    I thought I would post my latest project because I am thrilled with the reduction in time it takes me to produce these 'guys.' My dad has been making pig shaped cutting boards as gifts for friends and family for as long as I can remember. He has two paper templates (for a big pig and a little...

    Digital Woodworking

    I wanted to share my first "fully digital" woodworking project. I was a little worried that going digital would be somehow less satisfying, but I am finding that going digital lets you be more creative in the design aspect and it takes some of the stress out of the part cutting process. This...

    UV cured coating

    Hey everyone, long time since I've been regularly active on here! Hopefully this post won't break any rules - if so, please remove it. About 2 years ago, the company I work for developed a polish for a UV cured coating that was too hard for existing wood finishing polishes. I bought some of...

    Clearvue Cyclone Install Comments

    I decided on the Clearvue cyclone and so far I am not impressed. I am hoping that that performance will make up for the installation issues. Here are some comments: I purchased the $45 mounting bracket and wish I hadn't. It is very cheap 1/8" thick aluminum and while it may support the...

    New Shop Dust Collection

    Advice on Workshop Move/Storage

    Hey all. I am sure I am not the first person to go through building a new shop at a new house, so I am looking for advice and what works and doesn't work. I sold my current house and have to be out a month from now. My new house does not have any shop space and I will be building a shop...

    Help with Powderpost Beetles

    I have a friend who commissioned a rustic dining table a few years ago. The table used reclaimed barn wood. I was at her house over the weekend and she mentioned to me that she occasionally finds small dust piles under the the 4x4' used as stretchers and that she finds dead powderpost beetles...

    Anyone out there have a laser engraver?

    I would like to make a laser engraving of my girlfriend's Naval commission. The original was mounted on a pine plaque over 20 years ago and was coated/laminated with some type of finish that has yellowed over time. Getting a new copy is very difficult, but I would like her to have a copy that...

    PM 3520B or something bigger?

    Well I've been AWOL from the site for a while, but I am interested in getting folks opinions on what I should get for my next and last lathe. I won't say that money is not an object, but there isn't a lathe on the market that I have ruled out (except for the big Laguna Pinnacle). I keep coming...

    New shop buddy

    I got around to adopting a new shop buddy a few months back. He is a ~4 year old rescue that appears to be part Lab and part German Shorthair Pointer. He's a great dog, and enjoys the shop when I'm working with hand tools or finishing. He's not a big fan of power tools, he may be a neander...
