Longleaf Pine Price? - 5 replies
I’m going this afternoon to take a look at some old growth longleaf pine this afternoon that was removed from an old local feed plan that was built in 1904. So I know the lumber is well over 100 years old (it is actually still on site) not to mention it is old growth. We haven’t discussed price, but I figured I would ask around here ...

Aftermarket Table Saw Fence? - 39 replies
I been developing a good bit of burn on my stock here lately after ripping them with my Hitachi C10FL 10” Stationary Table Saw. After adjusting the blade back true to the table top I went to get my fence in specs as well. After a long period of time, quite a few choice words, and possibly one temper tantrum I realized the fence is t...

Brainstorming An Out Feed Table - 37 replies
I am in the beginning process of designing an outfeed table for my shop. I currently have a 72”x27” simple thrown together work bench pushed up to my table saw now. My plan is remove the wheels on it, build a super beefy top, and move it away from the table saw to be used for hand tools primarily. So this leaves me with wonderful fun...

Fulton & Sargent Plane Parts? - 7 replies
I have run into a few snags on my brides Great Grandfathers hand plane restoration project.

OK... I Admit... I Am So Lost On Hand Planes - 18 replies
I poster a blog a bit ago about my special Christmas gift I received from my Father In-Law (My Most Prized Christmas Gift...). Just in the last couple of days I have finally been able to put my hands on these and get to work. I have come to the conclusion I know less about these than I first feared.

Wax on Projects? - 14 replies
I did some serious homework on waxes last night. I read and read… and stayed up way past my bed time. I learned a good bit about types, application, coloring, etc…. but the one thing I didn’t see was life span of the finish on the product. I know a lot of factors contribute to how long the wax finish will hold its luster like l...

Dovetail Drawer Bottom? - 9 replies
Ok… I know this sounds like a dumb question, but I been racking my head for weeks over this dilemma. I am attempting hand cut dovetails in my latest project for the small drawers.

I was not sure where to put this so I stuck it in here. Long story short I was looking for a place here locally to get my table saw blades sharpened.
