  • 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. I know these have nothing to do with wood working but they were realy cool so here ya go
  2. i looked into a bunch of reviews as well i found this kid who saw that there was some sag flex in track and riged it up so that it wont flex. i was going to get the the fully loaded system with a dwalt router built into it. i plan on contacting the company and seeing if they have addressed the issue of the gantry (think that would be right word) has been stiffened up so it wont flex but i can do like this kid did and stiffen the system up. and they have a program for carving reliefs called vcarve that i think ill get.
  3. my neighbor is realy decent guy only fault is he does not care about wood working. he has a huge 160+ pound german shepherd so they run and play all the time but he slobbers all over her and she gets dirty all the time.
  4. my friend has a cnc router that he just got i think that im going to have him make me some small disks with my name and "company name" and emblem on them then i can just use a forstner and glue the disks in.
  5. thinking that i will buy and build a cnc router for my shop this seems like its manageable in price and it seems to have decent reviews. going to start saving up now and hopefully by Christmas ill have saved up the money needed. went to see a friend of mine and he just bought a cnc and we were playing with it and it seems great especialy for someone who wants to do more inlay in the shop.
  6. took a bit of a break from the forum to work on the house and figure this is the perfect page to announce i am back. in the time i have been away i have finalized and bought a house, layed down a wood floor in living room, put in ceramic floor in front hall, rescreened all my windows. got a dog named her frankie and about to kill her and bury her in the hole she digs in the same spot every morning. plus a million other small tasks. those of you who kept saysing that i need a girlfriend and have too much free time welllllll now i have no free time for the forum but im going to fit it in sometime.
  7. very nice looking are you concerned about the lid warping down the road? looks like it might bow outwards
  8. i have my lathe stand up(cabinet) up against the wall that way the chips dont fall behind the stand which i filled with 3 bags of sand so its too heavy to move around on my own. if they fell behind it i would never clean back there.
  9. its good to have the kids in the shop especially the girls as far as i am concerned there is not enough girls making furniture and other fine wood working. hopefuly this wont be a one off project for her.
  10. I just wrote to the company asking if the had a diagram showing where the adjustment is so I can figure out if the hole will go through a rib or not
  11. cant add a plate its already has a router space and the rest is solid metal just no router plate and im sick of squatting down to adjust my router that's why I want a crank.
  12. im looking to update my router in my router table (old router is a pain to adjust depth as its just a plunge router no micro adjust. I was thinking of buying the triton router to install onto my router table. it can be used as both a plunged router or a fixed base with a micro adjustment built into the handle but It also has a crank that can be threaded through my router table top. the only problem is that I have this table saw/router it has no plate or space for a lift that's why im buying a router with a built in lift (also it saves me money so what ill have to do is drill a hole in my table saw top to fit in the crank. before I spend the money for the router is this a terrible idea to drill into table top? or will it be ok? also need to drill a hole for a pivot pin the table saw does not plan for that.
  13. when you go in make sure you know what your buying just like in normal shoping if you go in to grocery store not know what you will buy you will buy extra ice cream, tht pack of cookies you don't want ect.... before you know it you will have a stack of lumber you wont be used
  14. how much were they?
  15. sorry did not get back to you havent had internet for about a month since i moved just got it up and going. when i first started we needed something right away so i had a large purple 55 gall drum that has clips on the lid to lock it in place and a seal on the inside. i cut a hole and fed my shop vac hose into one side added a elbo on it that is the feed in so it sends the chips towards the wall, and a intake is near the lid after 4 years i would totally do it different and go with the thein and mount that to the lid of the drum. in my personal shop that i just set up ill do that when ever i have 5 min to dedicate it to that project. instead of doing a harbor freight DC and fit to the lid of my drum ill instead build one out of pvc and plywood and mount to the bottom of my lid then lift it off when i empty the drum. why inside because the drum i have is a double layered plastic container so if i mount to the top and cut a slot in the lid it will put dust inside the inside and outside layer of my drum. ps i agree april is cute and talented
