    Any advice for a basic shop for a teenager?

    Hey all, I'm planning on spending my winter break re-organizing the un-finished section of my basement to set it up for woodworking projects. But the catch is that I'm currently a high school junior and will (hopefully) be going to college in 2013, and my parents will probably be moving and...

    RAS - Basic safety procedures

    Just picked this up from CraigsList. Holding the handle with the right hand, there is the advantage of seeing the cut being made and using, if necessary, my stronger arm to control any lurching forward of the blade. Disadvantage is the blade is aimed at my right boob. Holding the handle with...

    Basic carving set for cabinet pulls, handles etc

    I have always liked the hand shaped pulls on Krenov's cabinets. I would like to carve handles for a small box top and probably a cabinet door/drawer in the future. Any suggested reading? Any recommendations on where to get started? Thanks! Salem

    Basic Cabinet Construction Question

    I learned to build all my kitchen base cabinets with a 3 1/2" toe space. But...I am not happy with the way my cuts come out for this. I use a jig saw but the cuts are never spot on. There is always one cut that wanders or whatever. What is your technique for making this cut?

    Basic Question

    I turned some green spalted maple and left it a little oversized and put anchorseal on it everywhere except the tenon on the bottom so I wouldn't interfer with putting it back on the lathe in 6 mts.

    Basic Bandsaw Question

    I have never owned (or used) a band saw before and I am trying to self teach myself so I have a very basic question about fences. As soon as I got my $175 band saw home I immediately researched and ordered a $110 fence for it. Now, this blue fence looks right pretty sitting there but, other than...

    Basic ad-vise

    I'm building a workbench, sort of a hybrid between two PWW designs - the slab from one and the frame from another. So far, I have about 20 hours into the 24-hour bench, and I'm halfway done :-) :eusa_whis I purchased a large front vise from Lee Valley, and want to mount it on the shoulder (as...

    Looking for basic rocking chair plans

    Good Morning......8-O I am searching for a set of plans to build a basic rocker. I have plans for an adirondak style, but am looking for something a bit more formal. I've never built one, but my best friend's wife is pregnant and I figure that gives me just enough time to build one for a new...

    Jointer Basic Training

    Yesterday, I finished refurbishing an old 6" Craftsman jointer that I inherited from my Dad. It has a 36" cast iron bed and fence and seems to run OK after I built a stand and installed a motor and new blades. I need some advice on properly using my new old jointer. I have never used one...
