    Hello, I’m building a library ladder for my office. I purchased 3/4inch x 4 inch white oak for the rungs. If dadoed into the 1 1/2 rails, will that safely hold a 200+ person or should I add decorative brackets supports as well? I know they have the metal rod supports that can go underneath but...

    Hello, to save some time while I build my own dining room table, we got a cheap one on FB. When we picked it up, they didn’t have either of the corner braces that connect to the legs under the table. Of course, this is dangerous if someone were to bump the end of the table, there are only bolts...

    I want to cut a slot in piece of alder so I can join a slanted piece sticking out of it, but I don't want to go all the way through. Is it safe to do a plunge cut on a table saw with an angled blade?

    Hello all, I needed to notch two 2x4s at both ends today. I thought about getting out the dado blades and spending the time to set them up, and then taking to time to make the several passes I would need, and then breaking the dado back down again. Then I thought, it would be a LOT easier and...

    Hi all, I am an armature hobbyist and keep getting hit in the face with wood shavings and other debris even with safety glasses and a shield. Does anyone have any recommendations for a face shield that seals close to the face with a dust mask or filter included? Does anyone have any...

    When I first started woodworking in high school, we were always taught the safety basics (wear eye/ear protection, don't have loose jewelry, hair, or clothing, etc.). So in my shop at home, I've kept to most of those. I always wear my shop apron and eye/ear protection, but I've also found that I...

    So I'm getting close to finishing restoring a Powermatic 65 table saw and turning my attention to inserts (throat plates), etc. I am researching splitters and riving knives. Prior to this, I've used a 1953 Craftsman contractor saw with neither with good success. But my ears are opened... I...

    I wonder why some enterprising lawyer hasn’t filed a class action suit against the various lathe chuck jaw manufacturers on behalf of all the turners that have been injured or suffered damage? I suppose most of the turners simply accept the inferior gripping of the jaws for what it is and when...

    I'm new here and a novice woodworker. I'm trying to find the best way to notch a 4x4 to insert a 2x4. The only tool I have is a sliding mitre saw with a depth stop. My questions are as follows: 1. Is it safe to do this? 2. Because the cut will not go all the way through the wood, do you let the...

    Please Help With Info Regarding Rengas Wood I know little to nothing about woodworking. I was hoping that someone with more knowledge and experience could give me some information regarding the use of Rengas wood. I've learned that it is a known irritant to the skin and unfortunately, I have...

    I ran across this link to the OSHA small business safety series for woodworking safety. https://www.osha.gov/Publications/woodworking_hazards/osha3157.html Interesting stuff. I like this one push block design, particularly.

    First post on this forum for me. Hope I'm in the right place! I'm just an amateur building a butler's pantry for my wife with raised panel cabinet doors. I'm using a big (2.5") raised panel bit (without back cutter) in my homemade router table. I have my vertical fence closed just short of...

    A few days ago had my first kickback on the tablesaw. I've heard plenty of stories of kickbacks, but none of them could have ever prepared me for how frightening it is. I was just ripping out a 15" wide piece of 1/4" ply and BANG! fortunately the only damage was a bruised bone in my pointer...
