  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. nope, hand screwing ... I think the last batch of screws I had would of snapped themselves if they saw a drill coming at them 🙂
  4. cool, I will have to go check it out and see
  5. 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 🤣
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. not sure if this goes here ... I am looking for better picture hanging equipment than the cheap stuff from HD. I have snapped like 4-5 screws off in the back of the boards I am trying to hang, it is quite annoying. So I was thinking something like this wire: https://www.amazon.com/Picture-Hanging-100-Feet-Braided-Supports/dp/B082XXKVMF/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=picture+hanging+wire&qid=1627342256&sr=8-5 I like these type of D ring hooks: https://www.amazon.com/Ring-Picture-Hangers-Screws-Solutions/dp/B019QX7CY8/ref=pd_bxgy_img_1/147-4197979-2832646?pd_rd_w=JXAqI&pf_rd_p=c64372fa-c41c-422e-990d-9e034f73989b&pf_rd_r=3B4JYBQWXHTB8RRYB1QX&pd_rd_r=92700f45-9147-4abc-acaa-89d93119248d&pd_rd_wg=4ahXp&pd_rd_i=B019QX7CY8&psc=1 However the screws are what get me ... is there screws this size that are actually good? Or are they so small no one cares to make good screws and I am stuck with garbage? thoughts?
  9. Ok was thinking that … but it looks like a 6/4 to 8/4 top. That’s a hell of a round over bit. Yes, take small passes and work your way up but still a beast. Assuming like a 1” round over bit or so.
  10. so just came across this … it got me thinking about how to make that rounded bottom. Am I over thinking it? Is it just a big round over bit on the bottom? #2… how would you cut a 10* bevel on a rounded edges? been a learning morning so far trying to figure these out haha.
  11. oh interesting ... I will take a look at that and see about the whole frosting thing ..
  12. Yes that came out looking amazing! problem is I already have the clear glass 😞 Next version will definitely have some glass like that ooooh I forgot about this one ... watched it back in the day though. yes that is great looking by itself
  13. This is what I am going back and forth in my head about ... True, just trying to add a little something else to it ... maybe the glass feature will do that all on its own? thanks Coop!
  14. So, yes they are the thing strips you see ... here are some better shots: The plan was to have the actual lines line up across the top. In the pic above if you followed the lines, all but 2 have a continuation across the glass, and those 2 I was just tired and for some reason they were fighting me so I gave up for the moment haha. Here is how deep I was originally planning on going, about 1/4" I will have to give that some thought ... so are you saying like wrap the outside in maple on the edge? Or like a 1/4 deep rectangle around the edge or somewhere in the middle'ish? I was thinking the same thing ... and that is why I was going with the 1/4 deep grooves to start with at least. glad to see I was thinking about it correctly for once 🙂
  15. well got a new piece I am going to be working on ... a Walnut/Maple hallway table. I have seen so many of these done and tons of variations over the plane look. So I took a stab at making this one be a little different as well. Going to have a glass middle ... with maple accents cut through out the top. The legs do have a taper on them, just hard to see in the video. 2 main questions starting off 1) what do yall think of the maple accents, should they go all the way through the top or is 1/4 deep like they are fine? Yes, you will see them not all the way through on the sides the way it is now ... which is why I am curious how that should be handled and if it would look stupid not going all the way through. 2) The glass will sit flush on the top, do the edges need a 1/32 or so gap from the wood to help with movement? Any other thoughts on this one?
