Saw Shy - 12 replies
On January 2nd I almost cut two fingers off. They have healed, the scars are irritating but more and more feeling is coming back as time passes. I blamed the POS saw but equal blame should have gone to me. A friend loaned me his rigid contractor saw so I could try it out before making a decision. It is a nice little saw, smooth, and handled ...

Record #7...Did I do well? - 6 replies
I don’t know anything about this jointer, except that it appears to be in pretty good condition. It is obviously cleaned up as I suspect there are some very shallow rust pitting near the blade opening. I paid $75 dollars for this and 2 13CF scuba tanks that are only 2 years old. The tanks are in immaculate condition and worth some cas...

Working with quarter inch stock ?? - 3 replies
I am working on a small lamp project and as usual I decided the base had to be something really special. Well special means money and the thicker that special gets the higher the price. So, I was looking on ebay and found some quarter inch redwood burl guitar blanks. Super sexy wood and not priced out of my budget. Problem is I have never wo...

Have a new to me dust collector...Now what? - 4 replies
A local business has sold out because the husband died. It was obvious I could have gotten the dust collector for a lot less than what I did but I just did not feel right doing that to the widow. Word has it she will have a struggle. So now I own a 1 hp delta dust collector. I know I should put a 2 hp motor on it but was wondering if it was ...

Soaking or steaming - 25 replies
I am wanting to try my hand at a small project using bent wood lamination. Something small to see if I like the process, and get a feel for what the uber dry weather here might do to it. I have been watching a few videos and I have seen both techniques. I have no idea if the wood I have is kiln dried or air dried. When I asked at the lumbe...

Lots of pain but I still have all my fingers - 28 replies
I would like to blame the saw but it was all my fault. I was squaring up some bass wood on my Skil model POS. The problem is I was in a hurry and did not use my push stick. Just a piece of scrap. I had a hunch something was going to happen and it did as I was moving my left hand away. The blade caught and I felt my left hand pulled in. I d...

Life happened and a project was put on the back burner. I will be picking it up again but will most likely finish while it is still winter.

So what do you think ........ would say? - 5 replies
I have seen a bunch of projects linked to prominent woodworkers who are no longer with us. I wonder if people would be making these links if those folks were around?

Portable/table easel - 2 replies
This question is for artists or someone who has made one of these. My sister-in-law has started painting and seems to enjoy it. They do not have room to set up a dedicated easel in their small place, and 4 little one running around would not be good. So, I thought I would make an easel/storage box for her but am not sure how to finish the i...

Mantel question - 6 replies
We have a fire place plugged with a pellet insert. It is in the middle of a large expanse of gray tile with the ugliest hearth in the world. I am not going to rip out the hearth because that will be a MUCH bigger job than I want to do right now, plus I would then have to replace it with something. My wife and I were wanting to put up a mant...

The official DOH!!!!!!! I screwed up thread - 51 replies
In another thread I jokingly said I could participate in a thread about screwing things up. I got to thinking about it while surfing the projects section. I can’t be the only one that messes up. There are lots and lots of threads about successful builds and restorations. Seems wrong to not have an area where we air out the dirty litt...
