    Tile wall to drywall bathroom remodel - hvac supply fix

    My mother had her bathroom remodeled from 60s style thick half wall tiles to drywall, but the drywall is thinner than the now removed tile wall. The problem I noticed is that the hvac supply vent sits away from the drywall. And the hvac duct is fixed inside the wall. I am wondering if anyone...

    Help - Gravel driveway and weed control

    I’m sure there are a couple of members out there with a gravel driveway. I was hoping some of you can share secrets to controlling weed growth in the driveway. I know Roundup is probably the easiest solution, but I would like to also prevent weeds from growing. I am not too knowledgeable with...

    Four Sided Chamfer tabletop Panel

    First off I’m not sure how better to explain what I am trying to explain besides the current title - so my apologies in advance. I was watching a YouTube video and saw a design which I haven’t seen before. The A Glimpse Inside channel created a coffee table for March of Dimes but chamfered every...

    Milliput Epoxy Putty Inlay

    I watched an interesting wood turning video which included an epoxy putty inlay. I have not seen this before and thought it would be good to share. Does anyone have experience with using this epoxy putty? Seems like there could be a wide range of applications aside from woodworking. Bubinga...

    Help identifying hinges

    Can anyone help me identify the hinge(s) in the included picture? The parts seen are broken, if that was not already clear. The table can be stored or displayed with the table top flipped up one side over the other. And when you want a larger table you can swivel the two pieces and unfold it...

    Suggested Woodworking YouTube Channels or TV Shows?

    As a supplement to the information I learn from NCWW and any inspiration I get as a result, I also like to rely on YouTube as a source of inspiration and learning. On my bus ride into work, I typically will search new and interesting woodworking videos from YouTube. However, I always seem to get...

    Mother's Day Build

    My brother and I have talked about building some outdoor furniture for mother's day, and well... time is almost up. I know the basic design I would like to build, but I have some questions regarding the materials and finishing. The items will be designed to sit on their front porch, which will...

    Wishing I had nicer boots today

    So I don’t really have a good pair of all-season boots: used for yard work, trekking through snow, in a garage or shop setting, etc. And with the rain/ sleet/ snow today I wish I bought a new pair in the fall. For the past few weeks I have been browsing boots options (danners vs red wing, etc...

    First piece complete

    I want to give a big thank you to Michael Mathews for his assistance and advice in completing my first wood turned piece. I have done very little turning - nothing from beginning to end. I completed work on a baseball bat I have worked on for a few weeks now. This bat will strictly be a...

    Replace kitchen knife handles

    Does anyone have experience replacing kitchen knife handles? I bought a few inexpensive knives today and have been thinking about restoring knives for my next project(s). The handles can be salvaged with some work, but I think replacing the handles will be better long term. Any comments? From...

    Finishing a Maple and Walnut End Grain Chessboard

    So I have been working on a chessboard and need some advise for finishing. I have convinced myself to rub out my finish to a nice semi gloss. However, I need a path to get there. I have considered lacquer, but I am not experienced enough to speak to how I should prep the end grain prior to...

    Received a Free Lathe

    So my father mentioned his buddy was willing to part ways with his lathe. He didn't mention any specifics but I visited VA this weekend and picked up a functioning secondhand tool. Honestly I never thought I would have a lathe, but now my possibilities for design include wood turning. I do not...

    Tabletop Endgrain Butcher Block Specs

    I have been considering a butcher block as my next project. I would love to create a butcher block island, but I think that project is a little on the advanced side for my experience. So I am opting to test my skills on a table top block as a possible gift. I have a few questions I am hoping...

    Block Plane Repair

    I am in the middle of making the bench plane I just bought from an antique mall functional. I paid all of $20 for it and have done a majority of the repairing just today. I have watched a fair share of plane repair/ refinish/ sharpening videos to get by with the work myself - at least I hope...

    New Member near Hillsborough, NC

    My name is ward green and I recently registered with the website. I am very new to wood working but it is an art I have respected for many years. I did not have much space to do wood working before my wife and I moved a few months ago. So I am embracing my creativity and the challenge to build...
