    Like Jim said, for finer work go with a Japanese backsaw, i.e. a dozuki.

    Lots of information out there about Japanese saws - but I agree, often incredibly confusing as there is a lot of overlap...

    Michael,

    I had run across the Bob Rozaieski video for angled dovetails previously as well and though he seems successful with it, for my use it seemed needlessly complicated.

    Kayaks have a very specific history that is incredibly interesting (and successful). The traditional design and construction techniques are very intelligent, and in my opinion a better place to...

    Thanks Roger, my thoughts too.

    Just curious if anyone had ever heard of anything like it - it perplexed me for obvious reasons. I assume it was probably discovered years ago on accident before...
  5. Gasoline as a wood stain and preservative

    So this is a new one, and one I haven't been able to find any information on.

    I visited some family of mine in the deep countryside in Europe and they were in the middle of a project to install...

    Well Peter, might be looking into that after all! The seller of the mortiser agreed to sell it to me and then sent a message an hour later saying he had sold it to his friend instead. Oh well, these...

    Tom, that makes sense with the slower RPMs on the larger saws. I've only ever used smaller saws and they of course scream.

    And thanks for the heads up. Don't worry, I had already contacted the...

    Like Mark I initially bought a factory reconditioned from CPO but unfortunately it was a disaster (as was the reconditioned hammer drill and jigsaw from them, after that I stopped). I returned it and...

    The timber framing will just be for the roof - so mainly rafters. Bridle joints for the peak joint, mortise and tenons for the bracing. Still working out the plates and how the rafters will seat,...

    So many software companies are going towards a subscription model. I think it's terrible for the end user, and if you're not using the software everyday - very bad economics.

    Timber Frame Mortising Tool Options

    I've long since wanted to do some timber framing work and I've decided to start by framing the roof of a stone barn I'm restoring.

    The barn is in a remote location. There is power, but I...

    Derek,


    If people are using ad blockers it means they don't want to view ads.


    It's amazing how indoctrinated we've all become that we think there is some sort of moral obligation to endure...

    Mr. Outten,





    Sure, perhaps no revenue - but for a forum, the primary (perhaps only?) source of value. I am here, and I imagine most are here, due to the high caliber of expertise and...

    Hoang,

    Last year about this time I built a skin on frame kayak and I have to tell you it was an incredible experience. I've always loved boats and after doing a lot of research I went in this...

    Brad,

    Do you mind if I upload a public copy of your plans so they're accessible? You sent some to me in October so I can just put a link here so that anyone can just download in the future if...

    Thanks to all. I was able to make the repair late last week and let it sit over the weekend to fully cure. I had some fiberboard that I had used for cauls for an earlier project and just cut them...

    Thanks John, I had briefly considered breaking it apart completely as well - it's just a hard pill to swallow. I think I'm going to go for the repair without breaking it apart first. And since it's...
