    Disappointed with my sharpening service how to handle?

    I've been using them for years and the do a good job, but I just got my Forrest Dado King set back and it is so totally botched its ridiculous! Horribly uneven grooves. Needless to say I was totally PO'd. I am going tomorrow to pick up another dado set I left off, an almost new Dadonator...

    Compressor failure - can anyone tell whats wrong?

    I posted this over on Lumberjocks but thought there might be someone knowledgeable here. Here's the history: 5HP IR compressor (SS5). Walked outside one night heard a God-awful noise coming from shop kind of a combination of a diesel and a jake brake. The compressor sounded like it was going...

    Yes, you can route cast iron!

    I've seen it but just couldn't wrap my head around it. That is, until I routed miter slot extensions into my outfeed table (its not installed in photo) and found out after the fact that the router must have slipped a bit and I routed a little of the cast iron. The reason I mentioned this is I...

    T track clamp

    I've been looking for a while and finally found these. All the others I found only work with a plate. 5/16 T track bolt fits right in it!

    Locating a sawmill/planning a trip

    Been looking for 12/4 walnut and cherry. So far, I've located some at the Hardwood store and I will stop by and see Eric at the sawmill in Raeford, too. I live in NE FL & wondering if there are any other sawmills in a reasonable distance off the I-95 corridor.

    Image source for Antitque Furniture

    On a recent visit to Charleston, SC we toured a couple homes with museum pieces of 18th Century furniture. Quite impressive. I found this while researching the Edward Holmes bookcase and thought it would be useful to some of y'all: Chipstone Furniture Collection at the University of Wisconsin...

    Removing warp from a door with heat.

    LOL. This isn't the first time something has ended up in the burn pile. This was an arched door that I forgot to check for flatness in the clamps. But my point is that depending on the part and stage of a project, it is quicker to make a new one than correct an issue. Even though you may...

    Advice on solving a possum issue..

    I'm posting this here cause I think there are enough good ole country boys to help me figure this out. Saw a possum in the back yard a few times he is obviously affected by some nervous disease, shaking, walking in circles, and looks pretty decripit. Before I could get my 410 and get out there...

    Well here is the end result. The top was noticeably darker after the gel stain, but I think it adds depth. Thanks to Josh and Scott for some great lumber (qswo and walnut) you know who you are :-) To summarize the process for those interested: 1. 2 coats dye stain (1:1 medium brown/amber...

    Guys don't do this!!

    I've had a habit of leaving stuff like rulers, etc in the well of my fence for years and years. The other day, some how right at the end of a cut, this allen wrench somehow flipped out and landed where you see it just as I was shutting down the saw. Luckily I was leaning over toward the switch...

    My turn for a CL deal....FINALLY!

    I'm usually a dollar short and a day late. I was going to pull the trigger on the Rikon mortiser on sale at Woodcraft last Thursday low and behold Wed night I get a notification from my CL app "mortiser". It was a Powermatic floor model. Made the hour drive to check it out. It was hardly...
