    "Live edge lumber" musings

    Thread Starter: Jon Grider

    First, I do not wish to offend anyone, but I very well may and I apologize in advance if you are offended by my post. First rant is that I'm way over the "live edge furniture" movement. It floods the on line and Etsy/Pinterest type market and much of it imo cheapens the artistic, functional,...

    Table Saw Kickback

    Thread Starter: lowell holmes

    I just watched a video made by Kelly Mahler on table saw kickback. He had the saw blade extended to full height. I set my blade height at the thickness of the wood and use a push stick. I did cut my thumb one time and had to go to the emergency room. By limiting the height of the blade, you...

    Table Saw Kickback
