  1. Router Planing,Thicknessing Jig

    After wasting many hours trying to sand flat my last cutting board I decided to make a planning jig for the router so I can plane large boards accurately and not invest in a larger thicknessing machine. The hardwood ply 12mm/18mm cost £20 and the planed white wood was £10 with enough left over...
  2. Thicknesser Cart (My first post)

    I took up woodwork after a life changing injury and Lumberjocks was the main inspiration in the decision. It has taken me a while to get used to making things and this isn't perfect but it doesn't stop me being proud of it. I was gifted the thicknesser by a joiner in return for working on his...
  3. Few more end grain chopping boards

    Just a few more chopping boards that I've knocked out recently… I 've managed to vastly decrease the processing time due to finishing it off on the planer/thicknesser rather than sanding it down after final glue up. With just a fraction of a mm taken off with each pass there is barely any chip...

Connect a dust extractor and vent it outside? Thanks in advance for your thoughts. Another DW-735 Stand There are already...

  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I bought a used 735 with a shelix head. The guy I bought it from couldn't get it to start recently so he wanted to get rid of it. Apparently he changed the brushes and the new ones burned up in a matter of minutes. Then the machine turning on all together. I'm new to planers so excuse my...

    Dressing some burnt oak with my new planer/thicknesser I was given a bundle of strip oak by a friend. He dismantled an old whiskey cask and was going to give it to someone else for burning in their stove! When he told me this my face must have changed colour rapidly or something because he...

    New Space for Workshop After a long period of searching I've been able to find a space to rent. It's a bit big (170m2 or about 1830 square feet) for my needs but it will do more than fine. The price was logical and I team up with a friend woodworker to share the space and rent. We will be...

  14. Joinery
    I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to woodwork and really just starting to get into it. At the moment I am building a dining table from some old Rimu floor joists but I am having trouble with my jointer/thicknesser planer. I have a combination planer which I picked up cheap and I have...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am going to need a pretty large amount of birch and red oak plywood. Mostly the 3/4 variety. The big box stores are no less that $55 per sheet. Has anyone found a better source, where the veneer is high quality and the price is better than the norm? Thanks
