    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

    The folks at FWW are trumpeting the soon to be released Dual Angle Bench Planes from Bridge City Tools. Scary money. I am an extreme tool nerd. I love precision. These planes (and other BCT products) exude substance, quality, and luxury. Am I the only guy that considers them an elegant and...

    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

    Tool rust prevention

    I have a small can from sliced olives that I stuffed a coiled old towel into. I put several drops of light oil on the towel to begin with and refresh

    Justify Your Footprint

    Seems like a very workable solution, especially setting it up so you can easily use the bandsaw. It always surprises me how much I use my small bandsaw

    Storing Waterlox Finish

    Scott, can’t comment on the water idea. I’ve used Bloxygen with success, but it’s expensive, and as you said kind of a pain to have

    Drying Pressure Treated Lumber

    Start with KDAT lumber (kiln dried after treatment)? Real lumber yards will have it, the box stores don't.

    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.
