1. Reason for This Buil
Here’s how this build came about.
Mike, a friend of mine at work, asked if I could build him two cornhole boxes. I said sure, and he commissioned me to build him two cornhole boxes.
And I thought, you know Mike might like to see (or maybe not) what was involved in the building of his cornhole boxes. And also, I felt that there might be others who would be interested in seeing some of the particulars involved in building a cornhole box.
I finally got a look at my buddy Terry’s new Grizzly G0715P table saw. Now, I only had time to look at it briefly during my lunch break at work. But I liked what I saw.
Don’t get me wrong. My Grizzly 17” band saw (model GO513ANV) has performed well and been a pleasure to use. However, I wish Grizzly had used socket screws instead of thumb screws (shown in Photo 1) for adjusting the blade guides.
Before getting started, here are two photos of the belt sander.
Personally, when I open a book, for the first time, the table of contents is the first place I go to. So you know where I am headed.
The table of contents shows this book, by Chris Schwarz, to be made up of twenty-one chapters and six appendices.
Chapter one starts on page one and chapter twenty-one ends on page 381.
The twenty-one chapters are titled as follows:
I have a DeWalt DW618 router (router motor unit). This router comes with both a fixed based (DW6184) and also a plunge base (DW6182). And the router motor is a separate unit, which you then attach to either the fixed base or the plunge base.
This is going to be a short post, but some useful information (I think anyway).
Now I have heard of using water on end grain prior to planing with a handplane. However, what with being concerned with tear-out, I shy away from using a handplane on end grain.
So instead of using a handplane, I use a random orbital sander (ROS). It tends to be slow going, but no tear-out worries. Then, it dawned on me. Why not wet the end grain with water? And then go to town on it with my ROS. I wonder if that would work? Well, it does.
I would guesstimate that it cut my sanding time in half. Plus, surely it is cutting down on the amount of sawdust going airborne.
Why in the world did I not think of this before?
Give it a try.
