    A Few test bowls

    Thanks. Yes I used a Drill press. I created the blanks, then used a circle cutter to cut the outer and inner circle, but not all the way through on the outside. So I kept the square corners on. Then used the drill press and a forstner bit to clear out the center of the bowl making sure the...

    A Few test bowls

    Had some scrap and had watched a few videos on making bowls with out a lathe. So decided to give it a try. Did get a bit messy but would have probably been the same with a lathe. One bowl is 12 inches 2" ambrosia maple, just cleaned up and edge and glued together. One is Walnut 8" diameter...

    Best wood for making a cutting board

    All the ones I have built were Ambrosia Maple, Cherry, and Walnut. At first I made face gain boards because I did not have a drum sander. But about a year ago I got a drum sander and ever since then all have been end grain. The drum sander makes the process so much easier. The other purchase...

    Dust Collection

    I have a Delta 50-760 and have had it for about 11 years. I was looking to either upgrade it or replace it. I have a simple setup in my garage so I don't have the space or need to setup a central dust collector and then pipe everything in. I have all my equipment on wheels and I wheel out each...

    Bar Height Table

    Ok next question. I have the main part of the table glued up. I was going to cut it to length and then add a bread board. I was going to use Dominoes to attach the bread board. The middle would be solid the others would have slight wider cuts on the main table and then a pin push through to...

    Bar Height Table

    One more issue that has come up. I have a 6 inch jointer but all the boards are wider the 6 inches. I have been using the planner and taking just the lightest of passes and it is getting the wood pretty flat but I do have a couple of boards over 10" wide that have a bow maybe 1/4". Trying to...

    Bar Height Table

    Here is a quick sketup of the table top. I have decided to go 36" x 66" and some where between 1 and 1 1/2" thick. Was thinking to have 8" wide Bread board at each end unless it would look better just straight boards. Still trying to figure out the legs. I think metal legs painted black...

    Bar Height Table

    I was able to get a pretty good deal on some rough Walnut and plan on making 3 Bar height tables about 42" by 72". The Walnut is just over 1 inch right now but once I clean it up I am sure it will be thinner than 1 inch. Would this be to thin for a table top. I had thought about doubling up...

    Cross Cut Sled

    I am in the process of building 2 new cross cut sleds. One has just one runner an will be to the right of the blade the other will be a full sled. The issue I have is I glued up 3 pieces of 3/4" plywood 4 inches tall for the back fence. I then routed a dado and installed a t track so I can...

    Epoxy Finish

    I am work on a set of corn hole boards and the Die-Cut decal was very fine and had a minor issue in the transfer. A few pieces did not stick and I have a couple of raised areas when it is not sticking. I did a very thin coat of polycrylic to get everything to stay in place. I was thinking...

    TV Stand Finished

    Took much longer than anticipated but 2 shoulder surgeries, and then waiting for warmish weather so I could apply the finish but the TV stand is now done. It is Hickory. Are floor down stairs is Hickory and teak and really liked the look of the floor so wanted to have a similar look. It is...

    Finish for hickory

    Getting close to starting to finish the hickory tv stand.  Now I am trying to figure out the best finish. I took some scrap and tried a matte poly, but it really did nothing to the look and not what I am looking for.  I have also tried a satin water poly and a semi gloss oil. I kind of...

    TV Stand

    Thanks. It really needs to be able to be "knock-down" for weight issues. It 1.5" thick because I was going for more of a blocky look and I liked the look of the hickory. I had a mock-up at 3/4" but I didn't like the look of it. Also I have a tendency to build thighs to levels that are way...

    Hinges for Garage Cabinet

    I am building a large garage cabinet. About 6” high and 34” wide. The shell is simple 2x4 studs and will have shelves that are going to be set and not adjustable. The question is going to be with the doors. Should I frame them with 2x4 and then use normal door hinges? I was thinking of...

    Thanks for all the help. I just pulled the trigger on the 0690. A bit more than I was planning on spending, but I did just have a grand pretty much drop out of the sky that allowed me to move up abit.
