You might be a lumberjock - 9 replies
If you ever cut your tablesaw fence and wondered where the sparks are coming from, you might be a lumberjock. This is almost as good as when I drilled into the jaws of my lathe chuck with a forstner bit and said, “What’s that noise?” The good news. It’s still early. I got all day to top this.

Segmented spindles - 9 replies

Either that or I don’t know how to google as good as I think I can. I have some ideas that need it. A solid spindle. To be turned between centers. Let’s say I decide I n...

Yellowheart - 14 replies
This is my first time to use it, and I have questions about the color. Is there something I can do to keep it yellow? I know to keep it out of direct sun, maybe a finish with UV protection? Any other tricks? I bought a small piece for something I’m working on. 2” x 6” x 6” It arrived with a big crack in it. I wonder ...

I'm sick - 18 replies

I asked if it was for sale. They didn’t know. They took my name and number and called back today and told me what they wanted. I dr...

Back from the dead - 11 replies
This is how it looked when it followed me home. Craigslist has been good to me. After being rust o rated. My operating theory was – If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Everything got cleaned, checked, lubed, adjusted as necessary, but I kept the patina. Patina, that’s a nice word , why doesn’t it apply to peo...

Round glass for picture frames? - 10 replies
I’ve spent a big part of the day looking for some. I went to Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. I’ve googled, looked at ebay and amazon. Can’t find any. I did find oval and convex, no flat round glass. I saw many round picture frames for sale. Glass or plexiglass is fine. I don’t want to cut anything. Non glare would be ...

Paint and poly on basswood? - 6 replies
I have a project going that I would like to paint and the spray polyurethane on. I wanted a white wood, basswood is as close as I could find. It’s off white with no dark streaks. When I apply clear poly or lacquer on the scraps it darkens it too much for what I want. I tried painting scraps with white paint and the spray poly over that....
