    Dove Tail Question

    i've never used a router jig but if you are doing an entire kitchen, that seems like the way to go. maybe you can find a registration point somehow and shift it over to do your wide board. if you doing the case or a few drawers in a furniture project, handcut or some hybrid approach is kind of...

    Is a Byrd Shellix cutterhead worth the money?

    agree with 1 and 3 is the real selling point. you can go against the grain in a lot of cases. #2 i will disagree with. changing out the 3 indexed knives on the DW735 is easy. it just costs money to buy new knives or time to sharpen them. changing the segmented cutters can be quite a job. dust...

    Mother's day frame - cherry and paper cord

    Recent Projects: Key / Wallet Storage, Zebrawood Tissue box

    i had some african mahogany boards that were pretzel shaped so i came up with a small project to use them. i ripped the boards so that i had strips of rift sawn and strips of flat sawn. the rift sawn was turned into the sides and top and the less attractive flat was the bottom. found a nice...

    Case Dovetails on Long Piece

    while true there are less complicated ways to do most tasks, your question gets at the deeper qeustion....why be a woodworker at all? i can just go to pottery barn and buy it. i'm interested in making the best possible product and i'm willing to take on a challenge.

    Case Dovetails on Long Piece

    yes it has some room placement challenges. nice thing is that with the dresser right beside the mattress, really no need for a night stand. so we have left a walkway on the mattress side. however, this is for a 3 year old so i'm sure it may get placed in some illogical spots. the bed part is done.

    Case Dovetails on Long Piece

    i thought about maybe switching to doweled dividers so that would make putting the tails on the top necessary since i would have drop the top down. the sliding dovetails can kind of annoying.

    Case Dovetails on Long Piece

    i'm making a dresser that is going to be part of a modern child's bed. the piece will be 75 inches long (to match the length of the single mattress), 18 inches wide and about 18 inches tall. in short, a big rectangle. i would typically put the tails on the sides and pins on the top / bottom...

    Powermatic jointer

    same for me. i'd get rid of my helical head before i'd go back to 6 inch.

    Powermatic jointer

    how does the 8 inch with straight knives compare to the 6 inch with helical? those extra two inches are so nice. not totally pertinent but i have an old model 60A powermatic 8 inch jointer which i retrofitted with the byrd helical and she is a beauty!

    Belt Disc Sander

    the disc sander has positives and negatives. the circular motion means it sands faster on the outside vs inside. i think you'll find that disc sander doesnt help you very much. the vertical belt sander will probably be nice. CL has a sanders pretty regularly. i recently bought horizontal...

    HELICAL VS: SPIRAL CUTTER HEAD

    there is picture labeled powermatic...hard to see on that one. the pic with just a cutterhead not in a machine is helical. there are undoubtedly some misrepresentations / bad labeling from some manufacturers. Grizzly....the manufacturer mentioned at start of the post classifies cutterheads...
