    My Newest Playtoy

    After looking at and researching it for months, I finally decided to order a new bandsaw. It arrived Thursday and I got it set up and running today. I can see lots of veneers and book matching in my future. :wsmile:

    Which chuck to get

    I have an HF mini lathe that I have been turning pens with. I would like to get a chuck to go on it and have narrowed down my choices to 2 chucks from Penn State but I can't decide which to get.

    To Parallel or not to Parallel, that is the question.

    I am looking to get an 8" jointer. I probably should have jumped on that Grizzly with the paint blemish but I procrastinated too long, oh well. My question is about parallel adjustable beds. Is it worth the extra cost or will the dovetail style beds work just as well? Parallel beds are...

    Kitchen Light

    I finally managed to finish a project. Nothing fancy. Started out with a 4'. 4 tube T8 drop in light fixture and built a box to wrap it in. I couldnt resist box jointing the corners. Finished it with 2 coats of sanding sealer and 2 coats of polyurethane.

    Home Button

    Starting yesterday, when I hit the "Home" button at the top of the screen it takes me to the "What's New" page instead. I still get all the new posts but the format is different and is harder to read. Has something changed in the way the site works or have I changed a setting somewhere?

    Sweet Gum

    I am going to have a decent sized (18" diameter) sweet gum cut down soon. Should I try to make any of it into lumber? Is it worth making anything out of or should I cut it all up into firewood?

    Wood Glue

    Other than price, is there any reason to use anything other than Titebond III for all wood joints? I know there are times when you need other types of glue but when you just need a pva glue is there a time when you would prefer Titebond Original or Titebond II instead? I have been using...

    Mdf vs. Baltic Birtch

    A lot of the plans I find for various jigs recommend using Mdf plywood. It is very flat and stable. Somewhat cheaper as well. What I don't like about it is that all it takes is a little bit of water and it starts coming apart. Is mdf that much more stable than Baltic birch? With all the...

    Box Joints

    I am in the process of making a box joint jig. The fingers fit together VERY tightly. My question is how tight should they be? My fingers are measuring .499 and my slots are almost exactly .500. Any advice is appreciated.
