What happened to Tommy Mac and Rough Cut? Our local station is running episodes from 2012. I looked at WGBH Boston web site and it looked like they just have the old episodes, nothing recent. Did he get the axe? (pun intended ;-) )

Paul Sellers dressing out a board by hand - 13 replies
I just watched both parts of Paul Sellers dressing out a board from a log by hand. I am wondering how many of the hand plane guys go all the way from rough cut to finished stock by hand? It seems like the time involved would be a great deterrent.

The GFCI protection tested good, but it wasn’t good enough to save the mouse. He got the electrical chair for merely trespassing!

Best way to refinish 30 year old cabinets - 16 replies
Hello LJs, I am wondering about and looking for ideas to refinish the bath vanity and cabinet. They were made of birch plywood and what looks to be poplar or alder for the face frame. I doubt it is pine. Finished too well ;-) They have been stained a medium walnut color and have had a satin finish. We do not want to darken them. They do a ...

Am I missing something here? - 29 replies
I noticed these 2 boxes of walnut on eBay. By my calculations , with shipping, the cost is $8.59 and $6.49 /bdft respectively. Why not just go to the lumber store and get what you need if you are paying that much? Just curious?
