"You could make something like this. http://www.woodsmithshop.com/download/412/multipurpose-shop-cart.pdf  Instead of the sandwiched top, you could use simple MDF and just modify the framing so you didn't have to cut dado's, rabbets,…"

"Lou, I used just the 3 screws on each end and the ledger holds the back of the shelf up with a couple wood screws.  Here's a pic of how they turned out.  My wife decided she wanted to start loading up the shelves already.…"

"Not a rip cutter per se but a straight edge guide made from the factory edges of a 4x8 sheet of MDF.  I made a 4' and 8' guide for ripping down panels. [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7187/6906202743_2ee120967b.jpg[/img]"

Heath Jenkins replied to justin waldron's discussion 'Track Saw Input'
"Is the only advantage of a tracksaw the straight edge?  I don't feel like spending the $$$ on a setup but I did a simple circular saw guide out of 2 pieces of MDF sandwiched and glued then I cut a straight edge on it.  It rides along…"

"Hugh, A kitchen bandsaw, can come in handy--- like in cutting thru bone. Much easier than using a dull knife. A chop saw would make a bigger mess."

So I was bored today before work and decided to create a jig I could use to produce my own plugs.It's a sled design that I will use on my bandsaw.  Took a little tweaking to get the angles where they needed to be and make sure the plug was long enough so it was above the surface and able to be sanded down.So I cut it to length first then flip the dowel around to the right and insert it to the stop and repeat.…See More

"I was lucky enough to pick up a Rigid 14" bandsaw at a woodworking show.  It was a demo unit that they didn't want to pack up for the trip home. I got it and the product they were selling for $350 IIRC.  Luck struck again when my…"

Cutlist and sheet goods

So I'm in the process of cutting up my pieces for my wifes built in library/bookshelf.  I am using SketchUp with the Cutlist plugin.  I knew the way my shelving was laid out that that I would not be able to get 4 12" deep shelves out of a 48" wide sheet because of the kerf of my blade.  I figured my shelves out to 11.75".How can I make Cutlist understand this? It seems to be fine on the board side of the drawing but not the sheet goods. See More
