    Butterfly Spline inlay on a Kanna Dai This is a repair that is often done when a Kanna has a split or check in the wood. Rather than simply filling it with epoxy and/or superglue, it is way better to use a mechanical connection to repair the crack and ensure that it doesn't expand or get worse...

    Hi Don, I have just joined the forum and noticed your entry about a router table addition to your TS 3650 which is something I am interested in doing. I am also in Jacksonville, Fl, living on the south side off San Jose Blvd. I hope to hear from you as your time permits. Take care, Bernie Brust...

    I want to gradually replace my steel overhead garage door line with carriage house doors, but it's a big jump. Carriage Doors are much more attractive, but I'm concerned about the stability. They need to be flat and lightweight…and if possible environmentally friendly because most of my clients...

    Okay, I know the Stanleys have been discussed often, but I'm new to the appreciation of and also determining the value of older hand tools. I know I'm not including a bottom shot or one of the blade, but I remember them to be in very good condition. So, how much would you say this is worth...

    I have a question for the pros out there. I have been lucky enough to receive a good amount of boards of white oak, they range from 2" to 3-1/4" x 1-1/2" x 30" to 37" long. Project: 24" x 60" woodworking bench, with a 3" top, (2 pcs. of 3/4" plywood with 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" oak boards) butcher...

    I've built a desk and need to make two doors for it. The desk will be stained a dark color. The top is made of a single sheet of plywood cut in an irregular shape and has a routed round-over edge. There are two cabinets on either side, one for a computer and one for storage. The computer monitor...

    The blower tube that connects to the upper arm and flexes to blow the saw dust off of the wood cracked and now will not stay where I placed it. The first joint where the black plastic connects to the steel ball has a crack in it. The slight vibration when the saw is running causes the entire...

    Hi all, I thought it was about time to post some pictures of the table saw I've been talking of for some time, now that I've gotten it setup and am becoming familiar with using it. Before the photos, a little background about myself. I have been an very amateur woodworker for about 23 years...

    We are in Katy, TX if you want to map it. The electricity came back on this afternoon at about 5PM so I'm just posting my initial thoughts this morning since I slept for the first time starting at about 6PM last night. LOL. My wife and I stayed with our two daughters and one son in law at our...

    Hello all, I have just purchased a SS PCS which will be here tomorrow. I am very excited since this is a ginormous upgrade from the Delta saw I bought 7 years ago when I was first bitten by the WW bug. The Delta has served me very well, even if way underpowered and a terrible fence. I never...

    For sale is a really nice condition EC Emmerich #711 Priumus Smooth plane. Sole is freshly lapped, it takes beautifully fine shavings of less than .001, to medium shavings around.003 as shown in the photos. Adjustable mouth makes it easy to refine, as does the zero backlash adjuster. Blade has...
  14. Woodturning
    Here is a simple turning I tried with nothing to be lost if it didn't work so well. The hedge is green, freshly cut about two months ago now so I thought it would turn fairly easily with sharp gouges and skews. Roughing out the small diameter log was no picnic, partly because there was a small...

    I built this pneumatic clamp set to hold material to the sliding table of my Felder KF700. I use it for sawing and shaping. I have built a batch for Felder owners and there is interest to do another batch. I thought I post it here as this clamp can be used on sliders of other brands as well...

    Has anyone found the secret to preserving the brilliant yellow color of freshly milled Bois d'Arc? (Osage Orange) I have made a couple of pens and wine stoppers out of Bois d'Arc and I really like the eye catching bright yellow color. The problem is that the bright color doesn't last and gives...

    Dan learned stuff from the Easter Bunny. Being a country boy, I learned from the farmers: ~ Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong. ~ Life is simpler when you plow around the stump. ~ A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor. ~ Words that soak into...

    Looking at the photo below, how would you secure the disc to the base plate? - I've tried pre-drilling and using a large wood screw, but the disc tends to still rotate on the base. - The best luck I've had is using a 3/8" dowel rod as a connector. It seems to work, but still leaves the disc...
