    I do see that, esp thinking about how long this project has gone on. I started with beech knowing I was going to make mistakes and probably need some tools along the way. And I got the beech fairly...

    I am making all the mistakes on this one. I am sure I will make others on the future, but these are my first M/T joints this small, I have never haunched tenons before, blah blah. I have been...

    At the time I only had a number 4 Bailey that still needed some work. I used lots of glue, lots of clamping force, caught lots of squeeze out with a drop cloth, but I glued up the 2x4 without doing...

    My bench has MMXVIII carved in the front stretcher so coming up on 4 years old. Glad I labeled it I would have guessed three years old. Any road, as the original film finish came off the top with...
  5. Do you have a favorite hardwood for joinery?

    I am making my first table with haunched tenons at each end of all four aprons, and I am getting clobbered by stacked errors.

    If I someday have a shop with much better climate control I will reconsider fastening a top to an undercarriage with lag bolts. Local I often see 8-10% RH in the winter and 70-80% RH summer. The...

    Actually, have one in my phone of the same all thread clamping a small panel glue up from about a year ago. Looks like the glue bottle hasn't been opened yet.

  9. A different option for gluing up a slab

    I went back and looked over my workbench build thread here. I already had the slab glued up when I opened that thread, and I don't remember seeing anyone else use this method since.

    I glued up...

    I have put off posting in this thread because my favorite one is so humble. But I love it, and I use it a lot. It is the table/ countertop at my outdoor kitchen. Nominal 24x72 inch unfinished top...

    I have actually done exactly that. I have some white oak (no sentimental value) to replace my office desk cut to length for the new desk I want to build, but my cut a little long almost to length...

    This is one of those times where I think of the old saw about "one inch per years of thickness" and some moderns saying "Well, that is one inch per side so 8/4 should be dry in one year." Old school...

    Also in the jakopnik article they say there is a stop, a half way locking position on the tail gate, so the 4x8 sheets ride on top of the fenders and on top of the tailgate latched at half mast. ...

    I am too old to the first on my block with anything new anymore. This is a handy sized truck for me, in snow country I would go with the AWD version, but on paper this truck might meet most of my...

    My guidance is start making stuff, a birdhouse, whatever. As you start making stuff, where the tools should be in the space you have will come to you.

    I think I am happy with the canvas roll-up for plow plane irons from LV, though mine is pretty new. Not sure if it would fit irons from other makers, but probably at least some overlap.

    I am looking forward to hearing some good answers. About to bring in a spare iron for #5 so I can have a straight with rounded corners and a bit of vamber on the other one. Mine I will probably...
