    "The Sun of Uzbekistan" - "The Sun of the Countries" project My Mom was born in Uzbekistan, and when I started to work on the "The Sun of the Countries" project, I knew I would create the Sun of this country also. When the pattern was done earlier today, I showed it to my Mom and she said she...

    Broken Knife My Allan Goodman scimitar blade knife broke! This was the 0.030 steel blade. It took me a year to get used to this blade, but once I had used it a while, I really liked it. The curve of the blade makes a regular cutting movement into a slicing action and the knife glided through...

    I have given up on my Craftsman 21833 table saw. After months and months of trying to repair the alignment issues it seems that it has beaten me. I thought I had it licked several times. But I posed on CL and someone responded with a Hitachi C10LA table saw for $400 (price is negotiable). I...

    This is the first chain saw carving that I have completed. The indian is carved from a white pine log approximately 36" in diameter and 7' in height. Took me most of the day to carve and paint, but it was a lot of fun. Visit my web site if you would like to look...

    I have been making wall sculptures for a little while that consist of a 1/2" MDF backboard with hundreds of small wood blocks glued to the surface. I started using plywood as a backboard but had to much issues with warping. Using MDF seemed to fix that problem until this last large project I had...

    This question popped into my head the other day while sanding, quite a zen activity, and I started wondering if there were any gold nuggets of wisdom that I could get from the rolls of LJs. For me, I would say what improved my fine woodworking skills the most was the idea of "sneaking up" on a...

    I am planning on upgrading my Dust Collector (hereinafter "DC") with the Wynn 35a canister filter. From what I have read this will increase my suction. I was wondering if there is a quick, easy, and cheap way of measuring the suction before and after the upgrade?

    I happened to be in the big "L" the other day looking for something else when I saw a kit for Milescraft router bushings with a router plate. I know nothing about these and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them? Thanks in advance.

    A client ordered two Walnut isolation tables for his stereo amps (end grain cutting boards) and wanted a glossy finish to them. I had originally put a coat of Varathane on the bottom of one of the boards but didn't like the look so I applied Deft Danish Oil to the rest of that board and to the...

    Well… two months ago I said I was back and I said I was going to be setting up my workshop. I finally got it done. You can go on my profile and see the pics that I added of it. It's not some elaborate, fancy or nice shop… but it's pretty dang awesome in my book. Especially compared to not having...

    Just curious if any of the ingenious innovators here have ever tried (and/or succeeded) in creating a "replacement" top for their portable table saw - similar, perhaps, to the Rousseau PortaMax Jr 2600 (links + image below). I inquired about the construction of the product from Rousseau, and...

    I am a new member and this is my first post, but I have to say thanks to everyone in the Lumber Jocks network. This site has been a great resource for me for some time now and I have appreciated all the good reviews and comments on several topics. I recently decided it was time to get a dust...

    Happy 4th everyone! A friend's dad cut down some trees in his backyard and was splitting them into firewood. I told him to send me a picture of it so he did and I'm wondering if someone can help me identify what wood this is and if it'd be worth trying to turn some of this into lumber? I know...

    I am by NO means a professional (even calling myself "small time" is a stretch), but I have been getting a fair bit of interest in my furniture and I am hoping some of you guys might be able to give me some guidelines to follow when pricing my pieces. So far I have built either for myself or...
