    I went with three coats of thinned satin poly wiped on on all surfaces. First coat was more like a sanding sealer - thinned 50/50 (thinned with mineral spirits). This is A reasonably durable...

    Thanks Warren, that makes sense.

    Gary, you're observation is correct. The author suggests stopping the dados 1/2" from the front and back and cutting the tenons with a 1/2" shoulders. He also...

    That's my thinking as well. I'm guessing that the Medium-long shelf is supposed to be 10" in length. With 1/4" long tenons on each end, that shelf would have a 9.5" exposed length between the side...

    If that cabinet doesn't put a smile on your face every time you walk in the shop then you are carrying way too many troubles. What a beautiful tool cabinet. Enjoy it. Very well done!!!

    The bench looks great. Congratulations on the build. How did you glue the beech counter top to the "sub-bench top"? I would have been tempted to counter bore some holes, and used lag screws in...

    Latest Toy (for me) from Lee Valley

    Technically not Neander, but it is an enabler - an Alaskan Sawmill. And I used a small axe to debark the log, and a draw knife to draw down a hump in the log so that counts for something.

    Got...

    I only own one Ashley Isles chisel - the 1/8" size. I really like the chisel, but it is used for light duty. I might tap it, but I do not think it is designed to be pounded on. I cut dovetail...

    My bench is 3 1/4" thick hard maple. I had to sand the Gramercy hold fasts and that did it for me. I use a leather-faced, shop-made, jointer's mallet to set the hold fasts. Not ideal, but it...

    Malcolm, you could get yourself into twice as much trouble with the cool LN's and their accompanying leather cases. Be strong. Those are not the saws you are looking for. :)
