  1. I've been using the same 1 x 6's for raised beds in my garden for ten years now. Doesn't rot very well.
  2. Another Logan user here. The ease of use and speed makes it much better than the other methods I've used.
  3. This little piggy bank is made from a piece if firewood.
  4. Again, glue is all that is needed. I used a drill to hog out the mortice and cleaned it up with a chisel. I forget how long the tenon is but it did not go all the way through.
  5. You can download the plan for a Jakes Chair free. It was designed for large people and to get in and out of easily. I've built a few of these and this last one about five years ago with cedar. I got tired of the dull grey color of aging and painted it Teal. Really brightens up the neighborhood.
  6. I don't get the problem here. As stated, edge glue your three boards of any thickness and crosscut 1 7/8 pieces and stand on edge.
  7. I've only used this wood a few times and I've always used TBII without wiping down with acetone. I've never had a failure. This cocobolo and sycamore frame is over 15 years old.
  8. Yes. If it's a box bottom, flock the ply or wood before the final assembly. Looks at the green flocking in the first box. It was the first time I tried it and spread the glue after assembly and then flocked. It's not as neatly done.
  9. Lee Valley has a small kit that works well. http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=44669&cat=1,250,43298,43300,44669
  10. I have this system from Lee Valley. It contains metric and US bushings. A bit cheaper than the others. http://www.leevalley.com/US/Wood/page.aspx?p=32251&cat=1,180,42311
  11. The third piece looks like Ziricote to me.
  12. Mike, No wash coats. I've never had a problem with cherry blotching.
  13. These cherry bookcases are made with cherry and cherry ply. I like to give cherry a coat of Watco Cherry Danish Oil which darkens and reddens both the solid and the ply fairly evenly followed by a few coats of Waterlox. This combo ages very well. The backs are luan ply and the color varies from the cherry.
