  1. Hey Folks, Im wondering if my jointer is coplanar or if a subtle dip in my outfeed table is causing the problem. I was jointing some pieces of African mahogany and ended up with rocking chairs trying to joint 1 edge. The more I run it over the jointer the more extreme the hump on the edge gets. My first thought was my outfeed table was sagging but I checked and infeed and outfeed seem coplanar. Then I sat the straight edge on the oufeed table and found a dip right in the middle about .0025", would that be enough to cause this problem?
  2. Well just an update on the Project. I went to the Borg Thursday night for some 3/4" MDF and found that they had 1/2" available(sigh of relief). Anyone who has wrestled 3/4" MDF for any length of time knows that stuff weights about 90 lbs a sheet so 1/2" sounds great. I got two sheets and even had then cut in half since they had a panel saw right there. I used the cutlist plug in for sketchup so I knew it was safe to have the sheets cut. I also got some sand paper and drill bits, total so far on the project: $88.00. I spent saturday morning altering the plans to account for 1/2" mater
  3. I just wanted to add that I built a desk last year that did not turn out. The reason was the drawer was too tall, the desk just was not comfortable at all, to much space between the top of the leg and the top of the desk. I finished it and it ended up being a hall table. Just a word to the wise. Bois had a great little video on his blog about using foam sheets to build a mock up. I haven't tried this yet but perhaps with a project as complex as this it may not be a bad idea. Not sure how the curves would work though. I would definitely do a mock up of some sort. I draw all of my pro
  4. Hi H3nry, Great looking hall table. Really pretty design. I like the medalian at the bottom, it really sets it apart. The only thing I think I would add to the comments is thinning the design up here and there. For example, on the drawers take them down from 3/4 to 3/8 thickness. The nice thing about this is if you are using true 4/4 stock alot of time you can get two drawer sides out of one piece. Also thinning the legs might lighten the design a little. Its a delicate design which I love but I think some of the parts are a little chuncky. Just a little positive critisim.
  5. So my wife came to me on Saturday about this great new furniture store online. She found a new TV console that she fell in love with, this made my stomic knot up, the last thing she fell in love with was a pair of end tables going for $500.00 each(thats 1000.00 bucks for you mathelites!) Needless to say I didnt go for it but just built them myself out of ash. They turned out great. She couldnt be happier and it only cost $80.00 hardware and all. I built them in a weekend, that means I made 920.00 in two days. Not bad huh. Some of these furniture stores are getting out of hand. Anyway
  6. There are a couple of things I do to keep my shop clean. One is from an article, and one is just good old common sense. I read a great article one time. I think it was if Fine Woodworking about keeping a shop from getting out of hand. Its inevitable that a shop will get a little messy durring a project and this is ok to an extent. The article made a great suggestion that I made myself adhear to every day I worked in the shop. It said when you walk in the shop pick up and put away at least 20 things if possible, this can be anything from a clamp to a router bit. Then at the end of the

    Personally I think this is just amazing. Why dont we build buildings like this anymore. With all the labratory testing on building materials and the latest and greatest technology there is no way these new houses and shops will ever last 400 years! Structures for the most part these days are cheap pieces of crap if you ask me. Id love to own a building like this. Not to mention everything this building has seen over the years. Just simply amazing.
  8. Hey Everyone, I wanted to see how many woodworders there were under the age of 30 on this site. This seems to be predominantly an older persons sport. How old are you. What type of Projects have you tackled and what would you say your favorite one was? Im just curious and looking for other woodworkers out there I can relate to. By the Way I'm 25 from Bolivar Mo. I build furniture as a hobby. I love it and wish it were my full time profession, maybe it will be someday . My most recent project was a pair of end tables for my wife. That is the type of thing I usually build but would
