    Start by scribing a line all the way around the bottom using the table saw surface as a reference. Plane to the line.

    This can never work except for the gentlest of curves where the imperfect match just won't be noticable. My drawings not as pretty, but illustrates the problem with a more extreme curve. Line A...

    The bondo is only to create the pattern, which I use to actually make the actual piece.

    The problem here is that, mathematically speaking, there is no way to use the one side of the pattern to create a perfectly mating piece. The opposing curves will always change in varying ways...

    One of the first lessons learned was that no footwear was to expensive. My arsenal consist of high dollar loggers like Redwings and Danners along with quality hiking boots like Asolo. All are...

    I use both. The 3mm definitely provides more refined finish at any given grit. It definitely is slower. We reserve them for the final grit and sanding in between coats of finish. If I could only...

    I'm certain that the application choice has almost no bearing on the quality of the edge banding. I can buy the exact same quality edging from the same manufacturer with or without glue. I can also...

    It's shockingly hard to stop resin from finding it's easy to the floor. I don't do resin tables, but often use it to fill voids, and I always completely overdo containment. Nothing is worse than...

    The important factor is that your bushing and your bit have the correct differential of diameters. A .25" bit with a .5" bushing cuts the same hole as a .5" bit with a .75" bushing. The dimension of...

    Picked this up a few days back. Owner still had all the original paperwork. Check out that price. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get that much for it today, for a thirty year old machine.

    It's worth mentioning that any blade makes any cut well when it's fresh out of the packaging. The real test only comes when the teeth stop being razor sharp and the blades design starts carrying the...

    I've never bothered removing the table when moving a bandsaw. It would have been fine if I hadn't forgotten to strap it back down after a delivery. Something was going to eat that impact, a couple...

    The gloat that got away, kind of.

    Picked this little guy up for $30 off of FaceBook. The tensioner casting was broken, but it was in great shape outside of that. $11 part and it's back on service, right? Well, the drive home...

    I've had the Porter Cable, the black and Decker, and the Festool. They all suffer from the same problems, the corner of the abrasive is delicate and gets ripped off faster than a tourist in NYC and...

    You could do a tapered dovetail across the back. A task with a mallet would lock it in place. A tap from the opposite end would break it loose.
