    220v extension cords

    I have a 220v heater that i would like to move 4-5ft further than the plug will allow. I saw some dryer extension cords that I think will work but a quick google of that seems to say don't do it. I don't particularly want to get an electrician to run an outlet closer to where I need it. I do...

    veneer sources

    Wondering where some of you buy raw wood veneer from. I bought some from JoeWoodworker to try and also got what he listed as "balance veneer". Problem for me is the balance veneer I got looks too nice, lol. I browse around on ebay some too, just looking for some other sources to bookmark.

    How do I square this.

    Doing a dry fit here and am not sure how to square this. I've seen alot of videos on how to check for square with a diagonal measure but not what to do if it's out of square.

    Stop the Bleed

    I took this class last night from my firearms instructor and thought it might be something woodworkers would be interested in. Main reason I took it is I drive between WS and Gboro everyday and never know when I might need it. We work with very sharp objects and one slip up can be disastrous...

    I want to cut concave curves in 2 1/4" thick ash. Wood length is about 28 inches and curve about 1 inch from the edge so it's not a very sharp curve. Normally I'd do it with jigsaw but after watching some youtube videos thought I'd like to try it with a bow saw. Will be cleaned up afterwards...
