Butcher Block Roubo Question - 8 replies

After puzzling over what to do with the 30 solid oak stair balusters I have in my garage (don’t ask), I had an idea: cut out the turned portion of each baluster to get two 3.5” square pieces (13” and 22” long), which I would glue together into a butcher block roubo bench top.

Since I don’t have a dedicated mortiser, I’m trying to decide whether to use the forstner bit and chisel method vs. using a spiral upcut bit in my router. It seems like the router method would leave less chisel clean up. A...

Another Dust Collection Question - 13 replies

Hello everyone. New to woodworking and making first post here. After reading about dust collection in posts here and on Bill Pentz’ blog, I understand that DC (particularly fine dust collection) is paramount in shop set up. I also have allergies, so inadequate DC could quickly ruin my new hobby. Since my shop is small (half a two car...
