"Debora, You could use pennies to help raise your pocket screw like a spacer. You could also drill a hole in the leg and the veritcal piece of wood. Then screw in a bolt with wood screw threads on one and bolt screw on the other. I seen it down on…"
The only thing I could say that made sure you are not distracted from the table saw while cutting. Always be watching what you are doing while sawing on the table saw. Keep your board against the fence. Always use the blade cover…"
" David, I think your drywall holder-upper was a good idea. I made a plywood holder for my osb to hold the sheet of osb on the edge of the roof so it would not slide off the roof. I was like you in the case of no one else to help with holding…"

" I think that the first tool should be the work horse of the bunch is the table saw. I also believe that if you don't own a table saw; have a skilsaw to start with. You should also have the important tool of clamps. Clamps are a very…"
"I have a router table top that I purcased from rockler, but in the future I would like to make my own router table. I think the best router table top I can imagine is made from 2 pcs of mdf 48''x48'' glued together with a…"

"Buy a melamine board from Home Depot or Lowes. They're cheap, dimensionally stable, and pre-covered with a surface that will allow boards to slide nicely past your router bit. They sell them thick enough that routing out a…"
Leslee, thank you for the nice comment. I will try to finish the kitchen soon as there is a few things to do yet like a custom 12 inch high crown molding, some trim around the windows and a microwave cabinet. Then there is the little trim pieces that need to be added. Right now I'm working on the bathroom cabinet part of the job but will arrive as the end one of these days. Thank again.
Leslee, hope things work out and you recover from the loss quickly. Thank you for the comment on the dresser. I hope to finish it soon just too many other things that are first in line. I only get to work on it some in the evenings if I am not too tired from the early to work and late to get home. Been home some this past week and so far some this week and have finished the chest part doing some bead work on the front of the chest. Stated the mirror frame and hope to finish it maybe this weekend but I have to wait and see.
Leslee, thank you and remember I am always willing to share any of my knowledge at any time. I'm serious about falling and stopping, I know I have had the experience many times, It does hurt. For safety, It's like this if you are ever on a roof make sure you have a air hose or a extension cordand hang onto it, as they are sure to get caught on something before you hit the ground. Seriously always work safe. Enjoy you construction day.
I do enjoy what I have built from scratch and as far as licorice I have it there on account I have two neighbor girls that come over and ask for some scrap wood so I tell them they have to sweep floor for the wood and then they take a few red ropes.
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
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! :)
