I need some help, Building a router table with an incra stand using birch and 5 quarter pine and need to know the best type of finish to use. I want a natural finish and really don’t spray a finish on. I am also think I should apply the finish before I put the birch on the the stand. Any suggestions would help.thanks
The one thing that I forgot in the last Blog posting was the money… I was at $800, I spent $350 on the R/C equipment and on friday I bought a Jet 89” Belt Sander & a Dewalt 13” planer for $350. after all of that spending I’m sitting at $100 in the pot. I sold the R/C equipment for $640 after all the fees and the Dewalt planer for $350. So that makes $1090 in the pot but I still have a nice Jet Sander and about 24 planes left. I’m taking all my planes, saws an...
I know a lot of people are on facebook, I have been on there since before a lot of people I know had even heard of it. There are things I really like about it and things I don’t. Just like here on lumberjocks. While lumberjocks is a place to share finished projects and how to blogs, and tool reviews; Facebook is a more moment to moment type of environment. I post my finished projects and some blogs about how I do things, but it struck me that some of you may like to know a little...
Thought I would let all the lumber Jocks know that there is A George Nakashima exhibit at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle WA. It’s a great show with lots to look at the only bad part is you cant take pictures.
I am new to this site, came across it an hour ago or so. Im 19 and started a course in joinery a few months ago, i do a carving course on thursdays. This is my first carving done, in walnut (I designed myself). I am quite pleased with it but would be nice to get some feedback. I hope to post more photos later on in my course.Niki

UPDATE: Looks like I was beat. Congratulations, Shelly!
The planer is all set up. I ran some 1×4 pine through it. Worked very well. Nice and smooth. Some snipe on a few boards. I will adjust the outfeed table tomorrow. I am too tired to do it tonight. My dust collection system is under powered. It works but chips collect in any low spots and corners. The 735 has a blower to help eject chips. I hooked it up to my dust collector. It pressurized my piping system and blew chips out of my jointer, router and miter saw. My dust collection system...

As some or most of you may know, my back has been injured/screwed up since, oh…late July. It didn’t really put a damper on my workshop activities till the beginning of September when I finally succumbed to the pain and sought the help of the local chiropractor. Well, after some x-rays and some scary medical jargon (I miss the good ol’ days when it was simply called a “bad back” instead of something that sounds like a terminal disease!) I was basically put on be...
I bought my current home back in 1999, and I longed to spend a relaxing afternoon “out back”, staring at the city lights and pondering the meaning of life while drinking a frosty beverage. The best place to do that? Why, on a backyard deck! There was a rather large Sugar Maple tree in the yard, but it was in very poor health, and needed removal. Following it’s cut down, and cleanup, along came my dog, and my now ex-wife wanted the cheapest possible fence. Green vinyl an...
