  1. 2nd chair I made

    another project I've already posted but did'nt do justice to it with one photo. I turned both front legs and mortise and tenoned the rest. Finished with polyurithane. I also burnt the ivy in the back of the chair which was fun
  2. Tumbling Block Pizza Board

    This is a tumbling block board made from Black Walnut, Cherry, and Hard Maple. It's roughly 12.5" in diameter and just under 1/2" thick.
  3. 1st Attempt at a Wooden Spoon

    My favorite spoon in my kitchen is an old, horribly stained plastic piece that looks like it will crack into pieces at any time. I just love the way the spoon feels as well as the thin handle - I use it to stir the coffee in my French Press in the morning. It also is strong enough to stir a...
  4. Game Chest

    I made this last summer as a wedding gift for my God-daughter. The couple live in Wyoming and their decorating tastes seem to run "old western" or "rustic" so I tried to make something that would fit in. The chest is approximately 14" X 9" X 11" included poker chips, cribbage board, dominoes...

    I bought this in York market last week but really don't have a clue as to what it's for. You know you're a Lumber jock when you buy…... It's around 9" long overall. Any ideas gentlejocks?
  6. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I took my first trip into a Menard's this past weekend and I was truly impressed with their lumber and tool selection. I only have Lowe's and Home Depot around me and by comparison, they're terrible. Menard's had actual Baltic birch plywood in 4×8 sheets in 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4". They also had...

    I am a weekend DIYer. I have an older Bosch 4000 worksite saw. It has a lot of power but it is bruised up and starting to become unsafe. I would like to have a larger contractor saw so i can have more stability and the ability to make more sleds. I am considering the Ridgid, Masterforce...

    Hey everyone. So I just picked this table saw up off of Craigslist for $25. It's a 1986 Menards brand 10" belt drive table saw. I cleaned it up and replaced the belt and it seems to be running nice and smooth. It didn't come with any kind of blade guard or splitter. So my questions are, one has...

    Where to Buy Screws I mostly purchase general construction screws from Menards, the Star-bit drive ones because they don't cam out on me like the Phillips heads do. I get them there for $3.79 per one pound box, a great price for a good screw. However, they don't carry any shorter than 1 3/4"...

    I've noticed this set of drill bits on sale at Menards for $14.99 and wondered whether anyone can vouch for them being an okay set.
  12. Hand Tools
    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Menards Masterforce F clamps. I'm looking to add more clamps to my shop and I came across them the other day. I was impressed with the fit and finish and was wondering about the quality. I like the Bessey Trademans clamps but they cost three...
