New to the forum from Fremont, CA
Hi, my name is Bert and I woodwork as a hobby... in Fremont, CA a suburb of San Francisco Bay Area
My shop is less than half of a two car garage.
Anyway, I have been interested in woodworking since I watched Norm on New Yankee, in the 90s... But didn't start making sawdust til a few years ago, 2005 when I started off building and selling a few poker tables, with a jig saw, then upgraded to a router.
I have 3 of the 4 primary big power tools;
a Delta contractor saw (bought new from Lowes on clearance, after buying and selling 2 other used saws and a benchtop),
a Grizzly 6" jointer (I bought for $25 on Craigslist and just light rust on the tables),
and a Rigid 13" 4550 planer from HD ,
I also have a benchtop drill press.
I have the tools but low on the materials or funds to make sawdust.
I have been going back and forth with what to make. It seems more like shop furniture is what I have been making with what few scraps I have.
I just found this forum through google, while searching for instructions on how to use a jointer. I seems to make it bow into the middle of the board.
