Etsy Or? Looking For Hand Made Website
John Morris posted a topic in General WoodworkingI know about Etsy, but I remember there was a website that started it all, selling hand made crafts online, it was the first one, and only one at the time, and everyone loved it and sold on it. I think you could buy ready made items and you could hire crafts persons to make your custom items, but the name escapes me, a little help please? Thanks

Kitchen Island Top Project Under Way - Updated
John Moody posted a topic in General WoodworkingI started a few days ago on the Kitchen Island top out of Maple. I went over to the Wood Stash and got enough maple to bring to the shop and start working on. The top has to be 41"x51"x2". I got all of the boards cuts a little over size and ready for the jointer Ran one side across the jointer and ready to run through the planer. After it was run through the planer I stacked it all and put some clamps on it to just check my size and be sure I was going to be okay to start the glue up. That is going to be one large Island top. So last night I was looking at either gluing it up in three of four glue ups and them putting those together. So those are the three panels and I am thinking I am going to do it in four just to give me more working time and make it easier to pull them tight together. I should get them glued tonight or first thing in the morning. Well it was Thursday Morning before I got the panels glued. I decided to glue them into four sections and I am so glad I did. Once the clamps were on there it was almost too heavy for me to lift off the assembly table. Also to glue up all for sections has taken almost a gallon of Titebond III glue. 1st Panel 2nd Panel 3rd and 4th Panels It will most likely be Saturday morning before I start gluing the panels together. I think I will glue two panels together and then when they are dry, glue the two sections together.
