In Bath, Michigan I visited a beautiful operation that has a ton of wood. The owners name is Kelvin and you couldn’t meet a better person. He had bunks of Oak-Red and White, Maple, Ash, Walnut, Cherry, Elm, and even some Crab Apple. He had burls for turners and also other wood for turners.

1812 days ago by kosta | 6 comments »

In this episode I setup the stand to my new skil tablesaw. Most people start off with one of these saws because they are about $120 and theywork ok. Putting the stand together is easy but reading the manual is a pain in the ass because it goes back in forth from english to spanish.I put a piece of cardboard between the saw and the stand to stop all the dust from going ton the floor. I have a full review of this saw on my website at

Sewing Center #2: Stained Poplar using MinWax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner (yellow can)

1822 days ago by SouthpawCA | 11 comments »

I didn’t really listen and I should be spanked!!! I am now going to stain the sewing center. I knew I had to actually condition the wood because it is poplar.

In this case its not I read some of the reviews on lumberjocks and on home on both the ridgid circular saw and the ryobi table saw and I really wasnt convinced that this ...
