    We're better than this although we continue to prove otherwise.
  1. Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners

    I switched to using lacquer on my B stoppers. about 10 coats then sand and steel wool them finishing with a coat or two of paste wax.
  2. Wood . You Day

    they are sly on the while you're at it trap I fell for it once and now I've been married for 27 years
  3. Colorply

    I use it allot. never had an issue yet with it for ice cream scoops, pizza cutters, bottle openers so far
  4. Elm

    I have used it a few time (tool tote made in high school. still used around the shop) lazy-susans, cribbage boards and such. to me it works fine and I'd use it again if I had some.
  5. Help Wanted / Chicagoland

    I'm 2.5 hours north of Chi-town in Plymouth. Unfortunately the full time job has me working 6 days a week and my side business occupies the other 8 days a week
  6. Another Use For Your Cell Phone

    might just have to down load this and put my tree id book away
  7. Wood clamps

    we have over 100 HF bar clamps. there is some flex in the longer ones but they've served us well over the years
  8. turning, turning, turning and turning, oh might do a little more turning. Pens, bottle stoppers, pepper mills, handles for pizza cutters ice cream scoops etc and a few rolling pins. In between I'll glue up some panels for a few cutting boards
  9. Oh great. I saw this and dropped everything to rush to work. Now here I stand doing every ones work thinking they are all too hungover to get up this morning
  10. Question

    there is a search box at the top right of the page that will get you in the neighborhood of what you are looking for.
  11. had a giant blank warp

    I've heard of immersing them in DNA for a few days. would require a rubbermade tote and a few gallons.
  12. just back from a small art show. I had two choices hit the shop to get ready for next weeks show or sit in my chair and enjoy a cocktail.
  13. Lathe Versatility

    I have a 12" Atlas craftsman that used to be my dads, so I should be good to go
  14. Lathe Versatility

    might have to explore this further. do you think it would work with mechanical pencils?
  15. RV cabinets??

    using basswood for areas that need solid lumber is very common in the rv industry.
