Woodworking Resources

Tom Plamann, woodworker. Among other things, check out his airplane cabinets, curved wood built lightweight for corporate jets, but there's a lot there, and he shows some good construction photos. Note the "Show All" button on his pages, it's your friend.

Matthias Wandel's woodworking page has a fingerjointing jig for a tablesaw that has some ideas to pull off of, and a computer controlled version of same, along with a bunch of other cool and wacky projects.

Pat Warner is a router god taken to the next level.

Kevin Brady is a lawyer from Minneapolis who does woodworking. He's also got some good notes on DIY dust control.

Speaking of dust control, Bill's Cyclone and Dust Collection Research - Cyclone Building Instructions looks totally worthwhile if you've got a large enough shop to need a stationary dust collection system but not so big that you can justify a commercial cyclone for parts extraction. However, if you can afford the commercial cyclone, Clear Vue Cyclones are his cyclone design done in clear acrylic, so you can see the sawdust swirling as it's separated out from the vacuum feed.

Joe Woodworker has a bunch of neat notes, along with selling some really pretty veneers and providing information on doing your own vacuum forming and veneering, so you can get the same quality that the big commercial cabinet shops do. Might also be a useful resource if you plan on playing with carbon fiber, fiberglass, or other molding materials.

Submitted, Dan, for your perusal, if you've not seen it. The first thing that came to mind was.... "Hmmmm... I could see Dan wanting to put his tool to use for something like this."

[Edit: I notice some potential wonkyness with his site. Try this link for his work if there's an issue.]
