There are always a ton of things I want to do, but I think I need to do one of them straight away:
a tenon jig. One for my saw, I should say.
Since I don't have miter slots, I'll be building a fence rider, just like this one: A Slick Tenoning Jig - Fine Woodworking Article
My question isn't one of how to make it, but rather how to use it. Is this just something that I'll need to play around with and sneak up on cheek cuts until I figure out where to set the fence each time?
The other project, now that I pretty much have storage temporarily figured out, is finally getting around to building a new bench. My tables have worked fine to this point, but I'd like something I can treat a little more roughly, and more importantly, hammer on without fear.
I've been enamored with building the Tom Caspar bench. Tom's Torsion Box Workbench - Projects - American Woodworker
But I'm wondering if I should go with something more solid, like the Popular Woodworking (http://popularwoodworking.com/upload...Workbench2.pdf
) or Holzapfel. I was wondering what you thought of the PW bench, made up of dimensional pine glued together. It's an interesting concept, one that I'm sure is a lot heavier than the Caspar one.
Just thoughts on this one, I'm not sure which direction to go right now.
