    planning on building soon

    I have the rare and awesome chance to build my own shop. I own a little less than an acre and my wife don't want it to be a huge obnoxious thing behind the house. I am thinking about the size of a 3 car garage should be big enough to put out some great woodwork and still not be overwhelming and...

    So, anyone planning a trip to Connecticut any time soon?

    I know this is a real big long shot, but I had to ask. Found a table saw for sale in Tolland, but I can't come up with a way to get enough time to go up there and get it. A pickup truck and of course gas money can be provided. :gar-Bi

    Planning a modular shave horse

    Kind of a multifunction affair. I know I've always said multipurpose tools serve no purpose well. But I think this is different. This will be a shop tool that has various modules that are interchangeable. It will be used for shaving tool handles, carving spoons, planing boards, sawing...

    New shop planning

    I have run out of room for new toys/tools. My current shop is under the deck and is only 12 x 40 with a 6'6" ceiling height. The area is fairly full of tools so I have to continually rearrange everything depending on the project. It is time to build a bigger shop. I have an area in the...

    Planning the dining table top

    I am at the planning stage for the dining table top and considering my options for creating the two 70" x 20" leaves. Am I being optimistic in hoping to find 16/4 x 12" curly/quilted, KD Maple?? The top is 35mm thick (1 1/2") it would have been nice to re-saw the 16/4 to get the width. If...

    Planning a Greater Raleigh Spring Shop Crawl

    Everyone: I have been knocking this idea around for awhile and have brought it up in a couple of threads. I would like to have a shop crawl in the greater Raleigh area (Wake Forest, Cary, Durham, etc.) I think we can do about 5 shops in one crawl. This is going to take a little planning, so...

    I am planning a project. It's a kitchen hutch for my wife for Xmas. I doubt I will have it done in time, but that is OK with the boss. This is to replace a metal bakers rack that holds our pots and pans. The LOML wants it painted, at first I refused, but then we looked at most kitchen hutches...
