    Stratocaster Build - From Scratch

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    While I'm waiting for the parts to arrive for the Tele (delivery is slow during the gift giving season), I decided to get a start on the guitar that I've wanted for a VERY long time. :) I went to Guitarre Plans and downloaded everything I could find on the Strat - .jpg, .pdf, .dwg & .dfx. ...

    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

    Chinese Hand Tool Woodworking

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    I came across these on another forum, or at least a link to one or two of them. Given the discussions in other threads, I have a serious preference for watching professionals do woodworking vs. the kinds of things that we've been talking about lately. Most of the stuff aimed at beginners gives no...

    On Customer Loyalty ... ?

    Thread Starter: Bill Stearns

    Hey All - While some profess to have gained a high degree of customer loyalty, others say there is no such thing! Wondering? - Has anyone yet tried developing a "loyalty building program" for their engraving business? - a "promotional way" of generating (ensuring) greater repeat business?...

    Powermatic 66 - Dust collection Improvements?

    Not a 66, but an old Unisaw we have was made to work pretty good. I built a wooden box over the motor that has a slide in 12x12" furnace filter

    Kitchen Cab Hinges

    I like Salice hinges. Woodworkers Supply sells them. You get a discount if you have a "Pro" account.
