    I'm finally building my boat.

    Thread Starter: Malcolm Schweizer

    I lofted the station moulds for her about six years ago, but we moved to a place with less room to build a boat, so she went on hold. I have borrowed a place to build and am going to make all the bits and pieces in my shop, then assemble them in the borrowed space. This is going to be a slow...

    Craftsman at Lowe's and Ace

    Thread Starter: Ole Anderson

    My first jointer. New or used?

    Thread Starter: Jason Buresh

    Hello. I am looking to purchase my first jointer, but could use some advice. I have used a jointer in high school and at my uncle's woodshop, but have never owned one. I went to school to fix industrial machinery, so working on a used machine doesn't intimidate me, as I used to work on machines...

    I need to put a piano finish on parts for a bed. By piano finish, I mean a gloss black which is so smooth that you can't tell there's wood underneath

    All those buttons...

    We just bought a new over-the-range microwave oven.
