Ouch! That Smarts, I mean it still Smarts!!!! Even though I had surgery on Monday, my fingers still hurts like helk. Surgery was successful, they had a hard time waking me up, I have sleep apnea, so they were shaking me and hollering at me to wake up every 5 minutes. So I was in Post Op a little longer than normal but thats OK. I eventually got home and had some coffee and I was good to go. Today I get to see the Dr’s handywork, I have not seen my hand since my wife changed the dressing...

-updated 2/4/2015 Good blades are analogous to good tires on a high performance car…they can ultimately determine or limit the resulting end performance. There are a number of different factors that should be considered in saw blade selection. Decent quality is essential or you’re sunk from the beginning, so skip the cheapos even if they’re a “good deal”. Two inferior saw blades that cost the same as one decent saw blade are still inferior. It’s sort of like ...
I recently had someone ask me why not make my hinges square since I was planing the back side of them flat. Truth is I considered it, but could not get past the problem of the hinge jamming into the box as it rotated. If you look closely at the picture below, you can see how the corner of a square hinge rotates down into the imaginary box in the picture. Anyone have any ideas?

Well, I been hanging around here at Lumber Jocks for going on a year now. I have learned so much from so many, and can honestly say I owe a lot of what I know today to the sharing of knowledge here. So after attempting my latest “Exploration” into the wild world of woodworking I figured this would be a good a time as any for me to pass along a little blog on how I did my “Dreaded Inlays” ..... Long story short, I was hit up by a coworker asking me if I could build h...
A few months ago I had read an article about ebonizing wood with steel wool and vinegar. Awhile back I tried this and absolutely nothing happened. I never even tried again. Ebonizing is a stain of sorts I guess. I also have heard there are several ways of doing this. The reason the original article caught my eye was because I sure as hell don’t have the money to buy Ebony (wood), and I am forever wanting or needing dark/black wood for my projects and I do not like to use paint, to the ...
