"Joseph H , I was told by a furniture maker the ideal angle for a chair back is eleven degrees . A simple way to achieve this is to use a wider piece of stock for the rear leg and back support mark out your leg and back angle cut out on a band…"
"Love the look of this table...Wow...the finish is superb... I was wondering if you used Polyerathane or Lacquer for your finish...and any tips on how you applied it would be appreciated.
Thanks, Manny Felix
Great and beautiful cabinet - did you design and plan it yourself or find the plan somewhere? I am just beginning work with my Kreg jig and want to build a Hoosier style cabinet but can't find plans anywhere and am not confident…"
"thanks woody~~ don't have plan's,, simple math~ I made a jig and cut and sanded my pieces and placed them in the jig to put togetheir and to also for the chair to stay square~~ I been around woodworking my whole life so I get a…"
Looks like if you stand up a kid in it, and place it in front of the sink to do the dishes, that can't escape.
It appears to have a pull-out adjustable shelf/standing platform, so as to suffice for a kids height."
"I don't think I understand what this is supposed to do? Is the kid supposed to stand in it to reach counter height or is the kid supposed to use what looks like a pullout cutting board on the side?
The finish is beautiful, by the way."
"Any chance we can get some basic dimensions? I can see in your other project photos how you make the panels separately but can't figure out how you construct the "box". Did you glue the lid or buy a solid piece? I…"
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?
