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...

A/B Testing... - 11 replies

IMHO (which is typically correct) something good has come out of the “clique post”. I know there are numerous reviews of tools on this site but I have not seen a lot of tool testing comparisons. What I propose is to get a list of tools that we would like to have tested and then those folks that own multiple tools designed for the s...

My thoughts on US schooling (elementary)... - 24 replies

Reading – Everyone should be able to read. If not, we would be back in the middle ages with only our political leaders and the church translating for us. Reading cursive should be mandatory since most of our leaders and church officials are pretty flowery. We should also be taught how to read between the lines. Essential for living in t...

How do you store your clamps? - 68 replies

There are as many ways to store clamps as there are woodworkers. Youtube has many videos on how to build them. What method do you use? Please share with the rest of us. Pictured below is my method using a display rack from a department store I picked up for free. The rack has casters so I can roll them around for use and storage.

Drill Bits - 8 replies

About five years ago I bought a set of Freud forstner bits (set of 7) and have been very satisfied. They were expensive but they were recommended by a number of woodworking magazines. I use every bit except the 1 3/8” bit…maybe I used it a time or two but it still looks unused. I’ve had a couple of projects that have require...

Question Mark Tools - 20 replies

I’m sure we have all been faced with the dilemna of whether or not we should purchase a certain tool because we are not sure how often we would use it. After buying and using the tool we then come to find that we cannot do without it and wonder why we waited so long to buy one. The three tools pictured below I use during ever project I d...

Before and after... - 4 replies

The top picture is the piece of rosewood I was getting ready to plane, scrape, inlay and finish as a box top. BTW, I now secure both legs of the carpenter’s square to help keep it square. A few of you thought with only one leg secured there was the possibility of throwing the square out of square. I’m happy to report the square is s...

Police State, Big Brother, or just protecting us from ourselves? - 5 replies

There are probably only three reasons (maybe four) I would care that someone is taking pictures of my license plate.1. I’m just leaving my mistress’s house after I told my wife I would be bowling…2. I robbed a bank and I’m using my personal vehicle as the get-a-way car…3. I committed a cross town murder and have...

I'm so upset... - 30 replies

I was told that at least 40 LJ’s have left the site or greatly reduced their use of the site because of me. That is totally unbelievable and hard to take. 39 I can handle. 40 is a whole new decade of numbers that leaves me feeling guilty for having been the cause of so many being deprived of the joys of this woodworking site. I need at...

Scraping and planing... - 9 replies

The picture below is a plane stop that I almost bought from Lee Valley. However, since the stop is slightly less than 1/4” thick I would not be able to plane or scrape anything less than 1/4” thick. I do a lot of planing and scraping of wood that I want at a final thickness of 1/8”. After playing around and experimentin...

Anybody else annoyed by the underwear ads? I am not amused. Aside from the political rants on the off topic board I was operating under the assumption that the site was “family friendly”. Boy am I upset.

Good for FEMA. The fertilizer company should be paying for replacing the school and all damages incurred including payments to those families that lost someone. Why should the government be responsible for the negligence and criminal actions of West Fertilizer?
