    Yes, Elia. I have a travashier he made. I have talked to him about taking a class or getting some help with chair building. Wish he was a little closer to Metro Atlanta.
  2. Festool MFT 1080 vs 3 (TS 55 EQ saw)

    So my old chop saw has just about had it and I was thinking about buying a new one. It started getting expensive for a slider with some wort of mobile base for it....

    I like the Barr Carver's Drawknife. It has a 6 1/2" edge which I find a great size. It is flat ground on both sides, allowing the user to sharpen it different ways. WoodJoy makes 8" and 6" drawknives...

    There is a rasp that is machined but does not suffer the same issues as Chris mentions concerning the manufactured rasps in the video above. The Iwasaki rasps have long curved edges like a plane with...

    No two people work the same so different tools will work better for different users. For my time and money I prefer spokeshaves with blades that can be adjusted for depth of cut and size of mouth too...

    Like Derek mentions it depends on the wood. I have worked some dry oak chair backs that I could not use a drawknife or shave on because it was just to hard with too much cross grain, like the piece...

    Right, I understand the answer is complicated. On the other side of the coin it is even more complicated when one is not well versed in this particular genre of woodworking gear. I am considering a...

    Other Turning Stuff

    I have made several posts regarding various types of Lathes. A comment I have often seen suggests that the cost of a lathe is a small part of the cost of "turning". I am curious about the other items...

    They list two sale prices one says $9.95/ month for 12 months. The other says $100 year. I guess the $9.95 is billed monthly vs paying $100 in advance for a year to get a small discount. Under $10...

    Interesting thread. I did a little search to find out what happened to the guys that left PW, following Jim Matthews link above. Looks like Chuck Bender and Glen Huey started something called 360...

    I have used the Spyderco triangle stones for around 30 years, the same set. Like George mentions the edge they make may be over kill. The last I checked there was a diamond steel available which fits...

    drying kiln

    I am planing to make a kiln for drying green wood pieces.

    I am wondering if turners use kilns to dry bowls, vases etc. after turning them. The strategy of the green woodworkers is to pop smaller...

    Thanks for your thoughts Reed,Jack & Geoff.
    I am mostly interested in chair parts. The longest spindle on the Continuous Arm Windsor I made is a little over 23". I make all the longer spindles with...

    Wise thoughts I think Dave. I almost bought a Oneway 1224 or 1236 a few months ago but put off the purchase because of physical, financial and time constraints. I was also thinking, like you mention...

    Certainly deciding on a lathe is not "rocket science", still try to keep in mind that I have yet to turn my first bowl. Until I can figure out what additional parts I need to turn bowls and or how I...

    Hi Joe,

    You certainly got me thinking about the direction I was headed in when I first started my search/research. I have been having some allergic reactions on my hands that have limited my...

    Right Jason,

    It is always hard in these threads to determine how much detail to try to get into. Too much detail seems to cause threads to die, but then too little can do the same thing. Maybe it...

    I am a little confused regarding lathe prices I read on this forum. I have seen a couple posts where the Robust American Beauty is said to cost around $10,000. The price I see on the Robust site for...
