    That seems like a lot of work to evaluate a control surface, albeit a very small control surface. A surface that has little practical application in any real project which invloves larger surfaces....

    Take your iron. Sharpen it properly. Properly? This means an intersection of two planes, the back, the bevel -crisp, so much so that it does not reflect light under a loupe. Stick it in about any...

    Hmm, I don't get it. I bought good planes, learned how to sharpen them well and then played with the few variables that they offered to get a tearout free cut in any wood and I moved on to using a...

    When I first started out I had a white collar job which required travel in my province, over night stuff. I worked 40 hours plus a week and spent another 40 in my shop, I burnt the candle at both...

    I've used and sold baltic birch for over 20 years and it is metric. As far as quality goes I believe that their are 5 grades and these deal with patches internal to the ply and on the external faces....

    Well Sean really said it all and eloquently at that.

    I have never stropped chisels or plane blades and never will. I go back to the stone and give it a quick lick. Done.

    Things get hot really quickly on belt sanders, you could easily draw the temper out of your tool steel so caution is required. Personally I don't think that this would yield accurate results in your...

    If you have a hand plane you can lose the planer sled, hand plane one face and edge then through the planer it goes. A scrub plane makes quick work of nasty jointing duties.

    I saw veneer on a regular basis and would agree with Chris for the most part. If you lay up 0.125" veneer on a solid wood core for say a tabletop you would be okay if you built the core properly,...

    If this tree has any figure it will be apparent right under the bark, easy to look for. As far as quarter, slab rift, unless you want musical instrument wood or drawer sides I'd suggest live sawing...

    I don't have an answer for you but I am sure that anyone asking this question as you have will do the right thing! Routers are pretty annoying but I enjoy hearing the symphony of other people working.

    It's likely paraffin, scrape it off. Use a solvent and you will drive it into the pores and create trouble down the road - glue joint failure trouble. I'd suggest that you check out the MC and keep...
