Carpentry and Miter Saw Tips for the Weekend Woodworker – Pt 2

If woodworking is new to you, it pays to carefully read plans prior to starting projects. Be sure you understand them through and through. If they aren’t complete go to a home improvement store to see if they can help you.

TIPS! You can make sanding blocks on your own. Cut a piece of wood to the shape and size you need for your project.

Stay safe when using a table saw. Use a block clamped to the fence whenever you are crosscutting a piece of wood to properly set te cut’s length. This is safer and prevents board movement. When you use a clamp, the end of the board is still available to be cut.

TIPS! Think about future modifications when planning a big project. For instance, if a shed building project is being considered, is electricity something you may want in the future? If this is the case, you have to make sure there is a lot of room for switches and wiring to get installed.
