    I always sticker wood when I'm done for the day. Sometimes the wood behaves and other times it does move a bit. I'm curious if actually clamping it down does anything to help this. Wouldn't the...

    I agree bench thickness doesn't need to be any thicker than 4". The base of my bench uses 4" x 5" maple legs with 2 1/2" thick maple stretchers. IMO the solid base is more important than having a...

    For whatever reason finding Rep's for either company is not easy here in Downeast Maine. In terms of service I have no way to determine who will be better which I agree is a huge selling point. I am...
  8. Which to choose, Minimax FS-30C Xylent Cutterhead or Hammer A3-31 Spiral Cutterhead

    I'm sure this type of question has been beat up around here but figured I'd ask opinions for myself.

    I am about to pull the trigger on a Minimax FS-30CX from Elite Metal Tools. After doing a...

    Came out great! I would just say they are just a fancy way of holding the glue-up together for years to come. Exposed joinery!

    If you have doug fir on hand I wouldn't hesitate making a bench from it. Like others have said it is very splintery and you will rip a chunk or two off the edge when a splinter catches on you. My...

    I think you'd be very disappointed with maple outside in the elements especially after dealing with white oak. It depends on what mahogany they are calling mahogany but out of those options it would...

    I guess it would be the LN 102 Bronze and the LN #7 if I had to absolutely choose. The LV Shooting plane is a close 3rd but I would true up most ends with my block plane if I had to. Overall I...

    That's literally the first time I've ever heard that. This is probably my most used plane of all time. I have so many LN and LV planes too but this plane sits on my bench and touches every piece of...

    Jim nailed it.

    I have worked with a lot of red (western red) cedar which appears to be what you have in your pictures. I can honestly say that I am not a fan of working with this wood. I...
