  2. For the dog yards. We've gotten by with cheap bagging mowers for the dog yards for over a decade. They had to be followed by a Billygoat blower to keep the dogs from tracking cut grass into the house. The last one of those played out this morning. Pam said to get one that would be easy for her to use, and to get a good one. After a little shopping online, I decided on a Snapper, after reading some comments on a couple of landscaping forums. I wasn't going to get the electric start model, but it was the only one the closest dealer (an hour away had), and Pam said she'd lik

  3. I would love to see pictures of any projects anyone has finished. I have done a few little projects with live oak and I love the grain pattern. But as many have said already, patience is the key.

  4. I built the cedar potting table a year ago for my neighbor. They didn't like the view of buckets and boxes. I made the styles and rails 1 inch thick dressed. The 1 inch stock around here is 11/16 with one face rough. I milled it out of 2" stock with leftovers for slats. The frame is held together with dominoes. I used the large domino 700 for this project. I also added permanent slats on the ends. The table is cedar also. All metal is stainless steel. The legs have 1/2" high density slippery plastic attached to the bottoms. Cant suck up water and rot. The choice was no hinges. There are 2 - 1/

  5. Yes im aware this is a hobby forum. That was the point bringing up the shaper in the home shop. I'm already on woodweb, but they know the advantages of shapers over there. I still think a shaper is a better tool for the home shop than a router table. As for my shop ill post something up in the correct forum, once I browse around to figure out where that is. I dabble in cabinets, millwork and furniture on occasion.

  7. I put some holes in paper from a long way off... That top left corner was the last 3 shots and my shoulder was quite sore. Flinching resulted.

  9. That’s exactly what I needed to see. If the blade was around both wheels without a cut in the dust block, I was going to cry. Thanks a ton!

  10. Another shaper benefit that you can't with a router. Left and right coping. Easier if you have a double spindle shaper (or a couple single spindles)

  12. Darn nice job! Proof that not all fine Woodworking belongs in the house. I recall @TerryMcK‘s arbor gate a couple of years ago.

  14. I built my Big Green Egg table from TWW plans. I have the large egg, not XL as shown in the plans. I don't have a Domino, but I do have a DowelMax so I used 2 x 3/8" dowels for the slats. Bottom slats have 2 dowels on each end, top slats have 3. I made the table top 1" thick verses 3/4 as the plans call for. Just like in Marc's video, I used Sapele wood with the Osmo finish. The BGE Universal table cover fits it perfectly.

  17. It can be configured for 120 volt, but if you can get 240 volt you're much better off. The fence is damn near right on out of the box, and to get it right takes just a little tweaking. The original blade that comes with the saw is close to junk, but it's a fair backup, when your good blade is getting sharpened. Or you could just kill a six pack till the good blade is back.
