    Finally got to do my own kitchen

    Hi everyone, I finally got around to remodeling my kitchen. I started building the cabinets the first week of July. We gutted the kitchen back to the studs. I hired out the Electrical, plumbing, drywall and painting. I did everything else (I forgot how much I hated tile work). The cabinets are...

    Finally got my Drill Press refurbed and running

    After quite a while this drill press that was made by my father (man in my OWWM avatar) during his college years (1940's) is back up in running. Still needs to have the belt/pulleys sorted. Without rebuilding the chuck the runout was 0.008", good enough for my wooddorking projects. The...

    I finally found one

    I'm here in southern IL, yesterday I was walking along a creek bed at my sons and there it was, fallen over from the flood this spring, a big old box elder :) I grabbed my chainsaw and waded down into the creek to cut it loose from the rood ball. It has some really awesome streaks of red showing...

    Finally got a bandsaw

    Been looking for a decent bandsaw for quite a while and spotted a 16 in, 2hp, Grizzly G1073Z on Craigslist that looked like it would fill the bill. I went and looked at the saw and saw it run and it appeared nearly new, which was verified by the owner. Although it is a 2002 model that is no...

    Been a member for a while... finally posted

    I've met a few folks from the board when I buy/sell stuff locally and I'm pretty sure I've emailed a few regarding pens, etc. In any case figured it was time to come out of lurker mode and do some posting. I'm a newbie woodworker that got sucked into it through my hobby of building drums. I...

    Workbench and re-org, finally some progress

    So, I've had a large commercial door ala PhilS that I've been meaning to use to build a movable bench on a section of base cabinet from our kitchen remodel. I've been kicking around doing it and trying to move things around in my garshop to make room to build it much less use/store it. :roll...

    Finally it's Happening~!

    Hello NCWW's, I talked to the owner of the house I am renting and he finally said to go ahead with one of the electrician's bids. I called the electrician immediately after and he said he can get it installed this week, whenever the power company can come and turn off power to the...

    Dust Collector - Finally!

    Have been looking to upgrade dust collection in the shop from 4" to 6" pipe for 2-3 years, but have been too resourceful (cheap) to buy new. Yesterday, LOML got up wanting to do a day trip (200+ miles one-way) to IKEA in Charlotte, so before we struck out. I searched Cr**gslist for Charlotte &...

    Finally introducing myself :)

    Hi everyone, I am new to wood working, mostly focusing on turning bowls. We bought an older house just over 2 years ago and with it came a large shop. Of course when you buy an older home you need tools. My husband has a very can do attitude, and did a lot of carpentry work with his father in CA...

    Finally built a router table

    After many months of procrastination, I finally decided the time had come to build a router table. The lift is the new Jessum Router-Lift II. It works perfectly and the introductory price ($119.00) was a bargain. I drew up the plans in SketchUp but, like many home-made router tables, it ended up...

    I've not done much in the shop for the past year or so - started lots of stuff but haven't finished anything until recently (like last weekend!). Now, I am hoping to finish the conversion of two wall mounted box type shelves into a single free standing book shelf for my daughter's school...
