Re: Mothers Day Planters

I did the tapers on the bandsaw once I had cut down the legs to 2x36 rectangles on the saw (for the tall one). The mortise and tenon/slot work - I first thought to do on the router table, but opted to nibble them away on the saw once I gave that a try and saw it worked nicely. I have a couple pieces...

Mothers Day Planters

I started this about a week ago as I wanted to attempt a mortise+tenon joint. I hadn't worked on that before. The first tenon attempt came out offset on the board face..haha-took some creative alignment on the mortise side later..but it worked for the most part. offset-mortise.jpg Here are the legs/...

Re: Scott's My Growth Rings youtube channel & website

One bandsaw fence confusion I have is the variations i see on the lock mechanism . Not the pull down handle side, but the other side which grips the table itself as shown here. I see on the last MGR video, your fence seems to be missing the aluminun bracket piece itself but the black hex? nut is in ...
