Help Identifying Species of Wood #1: Need an ID on Yellowish wood that smells like cows please!

08-04-2011 12:23 AM by KnotCurser | 21 comments »

I need some help! A couple of weeks ago, our State sent their minions around to prune all of the growth back from the sides of our roadways. Overall they do a good job – they actually prune rather than slash and hack. They did take down an entire HUGE tree that was growing WAY too close to the corner of our main intersection, which was a good thing as well. They also left most of the larger sections of wood cut into 3-5 foot sections! I grabbed a piece today as it looked ver...

Healing Hand Journal #3: The Recovery ***Warning Graphic Pics***

08-01-2016 11:52 PM by chaneg | 5 comments »

I woke up in the post op care area in extreme pain. I remember telling the nurse over and over, “it hurts.” She quickly got more pain medicine into my IV. I looked down at my hand and saw both fingers were individually wrapped up. The first thing I did was put my wrapped up index finger next to the one on the other hand and compared the length. It looked long enough to still all be there, so I was a little relieved. When I was awake enough to move, they took me back to my ...

Garage Remodel #9: Adding 5/8" drywall to ceiling

08-07-2016 04:01 AM by Holbs | 7 comments »

Going about this solo with no help. Rented Home Depot drywall lift. Each sheet is 4’x12’ 105lb 5/8” Fire-X. 10 sheets total. Had HD deliver 10 sheets as I have no reliable method to transport 1,000lbs of 12’ drywall. Took down lights and electrical faceplates. Added an extra 220v 10/2 wire since I have a home for my 220v 3HP Grizzly DC, and 2 extra 110v 12/2 wire runs along a far wall (thought best to have the outlets there when I sheetrocked ceiling before too l...

Board Game Travel Case #3: Starting Over

08-31-2011 07:09 AM by ChadR | 0 comments »

I decided to go back and redo the exterior walls. I wanted to learn how to use my router anyways so I thought I should start here. I am not sure whats its call but I make grooves for the shelving units to fit into as well as the front face of the case. I was originally just going to have it set in place and clasp onto the front but thought it would look nice if it had a channel to rest into. The router works great and I think i got the hang of it. So far everything is coming out much nicer th...

New Toys #1: Planer , Jointer, Belt/ Spindle Sander

08-12-2016 02:34 AM by Jerome | 4 comments »

I was fortunate enough to catch a few deals on tools that I have been wanting. I was doing a CL search for a jointer and was almost sold on a Jet 6” jointer for $450, with a minimum amount of $400. The same night i looked a bit further distance away (75mi) and found a 6” Powermatic 54A for $500. No blades, no mobile base, No accessories. I picked it up early the next morning. The was a 20”Jet planer for $1200 and a Grizzly 15” for 800, but they weren’t budg...

General Finishes WTF

09-15-2011 02:30 PM by Bill Akins | 5 comments »

A good friend of the wood working community, Marc Spagnoulo aka The Wood Whisperer, was testing General Finishes new product, Wood Turners Finish (WTF). Yes that’s what they call it. He doesn’t do many turnings and ask if I was up for testing the product and writing a review. I was very excited about doing this. Here is the link to the article on his site: has his review of wiping it onto a board and then m...

Performax/Jet 16-32 plus - Jetmax, PerforJet, PerJetMax,..... frankenstein tool gloat

08-16-2016 02:41 AM by Mike_D_S | 4 comments »

So I’ve had the Performax 10-20 plus for a while and really liked it, but in the back of my head I’ve been sort of thinking a bigger one would be nice. I happened to be browsing CL and came across a guy selling a Performax 16-32 plus with stand, extension tables and a 3/4 HP Delta dust collector for $600 last Friday. I went by to look and it was clean and everything ran like it should, so I took it. I figured that parting out the dust collector I’d be looking at $500 fo...

Handcut Dovetails

10-01-2011 06:10 PM by Uriel7 | 5 comments »

I’ve finally took the plunge to hand cutting dovetails. I used scrap 2×4 blocks to work on. The 1st joint’s tail is a bit oversized, but I think joints 2 and 3 worked out fairly well. The satisfaction of having a dovetail joint slip together with a snap is just awesome. Joint 2 went together the easiest and fastest. My goal is to have 10 good dovetails made on scraps before I start building storage chests. Joint 1 was purposely cut undersized so I could use a rasp...
