  2. Rocking chairs

    I made these rocking chairs for grand kids. On the sea shell chair I put the four cutout on the legs. On the baseball chairs I put glove,empire,penet & sneaker. I dropped my iPad and cannot get the camera working I'll keep trying. Mike
  3. Crooked Cedar Porch Swing

    My first Cedar porch swing can be seen in an earlier project posting. The lessons I learned from that first attempt are all incorporated here in this second one. This second swing was ordered from a woman who saw the first one but wanted a few changes. It was much easier to build and I didn't...

    Several years ago a friend of my son's opened up a little shop. He had some connection where he could get the stuff that people returned to Costco for pennies on the dollar and resell it. I went to visit him a few times and got some good deals. One time I noticed he had two Campbell Hausfeld 4...
  6. Wood & Lumber
    Is there anything else for a woodworking fanatic worth seeing in or near Birmingham Alabama? I'm planning a day trip to the Woodcraft Store there one weekend soon. It's 178 miles north of where I am in N.W. Florida; I figure four hours. Might even make it an overnighter if there's somewhere...
  7. Wood & Lumber
    I suspect I'm not the only one, but I routinely rummage through the bargain bins at the local big boxes and smaller lumber-yard that I frequent. This weekend's score was three very clean 2×4s x 30" long $0.49 each, and a piece of maple, 6/4×3+ x 70" that got ripped and cut into three 33" long...
  8. Wood & Lumber
    Hi all, I'm brand new to the forum so I apologize if this isn't the right place to ask this. I'm brainstorming a dining table and I'd really love to use some fancy exotic wood for the tabletop - specifically, I have my heart set on Brazilian Koa/Tigerwood. Unfortunately I'm in a fairly rural...

    I'm curious as to whether I'm alone in my experiences with companies these days. I've been doing a lot of revamping of my shop in recent months, so I've been doing a lot of shopping and research with a variety of companies - in person, by phone, and by email. I subscribe to the "more flies with...

    I need to purchase a jointer, would like to upgrade my planer as well (or fix it and get it running right), so I've been working on a Google Sheets spreadsheet, thought I'd share it, and if anyone wants I can share it directly from my Google drive. I thought it might be helpful for any other...

    I'm a hobby woodworker looking at expanding my shop and capabilities, and I'd like to buy a general purpose jointer. What are your thoughts on something like the Wahuda 8" jointer? https://www.wahudatools.com/product-p/50180cc-whd.htm It seems like it might be a bit cheesy and too short, but...

    Greetings, homettes and homies, I hope you are all well. I am enjoying a bit of downtime, and have used up most of it it pondering a most deep subject: Making Purchasing Decisions. As a tool nerd, I love any excuse to buy something new and shiny, or something old that radiates coolness. I also...

    I am feeling tech-illiterate, because for the life of me, I cannot find reasonable assembled dimensions of the 36-725T2 table saw. The only place I have found where someone gives a straight answer is in the Amazon product Q&A, but the numbers he give seems too large. (63"x41") Is that right...
  14. Finishing
    We were in the paint store the other day, buying some stain for our exterior woodwork, and I noticed they had pure tung oil on the shelf. Asked the sales guy what the price was, and it came up around $150/gallon (with a 15% contractor discount if I opened an account). Call it $125/gallon. Plus...

    Raw materials I started out with a fairly hefty workbench from the house's previous owner, but it's in a place not appropriate for a woodshop, and it's not easy to move to where I do want my shop (the garage). Given that the space that it's in is my main art studio, and it's useful for that, I...

    New Year...New Hobby I have been known to take up a hobby or 37. At 42, on the cusp of 43, and well into the 'balding' years, I have decided that, in lieu of a midlife crisis, I would take up woodworking. Don't get me wrong, a new car and a 27 year old with huge, firm, hands would be wonderful...

    What kind of day has it been? The last time I sat down and shared my insane ramblings, I was giddy with excitement over a very small, very simple trophy I was working on. It was so simple, in fact, that the only tools it required were a drill and a sander. And it turned out great-except for...
