Shelf standards vs pins - 10 replies
I’m working on a pie safe and need to decide on the shelf support system. I could use fixed shelves, but would rather them be adjustable.

I GOT WOOD! - 5 replies
Well I did! My ex sister-in-law called a few weeks ago and asked if I would be interested in building a pie safe for her mother. I gladly accepted the task for the cost of materials and a couple jars of spirits produced close to her house. Her father was a logger and had an old shipping container behind his shop where he threw ‘scraps and...

Spraying epoxy paint - 3 replies
It’s not wood finishing, but it is finishing. I’m thinking about spraying a bath tub/ shower with epoxy paint. What I’ve found online is that there are epoxy paints specifically designed for tube, but I’ve looked at garage floor paint and can’t find a difference. I’ll pick up HF spray guns and just use the com...

Drawer slides - 4 replies
I’m in the process of planning a small tool chest for my layout tools. Looking at drawer slides, do I need them? My largest drawer is ~22 1/2” X 3” X 11”. Nothing heavy will be in them, maybe 2-3lb tops. Can I get away with wax, adhesive nylon, or just wood on wood?

Another CL find - 3 replies
Once again will power has eluded me and I am proud to add another fine tool to my collection. Found it on CL for the worthy sum of $15.00. Its a Dunlap labeled for Sears, made by AA Engineering. I think its from somewhere around 1951. The bearings are tight and everything seems to be fully functional. Can’t wait to build a base...

Shopless Tablesaw - 1 reply
It’s a good saw, a solid saw. Through no fault of its own, it has found itself without a shop to make dust in. It once had a great shop, with a person that loved it and cared for it. It still has a fence, and miter gauge, as well as several blades and 2 basic dado sets. A new shop with a new person, and maybe some extensions on the sides w...

First carving project - 3 replies
After a productive day in the shop yesterday, I awoke with an urge to play hooky from work, so the call was made. (Not something I’ve done before) Anyway, I finished the skirts and end vise on my bench, mounted a fence on the band saw and decided to play. I have a table with ball and claw feet that was started, but only one leg wa...

Productive day in the shop - 1 reply
Off work early last night (0300 actually), so I got more play time today than expected. Decided the shop needed some much overdue attention. Mounted a lumber rack, french cleated another section of wall, and milled the skirts for my Veritas bench that I aquired. Off to work for 24 hours tomorrow so I’m hoping to finish the skirts friday or...

Miller Falls Miter box - 0 replies
Stopped by the local junk auction to day for a presale rumage. Found a Miller Falls model 74, size 2 1/2 miter box. NO welds, or other damage. Everything moves freely. Just needs a good clean up and pick a saw. Got it for $40, tried $20, but they’ve been good to me in the past so I didn;t argue. Any suggestions on a saw, or info on...
