Can you identify these species? - 7 replies

I’ve been hired to do some illustrations for a book on interior decorating. One of the concepts is “wood comes in many different colors – it isn’t just brown”. Can anyone help me identify the 16 species shown in this photo? Doesn’t have to be perfect, just reasonably correct.

Advice on dimensions and hardware for a room divider - 6 replies

I am interested in building something such as this. If the uprights are 80” high, what would be the minimum safe length for the feet so that it won’t be tippy? I won’t be pacing anything heavy on the shelves. About the shelves: the idea is that they are slotted, and there are pins fixed in each slat, and the shelves s...

Can you template rout an interior shape? - 4 replies

Can you template rout an interior shape? Lets say I want to make several identical 6” x 9” oval frames. Could I use a jigsaw to roughly cut out the interior, and then attach a template and use a flush-trim bit in the router table to perfect the interior? Or does that turn into one of those dangerous climb cutting operations?

Does Eastern/Aromatic Red Cedar change color? - 2 replies

Does the heartwood of Eastern/Aromatic Red Cedar undergo color change? I’d like to incorporate a splash of reddish color into an inlay I’m designing. Purpleheart is, of course, notorious for turning brown, and some people report that bloodwood does the same. So I’m looking for a safe simple alternative.

Is there such a thing a "light stabilization"? - 1 reply

I have a piece of interesting wormy wood that I’d like to use as an inlay. It isn’t worth sending it out to have it stabilized and I’m not interested in buying a vacuum pump system. Is there something simple I can do to stabilize this piece? The worm trails are very solid – I can’t dislodge them even after prodding ...

Can you "true" a small piece on a router table if it has no reference faces? - 38 replies

I’ve got some 3/4” x 3/4” x 5” scraps of exotics I’d like to true up. They were cut on a bandsaw and all have at least some good (i.e. reasonably stable, not tippy or wobbly) sides but no “true” sides. I though I’d be able to true them up with a hand plane but that is not going so well. I have a...

Stanley Sweetheart #62 - how does the depth adjustment screw work? - 1 reply

I have one of the new Stanley Sweetheart #62s. Does anyone know does the depth adjustment screw (DAS) is supposed to work? The instructions say loosen the lever screw cap, then us the DAS to extend the blade by turning clockwise, retract by turning counter clockwise. I find that the only way that I can turn the DAS is to first remove both the...

What should I do to the back when sharpening a bevel-up plane iron? - 6 replies

I have a Stanley Sweetheart 62 Low Angle (bevel up) plane. I’m about to sharpen the iron for the first time. For my #5 plane I use “the ruler trick” for the back: insert a thin ruler between the back of the iron and the top of the stone to lift it up a few degrees. A random person told me to never do that with a bevel-up ...
