Making Table legs from 4/4 Lumber question - 14 replies

I’m going to make some legs that are 2.5” thick (and also 2.5” wide). I’ve got some 15/16” red oak for the project. There were no thicker boards in stock. Since this is my first time laminating, I’m debating how to best handle this. The boards I have are pretty flat, but I’m figuring I’ll need...

Dewalt 735 Planer set up question - 19 replies

I just got a Dewalt 735 planer. The one I got was the kit that is sold with the extension tables and an extra set of blades. This is my first planer and the directions were not very detailed on how to fine tune the machine. In fact, there was almost nothing in there except for how to assemble it and turn it on. I attached the extension ta...

Bench Jointer reccommendations - 2 replies

I got so much good advice on portable table saws, I thought I’d ask about another tool I need soon…bench jointer. I don’t have the space for a floor standing, so much like the table saw I’m looking for a smaller table sized unit. I have seen the shop-fox, porter cable and Steel City. The local woodworking shop has th...

Portable table saws...whats best? - 11 replies

I am doing some research on a table saw. I have to have portable tools since I have to fold it all up and put it away in the house or garage at the end of the day. So I’m looking at some of the smaller ones, in the class you see at the big box stores. So for those of you with direct experience in that class of saw..what’s the best...
