    Quick searches on the web and here have yielded nothing. I bought a lot of harbor freight's moving dollies because of the price but they are the non-locking variety. I was thinking of ways to lock them. Is something I can jam into the wheel to lock them? If not what about locking of the swivel...

    So i picked up some spalted maple the other day, looked really good and was cheap so figured I'd give it a shot. After looking through some older posts, some people have showed concern about using it. I know it's a fungus that causes it but figured it being kiln dried that shouldn't matter but...
  3. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I've seen people searching for good designs to purchase in various places and I've just started wondering how much interest exists out there if I were to start creating and publishing sets of plans on my website. Anyone that's paid attention to my posts over the years will know that I've been...

    Hi all, I'm currently located in the Philippines and I'm finding it hard to find a 2nd hand belt driven saw that I could ship into the country. I don't have a big budget but I'd like to hear what you guys think. I was thinking of getting one from Ebay but the only problem is that they don't...

    I sure would appreciate some information on sources for box hinges with stops. I don't have a problem with using the brusso hinges on the more expensive boxes but there is no way to justify them on the less expensive boxes. Thanks in advance for the info. helluvawreck aka Charles...
  6. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Alright this really didn't fit in wood forums anywhere . . but I'm refinishing an old Stanley toolbox (my great grandfathers as it were) and I'm trying to polish the hinges. Well, I tried a pre packaged polishing cloth and didn't quite understand brass plating. . .so I wore through the brass...
  7. Finishing
    So I thought I was doing the right thing to get galvanized nails for some cedar trim I am putting on a building. Now I am getting the dark streaks that I don't want. Is there any sort of sealer I can put on the nails to stop this on the existing work and anything I can do for the rest of the...

    I have a Norwood shapener and tooth setter. I bought them when I had my mill. They literally were used twice. The mill has been sold and the buyer did not want the shapener and tooth setter. They are in near new condition. I will post pics ASAP. Shipping won't be cheap but I'll cover it. I just...
  9. Wood & Lumber
    Hi all, I read somewhere that your firewood pile might be a place to find spalted maple. The curious person I am, I went digging. I noticed a black line on one piece and decided to open it up. Well guess what, it sure does have figure. I really don't know how I would mill this to workable...

    I'm planning some loose tenon doors (modern flat frame/panel look). The frame will be hardwood, the panels either hardwood or plywood. I'd like the drawer faces to be of hardwood and to mimick the door look i.e. vertical oriented pieces of hardwood (frame) on either side of a horizontal piece...

    I am going to be building a spalted maple table 42" x 60" with breadboard ends. I want the finished thickness to be 2", but am having trouble finding quality material in that thickness. I am thinking to use 1" material and on each side laminate a another 1" piece to the top board so the edge...

    I hope I didn't screw up I purchased Spalted Maple wood for a table for my son and his wife's wedding present. It has many fine line black "spalted" marks and generally feels quite hard. I started glue up today and had no issues, it ripped well and the glue up and clamping went well. It...

    In case anyone needs a reminder to not wear long sleeves in the shop, last night I responded to a guy who was reminded of this. I wish I could have taken a photo of this! He was working in a local lumber place and his sleeve was pulled in by a sander, which was the planer style. It pulled is...

    I am making a table from 7/8" thick spalted maple with a border of 1 3/8" rustic maple. The rustic maple is used to make the top appear thicker. I planned to put breadboard ends on the tabletop, but have an issue. The table is supposed to be 60" long and I planned to have two 6" wide...

    Fellow Lumberjocks, for the edification of our readers (and for my curiousity), have any of you personally used or inspected closely the below MAXIMUM-branded (Canada only - Canadian Tire in-house brand) compound sliding miter saw (CSMS) recently made available 1-2 months ago? Any thoughts...

    I have a length of 2" thick by 11" width red oak about 6' long. Nothing remarkable. I want to make signs for outdoors in the garden. My thought is to cut the oak into 12" lengths, engrave something into the side facing our path and drilling two holes in the bottom for 1/2" copper tubing that...
