    Recommendations on dovetail joint guides or templates?

    I just entered a long post in the DIY section about our upcoming kitchen and bath renovations and our need to find a great designer to work with on the projects. As I think about how I will approach the cabinet work, these big projects might be a good time for me to upgrade my approach to drawer...

    For 25+ years I have been brushing on varnish coats and am always thinking that there has to be a better and quicker way. That said, I know nothing about spray units, spray guns. viscosity, etc... Does anyone have a suggestion on a simple, relatively low cost spray system / method that produces...

    Is it worthwhile to sharpen table saw blades or just buy new?

    Over the years I have had marginal results with having my saw blades sharpened. The sharpened blades do not seem to cut as cleanly as new and they do not stay sharp for very long. As a result, I generally will buy a new blade vs. having them sharpened. So I have this stack of sawblades and yet...

    Has anyone out there worked with Beech lumber before?

    Hi all, I have an opportunity to pick up a stack of beech lumber. I have not worked with this material before. Does anyone have any experience working with it? This is rough-sawn, kiln dried material. How does it machine and any issues with chipping and/or tear out? How does it take a finish...

    Do belt sander belts go bad over time?

    In an earlier post, I mentioned that I am finally back in action from a woodworking standpoint after a three and a half year absence due to living in a rental property. Now that we have our own home again I am busy making replacement cabinets. I had a lot of 3" x 18" belts left which had now...

    Our family recently bought a house in Climax NC and FINALLY, after three plus years of renting and the tools being in storage, I have a functioning woodworking shop again. Life is good. The house needs quite a bit of work as it sat empty for 3 years before we bought it. Naturally, one of my...

    Help please from a High Point, NC woodworker

    I hope that someone reasonably local to the High Point, NC area can help me out. I am fairly new to North Carolina and as a result most of my woodworking tools are still buried deep in our storage unit. I am having "sawdust withdrawls" resulting from the separation from my tools so have been...

    Woodworking Industry employment opportunity

    I joined the NC Woodworker website shortly after moving here from Wisconsin. What I didn't mention is that the job that brought me here from my home state is in the woodworking industry. I work for Cefla Finishing America where I oversee the operations. We make very high end sanding and...

    Wood trade anyone?

    I build canoe paddles and like to use rare and exotic wood in them as accents. I am able to work with smaller size pieces as I tend to use them as accents only. If any of you out there consider this smaller stuff scrap, I might be interested. I brought with me from Wisconsin (recent move) a...
