    Cabinet making
  1. I am a complete noob to woodworking, amsd have found this thread very imformative. I have only built 1 bench with mortice and tenon joinery. I cut 5/8"thick 2 1/2" high by 2" long tenon on the ends of 1/2" by 3 1/2" strechers and 4by 5 corner posts. I read somewhere that a tenon should be 1/3 the thickness of the main beam and 3 times as long as thick. Is this normal porportions?
  2. This was also my first thought, second thought who should I give a bearing.
  3. Thanks everyone, some great sugestions here. Dylder thank you for the info on Tower Point Rv park I had not found it in my park search. Yesterday we visited 3 parks in Yuma Az that have woodworking shops on their website. DelPueblo rv park has a woodcarving shop. Country Roads rv village was our second shop and see met the shop monitor and had a tour.... mostly delta equipment well equipped. While there there was a " class" on making a segmented bowl. Looked to me to be great shop/club to spend a couple of winter months at. Our 3rd stop was Sun Vista rv park and the wood shop had already closed for the day, however a quick look though the window..... several lathes a couple of cabinet saws planer joiner sanders etc.
  4. Hi I am a canadian snowbird in the yuma az area for 2 months this winter. I am not a golfer and am having troube finding things to do, that I am interested in. Has anyone here gone to a snowbird rv park that had a woodworking shop? If so what type of equipment, projects, costs etc. We would be lookingg for next winter and prefer dryer climates but would consider Texas Arizona or California. I have thought that it would be a great way to introduce myself to furniture making, and would be willing to pay for the use of the equipment and instruction if available.
