Class Projects

We love to highlight select projects from our student classes. Our latest submission is from Kathy who took one of our popular Figured Cutting Board classes. See details and images from her experience in the class here.

School Facility

Last Fall we cut the ribbon on the newest of our three facilities and followed that up with a Grand Opening of our School of Woodworking. We believe it provides the very top-tier in educational facilities for woodworkers. View the video above to see what great things people are saying! Better yet, come and see the Midwest's Premier Woodworking Destination!

Tip of the Week
  • Table Saw Miter Gauge Accessories

    The factory miter gauge that comes with many table saws is often improved by adding a few accessories.  Adding a sacrificial wooden fence to the miter gauge can help users cut accurately.  A saw kerf cut into the fence will determine exactly where the saw blade will engage the lumber during cross cutting operations.  Use double stick (carpet) tape to attach fine sand paper to the miter gauge fence.  The sand paper will grip the work piece to reduce slipping and unwanted movement during the cutting operation. Sandpaper on the miter gauge fence will not damage the saw blade but the kerf cut into the fence will improved miter gauge fence for cross cutting.  Another advantage for the miter gauge fence is to provide an attachment for a stop when cutting several pieces of wood the same length.
