    Warping Problem - Help

    Been working on my first chess board. Made from 5/8" Maple and Mahogany. Glued to a 1/2" MDF Backer. Turned out great. Made the frame for it out of bass wood. About 5 days between making the frame and ready to glue up the frame to the board. In the mean time, the chess board has begun to warp. ! ! ! ! All grains are lined up (didn't think about crossing the grains of the pieces for the board. Warping is almost 3/8" from end to end. Afraid to glue up the frame to the board as it might also warp the frame. Does anyone know how I can get the warp out of the project ? ? ? ? ? This one has me stumped. The only thing I can think of at this point is to sand off the MDF and find 1/2" plywood and try glueing it up cross grained. Even thought about a steam iron. Help

    Fulfilling a promise

    TPW forum contributors are a great bunch of folks with a wealth of freely shared knowledge, from which I've greatly benefited. However, as most of us do, I participate in a few other forums, too. Recently, I encountered a perplexing problem that I posed to one of those forums. And, I promised to "sing the praises far and wide" of whomever could help me solve my dilemma. I should have known that the guy who gave me the info I needed would be one of our own. So Stick, your invaluable assistance is greatly appreciated. A big THANK YOU!. This is a promise I'm very happy to keep.

    Help question.

    I bought eight blocks of wood 6 x 6 x 3. I got two each of four different types. All eight are totally covered in a type of wax. I took a piece of walnut and while turning a bowl I could tell it was very wet. Will they all dry over time with the wax on or do I need to remove it?
  4. Having worked for a machine shop that made cutter heads for Owens Corning Fiberglas for a short time, I learned a couple of lessons after fighting the skiddeness. I said, 'What the heck: They were free so try to learn something new! I tried to take the same number of strokes on each one, use the same amount of pressure throughout, and file at the same angle. On a handsaw, you should file the top of the teeth first; only if they are not the same height. Also, it is important to set the teeth with a hand tool. I have two of them, and found that there are a lot of them available on ebay; I bought the second one at a yard sale, and the other one was inherited. I picked up an almost new Disston a while back in a thrift store for $5.00. It is dull, so someone abused it. This is going to have to be put on the back burner for now since I have had three motors to stop on me, and I worked on them for a short time for past week when possible since I take care of my wife who is disabled. Now, to the rust: I prefer electrolysis because it takes away the rust better than anything I have tried. To learn how to do this, you can find information on YouTube. Hope this helps someone.
  5. We have been most fortunate to have a surge in membership. As of right now, we have had 27 new members since last Friday and I believe most (if not all) have come over from Wood. There's always a learning curve to a new site so if you you can't figure something out there are folks here to help. Get in touch with any of the moderators like Charles Nichols, Gene Howe, Lew Kaufman, or Fred Wilson (did I forget anyone?), the two site administrators John Moody of myself or the head honcho himself, (the boss, the man, the legend) John Morris. We'll try to steer you right. That's why they pay us the six figure salaries ($000,000)

    Help With Stirring Paddle

    I was contacted by a friend of mine to make her several stirring paddles for apple butter making. Below is a picture of a broken paddle she had. I also have a picture of the end of the paddle. The actual making of the paddle will be no big deal. My problem is choice of wood. The wood is very light in weight. The wood will be emersed in a very hot citrus mixture. The wood can not transfer any of its characteristics to the liquid. What do y'all think about what wood I should use for this project? Basswood, Poplar, others???? Thanks for your help Fred - aka Pops Shop

    Band saw lube

    I was watching a woodworking show on PBS and the guy was cutting Large dry pieces of a stump on his large bandsaw. He said to always use spray lube on the blade and to turn the wheel by hand until you see that all the blade is coated. Then wait 3 minutes before using. He did not ID the make of the lube. He also said it does a terrific job. I have heard of using Pam cooking spray, but this was designed for saw blades. Any ideas on the manufacturer?

    Change Avatar Location Help

    OK - so I found this neat new avatar I want to use. Went into my profile but could not find the proper place to change it. Admins, I need a little help here, puleeze. Thanks
  10. Being a disabled veteran myself and a business owner, I found that doing something I love to do is helping me the most than all the meds I am on. So what I am willing to do for ALL disabled veterans and their families is give them the opportunity that I never got with a local or national business. Pine Is Fine Custom Cabinets and Furniture, is willing to help out those families that need the basic furniture (i.e. end table, coffee table, bookcase, etc...). These pieces will be custom made for those Soldiers that have ailments that standard furniture can not be used. We will not charge the family, it will be given to the family as a token of our thanks to you for serving the country. For further details, please contact me at pineisfinecabinets@gmail.com

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.
