    Afternoon all, I remember reading an article/watching a video where a guy used a jig of some sort with a router, to get "dead-on spacing/accuracy" for these but for the life of me, cannot seem to remember where or who did it? Anyone here have any experience with such a thing? I am planing to...

    Happy New Year! Recently my father-in-law was having a barn taken down, and gave me first pick of boards to come down for my lumber stash. The barn stood on the property that he grew up on, and that's been in his family for over 100 years. It was built by his uncle from lumber cut and...

    Cutting Board Finish - Updated with Pictures

    I am working on my first cutting boards for Christmas presents. I have completed three. I put about 4 - 5 coats of mineral oil on each side, about 2 coats per day. Then I put on two coats of 1:6 beeswax/mineral oil. I hand rubbed them in for about 3 - 4 minutes per board per coat. I allowed...

    Question on Cutting Board

    Can you use Soft maple for an end grain cutting board. I know you can use Hard maple but didn't know what the difference was.

    Cutting a spline in a long piece of wood

    I am building a patio table and ran into the issue where the 45degree joints at each end of the table just do not seem to have much strength. I was thinking of cutting a spline for the corners but two of the boards are about 87" long and would be hard to hold on a table saw to cut the spline...

    Cutting angled tenons

    I will be starting a new coffee table soon in which the legs will be canted out from the stretchers at a modest angle (10-15* maybe?). When cutting the M&T joints here, should i angle the mortises when i cut those or should i cut angled tenons to fit square-cut mortises? I honestly don't know...

    Cutting Table For Plywood Sheets - the table corner

    I took this photo to show the saw kerfs in the top of the table. These do no harm anything as they are all shallow. When the table finally gets too many of these I'll make a replacement table top and transfer the legs to it.

    Cutting Table For Plywood Sheets - HDPE guide

    You can make this piece to fit whatever brand of straightedge you may have. Mine, both the 4' and 8' came from Peachtree Woodworking in Atlanta. They are both identical except for the length and they lock in place from underneath much like the other straightedge clamps on the market.

    Cutting Table For Plywood Sheets -2nd view zero clearance foot

    A full view of the zero clearance base. Notice the piece of HDPE on the facing edge. It has grooves in it that match the top of my straightedge so the saw is quided during the cut. This isn't necessary, but makes it easier the saw in alignment with the straightedge during the cut.
