    The One Stone Challenge

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    Maybe more of a challenge for everyone else, I've pretty much been following it already. But by the one stone challenge, I mean picking one stone (that you already have) that you will use for your entire sharpening process, and using it for everything (all of your planes, all of your chisels)....

    Living "Off the Grid"

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a friend who believes he lives "off the grid" though he does have electricity. He lacks a phone and water. Today is tax day and he hasn't filed in nearly a decade. Of course, he doesn't earn enough to file. Lives on a small "farm" where he piddles around and doesn't get much accomplished. In...

    Thread Starter: Derek Arita

    Any have or are familiar with the Very Super Cool Tools table saw fence? Saw the Wood Whisperer do a little vid on them, so I took a look at the web site. Looks really neat. It's supposed to be dead flat, adjustable and versatile. I'd love to hear some feedback from someone who uses one.

    Help matching this Pottedy Barn finish...

    Thread Starter: Michael Dunn

    Hey guys! As detailed in another thread I'm building a large 'built-in' solid hickory shelving unit. My client wants to match the finish of his desk. I believe the desk is oak with some sort of walnut or brown mahogany type stain. I had my client come out to the shop and see some samples over...

    Digital versus hard copy

    Thread Starter: Moses Yoder

    I kind of prefer the digital world. Okay, for some books that would be sacrilege, like Krenov or Nakashima, but most everything I do nowadays is on my lap top. I have a good but relatively cheap HP laptop with 4 gig memory 750 gig HDD with a 2.4 Ghz Core I3 processor, Windows 8.1. All of my music...

    Thanks Bert, I did that. I was more interested on the insides of those bases thinking that I could use batteries. But most of them seem to be wired and

    I have allergies so I invested in a 3M Adflo mask with a belt mounted power HEPA filter. I love it, but is quite expensive. The nice thing is I can use
