What Type of finish do you use? Finishing is a common question among woodworkers. I know for me when I first started finishing it was almost dreadful. I loved to build things but when it came to finishing I almost wanted to leave it bare wood. I built a oak dart board, I guess you could call it a case several years back and when it came time to finish it I ruined it. I applied two many coats two fast and didn’t take the propper steps to apply a quality finish. When it was done I thr...

Good Customer Support

05-05-2010 05:21 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I have a Jet JJP-10BTOS 10” Combo Jointer-Planer, and I noted last night that the infeed and outfeed tables weren’t co-planer. There were no instructions in the manual on how to adjust them, so I called the 800# in my manual and after only about 4 minutes got someone on the phone who helped me in under a minute (e-mailing me the information I needed). Very nice experience from WMH Tool Group (makes of Jet, Powermatic, and others). Oh, and here is how you do it:

My wife and I often visit our families in the mountains of western North Carolina. We are planning on visiting next weekend and I spoke with my father today and he suggested that we go for a hike while up to look for Morel mushrooms and ramps (a type of wild leak). In the area of the Appalachian Mountains I grew up ramps are a tradition this time of year. As a young boy I remember hiking in the mountains in search of ramps to dig for family get-togethers. Ramps have such a strong flavor ...

Earlier this week I took a tour of the Forrest Products Laboratory in Madison Wisconsin. The Madison Woodworkers’ Guild, which I joined recently arranged for the tour.

Maybe one of the other members will share.This June 4, the FPL will celebrate their 100th anniversary and they will have a public open house on June 26th. It would be worth the trip.The Lab tests all sorts of wood products, from nano-fibe...

I have been working on a podcast for a few weeks and just received approval today. After doing a search for High Rock Woodworking and also just woodworking in itunes I was able to find the podcast, so it looks like a good start. In the podcast I will be sharing tips and stories from fellow woodworkers. I still have some details to work out (like adding a picture) but I am making a good start. Please stop by and give me your comments, even if it is a little constructive criticism. Also,...
