    From what I've read recently, Jim, if it's an American Chestnut and it's not all eaten up with blight, you might do well to give the guy whatever he asks...because you may never see one again. Then again, everything you read on the internet is true, right? Seriously, the American Chestnut was...

    Natural light for your shop - free

    Darn! Too little, too late, and too far away! We are looking at a possible new home and thinking about converting the free-standing 3-car garage into my new Man Cave. As you might imagine, I was wondering how much it would cost to put in 4 big windows to capture the natural light from that...

    Bookcase Build: Christmas Project & Christmas Gift

    You truly have some vision, talent, AND the skills to do some really great things, Kave! That feeling you experienced while spending time with Forrest is exactly what I was missing in NC; but now that we're back in the ARId ZONe it's all good. BTW: nice saw! Russ

    Need heart pine for trim

    Hi Sherry, I have a stack of heart pine reclaimed from a train warehouse structure built in the early 1800's. We are moving cross-country on Saturday (we hope) so you would have to move quickly, like today or tomorrow. These are boards we couldn't fit in the containers we're shipping...

    Yet another Wood ID

    A KEY indicator of Butternut is its weight, so if it feels significantly lighter than most other hardwoods - given its appearance, which we've already seen - you can bet it's Butternut.

    Thanks to Russ Denz

    Phil, as usual from my experience, is underplaying his own role in this. The reality is that it pretty much got dumped on him to pick up the ball, the same ball that I fumbled on the 50 yard line...and HE SCORED!! Congratulations to Phil on this, as well as to Don Derry. In addition to...

    Festool - Am I missing something?

    Let me add a new perspective, especially concerning the Kapex vs. the competition. I don't use a mitersaw a lot, yet I went through a Bosch and one other I don't recall in 2-3 years; I've had my Kapex 3 yrs now and not a single problem. IMHO Festool's QUALITY STANDARDS actually make it less...

    Latest Turning

    Charlie, The most significant compliment I believe there is for a woodturner is to become an artist. You, sir, are a true artist in my opinion. Wonderful creation!

    BIG THANK-YOU to Joe Scharle for his generosity

    I have a box full of 4" fittings of all varieties plus a box of 2" or 2 1/2" fittings and a number of length of the same size clear rigid dust tubing from Woodcraft if that will help (maybe make some runs from their shop vac?) I'm almost 2 hrs east of Raleigh and rarely get to the "big city"...

    Skew Qoustion

    Hi Darryl, According to Alan Lacer, the "skew-guru" in my opinion, the angle should be close to 70 degrees. He has a few youtube videos on his favorite subject - skew chisels - that are worth a look. I particularly like his own special curving/curved grind, as it is very versatile. Google...

    New NCWW Oureach Program

    James & Wally & others regarding pen blanks, The standard size that you can use to make almost any pen is 3/4 x 3/4 x 5 to 6". Larger sizes like 1 1/2 to 2" x 3"=/- are good for bottle stoppers. Besides those, longer, bigger spindle blanks, like from 2" square (and up) x 6 to 24" long make...
