  1. Hi all, I'm putting together a breakfast nook bench for my kitchen. The bench will open on the top for storage under the seating area. The project will be made from mostly 3/4" A1 Maple plywood, the top will be bread boarded with poplar and the whole project painted(likely white). My question is about joinery. I'm debating on whether I need rabbets on the end pieces to set the carcass into with glue or should I just use butt joints with festool dominoes? I can use pocket screws too, but I'd like to use something a bit stronger as I'm imagining this piece taking lots of abuse from kids and folks climbing in and out of the seat. I know I'm likely over thinking this but I want to make sure it comes out nice and any experience out Thanks, Oscar

  3. I just recenlty ordered Nakashima's Soul of a Tree. I have only started thumbing through it but am excited to really get into it. I also own the 3 Krenov Books.
  4. Makin sawdust it's a genuine Herman Miller chair.
  5. SOLD! Sjeff, the electrician told me it would be $1k for installing the service IF we could find the right circuit breaker. I only had one spot left in my panel so that was the main risk. If we couldn't find the right circuit breaker i would need a whole new panel likely bringing the cost up to 1.5-2K. For me as a hobbyist it didn't seem worth it right now.
  6. BC, I got the jointer during the sale. so I paid right around $2K for the jointer. The sale is over and now you can't get this jointer for anything less than what T has already highlighted. And the shipping is going to cost me likely $600 if I refuse it and ship it back to TN.
  7. Hi all, I just wanted to throw out some of my projects. Please be nice with your critiques. but would def like to get your opinions. HA! Most of my work at this point has been inspired by what I see other folks building out there or variations there of. Also I'm realizing I use a lot of live edge walnut. I am about 2 years into this hobby and have def jumped in head first. I'm contemplating doing this on the side as a way to make some fun money or at least self financing. :-S Given all I have spent on festool alone, I need to sell about 500 tables to break even. haha! I've attached a couple of pics of my first few projects. Live edge walnut coffee table with Maple inlay butterflies Live edge walnut sofa table with maple front drawer with legs attached with thru tenons and maple wedges. Similar sofa table wrapped live edge with dominoed base (No thru tenons or drawer) wood movement on this should be interesting and was def an after thought. Walnut live edge bowl
  8. Hi All, I'm Oscar Q. I'm in SF CA but originally from NM and have been woodworking for about 2years now. I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself to the forums. I picked up woodworking as a way to let the creative juices flow and to save money on buying furniture. My wife and I had gone to a popular high end furniture store and we both liked a live edge walnut coffee table. The price though was over $2K!! I looked at it and in typical macho fashion said. "I can make that!" once I started in on the project I was hooked. I've since made two Sofa tables, two jewelry boxes, several frames, cutting boards, beer holders and countless pens. I've started a FB page( https://www.facebook.com/AQdesignSF) and instagram account ( https://instagram.com/aq_designworks/ ) and am pondering (like alot of us) in doing this as a side job to make stuff and make some fun money. I've been a fan of TWW, WTO, and MBW, RW for a while and have been learning a lot through their respective and joint sites along with others. Looking forward to get to know you all. Oscar

  10. Thanks bgreenb. I asked that question and Acme tools(who I ordered it from) said PM will charge them then me the cost of shipping to and from TN to CA. I'm in San Francisco. I edited the original post to include that info.
  11. I have a BRAND NEW IN-BOX Powermatic 60HH 8" Helical Head Jointer. I ordered it but am unable to use it due to electrical constraints in my house. My mistake is your gain. I don't have any pics of it in my possession just yet s its being delivered today(4/22). Below is the description from the powermatic site and stock pic. Thanks bgreenb! I am located in San Francisco as is the jointer. If I return it to PM they will charge me for shipping to and from my location in San Francisco to Tennessee where Jet/PM factory is. This 8 In. jointer meets the demand for accuracy while combining unique, user-friendly functions. The Infeed table lever can be used to rapidly position table height, then the handle rotated for fine-adjustment of cut depth. Fence tilting is accomplished by a worm gear system, smoothly operated by a simple hand wheel. The tables provide 73 In. long extended support. A non-mar insert in the fence protects the table from scratches during adjustments. The jointer is available with a three knife cutter head, or a helical cutter head with four-sided knife inserts. The operating switch is high mounted for easy reach, and the push blocks have a magnetic base - store them on any metallic surface for instant access. Additional Features Helical cutter head with four-sided inserts provides smoother, quieter cutting and a superior finish Extra long tables are mounted on dovetailed ways, for extended workpiece support Adjustment lever offers quick Infeed table positioning and fine-tuning of cut depth High mount switch for operator convenience
  12. Hi Mike, I actually just ordered the Powermatic 60HH 8" jointer and it's supposed to be delivered today. Unfortunately after wrestling with an electrical issue the cost of putting in a new 230V outlet is proving to be too costly for me. Any interest in getting the 60hh vs the parallelogram? online the cost is $2,300 but I'm looking to sell it for $2K. Shane, Congrats!
