    What do you do with your sawdust?

    I've been in the shop the last few nights milling some wood. I've filled 3 trash cans with chips from the plainer and jointer. While dumping the chips in the field behind my house I got to wondering what everyone else does. Do you bag it up and put it in the trash?

    tool gloat

    I was at Lowes last night shopping for plants with the wife. I happened to swing by the tools and noticed they had the Freud FT1702VCEK router on clearance for 129$. This originally sells for 199$. I couldn't pass it up.

    Plans for a charging station?

    Was wondering if anyone had some plans for a charing station. I'm looking from something to put on the counter to hide to cords for cell phones. Also maybe a drawer to put keys and wallets. I've tried to sketch a few in Sketchup but have not been overly pleased with the results.

    Ace hardware going out of business

    The Ace hardware in Rolesville is going out of business and items are up to 50% off. They don't carry many tools but they do have lots of...well hardware. They also carry a large selection of paint. Thought I would pass this along.

    Help setting up a PM2000

    I was able to follow the directions and get the saw together. However since this is my first "real" table saw I'm not sure how exact I need to get the part in-line. I put a straight edge to the table and it does not look perfect. This could be a result of the straight edge, saw-top or both...

    Finishes for Ash?

    Can anyone recomend a finish for Ash? I had thought about using India ink to dye it black but then decided I want more of a natural finish. Would you use BLO? Does anyone have any examples of natural finish on Ash?
