  1. Yesterday
  2. Shouldn't be too hard to move with all the shortages in the supply lines right now.
  3. No I’m not giving up sanding, I may be the rare bird that likes the RO150 and don’t break out the others. I do think that being good with planes can eliminate a lot of sanding. If someone here was looking, I could part with them, if there is no interest, I will keep for now or list on FOG or other forums.
  4. Wow Bryan are you giving up the sanding stage on your projects? Are you going the hand plane route?
  5. Very nice work! I really like the through tenon look!
  6. Hey this is good to know! I order quite a bit from there, if a big purchase is going to be made I’ll let ya know. Will be more than happy to help you out anyway I can.
  7. I’m not 100% certain I’m going to get rid of anything yet, but I am thinking about listing some items. I figure I would see if anybody was interested or looking at adding to their collection here before I do anything official. What I am considering selling are: RTS 400 sander plus systainer of paper LR32 set plus 1080 holey rail RO 90 sander set plus systainer of paper ETS 150/3 36mm hose, it isn’t the antistatic version If anybody was local or knew someone relatively local, I would consider moving my MFT/3. If anyone is interested, I can come up with a pr
  8. On the nightstands that I am copying the thru tenons are fake and then to top it off there is no top apron either so that makes them just dumb. I drew them in because they where on the originals but never really planned to incorporate them. They are edge grain to edge grain but I did put in a few small floating mortises just cuz. The legs are 2 inches square the aprons are 3/4" and I just used floating tenons with mortises.
  9. Looking great Chet! I like the banding. Couple of questions: 1) why did you decide to do away with the thru tenons on the front of the legs as in the initial design? 2) the side panels are flush with the legs. Are they set and glued into rabbets or did you rabbet the panels to fit into grooves in the legs. Hope the terminology is correct? 3) the legs are proud of the aprons. How did you perform that? I went back thru this thread and zoomed into the pics but couldn’t pick these out.
  10. Last week
  11. Next thing I did was get the top on and trimmed it out with some shop made molding and added a banding detail around the case at the base and below the top drawer. There is one other detail I am adding. I am doing a faux through tenon with a pyramid design on top on the from two legs. I removed most of the waste with a forstner bit. Then I clamped my template and routed out the rest. Then leaving the template in place, I cleaned up the corners with a chisel. and it left me with this on the two front corners.
  12. lol.. Thought for the future.. It only takes a minute to add a link. Appreciate you!
  13. dang too bad you didnt have the amazon link when I ordered my sawstop 😞
  14. There's 2 new buttons at the top of the page. The first is for affiliate links and the second is for my online store. As most of you know, I pay for all this stuff myself so, am looking to expand a little to make it self sufficient. By using these links to purchase or buying from my store, you help sustain what I do here. The affiliates page is still being populated so, if there's an item you'd like to see there drop me a note and we'll get it added. I'm sure you can understand this is a huge undertaking! Special thanks to my wife and son for putting this together while I

    Thanks Bryan. I have some qtr sawn sycamore that I got from @Spanky and will use it as it will be under the patio cover and will be easier to work with. Chestnut on WTO recommend an outdoor finish and I will use it.

    It was probably 7-8 years ago. I made a few small items, like a tablet holder and business card holders for a few clients. I don’t have any of them so not sure how it aged. I tried turning as pen blanks, just didn’t work well. The 1 piece I have left is a dark brown. It will get lighter and a bit of a red with age and UV exposure. Reason it’s called Brazillion Cherry. I have seen on a few boats and looks great, but hard to acquire in long useable lengths. I actually like teak better, but it is just to damn expensive.

    Bryan, how long ago did you use it and what is the color now compared to when you used it? What did you use it for?

    Hard as a rock on tools. Some people are really allergic, luckily not me, that’s how I got a few boards. It is a great wood. It can be hard to find in sizes other than deck boards, so if you glue up, you need to clean before glue.

    Yeah, further investigation says on the Janna scale, it the second hardest wood in the world. Perhaps I should choose an alternate. Thanks

    I have not personally built with it but, I do know that it's primarily used for decking and it's harder than a rock! I've heard stories of people wearing out drill bits after just a few pilot holes. Don't let that scare you off, those stories are from run of the mil DIY'ers so take it with a grain of salt.

    Either my search skills are lacking or it hasn’t been mentioned on here. I need to build a couple of small end tables for our patio and if I like the resulting looks of the wood, a couple of larger tables. Google search shows it used mainly for decking. Have any of you had experience with this stuff?
  22. Next time she makes fun of your markings, go buy 200 BF, eventually she will stop messing with you or you will have more than enough wood to mess up without given a second thought.

    Welcome Bmac

    Enough chit chat Bmac time to start posting some of you cool journals. 😂
  24. Yea she just likes to give me a hard time about all my excessive markings on my work pieces that keeps me from screwing up.
