  1. Olaf Bandsaw Box

    Granddaughter Alayna just turned three, so I wanted to make her a special box, but I couldn't think of a design, until it occurred to me that every time she comes over she asks me to watch "Frozen" with her. Not being nearly artistic enough to make either of the princesses, I decided to follow...
  2. Norm's Router Table

    Here's my version of Norm's router table. Its not the best I've seen on here, but I think it will get the job done. The biggest challenge was routing out the top for the plate insert. I spent several hours screwing around with bushings and stuff, only to eventually have the light come on that...
  3. Peppermills

    Here are some of the peppermills that I have produced. Some of these have already found loving homes. I have some pictures posted behind my lathe and look at them when I start but I really don't have a clue what the finished product will be until it is finished. The 2nd pic in is a prime...
  4. Boxes

    These Boxes are made from a variety of hard woods including, Beech, Mahogany, African Walnut and quarter sawn red Oak. They are finished with shellac and or home brewed Danish oil. The joinery varies from but joints reinforced with brads to box joints to mitre joints.
  5. Hand Tools
    I picked up a few braces at a recent estate sale. One is a Stanley 945-10. The ratchet selector is frozen. I was able to move it a bit with a wrench but was messing up the knurling and it's even more froze. I've soaked in WD-40 and then PB Blaster when that didn't work. Nothing has helped. I...
  6. Wood & Lumber
    I picked up some "pressure-treated" 2×4s at a covered, outdoor lumber yard here in the midwest. Since the weather is cold the wood had some ice on it, I'm assuming based on the moisture from the wood. After 24 hours of being indoors they began to thaw. I'm noticing now some green streaking...
  7. Woodturning
    I have had my lathe less than 5-days and turned 1 1/2 pieces (second piece is still on lathe to be completed) and when I tried to switch from a 'live end' to a 'drill chuck' on the tailstock, IT WAS FROZEN IN PLACE. I figured I had done something wrong and immediately did an Internet search...
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi All I am wondering how or if I can do glue ups in a cold shop. I live in New Hampshire and it tends to get chilly in my un-heated shop in the winter months,(15-20° F is not uncommon) My shop is large and uninsulated and the roof peak is about 22 feet high. I run a radiant propane heater in...
  9. Finishing
    Hi Guys. I have a CRAFTSMAN Professional 13" Planer. Haven't used it much at all and it was almost new when I bought it. Today I planed a 1" x 6" mahogany board and it did just fine. Then when I tried to plane the other side, it quit feeding through. Upon checking, I found the front and...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi Guys. I posted this yesterday in the "Finishing Forum" because I couldn't find "this" forum. I had a few suggestions, but nothing from anyone who owned one of these. I have a CRAFTSMAN Professional 13" Planer. Haven't used it much at all and it was almost new when I bought it. It's model #...
