Looking for someone with a CNC in the Cincinnati area. - 0 replies

I have a jewelry box project I would like to do for my granddaughter’s graduation. In the past I have used laser etches with lighter woods. For this one I would like to use either mahogany or padauk.

Problem sharpening chip carving knife - 5 replies

I have a problem getting a perfectly straight edge on my chip carving knife (Wayne Barton style). On most knives it would not be a problem, but with this style knife the tip does not cut into the corner bottom.

Franklin chair plans - Project 5685 - 8 replies

This is my first post here. Have looked in your window a few times, but just joined today, so excuse the flubs as I try to get acclimated to your forum setup. Several months ago at a garage sale, I saw a combination chair/step ladder. I have been looking for plans to make one. Finally found picture of project here. Can I get plans for it some...
