New Guy Table Saw

09-07-2015 01:18 AM by Endgrain123 | 14 comments »

Lots of great info on this blog! Hoping to get a little guidance here. I am new to woodworking after finding a stash of rough walnut in my Grandfather’s garage after he passed. At this point, all I want to do is build some end grain cutting boards as many of you have done. I have a planer, dust collector and jointer from cragslist that do a great job. All I need is a the table saw. I have very little invested in this and don’t want to spend a lot on table saw as there is a c...

It Starts With a Workbench #5: Get this thing off the ground... with a vengeance

Going to Woodworking School #1: The First Day of School

10-30-2009 08:27 PM by John Fleming | 3 comments »

Thursday, August 27, 2009 The First Day of School I don’t think I slept the night before the first day of Woodworking School. I had been waiting five years to do this, now it was actually going to happen. Maybe I was worried about going to school again after all these years, or I might just have been excited about the next phase of life. How many of us dream about the day we can do the things we want? My day to do that very thing has finally happened. To go back a few years five t...
