    It was a pie cooling on the window sill David, too good to pass up. "Reggie Jackson" was a nice touch! I had to Wiki him to get the full meaning.

    All future pies will stay on the sill. Chris.

    As others have mentioned, it takes a sharp steel and repeated passes, chatter is the kiss of death. I like to adjust the blade to its full depth in stages, this really helps for me. I've done a fair...

    I have been waiting for this for some time David! The pot calling the kettle black. Over thinking is stock in trade around here if you know what I mean, and "practical problem" had me bent over...

    Wow, the "experts" weigh in

    Sean, don't get too riled up by your detractors from the peanut gallery. Predictable and pathetic. You actually made the piece that you posted, not for a paying patron or the State, you did it...

    Oh my...

    Someone has actually learned about sharpening, but likely not from a woodworking forum! Sparks can fly and you can still touch the cutting surface when all is right.

    Right over the edge

    I grind a brand new edge so effectively I grind over the edge! I realise that this may seem impossible to a person starting out but with the right touch it is easy as pie. As I mentioned, you won't...

    The effort required to ruin an iron or chisel on a dry bench grinder would be monumental and there would be severely burnt digits involved. Sure you might monkey up a portion of blade, but having to...

    Scarf joint as others have recommended but I would be more aggressive and try for 20 to 30 degrees. Easy to do on a table saw with a 5 minute jig using your mitre guide.

    I use argon from my TIG welding set up as it's paid for and on hand. I agree that it is worth isolating many finishes from air.

    White ash is versatile and a colour cameleon

    I really enjoy using white ash in my shop and if you take the time you can make it look as light or dark as you want. Here is some white ash that I dyed and glazed to get a rich dark brown effect. I...

    I'm not sure of your banding profile but I would suggest using black dyded swiss pearwood veneer, I have used it for banding material for years and it really fits the bill. Google A&M Wood Specialty...

    I use my oven for tempering, it works just fine. It can be stinky as pointed out. David's suggestion for a torch is a good one. On larger blades I may use two torches and have even made a crude oven...

    The right set

    I find that setting a saw just right, for me, eliminates any need for wax. Never used it. Of course if you need to make a cut and you don't have time or can't set your saw then wax away to get the...

    You're stoked but you've sold your stove? Whaaaat?

    Seems like you're living right and good things are coming your way.

    Woodworking with handtools may be a cult thing but it shouldn't be a religion. Look at the oldest of American woodworking shops, they had machines. Just because you like woodworking by hand doesn't...

    Nice shop made solution. It's funny how long something annoys us before we fix it! Guilty as charged.
