    Mother of neccessity Chisel Plane

    Staining Mahogany

    Willem When I saw your title I really wondered what the context of your question or comment was going to be. Can't answer your question , but I have a similar one. I recently refinished a portion of a desk for a client. He said it was solid cherry, and I thought that might have been...

    Need Another Small Piece of Wood

    And if you need a tad more than 3/4" 'square' from a pen blank (and only a 1/4" thick), the diagonal will allow for this. Of course the grain pattern may differ, but for your purposes that MAY not matter.

    To Insulate or not to Insulate

    Roof/ceiling insulation is most important, then walls. If you are planning AC or heat in there, even with a un-insulated end wall (door), I would expect this would be worth the effort/expense. The longer you stay there the more worth it this will be. If this is a multi-year occupancy place...

    Belt Disc Sander

    Robert I have an floor stand version of this - mine is a generic model, likely from Grainger. I use mine a lot - anything from sharpening my turning tools for the lathe, to multiple sanding tasks for furniture and boxes. Mine is 9" disc and a 6x48" belt . Before I got mine, I wondered how...

    My Coronavirus response

    Jim I try to choose my own projects as opportunities to try something new, so I like your thinking. I also enjoy the challenge of using existing materials, or re-purposing materials. On drawer construction, just be sure that this will be a box that will hold together. Larger dresser drawers...

    My Coronavirus response

    Nice 'isolated' work Jim. What's the drawer plan? I think I will end up being able to tackle and maybe finish some of those projects on my list too. Time will tell 'how isolated' I need to be, and for how long.

    Drill Press Table?

    I too move my DP table often - at least most times when I do use my DP. I too would like a larger table. My guess is that the larger table interferes with the crank to raise and lower the table. If so, design a opening in the (larger) worktable surface that allows turning of the crank and...
