    Well, I know Lowell knows a bunch and I want to pick his brain, I guess we'll have to wait on that one. I do have the Veritas saw file holder, good tool.

    The dilemma I see is going to be keeping metal bits out of your wood projects. If you don't have Chris Schwarz's book I highly recommend it. In the very back he has a chapter on bench accessories,...

    How long do you think Levittown, PA is going to remain standing? Westminster (c 1399 AD) is still going strong.

    I got all my joints pegged this afternoon and all the metal fasteners out. I bored to 1.5 inches since all the laps were 0.75, no point in going deeper. Got started priming tall exposed end grain...

    I changed out the short bearers today, from 14" 2x4 to 24 inch 2x6. And I made all the long pieces, and I got it all glued up. I am thinking tomorrow I will bore it and glue in pegs before I take...

    Outdoors work table pointers

    I have been named the BBQ pitmaster at my church. May 2019 I made food for 120 hungry people, 80 people showed up (the preacher said "plan for 50"), I had zero left overs.

    It was like locusts. I...

    Osvaldo,

    I really enjoy your questions. Once upon a time I was about six months ahead of you in this hobby. You must have more free time than me. I think next year you will be giving me advice....

    Sliding deadman pics?

    OK, what are you trying to do with the 6s6 boards? 0.002" to 0.005" over two feet of face grain is better than my local professional custom millwork offers.

    I agree a #3, #4 or $#4 1/2 would be a good compliment with block, # 5 and scrapers.

    I do like having a mix of O1 and A2 steel in my planes. I do think A2 lasts longer at high bevel angles, say...
