Leg splitting

I am building an oak table with 3/4" aprons and 11/2" by 11/2' square legs with the apron and legs set flush. I used 11/4" fine thread screws and normal settings on hole drilling in the apron. i got splits while driving the screws on 3 out of 4 legs. This happened on the screws nearest the leg end but my setback followed guidelines from Kreg. Any suggestions?

St. Paul Winter Carnival Chest

The word went out and they tried to recruit as many paintball players as possible.



Well, on both occasions, I couldn't make the events. I felt bad, leaving her to deal with… Continue

Woodburning Made Easy

I get a lot of members on this site asking me about how I incorporate woodburning to my projects. The people at Kreg Jig even suggested I make a blog post on here. So, after completing a woodburning project last night in my garage, I thought I’d take that opportunity to take photos and describe how I do it.



This first picture denotes my surface. I chose to do a smaller version of the hope chest as a donation item for a silent auction. This chest will measure roughly 24 inches long,… Continue

I am having issues cutting cedar plugs, they are too loose, too short and rough. When I read the online advice and forums they suggested using a higher speed drill. I went and got a corded drill to get better speed to cut smoother plugs. I thought…Continue
