    There's a clip on the radio where Carlos Santana says "I am a master storyteller...".

    I have an old-school 40x pocket microscope that I use to look at edges occasionally- the size of a stubby ball point pen.

    I make them from mahogany and ipe for outdoor projects like gates. The standard ones will rot in short order.

    I would just have the drawers ride on hardwood cleats and some wax. The drawers are deep enough to pull out most of the way. I have various shop drawers like that with over 100 lb contents, in...

    A small bit of woodworking history

    A client has become old and I've been helping him clear out his shop, and scrounging a bunch of stuff, including some tabletop leaves in poor condition of unknown, but heavy wood.

    I mentioned them...

    That's wild! I've heard of burying wood to age and improve the color, but you wouldn't expect it to change while stickered.

    Nice breadbox.

    A client is passing one on to me that belonged to his father, also a Craftsman jointer- a better model than the common one.
    These were stored since maybe the '90s. Tricked out with extension...

    I don't care for alder- find it less stable & more sort of fuzzy. Maybe this is a West coast thing. Prefer poplar or soft maple.
