  1. Thanks Keith. Using the earlier info that you posted I went after the old picture frame yesterday. I was quite (happily) surprised at how well it cleaned up. A few minor dings and scratches really kinda sorta disappeared. I plan to do a second coat of wax today and then mount the mirror and call it done. Will post up a pic after that.

    Was putting up some trim yesterday, so resorted to my old reliable... Still interested in seeing if there is an app for this. I remember being amazed at what the Wixey did for me...

    Coffee and Honey

    A teaspoon of honey and a healthy splash of milk in mine if I am home. Light roast, dark or medium - it doesn't matter. The wife picks up whatever is on sale the day she goes.
  6. Jess, glad you and the misses are ok. I had a very similar experience once except it was the tractor trailer that ran the light. By the way, here is your sign...

    I don't know Bill, I will try that though. All I know is that I could not figure out a way with the Wixey.

    Wow! I found this on my phone - so cool. Just for sport I set it on one of the stair sub treads. 0* left to right, -1* front to back. Now, anyone know of a similar app that would measure the angle on the miter saw, fence to blade? I have tried all sorts of things with my Wixey, without finding the means to do it.

    Wooden Tip Out Stop?

    Pat, I have done this a couple different ways. On smaller drawers I have simply screwed a piece of 1X to the underside of the top. On stacked drawers I have sized the top drawer guide to act as the anti-tip for the lower drawer(s). Clear as mud?

    Stairway Remodel

    Hello Kenny, the balusters are 1 1/4" square. The plough width is 1 1/4 x 1/4" deep. These parts came from Home Depot, made by SureWood-LNL For others that may be looking at a stair remodel, here is a link to an installation guide by SureWood. I found it to be very helpful: http://surewoodlnl.com/pdfs/OTP How-To POD.pdf
  15. Thanks again Keith, I have printed that article out and will carry it to the shop next time I work on that frame.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
