    I have been reading about bandsaws and about rounding the back of the blade. Does everyone do this, why? on all blades? What do you use to round the back of the blade? Thanks.
  2. Wood & Lumber
    Was wondering how well Alaskan Yellow Cedar can hold up to the elements seeing as I want to buld a Adirondack Chair. The lumber itself is at a warehouse 5 minutes from my home and the prices are as follows: 4" = $3 per linear foot 1.5" thick 5-6" = $4 per linear foot 1.5" thick Good? Bad...

    hello all - A guy at work brought me a maple burl to turn into a bowl (this is one half of it) so as i got started and revealed what was underneath I came into some cool spalting and knots. The question is he wants the "all natural" look and would prefer not to fill the holes/knots/or cracks...

    I need an air filter for my small shop (16'x20'x7') and was about to get the Grizzly G0738 for $199 plus shipping, but I just received a flyer from my local Wood Craft store with a Wood River 3-speed cleaner for $250 on sale from $300. The Wood River is much stronger and has the same db rating...

    I am still working on a new workbench for the shop (since November). I have moved on to an end/tail vice on the right end of the top. I have a couple of questions and hope to get some enlightenment. 1. I keep confusing the end vice with the tail vice. The one I am building goes all the way...
  8. Marketplace Classifieds
    My stepfather loved his Shopsmith tools and after he passed, these two items (in photo, with tape stretched to 36" for reference; my first post so I H) have surfaced long after, if you'll pardon the expression, the dust settled and his woodworking gear went under the auctioneer's gavel. I've had...

    My workbench is done, so I thought I would upload some pictures. Let me know what you think. :)
  10. Finishing
    Everything I've done so far has been low-tech (milk paint, shellac flakes, BLO, tung oil) so I need advice regarding varathanes and such. Seeking recommendations for something water resistant, durable, subtle and not requiring too many steps or any fancy equipment. Widely available would be nice...

    Start Rant I jumped back into the SU ring a couple of days before xmas. I watched a couple of tutorials and said "enough of that, I want to sketch something". I started sketching something for the Winter Awards and got completely frustrated. I have now started back at square one with reading...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I was browsing in my local lumberyard (U.S. Mahogany Corp. Matawan NJ) on Friday afternoon. It's on my way home from work (good for me, bad for my bank account), and while looking for nothing really in particular, I came across a really nice board of Sapele in the "Exotics/Special Woods"...

    A neighbor recently gave me 6 6×32" pieces of what he saysv is Brazilian walnut (ipe). Also is a 4×4 about 4 feet long and a 28 gallon tub full of 6-10" long cut off pieces from building his deck. Any ideas on what I can do with this wood? From everything I have read this stuff is tough to...

    I have several 6-8 foot maple boards that need about 1/2 inch ripped off. I know (from experience) that cutting maple can cause burns. Since I am a novice at this, I was wondering what, if any, the trick is to doing it without burning. These were expensive pieces and I really really need them...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi, Everybody. My first post here. I'm new to woodworking as a hobby. I've built some basic projects in the past like workbenches and basement storage shelving. I'm looking to get into finer projects and techniques. I purchased a Bosch 4100-09 the other day. I chose it because of my limited...
  16. Woodcarving
    I am new to wood working and this is my first project. I always wanted to do a small side stool from a stump with carving on the sides. A few months ago I got this piece free. I think its some sort of redwood? It was sitting in my garage all this while. Today, with the perfect alignment of...
