    Weird of her to insist you drink cheap champagne while you worked.

    I'd like to get into woodworking and feel building a cornhole set is a good project to start with. Anyone have any experience and tips building one?

    Use beefy hardware on your legs, and make them one piece with a crossmember.

    I want a to get a track saw. I’m terrified of my and all table saws. I’ve been on the receiving end of a few kickback injuries and narrowly missed getting taken out by a 4’ cherry missile. Anyway...

    I really like the dewalt flexvolt based on the videos I’ve watched. I have a lot of other dewalt cordless in that same family. I also like the kreg adaptive cutting system, which is corded. I trust the kreg guide, not so sure about the saw itself. This is a $400-900 investment.

    My current circular saw is a rescue black and decker that dates to 1976 or so based on internet research. It works fine, but it’s heavy as shit and the plate is not very versatile. For $79 Kreg had an accu-cut that basically turns your saw into a track saw. No plunge. Corded. No dust port for the vacuum.

    Decisions, decisions. Anyone have one?

    The first two were in high school. Older cabinet saw, no riving knife, guards or anything. Both really a product of being flippant about safety and thinking I could do anything with it. The last time was recently. My saw Was struggling to rip down a cherry table leg. I, already being terrified, panicked and moved to the side and let up a little in the process. It got up on the blade and took off.

    Out of curiosity, what other power tools you got besides a table and circular saw? If I had a do over, Id get a bandsaw before a table saw

    The 900 being the plunge/track/table? For that much money I would go with a festool and track and make my own table..

    Or find an old worm drive skilsaw and pair with the $79 track while eating saw dust.. edit saw weight might be a concern so dont go this route if so

    Losing fingers worries me moreso than kickback. Going to be pretty dope when sawstop's patents expire and everyone can copy their technology for a fraction of the price

    Never felt unsafe using the bandsaw, can do everything and more a table saw (resaw, curves) can do save for dados.

    My dad says he’s gonna give me his band saw so I’ve been holding off getting one but I don’t know when that’s gonna be and I really want one. I’d use it for so much.

    Putting up wainscoting in the family and dinning rooms of our new house. She wants it painted over staining it, hence the birch and poplar mix instead of oak. This panel is 2.5’ wide by 3’ tall. Used pocket screws on the rails and stiles. Everything else is face nailed. This was the first one so it took about 3 hours but a good 45 minutes of that was building the jig setup to produce the rest.

    The usual lineup. Job site table saw, drills, impact, sanders (belt, orbit, palm), biscuit joiner, nailers, sawz-all, jig saw, tabletop jigsaw, Dremel. Plus a lot of hand tools, saws, planes, etc.
    Router and thickness planer is on my list as the big holes in my lineup. Track saw seems like a good way to confidently make consistent cuts. Band saw sounds nice, but I don’t find myself thinking ‘damn, I wish I had a band saw right now.’ very often.

    My unsolicited advice......
    -set yourself up for success with the table saw, new combination blade, check fence for square (most common source of binding), and invest in a run out roller or table
    -remind yourself that the blade can't come get you, the only way you are cutting yourself is if you screw up your hand placement
    -should go without saying, but don't be flippant or in a hurry, that'll cost you fingers
    -practice. Get some drops, even plywood, and just turn them in to sawdust. Learn good habits, and the fears should go away. Keep the healthy respect.

    I have had exactly one close call with a table saw, and I hope I learned my lesson, as we use them daily.

    Thanks. It’s actually 4 different colors. The inset door pulls were probably the most challenging piece of hardware. Made a jig with a top bearing router bit.

    Truth.

    Did this trying to hurry with a chop saw. Stupid hand placement, the blade “popped” through the material I was cutting and slapped down on my hand. I knew right away I done fucked up. Drove about 100 on the way to the ER. Somehow managed to only cut skin and underlying what have you. No ligaments, nerve, or bone.

    I am getting Banquets like these built (except there is 4" kickback behind your foot). However I dont have a table top yet, how tough would that to build?

    Pretty straightforward. Personally, I’d do either:
    A. Slab - find a nice slab, level, cut to length, finish. This works if you find a slab of the width you want your table. Otherwise you’re cutting the live edges, which is the appeal to me. Though you can still cut the edges straight for a one-piece build.
    Or
    B. Hardwood 10 or 12 x 1. Thickness plane, biscuit join, clamp, glue, then add some bottom bracing. Cut to shape, router, sand, finish. Optionally, put a 6” frame around the outside of your planks.


    There are a thousand other ways to go about it, too.
