    You're a bit off base with that accusation. Yes, he is new to NCWW but maybe not so new to woodworking per se. Look at his introductory first post above and right below his member name (Hambone) is the term "Newbie". That's a NCWW term, not Andrew's or mine.

    Newbie, newb, noob, or n00b is a slang term for a novice or newcomer, or somebody inexperienced in a profession or activity.

    His descriptions of what he wanted to build are absolutely terrible. He begins with 4 pieces of 8/4 walnut (2" thick) and now we've got a leg that's 4" thick.

    A quick hand drawn sketch would have been really informative, but he's a newbie and still learning.
    Hambone,
    This isn't how we greet new members. Please accept our apologies. Jeff has a tendency to post with a total disregard for basic tact. His intention isn't usually as bad as the posts sound. Welcome to the site.

    Re: Bandsaw

    No need to apologize, I did not take offense to his post. I did not take it as a personal attack on myself and I agree I did not do the best job explaining what I was trying to accomplish but that was the best I could come up with at the time. Thanks again for everyone's help!

    Re: Bandsaw

    Not a problem Andrew. I couldn't really describe that process very well either.
    Best I can come up with after a week to consider it is "a large diameter (2"?) round over on the end grain of a 4" wide 8/4 piece of walnut."

    Point is that you needed a place to get it cut (and sanded) and we were able to do that.

    Mission accomplished, on to the next stage of the project.

    You gotta figure out how to post pics here because I do really need to see the final outcome - and as I told you, in process pics are even better. (I suspect your phone has a decent camera, so no excuses!)
