    Time for some levity

    Thread Starter: Dave Anderson NH

    With all of the negativity and political stuff going on with the Covid-19 virus it is time to look at the humorous side of things. Feel free to add more, but keep it clean or it will be deleted.

    Shop Build...should be a fun journey...

    Thread Starter: Jim Becker

    I debated about starting this thread now or later, but decided on now because, well...I might forget something. :o As a little background, at our previous property, I was blessed with a reasonably sized, fully conditioned space for my shop in what was originally a three-and-a-half vehicle garage...

    Volkswagon Mechanics Talk To Me

    Thread Starter: Keith Outten

    I recently acquired this 1967 VW dune buggy knowing that it would be a bit of a project before I could get it on the road. It runs good just needs a tune up but I will need to replace some parts here and there to get it where it needs to be. Most of the parts are on order, new brake shoes, stuff...

    new bandsaw wont' cut straight

    Thread Starter: Forrest Gon

    My first bandsaw, a new rikon 10-3061, set it up according to the manual and various youtube tutorials such as Alex Snodgrass's method (align the blade, tension the blade, thrust bearings and side guides) Now the issue is: the saw just won't cut straight, it will pull the wood off the fence...

    I think my zero turn mower is cursed!

    Thread Starter: Brian Elfert

    I bought a used 2019 Grasshopper diesel zero turn mower with 189 hours on it last summer. I had all kinds of problems with it initially including a starter that didn't always turn over. I realized after I bought it that the mower had been buried pretty deep in mud or something as the dashboard...

    Teach us about rasps and floats

    Thread Starter: Keegan Shields

    There is a ton of info on the web about the more common woodworking hand tools (chisels, planes, saws) but what about rasps and floats? What’s the difference in application? How do these tools fit into the tool continuum from axe to sandpaper? What brands and models would you recommend to...

    Do you have woodworking knowledge you're just dying to share?
    Want to be an author at Sawmill Creek?

    Now you have a new area to publish articles!

    If you want to publish an article, you can join our authors group, which gives you access to a forum which is open only to would-be authors at SawmillCreek. This is a staging area for new articles, where you can post a new article, and we'll review for publication. Once you're ready to publish it, we'll promote it on the front page of SawmillCreek!


    The process is simple:

    1. Join the Authors group by visiting this page.
    2. Once you have access, visit the Authors forum.
    3. Start your article by creating a new thread in that forum.


    TIPS

    If your article is too long for a single post, don't fret ! Spread your article over multiple posts, and we'll merge them together into a single post when the article is ready to be published.

    Try posting pictures inline for visual interest.

    Choose a catchy, yet descriptive title!

    Writer's Block?

    We're looking for tool reviews, woodworking tips, woodturning techniques, jigs and fixtures, finished projects step-by-step, finishing techniques, social woodworking experiences, and even good compilations of our existing thread topics.

    Good luck and Happy writing!

    Oppsss, how do I fix this?

    Unfortunately, epoxy is a chemical bond and to make things more difficult, the blue background isn't a solid color. I would consider approaching a local

    Was this a good price?

    Agree with Richard. If you have to normally buy lengths and saw them down for whatever you're doing to that length, then you hit a good deal for you and

    I’ve only done ship lap once (actually spline & groove) and probably didn’t do it right. I screwed each piece into a rabbit. We don’t
