    This is being carried over from another thread where it might be overlooked becuase of its topic. Travis Porter & I both were thinking of buying this edge sander. So I went looking for some prices. The following were NOT negotiated, they were the results of asking the right questions. 1. The...

    Disk vs combo vs edge sanders

    What does a disk sander do that the belt on a combo sander or edge sander wouldn't do? I'm sure as soon as someone tells me, I'll be embarrassed, But right now, I just don't see it

    Any rules of thumb for eccentric edge clamps?

    I am going to make a set of 4 eccentric edge clamps to fit 3/4" round dog holes. I was thinking of going with a mostly round tear drop shape with the post off center to one side (actually both sides; a pair each way since every now and then the direction matters). Anyway, I wondered if there...

    It's a bit rough; the first thing I have done with a "real" bowl gouge. I said I was going to just stick with spindles, but some of the wood I have collected just cries out for it...

    edge glue ups

    I'm getting better results strength-wise edge gluing boards together to make up wide panels with my tablesaw than I do with my jointer. I know strange... but is true never the less...

    Watch the edge of edge tools!

    Thought I would share a safety lesson I learned the other night. Sorry for the length of the story! I (like many others here) took advantage of the Hartville Tool turning tool sale and got me a new Sorby 3/8" beading and parting tool. It is like a bedan tool but has a double bevel like a...

    Advise plz - edge joining

    I'm fixing on edge joining (glue up) a 1x12-8 chunk of QSRO that would make a 1x24-4 table top but I'm going to hack it back to a 7/8 x 21 x 39. Should I put a couple of cross grain braces to hold the thing flat? If so how far should the be spaced apart? Thanks

    Arched Walnut Dining Table...Completed...pics at end of thread

    I have finally finished the rough out of the arched dining table frame. LOML found a pic and I dropped it into Sketchup. Took me a while to find the thick walnut then took even longer to sort out curves, dimensions, radii, etc. Joinery is M&T, except top rail table cross supports are cross...

    Workbench Chamfer Edge?

    I'm building a bench (http://www.ncwoodworker.net/forums/f29/workbench-build-roubo-21st-century-mix-update-21677/) and was thinking of putting a small 45 degree chamfer on the edge of the top as it is currently pretty sharp and probably prone to dings & such. Before I do that though ... I...

    Making 1/4" edge banding

    Today I made a bunch of 1/4" edge banding for a project. I have never done this before so I thought I would ask how others would do it. Here was my process: 1) Ripped ~8" rough lumber to ~4" so it would fit in my jointer 2) jointed one face and edge 3) planed to thickness + a hair 4) setup a...

    Natural Edge Bubinga Coffee Table (w/pics)

    My wife saw a natural edge coffee table (walnut I think) in a magazine and asked me to build one for her. She asked about the time I had just finished my desktop and I had a what I thought was just about a useless piece of wood at the time because of its shape and because it was very warped...

    straight edge

    Wondering what most of you use regularly as a straight edge. Thinking of buying either a Starrett or one of the Veritas ones. But wondering if that money is better spent on something less. Veritas has the aluminum ones that are certainly reasonable, but wondering about accuracy long term...
