    Handplane Workshop

    I had a great day at the workshop. Could have stayed at home and done this, but it is good to get out, meet other members and see other ways of doing things. This was a bunch of tools that are being put together for green wood spoon carving and possibly working towards primitive Windsor chair...

    Tool box plans

    After casting around for a tool chest, I settled on a Japanese style since I needed something more for transport than onsite storage which I already have. It is quite functional and I have been pleased with it both functionally and visually. Here is a previous thread...

    Bee Houses - new outreach project

    I have used drilled wooden blocks with parchment paper liner tubes for over a decade. I have never had a problem with carpenter bees. They are located right off my back deck along the driveway. The bees are only active for around 6 weeks when the Bradford Pear trees and the blueberry bushes are...

    Arts and Crafts Desk

    Beautiful design! I have always liked that type of desk with the open bookshelves. The endpanels for them are striking. I use a payroll desk with a vertical crossbar underneath and you either sit up straight or sit cocked to the side. Makes for a stronger unit, but it is uncomfortable...

    Plans for making Windsor Chairs

    Thanks for posting this info. Windsor chairs have started to interest me as of late. Right now my reading has centered on the style of chair that Drew Langsner makes so it is great to have other sources to explore. Seat carving looks rather complicated.

    Need some plane ID help

    You might want to consider that the tool was either made in house or possibly the product of a training program for patternmakers. That would explain the lack of markings.

    Dye in epoxy

    FYI: Many epoxies will yellow over time. Glass and ceramic restoration people use a product called Hextal, but it is very expensive. It stays clear.

    Re: Hardwood Inlay Workshop - Saturday 4/2/2016 - Liberty, NC I am looking to use this to decorate guitar headstocks and/or rosettes. So, Novice to intermediate would work for me. EDIT: The rope border is also of interest to me for use as purfling. Both in fabrication and application.

    Stanly #400 vise advice needed

    I have no experience using them, but they seem to be a mainstay in framing shops. There is a pair for sale on the Winston-Salem Cl for a similar price. Been there for almost a month.
