Okay, thanks, I'm not a great fan of blunt drill bits that have been used just a few times. I've always found when drilling metal, it pays to have some motor oil handy to dip the drill bits in at the start and to have a piece of wood under the metal so it doesn't strike concrete or dirt.

Just as a matter of interest, in one of my periods of semi retirement boredom, I took up wood carving and joined the Wood Carving Club of N.S.W. so here's my efforts before discovering the delights of Thailand which were a bit more Physical. Start at the bottom pictures for sequence order. keep forgetting to get it right. :wink: :wink:

You do like to keep yourself busy don't you.

Impressive work but your daughter needs counseling on the tit aspect ... probably only available in the US where you can get counseling for anything and everything :lol:

hello woodworker

if you could kindly showcase some of your diy projects, it could really get the forum going.

for me as a noob, what i have is a pretty banged up maktec router. personally for myself is to get my woodworking skills up before comtemplating more expensive purchases.

is there a difference between working on local hardwood and temperate hardwood? i read something about length of the grain, and whether it is open or closed. for example in making a dovetail joint, are they more subject to tearout?


For your maktec router I recommend the thaicarpenter router table


Unless you want to build a simple one

Simple projects are tables specially if you buy the legs

TV table

The only problem with the TV table is that then SWMBO has to get a TV for it (giving away the current one) and new windows and new curtains. :wink: :wink: :roll:

You can also make custom sized tables.

do you have any advice on how to route really small pieces of wood?

i'm thinking the clamp will get in the way of the router

Don't :D

Seriously though, rout big pieces then cut them into smaller ones.

If you take a look at Tom Silver and how he makes door trim to fill in the closing rebate in an old house youwill get the idea.

Edit: the previously linked YouTube video has gone and I can't find a replacement. STWW
