  1. Welcome to the journey. I am in the middle of the split top roubo build as well. I'm doing to top out of LVL and the base from SYP. I am also incorporating some walnut that has been air drying since my granddad cut the tree down 50+ years ago. If this stupid winter would go away so that I can get a little more time in my unheated garage to work on it, I would be a much happier camper.
  2. This is a great tip and service, but we need to keep it on the down low. If everyone knows about it then it won't be a Craig's List advantage anymore.
  3. I have that same saw and got frustrated enough with the fence that I replaced it with the Vega Pro 40 a few weeks ago. Now I'm back to loving my table saw.
  4. +1 on the Vega. Installed mine a few weeks ago, and I love it.
  5. +1 on the Grizzly G0715P. The only complaint I have had with mine is the fence was difficult to keep calibrated. It wasn't a huge problem, but I got tired of it and just upgraded the fence to the Vega Pro 40 (I'm actually finishing the installation tonight.) If I had to do it all over again, at that price point, I would still go with the Grizzly G0715P.
  6. Check out this guide from Lifehacker. http://lifehacker.com/5809765/how-to-rip-a-dvd-to-your-computer
  7. I owned that drill press for about a year and sold it just a couple of weeks ago. I never had any problems with it. The only reason I upgraded to a floor model was because I started making some wooden pens and wanted something with more quill travel.
  8. Thanks for the replies so far. I agree that I am very lucky, and I'll be sure to do some prototypes first. I had been putting off purchasing the lumber for this project because I hadn't found a good place locally to buy it and I wasn't sure of the best place to order it online. I am sure glad I waited! My grandfather has done some woodworking in the past, but I'm not sure exactly how the lumber is stored right now. I'm picking it up this weekend, so I'll see it then. Any recommendations on a relatively cheap but good moisture meter?
  9. I am just getting started in woodworking, and I have a question that I am hoping someone here can help with. My first big project is going to be a desk for my son. I mentioned to my grandparents last week that I was planning to build it out of walnut. That was when I found out that there is a stack of rough cut walnut lumber that has been in their barn for about 50 years that I was welcome to use. So, my question is, are there any specific things I need to keep in mind or things to do or not do when surfacing and working with lumber that was rough cut 50 years ago? Thanks in advance! D
  10. Hello all - This is my first post here, but I have been reading off and on for a while. I am just getting into woodworking, and I am needing some help making a decision about what table saw to buy. Here are the requirements... Total cost (including tax/shipping) of less than $1000 Runs on 110V Prefer hybrid type I had pretty much decided on the Grizzly G0715P, but when I got ready to order it yesterday the sale price was gone, so now I am reevaluating. http://www.grizzly.com/products/10-Hybrid-Tablesaw-with-Riving-Knife-Polar-Bear-Series/G0715P Any help that you all can provide
