    Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry)

    Thanks for the offer Matt but the two thresholds I'm making are wider than your 26.75 long board.

    Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry)

    Anyone know of a source near Charlotte for Jatoba? West Penn, Steve Wall and Hardwood Store typically have it but I only need a few small pieces to make transitional thresholds between tile and wood floors and don't want to drive that far for a few BF.

    Wood identification please

    In California it's somewhat popular to char (burn) redwood to give it an aged look. They use it as shiplap and siding. Some aged spruce/redwoods can look similar to your pic and they are soft. But the char is typically on the outside layer. Can't tell from your pic but it appears like the...

    Opinion Request on planner

    Anyone have good/bad experience with DeWalt DW735 planner? And anyone put a helical cutter head on the DW735? I've seen good reports on here for years but am wondering if it's the same quality since DeWalt is now Stanley Black & Decker owned. Grizzly has the DW735 with helical cutter head kit...

    Flatbed trailer boards need replaced

    I'd stick with white oak. Pine not strong enough to take trailer abuse but that also depends on what you're hauling and how hard you use the trailer.

    Drum sanders, Jet, performax et al....

    Several folks have already mentioned this but I'll highlight it because I've had similar results as you and this really helped. Speed up the feed rate. This advice seemed counterintuitive to me at first but on high sugar content woods like maple and cherry, it helped reduce burning and gum...

    Black Walnut Floating Top End Table

    Love the design and build pictures Jeremy. Like how you arranged the grain patterns. I've had the same issues with epoxy fills. Depending on brand and formulation, epoxy requires special prep before finishing. Consult the manufacturer and see what they recommend. It typically includes...

    Band Saw - Minimax S45 - 18" Bandsaw - $600 (Charlotte, NoDa)

    Minimax is a darn good saw BUT the S45 came with an awesome fence and rail system that is not shown in the picture. He may have removed it but when inquiring, ask if he has the fence and rails. I he has them, this is a good deal. Wish I needed a bandsaw...
