    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 can generally apply a rule of thirds when I take up a new thing. For joinery, sharpening saws turns out to be easy for...

    Squaring Up Really Long Boards... Tips?

    Thread Starter: Erich Weidner

    I have a few dozen long boards I need to glue up into large panels. (11' to 16' for each section). They will be about 32" wide. I'm gluing up from 1 x 6 S4S stock. (So nominally 3/4" x 5-1/2"). They of course all have some bow, cup, or twist. I don't care at all about the look of one flat face...

    Bridge City Tools

    Thread Starter: Rob Luter

    Shoulder injury

    Thread Starter: Mark Gibney

    I'm looking for feedback from any of you who have or had shoulder issues. For a year I've had a bad left shoulder. Grew worse over the summer. Would wake me up a lot at night. Got to the point it was difficult to put on a shirt or jacket. And certain movements would cause a lot of pain for 30...

    Sharpening Forum?

    Thread Starter: Joe Beaulieu

    Hi All, i am really surprised there is not a separate section of this forum for sharpening. I have as many sharpening questions as I do woodworking questions. I am sure I am not the first to raise this idea. Just a thought. Thanks Joe

    Storing Waterlox Finish

    I like using Waterlox but I've had problems storing the product because any air trapped in the container will cause the product to cure.

    Track Saw Accessories and Jigs

    Those are all good ideas Paul. I'm doing a forehead slap (DOH!) over your home made clamps. I didn't have a good idea for how to make them and bought
