    Stain, sanding grit, raising grain etc

    Probably over thinking this but here goes. looking to add dark stain to some oak, doing some reading, it’s suggested just to sand to 120 grit and then stain. Also suggests raising the grain with a wet rag. once that’s done, I apply stain, but haven’t yet addressed the raised grain and sanding...

    Wooden buttons tabletop - optimum sizing?

    Is there an optimal size for tabletop buttons? specifically was thinking about the size of the tongue so I can cut correctly sized slots/grooves, planning on 6mm as I have a 6mm grooving bit for the router, otherwise I guess could cut a complete groove on the table saw, but this will run into...

    Sketch up help!

    Thanks. That’s a good idea. I have a server running as a nas and do have some virtual machines on there already, so could soon spin up another vm and install the stand alone version in there I can print out of the vms anyway and save the files direct to the disk array on the nas.

    I wonder if that’s it for sketch up make then in Mac OS. I don’t like the browser version of sketch up but if I upgrade to big sur I may have no choice. :(

    Designing some side tables, out of comfort zone, input need please!

    what should I do about breaking all the edges of the aprons legs and top of the table, shall I put a really small chamfer/45 bevel on them or round them over with an 1/8 round over bit? Im putting a large bevel on the underside of the tabletop, so tempted with that all round to match? even the...

    Designing some side tables, out of comfort zone, input need please!

    Thanks for that. Great tip!! I’ve cut them all today. Used the table saw and crosscut sled so they are identical, some tighter than others so will fine tune each one - is that normal to do?

    Designing some side tables, out of comfort zone, input need please!

    thanks, I'll have a go with one of the test legs and see how I go with squaring the mortice. Yep, its nice to do a bit and then leave it, I have the tops glued also - now sitting under something heavy to hopefully stop them cupping while in the garage. They were dead flat after glue , so thought...

    Designing some side tables, out of comfort zone, input need please!

    Made a bit more progress, I won't swamp the thread with pictures, I'll save that for a project thread :) I tried with hand tools, and after cutting 2 mortices which took forever, I really wasn't happy with them, must be an OCD thing. Because I have 16 to cut (2 tables now, each leg has 2...

    Ryobi BT250ET 254mm Table saw riving knife

    I think you may be misinterpreting it. They are flat. surprisingly there is a wiki on riving knifes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riving_knife may be that pic is a better angle?

    Ryobi BT250ET 254mm Table saw riving knife

    I took this from the manual on my Bosch GTS10J: When changing the saw blade, pay attention that the kerf width is not less than 2.3 mm and the blade body thickness not greater than 2.3 mm. Otherwise, there is danger that the riving knife (2.3 mm) becomes wedged in the workpiece. this is a...

    Walnut audio interface stand, finished in OSMO PolyX

    Another hobby is music, and I use a Mac and audio software to achieve (Ableton) I bought an audio interface, which is something that connects between the computer and the speakers (I guess like a sound card in the old PC days!) Anyway, its quite boring looking, and not overly tactile, so I...

    Designing some side tables, out of comfort zone, input need please!

    Ive bought a trend bit - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Trend-TRETR3514TC-TR3514TC-Biscuit-Jointer/dp/B001I9YTTA Didn't pay that for it, got it for £25 from the great auction site - and some trend biscuits to go with it. You would hope that stuff from the same manufacturer fits. I'll try it out and...

    Tpt125 triton thicknesser extractor

    thanks, that's given me some confidence. I bought an adapter to convert the 100mm to the size of the tpt125 already but ill probably get the kit anyway so I can use it with the sander - I can use the Nilfisk for the car then and it not be full of dust!

    Tpt125 triton thicknesser extractor

    Thanks, do you find it ok? I was looking at that specific one. I’m making a real mess at the moment!

    Has anyone modified extraction ports on tools?

    interested to see how you get on with this - ive just bought a tpt125. Will you keep the original dust chute, and buy a new one and modify that?
