    I don't think so. Based on your original post, your bottom is fitted into a groove but your top is a slab glued to the edge of the mitered perimeter frame. Did I misunderstand? In my approach, top...

    That's how I do it (see below). I saw the top from the box after glue up. I've never had one warp (knock on wood).

    I just make new ones from Oak. I traced my stock insert on some scrap that had been planed to the right thickness and cut the replacement to shape. I added a thumb hole and a small pin or a brass...

    That's actually a good idea. I used to have a Bishops #10 Patent Saw with the same feature. Rip and Crosscut in one tool.

    You're feeling my pain Prashun. I will say that using blue tape has made a huge difference in marking. Once you pull it off though, same old same old.

    It's not the planing that makes me weary. It's the fact that no matter how sharp, a marking knife doesn't make much of a mark, and it's a pain in the biscuits to chop and pare dovetails. I like the...

    I've been cutting my own hair for 15 years. I just use cordless clippers. I wear the ever stylish "Basic Training" cut. It's very aerodynamic and nearly maintenance free.

    There were a bazillion Stanley #5 made and you should be able to find one for cheap. I've had a number of them and I wish I still had one. A Jack Plane need not be fancy. It's a purpose built plane...

    I love the smell of White Oak. I use scraps in my smoker for BBQ Brisket. I've used toasted White Oak chips to flavor home brewed beer too. The Red Oaks I've cut down on my property usually smell...

    Just grousing. QSWO is one of my all time favorites. It's a bear to work with but I love the look. I've done a couple projects recently with finer grained and relatively softer woods (cherry, maple)...

    In your original post I missed that you were using a 60 1/2 R. The fairly open mouth on those may be a contributor to your difficulties, but not to the chipping. The 101 is bedded at 20* and is a...

    Hone a 25* bevel with maybe a tiny secondary bevel. Wet the end grain with mineral spirits or alcohol. Take slicing cuts with the plane. Youíll be fine.

    Good advice. I started with sandpaper and a $10.00 honing guide. As it turned out, I stuck with a low cost alternative, namely PSA abrasive film on glass blocks that are glued to MDF. If I need to...

    That's my guess, as he mentions Mahogany. Makore looks much like Mahogany, especially after a while as it darkens up. Here's a frame I made from Makore some time back. It's considerably darker now.
