  9. I building a 12 foot by 8 foot overhead router plane for in my shop but I'm waiting for some tee rail to finish it. So..... I have this 10 Fingers Router ( I have no idea why it's called that) that's never been used. It has no way to hold down anything to work on. The story continues ...
  10. I have this overhead router plane that I made for my saw mill but it's a pain putting it on the saw mill carriage... The story continues...
  11. Sanding down all this glue is a pain in the neck... So.... The story continues....
  12. One way I get around that is to use colored sawdust. I keep coffee can fun of different kinds of wood. Reed wood, Walnut, white pine and so on... Work great for me.
  13. The gaps I got even with the smallest blade. I needed to make very sharp turns and I had to make room for the blade to turn. This is why I was using varnish. I taped up the bottom to stop the runs and fill the cracks. I could have used epoxy. Any better ideas? One trick I've used over the years was to rub the sanding dust back into the cracks before I varnished. This worked best years ago when I sanded my grandfathers kitchen floor. It looked great until I vacuumed up all the dust. I had some floor cracks 1/2" wide. I dumped the sanding bag is dust back onto the floor and swept it all back in the cracks. Then I took sanding sealer to the whole floor. After It dried I sanded again. Then I varnished. Turned out great.
  14. I'm having a hard time with the varnish... I keep sanding it down and recoating but I'm not happy with the finish...

  16. You might know it as a burn bush...
  17. I had the same problem. Working with Staghorn wood. Everything I put on it for a finish would turn the orange wood brown.
  18. I knew the glue was going to give the belt sander a fit so I slapped the project in the milling machine.
  19. Yep... I did both... Can't wait until the glue dries so I can sand them down... When sanding's done I will wood burn the details in...
