Hi Charles,
Thanks, I'm glad you like it. It's my first scroll saw project.
Gray wolf is cut from a pattern on my scroll saw then I put a piece of black poster board on the back to make it stand out. The only wood burning is the little nubs of whiskers.

Thanks so much for the kind words, they mean a lot. I have a porter cable biscuit jointer, and I have had it for 5 or 6 years. I'm not exactly sure of the model, but woodcraft sells something that, if not exactly what I have, is very very similar for $219.00.

I really like using my biscuit jointer, it does a very nice job and I feel it is a VERY safe tool to use.

Best wishes, and take care.

Charles, I use a minwax paste wax. I actually went to Home Depot and was looking in the paing Isle and the guy came up and said "what do you need" and I said "wax for my tablesaw top" and he handed me a can. I'm still using that same can.

Charles, no, I don't sharpen my own blades, I have a guy that sharpens my saw blades and planer blades. Planer blades have 2 sides so I just changed a full set so I am on my 3rd side now in a little over a year? Not too bad I don't think, but at $55 a set it's just one of those things, at least there are 2 sides, $110 saw blade there's only one side. haha

Well, if you have a lumber yard I'm sure you could buy directly from them. Most of the time the lumber is kiln dried or air dried because it will be shipped off so it's not necessary to do anything else to it. There is a moisture meter that you can use to make sure the lumber is dry. The folks I get my lumber from don't really make their money from selling lumber, they make it in the moldings, doors and things like that so I'm ok with them. The closest sawmill is over an hour away from me. I would check around to find a sawmill out your way though. It will be rough sawn lumber and be prepared to eat some planer blades.

I actually have a local distributor within 10 miles of my house. They mill trimwork, flooring etc. and that's where I get all of my lumber from. They get their lumber straight from the mill and in a sense, yes, I do know somebody now, we have all become pretty good friends. A planer is a great tool to have, as well as the bandsaw and table saw. It seems to me you are well on your way. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions and if I can help with plans or designing I will. I'm in the middle of making cabinets for my kitchen, wish me tons of luck!! Haha! My new dust collector has kept it all tidy in the shop at least.

Product Reviews

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
