  1. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    Hey gang, just got this email from Rockler, thought I'd pass it along to anyone who hadn't heard about it and might be interested… ------- Have you ever thought about making extra money using your woodworking equipment and skills? If so, now may be the perfect time to give it a try! Thanks to...
  2. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Last night I picked up an old parlor heater locally, and am looking for any and all information I can get about it….value, age, restoration tips, rarity, websites, history, etc. It's from the Jewel Stove and Range Co, says "Garnet Jewel" on the front, and "No. 1" on the back. I can get a...

    Hi, I am looking for a motor for my future Beall buffing system. In a second hand shop I saw this motor. There is no mark or no tag on it providing info. I do not know the speed, the power, etc … They do not either. Maybe among you someone will recognize the motor and then it will help me to...

    Is anyone familiar with the origin of the spider-back chair? If you Google "spider-back chair" you can see plenty of examples if you are not sure what I mean. I'd like to know who originated that design. Overall it appears to be a Louis XVI style of medallion chair but I can't find any...
  5. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Goodmorning Jocks: Over the weekend I was working on a basic cabinet for my mothers computer printers. While cutting 3/4 dadoes about 1/4 deep in plywood I had trouble with the cut drifting towards the end of the cut as the blade exited the plywood. The back corner of the plywood started...

    Greetings and salutations fellow Lumberjocks! I build custom cases for guns, headphones, computers, etc. While Kaizen Foam is great for this application, the price is ridiculously high for a sheet of rubberized air pockets. I'm looking to find a foam that would work well for custom cases at a...
  7. Jigs & Fixtures
    Hey everyone, I'm going to be building a unique game table for a client. The table top will be a custom shape. The shape is kind of an oval but with both ends squared off. Rockler and other places sell router jigs for making elliptical shapes. And normally, I would use one of those and chop the...

    I've just started into woodworking in the last year and this is my first post, so forgive me if some of these seem like dumb questions! After much research, I purchased the Incra LS positioner, table top, and stand. I've seen several posts of nice enclosed cabinets that people have made using...

    I recently had an Ash fall on my property, about 30 inches in diameter and exceeding 100 feet tall, as well as a 70 foot hickory that's 19 inches in diameter. There's no way I can use/give away that much firewood, so I just purchased a Lumber Maker and plan on trying to saw out some usable...
  10. Wood & Lumber
    I remember an article published a year or so ago in a popular woodworkers mag and bought into it but now I'm not so sure. The article dealt with green wood. It stated, by some woodworker,s that they took green wood and submerged it into a cheaper (not costing much) dish detergent (Costco brand...

    Hello fellow lumberjocks, a few years ago I bought a wood-slab coffee table. While the wood (teak) is really beautiful, the craftsmanship is rather sloppy. Over time the t-join that was used at the base of the table became very loose, and the table just wiggles around like crazy. I was...

    Can't believe I am doing this at the age of 63, but I signed up for a beginning woodworking class at the local technical school … classes start tonight. I never was allowed to take shop when I was in high school … based on my aptitude tests, my counselors were always pushing me toward what they...

    OK, I know this is a lame question but since you guys are just soooooo helpful I just had to ask as I have been dwelling over this problem for a while. And now well…. we need the trailer back to fill it up with gardening waste rather than a dead tree!!!! We had a large Birch tree that had died...

    I've got to build some cabinets for a laundry room and my wife wants a couple of them to have sliding doors as they'll be more functional for her than doors that swing open. I'm trying to figure out what the best way is to build these. I'm more than a little stumped on the whole 'sliding' part...

    No No No, not THAT kind of Singer Seams to be quite of few people that have repurposed the old antique Singer sewing machines. Let's see how many we can get together and compare. I have 2 projects over the past 12 years involving singer sewing machines. I am now looking for a couple more of...

    I bought this Unisaw from Blaine Vonhagen a while back - he made this custom sliding table custom - unbelievably great work - very detailed, very precise, very well thought out. Hand made with aluminum, and utilized an Altendorf fence in the design. I finished up the few things he did not have...

    I am looking for someone to craft a lazy susan for me. The photo below is the general idea of what I am looking for, from a craftsman no longer in business. Does anyone here want to take on a project, or have any referrals?

    I am v carving names and engraving designs into cutting boards as gifts. I would really like to fill the cuts with a food safe filler that will hold up to hand washing and not poison my family. (Most of them anyway =) ) I have used a colored wood filler for other projects but always sealed it...

    This afternoon I planed two similar looking pieces of rough purpleheart to find them very different in grain and color. I thought I had made my decision as far as layout but they are very different and I am thinking it could ruin the look of the drawer fronts or the overall look of the cabinet...

    I just stumbled across this article announcing the upcoming sale at Sotheby's auction of the Pratt Desk designed by the brothers Greene and built by Peter Hall. This pinnacle piece of G&G furniture is expected to sell for something in the range of $4 million dollars - Wow!! Feel free to put...
