How To: Set up Craigslist notifications using IFTTT - 0 replies

Hey there folks. I’ve been meaning to get around to putting together a quick video tutorial on what IFTTT is, and how to use it. Best of all, it’s free and all done on the web. Everything’s explained in the video, but I’ll throw some cliffnotes here for reference as well. IFTTT (If This Then That) is a site that you...

Welcome to the new hit game show - Name that wood! - 54 replies

A buddy reached out to me yesterday and told me he had a 2-story red cedar barn that had collapsed and I was welcome to the wood. Drove out to his place and while some of the wood looks promising, it’s going to be a weekend project to salvage anything from it. However…off to the side he had another building he had dissassembled...

I -think- I may have a qualifying craigslist brag. - 19 replies

A few days ago I was trying to make a sled for my skilsaw table saw. Used the dremel to get rid of those stupid guides in the miter slots. Then tried ripping some pieces of wood to act as the miter slot rails. For the life of me I just could not get a straight rip cut with the table saw. I got frustrated and threw my hands in the air, figuring I...

Would You Woodwork? with CC Boyce - 2 replies

Stickering rough cut wood. - 16 replies

Hey there folks. Just so everyone knows – when someone talks about stickering rough cut lumber they’re not talking about putting actual “stickers” on the wood. All this time I’ve read about it I figured these were some sort of stickers to indicate moisture levels in the wood. I’m almost certainly the only o...

Have a laugh - 2 replies

A work buddy and I were talking about stuff this morning and the topic reminded me of something I’d seen on Home Improvement many years ago that had stayed tucked away somewhere in the back of my brain. I think this was one of the show’s finest moments.

Scraps in Connecticut? - 22 replies

Hello everyone! I’ve been messing around as an amateur woodworker for about a year now. I’ve mostly been working with pine wood simply due to how affordable it is. I’ve also done a few projects with cheap 2×4’s (the bench I have in my projects list, for example) and I’m working on finishing up a well I built...

Staining and sealing - outdoor project - 1 reply

Hello folks, I’m working on a wishing well to occupy a small area outside our front door. I’ve finished construction of the base and will be working on the rest in the coming days/weeks. The wood I’ve chosen is 2×4 studs with some 1×4 pine between the layers. I’m familiar with how both of these woods look ...

Good deal? Delta 22-580 13" Planer - Like New condition - $200 - 4 replies

I’ve an opportunity to get this planer, sight unseen, for $200. A guy’s selling it at my wifes place of work. I’ve read pretty great things about this planer (both here on LJ and on various other forums/reviews). Most places compare it to the comparable DeWalt planer, and most places give the nod to the DeWalt….however at...
