  1. If you are the one building the back leg, could you make a through tenon on the top and a matching hole in the center portion in the back? Similar to what is shown on this stool
  2. Another way would be to start with a square piece of wood, hold it in place, then mark the angle directly onto the wood. Simple matter then of cutting it out. Or, make it purposely oversize, put in place, and use a flush cut bit in a router to make it flush. Like C Shaffer, not paying for a sub to see the pic. Sorry.
  3. Maybe one of these will help. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/12254?msg=welcome_stranger http://www.evenfallstudios.com/woodworks_library/woodworks_library.html#Furniture and Design and then there's a few search engines for old books http://archive.org/search.php?query= http://www.gutenberg.org/
  4. If you would like more of an antique look... http://www.antique-hardware.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=full+mortise+lock or maybe...http://www.kennedyhardware.com/search.php?mode=search&page=1 possibly...http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/jewelry-box-lock-set.html
  5. Maybe something like this? http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/anbrwrse1ovh.html Pretty much everything else I can find has an extra step somewhere.
  6. Doomwolf, I believe what woodbutcher74 is referring to is called a quaker lock. They look like they are pretty easy to make (I say that only because I haven't tried). Google images will give you many ideas as to how they work. HTH.
  7. Marc said "I believe this to be an issue only with older posts. The links are there but the hyperlink is busted so it defaults to the page link. The original poster or a mod can go in and copy/paste the link into place to fix it." Even when I click on your "The Wood Whisperer Guild" link in your signature line of your response to me, it takes me to the top of this page. I make no claim as to understanding how all of this internet voodoo stuff works, so I believe you that the links are there. I'll just give it some time and maybe it will all get sorted out. Thanks for the response.
  8. As long as the gardening wife, the cooking wife, and the bedroom wife don't meet, all will be well!
  9. I'm having a similar issue, only that it takes me back to the top of the page I am on. Windows 7 Professional and Firefox here.
  10. Unfortunately, there are laws preventing me from answering this
  11. Just got a pre-made shed that is being multi used for feed storage, gardening (wife) and lawn stuff (shovels, rakes, mower, etc). The shop right now is the garage and it still needs a bit of organizing to really function well. Maybe one day.....
  12. from Virginia Tech http://sbio.vt.edu/for-the-community/extension/solar-kiln/index.html They have a link on there for plans for a solar kiln.
  13. I don't know about the percentages, but I beleive the real question becomes this. At $995, 60% is $597. Is $597 going to cover your costs and give you a fair price for your labor? If not, maybe this is not the route to go.
  14. A few possibilites: http://www.aliexpress.com/price/lift-top-coffee-table-hinges_price.html http://www.richelieu.com/us/en/category/hinges-slides-and-opening-systems/opening-systems/vertical-opening-systems/parallel-lift-up-door/1037045 http://www.hardwaresource.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=4331 http://selbyhardware.thomasnet.com/item/all-categories/cam-action-lift-up-stay/st2215-8?&plpver=10&origin=keyword&filter=&by=prod These may not be exactly what was pictured, but they may work.
  15. I think this is what they are talking about. http://us.cricut.com/home/# I could be wrong.
  16. I agree ponderingturtle, nginearing in english has its issues (especailly the pound) I had to deal with both imperial and metric in school. My problem, like so many have expressed, is that I was raised with imperial, so I can't very easily visualize metric. I can convert to get imperial so i have an idea of size, but it doesn't come readily to mind without that. And, like others, I remember when the US was going to convert to metric as well. Guess I just dated myself a little there.
  17. Like most here, TB II or III depending.
  18. I'm not a scientist, but I do have to deal with nitty gritty small details in my work. I agree with Gilgaron in that if my fingers can't tell the difference, it's the right size. I do this for fun, so I don't want to worry about if I'm within 10 thou. Just my opinion though, so take it for what it's worth.
  19. Maybe something like this? http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/12254?msg=welcome_stranger (hope this works anyway)
  20. I agree with most here.....Titebond II or III depending.
  21. I'm making no guarantees to anything on this, but here is a possible location to get plans. Swivel bar stool: http://www.woodprojects.com/?s=bar+stool Another possibility would be to find a style or look you like and design your own. I'm betting the members here would be able to answer any questions you come up with.
  22. Being a newbie, this is a GREAT topic. Unfortunately, I haven't learned anything that hasn't been covered, so I can't add anything myself. However, I can cretainly learn from the many great people here, and ultimately, that's what forums like this are all about. Thanks vinnyjojo for starting this.
  23. Must be nice for a lot of you guys. I can honestly say I have never been into either a Woodcraft or a Rockler. Where I am the closest Woodcraft is 8 hours 42 minutes away and Rockler is 8 hours and 2 minutes away (according to google maps). Someone mentioned Harbor Freight (4 minutes away). I know the quality on some stuff there is good and some bad. There are a couple possibilities that are 10 minutes or less from my house where I can get wood and a few other things. In cases like this, the internet is your friend.
  24. The look of shock and surprise not only on my face, but on my wife's when something actually turns out the way it was planned.
