    Drawer Slide Length

    I'm planning on replacing the worn, noisy epoxy drawer slides in my kitchen with K&V side-mount, self-close slides (8400 Series).

    The passing of Charles Neil (Dec 21, 2019)

    I did not see anything posted here as yet but figured others would be as shocked by the news as I was. His instructions were recommended to me when I first took up woodworking. I appreciated his no nonsense approach and his comfortable talent. RIP. His family appears to have started a...

    Today's Public Service Announcement...

    Chisels remain very sharp. Sharpening chisels this afternoon and a small Stanley socket chisel slipped out of my hand while I was tapping the handle to be ensure it was on tightly. One compression bandage and two band-aids later and I'm back in business (working on plane irons now). Carry on...

    Ask the NCWW: Vertical Ladder Rung Spacing?

    I'm about to build a twin mattress loft bed for my 10 year old daughter. (Tweens need more room!) Here's a Sketchup. (It's lagged into the walls on two sides at the headboard and along the right hand rail.) It will be built of SYP, stained white to match the "White Stain" Ikea furniture...

    Hole Saw Recommendations?

    It's about time to abandon my 20 year old ACE Hardware, generic, hole saw kit. I was hoping some of you might have an opinion (or ten opinions!) about any products on the market that seem to work better than something I might pick up at Harbor Freight. The only requirement I have is that the...

    Waterlox - This method actually works great!!!!!

    We've all heard and most have experienced that Waterlox is great looking when done right and generally easy to apply but infuriatingly slow at drying so environmental factors can lead to problems (bubbles, dust nibs, other weird imperfections of unknown origin that appear to relate to flow...

    Finish on a Theodore Alexander dining room table?

    A co-worker just caught me to ask whether knew what finish would have been used on her Theodore Alexander dining room table. Before guessing, I thought I'd ask here as I'm sure one of you would know. She reports that something was left on the table for a while and now has left a eight inch...

    The bane of the WW hobbyist

    ... we just move too slowly. Two weeks ago, I milled down my rough walnut down to beautiful S4S pieces, jointed, glued them up, and cut them to final length. (I'm building a very small case for my MIL to hold her cable box and Wi-Fi router.) Returned to the garage last night to mark up the...

    Craigslist Walnut - This you?

    I sent an email saying I was looking for 40-50bf. I received a response that this wood was at his house. No city. No name. Just a phone number. Before I call, drive to some strange place, and ... am never seen again, I thought I'd check if this was one of y'all...

    Take Care of your Eyes

    Everyone on this forum already knows this. Most everyone on this forum wears eye protection. Back in 2013, just as I was getting into woodworking as a hobby, I made a quick stop in the garage to sand through a few more of the unassembled pieces of a large table. Just a few minutes on my way...
