Milling rough Western Red Cedar. - 5 replies
Have a lift of Western Red Cedar in my shop that is really in the way, I purchased it for a job which was cancelled, so I decided to start building Cedar chests. I really enjoy working with the Cedar as there are so many different grains and colours, from reds to white. As everyone knows its a real soft wood and easily damaged. When I purchased ...

Oneway 2436 - 11 replies
Well this year Santa came early and delivered my new lathe. Was a little heavy to muscle around and get it off the pallet but thanks to the wheel kit and a little blocking I managed. It arrived around one week after they shipped it from Stratford Ontario to Prince George BC with no damage. Will be pretty happy to give it a try.

Festool - 8 replies
Went shopping today and picked up a Festool Ts 75 with a 32”, 75” & 118” track, a fine tooth blade and 2 track clamps.

Dewalt rail table - 1 reply
Needed to cut a bunch of cabinet box pieces exactly the same length, so I built a table to add to the rail of my compound mitre saw, wondering why I went without one for so long. So nice to clamp a stopper block to the fence and cut away.

Tools - 8 replies
Got the bug and made my first Festool purchase a CT 36 dust extractor and 5” orbital sander, a little pricey but hopefully worth it. Also purchased an Infinity 101 Coping sled to use on my shaper and router table, really well built and should give my copes a perfectly square cut.

Raised panels - 6 replies
Used my shaper for the first time to make some raised panels for a small project I am building. This is the first time I have ever made them and they turned out not to bad. I used Royce//Ayr cutting heads and they cut very true and smooth. It was a little intimidating at first as that 2 lb. cutter turning at 8000 RPM. Could get quite nasty on th...

Ready to install PVC trunk work for my dust collection system. The elbows and pipe seem to fit pretty tight, should a person just use compression fitting or glue the joints up?

Time has come to purchase some cutter heads for doing raised panel doors on my 1 1/4” shaper with power feed. I am not really to sure of which brand to purchase, but I have been quoted around $2600.00 plus tax for a Royce//ayr raised panel cutter with rub collar and back cutter, a rail cutter and a stile cutter. By the time this would be ...

Breadboard tabletop - 6 replies
Well just putting my first breadboard style tabletop together and used my router and a straight bit to cut my tenon, the questions are how much room do you think I should give the mortise for expansion? And do you think the tenon should be left full length as shown in the photo, or broken down into multiple tenons?
