tool collecting

It would be nice to finally have a tool collecting forum topic separate from hand tools. I’m pretty sure a spot for collecting information would be one of the first on the web. I haven’t found one anyhow. Good Luck Martin. Off to a good start.

Finish Question - What's The Difference?

A question about paint. A gallon of paint that says it’s 100% acrylic latex while a finish from General Finishes is acrylic. What’s difference? Other than thickness. Like the new site.

Hi to all!

I’m glad to find this new forum, saw it on Shiela’s LJ blog. I’m a scroller, been doing it about 8 years. I have a very small area to work in – a spare bedroom for the saw and my garage. But I think I do alright. I’m from along the Mississippi...

What's up

I just wanted to say hello. Idont know how many LJs are over here. Partly because I’ve become very accustomed to all of your icon pictures lol, but I wanted to say hello. I think it’s great to have multiple sites talking about wood working. More...

Elm slabs

I recently acquired two elm slabs. I’ll get a photo of them up here soon. I was wondering if anyone else has used elm for table tops and if so, how did it go and how did you finish it? I’ve never used elm…should do a blog, I guess.

Floating Band Saw Cutting Guide / Feather Board

Once in a while, I find I need support material near the blade and a fence or re-saw guide just doesn’t feel right. In the course of one of my [fortunately not well known] notorious goof off sessions (does that qualify as a paradox?), I made...

Powermatic Band Saw Light Modification

Stock, the 14" Powermatic band saw light must bend from behind the machine to the front. Doing so really stresses the goose-neck supporting the light. Even when adjusted, it never seems positioned quite right for a good view of the cut. Too, the...

Powermatic Band Saw Extension Table

I’ve made several 30” circles using my circle cutting jig. Each time, it’s been a struggle holding the right side of the jig, with the material on it, flush with the table. I thought about making a cart, but that seemed like a lot of material,...

Band Saw Angle Cutting Jig

After seeing what others had done using three different colors of wood to make 3-D patterns out of wood, I thought I’d try my hand at it. To aid in the process, I made this jig for my band saw. Of course, one could vary it a bit for the table...

Unifence mounted pushblock

Has anyone made one before? I’m thinking it might be a good idea to help keep my hands even further from the blade, especially when making thin cuts where having the guard installed isn’t possible.
