I need some advice on the best way to upholster a box. It’s going to be approx 15w x 12l x 12h. I am going to use a water resistant vinyl. I plan on padding it under the vinyl. I would very much like to make the staples or nails are invisible as possible. Any and all advice appreciated! Milo

Just curious if anyone has seen these videos or not. I have a lot of respect for Bib Lang’s co-worker, Christopher Schwarz (yeah, I know, who doesn’t), and wanted to know if anyone had first hand knowledge of these dvds. Thanks, Milo

Since I need to epoxy them in, I’m not too worried about it, I’m hoping it will fill nicely (I HOPE!) Here’s my main question. I’ve got a quart...

Hey gang, I want to make a V-Belt Sander, and I am at the stage where I am making the drum. I think I am going to make small circles out of 3/4” MDF and glue them up on a steel pin. I’ve feel really good about the other aspects, but the drum has me a bit nervous. There seem to be two schools of thought on the best way to make...

Magazines and periodicals. WHY do you read them? - 15 replies
Hey Folks, I’ll ask the question that’s been asked 1000 times on 100 boards, what magazines and periodicals do you read regularly, but more importantly, WHY?

Just wondering if anyone has successfully made a Home-made Shopsmith Horizontal Drum Sander. I want to make one using a Block bearing set into the lath endstock & the chock to hold the drum. I figure I can do this is I don’t get too crazy with the size of the drum. 18” maybe? Plus I’m not going to try for a thickness st...

Woodworking Magazines on itunes, amazon... - 3 replies
Just out of curiosity, has anyone heard if the bigger woodworking magazine (PW, FWW, WOOD, AW, etc.) have made any plans to publish an digital version for the Kindle, iPad, et al?

Drill press help! My ignorance is showing! - 7 replies
Yesterday the chuck on my older delta drill press fell off. Having only had my Shopsmith as a drill press in the past, I expected to just put it back on using a set screw. NOPE. No set screw, no nuthin’! What keeps it on? Could someone please enlighten me about how to put the chuck back on? Thank you! Milo
