  1. Today
  2. This is bad news. They were going to be playing locally in a couple weeks.
  3. Agreed! And a unique vocal style as well!
  4. Beautiful family Jamie! It’s quiet obvious that the girls got their good looks from mom! 😀
  5. Yesterday
  6. R.I.P. Dusty Hill. Going to miss your bass playin'.
  7. found a new guy on youtube, but I think this is new to me ... If I have seen the glove finish before it didnt stick in my memory. I am curious what type of finish this is? Can it be oil based? I would assume that would get expensive having to go through a glove each time ... thoughts? Here is his channel ... he is pretty much another Ishitani type build, no talking just great woodworking! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJkUhZ4Zlk6HTmeV-M4q06g
  8. A little wax on the screw also helps..
  9. Since it was a wedding gift, maybe they have never used it as a cutting board so nothing to report. I would think that repeated use and washing would make the paint chip away. Chet’s idea is a good 1.

    Now there is an idea

    Maybe you could hit the routed shapes and lettering with a propane or MAPP gas torch and then run it though the drum sander to clean up the edges to get them crisp looking again.

    That is a very good question, my answer is I don't know. I have done one other board like this and gave it away as a wedding gift to really good friends, they havent said anything to me about it chipping out. They are good enough friends that I would think they would mention it to me. My wife brought it up as well, thought we should maybe try stain in it.
  13. looks great! however, is paint ok for a cutting board? just curious on a few things .. like blood getting into the groves and cleaning it out, wont the paint start to chip after a few times of that? I am just curious ... I know a few cutting board FB pages I am on people lose their mind when people post an epoxy board haha. So curious if this is the same type of thing.
  14. nope, hand screwing ... I think the last batch of screws I had would of snapped themselves if they saw a drill coming at them 🙂
  15. Last resort is a 3" grk through the frame into a stud. Shouldn't go anywhere after that 🙂 Are you putting those small screws in with a impact or a drill? Maybe go the hand route.

    Made a few cutting boards for some gifts. This one here was made for our community park auction. The town has been building a new city park for a few years and do a Facebook auction as a fundraiser. Took the picture as it was in the process of soaking up some mineral oil yet. The state outline and lettering I cut in with a v groove bit and a plunge router. My wife has a circut that she cut the design out on, put the sticker on the board and painted over it. Removed the sticker to get the pattern to cut, then painted over the cut before sending back through the drum sander. With the variation in width on the letters I did try and adjust the depth of cut as I went Have to say it worked better than I thought. There are a few wobbles in the cut but I can live with them. For finish I like to hit with around 5 coats of mineral oil then use a butcher block conditioner product. Seems to be a wax and mineral oil mix.
  17. cool, I will have to go check it out and see
  18. Last week
  19. FWIW, I pick up that hardware at Lowes..
  20. ok cool, I will pick that and then and try it all out. LOL! I see what you did there, I am just but a young grasshopper 🤣
  21. Can’t help you there. Perfection at screwing, comes with practice. 😀
  22. I use the hardware you linked and pre-drill. I've never had an issue with the screws snapping.
  23. oh I snapped them just installing the screws, not actually hanging ... Most things are between a pound or 2 and maybe 10 at the most.
  24. How heavy is the item you are trying to hang? I can’t say that I have ever snapped a screw out of the wood using the hangers you show. The d rings you referenced show a support load of 10# and the cable of 30#. If my pic or mirror is too heavy or wide, I will use two hooks mounted on the wall at quarter points to help distribute the weight and stress. You might also just use the d rings with two wall hooks and eliminate the cable all together.
  25. Ya, I predrill but maybe I just got a bad batch when I snapped 3 in the same back frame. I will try the wax thing ... any kind in particular or Johnson's paste or renaissance good enough?
  26. Pre drilling is a must! You could try to find higher quality screws, but if you pre drill may not be necessary.
  27. The braided wire and d-rings are what I use. I predrill for the screws using a vix bit. Depending on the wood I also coat the screw with bees wax to lubricate the screw.
