  1. Good morning to all the mothers out there. I'm in the market to buy a set of these bits, I'm leaning towards the Whiteside 470 set but was looking to see if there was any others that might be good as well? Any special place to buy to get a good deal would be really appreciated. Pat

    Sliding Router Table Upgrade

    Probably tough on the impeller, but at least it got lubricated. Great job on the upgrades, why did you cut out the bottom of the router box, to get in fresh air??

    These are some of the collection of reference pics I've saved over the years to build for my railroad modeling.

    Blue Bird House

    All we seem to get is finches and crackles, all the pretty ones come to the feeders my wife puts out but don't go into any of the houses I've build. This one has about 10 finches in it.

    Garage Doors

    Guys, I have been asked to build a set of swinging garage doors. They will be painted so besides something like cedar or white oak, what choices of lumber would hold up better/best. Of course MONEY is a deterrent, but the opening is a custom size and won't fit a standard door. The existing doors were just glued and nailed from the back, I'm thinking of doing tongue and groove between the boards before glue and adding the bracing?? Thanks for any input.

    rubber wood??

    A friend showed me a picture the other day for an angled shelf which was made from "solid rubber wood". Where exactly does this stuff come from and where does it fall on the hardness scale. No wonder when you tell someone that the price of the wood will be higher than the cost of a "finished" piece they think you're ripping them off.
  8. Can't post my work yet as it is a present my son is giving this weekend. SWMBO asked for a couple of frames and am working on those right now.

    I really like this piece is it a pattern you could share? We have a GS who resembles this very much. Great job and very generous, hope it brings you a ton more work.

    Curly Maple Corner Cabinet with Pendant Shelves

    A great take on a utility piece. The figure is spectacular, the contrast really works. Can I ask where you got the hardware (hinges)

    I see, that looks like a good way to make them. I'm guessing you have a really good miter gauge or a way to verify the 45?

    Herb, could you show me the set up you would use on the table saw to cut diamond shapes?

    Been dizzy for a really long time now. I used some drawn guidelines and stayed as close to them as I could.

    That's what I used as inspiration.

    Dave this is my set up now, but see how the piece gets trapped? From the vacuum ,air from the sawblade ... it seems to move just a little and causes the chipping.

    Latest project

    Thank you guys appreciate the props, I have to ask for a better way to make the diamond shaped pieces?? I did them on the miter saw and they came out pretty well but got chipping from the unsecured little piece vibrating around because it gets trapped inside the 45 degree stop. I have another project like this I'd like to make and hope there is a better way.

    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?

    table saw sled sizing

    The side of my TS is very flat If I get too much play I might add a "side" runner. Your help was very much appreciated we just do different things with our saws.

We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



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.
