I have been useing Frued Blades on my table saw—I especially like the Glue Line Rip blade. The only problem with these is getting them sharpened. Freud will not sharpen even their own blades and to send them out is an adventure. I lost two blades to poor sharpening by reputable companies. No one seems to know how to sharpen these and the sales reps have no solution. Does anyone have a suggestion except to use another brand.

My wife teaches piano lessons in the living room of our home. She has a lot of sheet music that get scattered around. She doesn’t want to put a large filing cabinet in the living room . . . something about being too tacky. I tried my best to explain that the paint is usually dry when you buy them. She just gives me that look and asked me to build her something to match the little cherry bookcase that sits in the living room. Basic box is done . . . finished trim on the sides. It...

Thoughts on Plywood Quality and Lumberyard Management Right up front, let it be said, I have never managed a lumberyard.But I’m certainly no stranger in management, having managed business all my long life and continue to do so.The main subject is plywood quality with lumberyard management as a subtext. Plywood Quality Yesterday I called a lumberyard that’s only a mile or so away. It’s an old family concern and they’re my neighbors, since we live in a community with only one traffic ...
I got an email from http://lumberjocks.com/didierld this person today: didierld. This guy (or girl) is a horrific spammer.. beware do not reply to this guy unless you want to do as I did- tell him to GET OFF THIS SITE. I don’t know how to report this person to the moderator?

Time to add a boy skater into the mix, I figured. This is Pierre. Although Pierre is not a child, he still looks like he may have a little bit of mischief left in him. I can see him zipping around the ice, weaving through the couples holding hands and wobbly children at an amazing speed. Better be careful, Pierre! You don’t want to knock anyone over! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures I hope you all enjoy him! :)
