Joint 2 3/4" x 11 1/2" x 10' Douglas-fir Boards - 10 replies
Okay, could use a little help here…. I’m building a table top (final is 60”x120”) out of 4×12x10’, old-growth, clear, veritical grain Douglas-fir. I have a 12” jointer, but the rascals (there are five boards) are to cumbersome to manhandle across it. We’ve decided that the only option is to build...

I notice a lot of people making Craftsman furniture using “stiles” (Morris Chair, end tables and the like). I always had a tough time figuring our how to sand and scrape those little buggers. This is the jig I came up with. It’s simple and kinda self explanitory, but man does it make a difference for sanding and scraping! I...

Holme on Holmes... - 12 replies
Okay, so I’m the first to admit it – I like the Canadian craftsman!;) Lee Valley is my source one! The craftsmanship here at Lumberjocks clearly demonstrates that the Canooks are A-1. But I gotta tell ya, the show “Holmes on Holmes” is something that does all Canadians proud, it has done a world of good for me. Clearly working to teach the y...

How's everyone take care of Glue Clean up? - 13 replies
As I panicked at glue squeeze-out on my latest project, I thought I know woodworkers all over the world – so ask. So here I am, asking;” How do you all take care of the glue squeeze problem?” Personally I usually wind up with a damp cloth, chisel it before it sets or wax/tape the adjoining edge – but I thought I’d yield the floor to those more...

Who Would EVER Measure in Thousandths? - 136 replies
I just wanted to get a little input from other lumberjocks on this idea. My partner in the shop and I have a friend who is primarily a metal worker.
