My name is Perry, age 52, I live in the eastern part of the state. I am a construction supt and love to work in my shop. Looking forward to reading about new ideas and making new aquaintances.
By the way my spelling sucks at times.[MAD][/MAD]
HELLO, and yes I am a Pirate.
Getting tired of trying to get up enough money to build a bigger one so I decided to renovate the one I have - I told my wife after reading some of the accidents and close calls that have happened to some others in a cluttered small shop - I will not be doing any wood work for awhile now
I have a Dell desktop PC that needs to have two Linksys wireless camera's provisioned to it. It will need a wireless Linksys card added as well (I have the card and software, and the camera's). The system is up to date on the OS patches (Windows XP).
I started to provision the camera's myself...
Hey guys, any of you hanging out here in the woodturner's forum section, turn turkey pot calls? I am looking for some wooden soundboards and was wondering if you had any good sources or if any of you produce your own?
I understand the simplicity in producing one's own, however sometimes going...
Thread is about teaching others in your shop and the inherent hazards involved. Ethan seems to have diverted it into a rant on insurance companies.

This is a swivel jewelery box - I made another one for NCTurner last year - The problem I have is with the top = It has a 1/4 rod down through one end and the top is setting on top of the rod - this is the front of the box - see where the top is setting close to the top drawer?

Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself... I was recently looking for a table saw on CL and a guy emailed me and told me to check out this site... I'm not super new to wood working but I took some time off due to losing my workshop and having to move into a small garage. Doing that I had to...
I just noticed that I have been a member for a year on the 7th - wow time flies:elvis: I sure have enjoyed being here and making new friends and learning more about wood working:icon_thum thanks everyone for helping me:eusa_danc
The last few bowls I have turned I tried using a jam chuck that I made out of a piece of Dogwood = I made it round - rounded off the edges on the end - I seen where some ppl use leather on the end and I have seen some use sand paper put in between the chuck and the bowl for gripping - I have...
I need a lid for this box. If any of you that are bringing lumber to the picnic can spare some maple for the top (26" X 30"), I'd love to take it home. I gave the finished size in case you only have cutoffs. 6 BF will do it.
I am confused about preparing a log for turning a bowl - I understand the sealing part - but spliting the log is where I am confused - Some have told me when I split the log down the middle I should have three pieces - the third being the pith - correct? How do I know what the pith looks like? I...
This is about as basic as it gets. Looks like it could be a fun project. Personally I don't favor canoes, too tippy for me, I want something wide enough to stretch out on the seat and take a nap.
Okay, I have $1000.00 coming back from the IRS. I NEED a bandsaw. I have narrowed it down to two choices:
The Rikon 14" @ 749.99 or the Grizzly 14" G0555 @ $511.50 with freight.
Getting the Grizzly would allow me to purchase some decent hardwood for some projects I have in mind and maybe...
