Board width for table top - 5 replies

A few weeks ago, I bought some cherry and walnut from someone here in western PA. The man is in his 80’s and has decided to quit woodworking to devote more time to RC aircraft piloting.

aggressive angle grinder attachment for woodcarving - 7 replies

I joined this web site a couple days ago, and I’ve got my first question. Yesterday, I bought some cherry and walnut planks from an elderly gentleman who is changing his hobbies and moving away from woodworking. While I was at his house, he showed me a tool (an angle grinder attachment) that he used to carve out that area of a chair seat...
