  1. Wood & Lumber
    I'm doing several BS boxes & have one that has a crack that I'm concerned may allow a chunk to break off. I'd hate to lose the box since the wood is so nice. I could do nothing & hope for the best, but looking for suggestions… Would putting in some thin CA glue help stabilize this? See photos...
  2. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    For the past few months I've been looking (very off and on) for something cheap to make a router table top. By "cheap" I mean what I pay for it, not the material - something more smooth and durable than MDF and melamine. Haven't been able to find anything, which has been frustrating - until I...
  3. Finishing
    So I've been working on these cabinet doors during my days off for nearly 6 months (holy crap I just realized that). I am finally on the finishing stage. I did a first coat of Kilz oil sprayed which were sanded afterwards. I am not spraying SW Proclassic latex enamel. I've got a first coat on a...
  4. Woodturning
    I just completed this bowl from cocobolo and finished with a walnut oil and carnuba paste wax finish. This is a great turning wood and can recommend it to anyone even though it is a bit pricey, the dust can be a nuisance to asthmatics, and it will dull your tools/bits relatively quickly...
  5. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am having trouble finding an online manual for the 735 planer. Every link I find turns into something not a manual. I tried the Dewalt site and still could not get the manual. Getting frustrated to say the least. My search for the manual because I was running a board through and a piece...
  6. Jigs & Fixtures
    I bought my house last year and since then have been working my ass off trying to renovate the entire interior. Since most of it has been general carpentry and whatnot my "shop" in the garage has mostly been a dumping ground for tools. At some point this will be a proper shop with proper benches...

    Hi all! I have for sale a fantastic Norrys type A12 infill plane that I bought to Gerd Fritsche around 2 years ago. Turned out that I never had the change to use extensively and now I am moving from business to hobby, so there is no need to keep such a beast as a tool for making birdhouses :-)...
  8. Hand Tools
    Ok… I got this #3 plane at a flea market, maker unknown. Heck, I've got PTAMPIA vol I & II, and a dozen other plane reference books. I thought I was invincible. BUT… no dice on finding a comparable photo in any book!!! DonW suggested "Defiance" but I cannot find a picture to corroborate...

    A driver who fell asleep at the wheel drove across my lawn and took out an 80 year old yew. Before it gets chipped/taken to the dump, if someone is interested in some of the wood, please contact me. I am in Baltimore, MD. Jock 443-994-6025

    What's an ideal thickness for the kerf of a dovetail marking knife? Also, is this shape of blade for dovetail marking preferable? I'm making two knives for the heck of it but one expressly for dovetails. The other knife will have this kind of blade, which I'm guessing isn't preferable for...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm pretty new to woodworking and was hoping to get some help. I have a Ridgid R4512 table saw and would like to install a router insert in my table. I have no clue where to start or what to buy. I've seen a few posts where guys are showing off their custom router inserts and some of the parts...

    Hi guys thanks for the warm welcome. I am an ametuer woodworker, but always find myself chasing/doing advanced projects. Currently, I am building a mock sleigh bed that i saw at bassett funiture. I like to do it the hardway. I like to re-create peices that have no plans, which here lies the...

    So…I was in the shop putting stain on the forearm of a shotgun. I had worked on that peice for several says to get it back in shape. Finally had all the old stain off, all the dents out and had it sanded to perfection. I put the stain on and the color was exactly what I had imagined…it was...

    Hey all, I just got home from an antique tool barn where they had a 12" or so long western saw with a steel back. The two best saws both had at least an 3/16 inch bend in the tooth area while sighting down the blade, not a bow from front to back but within 1-2 inches along the...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am new to woodworking and to this forum so thanks in advance for any help offered. I just bought my first table saw, a used Delta 10" Contractors. So far I've been very happy with it. I am currently building a saw cart with drawers and space surrounding the unused space under the saw and...

    http://dayton.craigslist.org/mat/1108650385.html I just saw this on Craigslist…a little far for me to drive but I thought I would share. These look like they would make excellent workbench tops. Larry
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've got a garage shop that also houses a car. Because of this, I don't think it is feasible to just lock the whole shop to prevent a child from getting in and hurting themselves. While I'd like to think they would always be with a parent while in there, I think the reality is that as my kids...
