    New to me no 6

    Picked this type 13 Stanley No 6 for $30. In the process of cleaning it up best I can now. I've removed most of the rust, need to hit it with a wire wheel to clean it up the rest of the way. The iron definitely needs sharpening, slight regrind to straighten the edge out. Next up is removing...

    Can't find picture/thread of table

    A few days ago I saw a thread, not saying 100% it was here but I'm 90% sure it was. There was a picture of a table, want to say it was an entryway/console table.

    Eastern Red Cedar? And price opinions

    Saw someone local selling this rough cut cedar for $200 for the lot. Looks to be eastern red to me but I'm horrible at wood recognition. Especially when rough cut. Says 1x6x8, some larger, some smaller. Roughly 40 boards total Probably a dumb question but is that a fair price?

    Small shop brainstorming

    So we are looking at moving and are currently renting as we weren't sure where we wanted to live. I work 100% remote so not tied to any particular locale. So my shop is a prefab 10x20 shed that is wired and insulated. Double doors on the long wall, the typical shed you see everywhere. But...
