    Almost had myself convinced

    I noticed that you live in Pikeville. I live off Hwy 13 about 3/4 mile North of the new bypass. I have a garage full of woodworking tools and I've even been known to make a few things. I'd be glad to help you mill lumber, build a piece of furniture, etc. PM me if you're interested. :thumbs_up

    Need to find someone with a 15" or wider planer in Goldsboro area

    In making a cutting board for a friend, I had 8/4 purpleheart and maple in 7 3/4" widths. At the last minute I decided to add 1/4" to each slat so I wouldn't waste the last inch of wood from each board. For some reason this didn't register in my brain that instead of ending up with a 12" width...

    Wood Rasps

    This is a copy/paste from his blog. Rasps to give you superpowers: I use and am very fond of Auriou rasps, which are made in France and beat the pants off any other rasp I’ve tried, vintage or modern. You might disagree with me, but I’ve made my choice. Whenever I mention Auriou rasps...

    Best Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals ??

    Short Answer: 40's & 24's. Long Answer: Back when I first started buying Parallel Clamps, I bought the longer ones. My theory being "you can clamp a small glue up with a large clamp but you can't clamp a large glue up with a small clamp". Then as my budget allowed, I started buying the...

    Cutting Down Trees

    I'm not used to cutting down trees specifically for milling, but there's this "warning" in the back of my head that there's a "best time" of the year to do this. A friend of mine has cherry and walnut trees that he needs removed and he's offering me the wood. They don't need immediate removal...

    Amazon Prime Increasing from $79 to $99

    I purchased prime last year because I ordered from Amazon so often and it included Videos as well. Suddenly they're collecting NC Sales Tax and now a 41% increase (I paid $70, not $79), in membership. I think they've run me away.
