Looking to upgrade Table Saw - 13 replies

Hello all, I am looking to upgrade my Craftsman 221240 Hybrid table saw. There is nothing wrong with the saw, but I recently saw a Powermatic 1000 for $700 and it got me thinking.

Repair help - 6 replies

Hello, I had a slight blowout when making my table. I had two spots that had a little shake damage (think that’s what it’s called) on the top 1/2” of two boards. I thought I could add a little glue and then the finish would hold it together. But I just couldn’t keep my hands off it. So my question is, can I just use...

Furniture Schools in my area - 5 replies

Hello everyone, I have been doing a lot of research on various furniture craftsmanship schools in my area (Philadelphia). I almost wish that I did not live in an area that had a few of them so it wasn’t so hard to choose from.
