    How do you get rid of the bow? I'm using 3/4" stock. Getting rid of that bow would reduce the thickness to at least 1/2" rendering it unusable. It seems like I cannot get a straight piece of 5/4...

    Another finishing question...

    I have wood I stained.

    I then (using a brush) applied lacquer. How do you prevent the finish from wanting to move it's way to the underside of the piece? You cant flip the piece over even if on...

  11. When to sharpen joint and/planer blades

    When do you guys typically sharpen your jointer and planer blades? I'm sure there must be a rule of thumb as to how many linear feet you pass before doing so.

    I have a 9" ryobi as a second bandsaw and it's a piece of junk to say the least.

    Let me guess... changing blades is starting to suck?
  13. What to do with Spanish cedar scraps?

    If this stuff didnt cost $7.99/bdft I wouldn't care so much. Perhaps I still shouldn't. I only have 2 thoughts that don't involve the fire pit.

    Piece wobbles in donut chuck

    I just made a donut chuck. The chuck itself turns perfectly but once I attach something to it the work piece wobbles. I know it's because the piece isn't centered exactly. I've tried several times...

  17. First attempt at large glue up and I'm scared to death of it.

    This isn't glued... yet. I'm going to do it a little at a time. I'm afraid of using too much or not enough glue. I'm afraid to run out of working time. It took a little bit just to get it to this...
