I just bought a new table saw and I need dust collection! The manufacturer says a shop vac won’t be enough. What do any of you use for dust collection?

My lungs and nasal passages :(


I use a portable Laguna B|flux that I move from tool to tool. For the longest time I used the biggest shopvac (Ridgid actually) that I could find. The difference between the two is incredible. The dust collector has so much more CFM and is much quieter as well. It is quiet enough that I just leave it running between cuts where I would be turning the vacuum off just so I wouldn’t have to hear it. Even with hearing protection I found it annoying. It is very high on my “things I wish I would have bought sooner” list. If you have the space I would suggest getting the biggest you can fit and/or afford.

I have the same concerns with Laguna. In my case it was the smallest mobile canister filter I could find. So far, so good.

Any recent projects to share? I’ve got a few photos I’ll post today!


Getting ready to pull the trigger on a SawStop cabinet saw. Anyone who has bought one before able to share their experience what the deliver lead time was?

What have you found to be great safety features/add-ons or practices when using a table saw?


Sat down tonight and forced myself to learn Sketchup in order to design some cabinets for a bathroom remodel.... it’s literally a game changer. It will even orient your grain pattern and spit out an optimized plywood cut diagram. Really cool.


This board is quiet, so I’m going to post a retrospective of a guitar amp speaker cabinet that I recently built :)

Finally! What’s everyone’s latest projects?

Well guys and gals: I did it. I found a way to merge consulting and woodworking. I present to you a walnut shoe rack full of Allen Edmonds shoes. Still need to put some finish on it and complete a second identical one for the closet. Addl. pics below

Not that I’ve worn ties much in the last year, but I made this to get a bit more organized. The pegs are actually bolts for door hinges that I cut down. $1.25 for a 4 pack kept this whole thing under $10

Hi woodworkers! I’m pretty young (24) and therefore not super established in one spot — what’s the best way to get started in woodworking without needing to buy a bunch of equipment? Are there like pay-to-use woodshops or something?
Based in Boston if it helps, have ~3yr experience from high school shop class


Not quite woodworking (yet), but I’ll end up building the speaker cabinet for this thing shortly.

I’m making an outfeed table / workbench. I have three design ideas for the frame right under the top. Which ones do you think is best? I want it to stay flat and have some easy clamping on the edge. I have numbers next to each one.

Let's talk dust collection. So I was under the impression that dust collection would clean up a lot of the sawdust. Right now, I'm using a shop vac. Currently, anything that doesn't get directed out the dust collection port piles up. Is that normal? Should I get a second shop vac?

For example, was belt sanding 100 stamp blocks. Stopped every 20 or so to clean up dust pulling up at edge of sander.

Anyone find a good source for cheap garage floor mats? Need to cover about 300sqft and would love to avoid paying through the nose lol… Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places but it seems like flooring mats are shockingly expensive. Am I just out of touch?

Whats the next project you want to take on?

Any recent projects?

Recommendations for a book, website, or YouTube channel for beginner woodworking projects? I have a very good contractor table saw, orbital sander, and a few other basic tools...and would like to tackle a few projects to see if woodworking is something I really enjoy. I have three daughters ages 7, 11, and 13 so projects that could become gifts would be an added bonus.


It's a little crooked, but it's standing! My first project.

Has anyone built a barn home? Would you be interested in talking about the process, costs, and considerations? We're looking at that and would be interested to better understand how to get going.
