Can I soften cured CA glue? - 12 replies

It is my practice, not sure why, to put a few drops of CA glue in the screw holes for hinges and other hardware on final assembly. Not sure if someone recommended it or if it’s my own idea. My thinking is that it helps protect the wood from the cutting action of the screw threads over time preventing them from loosening. Anyway, I have...

I don’t need Photobucket (except for this one time use) . I have the patterns and have made all the parts for a Sinister Type Cutting Board. And now it’s glue up time. I can’t see anywhere how see/learn to accomplish this step without buying a subscription to Photobucket. Here’s a picture of the jig/sled I made a wit...

JessEm Clear Cut Question - 8 replies

This is a question for JessEm Clear Cut Stock Guides owners.I’m thinking about upgrading my router table. One of my considerations is adding the JessEm Clear cut stock guides but I have a question I have been unable to find an answer to. Do the guides hold the stock down tightly to the table as well as the fence?

Universal width Resaw fence - 13 replies

To eliminate the hassles of constant blade changing, I have two band saws, one with a narrow set of blades for curved work and one dedicated to resawing. It was still a bit of a pain to change the height of the resaw fence to keep the upper bearings close to the material for a variety of width boards. I don’t remember where I saw this idea but...

Where should I drive to for great Black Walnut at a good price - 5 replies

Here in southern california, great walnut at a good price is… impossible to get. I’ thinking about a road trip to Missouri? Iowa? Where? And picking up a few (3-4) hundred board feet. I’m thinking a sawmill moreso than a retail lumber yard. Where should I go? A recommendation for a Specific person or mill would be greatly...

Banners blocking my view - 15 replies

I’m having a hard time believing the site is doing this on purpose. I understand the need but these are no ordinary pop ups or sideline banners. These banners are (a) blocking out parts of the pictures. (B) there is no way to move them out of the way or close them. They are blocking me (members?) from seing sometimes critical aspects o...

Has anyone improved the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide System? - 4 replies

I’ve been successfully using the Mk.II for several years. I like this jig a lot. Sharpening and honing take quite a bit longer than free hand sharpening but I’m getting my chisel and plane irons really sharp with the Mk.II. I’m sure if I devoted the time and focus I could perfect the free hand method and save time. But, I’m very happy w...

Are these logs good for anything? - 7 replies

I have three big trees that must be removed as they have become a safety risk. (Falling down)Here are photographs of the trees. They are some kind of pine I think. The trunks are about 80” in circumference and the branches are around 36” each. There is a lot of wood here. Does anyone know what the wood is? If it’s useful can I sor...

What kind of hinge do I need? - 3 replies

I’m building a Greene and Greene Blanket Chest It’s pretty much done. The lid breadboard ends protrude ¼” from the hinge edge of the top. Hopefully the pics explain it better. I’m afraid the hinges I planned to use don’t allow much meat on the outer most screw when I move the knuckle out far enough for the ends of the breadboard ends to clear...

Saw bench - 1 reply

My work bench for 25 years was an old bookshelf, turned on its side with two 3/4” slabs of plywood for a top and a record quick release vise. Then I built a Roubo bench. Wow, I can’t believe how much better a solid, unmovable bench works. I also wanted to build a Moxon vise and my wife got me the Benchcrafted hardware for Christma...

Glue up glue failure - 10 replies

I’m building (again) the Darrell Peart Greene and Greene inspired Blanket Chest. I’m using some recently purchased Mahogany I got from a guy on Graigslist who got it from an estate sale. I don’t know the city of origin data on the wood but it’s nice dark evenly red without any “Stripe” and dense. Around here that’s pretty nice Mahogany. What...

Surely Someone sells these - 11 replies

I have four Horton Brasses hinges in Antique brass to install, four screws per hinge. They came with slotted screws. They only sell slotted screws on their website. I’ve just spent 45 minutes searching the net for # 8 antique brass flat head Phillips head screws. It seams no one sells them except one site! And they require a $15 minimu...

replacement Grizzly Band Saw bearings - 10 replies

I have had the Grizzly 16” Bandsaw Model G1073 for decades. It’s been a great saw and a cast iron beast. The lower wheel bearings are sounding pretty rough and I think need replacing. Grizzly doesn’t make the parts any longer so I need an alternative supplier. I don’t know jack about bearings, specifying, sizing, remov...

dissapointing pop! - 10 replies

Happy new yearA few years ago I made a headboard with shop sawn quilted cherry. I used two coats of BLO followed by 4-5 coats of Liberon Furniture oil. The bed turned out very nice but the quilt hardly poped at all. It was mildly disappointing. Now I’m building a walnut sewing machine cabinet using a beautiful store bought highly figur...

Router table fence dust port - 7 replies

I’m lying in bed with the flue ( or something) thinking about my next shop tool build, a stand alone routertable. Clicking around the net, I’m seeing most of the Diy fences and all the ” store bought” fences have those smallish (2”?) dust ports. I’ve been thinking mine would be a 4” port including an e...
