    Sorry about that. I had a similar cut and mine healed well - didn't hit any nerves and I sure hope that is the case with you. I wish you a speedy recovery

    FOR SALE.....Walnut, rough cut, air dried (Sold)

    Just making some room. I found I really do not like working with walnut. I do not get along too well with the walnut dust. The short stock developed some twist as it was most likely too dry with not enough air flow. All the long stock was just fine. I hope you have been well since we last...

    Alan, It was the same batch. I didn't use too much of it. Turned out to be about 400 BF. I cannot recall what I paid for it but I feel sure it was more than I got. Do you remember? The walnut went to a member from Florence SC

    Planking the boat

    Great job on one hell of an undertaking. My hat's off to you! I have an idea of what you are going through from my kayak build. Obviously your attention span is much greater than mine but I am thinking of giving it one more try and building a strip canoe. I am going to make an effort to come...

The frame to assemble it on is complete and all the strips that are needed have been cut and milled with convex and concave edges. The strips are mahogany with a few striped maple for contrast, All the...

Had a dozen bar stools...

    Longest dust control run?

    I too recommend the ClearVue system. I have had mine for over twenty years. Bill Pentz's site is the most helpful info I have found. I would take a hard look at the all steel cyclone on the ClearVue site with the 8" main trunk. Might be a bit of overkill but still less expensive than Oneida. Get...

    Anyone here have a ClearVue CV1800 or CVMax?

    Looks great. You are going to be very pleased with that system. I have had mine for over twenty years and never even a hiccup. This past year I decided to do away with the filters and went straight thru the wall to the outside. I see no evidence of any dust outside although I may build a muffler...
