    A Timberframed Woodworking Shop - Build Thread

    Thread Starter: brent stanley

    This weekend I started working on what will be my new workshop. A 25x40 timberframe and plan on documenting it fairly thoroughly. If folks are interested, please let me know and I'd be happy to spend some time documenting it for folks here. Cheers, Brent

    The Hall of the Mountain King

    Thread Starter: Thomas Wilson

    My dream shop is beginning to become a real shop. We have a contract and schedule for delivery of the timber frame structure. The builder has permits for the utilities. He has begun clearing the lot. We should have the stakes in the ground today to mark the house and septic field. This is...

    Laser for Hobby use and stay under $2K budget

    Thread Starter: Todd Heide

    Not sure how I should title it, but complete NEWB with laser cutting. What I am looking to do is get a cutter to cut out the parts for some airplanes that we are planning to build. A friend of mine wants to scratch build an 1/8th scale B-17, and is working on drawing up all the parts. He would...

    Assembly table with MFT top?

    Thread Starter: Jon Snider

    Help identifying a thickness planer

    Thread Starter: Timothy Robinson

    Hey Creekers: I just acquired a massive-heavy thickness planer and cannot figure out what make it is. It was a school machine and the labeling is gone. Pictures follow... Can anyone help? The casting/stamp in the fourth pic is the only number I found on the thing.

    Need a new microwave

    Thread Starter: Dave Zellers

    After 30 years the only microwave we've ever owned just bit the dust. Started making a nasty noise and gave off a nasty electric burning smell. Just thought I'd inquire here to get some advice on brands and features. I doubt the boss would want to spend more that 250 bucks tops. I'm seeing...

    Dust Collection in Basement below Shop

    I agree that having that 2hp dust collector in that shop is insufficient, at least with my experience. My 5hp Clearvue cyclone does not have a 5- straight

    Something eating my wood-plank ceiling

    I don't use a drone. Just my eyes, and fingers, with a complicated setup with never a step off the ground without a safety.

    Surprise Lodger

    When my daughter was 5 or 6, she thought every brown spider she saw was a brown recluse. Then one day I explained the definition of “recluse” and she

    Given enough light cherry too will fade, and it doesn't take too long for walnut to lighten. Here are two pictures of our floor, maple with a walnut and
