Anyone know how to make epoxy solid black in colour?

Anyone know how to make epoxy solid black in colour? I have some cracks to fill in an elm plank and I don’t think colour matching will ever work. I saw a guy make pitch black epoxy but he never said how he did it. That would work for me. Any...

Working with imperfect lumber - What are the steps you take to straighten it out?

My local lumber supplier had bought some Sapele out of a local warehouse recently, and is selling it off fairly cheaply for our area. The problem is the boards were probably air dried incorrectly, as there were a lot of unusable boards there. I...

Downed trees

I live on a little mountain top surrounded by hundreds of acres of woods. Like any forest, there are lots of trees down. How feasible would it be to take the chainsaw out, cut some 3-4 foot lengths, and use the chainsaw to rough cut them for use...

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...
