Here in Wyoming, we have quite a bit of beetle-kill pine, making it an inexpensive option for project builds.
While cutting out damaged molding in my home using my oscillating multi-tool, the tool’s blades began to dull. I decided to resharpen them.
Routing small workpieces doesn’t have to be dangerous or difficult.
The unwieldy nature of sheet goods makes cutting them a clumsy operation.
When making replacement zero-clearance inserts for my tablesaw, I found that, when equipped with a standard 10" blade, my tablesaw couldn’t lower the blade far enough to make the initial cut in the inserts.
When my old gas barbecue grill stopped working, I stripped the frame and turned it into a rolling mitersaw stand.
After gluing spline stock into the mitered corners of a large batch of frames, I was faced with spending the next half hour bandsawing away the protruding spline stock.
I place hardwood spacers matching the desired material thickness beneath my 15" stationary planer’s cutterhead assembly to gauge stock thickness when planing boards.
