  1. Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't added to this in quite a while. Summer got super busy and the garage is about half finished. I have an 8 foot table that I've started and need to finish in the next couple weeks. After that, I'm all in on the garage project. One update I will share though. The 8-foot by 8-foot storage cabinet had to be cut down to a smaller width. I forgot to look up when I was making them. I have an attic access ladder that when dropped down into place landed right in the cabinet. Needless to say, there was quite a bit of swearing that day. It's all good now.
  2. The house was built in 1960, so I am sure there is a good chance it had asbestos. I'm trying to take extra care in this garage facelift. I want to do it right the first time and not have to redo it for many years.
  3. Wow! I never thought to check. I would get it checked, but i never thought about it and the painting portion is done. I will try to get progress pictures up here in the next couple days.
  4. yikes, I meant 8 foot by 8 foot. Nice catch.
  5. Hey guys, I just started a garage makeover project. We've lived in this house for the last 11 years, and I never properly set up the garage. It was fist a dumping ground of stuff until we got moved in. After that, I just tried to put things in there to fit instead of thinking functional. Ever since then, I've been coming up with ideas to increase storage, but never made it functional (adding workbenches and storage cabinets. I've finally had enough of that. Yesterday, I started taking everything out of the garage. I'm going to start over from scrat
  6. Awesome. Let me know if you have any questions along the way.
  7. I've made quite a few x-carve projects over the last 3 years and about a year ago, I started adding colored epoxy to my projects. I've really liked the results. Eric is a huge Cubs fan, so I went ahead and made him a custom Chicago Cubs X-carve project. He just received it yesterday and seems to be pretty stoked. Since Epoxy can be a bit intimidating if you've never used it before, I went ahead and made a "How To" video to show how to use the x-carve and how to work with Epoxy.
  8. Hey guys. Sorry I've been away for so long. No good excuses, just got away from me. As many of you know, I'm now writing and creating videos for TIA. Sarah Listi (new writer) came up with an idea a little while back where between her and I, we are creating 5 simple projects for Mother's day. They are meant to be simple projects that can be done in a weekend. These are being rolled out one per week for 5 weeks. This week, (week 2) I created a tutorial article and video on how to make a stripped cutting board. I love making these items, and I can get them done in
  9. It is a bit pricey. I bought my Rockler unit for about $800, but I didn't some of the features the jet has. I'm not sure of the price shown is for all of the options or just for the basic setup. I am assuming its for everything.
  10. The new JET Router Table features a cast iron or MDF table top, precision router lift, fence system with feather board and flip top add-ons, easily transportable rolling stand, and multiple dust collection features.

  11. JET’s new 10 in. ProShop™ Table Saw is loaded with features usually reserved for higher-end saws. Woodworking shop owners and enthusiasts can choose from the standard 30 in. or upgrade to the 52 in. rip fence and select cast iron or stamped steel extension wings. The saw’s interior has an improved blade shroud surround to improve dust collection capabilities. A convenient, oversized magnetic paddle “off” switch is employed for safe operation. The motor’s reset switch has been conveniently relocated to next to the saw’s power switch as well. The JET ProShop saw is powered by a 1-3/
  12. Here is a photo of the mobile base. It looks really well made.
  13. I've had the same issues with the besseys. I think it has a lot to do with the grooves they cut in the bar to help the jaws bite in. I bought a couple Jorgensens right before they went out of business and I really like them. I haven't tried the Jet clamps yet.
  14. Oh man, I just thought of another thing. Parallel Clamps. I use them all of the time. I've got Bessey Revo clamps and some Jorgensens. Unfortunately, Jorgensen went out of business recently. As a matter of fact, I just noticed today that Bessey has come out with a new set of parallel clamps. They improved on their K Body Revo clamps and they are calling them the K Body REVOlution. I don't believe they are available yet, but when they are, I am getting some for sure. http://kbodyrevolution.besseytools.com/
