Didn’t find any related content so thought I’d throw this out.I keep a lot of my tools and hardware (o.k. and old magazine issues, and reference books, and sandpaper, and…well you get it) in filing cabinets.I don’t use the cheap ones, if they aren’t commercial grade, full extension, heavy duty slides I won’t get them.I don’t pay retail, it seems the new paperless business has a lot of companies getting rid of thiers. I get them at thrift stores, garag...

Here is a tip for some jocks who have to do a lot of routing on smaller and quick projects, especially if they are making small signs. This tip can be used on larger projects as well with a little adaptation. I learned of this from a little old sign maker about 30 years ago. I met him at a craft show….

After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...
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.
