    Cutting Boards Finished.....

    Finally finished 2 cutting boards that I've been working on. One is Purple heart and hard maple, the other scraps (poplar?). The Performax 16-32 was a lot of help on this project!

    Cutting boards (thanks DaveO)

    I stole borrowed the idea from DaveO. He failed to mention what a complete pain in the burl these are to make. Very time consuming too. I have done a total of 3 glue-ups. I used maple and cherry with 1/16" walnut strips between. I have to take them out of the clamps, run them through the...

    trying to find the few QS boards in a mtn. of FS

    hi... with the projects i do, i pretty much exclusively use quarter sawn wood, and most of the lumber yards i get the wood only carry flat sawn wood in the species i am looking for, so i end up spending a good amount of time digging through boards looking at the end grain to find the few pieces...

    Planing old PT boards?

    I guess this is sort of woodworking. Would there be any problem in removing the pressure treated decking boards that make up my front steps and run them through my planer (Dewalt 733) ? There about 5 years old and have been pressure washed every year and re-sealed with Cabots, but they're...

    Yet More Cutting Boards

    (Many thanks to DaveO for his tutorial for his boards, which inspired me to try these.) :icon_thum Or, since these are long grain instead of end grain, cheese/serving boards. Glue up 2 (or more, an even number) of contrasting woods to have blanks about 12" by 15". After the glue dries...

    I am going to do a bit of tongue and groove work on this tea house that I am making. I have a 1/4" slot cutting bit and the tongue will be done with a straight bit and fence. I would like to put a little chamfer where the joints come together. I know I could do it with a block plane, but I have...

    Jointing Boards

    Learned this long ago, realised that i knew better today :lol: When jointing 2 or more boards that I will edge glue together I first mark a triangle for alignment. When i joint them, I joint one "face up" to the jointer fence, the next "face down" to the fence. the logic of this is that you can...

    shooting boards

    I was just taking a look at insomniacs site and wondered how many of you have built and used these, along with donkeys ears as well - personally, I love them, I like the crisp edge that shooting end grain with a plane gives.
