    Hello all, This is my first post and my first attempt at woodworking. As such I only have limited tools, I don't have a workshop (I work in my apartment's balcony), and I have a limited budget. Because of the aforementioned, I started out with a jigsaw figuring that it would be a useful first...

    Three Questions- I didn't want to make separate threads. 1) I want to take some old church benches and make them into a workbench. Right now they have black paint on them.

I figured that for the top and bottom faces I could just trace a heart on the wood and then use a jigsaw to cut out the shape. However, I'm a bit puzzled on how to make the sides...

    My father very kindly picked me up a jigsaw (or is it jig saw) yesterday. To be honest, I'm not sure what to do with it. For cross cuts I use the miter saw. For rip cuts (however terrible) I use the circular saw. So what are the woodworking uses for a jigsaw? I'm sure they are legion...

    So I found this jigsaw in the garage. It belonged to my late grandpa and it's about 15 years old. The motor still runs strong, and cuts smoothly. The problem is that the scroller doesn't lock completely straight either, so I have to hold the saw itself slightly cock-eyed so the blade runs...

    I am learning how to build furniture and am on a budget. I am currently attempting to make some table legs out of 4x4s. I was given a Dremel 4000 to use for sanding and such, but as far as cutting I didn't have much. I went to Lowe's and the salesman recommended a Skil jigsaw with longer blades...
