    Thread Starter: Jerry Olexa

    I have subscribed to PW for many years and this has been a favorite of mine...They have, in past, emphasized I thought the traditional, hand tool approach to woodworking and making fine furniture...I loved many of the feature articles by people such as Chris Schwartz, Glen Huey, etc. Over the...

    Raccoon for lunch

    Thread Starter: John K Jordan

If you’ve read any of my other numerous questions (thx all for invaluable help), I’ve been at this since last April. Here is an effort to slowly catch up.

    About sharpening handsaws

    Thread Starter: Scott Winners

    There is some agitation in another area here to opening a sub forum specific to sharpening. I am far too new to have a valued opinion on the subject, though I am in favor.

    I did my first glue up on a coffee table/blanket chest I'm making. I decided to put 45 chamfers between the pieces. I got most of the glue up while wet

    Drywall removal question

    Contacting Laguna is the best way forward. My guess it is either the off-on switch or the relay sticking and not the VFD.
