  • Memorial Day

    Memorial Day This is not a day of celebration, this is not a day to say "Happy Memorial Day", as we often see the banners streaming across the door way of a big box store, or your car dealers lot, "Happy Memorial Day!". My friends, there is nothing happy about it. This day is not a happy occasion to celebrate. It is a day of solemn remembrance for those who gave their lives under the banner of our nation. I am taken back by the celebratory mood that surrounds one of the most profound annual

  • 75th Anniversary of D-Day (Saving Private Ryan Returns)

    The 75th Anniversary is almost here, and Saving Private Ryan is returning to the big screen to commemorate this very important event. One of the most memorable movies I have ever seen, and as my children grew I made sure they saw the movie as well. We'll go see this again, and this time on the big screen. The movie is returning this June 2nd through the 5th to theaters, see quote below and "Read More" to find out where it may be showing in your area.

    RTR lift location in table

    I've finally decided to make a router table, and incorporate a lift (probably Jessem Rout-R or Mast-R).  Most of the prefab router tables I see have the router centered on the table.  This would seem too waste a lot of the surface area behind the router bit.  What bit clearance do you have on your table, and would moving it back a bit improve the use?

    Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style? Do you like leaving your footprint of knowledge behind f

    • Save some labor
      Went to the big town this morning, got home about noon. Why not make more state puzzles. Only this time I printed out one pattern and made two puzzles...I nailed 2 1/4" bb plywoods together and cut them out in the same amount of time it takes to cut one out...I did use Scotch brand clear packing tape on the wood before I sprayed it with stickum. For the guys who uses Duck brand tape and you are getting all kinds of sticky stuff left on the wood that someone has to clean off then try Scotch Brand.

      I hope to revive this project this weekend. All the components have been cut, steamed, bent, shaped, and now I need to chop the mortises in the rear legs for the back slats.
