    Does anyone else here do any woodworking? I can use some tips.

      Took woodshop for 4 years in highschool. Built ramps for an entire skatepark. Built some top notch things for some businesses like counters and what not. I'm really into car audio so I do a ton of wood working with speaker boxes, fiberglassing, etc. I know a little bit. What do you need to know? lol

          Measure twice----cut once.
          Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

            I cut the board off twice and it's still too short.


            This is my next tool purchase.

              what do you need to know? Here are some random ones; make your own jigs if you can, keep an offcut bin, see if you can borrow specialty tols rather than buy them, get most of your tools at garage sales etc. it is cheaper, and before any project, square up your blades or at least double check to make ure they are square. Rough cut carpentry is ok without it some but anything fine is definately something you need to do. Also learn proper gluing techniques. it will save you time and headache. Number one thing is get used to wearing a mask. The fine dust can give you athsema according to the doc I went to when I started to have breathing problems. Buy a nice one, not the little crappy one use things. Also safety is the number one thing. Kickback sucks. Don't lose a finger and eye protection is a must.

                keep your saw dust and mix it with wood glue. makes a good filler of holes.

                  It's also good to soak up spilt liquids such as gas, oil, etc

                    You will not go wrong here my friend. One of the most used tools in my shop.

                      I use these quite often at work. We do a lot of trim work around doors and windows and the Kreg Jig makes it so easy and the joints dont spread. Definetly worth the money.

                        If you are using a dust collection system and you cut old wood with a nail in it or metal, in general, the metal shavings can ignite a pile of dust, even overnight. I disconnect my system anytime I cut metal.

                          Good tip.
                          Or get a spark arrestor.

                            How does that work? It all gets sucked into a 4" hose and the hot shaving can simmer in the wood dust, not sparks so much.

                              Kind of like a muffler with baffles. Some have a water bath.
