I hail from Round Rock TX and am joining this forum to gain insight into the finer points of woodworking. I am fairly new to big shop woodworking (beyond my scroll saw in my apt days) and now officially have the addiction full force (which my amazing wife lets me have BTW). I am moving beyond the butt joint/nail/glue stage of my journey and am embarking on the finer points of joinery/tool tuning and setup/and the million other things one must know before they make things that actually will span the test of time.

I look forward to the relationships i will establish from joining this site and for sure look forward to benefiting from all the years of experience that must reside from all its members. I am an artist and long time home do it yourselfer so have it in my blood naturally...i just do not have wood wisdom if you can call it that so i will need all the help i can get.

Thanks in advance to anyone that helps me in any way and hopefully it will not al be one sided. One last thing....God is great! Blessings to all!!!

Hello everyone…my first post so want to make it good. I have just purchased some Harbor Freight raised panel bits…and they work very well. I was able to create my stile and rail jigs so i will not waste time measuring for every time i use them so that battle is won. My question is around the actual raised panel bit. It does not come with back cutters as some of them do like the freud ones i have researched. From my research it is said that if you do not use a secondary pass on the back of the panel (back cut) it will sit “proud” in the groove and not fit correctly. Can someone shed some light as to what this means and if it is critical to “back cut” the raised panel when using HF panel bits. What is “sitting proud mean exactly and how will it effect the overall functionality of floating. Thanks very much for any insight you can provide.
