    To make this cutting board, I first cut slim pieces of white birch and red oak using a table saw. Then, I glued them together. Next, after the glue was dry, I cut the board into slices again.

  10. Stumpy's Tubafore Contest Entry 2x4 Box

    After starting my first 2×4 box, I realized I was making many mistakes. I started my second 2×4 box shortly after starting the first. Each box is started by riping a 2×4 into 1/4 inch strips. This is lots of fun and makes lots of sawdust. I picked out the better strips and glued them together...

    Hello, How important is a Dust Collector (DC) clean out box (or bag) below a two stage DC? This is the box, bucket, or bag below a filter, that collects the fine particles, not collected in a cyclone or separator. I notice some DC's don't have them. I ask because I'm finishing building a...
