet is not square. Water under the bridge, and I could swear a million times over it was square when I first started… unfortunately too much is done on it to go back and fix ...

what to adjust first/last/next? - 12 replies
Morning everyone! I could really use some input on something I’ve been fuddling with for the past hour or so. I broke out my new Wood River block plane (#4) last night, and proceeded to dismantle, hone and sharpen the blade. I put it back together this morning once I finished with the blade, and can’t for the life of me figure out wh...

Hey everybody – My entertainment center has about ground to a halt as it is the last push before the quarter is done, but I’ve run into a small conundrum. My dad was kind enough to cut the boards to size for me, and I was able to start dry piecing the ends together. There’s a piece of red oak ply in the middle (roughly 20 in ...
