  • Howdy Folks


    I found this place from a simple search for wooden handcuffs(I found Pop's). That's nice of him to share. Like helluvawreck, I also hail from LumberJocks. This site looks good too.

    I've done various woodworking all my life. I began doing some "Fine woodworking" (Spoken with my best "nose up in the air" accent) about 5 years ago. I've done a little scrollwork here and there. I find myself going to that machine more and more now. I've just gotten word that I can join a group of woodworkers to sell in an Art Gallery and I thought I'd like some of that to be scrollwork. I'm probably at the upper end of the Beginner level. Maybe starting in the Intermediate.

    I teach woodworking at WoodCraft in Springfield(VA). I teach Fundamentals, Boxes, Shaving Horse, Hand Cut Dovetails, and am adding more. I like learning new techniques. I'm more of a power tool guy, not much on hand tools.

    After a few questions maybe I'll be able to have some work to show for it. I look forward to browsing around and getting to know you folks.

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
