April Fools Day - 77 replies
I think April Fools Day should be a religious holiday where we all pause, thank our creator of choice (or not, if we are creatorless) and stop killing each other for one day each year. Part of the celebration would include spending the day with a group of people that for whatever reason we look down on or despise or hate or have no consideration...

Joewhite just brought up a good thought... - 45 replies
and it got me to thinking. How many Jocks out there can adjust a sled or miter gauge to within .001” and why would you want to? When it comes to woodworking I do not think .001” (that’s better than 1/512”) would matter in any of the projects that I have seen on this site. In fact why would it matter in any wood proj...

My First Gloat...I really hate that word. - 19 replies
I would much rather say “my first cheap/free find for the workshop”. However, I will abide by LJ prescriptions. Anyway, my brother-in-law liquidates store property for companies that have gone out of business or closed a location. He was at a store on the weekend, I stopped by to see him and ended up with some additional shop stor...

Steve Latta is a Wood Chiropractor - 27 replies
In the April, 2013 copy of Fine Woodworking Steve Latta states that dropping rough cut lumber on the floor prior to final dimensioning relieves stress. He didn’t say whether it was his stress or the wood’s but I’m assuming he was referring to the wood. Latta believes that when dropping rough parts on the floor the impact rele...

“Which (fill in the blank) should I buy? This has probably been discussed before but I’m just soooooo lost and need the help of the “experts” on this site. Please, please help little old me.” How many posts have you seen on this site that are similar to this? If it wasn’t for these types of posts half th...

Here's a good question... - 39 replies
Is it more difficult to build a small box with a hinged lid or is it more difficult to build a cabinet with a door? Personally I vote for the box. Much more intricate and much more attention to detail required. Hinges on a cabinet door are much easier. I’ve done both cabinet and box and that’s what I think.

Lee Valley Chisels...Updated - 37 replies
I have the below pictured tools and am kinda disappointed in them. Today I was dovetailing some oak and when I was done I found them to have some small dents/chips in the cutting edge. To experiment I cleaned them up and did some more dovetails. Same result. Is the red oak hard enough to do this damage? I have the angle on the chisels at 25...

Zero Clearance Insert - 31 replies
I don’t use any kind of dust collection above the saw blade and have found that I get less dust in the face when I use the standard kerf insert that came with my tablesaw versus when I’m using my zero clearance insert. I might be imagining it. I now only use my zero clearance insert when I am cutting thin strips. I have ...

This is from the Daily Astorian newspaper from 1963. Times change and still remain the same… Remember when we used to worry about proposals to raise the ceiling on the national debt? Now it has been raised again and again so often that a new proposal for it goes by almost without notice. Treasury Secretary Dillon has just warned Congre...
