Drill lathe kit

Cheap drill lathe kit. Rummageinthegarage
The truth is I´ve never been really interested in having a lathe to turn pieces of wood, but it is also true that I like to watch woodturners working with it, mainly when I have one working right in front of me, with all the shavings jumping everywhere. And the pieces of furniture with lots of turnings is something I don´t like too much, neither.

Circular saw spline miter jig

Spline miter joint. Rummageinthegarage
After the fail when I tried to reinforce with dowels the miter joints in the corners of this cabinet door, I thought I could try to cut grooves in the corners to glue some splines to reinforce those 45 degree joints.
