    I saw a Grizzly 8-inch jointer and have decided to buy it. I have a few questions I hope you can settle for me. First off, I was impressed with the condition of the machine. It looked almost new as the seller said in his ad. I took an 8" piece of rough-milled 4/4 cherry and jointed one side. It...

    I turned the page on the Lee Valley calendar the other day and noticed the Miller Falls hand drills. I remembered seeing one my dad had given me years ago, found it in my shop and sure enough it matches the one on the calendar. Anybody have one like this? There are only two of the "bits"...

    There are a lot of different kinds of wood these days. I use the right wood for the job, but everyone should have a favorite wood. I like walnut, because it's really tough wood. And when you cut it, you get this really nice smell. But I would like to learn about exotic wood. So leave a comment...

    With all the pros of building end grain cutting boards for durable, long wearing, edge-tool friendly cutting surfaces, why isn't there more talk about building an end-grain bench-top for a workbench? Is there something I'm missing?

    Hi. I'm making a dining table and the guy I'm making it for wants legs attached to the very corners, like the photo I've attached. I'm wondering what the best type of joint / fastener is for a result like this? I'd like to have no fastners visible from the top, as in the picture. *The legs will...

    I know nothing about woodwork so sorry if this isn't the right place. I've cut up some tree branches and need to sand the bases flat, but really have no idea how to go about this. I assume I need a sander, but the only sanders in the house are finishing sanders which after trial don't seem...

    I am working on tiling my bathroom and my wife picked out the white brazilian pecan plank tiles. I was thinking it would be nice to find a way to use the 'real' species for other stuff like a mirror, shelves, etc. The thing is I can't find any explanations of brazilian pecan and at this point...
