Is this a maple? - 22 replies
This is on craigslist for free. It says it’s maple. If it is what kind do we think it is. I doubt it’s silver maple based on my experience, but it could be. It’s the most common around here. Bark just doesn’t look like it to me. What do you think?

Parts from Grizzly fit Buffalo band saw? - 4 replies

Curling! - 20 replies
Ok, who’s from curling country. I love to watch it, but i hate to see the US do so poorly at it. I do understand that with teams like China the players have no other job but to curl all day, while our teams have full time jobs and are raising families. Maybe we need to improve our relations with Canada and learn more from them. Oh well...

My first time getting some walnut milled. - 9 replies
I’ve had pine and oak milled before, but never walnut. Last week a neighbor came to me and said that he had a walnut tree that has been lying at an angle ever since we had a tornado 8 years ago. He asked if I wanted it. I got 2 logs about 6’ long. Then there was a tree across the road from my house that went down in the same stor...

My dust collector/separator - 6 replies
After a lot of looking at what other people have built and seeing what I could buy, I built this today. I used a 20 gallon trash can, some MDF, two 3” flu pipe elbows, and two screw on connectors from Rockler. I made a round piece of MDF one inch bigger than the trash can and one piece that just fits inside the can. The smaller one was ...

!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/muin65h.jpg! Every time I visit this attraction I have to come and look at this shop for a while, even if they are not doing anything at the time.

Routers with lift integrated. - 27 replies
I would like to get a new router that I can dedicate to my table. I have looked at the Milwaukee and Triton 3 1/4 routers which have the feature that you can raise and lower from above the table. I’m leaning toward the Triton, but I’m concerned about the 1/4 collect reducer. Most of my bits are 1/4”. Is the reducer designed...

The corners are Swedish coped and the logs are fitted together in the Scandinavian scribe method where the upper log is scribed to fit the shape of the log below.

I just bought my first baltic birch. I am not short at over 5’ 10”, but I can barely move the stuff around my shop. Who ever thought to make this stuff 5 by 5 must have been very tall.
