    Think more like a baton, narrow and solid on both ends.
  2. How to you finish the base of a spindle while on the lathe?

    Specifically if you're turning a spindle and the both ends need to show, how do you finish them? If you leave them attached to waste material it leaves an unfinished spot where you eventually cut it...
  3. Anyone ever made a miter box for Japanese pull saws?

    I was thinking it might be useful. I can probably work something out myself, but I was wondering if anyone had any good designs.
  4. Do Hock blades work with vintage Stanley chip breakers?

    I'm concerned that the extra thickness will cause the screw to engage poorly.
  5. Is there a way to cut mortises cross-grain?

    I tried to do it on a project I was working on and I did not have a good time. My very sharp chisel could cleanly cut into the into mortise, but I couldn't get the waste to clear from the sides. It...

    Marty hit the nail on the head. The concern isn't holding the drill bit, it's holding the work-piece.

    How do you feel about the woodcraft 4-jaw chuck for $99? It's fairly well reviewed and I have...

    Drilling very straight for very cheap

    I have a challenge to overcome and maybe you guys can help me.

    I just got my lathe, grinder, tools etc and I'm out of money. I don't have a chuck because I didn't need one immediately... I can do...
  9. Most durable non-toxic finish you can think of?

    I need some recommendations. I'm looking for something that is extremely hard wearing, scratch resistant, easily applied on a lathe, but also completely non-toxic. It's being used for eating...

    Lapping planes correctly

    Simply put... I suck at it. I bought a piece of fairly thin glass from home depot and have adhered sandpaper to it using spray adhesive. I put so much time and sweat into trying to lap my Stanley #4...

    I tried a couple weeks ago but they said they sell out same day they come in and they aren't expecting any more until February.
  13. Is a fenced router plane a poor substitution for a plow plane?

    I was considering purchasing the veritas small plow plane for cutting grooves and dadoes, but man is it expensive. I also need a router plane for other (more general) purposes. I noticed that the...

    That is an excellent idea. Sometimes the simple solutions just slip right by me as I strain my brain working through needlessly-complex ones. I even know this place in Mesa like 15 minutes away that...

    I really appreciate all the help. I have read that book, but the reason I looked away from the english bench is because the apron makes it difficult (or impossible) to clamp things to the bench top.
  16. Torsion box workbench for hand tool use?

    I was all set to use a laminated douglas fir top for my new workbench (basically hand tool only use), but I asked for tips on ripping the lumber without a table saw over in the general woodworking...

    Oops I meant to tell you what I was making but totally forgot. I'm laminating them together for a bench top.
  18. How to safely rip 2x12 lumber without a table saw?

    I need to accurately rip some 2x12 boards into multiple 2x3.5 boards. They are about 5 foot long. Because this is home center lumber (douglas fir) I also need to knock the rounded corners off.

    They are on the northern edge of the Phoenix metro area. I live right in the middle of it about 30 miles away. They had much more intense weather than we did I guess.

    Fallen Sissoo tree... turning blanks?

    There was a nasty storm last night at my parents house and their fiarly large sissoo tree blew over. It's probably about 25-30 feet tall (but I'm not good at eyeballing these things). I guess it was...

    It's way more satisfying than I ever imagined it would be. I see so many planes sold as "rustic decor" because people think they're useless. It's nice to feel like you saved a piece of history from...

    Not at all hard to believe. I routinely see plain old Baileys in antique stores for over $90. In fact I don't think I have ever seen one in restored condition for less than $100. I will take the $15...
