  1. Cheap & Easy Pen Press

    If you're new to wood turning like me, by the time you've bought the lathe, chisels, and all the accessories, dropping another $50 on a pen press just seems ridiculous. Before you say "but you don't know", I do know; I used one extensively at a friend's shop and I don't really see the reasoning...
  2. Pen Press

I was looking at pictures of pen presses recently and it dawned on me that I could probably use my Kreg jig...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So, I'm designing a laundry room and would like to set the bottom cabinets using ladder frame bases, but this project will feature a couple of exposed end cabinets. How do you treat end cabinets with ladder frame bases? Do you hold back the kick plate even on the ends? Or build traditional...
  9. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hello, I am posting here, per the advice of many of the LumberJocks who I have spoken with recently. Hopefully, this will not create cause for flagging. Basically, I am looking for someone who may be interested in creating a box to hold a poker playing set, to be raffled off at a fund raiser...
