    Not sure if there's another thread like this, but I didn't see one in a brief search.

    Started getting into some woodworking recently. Currently building a miter saw stand so I don't have to keep using a damn card table.

    Anyone else?

    I enjoy some woodworking. Built a bookshelf, coffee table, and outdoor end table last year. Gonna do another end table, picnic table, and a new work bench next.

    And by picnic table, I don't mean the traditional all attached table bench thing. It's gonna be solid, benches will pull out, seat 8-10.

    Wish I had the time and space to do woodworking. Have my grandfathers old shop still has some tools... Maybe one day.

    The board is getting old- this, gardening, bees, chickens, pickling thread. I like it.

    Good stuff. I think my next project is going to be u-shaped built in bench on my landing upstairs. Debating including storage into the benches.

    I'd love to do something like that. Depending how long we stay in this house, I'll likely do some built in shelving in my man cave. Probably throw some big drawers in the bottom but drawers are a pain in the ass.

    Found a 4' wide burl in a spruce tree last year. Cut it down sliced it up into 4 inch slabs and let it dry out, now working on making them into tables.

    So the one thing I still don't have that I think I probably need is a nail gun. What are y'alls thoughts on that? I was thinking of just getting a finish nailer, but those shits get expensive.

    My wife found some wall mounted drying rack thing she wanted for the laundry room online in March. It was some where around $300 for 24"x36". I had to practically beg her to let me make her one that was actually usable. A couple of weeks later and about $150 in materials and you can fit almost 2 loads of clothes on this son of a bitch. 48"x60"

    Frame is pine, back is just 3/8" plywood bead board. The dowels are maple, I wanted oak for rigidity but I couldn't find any 48" oak anywhere around and I wanted to get it done before she bought one. I split a 1x4 pine board with my table saw then tacked and glued it to the back of the bead board to add extra strength as there wasn't much beef to hold it up on the wall especially with the weight from wet clothing.

    Finding dowels can be a pain in the ass. My wife wanted to build a tee-pee for my daughter, and I ended up using dowels that were probably 3/4'' wider than I would have liked, only because I couldn't find the thinner ones that were long enough.

    I have several "woodworking" hardware stores within a 30-40 minute drive, they all looked like I asked for gypsy tears when I wanted 48" oak dowels.

    You can pick up a moderately priced finish nailer pretty cheap. I bought a Bostitch finish nailer a ways back for about $100.

    I was this close to buying a ban saw a month or two ago but I was questioning when I would use it. I've already had 2 or 3 times where it would have been huge to just have one.

    I have a table saw, compound miter saw, drill press, plunge router w/ a table, scroll saw, jig saw, circular saw (corded and cordless), cordless drill, palm sander, belt sander, etc.

    We're putting on a master bedroom addition next year off the back of the house. My basement is a walk out in the back so it'll be a two-story addition. I told my wife she get's a walk in closet if the basement portion of the addition is a woodworking shop. I'm a little too excited about the opportunities for projects this will afford me. I might never be upstairs again.

    My great-grandfather built a lot of furniture that my family still uses:

    2 beds, a dresser, and a chest at my sisters
    1 bed, 2 chest of drawers, and a dining table at my parents home
    1 table and a chest in my house

    So, all of the stuff that I make is for my own little workshop or for hunting camp, or is given away because it's complete crap compared to his craftmanship

    I have a tool rental shop that is just outside my neighborhood and across the street. If I ever REALLY need something, it's pretty easy for me to just run over there and snag for pretty cheap.

    I had the kid at Home Depot crosscut the sheet of plywood I bought down the middle because I needed two 24'' pieces. Needless to say, he fucked up by about 5/8''. I had to modify all my plans to accommodate the change. :angry:

    I replaced the porch railing on my house last summer and being out there for 2-3 days with all my power tools out has significantly increased the number of neighbors dropping buy to say hi and oh by the way can I borrow your wet saw for a couple of days. I forgot I also own a wet saw too.

    I work in IT for a building materials supplier and about 7 years ago we switched from carrying DeWalt to Bosch power tools which meant that they all went on clearance. Almost all of the big tools I own are DeWalt from this time period. In IT I have access to what locations had what tools and how much we paid for them. Most of the ones I have were all purchased at 50% cost. I got the 12" table saw for $200.00, the compound miter was $125, and the palm sander was something stupid like $25. If I had to pay retail I wouldn't have half of what I do.

    Currently rebuilding a dock at a home I just bought. Took me two days to rebuild the walkway. I also murdered about 75 wasps in the process of tearing out the old lumber. Should take another two days to rebuild the platform and another day to do finish work. Dock builders wanted $3,500 to remove the decking and pilings and another $15,000+ to build a new one. Should have this project completed for less than $3,500.

    My first suggestion is to forget the 3/4" and 1" differences they use in the material's list and just go with 1" (actually 7/8") rough sawn cedar. It'll have 3 finished sides (aka squared off and rough sanded) and 1 face that is rough cut. It'll be cheaper and if you wanted to you can get a more rustic look by facing the rough side out. I wouldn't suggest doing so on the arm rest portion of chair unless you like splinters. Also see if you can get brass or stainless steel screws as regular galvanized or zinc coated ones will weep and discolor the cedar.

    Part of the reason I do a lot of DIY projects is just so I can justify buying a new power tool.

    I'm about to put up a new fence so I know I'm going to need an air compressor and paint gun to paint it with.

    Home Despot had a deal about a year ago for a nail gun, finish nail gun, a staple gun, and a small air compressor for $130. Name brand. Bought it and flipped the air compressor to one of my workers for $40 since I already had a bigger one. Pretty happy with my purchase so far
