    2nd Build (first) - CNC Router

    Thread Starter: David Falkner

    Building my 2nd CNC first, I hope. I have been researching for over a year, read a thousand threads and articles, and am hopefully building my 'second machine' for my first. There is still a ton to learn and that process will probably never stop. Of this I am certain, I will be in new territory...

    My First Workbench Build - A Journal

    Thread Starter: Eric Schubert

    Welcome to my journal thread for my very first major build: a workbench! I plan to add photos and updates as I make progress on the bench build, which may or may not be frequently. It all depends on how it plays out. But, I'm hoping that it'll be a learning experience for both you and me, and...

    I was wrong, I likey tracksaw

    Thread Starter: julian abram

    In recent years I've read many of the threads bragging about various brands of tracksaws. I kind of poo-pooed folks in love with their track saws, just couldn't see the need. A good circular saw with a guide does everything a tracksaw can do, right? Well, I purchased a Dewalt tracksaw about a year...

    saw sharpening critique/input

    Thread Starter: Phil Mueller

    Pete gave me some good technique pointers in the saw file thread, so I went after a garage sale 10 pt rip saw to see what I could do. The teeth were in fairly bad shape with quite a few "low" and mishapend teeth. I ended up jointing it pretty agressively, then shaping as best I could. I aimed...

    The Floating Credenza - Build Thread

    Learning Corel Draw

    I bought Corel 7 and tried several times to self learn it, and went back to my QCAD program. Too complex - can't even connect lines. I'm sure I've overlooked

    Festool Track Saw TS 55 tear down video

    Festool Track Saw TS 55 tear down video by a guy who does not care for woodworking, but I think that his tear-down video is honest either way.
