    cutting the lid off Ok, ready for cutting the top off this box. Fingers crossed… The maple sides have some figure in them, so I have been looking for a finish to maximize the shift in luster depending on the angle of view, a.k.a. 3D effect, a.k.a. chatoyancy. Just wanted to share my...

    I had no idea where to post this topic. It fits in the workshop safety section; it fits (kinda) in the jigs section, certainly could go in the powertools and hardware section and would be cozy in the lumber section. But alas there is no What the… section. So I decided to post it here. I was...

    I'm getting set to buy a set of dado blades. After reading some posts on here and looking around, I found these three choices One is this Dewalt set Second is this Freud set Third is this Oldham set. I am leaning towards the Dewalt or Freud with Dewalt being my preference. Any feedback is...

    I'm wondering if there will be another swap event anytime soon. I am new to this site so I haven't figured out how to find out information just yet. Is it normally advertised on the home page? I just missed out on the plane swap and have read about a mallet and marking gauge swap as well. Just...

    I learned my lesson the hard way with end grain cutting boards. I'll wait until my skill level goes up a notch or two before trying that one again. First Question: I know what end grain is, I think the other aspect is called the "long grain" (not sure), but what is the side grain called? Let me...

    I just purchased a Ridgid R4512. I thank you folks for your threads and postings on the blade shift defect found on this saw. They helped me to get a good one. It turned out to be a major undertaking. I had to make an all day round-trip trip across the island to check out the only other R4512...

    Long time reader, first time posting. I got a free hand-me-down Delta 34-444 contractor saw from my brother-in-law. He upgraded the fence and got cast iron wings since he owned it, discarded or lost the original accessories, then got a newer/better saw that could fit his accessories. Now I...

    My delta 22-580 planer seems to be crapping out. After 10+ years of usage i can't complain. I am thinking about possibly moving up to a stationary planer. Besides the size, what are the advantages of one? I will be getting at least a 13 inch, probably more likely to get a 15 inch if i go...

    Just a heads up to fellow Lumberjocks that also spend time on Facebook that one of the applications - "Picdoodle" appears to be a phishing expedition or a least has hit upon a novel way to spread itself across that site. The application allows a person to draw or doodle over jpeg images in...
