    I for one appreciate the bandsaw solution. My ts is a sawstop, and I am making a chair from green wood. While I can bypass the detector, I prefer to cut green wood at the bandsaw.

    I've made this mistake before.

    I no longer put things in the sun. It's very difficult to control the heat. Heating after initial drying has begun is a dangerous thing: Trapped solvent can't...

    Thanks for this, Ken. I am in need of such a jig right now. The notch idea is great; Without it, one would need a different jig for each diameter leg.

    My advice is to buy a good spray finishing hvlp. Don't buy a starter system. You'll only get better and better at it and demand more and more out of the system.

    Dumb question alert: If the only reason you were averse to using a power tool (table saw) is twist, then why not an edge router with a rabbet bit?

    Yes, it is the same as quartersawn. I think softwoods are commonly called vertical grain, and hardwoods, quartersawn.

    Although I’ve bought vertical grain walnut, so go figure.

    My theory is...

    Come to think of it, I don't roll a burr on my cabinet scraper blade. I hone it to 8000 like a normal plane blade and use it as is. It works fine that way.

    Yes, dial all the way to the left. That will be about 1750 rpm. I've been running my cbns at that speed for a couple years. no issues.

    One more thing I'd add. The Proshop version 1 did not have a riving knife. That was ultimately the reason I upgraded from it. If it had one, I am not sure I would ever have needed to upgrade.

    Do you by any chance have a Worksharp? That and a diamond lap blade would make quick(er) work of this.

    I wish someone had given me this advice when I started turning green wood:

    Don't try to salvage cracked wood.

    There's 2 reasons:

    1) it's not safe. Cracked wood - even glued or filled - is...

    A bag liner mitigates this. Of course you have to still wear a respirator, but it's only to pull out the liner and cinch up the trash bag. Easy-peasy(ish)

    I would not use acetone to clean up the joint. It can wick into the wood too well, meaning you risk a stain as it carries some epoxy into the wood . Just use a putty knife or wait until it dries...

    A jamb chuck will protect the inside. However, if you are too aggressive with it, it can spin out which can burnish the inside. To prevent this, I use kt tape or sometimes even just a used 5...
