Workbench Top question - 12 replies

I want to build a split top Roubo bench. I plan on using Douglas Fir. My question is, would I be better to laminate the top in the usual fashion or would it be better to have a solid chunk of wood that is 4” thick x 12” wide? It would certainly be less work that way. Are there disadvantages to a solid piece like that?

I have all the tools to do it either way (except for a large sander) I know this foru...

Crosscut sled design - 13 replies

I am desperately trying to find a link to a crosscut sled design/build video that I saw on a forum about 6 months ago. I have searched extensively to no avail. The owner built himself a sled that would do dado cuts, bevel cuts and 90 degree cuts, all on one sled. It has an adjustable front fence that has five bolts holding it in place. The right...

I need some input on a table saw decision - 4 replies

I bought a Ridgid R4512 a couple of years ago after reading some very positive reviews online and got it at Big Orange with their 20% off sale so I think it was about $500 give or take. I soon ran into the limitations of this type of saw when I tried to tune it up. Between that and a crappy fence I have been longing for a cabinet saw for a while...

what model of used jointer and planer to get - 6 replies

My first post here. I am hoping to pick up some good used equipment. I want to find a good used jointer and a good used planer. From what I have read, it seems that I am better off with separate machines. I’d really like to get this right the first time as I hate buying stuff twice. I’m thinking an 8” jointer and a 13” pl...
