  1. My First Setback...

    Well it had to happen. Although, I did not expect it to happen on the first day.

    Let me explain. In my over-ambitious lust for a new project, I ignored the first rule of carpentry. "Measure twice, cut once." While I never got as far as the cutting stage before I realized a potentiel disaster, I will admit, for a couple of hours, I was at a loss on how to solve the dilema that unfolded as I drifted off to sleep.

    In my rush to get the MDF base glued up, I neglected ...

  2. Making the base.

    I realize that not everyone is fortunate enough to work in a shop where you have just about anything you could want tool-wise.

    That being said, I felt it was important to outline the steps that I will be using to make this project. As each step is completed, I will, with the help of other Creekers offer tips and suggestions to achieve the same results with different tools and skill levels.

    Since the base is about the most important aspect of any CNC machine I have ...

    Well here we go boys and girls. I have decided to take the plunge and build my own CNC Router. Bare with me through the coming months as I post my successes and my failures here.

    My plans are to adapt the best features from the 3 existing machines that we have in our shop to custom build a small CNC Router to cut custom small pieces in wood and plastic.

  4. Ridgid Jointer Replacement Blades

    RE: Ridgid 6 1/8 Jointer Model JP0101

    I am in need of replacing the cutter blades on the above Jointer, and have heard that this model has been dropped by Home Depot. I have also heard that the replacement blades from HD have not received rave reviews because of chipping.
    Does anyone have a good suggestion for replacement blades. I have seen some sources on the net, and they all ask for exact size. As a novice, I hate to take the blades out for measurement, and be out ...

  5. Building Humidor "V"

    The other day, started a [I][URL="http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?t=117154"]thread[/URL][/I] over in Woodworking Projects asking for some opinions on a humidor design. I thought I would make a blog of the build over here, since I don't have any blogs.

    I'm going to call this one Humidor "V"... as it is the fifth humidor I've made.

    After cutting in to the Morado, I reckoned that I wouldn't have enough to go with the original layout.... ...
