I am ready to put an edge on a 19” x 50” table top. Top is very close to 1” thick. I have nice, straight, smooth ends on the table top, so it is ready for the “edging process”. Would like to put a heavy chamfer on the BOTTOM of the table top…......probably go 75% of the thickness of the table with no ...

It has been banging around in my little box of punches forever. I think it came used with a bunch of other stuff I bought used cuz I never bought it. It is obviously spring loaded and it looks like it can be used as a centering punch. More than that, I do not know. Thanks in advance Bruce.

A Few Small Shop Improvements - 1 reply
For those of you who remember my Thien Thing project…........ http://lumberjocks.com/projects/62510 ....... Here is an update.

I pushed on the knot a little as it was kinda rattling around in its “hole”. The knot fell to the floor and shattered. My wife, who happened to be in the garage shop at the time saw something roll ou...

Live Edge Guys – Advice Needed - 5 replies
I scored what I think are 2 pieces of nicely shaped wood. It is some breed of pine. Both pieces are consecutive cuts, measure about 13” x 13” with the bark OFF, so they will be too large for my planer. Luckily each piece is real close to the same “thickness” throughout, so no real issues there. One is about 1 1/2” thick, ...

But, I am positive it does a AAA-Bang-up job on whatever-the-hell it is supposed to do. I knew old-man Critt himself, and nothing he did was half-ass or h...

A month or so ago, MsDebbieP pm’d me and asked if I would do the next monthly interview. I was truly shocked. I argued that there are so MANY others on LJ that would be much more deserving than I.

A+ Service from Rockler - 4 replies
I think we all have mixed experiences with the same company…..great-service one time and then not-so-great. Well, just a quick “Atta Boy” and thanks to Steve at Rockler. I asked a simple but critical (to me) question about the actual size of a hinge (width of each leaf was what I was worried about) and he sent me a VERY d...

Only have bits and tenons for 1/4” (and don’t particularly want to buy 3/8 stuff right now) Working with 6/4 stock for the top (prior to planeing ) and 4/4 stock (prior to planeing) for the rest. ...
