    Old Routers

    No, this isn't about that thing you plug in to your computer. These are old woodworking tools that I thought might interest a couple folks here. They are all in one mans collection (James Price), and he uses most of them. This one was made in 1621. Article and pics of the others...

    Tree ID and split firewood ID

    My brother lives in WNC near Dillsboro at around 2500ft elevation. These trees are growing around his house but no idea what they are. The first two pics are of the same tree and the next two pics are of what appears to be a different species already split into firewood. Can anyone definitively...

    I received this in a email message from a friend. I thought it was interesting as well as entertaining. Only hand tools used in the making of a rustic rocker from a tree stump. Enjoy

    Baby Cradle JIT thanks to FredP! (Pic heavy!)

    A few weeks ago I had a project due but not enough time or talent to do it myself. Who would you call? Well, I called the fastest NCWWer in the east, FredP. Fred graciously agreed to help me pull it off. I brought the hard maple and breakfast and Fred took care of almost everything else! He...

    Opinion on W Butcher Plane needed

    First let me say, I know nothing about planes!! My neighbor was kind enough to give me this plane after I commented he should leave it to me in his will:wink_smil. I'm not venturing into the neander world (YET) but was wondering if it is worth restoring. The only parts are the iron and body. No...

    Pronounce Bocote???

    Ok all you sawdust covered Woodaholics...What is the correct pronunciation for Bocote:dontknow:? I've looked all over the internet (well, most of it) and can't find a dictionary/encylopedia that has it listed as the PRIMARY word. I've found it referenced as a common name for Cordia but no clue...

    What makes TS inserts grow????

    This has me stumped:dontknow:! I have a Delta Contractor Table Saw purchased about 3 years ago. I replaced the standard inset with a Zero clearance insert almost immediately.

    Finally turned another pen!

    Haven't had much shop time lately. Here's my feeble attempt at another acrylic pen AND photography!:roll: It's Mother of Pearl with a Satin Pearl Kit. Both pics are the same pen w/different backgrounds. What can I do to improve the pics? (I know only more practice will help the pen turnings)...

    Air Purifier Location

    I just purchased the JDS 750ER. I remember seeing a post earlier about location of the unit, i.e. distance from wall, center of room, distance from ceiling, etc. I did a search on "air filter location", "air purifier location", and others, but couldn't find it. Does anyone remember this...

    Can you identify this?

    It's not really what I would call a woodworking tool, but I think it's wood related. A friend found this in the woods near Ft. Bragg. I don't know what it is. It has an "A" with wings on the handle. It's not the "Airborne" symbol but looks similar. I've searched the WWW and asked everyone I know...

    First Pen, NO laughing

    Well, here's my first stab at pen turning. There are a few flaws, but overall, I think it turned out ok, for a beginner. This will probably be my shop pen. Sorry for the picture quality (there are so many things I need to work on!:roll:). Critiques welcomed... Thanks again to Gator for all his...
