The other day I got a check from them to cover the price difference of an item I bought that is now cataloging for less. The amount isn’t much, but the fact that they are paying attention is huge! I had a post a while ...

What the... - 16 replies

So I made a purchase of several hand planes and stuff from Veritas on 6/27 and noticed today 6/29 they are offering free shipping on orders of more than $40 starting today.

SU - 1 reply

I can’t get sketchup to provide a sheets cutting diagram. I have selected 4’x8’ and SU will only list it as though I have selected boards i.e. 6”x8’ etc… then diagram displays multiple pieces as such. That would be fine if I were using biscuits, but no a full sheet. I have looked at many posts and screen shots and selected the shown items, bu...

Project bf - 2 replies

I have a request for any and all who wish to share the bf used on finished projects. I think this would be helpful for lesser experienced woodworkers to determine their project costs. Many times I see a pic of something that looks like it might be fun to tackle, but wonder what the cost would be to build. Thanks.

Building with pine - 17 replies

I am finding lots of info related to building with pine, but little on what size stock to use. Home De-po(t) has that crappy wet 3/4”, and after digging through the pile I might fine a few usable boards, but by the time I get them home, they are warped, cupped, and twisted… What do you all use? Seems to me the Doug Fir 2×6 is more ...
