  4. Reclaimed Walnut Side Table.

    This was an experiment in bent laminations of walnut… I ended up using a variety of woods that were laying around the shop, topping it off with a salvaged piece of walnut that I got from a local sawmill. Like I said this was an experimental piece, I plan on making some design changes and...

    Hey everybody, I am working on a Manzanita Burl bowl and have a couple questions about the finish. I have turned the outside of the bowl and have sanded it down to 220 grit. I then took a brown paper bag and kinda polished it with it turning on the lathe. I really don't know why I did that...

    My Next Life George Carlin (1937 - 2008) I want to live my next life backwards: You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then, you wake up in a nursing home feeling better every day. Then, you get kicked out for being too healthy. Enjoy your retirement and collect your pension. Then...

    "We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all maters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act a farce by pretending to it."-George Washington, letter to...

    I just wanted to put a quick question out there: I'm trying to decide on my first thickness planer. Due to budget and space a benchtop is definitely the way to go for me. My preference would be to go with the Dewalt 735 because of it's obvious domination in the world of portable planers. My...

    I'm new here and thought this might be a place to get some help. I was given a 10" Craftsman dual bevel sliding compound miter saw for Christmas last year. I adjusted the saw according to the directions for 90 deg. in both the horizontal and vertical, but when I try to crosscut at 45 deg., it...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All, I've recently been making small boxes, but I'm struggling to find a source of decent quality but not too expensive hardware - hinges and catches etc. I tend to make the boxes out of fairly thin material - no more than 10mm (about 3/8) thick so the hinges in particular have to be small...
