    New Moravian Bench build Part 2

    Thread Starter: ken hatch

    The old thread was getting a little long in tooth. Friday night I screwed up one of the long stretcher tenons. After several rounds of "what if" and "yes but" I made the correct decision and went to the woodstore Saturday and picked up a nice hunk of 12/4 Poplar and started over. Here are...

    Flattening the sole of a cast steel hand plane?

    Thread Starter: Lasse Hilbrandt

    On YT there are a lot of videos that show how to flatten the sole on hand planes. It seems fairly easy, but I wonder if there are anything that can go wrong if the tecnique is not right? Can one accidently be "rounding" the sole instead because of more gringding at the ends than in the middle of...

    Amazon mini-rant

    Thread Starter: Paul F Franklin

    I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon, I admit. I like the selection and the quick delivery. The reviews are often helpful as long as you read between the lines a bit. What I don't get are the "we found an item we think you might like" emails. Say I've bought a left handed hammer, or a muffler...

    Lawn Weeds

    Thread Starter: Prashun Patel

    Does this topic depress you as much as me? Spray, compost, crouch-and-pick. The more time I spend on it, the more they thrive. I have this ONE light green, tall grass that I just can't get rid of. I tried picking them out manually, repeatedly, but they grow back. Does anyone know what this...

    I swear one of the Wadkin or Robinson designs is like that too. In these large combos, that seems to be the easiest/simplest design. All combos fill me

    That's interesting on the tables down, must have perfected the DC. For the quality that these things are, that's a reasonable cost, maybe a touch more

    I know that jointer and its owner. I was tempted, but it did need quite a bit of work to get it to where I would want it to be.
