    I have projects on the list of " Things to make " and would like to use cut nails. I have used some in the past to make wooden boxes but have not used them much. Does anyone have tricks or thoughts on using them? Also from where did you purchase them? TIA
  2. Wood & Lumber
    I have seen a lot of cutting boards on LJ. Some are end grain while others appear to not be end grain. Obviously non -end grain boards are easier to make, so my questions are. Does it make a difference? Should I be concerned with keeping the board clean more so with one or the other? If I...

    Normally when I use a carriage bolt with wood I will use a torque washer. Today I went looking for ones for 3/8" bolts and was shocked by the price. I have had problems with carriage bolts holding (not turning) with plywood or MDF. I was wondering if I coated the square shoulders with...
