Pet Peeves - 114 replies
Just posted this on Mike1950’s thread but started thinking you guys also have pet peeves that would be interesting to hear about. I have been trying to get my 90 year old mom to use a bank card or credit card in checkout lines for years. Still have not convinced her. Mike, I truly hope, wish and even pray that you are not one of those p...

If you are a hobbyist you don’t need much. Watch Wood Working for Mere Mortals on YouTube. He can build anything and does not have the best tools. You just do not need high price stuff. Better yet work your way through the projects section of this site, find the type and style of woodworking you want to do and then look at that persons ...

Things that don't mix... - 29 replies
You all know what I’m talking about. Things like water and oil, laxatives and air travel, priests and small boys, etc. The first is science, the second is common sense and the last one is in the daily news.

Mitered box corner techniques... - 12 replies
I have been experimenting with different mitered corner arrangements for my boxes. I have done the plain mitered corners, the spline mitered corners, the keyed mitered corners and the doweled mitered corners. I like mitered because the end grain is hidden. The picture below shows what I’ve been experimenting with. The process I used was ...

The only thing dumber than “pull the trigger” is “tool gloat”. Where did these come from?

Too much? How about this? - 29 replies
I am nearing completion on this box for my mom’s friend. Waiting on some hinges I ordered. Here is my question. Is the the little bit of lacewood distracting or does it complement the medalian? The body of the box is rosewood and walnut. Please be honest, I do not need “nice comments”.Thanks

The old eyes aint what they use to be... - 17 replies
When I’m doing small, delicate work no matter how close I get to the work (my nose has a permanent red spot) I can’t seem to see clearly enough. I bought this from Woodcraft and found an immediate improvement. This is another tool I use frequently. What do you guys use to get up close and personal with your work?

Any ideas for these? - 27 replies
Just read a project post that used these as a bench vise. You guys have any other jigs/uses for these? Got them for free 10 years ago and have never used them.

Am I missing something? - 62 replies
There are hundreds (?) of plane enthusiasts on this site. About the only plane I use on almost every project is my Stanley block plane (G12-060) given to me by my father in law. It needed some work. Now, the sole is flat and the blade is sharp. I use it for fine shavings during fittings. Here’s my question. If the sole is absolutely ...

Who is this? - 12 replies
I monitor a combined feed of 5 or 6 different woodworking sites. I saw this picture but when I followed it back to it’s source (LJ’s) I got a page cannot be found. Does anyone know anything about the below picture? I love it.

When I view unanswered topics there are 90 pages of posts that someone needed help and did not get a response. However, at this writing there are 46 giggling responses to “I guess some cleaning is in order”.

As I was making lunch today... - 5 replies
I started thinking about lunches past. As I was putting some potato chips on my plate I remembered times long, long ago when I was young and poor and how my partner and I shared a bag of chips at lunch each day. He would never eat a chip that had a dark brown (burnt) spot on it. This was ok with me since that gave me a couple more at the end ...

Mass Graves - 4 replies
I think all mass burials must be accompanied by a bronze plaque stating the reason for the mass burial. This way archaeologists five hundred years from now won’t have to guess…

Small dowels from large dowels... - 4 replies
I remember seeing a video where a guy needed a dowel smaller than the dowel stock he had on hand. He took the dowel and ran it between his tablesaw blade and the fence. No jig, no setup, nothing but the blade and fence. At first everyone thought it was very unsafe but when thinking about it only the front of the blade made contact with the dow...

Does anyone wonder how stuff like this makes the news? Better yet I wonder about the mental state of the one coming to this type of conclusion. The king of dinosaurs — Tyrannosaurus rex — certainly was not designed to be a carnivore, according to Paul Taylor of Creation Today.The legendary Tyrannosaurus rex probably “ate people” and other di...

I’m sure it will be along the lines of it’s the government’s fault since they did not supply them with jobs or the incentive to be doing something more constructive than killing for fun. I wonder if Obama will claim to be just like them when he was a boy…

Show your equipment modifications. - 24 replies
My wife is getting a new car and it’s wider than the one that curently lives in my shop. To make room I shortened the stand for my mitersaw. I seldom if ever use the full width of the stand to cut wood so it is not much of a loss. I took 18” out of it. Anyway, here it is… It would be nice to see other equipment modif...
