removing squeeze out from end grain cutting board - 8 replies

I’m going to try making end grain cutting boards. The first attempt is with construction pine just to see what kinds of issues are part of making these boards.

anyone ever deal with MTM Wood - 8 replies

I’m looking to start making end grain cutting boards and MTM Wood in (apparently) Russia makes some fabulous cutting boards. I cant, however, tell if its possible to buy plans on his website or just finished items. the price of one item was 16,000 rubles, which is just under $270US, so i’m thinking thats for the finished cutting bo...

i trimmed a workpiece for a small desk project on my 113 c-man 10” TS and took my calipers to the offcut, just for the heck of it. the piece was 24” long and each end was .12” thick. the workpiece was larger but absolutely perfectly uniform end to end. now for the part that’s going to hurt. I will be disassembling this...

forums viewing has changed? - 14 replies

today, when i logged into lumberjocks, instead of seeing a topic and a few words concerning it within an area (like power tool), i see a topic with a much greater part of the initial posting in a thread. this means i only get to see 2 or 23 threads at one time on my screen. have i inadvertently changed something? and if i have, can i change i...
