  1. Hand Tools
    Can you tell me something about this 4-1/2 hand plane? It isn't in that bad of a shape. It should clean up just fine and should become a descent user. I believe the knob and tote might be walnut but I am more likely to be wrong at this. The back of the lever cap and bottom of the frog has...
  2. Designing Woodworking Projects
    A friend's birthday is coming up in a few weeks and he loves the K-Cup. I'd like to make him a really nice wooden box for him to store them in. Does anyone know what the dimensions of the individual k-cups are?
  3. Woodturning
    OK, I'm trying to salvage what I can from the death of a young Black Cherry on my property. It made it to about 3 1/2" to 4" diameter before the ongoing drought in Texas caught up to it. That said, I decided to turn a green piece of it to see how "turning green wood" worked. I now have a...

    I am eyeing the Maple crotch log that my husband and I harvested from curbside. It was cut 2 yrs. ago and because it was on the dirt, it became innoculated with a white fan fungus. I tried killing the fungus with rubbing alcohol but this only stimulated it. It is now elevated on a concrete...

    Random question: I very rarely see wooden bowls sold for anything other than eating salads (say on Amazon), but I've also seen Robin Wood's wood turned bowls (http://www.robin-wood.co.uk/) being sold for general use. Is the wear/tear on a wooden bowl by daily eating of soups/cereals/dinners too...
  6. Jigs & Fixtures
    Hi Gang, I had a linden tree come down in a storm this summer and I saved about 75% of it for projects/firewood. I am just starting to build jigs to help me keep my fingers attached and feather boards look like a good place to start. I have been scouring the projects and blogs here and have...

    I recently got an excuse to buy a new TS. I'm looking for something with 3hp minimum, up to a 50 inch r/rip cap., and obviously (by the HP) a cabinet saw, price range $0-$2000. I've looked into the steel city TS, but I haven't heard all that much about them. I read missdebbie's interview with...
  8. Woodturning
    Well this is my first forum on Lumberjocks and I'm pretty excited about it. I am a junior at Clemson University, but in my free time I have been turning bowls for about a year now. I have some friends in the tree cutting business where I have gotten the majority of my bowl blanks from, but I...
  9. Woodturning
    Well, I've already posted one forum about microwaving, but I just came across an interesting video about steaming bowl blanks. As a woodturner, it takes a lot of patients to wait months for a project to dry and be completed, therefore I'm always trying to find the fastest, most efficient way to...

    Can I finish a green manzanita burl?

    Credit "isotope" for spotting this. The DW7670 is currently $136 shipped on Amazon, but at checkout, before you execute the order, the total should come up as $108.79 shipped. You'll get a message saying "This Item is Included in Our DEWALT Accessories Promotion. From January 5, 2015, through...

    I HAVE RECENTLY AQUIRED SOME WALNUT, MAPLE AND POPLAR TREES THAT HAVE BEEN CUT INTO ROUGH LUMBER. I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO TREAT THE ENDS TO MINIMIZE SPLITTING. IN OTHER WORDS WHAT DO YOU PAINT ON THE ENDS OF THE GREEN WOOD?

    I've heard that when cured, Waterlox is a very hard, very durable finish that doesn't show scratching much. I'm making a couple tables for a coffee shop and was wondering if anyone could confirm this or offer an alternative that would hold up well, yet not look plasticy - which is also...
