The work process that you have is much the same for me, The only difference is i joint everything before doing a thickness run, possibly the thicknesser will do the same work if the boards are reasonable. I actually made a table from pallets it on the Kreg Site somewhere if you wanted to see just what sort of results you can get.
I currently subscribe to Woodsmith eTips and enjoy receiving their video tips and read tips. I’ve come across several over the past couple of years that have helped me in my shop and today’s tips included a simple low cost Moxon style vice that I think several of you may want to build.
Your work is pretty nice too, I like the computer desk you made. My wife wants me to build a coffee table and a couple of accent tables next and a friend of mine is giving me an old water bed that I am going to re-saw and re-purpose.
Excellent work, Jim! I've only done one large project thus far, but I can appreciate the fine work you do with flush fit doors and drawers. You've done a lot in your projects and it seems that you have got it down. Especially critical with a white finish.
I also appreciate that you (and others) put pics of the assembly processes of your projects on this site. It's a great way for us new woodworkers to learn new techniques.
You are welcome. I really enjoy my jig and I make a point to show it to everyone that visits my home. I'm just starting to build my garage shop and have incorporated it into my one wall bench first that way I can use it to build the rest of the shop.
