I ‘ve been working with some blue-stained lodge pole pine and I have a few knots with cracks and voids in them. I am thinking of filling the large cracks with some bright blue glass from an old bottle. I plan on crushing the glass to a fine powder (I don’t know how fine to crush), also what kind of adhesive should I use to attach my “glass putty” to my project? Thanks for your suggestions
Hello LJ, Today I hung out with friends, golfed and met Gwyn, who is almost 3. It was a delightful day, but didn’t include any woodworking stuff. Sorry. http://bit.ly/9sJCH9 Brian

Just got back from my neighbor’s house. Scored 120 board feet of 50+ year old white oak floor boards. They are 10 feet long by 1 foot wide, 3/4 thick. They are from a remodeling and there is more to be had. When all is said and done I should have over 300 feet of this material. I have no idea what it must be worth, but I plan on putting to good use. All I have to do is plane off the finish. Any ideas for projects?
I need your help if your a cabinet maker. What size building should I have for a three man cabinet shop? We do traditional face frame cabinetry currently but our current shop is way too small to be very functional. Also, should I build a steel or stick built building? What are the pro’s and con’s with each? Is there anywhere where I can get floor layouts? Maybe even building plans? Anything helps! Thanks!
The bench undercarriage is now together. Glue-ups are by far the most stressful period of any project. I did this in stages. First the legs to the front and back carriage. Then with the front on it’s side, glued the mortises and tenons (titebond III), inserted the shelf pieces unglued, and then (with the wifes help) lifted the back on top to drop into place (with the mallet’s help), then put it on it’s legs, the ratcheted straps to square, then drawbores. Aspect view ...
Hello all. Been a mixed day today. Pist that I have a problem deciding how to mount the motor. My old motor doesn’t have feet along its side, as in the design. Its only mounting points are on the end where the spindle emerges. I’ve discussed this at length in the comments of the last blog entry with Autumn and jm82435 (thank you both for your valuable input) and I’ve decided to take this offline and have a major think. So how to pick myself up. Well the drum glue-up went ...

After blasting out the parts for the new Birdhouse last week on the band saw,The assembly went just as quickly. The parts were taken home, the necessary access hole added, a top post/hanging bracket fashioned, and pilot holes were drilled for the attachment of the slats for the roof.I forgot how much fun building a birdhouse can be!! They’re for the birds, after all, and they will never be overly critical… :)With the assembly finished, it was on to the finishing department… ...
I don’t remember everyone’s name but there was a lot of people there yesterday and we had one heck of a great time. I forgot my camera but Rustic Rick took a bunch of pics he said he would put on as soon as he had time. Dustin again brought his bunches of veneer. Wow, I scored on the wood exchange with a pile of curly maple plus a roll of curly maple veneer, how’s that for lucky. I know David Craig got a board of blood wood that will keep him in inlay for life. plus I gave h...
