    I use a utility knife to peel it. The difficulty in peeling seems to be correlated to its sticking power.

    Another trick I see luthiers using is: tape each side with masking take - white...

    If you can bolt a 1ft section of 2x4 to a wall, you can clamp these onto that. I don't have pix. Mine is about 36" off the floor. I clamp my long clamps onto it with the handle pointing up and the...

    I was fortunate to get a sneak peek of these a week ago. John, your work is impeccable and inspiring as always. I can't wait to see what you next decide to "dabble" in. First turning, then chairs,...

    I am in the same boat. Am really trying hard not to use my table saw. I might sell it.

    I will retain much jointer/planer and bandsaw. These two tools are so versatile and take up so little...

    It's a copy (from plans, basically) of a PRS. I made a Telecaster before this and am currently making a couple more. It's highly addictive - perhaps more so than the vortex of turning.

    I've used a bunch of American Beech right from my yard over the past couple years. And that's with imperfect drying. It looks and works halfway between maple and cherry. It is plenty hard and I...

    Glad you found a solution. Another thing that I wouldn't want you to learn the hard way:
    cutting 'wheels' on the bandsaw is a bad thing. The blade can roll your tube. At the very least it can...

    The problem with the 2 stage systems or semi pro systems (I have the Fuji) is that you donít get precise control over the air and flow. You have to dial things in by feel.

    Even once the rip gets going it helps to keep the wood tilted away. I try to rip on my saw bench which makes you do it this way.


    However, I was taught that if you just kiss the teeth and keep...

    I suspect the temperature is the culprit. The material has to atomize properly and flow out properly. A lower temperature could be making the material slightly thicker. The nozzle may also not be...
