Bugs found in firewood - 6 replies

I was splitting up some of my firewood this week and found these not-so-little guys. They came out of some pecan I got from my brother’s house this last summer. He had it stacked for about a year. They have eaten that pecan up pretty good. Does anyone know what they are? They are not eating any of the oak firewood. Should I...

Used Beisemeyer Fence Riding Too Low - 20 replies

I put a used Beisemeyer fence on my 1952 Unisaw yesterday, and it’s riding a little low. The faces of the fence catch in the miter slots as I slide the fence. I don’t want to end up damaging the faces of the fence or scratch the top of the saw. I was thinking about putting a thin layer of mole skin (or felt) on the nylon slides to...

Saving original doors in my 114 year old house. - 3 replies

I live in a house that was built in 1902, and we are slowly updating/restoring things when we can. The front porch has two doors that look like this: Is there a way to salvage them? I was thinking about injecting glue into the cracks and then clamping it with a large flat piece of plywood, sanding, and applying finish. Would this w...

Unisaw bearings going out! - 17 replies

I was given an old unisaw and recently ran new power to my garage to run it. The saw has sat for a while, and so I replaced the belts, but was hoping to be able to avoid replacing the bearings. No such luck. They really started talking to me tonight. So my question is where is the best place to buy them? It is a 1953 (pretty sure) with the ol...

Richards Wilcox vise - 12 replies

I purchased this old vise from a guy down the road from where I work. (He was kind enough to show me his shop too.) I’ve been looking for a deal on one and found this for a fair price, but it’s missing a pretty important part…the quick release mechanism. I’ve looked online and am having a difficult time finding a ...

Wipe on poly over Danish Oil...first time using both products. - 5 replies

I’m refinishing a crib (stripped it down to bare wood) and finishing a bath tub tray for our claw-foot tub, and am wondering if I need to put a sealer, like sealcoat, between the Danish oil and poly. I’m using Watco Danish oil, and am making my own wipe on poly (first time for both of these.) I’ve always followed the stain&...

First non-plywood cabinet...and have a question. - 3 replies

First off, this is a great site loaded with information, and I am glad I found it. I am building my first non-face frame/edge banded cabinet with reclaimed solid wood. The wood was used to ship natural gas pipeline via rail, and was very rough with few straight edges. I believe it is oak, both white and red (will post pictures later and see ...

What books and magazines do you feel offer information that has valu...
