    You might try marketing to family members of woodworkers. They need a gift to buy for the person who is hard to buy for. This could result in a lot more things never used. Please do not target my...

    One or more saw cuts will help you get it right. If you want the experience you can certainly do this with a hand saw.

    My scrub plane might be up to the task of hollowing.

    Be sure to start by making a template to measure with. If you can post a pic of it here we can compare it to our experience. Give us the deepest depth you plan. I'll suggest 1/2" as a minimum.

    Ok the measuring went well. I actually need 1.4 ounces plus any squeeze out and allowance for the chamfers. Yes I put tiny chamfers on the mortises. The tennons had them already.

    Air Conditioner Maintenance

    We are in a cottonwood storm, it's been going on for 2 weeks. Had my wife vacuum the fuzz off the condenser fins. She enjoys tasks like that.

    A couple years ago I raised it onto a pad of brick...

    Looks like the cornstarch would require some cleanup and the wood would soak up some moisture. Mercury would work better if it wasn't toxic. I happen to have some but don't think I'll use it.

    The mortice is 1/2" wide and 40" long plus a 2" square at each end. All of it is 1/2" deep. The clearance is about 1/16" all around.

    Ed, good suggestion to measure carefully to get close.

    Looks great!

    BTW is that rocking chair a product or a tool?
  11. Mix the perfect amount of epoxy - maybe next time

    So I have a mortice that's going to take about 4 oz of epoxy, but I only get one shot at it and really don't want any squeeze out, and leave no voids. It would be great to have some sort of silly...

    End grain flooring was used extensively in factories but it has a weakness. If it gets very wet for a long time it expands and buckles up. You can park a big fork truck on a small patch and it will...

    If you go with single pane plan for double pane later. Glazing on the outside and a stop inside. A second pane could be set against the stop and a second stop added, if you plan it that way.

    I installed wood slats 1/4" x 2 1/2" to the bottom of the floor joists and cut ceiling tiles to fit above them.

    Have you included an egress window? It's probably not required as this may not be an 'occupied space' but with the number of hours you will be there it makes sense. Then you would need to keep...

    Hi Sal
    Installing a ceiling in my basement shop made a big difference in the 'feel' of the space. Of course it also improved the lighting.

    I was able to do it by giving up only 1/4" of head room,...

    What will you put on the discharge side of the fan?

    That unit is going to make quite a roaring noise. Is it mounted on a house wall or an outside wall?

    Finally found a use for it

    Had a hunk of oak 2 1/4 x 4 x 36 with knots, twist and bow. Just couldn't throw it out. Today I made it into garden stakes. That felt good.

    Changing the motor on my TS from 3600 rpm to 1800 rpm made a big difference in dust control. Bigger dust going slower. And the safety and noise are much improved. Not a good change in a shop with...

    Hi Mark
    From the nice paint job on those parts I'm guessing that you could show us pictures of a nice looking saw.

    I have the 733 and really like it. One spare set of knives and a sharpening jig (William Ng video) keeps it fresh. I lift gently on the ends of long boards and get no snipe.

    Steve you're being deliberately blind to the difference. Of course grabbing the wood right next to the blade is more hazardous than grabbing it on the opposite side of the saw.
