    Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber) We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single...

  6. Woodworking Skill Share
    Is it me or does everyone have problems cutting straight with a band saw? (Mine does not have a fence) I make my mark, draw my line and then line that line up to the blade. As I push the wood through I find myself having to move the wood left and right in order to keep the blade on (or at...
  7. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have been wanting to do a simple project for my office to show some skill and entice some of them to commission some work. I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for a simple project that would take some skill to do but impressive looking. It should also be appropriate for an office...

  12. Wood & Lumber
    Hey guys, I have been making cutting boards for the family for Christmas. Yesterday, I ran into an unpleasant surprise. I sanded three of my boards with 150 and brought them inside. I rinsed the sawdust off of them with water and dried them off with a towel. I left them to dry overnight and...

    (Tip: if you don't want to read the whole story, skip to the end and tell us your 2 woodworking-related wishes) While at the hardwood dealer you find an old hunk of 8/4 lumber that looks so awful you can't imagine it ever seeing a better day.

    Just got the latest Woodcraft brochure offering the Professional SawStop at 2899. There was a blog some 3-4 months ago when this product was first announced and it included the basic specifications of the saw. My question is how does it compare with the original industrial saw. Looking at it...
