I picked up a Freud biscuit joiner yesterday from a friend for $20. Great condition, works great. Looking forward to putting it to good use.
I know that biscuits do not add ‘real’ value to edge to edge joints (but times it just feels right). What about jointing edge of plywood if you want to make a walnut edge? I’m concerned that the edge grain of the plywood would soak up all the glue and starve the joint? Do any of y’all use biscuits in this condition?
I left off with the top being glued to some MDF risers. This morning I finish sanded it and put on two coats of lacquer. I will oil the walnut but I didn’t want to Maple any darker so I figured I’d lacquer it so when it’s all built up, the oil wont get into the maple top. Step 5: Finishing the Shelf I ripped the walnut border to length and laid it out to get an idea where to cut the biscuits. The center piece was a very clear piece of face grained walnut, so when I wen...
The frame is easy to make out of pine, fir or any soft wood. We want to make it look precision yet old at the same time. The hardest part is convincing the sun to age your project for you 2000 years in about a few days time. The sun owed me for a few sunburns soooo… Just kidding, we’ll get to the aging part later.I remembered a frame I had seen at the museum in grade school. I jumped in my truck that weekend and went to the museum to look at ancient lacquered furniture. I took not...

I went to a auction this weekend. The add said it had woodworking tools. I picked up a Delta universal tennoning jig #34-184 brand new in the box. It had not even been opened. I snatched it up for $45.00. I also picked up a Dewalt 682 bisquit joiner for $45.00 also it had not been used but only a couple of times. I also pick up a older craftsman 6” by 36” bed. It only has a little bit of surface rust on it. It will clkean up nice. I check the bed out this morning, the bed is flat ...
This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...
Does anyone know how I should go about selling my husband’s tools? I know that they are too heavy to ship and I don’t know of too many woodworkers in this area of northeast Arkansas. How do I price the tools? Can someone give me advice on how to get this accomplished as I am contemplating moving out of state. Thanks for your help.
Having recently returned from my first visit to an on line (?) purchase with which I have falled in love and has to be a wood workers dream. 3 yrs old with thermopane windows and doors,instant hotwater heater,2 baths etc. The inside is compleat to the point that the contractor did what was necessary as part of the house, loft, stairs etc. the prev. residents started to finish things inside while living there and while there are plenty of good intentions…consider a bath room shelf...
