    George, the more I find out about you, the more I think you should be a beer spokesperson. You have got to be the most interesting man in the world. :)

    Christopher Schwarz made a Roubo-type bench with a thick slab of cherry for the top, and I thought it beautiful. Furniture for the workshop. Daniel, I'd be doing what you're doing, don't listen to...

    Thanks for all the replies, guys. Sounds like it's not as big a leap as I've feared it may be. I realized as I read through the replies that I could have shared a little more detail to focus the...

    Wow. A lot of opinion and a lot of aggression in this thread. I took the time to read through the whole thing, and I have to say - there are some real misconceptions flying around here, at least...
  5. Jointer question for the transitional neanderthal

    Okay, I admit it - I'm actually a transitional neanderthal, what with having a complement of power tools alongside my ATC full of hand tools. I enjoy the hand tools, but I'm slow with them, and...

    Bradley,

    Are you thinking a "dust right" sorta-cyclone lid on a can, or the Oneida dust deputy mini-cyclone? I would have thought the dust deputy highly restrictive to a DC, given the small...

    1HP DC blower recommendation?

    Hi, all -

    I'm looking to install a dust collector in the front corner of my garage shop. We rent, and there isn't a lot of electrical capacity in the garage - only two circuits, and no 220V - so...

    David, I can't see your belt in your photo, but that purple shirt...I'm going to have to agree with Bridger.

    My understanding is that BF measurements are nominal - before drying and surfacing.

    This is an old thread, I know, but I wanted to say thanks, Marko. I'm looking to start a bench build soon, and I'm trying to get the design finished before I buy everything (novel idea, right?). ...

    Harold, my understanding is the same, especially for yellow pine. I'm not so certain about doug fir, but the numbers show it to be slightly stiffer, slightly lighter, and about the same hardness -...

    Beautiful bench, Harold. Nice to see the construction grade wood being used so successfully. I've recently found a source of 4-by and 6-by doug fir and have been pondering a similar build, I think...

    Thanks, Alan. Perhaps I need to clarify - I used the shopvac/cyclone example as the equipment requiring highest air flow. If I can find something that will work for those pieces of equipment, I'm...

    Alan, "functional" to me means more than chip collection. I've not seen any real reviews on the DR, but my hope was that for a single machine within 5-10 feet, it would work acceptably. From the...

    John,

    Thanks for the thought. Laundry is on the second floor, and is gas - no 220V in the entire house. *sigh* Doesn't let me use the honkin' extension cord I built a couple of years ago to use...

    Hi, all -

    Moved to LV late last year and am finally getting around to getting the workshop set up. (Have to sell the aircraft project to have enough space, but I'm starting!) I have a couple of...

    Rich,

    Neat video. I'm familiar with the flash flooding in the area, but have never seen that video. Glad I wasn't down there!

    WRT rain for this, though, the school is actually located near...

    Dennis, those are what I meant by prefab footings. But given their heights, I'd need to dig down to keep the stage as low as possible. Given other thoughts, I'm thinking I'll pass on footings...

    Peter, you've made some good points, and have thoughts similar to my own at first. The desire to keep it as close to the ground as possible is to avoid the need for any steps. Building it like a...

    My experience echoes much of what's already been said - use dimensional lumber from the BORG. I used a couple of 2x6s to make mine, and it holds up fine. Didn't even bother to finish it with...
