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. The two bits I am looking at are a 1 1/4 dish carving...

Driving the Silk Road in a VW Vanagon - 2 replies

Aside from being a ridiculously cool adventure I thought there might be some interest here in the...

Source for Hold down clamps - 0 replies
Good morning, just thought I would pass on a good source for hold down clamps and other hardware. Reid Tool has a huge selection of the De-Sta-Co style clamps. I have used them quite a bit for work projects in the past and thought some of you all might be interested. Their prices are a few dollars better than Rockler et al and they have every ...

How much should I pay? - 19 replies
There is a guy locally who is selling an older jet 3/4 HP, 14” bandsaw(motor says 1997, it’s a blue one). It is in mint condition and seems to rum quite smooth but he is asking $600 for it with a Rockler band-saw table.

quick planer poll. - 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. The new one seems like the better deal. I may be able to pick one up at Lowe’s for 320 if they will take a harbor freight 20...

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 ...

After moving to CO a few years back and buying a turn of the century (1901) victorian I have been building my skills and shop up to the point that I ave begun to tackle some more fur...
