" I think kreg making a dust port adaptor for the kreg jig to go on a shop vac is a plus for the small shop guys or gals that have only a shop vac for taking care of saw dust and etc. I think that kreg is using its thinking cap to help the DIYer…"
"What a cool looking chair, Jim. It looks really nice and smooth; did you test it out yet, Jim?
Seeing a porch chair glider is different and I bet you will get buyers for that idea.
Thanks for sharing, Jim."
" Hi, Mick.
I like your shutters on your shop windows. I think that was a wise idea with the different weather we are having these days. I also think it adds some class to your shop as well. Thanks for sharing your project."
" Well, some of us do use the pocket jig for other uses like I used it to put up my uprights in my gable ends and my clearstory windows for that clean look. Kreg doesn't say use it in projects only. You could use any "Kreg"…"
" Hi, Amelia.
Welcome to the community. I would first look at the price that you could afford. I then look at all the different kinds of jigsaws and circular saws on the market. Go up on sites like sears.com there is all kinds of makes and…"
" I was going to make one from the old one I have in the back yard that is made of metal and wood. I do like your glider, Jim. You did a really nice job on it. I like the dowel covers on the arms that is really nice craftsmanship. I hope you get…"
"I used a scouring pad and a bottle of coke to clean the rust off of my old table saw. I scrubbed it down and rinsed the coke off the table deck and found a beautiful medal table. I scrubbed the whole table saw deck down with coke and then rinsed it…"
" I use 409 with a wire brush. I soak my saw blades for about 45mins. to hour. It cleans them really good. I would rinse the 409 off with water and dry then spray WD-40 on both sides of the blade. It works great and it did't cost too much.…"

"Hi, Jay. What a nice looking router table you made. I sure like the purple heart edging around it. It really makes it look sharp. You have a really good work horse in having a Triton router in your table. I hope I can build a great table for…"
" Hi, Mick.
Thank you for the comment on my Shed/Shop. I recycled most of my wood from my old 10x12 shed in this bigger one. Most of the walls were built with the recycle 2x4s from the old shed. The only thing that has new materials is…"
Hi Leslee , thank,s for nice comment on case , used Spanish Oak on this one and a lot of my other project,s , the guy did not want poly on this one and did have a lot of room to display a lot of thing,s , have a great day , JIM !!
Thanks for your input, Leslee. I will check, but at our location our county doesn't require building permits, although they are quick to put an evaluation on our property tax!
Our plan is to purchase a building that comes with the metal all cut and all the hardware, overhead door, walk out door and window included. We would like an overhang of the roof on one side to cover a porch area. We will hire one experienced carpenter who has put up a couple of barns for us. I am lucky in this, my husband, son, and neighbor are going to help the carpenter to keep costs at a minimum. I am buying 6 inch insulation from my brother, who overbought for his shop. That is all I have done for sure. Are you putting up a building for a wood shop? Did you have plans to install a dust collection system? There are so many things to consider, I am a bit overwhelmed. I am thankful for the carpenter we have, but he is open to new ideas too.
I hope your disability allows you to get your building up and functioning soon. It would be nice to have an area to work in this cold weather!
Hi Leslee , thank,s for the nice comment,s on my bench !!! I saw the basic plan on Lowes site and revised it to my own taste,s !! Right now I have one together , two half done , two more on the bench ready to go together and picked up an order for one more today, going to be making benches for awhile , HA! Have a good day , Jim !!
Hi Leslee, thanks for the nice comment,s on my Rocking Horse , I like making thing,s for the little one,s and love to see that smile on their face when they first see it , makes all that work worth while , have a good day , Jim !
Hi Leslee , Thank you very much for the comment on my chair , the oo1 picture is the one the guy sent me to see if I could make one like it , the 003 picture is the one that I made with a few changes to the boom - tool box and the colors !! I am sorry if I confused every one by posting both pictures , just wanted to show every one what I had to work with to make this chair , also posted my mistake on the main page !! sending you a pic. of the right one , have a great day , JIM !!!
Thanks Leslee for all of the Information. I will be checking out both of the websites. I'm not ready to build one just yet, but I'm always looking to get ideas. I will check out the information on the height for sure. I am 5'7 and don't usually have too much trouble with the height of the tables. This will definitely help me with making a decision. Lorrie
Thanks for the tip on train items at Rockler.com. Not only are the buildings of interest to me, but I found the router bits for building the tracks to be something I was in the market for. Greatly appreciate it Leslee! :)
Leslee , thank you for your comment on my clamps , It did take years to get them , but I can do a few projects at a time and you can never have to many clamps, have a great day and enjoy building your projects , JIM
