Water based finish for wooden plaques and other small products. - 15 replies

I will be manufacturing a line of wooden laser engraved plaques. The more that I think about it the more that I believe that it would be better to put a nicer finish on them than what I will be able to do with a simple oil finish. My plaques average 8 in. x 16 in. So they are small products in nature. The other projects that I will add to the li...

Is anyone else having problems with the site besides me? - 30 replies

Ever since yesterday the site is acting very weird. It’s hard to explain. It’s like it’s ‘jumping around’, ‘vibrating’, and or ‘flashing in the browser’. Sometimes it just disappears except for the very top. No other websites are doing this in my browser. I’m using Windows explorer and ...

I need a source for 1/16" birch plywood - 9 replies

I have found a good wholesale source for 1/8” and 1/4” birch plywood where I can order 10 to 50 sheets at a reasonable price. The sheets are 5’ x 5’ and they will ship them to my shop by truck. However, when it comes to 1/16” birch plywood I am not running into too much luck. I think this plywood comes from Europe a...

I've put a laser engraver in my shop and am adding on to my shop. - 19 replies

I haven’t been here much over the last month or so because I’ve just been too busy. I’m adding a laser engraver to my shop and I’m building an addition to my shop so that I can keep the engraver away from the saw dust. Unfortunately, I can’t do any woodworking until the new addition is finished because I don’t...

What's the best way to finish cypress for an outside project? - 18 replies

My brother in law bought an old wrought iron bench and the wood is mostly gone. Even though I don’t have the time I agreed to give him a hand on it and I’m not going to charge him a dime because we are pretty close. He wants to do as much of the work as he can so hopefully there is an easy finish that a beginner can put on the wood p...

I need a source for no. 4 brass screws - 15 replies

I need a good source for no. 4 wood screws. Brass round head #4×3/8 threaded all the way is what I would like to find. Flat head might work but they need to be threaded all the way. I’m trying to get by with just a simple drill bit for the pilot hole. If the thread is not full length then the neck will probably cause a problem sinc...

Time of post on the pulse page doesn't seem right - 2 replies

Cricket, ‘the time of post’ column seems messed up. It’s very confusing and also takes up more space. It’s probably and accident but in case it’s not I wish that you would change it back. BTW, ya’ll are doing a great job overall. Thanks. edit: it may also be the personal homepage as well. helluvawreck ak...

I went to the IWF Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday in Atlanta. I laid out on Friday to give my feet a little rest. I was just wondering if anyone else attended to see all of the equipment and supplies. helluvawreck aka Charles

Box hinges - 13 replies

I sure would appreciate some information on sources for box hinges with stops. I don’t have a problem with using the brusso hinges on the more expensive boxes but there is no way to justify them on the less expensive boxes. Thanks in advance for the info. helluvawreck aka Charles

What a great time to sit by the fire and look at woodworking books and magazines. - 27 replies

With the snow in North Georgia this morning it’s a great time to just sit in my armchair in front of the fireplace and look through my collection of books and magazines for project and design ideas. My wife and one of my daughters are also with me. helluvawreck aka Charles

What do you think about G8749 Drum / Flap Sander and Accessories? - 5 replies

Is the G8749 a good sander to have for Intarsia and similar crafts? I also have a Jet oscillating spindle sander. Where do you get the finer grit sanding sleeves and flaps/brushes (220, 320 and above)? Thanks in advance for your help. helluvawreck aka Charles

Speaking of Shops - Take a Look at Chiefwoodworker's Shop - I love it - 8 replies

Chiefwoodworker is a fellow Lumberjock and I have looked his shop over many times since I began to plan my own. I love his shop and he builds beautiful furniture as well. His shop is only 30’ x 30’ but looks much bigger. He has a drawing of his layout and also about 187 pictures of what he does in his shop. He’s very impressive...

My New Shop's Electrical System - What do you think? - 46 replies

After I get my 30’ x 30’ shop dried in I plan on sheeting the inside with plywood. I like to be able to use nails and screws to hang stuff where ever I want to. I’m planning on installing a 200 AMP service (not 3 phase) to the shop that is completely separate of the house. I will mount the box on the surface of the interior ply...

Been to the cellar room 3 times today - tornado warnings. - 20 replies

More tornadoes here. I’ve learned not to mess with tornadoes. When we hear the warning siren my wife and I don’t take chances. We go outside around the corner of our house, open the storm doors, and go down the steps into the cellar room (10’ x 10’) 7’ under the house. I’ve gone down there 3 times today. My wi...
