1. TY, I think this is what I am going to go with.

  2. 3070ti/3080. Or if you wanna jump to the 4000 series the 4070ti is a beast for the price.

  3. Regarding mineral oil, use food grade. And you can't use too much. Flood it, soak it, give it as much mineral oil as it will take. Your hard work will be rewarded.

  4. Please don't submerge it in the oil! Wipe on let it soak in, wipe on let it soak in, repeat until all sides have absorbed all it will take.

  5. You need a miter saw box, lean the stock at the 30 degree angle and cut on the 45.

  6. Okay great, this piece had nails in it, so I assumed it’d be necessary. Any particular order to gluing it together? I was thinking one side piece and the backing first, then the bottom and lastly the 2nd side.

  7. The way I would do it is pretty much all at once. Put the shelf flat on the work bench, a line of glue on the back edge, place the back into position (either clamp or nail to hold in place while glue dries) put glue on the outer edge of one side (of shelf and back) place the side piece in position, then do the same to the other side in the same manner, and again either clamp or nail in place to hold while the glue dries. Now there will be squeeze out on your glue seams, wipe it off with a damp cloth or wait until it dries and scrape or cut it off with a knife or chisel (if you wipe it just make sure to get it off completely because any glue left on the surface will affect your finish, for this reason I always wait and cut it off).

  8. Geotextile cloth or landscape fabric works but so does just using the firepit regularly.

  9. I agree with just using your pit regularly, the heat will keep anything from growing there. If you are worried about setting a root on fire just do like you said and dig down a bit and put in a layer of rock as a barrier.

  10. I have used something like this for some heavy picture frames.

  11. I use emery boards that are for manicures, two different grits and easy to get into those tight little spots.

  12. I have a 4'x8' table that I inserted my table saw into one end, I removed the left metal wing and that is where I put my router. Just down from that I put my Dewalt miter saw on a flip top base. I have plenty of room in my shop for storage so not having anything under the saw is no big deal. But, it works great for me.

  13. I built my own cabinets, they turned out great in my opinion. I have never worked as a pro carpenter in any form, but have been doing diy all my life. Here is a video that really helped me.

  14. I have mine on a wheeled metal stand and move it to the shop door when in use, that way any sparks or debris ends up on the concrete pad outside.

  15. Also the floor reads 1.4 degrees. Do I want the tabletop to match that so it’s parallel?

  16. I use the same digital angle finder. It must be zeroed to the table before you can get accurate reading on the blade. The square is correct.

  17. I'm not sure of the material name. It looks similar to MDF, but the fibres are larger. The same stuff most inexpensive counter tops are made from.

  18. Sounds like particle board. What I would do is basically what your are talking about, cutting a 1x to the dimension and gorilla glue to the edge, sharp chisel to shave off the squeeze out then paint. Gorilla glue because it will expand into the particle board and hopefully hold better.

  19. One thing that I have always done for new boots is to rub mink oil thoroughly into the exterior. This softens the leather and adds water proofing. If still a problem then only wear them 1/2 day for a while but they break in faster.

  20. I would personally go with a tension rod that can fit inside the frame. But the frame looks big enough for command hooks....you can simply hang something from there if you want as well.

  21. This is what I came to say, command hooks work very well and leave no marks.

  22. I have my shop in a double car garage that I don't put the cars in. I have a 4x8 bench on wheels, built in table saw and router table on one end, so I can use the saw fence with both. Flip up sliding miter saw on the side. Yes the con of having to clean up if you want to rip up something long on the table saw but I have found that I am doing all of my long cuts before I start any assembly. The biggest headache is when I am assembling something and need the miter saw, but in that case I have simply used the table saw crosscut sled.

  23. This is the way I wrap my cords, find the middle, mark with a permanent marker and start at that spot, hang on simple hook. No more tangles

  24. The nice thing about building your own custom workbench is that you can make it any way or height that you want or need. I made mine to 38 inches because that is where I am the most comfortable when working. I had to make the kitchen cabinets to fit my wife though as she is only 5'4"

  25. I was just thinking if i did a butt joints, with maybe exposed dowels cut flush with the outside, might look pretty interesting. This was good advice. I may change my plan and go with butt joints.

  26. You can also do half lap, basically a butt joint that overlaps half of the other board, good and strong, isn't as pretty but will hold up. Use good wood glue. an example

  27. Depends on age, my 5 year old loves making birdhouses. She builds them and then she paints them on bad weather days

  28. bird houses and feeders, or bat houses. all are pretty simple and can be nailed together giving them some hammer time (you nail a couple to "hold it in place" and let them bang away.

  29. Bring your grandpa over and let him give you advice. You will never regret spending the time with him.

  30. Being a grandpa myself, this is probably the best answer, he will know the tools and the space needed for them. Also as Welcometodiowa says, you need more outlets and light.

  31. Understood. I’m certain they’re not gonna put it in the dishwasher, just something that is more forgiving for hand washing long term when someone doesn’t necessarily know how often to reapply

  32. Just make sure to let them know not to put in the dishwasher please, I have had the experience of gifting a board and thought that she was smart enough not to, but alas... she did it anyway just wash it with a damp cloth (wood is much more antimicrobial than the plastic boards. As far as how often to oil, I always suggest at least once a month or if the finish seems to be getting lighter.

  33. Safety tools. Glasses, push sticks/blocks, feather boards, the dangers of aprons and/or any loose clothing, working with sharp edges (plane blades, scraper blades). If using power tools their blade guards and those limitations, where to position hands, and where to stand when using them.

  34. Gotta have pics when you get going. Be safe.

  35. I have used them on my table saw to get it ready for waxing, they work great for this. I do plan to use them on some fine finishing but have not started that project yet.
