  1. Projects In Progress
    So my coffee table-top glueup didn’t come out as well as I was hoping. All the boards are even edge-to-edge, but I have a little crown here and a little cup there. And decent warp of ~1/4” from corner to corner. Sucks to be me. Or maybe not. On a hunch, I put my 24” straight edge on our kitchen...
  2. Dali's Chessboard

    A dream. Drinking wine with Salvador Dali, discussing perspective and the fourth (linear) dimension. He suggested a game of chess. We cleared the table. All went well until he produced the chessboard…..... A shell, EZ Mitre box 112mm square x 54mm high. Materials - 4mm MDF core veneered with...
  3. Translucent veneer floor lamp

    I made this for my wife, against her request…so I guess it is for myself. This is a translucent veneer lamp with a body made out of solid, figured, black walnut. Design created as I went. The veneer is birdseye maple stabilized with fiberglass and epoxy. One lower board has two knots that I...
  4. Hand Tools
    I am a little newer to woodworking, and I recently built a 5'x3' MDF torsion box assembly table / workbench. Unfortunately, I found that the top surface is not flat (oops). Using hand planes, I was able to improve the flatness to at worst 0.05" (+/-0.025"). My question to you is: should I try...
  5. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello all: I just purchased a new cabinet saw, and have been out in the garage/shop carefully putting everything together. My question is in reference to the flatness of the table. I have a Pinnacle 48" straight-edge, and I have evaluated the table top and both wings in all directions; all...
  6. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have read a couple posts that speak indirectly to this, but wanted to ask a more specific question. I just bought the new saw. Not factoring in the cast iron wings, which exacerbate this, the actual saw top is flat at the front, convex about 1/32nd of an inch over the blade, and about 1/16th...
  7. Focus on the Workspace
    I'm looking at building a knockdown Nicholson bench after Chris Schwarz's design. One question is, how well does the benchtop retain 'flatness'. I'm new to hand tools and haven't built a sturdy workbench before. I've considered the usual designs (Moravian, Nicholson, Roubo). Frankly the...

    Slow Down - Jointer Setup I'm sure someone's last words were "This will probably be ok". I used the 25% off coupon at Harbor Freight on New Years day to pick up a 6" jointer. This thing is one serious hunk of iron. The infeed table is flat within 0.001" and the outfeed is flat within...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I built an oblong router table last year in the hopes of getting an incra router fence system. I guess I was extra good last year because my wife bought me the LS17 for xmas. =) Anyway, I have a triton router mounted on a Kreg plate. The table top is a piece of half inch mdf as a base and...
