    A neighbor left an old radio cabinet outside to weather and get rained on. When she moved away, I salvaged it for the hardwood, but my spouse turned it into a re-use, restoration project. It will be converted to store glass sheets for stained glass projects. The cabinet has a large hole in the...

    Newbie here. I am just starting out with SketchUp and am creating dados in a rectangular piece of wood in SketchUp. The problem I am having is that when I push down (using the push tool) to create the dado I can never get the depth exactly right. So I go to the measurement box and enter the...

    I bought an old house and I'm doing some updates. We removed some old carpeting from the main stair case and underneath are some old 2x4s. I decided to replace this old wood with some new oak treads and risers. After watching a ton of youtube demos, I start cutting up my pieces. I cut a...

    I want to make a 3/8 inch box joint jig for the table saw. I got out the Freud SD208S dado stack, and set it up for a 3/8 inch dado. According to the chart that came with the dado stack, the setup requires two blades and one chipper. Simple, huh? I made two test cuts in a 3/4 x 3/4 inch piece...

    I am making a torsion box using 3/4" plywood and overlapping the boards by cutting slots using my dado blades. In most instances, everything works great. I have run into a problem where the blades will not cut through a few of the boards. They stop and spin against the wood. Anyone have an...

    I'm building this floor to ceiling bookcase 3.5x2.4meters (sorry about the metrics scale guys, I'm Swedish) (This is just a sketch, not a blueprint. ignore the details, like how the red dividers popping up on the top shelf) I'm planning on: 1. Building the outer box first, and dadoing slots...

    I've never used a dado but see that as a new (wanna-be) woodworker I need to start. I have a project that requires a dado (translation: offers me an excuse to make a purchase) :smile: I see Freud sets for just under $100 and then a Freud dado for over $250. ??!! Without a working knowledge of...

    I used to have a dado jig a while back but got damaged and I never got around to building another. There were many times when I wish I would have had it but didn't when I really needed a dado in a project. So I finally got around to making myself a new one with some dado required projects...

    I have a 10" Craftsman table saw, and yesterday I bought a dado set. I put the dados on the arbor to make a 3/4" wide dado, and when I put the nut on to old the dados. The threads on the arbor only go half way through the nut. The question I want to know is this SAFE?

    I have a project that calls for a deep 2" x 3/8" wide dado cut in 1" thick stock. How much of this cut is safe to make at a time? At the center of the cut the blade will be fully enclosed by the stock. I know this can be done in small increments, but my concern is that repeated passes could...

    I went to check out a local harbor freight store last week and they had an 8" stack dado set on sale for $20 bucks First thing i noticed aside from the comically cheap packaging is warnings on the outer blades to not exceed 4500 RPM. My saw spins at 5000 rpm and so far so good. Aside from 2...

    Hi, I'm trying to build a little three shelf spice rack for my wife out of some scrap 1x4 pine that I have in the garage. Real simple design: two uprights, three shelves and some 1/4" birch ply for the back. Since I'm new to this, I thought I would try to cut some dadoes for the shelves to...

    This is the 5th one of these that I have made. Learned something each time. This is a solid ash lid (top and sides) and 3/4 ash LC plywood for the main body. The square corners are poplar. Yea I know, weird combination of wood... No hardware on the main body, just glue and a very tight press...
