  • Woodworking Interests I am a wood shop teacher and most things i make are small boxes, plant stands, and cuting boards and so forth because i get most of my wood from a urban lumber company and small shops. they just gives me small cut offs from their boards for the kids to use. i find my inturest drifting towards inlay especialy in wood turnings. i am now working on a collction of different mediums that can be ground and cut up to be used for inlay. check out my work at

  1. craftsman 21914 need repair

    ya i was looking on the same site and could not find the part so i am just wondering if you can just mount a different table onto the column as long as its the same diameter. 
  2. craftsman 21914 need repair

  3. craftsman 21914 need repair

  4. Flooring help looks difficult

    good idea with the mdf spacer that should help me keep things in line I already have floorboards so I should be able to skip the raw wood and finishing it before I put in the tile.  so just have to lay the wood then lay the tile separate.  then just cut each tile to fit.
  5. Flooring help looks difficult

    What if instead of tile I use an some kind of epoxy floor filler then I can lay out the wood and then fill the inside. Or maybe I could do a random tile placement like river stones then I would not need to have perfect tile layouts or level floors or leave off large tile and do small tiles they would be easer to cut and lay in since there in 12x12 sheets not realy woried about time to put in don't have a family and I have lots of free time thought to come in and spend a hour every night working n it.
  6. Flooring help looks difficult

    Custom with hardwood 
  7. So I want to do my front entrance like this but this looks very difficult has anyone done anything like this and can explain it to to me or show me a web site maybe a utube video showing the walk through.  I don't really know what to search for does this technique have a  name that I can look up? By the way was going to do this with my wall to match.  
  8. Lumber price list

    My guy usualy sells to be on a huge discount.  I buy the odd ball lumber he can't get rid off or he cuts large blocks for turning. When he sells me lumber its usualy the left over from a large deal.  For example he has a order for 10000 bf of lumber he will sell me the left over boards from the tree's or he gets rid of old stock to make room for the 10000 bf order to dry.  Sometime it beans I have to let the lumber dry in my house for a few months but I still get lumber for next to nothing.  Only bad part is few boards are matching lumber.   Bought 42bf of cherry 3/4 by 6in by 8ft for 50 bucks if I go by owl then I should have paid 250 guess I did good. Think I'll go buy the rest of the boards.  Want to makE some furniture so I'll buy all he has. 
  9. Lumber price list

    Anyone know if there is a price list out there for lumber I figure there must be a price standard. I know prices change and there are all kinds of lumber grades but I still need to figure a price to offer for some lumber.  So does anyone know of a database that has prices that I can use as a bases for figuring out how much to offer? 
  10. Sign making advice

    Pantograph never thought of that might buy this set up only making one to sell but I want to make some letters for my house and a sighn for my shop to hang outside.  Maybe I can offer this as a sighn making part of my hobby to sell to people.  People keep talking about how it an be used for 3D work but it seems little bulky for any kind of detail.   Other option is to buy a CNC  router but that gets pricy for 3 signs  anyone ever used one of these?
  11. Sign making advice

    Someone asked me to make her a sign  before I make it I have a few questions.   I don't have a router that's not mounted in my router table.  So I will buy a router to do this but also to use on other projects.  So what kind of router should I get? I was thinking a edge trim router to be lighter and easier to see what I'm cutting. Or do they need the power and weight of a full size router?  Are the templates they sell worth having or are they a waste of money? What kind of bits do I need to use? Should Invest in down cut spiral router bits? Is it worth taking the time to make my own templates on a scroll saw to pattern route the letters or should I just hand route the letters? any advice would be helpful        
  12. table saw opinion for art center

    thanks Scott this is a a very professional and help full review you give both its strengths and weeknesses just what i was looking for.  i had already thought that maybe it was a little under powered. but prity sure they wont be cuting up slabs of iron wood so they should be ok.    
  13. table saw opinion for art center

    i just dont want blanket statements what specific like the table saw at work all the screws striped so i replaced them and the gear shift clogs easy because the dust collection hole is too small ect...  i just hate flat statements of its crapsman
  14. table saw opinion for art center

    there going to be making frames for pictures and things to stretch canvas across or to make simple stands and bases so they wont be doing too much complicated work and there all unprofesionals so a strait cut on table saw will be ideal. 
  15.   yes i know its craftsman please dont post about it being crapsman this is going to be bought by a art co-op that asked my opinion. never used the tool but its a year old and the guy wants 500 is it worth it for them to buy it since they wont be doing intense work on it and they cant repair any old powermatics table saws they are not a wood shop they just need something to rip down some boards.
