    I made a squid for a friend's son who loves the ocean. The tentacles were fun: carve a rod, taper it, then cut it in to sections, drill out and search by running during through them. Could be used to...

    clear finish for basswood

    My wife wanted a few very light tables for an art show she's doing and wanted them in basswood. I know it's not the greatest for a table due to the softness, but I think they will survive long enough...

    I find the wide range of opinions and options really interesting! Great to see so many different approaches to any given situation.

    For now, I've glued and rescrewed. Worst case, I'll replace the...

    The client is my wife. She'll be ok with it. It's for a modern bed (headboard attaches separately) where all four legs are the same. I'll hide this one back by my head where no one will notice it.

    I drilled a pilot hole, but I think it was 1/16 or so too small. Lesson learned!

    Tell me what I already know

    Making a bed post and the top cracked while screwing in the bed rail fastener plates.

    Anyone disagree that I've got to make a new leg?

    The wood is sapele if anyone thinks that matters.

    I almost always keep my big router in the table and find that a small handheld router takes care of 90% of what I need a portable router for. It's a great combination.

    Slats for bed

    I'm making a bed similar in style to the modern bed frame shown by Rockler (https://www.rockler.com/build/bedframe), but king size. The frame is sapele.

    With this design, I don't want to need a...

    How do I know if my stone is flat?

    I use mostly diamond, which (I assume) doesn't need flattening, but my final level for sharpening prior to stropping is a glass sharpening plate...which does need flattening?

    If so, how do I know...

    Coming from a dewalt contractor saw to the same setup, I had the exact same impression - so smooth and so quiet. I would have loved a slider if I'd had room, but as it is I'm very satisfied.

    Maybe I have too large of a gap at the front where it slides? It's straight when it's locked in, but when I reposition it, it always shifts a bit.

    Love that idea, Charles!

    Mind you, I'm trying to stop sawdust build up at the source rather than letting it pile up enough to jam the miter slot up.
