  1. This made me think of a scene from Planes Trains And Automobiles! How about those Bears
  2. I predict some sanding in your future!
  3. Wow! Your project was perfection but, my favorite parts were all the clever jigs you used in this project. The dovetail jig was genius but, the jig that made my day was cutting the grooves in the curved drawer fronts I will steal this idea or some variation at some point. You inspire me with every project I've seen of yours.
  4. Adam savage of Mythbusters fame recommends the Praxxon rotary tool I personally have not used this tool. He talks in length about the Praxxon tool around 7:42 of the video Here's the link to Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0017PWTX8/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=testedcom-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B0017PWTX8&linkId=50aea09b61669e8de5d2ac6b9f3d62f4
  5. I built 4 doors for a cabinet I'm building my daughter I wasn't happy with the unevenness after gluing them up yesterday. I didn't want to use my orbital sander so I thought I'd run them through my drum sander, trying to hold the over hanging frame level was harder than I imagined and, was making my problems worse so I got PO'd and quit for the night. I woke up this morning with the solution, a plywood sled to carry the doors through the drum sander I used some scrap from building the doors and attached them with some pin nails to the plywood I cut for the sled the middle one keep
  6. Beautiful table @Bmac I enjoyed this build you do outstanding work and your workmanship is inspiring! But this build seemed to drag on too long, you could have built a kayak in this length of time. No when you start a project the speed that you work is impressive, can't wait to see what you come up with next.
  7. Yes I've already seen this video, that slab as beautiful as it is the size of the table could only fit in a conference room. Maybe you could slice a section out of the middle of the slab and glue the 2 edge pieces back together (don't get me wrong I wish that slab was my problem) and moving that monster around you would have to call in all the favors everyone would stop answering the phone when you call.
  8. People that have trouble opening band aids, double yellow lines, people who lick their fingers to open bags and, easily opened coffee bags...... everything really!
  9. Izzy's the man! I've thought about trying this method just for fun, as I own a lathe I use it but some day..... It looks like you've got this method down to an art, I'm looking forward to your next post.
  10. If you were turning between centers you have all the information you need. You just need to figure out the dia. of the face plate, then set a compass to the radius (half the diameter measurement) you have the center point of the piece you were turning, put the the point of your compass in the center point of your turning and swing a line the dia. of your face plate. Now mount the the face plate on the circle you've drawn, if it's nots running true then your face plate is out of round or, it could be warped either way you would need a new face plate. Good luck
  11. Plastic laminate would make a surface that would make popping dried glue off easy peasy. I've used it in a few places in my shop, when I buy it I go to shop that installs plastic laminate I buy their remnants they usually have some good sized pieces when they do a kitchen or bathroom counter top job they have to buy large sheets cut them down to fit the countertops then they store the remnants and the place I get mine from is a flooring company who also installs laminate. The table in your picture would probably be a three piece job, I find doing the laminate work pretty easy I use contact c
  12. That's different where the trigger is located off to the side like that and not on the pistol grip behind the saw. You would have to use both hands You wouldn't be able to steer the saw with your hand on the side like that hmm. Thank goodness Skil made the model 77, I never liked sidewinders, the first time I used the model 77 I never looked back. That is an interesting saw though a real conversation starter for sure.
  13. Thanks @Chestnut I didn't see the other Handle next to the fence..... never mind I'm RRRRRRRwrong
  14. Or the name of the manufacturer! I am just curious I think we are missing some information. If this contraption slides along the fence and the black push handle is over the work piece nothing would prevent this thing from pivoting away from the fence, as the laws of physics I would assume almost demand that it would pivot away from fence!
