  1. table saw sled sizing

    Thanks guys, appreciate the feedback I'm thinking the sled Idea will work well. Smallpatch, I don't think I could leave mine in place as I do a ton of rip cuts. I think I will go with a design with the one runner and a long tail like this.
  2. table saw sled sizing

    Good morning guys, I'm working on making some larger panel cuts and am wondering what size you make your TS sleds? I have a very nice small one but the width just doesn't allow me to cut things like cabinet sides. Would love to see some pics to gleem some ideas from. As a side note I need to cut some plywood with some oval cut outs, I don't have the luxury of a cnc what would be the best way to reduce tearout in these cuts?
  3. What's On Your Work Bench?

    This is a dartboard cabinet I built for a Christmas white elephant swap.
  4. three way joint?

    Cal, yes the joint will be at the base. I think I'm ready to make this once I find time and some type of bushing for the pipe or rod. Was hoping to use 1/2 black pipe which has an od of 0.840 in that will take some looking to find a bushing/sleeve.
  5. I got DISCOVERED!

    look forward to the pics, I have an opportunity to get some metal drawers which I think will be way superior to the plastic bins I have now. Hoarders NO!!! Collectors YES!!!
  6. From My Shop to Yours

    Had a great day with family and friends yesterday, it was a joy. Hope you all had a wonderful day as well. I really enjoy the closeness of this group.
  7. I got DISCOVERED!

    "my storage system for small parts and odds'n ends" is there a picture of this somewhere John?
  8. Lots of history here

    Gene the link doesn't seem to take me anywhere??
  9. three way joint?

    Cal, this is the type of cart I want to build.
  10. Planes...just,....planes

    I'm kind of surprised you stop at 2500? I see allot of the sharpening videos going way higher. I myself have an 8000 grit stone I use to put a final micro bevel on my smoother.
  11. three way joint?

    Absolutely Pete, since I don't do this to make a living I can spend the time to experiment.

    Steve, whats your favorite smoother and how do you like to sharpen it? Angle bevel??
  13. three way joint?

    Going over my head with "Is the juice worth the squeeze?"
  14. three way joint?

    Pete, my project will have a revolving top which will do nothing for creating ridgidety. I think the bracing and so forth for me will be an exercise in joinery practice as I don't build many larger projects.
  15. three way joint?

    Let these in on the front and back where they don't interfere with the tools turning.
