    We have been having some problems lately with the finish bubbling on the inside corners of guitars that are being finished with lacquer. It happens either at a neck joint or at the bridge on a steel string guitar. We are at a loss as we have tried thinning the lacquer more and we also have tried...

    Brought back a few tools from my trip to Baltimore last week!

    Well My brother decided to go thru some of his tools that were his and that he inherited from my father when he died back in 2000. He has decided that he isn't going to be building things as much as he use to and decided to pass some on down to me since I'm still actively building things. First...

    Well I ordered my first set of high end chisels and a couple of marking knives from Japan Woodworker. They are the Matsumura Blue Steel Bench Chisel in 1/8",1/4",1/2"and 3/4" along with a 1/2" Matsumura Blue Steel Cabinet Chisel for tighter spaces. I do have to say these are so much nicer to use...

He sent the following test equipment for me to take readings on my home built Pentz design cyclone. Dwyer 471 hot wire anemometer, a UEI EM151...

    Live edge table opinions please

    This is a current project I'm working on. It's my first ever live edge table and I feel like I'm stuck. I was going to do straight tapered legs but just didn't like the look so I gave them a slight curve with a taper. Then I took a piece of 1/4" ply and attached the legs to it, set the top...

    Finally building my new downdraft/out feed table

    Well I finally got off my rear and got started building my downdraft/out feed table. I had enough of all the dust from sanding and am not ready to take the plunge yet on a mirka ceros sander just yet. I built it with left over plywood from some jobs I had. The squirrel cage furnace fan Norma...

I thought about it for about two hours and finally responded to the add and found out he still had it. Not sure if it was a good deal but for $150 I figure I couldn't go wrong as the...

    This might explain the fines in the filters!

    Today my wife and I went to empty the dust bin on my cyclone today and found this. This is the second time this has happened to me. I'm not sure what to do now as the Black flex was more heavy duty than the clear flex that I had on there. Anyone else ever have a problem like this? Any...

    Phase III dresser

    Well after getting my computer working correctly again I went ahead and doodled up a drawing in sketchup for the dresser. Now I have to see how much walnut I need to get to go with what I have left over from what I got off of Larry. I figure I would challenge myself a little with the compound...
