    Why don't you use ceramic stones?

    Thread Starter: george wilson

    Maybe I got lucky. My flattening of the White stone took about an hour,using a used diamond stone. It was slightly out of flat,and had a fuzzy spot of ceramic that had to go. I have seen pictures of "sawn" looking ceramic stones by Spyderco(my brand),but haven't encountered one personally. I got...

    Close-Up and Personal Look at the NEW Lie-Nielsen PLOW PLANE

    Thread Starter: Karl Fife

    Here are a few pictures I took of the much-anticipated Lie Nielsen Plow Plane (Plough Plane) while at Handworks 2015 in Amana, Iowa. Apparently I can only put 8 pictures in a post, so I'll reply to my own post with four more. As you know, this tool is based on the Miller's...

    Shop Cabinets

    Buffing questions

    Thread Starter: Aaron Craven

    I've had a few bowls recently that didn't have quite the sheen I wanted (primarily on oil finishes), so I've decided to pick up some buffing equipment. I'm not a big fan of wax for most items, so I'll probably skip the carnauba step (though I'm buying all three wheels in case I change my mind). I...

    Raised panel cutter for shaper

    Thread Starter: Susumu Mori

    Hi all, I have a shaper but for raised panels, I'm still using a router bit (3.5 inch). It runs and cuts fine with a 1/2 inch coupler and at 10,000 rpm. The shaper runs much quieter and smoother. So, I like it but it needs many passes (6-7 passes). I guess my question is, do you think it's...
