    Refinish Danish Teak Table Top

    First Wood Bending Project

    I started this little Kalimba about two years back as a graduation present for my daughter, who got her degree from UNC. She has tremendous musical gifts, and I thought this might be a welcome memento of her accomplishment. I was inspired by a YouTube video on making a ukulele, and felt that I...

    I am trying to source green stock that is suitable to steam bend. I will use it to form the sides of a Kalimba, in a guitar body pattern. Ideally, it would be something with figure, and attractive, as well as fairly easy to work with. Does anyone know of a source where I might find such a...

    Need Deck Chair Hardware

    In the process of power-washing my deck furniture today I discovered that one of our chairs has lost several key pieces of hardware. These chairs are teak, I think they were originally made in India? The hardware is brass, and consists of barrel bolts, allen head nuts, and stops. Does anyone...

    Would I ever love to have this in my shop!

    Sadly, it not only won't physically fit, it won't fit in the budget either. Talk about a one-of-a-kind treasure though! Things as beautiful as this simply do not happen along all that often ...

    What a dolt am I!

    Changed the blade on my bandsaw y'day to do a little curve work. Found it hard to use and that it was burning a lot. Strange, methought, is the blade dull? Checked it and it wasn't dull. Threw another board at it and same result. What is going on here? You guessed it - put it on upside...

    Home made sharpening station

    This project started out when I found a beautiful 1/3 HP NOS Baldor motor on CL for pocket change. I had it in the shop for over a year with nary an idea of what I would ever use it for when the seed of an idea started germinating in my noodle. This was the outcome...
