    A table saw infeed table

    These can be quite handy when the need to cut long stock or cross cutting of pieces using the miter gauge that are wider than the space between your saw blade and the front edge of your saw requires that the miter gauge head needs to overhang the front of your saw.

    Something has changed. Is it my computer or the website?

    All of a sudden every page on the forum that I open is huge. Like so big that I can't see much of it at a time, and what I am typing now has 1/2" high characters on the screen of my laptop. If I move it to my 50" monitor, it is like looking at a billboard on a highway. I'm not this old to need...

I recently realized that I hadn't posted it, so here it is. The table is just a piece of 3/4...

    Horse Barn

    Some years ago I built this toy horse barn for my grand daughter. The agreement was that I would build it if she and her mom would paint it. It was mostly built from Baltic Birch plywood with poplar being used for most of the trim. The roofs were grooved via shallow cuts on my table saw to...

    A Few Tote Bins For My Smaller Size Shop Production Projects

    I made 12 of these from 10mm Baltic Birch to use in my shop . A cabinet shop near me has a huge pile of 1' X 5' drops from some large project they are making, so are selling these for $0.50/ft or $2.50 each. I picked up 30 and will likely be going back soon for more, since I've used a bunch of...

    I almost joined the Hereafter

    Last Sunday night 4/17 I began realizing that I was having some chest pains at about bed time. All I had been doing for several hours before was watching TV. I took a nitro pill and then 15 minutes later I took another. Then I had my wife take me to the hospital (about 3 miles away). The pain...
