Cedar - 3 replies

Has anyone used cedar to scroll saw? My cousin has a great small business manufacturing bird houses/bat houses/bee boxes (welliver outdoors her out). Anyway, she’s offered me any of the scraps. All different sizes, but a lot of 6×6 or 8×8 pieces at 3/4 of an inch thick. Any negatives to scrolling this stuff? Not your typical deep red c...

Dust Collection - 9 replies

Looking for some ideas for dust collection. My shop currently is in half of a two car garage with extremely limited space. I have a table saw, liter saw, scroll saw, router and hope to get a band saw at some point. I’m currently using a shop vac with a small hose after the fact to keep things relatively clean. I want to start doing a little bett...

Finishing Advice - 10 replies

I bought a piece of cool looking spalted maple from a local “mountain man” selling slabs at an arts fest today. The price could not be beat and he and I ended up exchanging numbers as he had some great stuff. We are finishing our basement with a rustic theme and we want to use this as a coffee table. As you can see in the pictures, the slab is n...

Round Over Bit and then some - 3 replies

So I had been wanting a router, but wasn’t a need. I’d want it for doing some round overs, but until I was doing more I held off. In a nice stroke of luck, a co-workers husband works for Stanley B&D and after hearing me talk about it bought me a Dewalt 1.25HP Variable Spped Router (DWP611). Extremely gracious and will help my growing hobby s...

Brazilian Maple - 7 replies

Any of you all familiar with this wood? A neighbor of mine was getting rid of a bunch of flooring in that was Brazilians maple. I don’t think it’s ever seen a floor though. Was thinking about using it as a table top for an entry way table in making. Any thoughts about the species?

Outfeed Support - 14 replies

I finally have my hand me down Delta 10” contractor saw up and running. The one thing I’m concerned about is an outfeed. I’m on limited space in my garage so a full on outfeed table isn’t going to work. I was looking at one of the single stand roller outfeed, but the more I read, the more I see it as a hazard than a help. I came to find this Rig...

Planers - 5 replies

Hi all. New to the forums. Just moved into a home after being in a condo for 10 year and in negotiating my garage with my wife, I earned half for a shop. Relatively new to woodworking. Have made some smaller items in the past, but looking to do more furniture like work. Planer Question. Just picked up a small Stanley Handyman planer, a Sears Cra...
