    I have a log!

    I am in need of some help with sawing a 250lb. Bradford Pear log sitting in my driveway! I want to make a 2 inch (seat) bench top out of it! I need help because I can't seem to get a sawyer to even look at it to run it through a mill. Any ideas? It's too big for a chainsaw! More photos are in...

    TS sits there collecting dust...

    Many of you remember that last year I cut the tip of my left middle finger off while doing a foolish thing on my table saw. I have avoided using the TS since. I have a great band saw, a mitre saw and a router table. I'm also getting pretty good at using my Dads old Disston. The only thing I...

    Flattening edges

    I have two piece of Walnut I need to join lengthwise. I know how to do that, I just need to get these edges flat for joining. I have planed and sanded each edge but when I check them for flatness there is ALWAYS an area in the center part of the board that is still not where I need it to be. So...

    A bunch of hooey?

    A friend of mine whom I have known for years has told me that her Dad used to use her mothers ultra-sonic jewelry cleaning machine to clean his chisles after use and after he would sharpen them. I can't see any reason this would do any good. Any ideas?

    Even a SawStop would not work...

    Normally guys I would post something funny about just how dumb I was today. Well, I had a tablesaw accident this afternoon. It wasn't funny but I was sure dumb! The first of all the dumb things I do is run my saw without the blade guard. Or a riving knife. Never again. I was trying to move a 4...

    Gloat Alert!

    Christmas came a bit early for me here. I really needed a drill press. Not a big one, at least not a big one right now. :-) Anyway, we went to the Borg and got a nice 12" Ryobi with Laser Crosshairs and speed control. It's really awesome and just what I need. One of these days I will be able...

    What happening at Steel City?

    I was just at Woodcraft in Matthews and they told me that they are no longer carrying Steel City tools. The reason he thought was that Steel City could not produce product. He said there isn't a problem with the tools at all, that it was probably upper management. Too bad, I wanted one of the...

    WIP: You do NOT want to know what this will be.

    Here's a photo of my latest project. No, it's not going to be a Blanket Chest. This item needed to look like a nice piece of furniture. Just suffice it to say it will hold something! I am waiting for the "36 hinge to come from Rockler so I can send it back for a 48" hinge that's coming! Geez...

    My new Vac sucks!

    Hee, sucks things up real nice! I got it Friday evening after my little 6 gallon Shop-Vac died. It's a Rigid 16 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac/ WD1851. I love this thing. No, I haven't replaced my table saw yet. (Probably won't for a long time!)

    Measure Once, Cut Right Through...

    Resource for Ash.

    I'm building a bench to set at the foot of our bed. I'm thinking Ash would be good and much cheaper that some of the other hardwoods out there. Maple is my other choice, but I haven't worked with it much. Does anyone have a resource for Ash in the Charlotte area? I'm not even sure how many bf I...
