    If you used pine from the lumber store, I the most likely problem was it wasn't completely dry and the subsequent evaporation of moisture from the wood through the end grain changed the wood...

    Those that have advised you to assess what work you do and how you go about doing it are very wise.

    The only vise I have on my bench is an end vise which stretches across the width (or depth...

    There are so many blades available and I've only used about 3 different brands. I have found no difference between Carter's, Wood Slicer (Highland Hardware), and at least one other brand which I...

    My experience has showed me that it's virtually impossible to weather proof any wood that will sit outside unless you use a good exterior paint. I believe this would be especially true of pine. Any...

    I use a 1/2" gouge most of the time; a Crown Pro-PM gouge. It works for me but I think I've learned that everyone uses what they get used to. I also bought a 3/8" gouge (same type) but really don't...

    Benches are a very personal thing. The most difficult decisions for me were the height of the bench and the method of assembling the legs.

    I ended up with a 36" high bench even though I'm not...

    As suggested already, if you can find reclaimed boards of the right size, gluing them together to the right width should work. Reclaimed wood should be dried sufficiently and probably won't move that...

    My feeling on this tool is that it has invaluable uses in everyday home construction or remodeling but, beyond that, it doesn't have any great use in woodworking like furniture or cabinet making. So,...

    The first question is whether you are still interested in subscribing to FWW under their new structure. I find the Unlimited subscription useful. However, I live in the US and didn't have any...

    The purpose of flattening stones is to have a reliable plate/stone to flatten your other stones. As far as I know, the only flattening plate that doesn't require any maintenance is a diamond plate....

    I own a Porter Cable 24" Omnijig and an Incra table. Both do a great job with quite a bit of flexibility. Either works well for drawers, boxes, and other casework which can be accommodated. However,...

    Since you are using the boards in boxes . . .Are the edges of the boards going to be captured in something rigid? If so, it might not make a difference that the 1/4" boards are cupped. Since they are...

    I rotated cutters in my Jet helix head jointer just to even out wear. When I reinstalled them, there was at least one that seemed not to seat properly in its spot. I went back and checked all of them...

    I purchased the Nova Comet II a couple of years ago when I started turning. It's capacity would be 12" (although I think it does best no more than 10" bowls). It has been a great beginning lathe for...

    Iím confused about the crowned versus flat wheels/tires. I have a 14Ē Rikon which appears to have crowned wheels or tires (appears to be rubber tires from the factory). Yet all after market urethane...

    Part of the answer is whether you can get sufficient money from the sale to buy a high quality tool youíve wanted and will use a lot.

    I own a Rikon 14" and it does a good job resawing; generally 6" wide boards or less. If your main purpose is to resaw boards to 3/4" from 2" and these are mainly more than 6" wide boards, I would go...

    I have used Freud blades on 10" saws for many years and have never had this happen, even with thin kerf blades. Although Freud blades are more expensive than the Irwin blades above, they are, by no...

    Seems like the best choice for the work you plan to use it for. I have never regretted buying the Domino. It is a great tool and the 500 works well for smaller work like you indicated you are doing.

    Rockler and Woodcraft sell workbench casters that will raise the bench legs off the floor when you want to move the bench. When the bench is in place you can lower the legs to the floor. I installed...
