    Hey Leigh, all good man. Life got busier once I moved to Plano in 2010. Kids got older, started a business on the side and WW'ing had to take a back seat. Regrettably I am getting out of the hobby...

    So I got a bunch of carving tools and supplies a few years ago, hoping to revive my Woodworking addiction, but I have barely carved a flower with these and haven't touched most of them. I think I am...

    Thanks Stew, and others. I like the idea of shiny metal. I think many times people just getting into the hobby do not have the skill to restore tools so they shy away from anything looking older, the...

    Thanks Steve, Turns out my son is interning with a creeker, Jim Hinze, who just happens to be a pen maker. I'm reaching out to him.
  11. DFW (Dallas/FortWorth) pen turners (need a contact to buy some gifts)

    I am sure there are creekers in DFW who make and sell pens. Need some for gifts, would be great if laser engraving can also be done. So far I have found McKinney pens, but he seems a little pricey....
  12. top coat both sides or one in a cabinet made with plywood

    So if using ply do we top coat both sides (show and hidden) of everything or just the show die is enough. I figured there is so much glue already inside plywood that the force introduced by poly may...

    I have been told I have slightly longer arms for my height, I am 5'8" and from the tip of my fingers to the arm pit it is 29". I have a Diston #8 panel saw and I find the length to be just about...

    I have made wooden planes both with and without a tote. I find the traditional grip on a wooden plane to be uncomfortable, the tote helps in creating a balanced and comfortable grip when working on a...

    It seems I am in the minority, but I don't think a bench top needs a finish. I certainly don't want my bench top to be slick, just flat and "grippy" like Mike said.

    Nothing is installed, I have a sheet of plywood waiting to be cut and joined. I learned a long time ago to finish everything before glue up. So all stain and top coat work will be done pre-assembly...

    Scott, what do you suggest as a source for lacquer. I choose Deft because I do not have an HVLP sprayer so any spray option I use has to come in a can, Deft is just more easily available through the...

    the finish is lacquer, that I am sure of because it comes off with lacquer thinner.
  22. suggestions for matching existing cabinets

    What Zach said, I have a mix of both but the wooden planes are by far my favorites. Flattening the sole of a wooden jointer is so much easier than a cast iron plane, that in itself justifies getting...
