    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

    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...

    BLO Dry Time

    Actually Jim, on maple at least, it does make a difference. I did some side by side trials on a maple project I did several years ago. Upon initial application,
