A Special Tribute To Niki - 14 replies
I would like to say a special thanks to Niki for the efforts and thinking that goes into his posts. All we see is descriptive pictures and text about a jig or process. What we don’t always think about is what he went through to do that. We aren’t aware of all the time in developing the idea and all the parts involved. We aren’t...

14 Day Wedding Present - 7 replies
When LOML and I decided to get married, we had planned to rent a hall for the reception. About 3 weeks before the wedding, we decided why not just have the whole shebang right in our home. Well, we had about 50 people invited, and one friend was a notary, who would marry us. It was a really neat idea, sort of warm and fuzzy, except for the fact ...

Butt Mortise Plane - 8 replies
This plane was one of my garage sale finds back when I had very little tool knowledge. And it was during that period that I would buy tools that I thought were important to the craft, but not important at the time. There were many tools that I had no idea what they were for, but getting such a good deal (how would I know) I just had to buy. T...

I don’t know what happened or if I missed something, but lately, it seems that there’s a mass posting race going on for some reason. I log on and then go through many pages of posts to find anything. Heck, I even got greeted again. Thanks.

A Very HOT Tip!!! - 6 replies
There’s been a lot of discussion concerning shop safety and how to protect ourselves. There really hasn’t been too much discussion about fire extinguishers. I can’t emphasize enough the value of having one close by. I’ve always kept one in or near the kitchen and garage area, and many in the shop. Knowing how to use one a...

Is WD-40 Dangerous To Use? - 7 replies
When you read the “shower door” part, try it. It’s the first thing that has cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It’s a miracle! Then try it on your stovetop… Viola! It’s now shinier than it’s ever been. You’ll be amazed. The product began from...

The Klemmy Clamp - 6 replies
A clamp that doesn’t get a lot of discussion is the Klemmy clamp from Bessey. I get a lot of use from these. They are a light to medium duty type that are extremely light, easy to use, and has a 4” throat. The cam action allows a gradual pressure that is very controllable..

A $40,000 Diamond Tennis Bracelet - 14 replies
That’s right. Years ago every Sunday, one of the large chain jewelry stores would have a full page ad with one item that was really high priced. One Sunday I saw this ad for a $40,000 diamond tennis bracelet, and a picture of it that was huge. At that point the ad taught me two things: First, that a simple offering but grandeur in nature e...

Stop Asking All The Questions!!! - 15 replies
That’s what he would say right in the middle of something. I would refer to him as a master craftsman. My first shop was in an industrial district with several cabinet and woodworking shops within walking distance. Working late into the night I would hear tools running and it was coming from Werner’s shop. His shop was a few doors do...

What Makes A Craftsman A Master? - 45 replies
Other than the traditional “Masters Guild” type of acceptance, and training this is directed towards general terminology. There are many craftsmen that will never be considered a master. Does that title come with the exposure level of a good craftsman’s work? This question and others are to try and pinpoint the “master...

My Apologies - 3 replies
I offer my apology to any Jock or Jockette offended or displeased with my posting a non woodworking related joke. I’ve tried to tender a range of topics so far that included some techniques that I felt were of some interest. I’m not entirely sure what aspects of woodworking induce a response in the tempo of this forum. It’s dif...

You Can Do It!!! - 7 replies
I read some of these posts and replies that are directed to some type of woodworking that is thought of as “being beyond that persons skills”. That piece your looking at didn’t happen by itself. Someone had to try to do it. There was more than likely a learning curve or mistakes involved in doing something for the first time, b...
