    Croquet Mallets

    Orientation of contractor saw on a mobile cabinet

    I moved again overseas, from Japan to Belgium, from a military base with a woodshop to one without. So, I had to purchase a table saw that could be shipped through the mail. The local items were either to cheap or to expensive. I got a nice DeWalt 7480 contractor saw from Grizzly, shipped for...

    Best source for stainless steel bottle stoppers?

    Seems like all of the suppliers have slightly different models. Think I prefer the stainless steel stoppers and the type with the o-rings that fit into grooves rather than the silicone sleeve, but the prices seem to vary widely amongst the suppliers. I have buying them direct from Ruth Niles...

    I am needing a grinder to sharpen turning tools, almost solely bowl and spindle gouges. The Woodcraft slow speed grinder has been popular, but I can't seem to find it listed on their website and I don't need a Tormek. Any ideas where to look?

    Mixing shellac

    For some reason I have trouble making a 2 lb cut mixture of shellac. The many directions say a 2lb cut is 2lbs of shellac flakes in a gallon of alcohol. So, I don't need nearly a gallon so I reduce down the recipe to 4 ounces of shellac in 16 fluid ounces of alcohol and the dewaxed flakes...

They are still fairly sharp, but I notice the paring knife and the next longer one, which get used all of the time, are not as sharp as they used to be. They were razor sharp when first purchased. I looked for a sharpening place...

    My workshop in Japan

    A couple of months ago I got some very good advice on building a router table. Many suggested that I would want to build a full size table and would regret it later if I didn't, so I thought I would post a picture of my little workshop, a shed, 8'x10', equipped with 15" bandsaw, drill press...
