    This past year I have taught my self to work with melamine. I must give credit to many articles where I gleaned my knowledge. Prior I worked with walnut and poplar. The cost led me to look at melamine. It is OK but I would prefer wood to work with.

    Hello everyone, My name is Thad and I am fairly new to woodworking. My step-father loved to work with wood and had an impressive shop prior to his passing in 2009. It was something that looked interesting, but it never grabbed me - until now. I kick myself for not being interested in it sooner...

    Hello Y'all, I'm new to these forums, so I don't know exactly where I'll best fit in. I have 2 Routers, 1 is a Skill 1/4" single speed (my first router, and it still runs), and the other is a Bosch 1613AEVS, which currently needs a little repair work. Since I am mechanically inclined, I'm...

    Hi, I'm Mac, and although I've been woodworking most of my life, it's been without the benefit of a community of like minded people. My experience is strictly non-professional, dabbling in a variety of projects from picture frames, to cabinetry and "tall" ship models. I'm currently developing...

    Hey I just wanted to say hi to everyone. What I know about routers is that they spin very fast and its a bad idea to place them bit down on the workbench before turning them off!!!! I'm a stick and hammer guy and have survived on a chisel for 20 years but now I wish to leave the cave put down...
