Man I hope I can get to be that good ! They are great and I am going To give it my best shot. I will send updates as I progress through making them. Thanks for getting back to me and I look forward to tips on my work from You.
Is there anyway that i can get some idea about the xbacked bar stools. i am taking carpentry classes and my wife likes these. i would like to make them for her dining room table. They would be perfect for her.
which peice did you want the price on,,, i charge based on my materail cost,, 4 to 5 times whatever the materails cost me,,, i get my wood alot cheap cause i use my local sawmill instead of lowe's but i have to dry it out and plane it my shelf too,, so i got all that time involved,, if you want to build nice furniture even for your self you are going to have to spend the money on the tools,,, the kreg jig is great but i only use it part of the time and in only place it can not be seen,, i also was regular woodworking skills to build my peices to,, but you will have to have more then one drill, i have over 8 and each has a different bit for different uses,, saves alot of time,, you will need circular saw, table saw, chop saw, plam sanders, belt sanders, more sanders, drill press, band saw, jig saw, routers and table and bits,, i have 5 router tables and they all have different bits so i don't have to change one everytime i need another style bit,,, a shaper for doing rasied panels and door styles, and their alot more etc,,, if you want to get in to the woodworking hobby it is not cheap,,
Yes, Ypu are right esp when they are handing you cash!! I was busting your chops. Can I ask how much you charged them? I'm 47 I've always wanted to learn how to build my own furniture and I saw the Kreg and though why not? I did not want to spend all the $ on the equip you would need to have without the Kreg.. I have no desire to sell I just want to build all my own I espically loved your chairs they are so cool and, Ypu really can't buy quality like that anymore.. Did you use the Mreg sys to build the set of chairs, the normal ones?
K3 problem the threaded insert is lose and will not hold setting. The k4 is worn and hard to use. I was think maybe epoxy the insert in place may fix it. I tried wood glue did hold. Anyone else had the same problem? The k4 I have thought about…Continue
I'm thinking about getting the Kreg Miter Gauge instead of building a sled for my table saw. I figure the miter gauge would have more uses and since the stock will ride on the saw table there is no drop off like with some crosscut sleds. And it…Continue
I'm having trouble getting my pocket holes deep enough. I'm using the kreg j4 system and using 3/4" stock 1 1/2" wide. I have set my jig to 3/4" high for the stock and set my drill bit to 3/4" to the tip. I'm pretty new at using this and I thought I…Continue
I really like the Adaptive Cutting System (ACS) and hope to buy it soon. My table saw really scares me as I have a bad knee that likes to buckle on me at inopportune times. I can just picture it happening at the table saw and tossing me into the saw…Continue
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.
