Burton, MI, US
I've been waiting for this one. Thanks
My wife and I are in the planning stage of a kitchen redo these books would help greatly. Thanks
Think, think, think...
I guess when it comes to working with wood I have been guilty of putting the cart before the horse so to speak... I focus so much on technique and tools but really lack knowledge of the materials I work with. This would add quality to my work. Thanks.
Patrick, it must be a Hagerstown thing becasue my shop used to look the same way and some days still does. I just blame it on "being a part of my process" and push on.
Safe operation of a table saw begins as you take it out of the box and put it together. My tip is that you need to ensure your saw is in proper working order and properly set-up.
I am always looking to add to my knowledge base and would appreciate this book very much.
Hardware? Maybe I'm confused but my shop is full of the stuff; table saw, lathe, planer, jointer, bench. Am I confused? Your help would be appreciated.
Love the look of that table. Love the grain and figure of the lower shelf especially.
My current collection of benchtop tools include a 6-1/8" jointer and (by your definition) a 12" bandsaw which is really a stand alone machine. I received the jointer as a gift from my wife (so I'm stuck, you know what I mean)which suited my needs when my shop consisted of one half of a double garage. It has been the tool of most of my frustration over the last few years. The power is dynamite but I find myself very limited due to the size of the infeed & outfeed tables which are 12" respectively. I have tried using my roller stands to help the problem but an unlevel floor makes that challenging as well. It is time consuming registering a flat face or square edge on a board of any length over 4' long. I have thought about having some bed extensions built for it to extend the beds and see if that helped. I have since made a sled for my planer to help with the issues of face jointing a board, works great. My bandsaw is a "craftsman" 12" which is really a nice machine except for the trunnion assembly and I really have no complaints about it. It has plenty of power to resaw 7" of maple, walnut, oak, and cherry and it does an equally fine job on thinner material as well. Any suggestions for my jointer problem would be appreciated.
