    Good enough vs overkill

    Thread Starter: Mark Hennebury

    Started On New Kitchen Table

    Thread Starter: ken hatch

    The new kitchen table will be a modular trestle with with two end pieces/legs and a wedged stretcher between them. I haven't decided on a slab yet but I expect it will be "blind pegged" like my workbenches so the table can be expanded by changing the stretcher and the slab. Here is the first...

    Seeking advice on a new purchase

    Thread Starter: Kevin Hirata

    For the last year or so I've been purchasing rough lumber from a yard in my area. The lumber is much cheaper, but it does require that I spend a fair amount of time getting the material surfaced and square. For this I use an 8" benchtop jointer, and a benchtop planner. Final dimensioning is done...

    I cut my first dovetails in March at the Homestead Heritage school in Waco, Texas, which uses the Paul Sellers method. No wonder, because he actually

    Options for finishing Bubinga

    I did some work on a small skiff that had bubinga quarter knees at the stern and a small bubinga foredeck. It had been finished with west system epoxy.

    Put the Doug Fir aside. Go get some cheap poplar at the BORG. DF is difficult to work because the spring growth is so much harder- stiffer- stringyer

    Home made box fan air filter

    I took a cheap box fan and put a furnace filter on the input. When freshly cleaned, it blows fresh air on me as a wood turn and sand. When it plugs up,
