    Commissioned Help '

    Do you have a detailed sketch and the wood? Based on the little picture, that would not be too difficult. Only problem is, I’m 4+ hrs away. Ideally, if you could mill and glue up the blank (perfect joints, no gaps anywhere!) it’s probably only a couple hours of lathe time.

    Well that makes sense

    A friend of mine solved the same problem by adding a second set of swivel casters immediately behind the original one’s basically creating a “dullie” hoist. He can max out the lift cylinder and still roll and steer a load.

    Vacuum Chuck Marks

    Getting a nasty black ring on my finish when I reverse a bowl to finish turning the bottom and sand/finish the outside. Aside from the special vacuum foam sheets, any other way to prevent this? I’m using the HoldFast brand of equipment. Thanks, Jeff

    There is no magic elixir that can be applied to stop the bleaching (greying) except an opaque film (paint) any stain or oil will have to be constantly maintained. Let her read this article and tell her that she can come to appreciate the "dynamic finish" that woods acquires naturally as it...

    Handling Plywood

    I'm remodeling a house and I'm actually paying someone to do all the casework for the new kitchen because some of it is quite complicated and I can't even come close to his cost. I found an excellent cabinet shop and before spending that much $ with them I spent some time actually in their shop...

    The "Frankeinstein" Method of Straightening Out Cupped Boards

    If his sawcuts were 3/4 of the thickness, then he planed it - the depth that he's driving those brads to hold the glued splines must be incredibly precise or they would come out the top surface. Also, like Mike said, pick better lumber. If he's doing that to make money, his time must be billed...

    Bizarre Find

    When I was a teenaged high school football player, I wanted to do something during a summer to get into good shape form the coming season. My father suggested I go work with a friend of his at his sawmill as an "offbearer". In addition to learning what real WORK was and getting into tremendous...
