    I greatly prefer modern interiors, so I prefer the appearance of the second option. That said, I don't think the second option fits that kitchen, it seems to be mostly traditional appearing, nor do...

    Rip it, I would rip the rift sections off and rip the center up into quarter sawn material (the sides will be quarter sawn orientation) and use it for parts. After it is ripped up, give it a few...

    I wouldn't really work the top down into the divot, I think it'll look bad. I would work the entire live edge back until the divot mostly disappears, then blend it into the top carefully. Don't...

    I have the LN, it always manages to leave chatter. I have one from LV that chucks into a drill (you can use it in a handle instead) it's concave with a hole that terminates in a cutting edge, that...

    Thanks again fellas.

    The main reason I'm considering the Felder as opposed to other machines is because it offers the ability to also use a square chisel. However, truly every video I see of this...

    To reiterate something I said above, if you're using waterstones then you already have this problem. Diamonds are the hardest abrasive, but that distinction is mostly relevant only when working hard...

    I don't use loose diamonds much, and have avoided using them on Japanese tools for that reason, in afraid that will be the result.

    Pat, with respect, I don't see anything offensive? Patrick's insights are quite helpful.
