  3. Focus on the Workspace
    I have a 30 yr old pole barn that will be turned into a workshop, about 24×42. I am gathering estimates to pour a floor, but there seems to be a great disparity of opinions about how to tie the new floor to the building… There have also been suggestions to build a plywood floor over gravel...

    I have been working on a pair of Maloof rocking chairs. I have completed all the seat joints. After muddling through the work I was hoping to start a conversation on tips or tricks for successfully completing these types of joints. I don't think we could replace the advice of instructional...

    Hello, I'm building a blanket/toy chest out of black walnut for my soon to be nephew. This is my first time working with anything other than QSWO. My other projects (QSWO), I stain for an arts and crafts look and top with Arm-R-Seal Satin Oil + Urethane. I've tested a couple of scrap walnut...

    Jalen is gluing up the seat on his Maloof chair but when we clamped the prototype it created gaps as we clamped the sides with the 3 degree angle on sides of the boards. We clamped it to the workbench and fixed most of it but it seems there may be a better way. Charles Brooks talks about a...

    I'm needing to choose between either a jobsite saw like the DeWalt 10" or the Bosch 10" or getting the Dewalt track saw with the short and long tracks. I do all my woodworking in a second bedroom in our apartment (space is LIMITED) so buying an older, slightly larger contractors table saw is...

    I've been reading and looking at older NF Workbench jobs here and I was wondering if I could get some dimensions from those that have built one. The principle dimensions I need are the foot dims. Say close edge of foot was zero. What is the placement of the pipe center, and the first wide...

My daughter wants me to build her a purple recurve bow, I'll be using purple heart and would like to know what finish would be best to keep the color of the wood purple the longest. (I hear it turns brown...

    I'm sure I spelled the oil wrong. Suffice it to say I bought an $18 bottle from Woodcraft, it's the Japanese oil for coating tools. What experience do folks have with it here? Thanks in advance for replies

    My wife was telling me that she saw a man driving a pick-up truck down the interstate, and a dog was hanging onto the tail gate for dear life! She said if the pick-up truck driver hadn't been going so fast in the other direction, she would have tried to stop him. A few weeks later, we saw this...

    I had a nice German couple drop by the shop the other day and they looked at a couple of Pecan tables, they liked the color and grain of the Pecan and inquired as to having a 24 foot long x 18" wide long bar with a 2.5 inch drop edge and also an 8 foot L section at one end. Well I have never...

    I'm in the process of designing a sideboard and intend to use the California round but I can't seem to find any good close up examples of it. I thought it was just a simple round over, but in one pic I see Maloof tying the vertical pieces to the horizontal ones with butterfly keys. Anyway if...

    Is adding dowels or biscuits really necessary when glueing up a Maloof rocking chair seat? Both Scott Morrison and Sam use dowels while Charles Brock uses dominoes. Are these for alignment when glueing or to add strength to the chair. I don't have a drill press or domino jointer so I would...

    In my years of falling trees and letting them dry for a few years before cutting up for woodworking projects, I've never seen anything like this! Those growths you see sticking up in these two photos? At first, I thought they were a fungus growing out of the bark, but they're not. As I looked...

    I'm building a maloof rocker and when attaching the arms with a dowel I split the top of the front leg. I'm using a 3 inch long 1/2 dowel to connect the bottom of the arm to the top of the front leg. It was a tight fit so I hit it with a mallet and then noticed 2 splits on either side. What can...

    Thought you folks would get a kick out of this. In another forum I belong to the admin had posted some photoshopped pics of surfers with paddles saying he was seeing paddles everywhere (standup paddlesurfing is taking the surfing world by storm). I had to respond by adding my paddle to this...
