Quick Table Saw Dust Collection Question - 10 replies

Hey guys/gals, I’m getting ready to add some DC to my contractor style table saw. I was planning on building some sort of enclosure for beneath the saw and attaching a hose from my Dust Deputy. Then, I started wondering if I actually need an enclosure, or if I can just add a bottom to the saw with a port for the hose? Obviously, addi...

OSB for Shop Fixtures - 14 replies

Hello, I suppose this could go in one of three forums, but this seems most appropriate to me. I hope I’m not misleading anyone. Several houses are going up in my neighborhood, so I have access to lots of free, good-sized pieces of OSB (mostly 7/16). I need to build a small cart/organized area for scraps and cutoffs. Since I have...

Help on a Sliding TV Platform - 1 reply

Hey folks, A friend of mine asked me to build him a small shelf to allow his television to slide in and out from its current location. What he’s looking for is along the lines of this: I don’t think he is necessarily opposed to buying one, but that would look a little too commercial-ly for his setting, and wouldn’t m...

Question about carving signs with a router... - 7 replies

Hello guys/gals, I’m considering trying to rout a sign as part of a Chistmas gift. I have never done any precision routing of the sort. Am I crazy to think I can get a passable result by free-hand routing with a trim router? Also, if I’m not dreaming, any recommendations/advice would be much appreciated! Thanks,Joe

BTS15 Dust Collection - 7 replies

Hi guys! I was just given a Ryobi BTS15, and (sad, but true) it’s better than my last table saw. This it will be my primary use table saw for the time being (1-2 years). I’ve read a fair amount about the saw on here and BTCentral, among other sites. However, I only came across one guy that had attempted to add dust collection...

In the market for a router... - 30 replies

Hi guys, Sometime in the near future, I’ll be buying a new router. As you can see from my projects page, I am only a hobbiest, and as my shop time is limited, I don’t get in there very much (hopefully that will change soon!). That being said, this isn’t a tool I’ll be using every day, probably not even every week, bu...

Satin poly over semi-gloss - 9 replies

Hey guys, Another quick finishing question. Got some water-based poly on sale. I prefer the look of satin, but they only had it in quart sizes. So, I got a quart of satin, and a gallon of semi-gloss. I figured I could do the first 2-3 coats in semi-gloss and the final coat in satin. It sounds like it should work, to achieve a satin sheen...

I can't stop doubting this design... - 35 replies

Hey guys, I’m building an aquarium stand for my sister. She chose the design based on a cheaply-made, but overpriced (particle board) stand she saw at PetSmart. I got the dimensions of the tank, looked at the picture of the stand she liked, and recreated it in Sketchup, or so I thought. As I finished cutting all the pieces of plywo...

Having trouble editing my profile... - 4 replies

Does anyone else have trouble updating their profile? I have tried several times now to add my location, signature, real name, etc. Each time, I save the changes, then I go back and all the boxes are blank again. The first two times, I did it from my iPhone, so I thought that was the issue. I just tried from my PC, and still no dice. Joe

Coloring Wood Black? - 23 replies

I’m building an aquarium stand for my sister, and she wants it to be black. I’d rather not try shooting oil-based black paint from my low-powered HVLP gun, so I’m leaning toward dye (though, I’m open to any suggestions). My major concern/question is whether or not black dye gets black enough. Would I just need to app...

General Finishes Enduro Pigmented Poly - 0 replies

Hello folks, I’m wondering if anyone here has experience with General Finishes Eduro Pigmented Poly. I’m building an aquarium stand for my sister and she wants it black. I’d love to be able to skip paint and apply this product as a color and a finish. The other option I’m considering is black Transtint dye (or som...

Storing Water-Based Finish - 13 replies

Hi all, I’m hopeful that one or possibly more can shed some light on an issue for me. Like many of you, I don’t get into the shop as often as I’d like, so I have a can of General Finishes Water-Based Top Coat that’s been sitting for about a year. The finish is fine, but the rim of the can has started to rust. The ...
