    It was fun while it lasted...

    All of about 30 seconds after I put in the splines. Oh well, it really looked nice, bloodwood head and a hickory handle. I think I'll actually let the glue dry over night next time, lesson learned. Good thing I hadnt glued the leather on the face. Randy

    Ive been neglating my table saw top, so i decided to take care of it today. I had done a glueup and some of it leaked through onto the top in a couple spots and made a few rust areas. I thought I was taking better care of the top but apparently not. I used my little find from Lowes with a...

    Seeing Multi Pages At One Time

    Is there a option to see more than one page of postings at a time? I visit Woodnet also and they have an option that you can see single pages or all the post at one time. I like this feature just to get a flow for the entire postings without changing pages. Kinda of lazy, I know. I can find an...
