    Nice work! My dream has been to build the Frank Lloyd Wright butterfly chandeliers in the Dana Thomas House in Springfield, IL. At 70, I probably won't see that through. I designed and built some...

    For the first time in 50 years of woodworking, I bought a family owned machine. My Grandfather's oldest brother bought into a lumber yard in Emden, IL in 1903. It passed to his son, and then the sons...

    It's a good price if you can use a lot of 13" long boards. As wood gets around a foot long here, they get really close to the scrap bin.

    3-5 seconds would be way too quick. I'd go at least 15-20.

    The cons of open shelving; Dust is a major issue. It collects on everything on an open shelf. If there is no diagonal bracing, it won't come close to withstanding an earthquake. It probably won't...

    You are the first person I've heard of doing that. Have you damaged a chuck that way in the past?

    Since I grind all my bevels, going to the stones is really just a few strokes to improve the cutting surface. For a touch up, I only make about 3 strokes and bevel is restored. So wear on a water...

    Did you ever call your utility company? They could certify the lines up to your house and probably verify the connection at the house and might just include viability of the major ground rod and...

    55 volts is a lot. Sending that to a ground rod should trip the breaker shouldn't it? Is that 55 volts AC or DC?

    It sure doesn't take much time to release the grip of the chuck with the wrench, like maybe 3 seconds? I also try to hit a certain diameter so the next bowl is within 1/8" from the last bowl for that...

    I have to disagree. Been grinding to the edge for about 40 years. What you don't do is ignore dressing a grinding wheel to expose fresh abrasive, and you don't put more than the weight of the steel...

    Straight grain hickory with brass bushings for the bolts would be the way I would go, BUT as others say, you are putting yourself at risk.

    As far as I am concerned, a miter box has no place in making furniture. Not since I had a Hitachi 8 1/2" blade with a Forrest blade on it. That was in the 90s. Most of the saws today are more for...

    An entire video on how to rest a plane? That's just ridiculous. That's a plain issue of just mailing in a video to keep subscribers on YouTube watching.
