    The Butler's Desk - Build Thread

    Thread Starter: Brian Holcombe

    Good morning! I've begun working on a cabinet in my spare time, this one features a fold down desktop to serve as a workspace when needed and to remain out of the way when it's no longer needed. Check out the work shown here https://brianholcombewoodworker.com/2016/05/07/the-butlers-desk/

    Recommendation for new dovetail saw?

    Thread Starter: Pat Barry

    I want to get a new dovetail saw to replace my existing backsaw for dovetail cutting. The current saw is a standard backsaw (Pennsylvania Saw Corporation #78, 12ppi, 12" long, 3" deep). I also have another even larger backsaw and a Zona universal razor saw. I'd like something easier to control...

    Sharp chisels!

    Thread Starter: Jeff Bartley

    Sharp chisels yes! But not at the end, on the sides. I'm just wondering how many here have been cut up by the edges of their chisels? And does anyone purposely dull the side edges to prevent this? Jeff (with a slice on his index finger!)

    Thanks for the detailed pictures and explanation Mike. Yes, was a dangerous cut but many of us might have done something like that.
    Glad you are

    My beaters are a set of old Marples with the black/blue handles which have the steel caps on the ends - not sure if you can find these new but cheap on

    Must be a heck of a bowl gouge

    Steve, I appreciate the response. I've been happy with your stuff, especially for the price. As my rambling tale stated, the other newbie LOVED it.

    I agree, it was a "dumb" cut but looking back I and anyone who has been doing woodworking for awhile have also done some pretty dumb things.

    Manhandling 4*8' sheets onto a slider

    The green 'rug' shows the 19' throw of the slider. (actually it's 18' * 12') but the extra 6 inches on each end shouldn't be a problem.
