  1. I will store my new branding iron in one of my tool drawers but it seems like an item the could get banged or nicked up so today I built a box out of some leftover poplar I had. I used box joints and a sliding top. When I cut the top, I screwed up my measurement by and inch and because I was using scraps for the project I didn't have another piece that would work so I added a piece of wenge on the end as a pull. I did a couple of coats of blonde de-waxed shellac that I had a small amount of left in the jar. The wenge is rounded on the end, then I coved the top with a ra

  2. I received this branding iron for Christmas from my daughter and family. My granddaughter came up with the design including designing the font itself. It takes about ten minutes to warm up, I tried it after five minutes but it wasn't hot enough at that point. It does take a little trial and error to get the touch down. Here is what I learned at least with this one, other company's branding irons may be different. You don't have to press hard, you just need to apply enough pressure to hold it in place, to much pressure and you don't get a crisp image. If I tried to hold it

  3. Made quite a bit of progress on the chairs yesterday. Didn’t have any daycare for our youngest daughter so I took the day off work. Thank goodness for the tv in the shop! Got to work staining the remaining chairs and had one left to prep for stain. It took about 35-40 per chair to stain. Lots of corners to get into. All the chairs stained. You can see my little helper camped out in the folding chair 🙂 Decided to get the finish gun out and went completely through it. Really don’t think it was necessary but figured it wouldn’t hurt. When I got that far I figured I mig

  10. Since I have only been working 3 days a week, every other week, a friend told me I shouldn’t have trouble finding something to do for the other 6 days a month. Nothing planned butI do have a stack of various pieces of nice lumber that I got from @Spankythat needs to be made into something(s). Also need to build another purple Martin house before they return in late February.

  11. @Coop congratulations my friend! I’m sure it will be quite a change for you but I’m sure you will manage! Any shop projects lined up to fill the itch to work?

  12. For drawers like this I like to use hardboard insert's. They are cheap and easy to reconfigure or remake if things change. here is one example

  15. Just to close the loop on this I received an email from Harvey late last evening and they apologized profusely. They said they had been "swamped from the holiday and playing catch up" the replacement parts are in the mail and they provided tracking info. So all is good.

  16. Thanks Coop.. There will always be lurkers and that's ok. They miss some of the forum sections that the members see but, they're welcome to lurk. Also, some of those "guests" are various bots and things cruising through the net collecting data. This happens will all sites like this one.

  17. My wife was snoring so I decided to come out to the shop to see what was going on here. I clicked on “online users” and there were 2 members and 58 guests. I guess you can say that I really was bored to have counted them all. Guests, apparently some of you are woodworkers or potential or you wouldn’t be lurking. We would all like to hear what you have to offer, as insignificant as you may seem it to be. Lordy knows we don’t know it all. Become a welcome member, no selfies required! 😀 just saying as a member myself.

  19. I do also run a gravity feed gun. Honestly it’s a harbor freight special. Was like $30 or something like that. It doesn’t work to bad for what it is. Have been looking to get into a Greco airless sprayer at some point. Haha! Her mom actually got home just in time to let me take a break from the daddy day care to allow me to get the Christmas lights off the house. Was an abnormally warm day here so didn’t want to pass up the opportunity. Hit 38 for a high! Today is a different story about 3” of snow so far which means I get to get out of bed at 4am.

  21. A project with a lot of tight corners is the reason decided to add the smaller gravity feed gun to my set up.

  25. Yes, I cut for that flooring mill and cut for a big lumber yard in Cookeville that ships lumber all move the world. Ole Spanky and I are going to Cookeville in the morning with a load of 4/4 2C & Better White Oak. I’m like you’re puppy whoever has the most treats in their pocket.😀

  27. I think that has a lot to do with it. If they are in a area where things are limited as to what percent of your work force can be there at any given time, things are bound to go slow. Patience is definitely a virtue these days.

  30. Hey folks just wanted to follow up on this one. As stated in my first post I was mistakenly sent the metric version of the miter gauge and as of today nearly a month later it has still not been corrected. I am using the gauge and my review still stands but thought all should know the customer services has hit a bit of a road bump at least for me.

  31. That's pretty similar to mine. Mine seems "slow" to warm up as well. I really should break mine out more often!

  34. Yeah she does but I probably have the most frugal wife of anyone. The builders are building us big ass (by our standards) closets, each twice the size of the one we use to share. My son took a look see yesterday and told his mom that she will have to go clothes shopping everyday for the next two months so it won’t look so bare. Yes sir, logs would be appreciated before she takes him up on her suggestions.

  38. Coop, I hope to have a big white oak burl bowl to show you soon. I was hoping to have a table made out of my tiger hard maple to show you too. But I think the woodworker ran off with my tiger hard maple lumber that was around a year ago. I don't have the lumber or the table.
