    I've seen more than one Floridian lamenting the cost and scarcity of Walnut here in Florida. While perusing my local Craigslist, I found 'a guy' who seems to have a fairly ample supply, at a reasonable rate. After calling him, it seems he is down to 300-400 BF of mostly 4/4 rough sawn stock...

    Hello everybody, I have been reading and rereading the shopnotes issue 115 with the ultimate router milling machine on the cover and am planning to build it one of these days. I have been looking over the parts list and figured that I could make all the knobs myself just to keep the cost down...

    I have a Craftsman 8" dado set that I bought a long time ago. It has two outer blades and a set of "chippers" that assemble inside the outer blades to determine the thickness of the dado. I have never been totally satisfied with it because the chippers are about 1/16-3/32 inch shorter than the...

    I'm looking to buy my first drill press. I've searched through some old posts and seen plenty of the benchtop vs free standing discussion. Free standing would work great for me at the edge of my garage right now, but I could do benchtop too. I have some money saved up for shop tools, but since...

    I've searched many forums including the ones here at LJ, and I haven't found a satisfying source of info on wood stabilizing, either to suggest good products or the techniques used to accomplish the desired result. I'm set up with a vacuum system for veneer, and am considering...

    They did not want their name mentioned During Vet day and individual contacted me and donated $100 gift cert. from Penn State Ind. to help me help them. So thank you LJ for your kindness. Arlin
  7. Finishing
    I make lots of pieces w/ either quarter-round or half-round edges. Since there are usually some burn marks, I end up sanding these contours. I'm using mostly maple, so it's tough going. I've been using scraps of sandpaper, but it's hard to keep track of these, plus it's fatiguing on my old...

    Grab box of box elder, some spalted, some with red in it as we'll. One larger block the rest resawn, mostly to about 3/4" some thicker, some thinner. All pieces shown included, I will try to fit more bits in if possible. It's all in one large flat rate box I would like to double the $16.85...

    I have a 3 year old Jet JJP-12, 12" Combo Planer/Jointer 3HP 1PH 230V for sale. I am in the Indianapolis area and of course prefer a local pickup and frankly prefer to sell it for less to LJ member than to sift thru all the CL weirdo's. Absolutely in Like new condition. I will advertise...

    I am thinking of getting into some woodburning on some of my projects, but as with all tools there seems to be endless options. I have seen woodburning pens for $16 and sets up to $200. I do not have the money for the higher end sets right now, but if the less than $50 option would allow me to...

    Can anyone give me some tips on re-soldering broken bandsaw blades? I always end up with messy welds that break as soon as I put pressure on the blade. I have one of the kits from Lee Valley that holds things together while soldering, but I've never done any soldering before, so maybe I'm...

    Hey everyone, I am looking at making a nice display/storage box for my watches. I am looking for it to hold around 10 watches. Can you guys provide some assistance?
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    (Tip: if you don't want to read the whole story, skip to the end and tell us your 2 woodworking-related wishes) While at the hardwood dealer you find an old hunk of 8/4 lumber that looks so awful you can't imagine it ever seeing a better day. It's dirty, rough, twisted, knotty, and has a deep...
  15. Woodcarving
    I sharpened my knife (a German "Two Cherries" knife). I'm using basswood. I am pretty much holding it at the correct angle, as awkward as it feels. I'm keeping my arm close to my side. I watch the video of the dude sliding the knife easily through wood. I try it, and it's HUGELY DIFFICULT. Am I...

    Would like to find the plans that would hold 20 bottles of wine with the criss cross design. Hubby has someone interested in having one made. I've been all over searching. Can't seem to find anyone online/mags I have for with what he needs. Any links or point me in the right direction we both...

    So they no longer make the hutch for the dining room sideboard my wife bought years ago. Which is good. Because now I can build one! And I'd obviously like to match the style of this pine wood construction. Here's the thing though… The sides apparently use Frame & Panel construction, though...
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    I bought 3 rolling display cabinets a few weeks ago at the thrift store. (I paid $3.98 each for them and just really wanted the casters and hardware, but decided to see what I could use them for as is.) I stacked one on top of the other due to lack of floor space and pushed them in and out of...

    I looked at leevalley.com because I saw an ad, but I wasn't very impressed with their selections or price. I did see some nice lid hold open devices and some clever brass feet for boxes. Where do you get your hinges and accessories for boxes?

    I have read the Blog on cleaning up an old rusty Plane (Handplane Restoration #19: Cleaning Parts with Citric Acid) and it mentions soaking the handles of the plane in Boiled Linseed Oil. The read handle (Tote) on this old Dunlap Plane I have is broken in two horizontally, close to the bottom...
