Maybe that should be an old age project. Turn (turned) 65 today. Coincidentally, my birthday present is a new mini-lathe. Joyously, according to the tracking software, it was only 25 miles away and on the UPS truck at 5:00 AM. And my wife has stuck with me for 36 years. I am truly a blessed man. Lee

I’m pretty new to LJ and not much of a woodworker. Not that I don’t love it, I do but I’m still learning so I need help from you guys. I’m heading up a Boy Scout high adventure trip for my son’s troop this summer. I’ve got 24 Scouts going canoing in Quetico for 7 days and as part of the adventure, they’re building their own bent shaft paddles. We pretty much have the building process down and are well on the way of making them, but the finish is...
I moved recently and i got some more place for a shop. I am getting some new tools etc to outfit it, slowly but surely! I saw on craigslist a 8 gallon(i thought it was a 4, but i’m not complaining) RIDGID wet/dry vac for 15$i called the guy and today i went to check it out. it works great, and it has a nozzle and hose. just a bit dirty but the suction is good.WHAT A DEAL! does anyone know any attachments that could help it be a makeshift dust management system?

Hello A few years ago … maybe 6 or 7, I bought a box full of curly maple rejected guitar blank backs from Gibson in Nashville. Pieces are miss matched bookmatches, less then 3/8 thick, imperfect offcuts, 6 to 9 inches wide and about 18 inches long. Nice looking wood. Does this count as recyled ? I made sometihing I’d like to enter in the contest and wanted to ask first. Regards DAN
I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D
