    Two of mine are drywall work and painting. I don't mind hanging drywall but I don't like finishing it. If I can spray, I'm okay with painting but brush or roller is not something I enjoy.

    Another place where I've used epoxy is when I have a very complex glue up that's going to take a long time to get together. The slow West Systems epoxy has a very long pot life - if you place your...

    The problem I had with Titebond cold press glue was lack of adhesion. I used some on a veneer panel and then sprayed the veneer tape with water to remove it. I got bubbles in the veneer in places...

    I've never had any problems with white glue and veneer - and I've used it a lot. I think creep may be more of a problem in bent laminations.

    Crawford's boxes are the result of years of work and experimentation. You need to start with the basics and work up to more complex designs.

    Regarding using veneer, start with a veneer design on...

    I use West Systems but I don't know if it comes in small quantities. I have the gallon container of resin. The catalyst (or whatever the second part is called) comes in a smaller container.

    I...

    Would you mind posting a picture of the body of the plane with the frog removed so we can see how the frog mounts to the body, please?

    I guess my experience is different than Ron's. When I get a chair to repair, it's almost always with the two dowels that Brian described. I know that I'm going to replace that, so if I can't get the...

    Just a comment on why I recommend epoxy. As Ron commented, if your joint is "perfect" it doesn't much matter what glue you use - any modern glue is stronger than the wood. But when I'm making a...
  11. To me, the TiteMark ...

    To me, the TiteMark is the Cadillac of marking gauges and it's less than $100. LV has one that works as well, is about $40, but is not as convenient as the TiteMark. If you go with the LV, get the...
  12. Unless you already have everything for those bead...

    Unless you already have everything for those bead lock tenons, I'd just hand cut the two mortises.

    The way I'd do it is to take the chair seat side and cut a mortise into it then glue a loose...
  13. Take those joints apart and put in a loose tenon....

    Take those joints apart and put in a loose tenon. Two dowels in that joint are absolutely not sufficient - they just do not have sufficient glue area to hold.

    I've repaired quite a number of...
  14. Paul Schurch...

    Paul Schurch. It's good tape, meaning it sticks - which is not true of some of the veneer tape I've tried (narrower stuff, not 2"). Get a brass bristle brush (not too stiff) and use it to brush the...

    If you took the chairs apart and did some good loose tenons in the side seat rail to back joints, and you glued them with good glue, AND you put good corner blocks inside the seat area, there's not...

    I'm in a two car garage. I have a table saw with a reasonable side extension with the router built into the extension, a miter saw, 8" jointer, 20" bandsaw, DeWalt 735 planer, Jet 1236 lathe, floor...

    Have you put a backing (really, a fronting) on the veneer? When I do detail veneer work, I use wide veneer tape (about 2" wide) and apply it to the show face of the veneer prior to cutting. The...

    I've heard the same thing, along with the question, "What are the two happy days in the life of a boat owner?" Answer: "The day you buy the boat and the day you sell it."

    And, of course, you...

    If you use them a whole lot, then carbide tipped bits are probably the best solution. If that's too expensive, the Famag have been good bits for me, and I think the Colt is probably equally good,...

    Okay, how about $65 shipped before it goes on eBay. It's a copy of the Stanley 65 so $65 seems right.

    I'm not sure I fully understand but you don't need the neutral on a 240V outlet - Just the two hots and ground.

    There are some outlets that include the neutral (so you can get 120V as well as...
  25. WoodRiver Low Angle Block Plane - $75 Shipped

    I have a few too many block planes - it's foolish for me to have so many when I mostly use one or two.

    The WoodRiver block plane is based on the Stanley 65 knuckle joint plane. I really like the...
