Fellow LJ’s,I was having a discussion with a fellow woodworker the other day who is working with his boss (read:wife) to design a new coffee table for their living room. In the discussion, we were going over different traditional styles of design: arts & crafts, mid-century modern, shaker, etc.. I was trying to explain some of the nota...

Dumb Question - Pencil Sharpener - 55 replies

OK, so by clicking on the title of this post, you are already aware that this is going to be a stupid question (yes, they do exist).

Favorite method for attaching a table top - 17 replies

New To Me Laguna Table Saw - 6 replies

Fellow LJ’s,I recently bought a 2011 model of the Laguna MTS0300 “Platinum Series Tablesaw w/ Dovetail Mech Left-tilt” from my Father-In-Law at a steep family discount.

When is it time to replace a strop - 5 replies

Curious when you guys know it’s time to replace a leather strop. Normally I replace my strops every year or so when I notice the shine on my chisel and plane blades start to diminish… but it’s always kinda been a “feeling” and there is a solid chance it is just in my head and the new strop really isn’t any bet...
