Farm Table/Bench/Chairs

This was my first attempt at making chairs and they turned out pretty good. I bought an unassembled chair online and used it as a full size template for the back legs, then modified the rest of the chair to how I wanted it. All legs were turned on…

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino.       I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs.  I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled tenons etc., the time it takes me is ungodly.  Having made quite a few farmhouse tables and benches for clients, it only seemed like good business to offer chairs vs. buying unfinished chairs to finish to match, but in order to make money I need to be able to make them…See More

Hopefully this will help others, finishing has been one of the things that I have struggled through the years and I have a few tips that would hopefully help others.-Shining a flashlight on your project with all the lights off in your workshop will show you every flaw in your piece prior to finish.  wiping your project with mineral spirits, especially with walnut and cherry will show you any glue that was missed.-Vacuum and wipe your piece prior to finish, spraying compressed air could get some…See More

Kreg Foreman

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.

The only complaints that I have seen is that the base is molded plastic, but at a $400 price-point ($360 with a coupon from Acme), it's $700 cheaper than any other pocket hole machine you can find.

Dust collection when hooked to a Vac is…

Supermax 19-38 Drum Sander

I received the SuperMax 19-38 "open end" drum sander about 3 weeks ago before starting my latest kitchen.  I ordered it through Acme Tools, shipping was great, machine was packaged very well and arrived on time.  I have not used the Jet/Performax sanders, but have seen them in local stores, this machine by far surpasses them in size and how it's machined.  This unit is extremely heavy and impressive.  I was a little leary in the 1 3/4 hp motor and how it would handle larger jobs, but it…

SawStop Professional 3HP/52" rip

Received the SawStop about a week ago and have used it enough that I think I can write a review.  First off, I bought this saw due to the safety aspect, my old saw was a 3HP Shop Fox. 

The things I like about the saw:

-Dust collection is better than my previous saw, the blade is encased in a…

Hi Justin, I just got around to a little maintence on my D C the bags you told me about sure made it easier than trying to empty and reuse the old bag. Thanks again

Thanks Justin, I don't know why I didn't think of amazon, I always look there no matter what I'm buying.

Merry Christmas to you and yours too.

Hi Justin, I know you used to own a Harbor Freight dust collector, did you ever find the need to change the bottom bag? and if you did where did you get it from,

Thanks, Ray

Hey Leslee, thanks for that.  It's funny that it was such an easy project, but it was the wood that sets it off.  I'm going to be adding an addition to my garage this summer to give myself a little more room too.  I'm looking forward to your projects!

 I really like your table, Justin. I like curly maple it is a beautiful piece of wood.  Your table is a work of art with the curly maple top. That side table will look really good in any room you made it. It would probably enhance other pieces in the room.

 I sure love that table you did. Really fine piece of work. Hopefully, I too could put some nice stuff out sometime next summer. Right now, I'm trying to finish on my big rebuild of my shed/shop.
