    Hi, David., Phil Great advice. Brush Prairie is in Clark Co - down by Portland. I'll give a pest control agency a call this morning and see what they can do for me, and move the wood post haste!

  2. The wood was cheap - I'm paying the price now...help?

    So I'm always on the lookout for good wood deals. I found some fantastic Myrtle a couple of months ago - up to 16/4, some boards 15' long by 12" wide. Gorgeous grain and nice curl, some beautifully...
  3. Here's the link, then.

    Well, here's the link to the pictures of the build. If the mods remove this, I guess I expect it. Not sure what's ok to post anymore.

    Thanks for the comments!

  4. First commission pieces, first "original" designs

    Yeah, ok. So, they're not THAT original. Someone saw some photos on a website of a cutting board I did a few years ago and got in touch with me to make them an Entertainment center and a bookcase. We...

    So, I would tend to agree. But be warned, it's not as simple as pulling it out of the box and going to town with it. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago for a frame & panel open bookcase project...

    Gonna go out on a limb...

    Hey, guys. Gotta step out here and make a declaration. That's definitely cherry. Without a doubt.

    Not trying to be dismissive of the opinions - I'm by no means a domestic wood identifier, but I...

    Table saw

    Hey, John. If you have a tablesaw and a small miter sled (or you can make one for this task if necessary) you can make your own in a few minutes that's as accurate and easy as any commercially made...

    Thanks, Rod. No, I don't have a cutterhead like that, but it's on my list of things to keep an eye out for.

    I'll give some test pieces a shot with a 45 tilted backwards and see how it turns out!
  9. Hey, Glenn. Boy, I wish that was the solution....

    Hey, Glenn. Boy, I wish that was the solution. Unfortunately, I need the opposing angle - so I'd need to set my saw to 60 degrees tilt to get the effect I need.

    Maybe the angle I defined was...
  10. How do I safely cut a 60-degree bevel on a table top?

    So, I've got a couple of furniture tops for a customer and am having trouble deciding the easiest, safest way to cut the 60 degree bevel on the underside of the tops. 45, while easy to rout or shape...
  11. Hey, Rick. Welcome to the creek! And yeah,...

    Hey, Rick. Welcome to the creek!

    And yeah, that was the first thing I checked. It still moves freely, doesn't seem to be locked. I replied in another post a bit earlier - it's not locked now, but...
  12. Hey, that is, funny enough, EXACTLY what I saw in...

    Hey, that is, funny enough, EXACTLY what I saw in there before I started it up. Luckily, I read all 5 pages of the manual front to back before I fired it up. (Don't take away my man-card, I rarely...
  13. Oops. Well, that didn't take long.

    Hey, Dave. Great info. Both of those look like good starters, and not too much of an investment. I have a book ready to order from Amazon, as soon as I get the machine running.

    So, I wired it up...
  14. THANK you, John. I don't feel like a complete...

    THANK you, John. I don't feel like a complete idiot this go round, at least. I knew that had something to do with it?

    Turns out it is a 220 single phase. The plate is nearly impossible to see,...
  15. Found the voltage plate on the inside of the motor.

    Well. The manual and the seller both lied. :) I went to get some photos to answer some of your questions, and I find that if I use a flashlight and scrunch myself enough inside the base and use a...
  16. Well, it looks the right size to me. It's...

    Well, it looks the right size to me. It's half-again larger than the 3HP motor in the PM2000, and has large cooling fins all around the casing. I know there's something about the...(sorry, I'm an...
  17. I bought a shaper...sort of. Can you help?

    I responded to a local Craigslist ad this weekend and finally went out this evening to pick up a Woodtek HS7 "Tilting Arbor Moulder" from a cabinet shop for a few hundred bucks. Good deal, I think,...

    Another couple of points from me for this. I have the air version, too, and it was tremendous to frame together a shed. My wife and son could lay in those nails quickly, accurately, with no danger to...
  19. You know...that's not a bad idea at all. Of...

    You know...that's not a bad idea at all. Of course, I'll need some nice hardwood. And probably some nice sharp chisels. And, most likely, a new/sharp table saw blade. And, probably, knowing me, a new...
  20. Breathing new life into my cheap bar clamps

    I've been using these cheap bar clamps for several years and have been frustrated by something. The handles are too small and difficult for me to grip comfortably, and my wrist strength isn't what it...

    I won't go to the Portland show again

    So, Andrew. I went to it two years ago, and it was the last time for me.

    See the big thread here for my "experience" and others' reactions. Seems like most were in agreement, but YMMV.

    Good...

    Hey, Tim. I'm not sure I understand the challenge. Is there something wrong with your 8" Jet? Why would you downgrade to a 6"? If it's something like missing beds or...missing parts?

    As long as...
  23. Community Mailbox awning - any thoughts, guys?

    So, my neighborhood has had some mail stolen in the past couple of months, and we have agreed that we need a new commercial/community box unit - "CBU" for the neighborhood. But the rules are so...

    No mark on most things.

    BINGO! We have a winner, folks!

    I have one of the Rockler models that I used to use on nice pieces - my wife got it for me a couple of years ago.

    Unfortunately, I was at a charity auction a...

    Yup. Not many complaints.

    With a good blade, it will resaw through 12" of maple/purpleheart without a hiccup. No complaints severe enough to keep me from buying another. The blades take a little bit to change and align, (the...
