Table with vinyl decals under epoxy - 12 replies

Has anyone done this? I see tables that are made like this. Well, I assume it is vinyl stickers under epoxy. I want to make some tables for our fire stations and I want to do it right. I’m thinking of a coat of either poly or epoxy and then the stickers on top of that, then the final coats of epoxy over that. Does that sound right or do you...

I found this jointer on CL. It’s hard to tell what is broken from the picture, but I’m guessing it needs a new cutter head and not just knives as the ad suggests. What do you see? Thanks.

Is this a maple? - 22 replies

This is on craigslist for free. It says it’s maple. If it is what kind do we think it is. I doubt it’s silver maple based on my experience, but it could be. It’s the most common around here. Bark just doesn’t look like it to me. What do you think?

Curling! - 20 replies

Ok, who’s from curling country. I love to watch it, but i hate to see the US do so poorly at it. I do understand that with teams like China the players have no other job but to curl all day, while our teams have full time jobs and are raising families. Maybe we need to improve our relations with Canada and learn more from them. Oh well...

My dust collector/separator - 6 replies

After a lot of looking at what other people have built and seeing what I could buy, I built this today.

Routers with lift integrated. - 27 replies

I would like to get a new router that I can dedicate to my table. I have looked at the Milwaukee and Triton 3 1/4 routers which have the feature that you can raise and lower from above the table.
