However you only get one side of an entire pipe with a thread.
What I did was get some 4" nipples which are threaded both sides, cut in half
And then welded them to pipe so the pipe now has a threaded end,
You could try a multi-die pipe threader, also. They are about US$50.

Zorak wrote:Over the last 2 years I've started toying around with some little woodworking projects. Haven't built anything really impressive yet. In the process of building my kitchen cupboard and bathroom vanity. They're both about 80% complete, functional til I get around to completing them.

For now I only work with pine that I get in the hardware and plywood. And getting a properly straight length of lumber is the hardest thing for me. I'm thinking about getting a table-saw or planer or jointer to help with straightening the lumber. Which do you guys suggest?

I really need to organise my tools properly and a proper workspace though. I feel like I just need to setup a mitre saw station and maybe a router table and that will help speed things along nicely. It's such a pain to always be unpacking and packing everything whenever I'm working on something.

Can you guys suggest somewhere I can get a little nicer wood than pine for my projects? And why doesn't anyone carry dressed 2x2s!?

Pine and ply are both failures. They only last so long. Woodlice, termites and dry rot gets to them too fast. Try teak and MDF or one of the local hardwoods like cajuca. I've had work done over fifteen to twenty years with no problems and I've seen people having to do over five year old jobs. There are places in Penal that I buy teak from ,that sometimes cost the same as the pine in the hardware's. They have different sizes and lenghts and you can also have them cut to your specs
Thare are also people who sell and dress the wood so you have it ready to use.

I pretty much finished it but haven’t had time to build anything yet
The drawback with it is that it uses a 1/4” bit
So the tenons will be 1/4” thick.

I recently came across a very nice router mortising jig which is very easy to use and build.
I gonna build this one too.

so if u get a 3\8 or 1\2" router but with a 1\4 shank ent that cud work too ?

d home made mortise jigs all well & good but d way i look at it a typical project say a coffee table with have 4 corners & each corner will need 2 mortise , so thats 8 right there , now same ex u also want to use bottom wood connections too so double that : 16 right there in just 1 small simple project

i aint rich by any means but thats d reason i decided to invest in a dedicated machine for it

some ppl also simply use a drill press & neaten\chisel up d cut lines , a bit too much work for me



a nice jig here too .... its a high quality almost us$200 bit he using though

They don’t seem to make plunge upspiral 1/4shank bits in 3/8 or 1/2

The benefits of the mortise jigs using floating tenons is same operation for both sides
And just cut premade tenon to length

If you watch the video his jig is really nice

Hey guys.
So I tried my hand at diy with this wardrobe. It not finished yet but just wanted to add my experience so far.
I tried using a software call sketchup to build it but need I need more time to learn it fully. It helps with the visualisation of the process. I also used cutlist organiser ( another program) which helps you reduce waste cuts.
I wanted to purchase material from carpenters edge but bought it instead from those big hardwares to save on cost. Used a circular saw and jigsaw but realised halfway in the circular saw blade was off and I didn't know how to adjust it so went with the jigsaw only at the latter parts of the build.
I also used the kreg pocket hols for the corners and shelves and once it's done properly it's really easy to do. I find their screws very superior to others I have used and plan to use them besides pocket holes.
So the dimensions are 6ft width, 7ft height and 1 1/2 ft depth.
I plan to paint and add drawers to the bottom centre and eventually doors to complete the look.
When I have more I'll add.

looking good.

best way to cut sheets with a circular saw is to clamp a fence to the left.
use some pieces of 2x2 or 2x4 under the ply to support it, like 3 pieces, 2 from the portion of the ply to the left of the cut and 1 to the right.

Most circular saws the distance from left side of base to the right side of the blade is 5.5" or something like that
some may be to the left side of the blade.

So you just need to make perpendicular marks with a good framing square and clamp a good straight edge 5.5" extra to the left
and run the saw against the straight edge/fence.

It is very common for a circular saw blade to not be in line with the left edge of its base too, this can cause real headache
so you should check that too.

Dont forget woodlice eat ply like ice cream. Termite treatment and sanding sealer helps

Looks good... Just one question. Why didn't you use melamine board instead of ply. You would have gotten a prepared surface with no need to paint .

Wanted the experience of doing it in ply as I'm painting it for my daughters' use and never worked with melamine.

nice d thread has some action in it

good going , i'm guessing u gonna do a face frame for it

like said above ply is woodlice fav food , treat it indeed , this is why i dont use ply i rather mdf or melamine which is not that much more $ but saves u a TON of work since u dont have to finish it except for d edges , slightl;y harder to work with since u dont want to send screws thru that nice surface so u have to re-engineer ur carpentry to suit

keep us updated

just a btw - almost everybody on youtube puts a straight edge against d base side of d saw further away from d blade , tried that yrssss ago b4 youtube was invented but from ever since i prefer using straight edge by d side closer to d blade

like shown @ 2.39 ... thats just me - choose whichever 1 u like

I find that way coming to the end there is not much support for the saw as it is the narrow strip from right of blade to fence which is holding up the saw
my saw real heavy so it a pia

Mine is a very heavy duty dewalt
Noticeably heavier than the regular ones
Plus it has sideways alignment and uses a ball joint at the back instead of the normal rivet hinge

My DeWalt saw had some weight to, so does hadda watch and make sure it supported, if it starts to hang near the end the blade could end up cutting at an angle

What's the best way to finish the edges? Especially if being used as cupboards where moisture is present

To make it waterproof
Fiberglass resin brushed on
Then you can used a coloured edge band with a heat gun on the edge
