    New shop build, the MBS

    Thread Starter: Jon Snider

    I’ve received some offline encouragement to post some content of my new shop build. If you’ve read any of my other numerous questions (thx all for invaluable help), I’ve been at this since last April. Here is an effort to slowly catch up.

    Is a 1.5 HP cyclone enough for my gargage shop?

    Thread Starter: Allan Speers

    Thread Starter: Axel de Pugey

As the angles were not correct to my liking I realised I was super careful to take off the minimum amount of metal possible. If these irons are finished/damaged I could potentially find replacements but it...

    How do you cut dovetails

    Thread Starter: Andrew Pitonyak

    I always cut tails first, it is how I learned and I still do it that way. When I first started cutting dovetails, the advice I received was that I should mark the board, then tilt the board so that I would do all of my cuts vertical. I did this for a long time. Eventually, I became impatient. I...

    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!
