    Shop safety equipment

    I recently had an eye opening experience that has prompted this post. I'll go more into that experience in a moment. I've gone many years with the standard box of out of date medical supplies (and duct tape) in the shop but I want to upgrade to proper equipment. I live alone and plan to do...

    BB55 is the Battleship North Carolina. I was asked to help rebuild the helm wheel as it fell in disrepair from years of grade schoolers spinning the wheel from lock to lock. I gotto admit it was fun and exciting to get involved in it. The wheel itself is 24 inches in diameter and made of...

    Cutting Board Finish?

    I know this has only been asked a few hundred times here but I can't remember what your supposed to use for cutting board finish. Heck, I've even made and finished a few boards in the past. I know we have a few pros in the ranks so I though I'd throw the question out one more time. My BIL...

    Winchester Chest Complete

    I’m sure some of you recognize the chest from the Klingspor Show or from Dave O’s post concerning the same. Initially, I considered doing WIP photos & descriptions but those thoughts were short lived as it proved to be quite a task to just “git er done” much less document it. For those...

    Dover Inlay Co. closing

    Don’t know if you folks ever used them but today is Dover Inlay’s last day of business. I found that out is morning when I inquired about my order.
