    Tour

    Thanks! It does get very dark where I'm at.. It's pretty cool to be able to see the satellites with the naked eye! That's about as close as I get to astronomy.. As for the specs of dust, I'll work on that
  2. Fantastic work Chet! I really enjoyed this build!

    I'm looking forward to it as well Mick! I've seen your shop here and it is indeed a nice shop!

    Tour

    So many changes to the new shop that I thought I'd drop a shop tour mid year.. I will do another at the end of the year because there's a lot more changes coming..
  5. Some use a rare earth magnet and swear by it.
  6. There are time when I'll use one. In the end, if the piece you're cutting is so warped that you feel you need 2, I'd be finding a different method to make the cut.
  7. I use a magnet stop block all the time when I need to make multiple strips..
  8. Any piece is worth what the market will bear. If people are buying them then, he's hit the right market at the right price.
  9. I think that's the shop we went to???? I could see them doing that, they were great! That's just pure awesome Chet! Super happy to see how that all went!
  10. Super stunning Mick! Great execution and I love the choice of pulls!

    Tail vise - OMG

    Agreed.. The LV tail vise listed by Bob doesn't require any major modifications! Also, HNT Gordon makes one that I like a bit better then the LV one that also doesn't require any major modifications. I've installed both and they work fine. I still prefer my BC one but, those two are certainly fine choices@. Both are pretty simple installs!

    Wood Move - Day 3

    Nice! I'll be doing some of that vertical space in my old shop as well. I really only left enough lumber storage in the new shop for the "current project" Like you, my intent is to let the lumber yard store my material until I need it..
  13. It's not a complicated jig.. Just takes a minute to explain if it's not understood.. Pretty much just like everything in life.
  14. They came off of Amazon. Someone had mentioned another source but, for the life of me, I can't recall what it was.. https://www.amazon.com/Precision-Fixtures-Durable-Material-Bandsaws/dp/B07GBGSG1Y/ref=asc_df_B07GBGSG1Y/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309807921328&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14720247682869342515&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9021400&hvtargid=pla-569775042655&psc=1
  15. Pretty quick and simple to make. There's quite a few videos out there on making them, this is just my take..
  16. I will second Bmac's response.. Probably the most comfortable chair in my house. The difference is continuing to carve and shape until it's right.
  17. Yep.. I don't normally use ARS on lighter woods, I'll go strait to the WB
  18. I don't.. Just about anytime I shoot WB finish I preraise the grain. Hmm.. I think that's something else missing from my videos..
  19. Best way to practice, especially with WB finish, is to set up a large piece of cardboard, fill the can with water, and shoot. You'll find that it's extremely easy and you'll catch on quick. Can or 2 of water and you'll have the confidence to toss some finish in the cup and go after it. Heavy coats are fine on horizontal surfaces but, keep them light on vertical surfaces. Don't let the milky haze throw you off. It will dry completely clear.
  20. I'm not in the shop so, don't want to lie to you but, it's the tip that came on my Fujie Q4. You can use a smaller tip because it's a very thin material. For the record, I use General Finishes Hight Performance.
  21. I've used WB on lots of furniture pieces and it looks and feels extremely good. Sounds to me like you need to run some tests for yourself which will answer some of your questions. I nearly always spray it.
  22. The only way it would take "more steps" is if you pre-raise the grain and then sand it back which only takes a few minutes. Depending on my shop conditions and how heavy of a coat I applied, I'm usually shooting the next coat within 30 to 40 minutes. So, the drying time really does make a huge difference. The biggest advantage to me is the low VOCs and the fact that I don't have to leave a project in the shop for several days to off gas. I can literally bring it in the house the same day that I apply the finish.
  23. Nice work Joshua, welcome to the forums!
