door casings - 2 replies

Apologies for the sideways pic. I’d appreciate thoughts on how to trim the doors where they “meet”. The door casing is a windsor 1 1/16” X 3 1/2” style casing and they interfere with each other as the reveal to inside corner of the solid door is 3 1/8” and the reveal to inside corner of the glass door is...

contractor saw dust collection - 7 replies

I’m hoping someone here remembers or can find a posting that showed a c-man 113 style contractor saw with a backing that allowed the motor to tilt without having to remove one or more stuck on panels/covers to the wide open back of this style saw. I can’t recall if I saw it here or on Woodnet. Any help would be appreciated.

ryobi 1600 drum sander paper installation - 3 replies

I’ve searched the forum and any tips which might provide assitance elude me. The sander performs very well when roughing down end grain cutting boards using 80 grit paper. The stumbling block is changing the paper when the strip wears out. The left side is no issue as its accessible. It takes over an hour to get the the pre-cut roll int...

scoring cuts in veneered material, like melamine - 8 replies

I needed to rip pieces of melamine coated material for a project.

I happened onto this video @ ...

I’ve started making end grain cutting boards and treating them with food safe mineral oil. To those of you who have made similar projects, how long does the mineral take to dry/cure to the point where the cutting board can be handled without feeling “oily”?

I’m going to try making end grain cutting boards. The first attempt is with construction pine just to see what kinds of issues are part of making these boards.

anyone ever deal with MTM Wood - 10 replies

I’m looking to start making end grain cutting boards and MTM Wood in (apparently) Russia makes some fabulous cutting boards. I cant, however, tell if its possible to buy plans on his website or just finished items. the price of one item was 16,000 rubles, which is just under $270US, so i’m thinking thats for the finished cutting bo...

forums viewing has changed? - 14 replies

today, when i logged into lumberjocks, instead of seeing a topic and a few words concerning it within an area (like power tool), i see a topic with a much greater part of the initial posting in a thread. this means i only get to see 2 or 23 threads at one time on my screen. have i inadvertently changed something? and if i have, can i change i...
