    While ripping a few boards today, I decided to make some set up blocks . I had a piece of 3/4 inch melamine coated shelving material (particle board core) so that is what I used.

    Hello all - I recently purchased 2 Chicago Electric routers. One of the bases has a 1.436" router opening, and the other has a 1.5" router opening.

    Hey guys, I got some purpleheart for a project and have been working with it. I resawed some 8/4 in half and after about a week of sitting around, there seems to be something seeping out of the growth rings on the freshly sawn face of the board. Looks like some sort of resin or sap or...

    When I overhauled my dust collection ductwork recently, I bit the bullet and added the Long Ranger Multigate Switch System. Part of the overhaul was to relocate the collector to a better overall position, but it ended up being a hike for some tools. I could use the exercise anyway, so saving a...
