Help with Wipe-On Poly over Paint - 57 replies

Hey guys. I’m trying to finish this little nightstand I built for my fiance for one of her birthday presents. She is not into fine woodworking and likes the “ikea” look – that is, no wood grain/looks like plastic.

How's this for a Bench Vise??? - 11 replies

Hey guys. Here is another gem in “my” workshop! :) A very old bench vise. It is not mounted correctly. You’ll notice the long rod extending down towards the floor. That rod is supposed to be put into the concrete for more stability/support. Instead it is just attached to the bench. He actually has two of these. One is i...

"My" woodworking shop, and tools..... - 19 replies

Hey guys and gals. I had posted a blog about some planes I found in my neighbor’s shop that I wanted to restore/clean up so I could use them. Some people noticed some saws hanging on the wall in the background of that blog, and wanted to see them. So i’m posting them here along with other pictures of “My” shop. The sh...

Need Help on project. (part two)...... - 2 replies

Thanks everyone for all the help with my last forum topic – trying to figure out a design for a chiropractic adjusting table. You guys came up with a lot of good points, and at the end I just realized that it wasn’t going to work (atleast not for now). Even though I liked how the last design looked, I think this will be a lot stron...

Need help on project. Joinery...... - 21 replies

Hey everyone. For those that dont know, I am going for my doctorate in chiropractic (unfortunately that means hardly any time for woodworking…except at night in my dreams). Chiropractic adjusting tables are not cheap, and tons of students are looking to buy them. So I figured maybe this would be my chance to build something and maybe se...

In my continuous dreaming of hopefully one day owning a top-of-the-line woodworking shop, I’m constantly looking up tools, and trying to figure out what is the BEST out there. Unfortunately with the VAST number of companies offering “top-of-the-line” tools, its hard to determine which one really is at the top, mainly because e...

Yesterday I studied from 8am until almost 1am...

I was on tonight and saw a forum/blog topic about someone who had a problem. They screwed up a project and was looking for ideas to fix it. I was just about to write him/her a pretty solid idea that no one else had mentioned that I think would have worked great – unfortunately I am blocked by this individual, so I couldnt. The only re...
