    Is posting videos on youtube showing second-rate skills or results fine with you?

    Thread Starter: Simon MacGowen

    I have come across quite a number of "tutorial" videos on youtube with good intentions, trying to share hand tool techniques with everyone, that are in my opinion below the fine woodworking quality. The most common examples are those showing the finished joints with tiny or unsightly gaps,...

    Yet another shop build.... McFarlane

    Thread Starter: mark mcfarlane

    After a 9 month battle with the local water district over an easement, we started clearing the land for my new shop today. It was amazing to watch these guys clear the land. We had three 80-100' pine trees removed and about a dozen smaller ones. One of the tall trees was 2 feet off my...

    Does being neander change how you see things?

    Thread Starter: Matt Lau

    I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a woodworker. However, I'd like to think that dabbling in neandering has helped me see the world very differently (sorta like learning to cook). For me, it's a dislike of MDF, "floating" desks, and vaporware electronics (which is ironic, since I...

    LOML made a few garage sale purchases for me that were best described as overpriced scrap.

    Beware Danish Oil in Plastic Jugs!

    From the MSDS sheets I could find mineral spirits make up a good percentage of Watco Danish Oil so I would try that first. However, I'd probably get

    Rawhide mallet

    Have not used it. The rawhide tends to fall out fairly easy. I do have a THOR Hammer. It currently has nylon screw on faces, but they offer a great selection
