Advice needed for band saw blade - 10 replies

Last night, I picked up a Grizzly G1538 (16” industrial band saw, 1.5 hp) and let me tell you.. It is a definite step up from my 1/3 hp 10” Craftsman. My question is—I plan on probably resawing 75% of the time (probably maple, walnut, and oak) and need a good blade. I’ve been looking at the Wood Slicer (thanks to Eric_...

Antique Tools seen at Craft Antique Co-op in Rochester - 6 replies

Another post tonight and another one to make me feel like a good samaritan because if you so choose (and supply the funds) I will go back on Monday, purchase, and ship these to you. I figured these are too good to pass up and since the market is very small, the prices are very low :) Toolbox 18” Wood Bailey Plane Another plane. ...

Peach Tree (advice or desire?) - 11 replies

In a freak display of nature at its most random, about an hour after having picked and eaten several not-quite-yet-ripe peaches, the tree decided that it wanted to snap at the trunk and royally ruin my weekend. As you can see below, there was a very low crotch that was pruned long ago. My question is: what would you guys recommend I do with i...

October 2011 issue of Wood Magazine - 9 replies

Just got finished flipping through the latest issue of Wood that I got today and felt compelled to mention that it was a fantastic issue. A broad range out topics were covered, slick projects featured, and some neat tricks explained. No, it might not be the most professional mag, but it touched on a lot of the things I’ve run into lately. ...

Comment Here If You Don't Like Stain - 42 replies

Hey all. My family has this nasty habit of using stain and poly on everything they make. They had me suckered into it until I came across and used (first) tung oil finish, then danish oil, and then, most recently, dewaxed shellac. Please comment here to help prevent any more crazy flecked QSRO/WO, burly walnut, and figured maple from being...

Wood Turning - Securing Work on a Lathe - 2 replies

Hey guys—this article came through my items on Google Reader and I thought it would be a good resource to have. I’m mildly interested in turning, so this is definitely something I’ll have saved until I get a lathe and start working. (This article is not by me, but by Stuart Lees, who has a great site at http://stusshed.wordpres...

Google+ - 9 replies

Social networking is big for the woodworking community, it seems. LJ is a community in and of itself, but many people extend their hobby or business into venues like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Google started a new service called Google+ that closely resembles Facebook, but fixes a lot of the problems. I’m curious if anyone else has star...

What kind of music? - 2695 replies

When the machines stop whirring and you’re doing things like drawing plans, finishing projects, or doing other tasks that generate little noise, what do you guys and gals listen to? I find myself listening to classical/soundtracks intermixed with classics like: The right kind of music calms me down and lets me get in tune with the lit...

Tool Un-Gloat - 3 replies

I was at an estate auction tonight.. My wife was feeling ill, so I was a bit distracted. I missed out on a dresser set (two of them) for $55, gorgeous walnut gun cabinet for $65, and other walnut cabinets/chests for around the same price. The auction moved around back of the house and I was late getting there.. I heard “SOLD!” just a...

How much to mill a log? - 23 replies

This weekend, I cut down a walnut tree that was pretty much dead. About 16’ up, carpenter ants had actually cut the top of the tree off. When I took it down, I was about to get about 10’ of clean, ant-free wood. The log is about 20” in diameter and straight as an arrow.. same diameter on the top and bottom. My question is.. ...

What type of wood should I use.. - 6 replies

for a large (18”x10”) cutout meant for wall hanging (silhouette of a dog). It will be painted by someone who knows what they’re doing, but I’m looking for very little grain ends showing, stable, somewhat light, and ~5/8” thick. All I’m doing is cutting it out with a band saw and sanding it. So what say you?...

Rockler 20% off + Plant a Tree! - 2 replies

See Great deal! With all the wood we LJs go through, its not a bad idea to plant more trees than we are responsible for taking down. 20% off doesn’t hurt either!

Hey guys and gals,For his birthday, my bro ( got a new table saw and so he’s giving me one that’s been passed down a few generations (my great-grandfather purchased it).

For those who list on - 4 replies

I was thinking about listing some folksy-type stuff on etsy. Waste of time? Maybe.. but then I stumbled across this today and just wanted to give everyone a heads up. The article is a bit crass, but, essentially, etsy has made your purchase history, favorites, and full name available to not only everyone on the side, but via search engines as we...

Curly Maple for Gun Stock - 20 replies

So my neighbor has been gracious enough to plow my driveway at the most fortunate times this winter. My snowplow bit the dust and with the record snowfall we’ve had this year, shoveling doesn’t accomplish much. He mentioned in passing today that he always wanted a piece of curly maple as a gunstock. I know a guy who knows a guy wh...

Hey guys, found this today: “maple walnut, mahogany, teak, etc”, 200 bf for $100. The wife would be unhappy if I trekked the 50 miles out that way, so I thought I’d just pass that along :)
