I make a lot of toys that require multiple axles and pegs cut to identical lengths.
For safety’s sake, I unplug woodworking machinery when not in use.
It’s a scary situation when a small cutoff catches a tablesaw or mitersaw blade and fires back at
Faced with the task of preparing multiple birdhouse parts, all with large drilled holes, I decided to create a shroud to contain and collect the inevitable tidal wave of sawdust.
Anytime I need to crosscut a short length of wood, such as a pen blank, I turn to the bandsaw for safe and controllable sawing, free of flying offcuts.
For convenience, cost-savings, and the ability to utilize uncommon wood species, I like to make my own button plugs.
