Michael, I've heard that too. I have a jig saw already but not like a scroll saw. That cherry chest came out really nice! Great work. I have bunch of lumber here that I sawed up with a chainsaw jig and portable mill. Plan on making some stuff out of it too.

swweeet, nice stuff, I say god makes perfect stuff, we just have to find it. I wish I access to stuff like that. last year my girl bought me a compound miter for xmas and I told her to get the least expensive one and she did and I have no regrets because the saw is used periodicly and my table saw is a sears portable. remember all those beautiful antiques did not have the luxuries of todays woodworkers, get what your wallet allows and what your comfortable with. you will find your way, the wood seems to tell the woodworker what to do.

What I was saying was push the hot dog thru, not just hold it there. Just courious to see what the hot dog would look like in real world conditions.


They do push it through around the 1:30 mark and much faster than I would be pushing any wood through. It looks like it lost a little skin..... There's another one where they move it into the with hand later on but keep in mind this is super slow motion.

OK, now I see it, some times I can be slow :doh: :surrender: but still very impressive

I got the Bosch 4100-09 table saw guys. Looks great and very well thought out. One thing I have to say is the assembly instructions for the gravity cart are a joke. I finally just had to stare at it for a minute to figure it out. The gravity cart is very cool once assembled and opens and closes with ease but sheesh, can't someone write decent assembly instructions? :mad:

Congrats on the table saw purchase! Make sure you have a really good fence system and don't be afraid to spend some money on a miter gauge. As stated before you can make pretty much everything on your TS. You can even make the cove cut on cove molding!

I lucked out a few years back and got a nice used one time Grizzly 2HP contractor saw that has a nice accurate fence system and Incra miter gauge for about 1/3 the cost of a new set up. It has been a fun tooyl!

I have do a nice dewalt 12" miter saw that only rough cuts my furniture projects. The table saw is more accurate and stable so all finish cuts are done on it.

Good luck with it! Sounds like a good machine. I have an older craftsman (Circa 1960's) and it works good.

ALWAYS Be Careful! Everyone should watch this video..I have seen on all the woodworking sites...the guy is really lucky.!

Thanks for the tips guys. That video is scary and there's no way I want Kim to see that. She's already freaked enough when she saw it (No pun intended). She won't even touch the chain saw even when it's not running! ;) Titleist, That Incra gauge looks amazing. We'll see what I can produce taking my time and getting the feel for this unit and go from there. Most of my projects are home repair or outdoor/porch type furniture etc.. so fine finish isn't as important yet. Later I may tackle some tougher cabinate kitchen stuff. I'm trying out a "natural" finish for a distressed look on a porch end table that uses fine steel wool dissolved in vinegar and a strong black tea solution for putting tannins into pine or light colored softwood. It's a take on the "oxidized" look. We'll see how that goes. Here's some nice looking juniper I milled. Looking for ward to making something out of it.

I almost got it twice working on the new house, both on a radial arm saw that I've cut up enough wood on to build a few houses. I was ripping a very short piece of 2*4 on the 3/12 width knowing I shouldn't be doing that but I didn't have a band saw at the time , it whipped up and took my hat off and left a dent in the plaster ceiling. That's probably about the closest I ever came to to getting seriously hurt with power tools. Other time I was ripping a 8 foot piece of plywood and the cut was only 2 inches wide , the blade grabbed a hold of the piece after the cut was finished and it stuck in in the wall about 8 feet away like a spear. I've had that happen before on this saw but never at that speed, every time I make any cut like that on that saw in the back of mind is my Father warning me about it when I was a really young kid.

Fred, The distressed look is sort of the old and well used look and a good way to make cheap wood look cool. ;) Here's the beasty and an example of the "distressed look" using the black tea and steel wool dissolved in vinegar. Also believe it or not, there is good money in "distressing wood item like guitars in particular.

Ha,ha,ha,ha, yep I get a kick out of it too. You'd be amazed at what some people will pay to have a Fender Strat or P-bass that looks like it was on the road since the "60's". ;)

So YES, that would be primitive in my world ;) Old school would consist, among other things, taking a set of snow chains & gently yet methodically beating the hell out of your furniture piece. Also a good test for how sturdy you've made it. :clap: toothy I like the coat rack, and, the saw looks like it will do much for you--just remember--yiggy's--had a cabinet maker friend from Finland that used to refer to any jigs he made as yiggy's :D Have fun with it Steve. Here's some pieces I've made over the years.

I couldn't help but laugh when my Mother purchased that furniture. I said to her why didn't you just get regular new stuff, invite the Grandkids over and give them some sharp instruments to play with. LOL
