  1. No Thank You Borg...

    My old plastic Fastener Organizers finally gave up the ghost. Replacements at "The Borg" would have run about $100.00. Forget that ! For about half that much, and a little ingenuity, I almost doubled my capacity and now have a more organized arrangement which works perfectly for me. Everything...

  3. Hockey Puck Holder

    Had a few hockey pucks sitting around and figured it would be cool to frame them. I tried putting them in a goalie stick's blade using a hole 3" hole saw, but didn't like the end result. Ended up using the hockey sticks as a frame instead. Showed the wife and now I have an order in for our...

  5. Joinery
    I am in the homestretch of finishing building my first "real" wood project. It is a basic crib that I am building for my son. I am following the plans pretty closely, but find myself a bit confused about the logic of the step of fastening the whole thing together. Picture this: - The legs are...
  6. Joinery
    Hi all i'm looking for a fastener that would sorta act like a biscuit but doesn't require glue. Imagine almost like a metal biscuit that had little reversed claws on it so that once it was pushed into the groove it couldn't pull out. I sketched a little cross section of what i mean. Does anyone...
  7. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum but have been woodworking for almost 3 years now. I'm excited to be a new part of this community! I would like some input/feedback on a project for a friend of mine. He would like me to build 4 of the same table for a room that he is going to use for craft...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Please forgive the discursive ramble. I tend to think better "out loud". So, I have a monster of a dining room table that has been in the family for generations. It's a solid wood table with a beautiful persimmon wood veneer. When it's polished up and not covered in all the random crap that...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just purchased my first tool restoration project - a Makita 2030N planer/jointer combo. It needs new rollers and some TLC. There is a fair amount of rust on some of the machined surfaces, some rust on the painted surfaces, and many of the fasteners need to be cleaned up as well. I began...
  10. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Reading Dick's post where he made a save using nails and hearing one of our esteemed podcasters put down the use of nails triggered a few questions. How do people feel about using mechanical fasteners? Christopher Schwarz argues in his video Forgotten Hand Tools that if your building...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I was finishing a coffee table project this weekend and to allow for movement between the legs and the top, I needed some figure 8 fasteners. Drove up to Rockler and was disappointed in that the new ones they are receiving are thin, stampings rather than the normal washer-like pieces they used...

    I hope I am wrong but it seems that all Home Hardware stores are going to stop selling most of their fasteners from bulk bins. Until this happens they are selling off their bulk bin stock at 50% off. I just bought $150 worth of screws, bolts, nuts, and specialty fasteners for $75. I just...
