321 days ago Martin announced that we had reached a membership of 8000. At that time I predicated that by the end of the year we would reach 15,000. As you cans see by Martins announcement earlier My calculations were were at least a day to a day & a half off. I really do have to apologize for my computation error.Congratulations to Martin and this fine site.
Thanks for the fond welcome aborad! I do a fair amount of woodworking and enjoy all the aspects of all sectors. I enjoy carving, turning, ban saw boxes, scroll saw projects. I wish I had more time to devote to all the projects that are on the drawing board and honey do list but my job takes a fair amout of time from my daily life. I will be retireing next year and I can hardly wait. There is just something about being in one’s shop the hurry up world goes away. So thanks again for the ...

I have finished building the wall that separates the “shop” from the downstairs office. It went together rather easily. I’m not a professional framer by any means, but how can you really mess up a small wall like this? I got the 38” door from the discount section of home depot, the trim surrounding one side was damaged. I paid $30 for the prehung door. Studs 16” on center… so far unfinished drywall on one side and insulation on the other. I’m ...
Hey There All I have several kiln dried Red Maple slabs ranging from 4” X 24” X 48” to 4” X 36” X 84” is there a market to sell these slabs?
Why a sharpening stationI don’t know about you, but no matter how much I love sharp tools I hate sharpening. I’m not sure if its the time it takes, the set up and back up, or the fine black metal dust that seems to stick to my hand for days, but I just can’t seem to get excited about. My plan to help to overcome this is a dedicated sharpening station. One set up, ready to go, so I can walk over, sharpen and go back to work.(Sharpening station by Tom Fidgen featured in Fine...
Wednesday was a bad day. The Bad As I was rummaging through my supply of wood, I started to notice some dead beetles. No, not the ones from England. These looked liked they had fallen dead into some of my Pearwood bowl blanks, now dry after a couple of years of sitting. I as I got closer to discovering the source, I started finding living bugs. “This really sucks”, I said to myself, minus a few explicatives. It did not take me long to find the source. It was that reall...
