  1. Today
  2. Looking forward to it.
  3. I pulled a number of bagged rough turnings off the shelf that had been drying between 9 and 12 months and put them in my inventory to be finished. One of them is a large tiger maple platter from Rickys scraps that should be spectacular when done.
  4. In the right hands.... Use a text description and post a photo of just the handles.

    They think these are weapons.
  10. That 300 bdft of tiger sure will look good in my pile . Pictures to come.
  11. Have room for a french cleat? I've hung a couple 100 lb mirrors in the last week with them.
  12. Could this be a Tiger Hard Maple?
  13. I live where TP abounds and Cherry was traditionally rare. I suspect that is a holdover from transportation costs of long ago.
  14. Tulip poplar makes a lot more sense than birch. I've heard tulip poplar called poor man's cherry multiple times. I found it entertaining mostly because the price for cherry wasn't that much different.
  15. Mine is old, and too large since I will have the roubo. It’s also not really flat anymore.
  16. It's not a bad idea but with woodslicer the kerf loss is MUCH less than compared to a table saw. After clean up you'll loose maybe 1/16". I used to resaw on a table saw with a 7 1/4" blade, and it works well but there is still some cleanup that is needed and the kerf is wider. This matters when the sawdust the wood creates could possibly be measured in dollars not cents, or fractions of a cent. I'd say tune up the band saw and run test pieces before the real deal.
  17. I recently found these while helping my daughter move from on apartment to another. They come in 1/4” as well. It’s like a typical toggle bolt but the wing nut stays in place and the bolt can be removed and re-inserted. I’ll never use a plain toggle bolt again.
  18. We moved a 4000 lb. tank across a yard to concrete using this method. Due to the fact that the base was soil, the bottom pipes were 2” dia. . Worked great.
  19. Yeah that's a really good point that I hadn't even thought about Ross, but you know that will happen LOL. It will be dyed black so if I paint a couple screws and inset them into the wood they will blend in. The most important thing is that it stays on the wall Hmm food for thought Thanks Chet!!
  20. The green stain on the lower part of this piece strongly suggests that it is tulip poplar / Liriodendron tulipifera
  21. Can you imagine what kind of electronic device they will have in their hands when that time comes? But dad ......!

    Walrus Oil

    I think that was cool. I agree, thanks Dave for giving us your professional advice. I will check out your website and your products.
  23. I think I would tend to do something like Ross mentions. I would want it pretty well secured just in case. It sounds like you want the option of removing it from the wall down the road. What about a horizontal sliding dovetail or even two. If you had the dovetail stand away from the wall you could end up with the appearance of the rack floating in the air.
