    Rough Cut! Hooray!!

    Tommy Mac and his show, Rough Cut, were back on UNC-TV at 3 PM today. Which one of my NCWW colleagues do I thank for this? Back when UNC stopped airing his shows, my repeated complaining through e-mails and letters was apparently ignored. I gave up my efforts months ago. Anyway, thanks to...

    1" rabbet cut

    I'm making the Bright Idea Candle Holder featured in Wood Magazine (July '09; issue 191) and have run into a snag. The parts on this project are small.

    Can I Cut This With a Bandsaw? Final Pix

    I epoxied some 10-gauge wire from electrical cable into a block of maple and cut it into the shape of a Christmas tree. I next want to slice it up for ornaments. Can I do this on my bandsaw with a wood cutting blade? Everything I can find on the Internet says "you can cut thin sheets of...

    Current value for rough cut WO

    Howdy guys! It's been while since I've logged on. I was wondering what the going rate per BF is for 8/4 rough sawn white oak. I tried to Google up the info and the prices are all over the place. Since WO is a fairly common wood here in central NC, I thought one of you might have an idea of the...

    From rough cut to spice rack in under an hour

    I made and finished this spice rack today. Took less than 1 hour from rough cut lumber to hanging on the wall. You may not be able to tell but the shelves have a 1/4 x 3/8" lip in the front, so the bottles don't fall out. If you can't tell that means I did a good glue job. I evoked some of...

    Ridgid 12", 100 tooth Fine cut blade $59

    Made my trip to HF this morning and got the two HVLP sprayers I wanted for $9.99 each. After lunch, stopped at HD and they had reduced the price of their 12", 100 tooth fine cut off blade to $59, from $74. Didn't think to check and see if was an Italian made blade though.

    Which flush cut router bit to "cross-cut" walnut?

    I will be cutting the top for my dresser to size soon and but it is too large to safely cross-cut on my table saw. My circular saw is terrible and doesn't have enough support to make a square cut so my plan is to cut close to the final size on the band saw or with a jig saw and then clamp a...

    Rough Cut Walnut $1 / bf

    If I wasn't heading out of town first thing tomorrow morning, I might have a different take on this... Maybe if someone gets most or all of this I can get some of it. I think this is from the same guy that sold the mahogany and the zebrawood.
