  1. This is just a curiosity question. Have any of you tried or currently use a ceramic bladed utility knife/ craft knife? I saw this ad and went to their site because they have a round blade that looks easier to hold....like a pencil. Then I was curious about using ceramic blades for wood. I asked my husband about them as he is in the cabinet industry and he couldn't really say anything either way. I had a teeney ceramic knife at one point that was used for getting into that horrible anti-theft plastic on most merchandise. I didn't worry about my kids using the knife...in fact the cut plastic was more dangerous! I may have to get one just to satisfy my curiosity. I have a terrible time keeping my grip on knives when I am cutting wood with a craft knife and have had some near misses.
  2. Hi all! Today I spent quite a bit of time in our basement workshop with my minis supply box and our workshop tools and after several hours of work came out with three small tables! yay! It was a move in the right direction from spending hours drooling over pictures to actually doing things for my houses. One reason it took sooooo long was that no matter what I did my table legs kept coming out uneven! Then I'd have to cut, sand, and level until it was straight. The other reason was that one table leg refused to stay in place even after attempting several glues, which meant releveling and resanding after I scraped off the non-working glue. I don't think anything could help the second issue, it was just a cursed day, but I suspect better tools could help with the first issue. I have a cheap little miter box and saw (was cheaper than the x-acto and I thought it could tide me over a few paychecks since I had so many supplies to get, then get the x-acto one later) and I used that to cut my table legs. It just seemed like no matter how carefully I measured, cut, and sanded the legs kept coming out different lengths. Just by enough to make the table wobble. Would a better miter box be a simple solution? Or do most of you prefer the chopper thing that cuts like scissors and has a little miter thing on it? I hear mixed reviews about that tool. Some people rave and some people say it just smooshs the wood. This is pay week, so I can get a better something, but I'm not sure what the best thing to buy is. Thanks for any help!
