Third hand... - 2 replies
Whenever I need the end of a board held I use my scissor jack I found during the closing of a drug store. Do not know what it was used for. Works great and doesn’t ask dumb questions or joke when I’m trying to fit a joint.

Turning My First Chess Set... - 0 replies
Now that I’ve decided on Rosewood and Hard Maple I have started turning the chess set I am building for my grandson. The piece shapes are shapes that appeal to me through trial and error and are easy to create on my homemade lathe. I use scrap wood to get the shape I want and then turn the piece with good wood. I truthfully don’t ...

Wood Experts...I need some help. - 42 replies
I have decided to use rosewood for the dark side of my chess set I’m making. The piece in the picture below has been sanded to 800 and I love the look and feel of rosewood. Here’s my question. Is there a light wood I can use that is similar to rosewood for my light side? I tried white oak and poplar. Didn’t like either. I ...

Gold Standards... - 74 replies
We all know the Sawstop is the gold standard by which all other tablesaws are judged. That said, I’m a little hazy on which brands capture the gold standard ribbon on other types of power equipment. I’m guessing Dewalt holds the standard for most of the handheld power tools. How about planers, jointers, bandsaws, etc. Any ideas? A...

Let’s start another thread with which tool have you recently found useful that you didn’t use in the past. BTW, watch where yours hands and fingers ar...

mm tape... - 4 replies
Some of the plans that I download are either from Canada or England woodworkers and we all know their plans are in metric. So, instead of continually trying to convert and/or approximate I have purchased a metric tape. Now I can follow the plans exactly. I don’t understand why it took me so long to cave. A lightbulb moment… BTW, ...

LJ Topics - 91 replies
About a year or so ago when a topic was published it would move past page one within an hour or two unless it attracted comments. Now, it can take all day for a topic to migrate from the top to the next page. This tells me there is not as much action on the site. Has member interest been lost? Have interesting members been lost? Or, maybe there ...

1. Goodbye Jim. You’re one of the most level headed, calm, nice guys I know. I wish you luck in your retirement should you go that direction. However, before leaving you have to relinguish the title of Grand Pooba of Lumberjocks. If I find someone worthy of the title I will bestow it upon the lucky member.2. While reading all of the ...
