    Wood thickness for loom

    I need to build a triangle loom for a friend. I want something pretty nice, so I'm thinking ash, cherry, or whatever hardwood I can get easily, locally. 8' on the hypotenuse, half-lap joints on the corners, two different colored nails alternating. If I'm looking for stock about 3 inches...

    holdfast - minimum bench thickness?

    I picked up Shwartz's workbench design book yesterday and got through the first few chapters. I was surprised to read that holdfasts don't work as well with a really thick top - as I had assumed the thicker the better. I was pleasantly surprised that he also said they are good down to about a...

    Got thickness planer - now what?

    Look at this beauty I just picked up: The top part weighs over 70 lb and the motor (1 hp Dayton) and stand feels even more! I took it apart to clean and oil some parts but mainly to get at the knives: I honed them until the stones glazed over (any hints on removing the glaze? I soaked...

    Bench thickness and hold fasts?

    I'm still working on my bench and I'm getting ready to do the top. I am planning on 3/4" dog holes on a bench that is around 1" thick. Since the hold fast wedges in, is 1" thick enough for that to happen? Also do I buy a 3/4" hold fast for 3/4" hole, or are they 1/16" or something smaller? Wes

    Plug thickness to hide screws?

    I have a project where I am abutting two cabinets. They do not have face frames but are edged with 3/4" thick maple. There is a visible gap when abutting the cabinets. I want to pull them together by screwing the maple edging together from adjoining cabinets. But I would like to hide this with a...

    Need to resurface & thickness plane old barn wood

    I'm dismantling my brother-in-law's 100+ year old barn a little at time to see what kind of lumber is there, condition, etc. So far it's mostly white oak and some pine but I'm hoping to be surprised by some chestnut or maybe walnut too. The unpainted wood looks to be flat sawn and was probably...

    thickness planer

    If I wanted to laminate several thin boards together, different color species, to make a design as they are shaped later, would a thickness planer be sufficient to mill them and glue up? Or do most still use a hand plane to take out any marks from the machine? If it makes any difference, it...

    Thickness Planers - How Thin??

    I have a DW735 planer that I have primarily used to thickness plane down to 1/4"-3/4" lumber. The depth turret is graduated down to 1/8th" It would seem to me that at that height, the knives are getting awfully close to the planer bed. As thin as I have planed is 1/4". Has anyone ever...
