A few weeks ago I traveled back east for Memorial Day and to bring home some of my Dad’s things from his old shop. His cabinet bench is a real treasure to me and its nice to have it here in my shop now. What are your prized treasures that have been handed down from that special person who started you on the woodworking path?

Going to Woodworking School #5: Day Two Con't

11-04-2009 02:12 AM by John Fleming | 2 comments »

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2009 How Dry is Dry Water occurs in wood in two places, First, there’s the free water that fills the inside of the wood cells. That’s like water in a bucket. Second, water also infiltrates the cell walls. That’s called bound water. Imagine squeezing a piece of cotton Cheeses cloth until all the free water is drained away. The cloth though, remains damp because the material continues to contain moisture-the bound water. When wood contains bound water it ...

One or both of these sent me into a severe asthma attack that put me in ICU and an over night stay in the hospital. I was released the next day and currently on steroids for five days and a Doctor follow up first of this week. The purpose of starting this bold is to share information and to seek ...

Weekend Bench #4: Rounding 2nd

12-30-2008 05:51 AM by dsb1829 | 2 comments »

03-03-2015 08:57 PM by Friedel1 | 2 comments »

The idea came from a neighbor. He had an old “bird feeder” very rot and yet functional. I offered him this bird box rebuild. I then built many of them:-)First of beech. Ha! Evil mistake! Well, at that point I knew even less about wood properties, but that beech is so bends I never expected.So I built one from the remnants of a corner seat in oak, 19 mm, finger-jointed. As always, not screwed, not nailed … .just dowelled. The Domino system by Festool is just great.A carpenter swears by Lamello...
