I own 4 different tools that require a drill bit chuck key (large drill press, small drill press, lathe and a hammer drill). Everyone requires its own chuck key and none of them are interchangeable. Couldn’t we have some standardization on chuck keys?
We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...
Pete has been building my Bass guitar for the last 6 months with my madrone top. Just wanted to show if off. This is the newest pics. It still needs to be sanded down and polished but it is coming along great!
Here’s a quick poll for everyone. Almost all cordless drills now come equipped with a clutch with up to 20+ settings. Does anyone out there use them???? I keep mine set on the most powerfull setting, or on my drills, the setting with the picture of the drill bit. If I need some finesse, in driving a screw for example, I just take my time and feather the trigger. What are your thoughts? I will post the results after I get enough responses. Please answer with the following answers: A. ...

It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...
In this episode I install the 3 back pannels. I attached them with glue and screws .
Hello LJ – I’ve received a very warm welcome, and many people have left comments in my profile. It’s nice to find a community like this where people are actually polite and aren’t laughed at for being that way. I’d like to enlist your help if possible. I am in the process of reviewing my current tool kit, and I’ve come across a few things I’d like to replace, but can’t find a good source for. The first thing is Screwdrivers. I have more...
In this episode I stain all the parts for the book case and then Istart on the assembly. The assembly took a lot longer then I thought soI only used some of that footage.

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.
