    Home Depot return policy change without notification

    Thread Starter: Michael Arruda

    Hello all, I had some small items left over from various things I've done around the house recently and decided to gather them up to take back to Home Depot. 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...

    Table Saw Questions

    Thread Starter: John McGovern

    Hi All, I've been lurking in the weeds for some time and have found this venue to be the most knowledgeable, helpful, and courteous forum on the block.

    3D Planning Software

    Thread Starter: Bennie Dempsey

    Hey all! I would like to start planning out my projects before I begin them, as I've heard that's a good habit to have. I can find a modeling program online pretty easily, but I wanted to see what you guys use. I am awful at hand drafting so paper and pencil isn't my go-to for personal projects....

    Jointer Safety

    Thread Starter: Tim M Tuttle

    I've been milling up a lot of white oak the past two nights. While I was using my jointer I started to ponder safety. For something like the table saw there are a lot of common safety procedures/dos/donts. A lot more than a jointer which makes sense as there are a lot more variables with the...

    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. Before I go messing with reinforcement, maybe I should just ditch it all together for something more suitable (ideally cheap and readily available locally). ...

    How many people here own a Festool Domino?

    Haven't really had any problems with handling the beast. It's not really something you normally have to handle in awkward positions, so if you are working

    Dedicated Table Router

    I thought hitachi and Triton were cheaper options for router tables. I never heard how they held up over the years with heavy usage...

    How to do these drawers?

    Nice, elegant piece. A few thoughts:

    What about slightly extending the top bead of the drawers to provide a fingerhold? Or maybe just a

    Dedicated Table Router

    A correction to my post above: Street price of the big Triton is about $250, not $350. Apologies for the typo.
