  1. About 10 years or so ago, I was fortunate enough to purchase a set of Kiyohisa slicks from the maker, Watanabe Kiyoe, through So Yamashita (Japan-Tool.com). These have been incredible chisels and a joy to use when building furniture. As much art as tool. Part of the motivation for this thread comes from the completion of the underbench cabinet. Here are the Kiyohisa slicks in a drawer (beginnings of fitting tools into the drawers) ... Of course, over the years, I wished I have been able to order a set of Kiyohisa oire nomi (bench chisels). Not only were these very expensive sev

  3. Been gonna clean up this mess since I bought my Sawstop my old cutoff cart wouldn't fit (the PM66 sat higher) so I gave it to the guy that bought the saw. Anyways after 4 years of tripping over the crap I decided today was the day. Not gonna lie this was not a fun glue up but got it done. Glad I went with TBIII Also cut out the base for my new shooting board Hopefully I can finish both up tomorrow I also need to do the burn in on my new pellet smoker.

  4. Ok...so I am not sure this is worthy of a Project Journal, but I have decided to try the WW kitchen helper for my first project and add a thread. If there is a better location to post this thread please let me know! I have watched the WW video a few times and have printed out all of my plans to get started. I have also been talked into doing a small doll bench for the niece so we will see how that goes. I started with 4/4 cherry for the kitchen helper and 4/4 poplar for the bench with target end dimensions of 3/4-inch. Not too worried as long as I get all of the parts dimensional

  5. This won't blend the variation from different trees, but a lye treatment will turn cherry from fresh cut salmon pink to deep brick red in seconds. Over a few weeks, the red mellows to the dark reddish-brown typical of aged cherry. If I were trying to blend mis-matched shades, I might use the lye first, then follow it with the danish oil @RichardA mentioned.

  7. I"ll be unloading this load of wood i got yesterday. Snagged a bunch of prime cherry that is at least 90% heart 1 face for the cabinets i'm making. This board is about 1 foot wide.... I also bought some 1 com cherry just to see what it was like. Price was a massive $2.50 / BF quality is better than the Select and better i've seen at some yards. I think I'm going to do 1 com from now on. The price makes it east to buy some extra to account for the knots but the character of the wood is awesome. For cabinets that I'll be using narrow pieces on the prime st

  11. I have once or twice used Watco's Cherry Danish Oil to balance the colors. It won't darken sap wood much, but will even out the darker wood, and shorten the darkening time.

  14. Dado's 1/4" deep on the 3/4" BB and 1/8" deep on the 1/2" I went with a Pit Boss Pro Series 4.2. I have used my propane Masterbuilt vertical for about 5 years but I can't keep it from getting to hot and having to prop the door open with a paper clip . This one got fairly good reviews so I'm hopeful.

  22. As others have correctly said, cherry definitely darkens over time. Walnut lightens. Mesquite darkens ate the same rate as cherry. Don't ask me how I know. If you want the freshly surfaced color of cherry without the darkening, consider using alder as an alternative. It does not darken, but may get a little lighter.

  23. Keep it simple - get some water based poly and spray it. General finishes high performance or Old Masters poly are both easy to spray.
