These items were purchased at various times over the past couple weeks and I of course misplaced my receipts. Meaning they got washed,...

    Those proud of their workshops, please post pics!

    Thread Starter: Matt Lau

    I'll finally be non-nomadic, and I'd like to finally build up a workshop. Before I get started, I'd love to get ideas. I'd love to see how you do things, and how you do things differently with all the disciplines here: tuners, neanders, power tool users, festoolies, etc. For those of you who...

    Dust collection barrel

    Thread Starter: Carl Beckett

    What is everyone using for a dust collection barrel? I have a heavy duty plastic trash can I put a gasket on. But it 'implodes' at times.

    Two Year Old Camaster Stinger III

    Thread Starter: Ronald Blue

    I have a locally available Camaster Stinger III. It's a 4 X 8 machine with a three head setup. Whats the benefit of the three head arrangement? Is it an alternative to an ATC system?

    Do you have woodworking knowledge you're just dying to share?
    Want to be an author at Sawmill Creek?

    Now you have a new area to publish articles!

    If you want to publish an article, you can join our authors group, which gives you access to a forum which is open only to would-be authors at SawmillCreek. This is a staging area for new articles, where you can post a new article, and we'll review for publication. Once you're ready to publish it, we'll promote it on the front page of SawmillCreek!


    The process is simple:

    1. Join the Authors group by visiting this page.
    2. Once you have access, visit the Authors forum.
    3. Start your article by creating a new thread in that forum.


    TIPS

    If your article is too long for a single post, don't fret ! Spread your article over multiple posts, and we'll merge them together into a single post when the article is ready to be published.

    Try posting pictures inline for visual interest.

    Choose a catchy, yet descriptive title!

    Writer's Block?

    We're looking for tool reviews, woodworking tips, woodturning techniques, jigs and fixtures, finished projects step-by-step, finishing techniques, social woodworking experiences, and even good compilations of our existing thread topics.

    Good luck and Happy writing!
