How much contrast is too much? - 2 replies

Good evening everyone. I am in the process of building a TV stand/chest of drawers and would like some input on something. The design is a low chest of drawers with a few drawers replaced with shelves for components. I had originally planned to leave the back of the center shelf open for access to the back of the reciever and for wires. I h...

End grain router planing bits - 3 replies

I’ve got a project which involves cleaning up a couple dozen “tree cookies”. I need to flatten and thickness them. This evening I built a router sled which is working well but I am considering upgrading bits. The largest bit I currently have is a 3/4” straight bit.

Source for Hold down clamps - 0 replies

am thinking finally picking up a thickness planer. a couple of Dewalts for sale on craigslist locally. A “lightly used” dw733 with a spare set of blades for 250 and a “New” dw 734 for 300.

Stocking up on Mahogany - 3 replies

Last week I was at one of our local hardwood dealers for some poplar and ended up leaving with just under 20 bf of Mahogany (7-12 in wide boards). The S3S 4/4 mahogany was selling for 5.99 a BF, clear pieces at around 6-7 ft in length. I didn’t have a real plan for the wood but figured I could come up with something. I have one project ...
