    The area in-question is the left inlay. I have a project that I want to finish up soon, and was almost done until I ran into a problem. I drilled 6-holes in the back of a piece of mahogany, then glued-in a neodymium magnet into each hole, slightly countersunk below the surface, around 1/16" or...

    Since getting my Kreg tool I've been on a tear. My table saw is an 20+ year old low end Craftsman on a steel base. I think it is time to upgrade. My first foray was a portable contractor saws: DeWalt 744, Bosch 4100. With stands they are over $500. HD has the DeWalt 745 for $299 put that unit...

    Im in the market for a router lift and I am considering making my own. I'm a mechanical engineer by trade and work with vendors all the time to get parts made for our machines. As I was looking at the lifts on the market, I couldn't help but to think, I could make that. We have a vendor who...

    The top on my current project features a couple fairly significant knots that we've decided not to remove. Instead I'm planning on filling them with a pour on clear epoxy-the kind you might pour on a bar top. I'm also going to be adding an inlay to the top and would like to run the whole thing...

    Opinions needed, please let me know what you think: Mas, System Three, Interlux epoxy Many believe these epoxies to be food safe and dishwasher safe. One of the wood working mags did an article with these claims. Having used multiple brand epoxies for years I am still hesitant. The Fed...

    I'm in the planning stage of making some outdoor furniture for the wife, she wants a sectional. To save cost i want to build it out of pressure treated lumber and use a teak or other weather resistant veneer. I would use epoxy instead of regular wood glue for adherence. Am i underestimating the...

    This past weekend I was able to attend the first tool meet by a new tool collectors group in Kerrville Texas. Had A great time and got to see several unique tools for sale, see great woodturning bowls, meet some like-minded folks, and create new friendships. This was a small event held at a...

    A few days ago there was a thread about repairing an exterior door. There were some suggestions about some epoxy products to use. I can't seem to find it now. I have an exterior, south facing solid core wood door that has some delamination. I would like to remove the damaged wood, fill it...

    I saw quite few less than quality HW mostly maple logs in an effort to get some really special wood with pretty spalt, maple tap holes, sap scar, burl, and birds eye. Inevitably I end up with some pretty odd stuff thick, thin, short , cracked and broken but still usable. I read a good many posts...

    I bought two rounds to make table tops out of. I have a couple questions though. First, they have both been kiln dried so moisture shouldn't be a problem. One has a little chunk (the round on the right that has to parallel cracks in the back) that is a little loose. Should I just remove it and...

    I am building table tops for a cousins cafe'. I am building them out of pallet wood and till I joint them flat I have varying thicknesses of the pcs. We are fine with that as it only adds to the "look". being it is a table it still needs to be smooth and easy to clean. I am not to experienced...

    Hi all, I recently picked up an old wooden leg vice screw and plan to use it in my current workbench build. The threads are all in sound shape however there is some checking in the screw head(?, where the handle goes through) and in the backing nut. While it all looks secure now my concern is...

    Has anyone heard of a company called "Durall Industrial Flooring"? Our landlord just trenched out along the inside wall of the basement to install a tile to stop the flooding of the basement. So, we have newly poured concrete around the edge. This company apparently has a product called...

    My brother is getting married and I am making him a whiskey decanter for a wedding present. I am looking to seal it on the inside so that it is alcohol proof (not just resistant) I am thinking epoxy. But I think this will be messy and hard to apply to the interior. The decanter is oak so i am...

    I am trying to create a lake efffect for a Juniper coffee table as the piece I am using has several large voids. I want the colors to be darker on the bottom and become lighter as I fill the void to try and create the effect of looking into a deep blue lake. I have depth of about 2" to work...

    I have a chance to buy a 1-year old (lightly used) Drum Sander for $850. I've read a lot of good reviews on this model but not sure I want to spend this much. Is this a reasonable price?

    I am in the market for one and I have seen bits with a top mounted bearing, bottom mounted bearing and top and bottom bearings. I am considering getting a top and bottom bearing bit as it appears it can do the same job as the other two . . . but in one bit. Or should I buy separate top bearing...

    If you haven't experienced the joy that is plantar fasciitis, count your blessings. I can't go into details on it but basically, as I understand it, it is a sort of tendon overstress caused by age, weight, and overly hard surfaces such as concrete and tile flooring. My shop floor is concrete...

    Hello all! I'm in the process of building a set of carriage doors. Using mortise and tenon joinery. Tenons are 2-1/2". I've been back and forth about glue. Even though this topic has been discussed plenty I'd still like to have someone with past experience in exterior doors to chime in. All is...

    Found a real nice deal on walnut, was just going to make some chisel handles and a cutting board. But when I saw these sticks in person many had gorgeous figure to them, so I bought the best I could find. Ended up with 10 sticks. Ain't gonna use all that on just handles. All are about 2" x 3"...
