    How do you transport your wood?

    I have a beater 2005 2 door Tacoma. The wife has a 4 door Tacoma but, that thing doesn't have a bed, it has a purse. I picked up some spare D-Rings that were meant for a Sprinter. 4 for $16 and they fit the stock Tacoma bed bolts. With 4 points of tie down and a couple of wide ratchet straps, the "purse" does OK on shorter stock.

    Advanced Woodworking Section

    Somehow I've managed to not wander over to this section. I concur with wdwerker and thank him personally for some things he's posted that made me go . . . "hey, look what he's doing!". We advance by learning, not by arriving. Man, don't I wax philosophical in the morning.

    Grr-ripper

    Another user of pairs here. I have scars on mine as well. One for not setting the depth correctly (and it is a generous variable), once through the center foot and other dings and such. Glad the block took the hit for you. I have watched for sales and clearances over the years and accumulated quite a bevy of parts on the cheap. I recommend this approach for all us Grr-Ripper lovers.

    Panel Sled

    Thanks for the knife in the ribs about having enough room . Great stuff Kev. As always, I really appreciate the effort put into you videos. The important lesson here to me is that when you have a need for one of these shop helpers, go ahead and take the time to make it. It only took me a couple of times of wondering "why did I wait so long" to really take that lesson to heart.

    You can tell I spent a lot of time with Grandma when I was young. Now I'm a hybrid; I wash clothes in a warshing machine.

    Arts and Craft Sideboard

    Here's a box I made for mom to keep her snapshots in. She needed more room so I made another one a year later.

    This is always a shock to the newbee. Kind of like seeing the price of a lathe and thinking that is the bulk of what you will spend

    Arts and Craft Sideboard

    Beautifully done. I love the care on the end panel figure. I would be all kinds of proud of that piece. Thanks so much for taking the time to take and post all the pics. It really give us the chance to ride along and enjoy the journey through your efforts.

    Making Repetitive Mortises

    I am also in the camp that uses floating tenons or traditional tenons as works best for the situation. I sometimes square the mortise, I sometimes round the edges of the tenon. Certainly a mortise done with a router and jig allows great accuracy and repeatability. I think your lack of repeatability comes from stops lacking in your setup. If you jig mounts securely your width is controlled. all we have to do is find a reliable start and stop position. I would build one of the many shop made jigs you can find in the magazines or on the internet, Michael Fortune's version looks fine. Just be sure the version you choose allows for a reliable start/stop block or template bushing control. You could also put a "Want To Buy" add around for a Mortise Pal (no longer made). It comes with a variety of templates and you can easily add more of your own. Although I have a Domino, it is not an end-all / be-all mortiser. It is a very useful tool but, only one blade in my Swiss army knife of tools and methods.

    Kudos to her and ix-nay on the sour grapes. Folks used to dog Steve Ramsey and he's doing it full time now. I seem to remember when Marc was doing little podcasts here and there . Now the guy who got rich off the Pet Rock? That's something to be jealous of .
