  1. I do Robs micro bevel with the 1000 grit diamond stone, then add the additional tertiary bevel on top of that with my 12000 grit shapton. Works well for me, my irons and chisels are way sharper than I ever got them with my previous sharpening systems. What are you using for stones? Are they good and flat? How much of Robs system are you using when you sharpen?
  2. How in the world did you make that? That is incredible!
  3. Well, if you decide you dont actually want them, send them up my direction. Nice tools, if I ever jump into the Green pool, that router and the track saw will be the first things I buy.
  4. I really like the look of your cabinet. The second row of drawers, and the side cubbies look really cool.
  5. I did a double blind tenon to attach mine. With lag screws through the upper rail. Strong as an ox but the double tenon was a serious pain. If I were to do it over again id just do a single tenon.
  6. I have a Craftsman no. 4 and no. 7. The 4 is pretty lightweight and is a bugger to keep set how I want it. Blades really thin. It gets the job done when the blade is sharp, but not the funnest plane to use. The 7 seems to be the same plane pretty much, just bigger. I have better luck using it for whatever reason.
  7. Looks awesome, you are cruising right through this project. Are you planning to do a different species for the chop and deadman, or will they be the same as what you have used on the rest of the bench?
  8. Yeah they are good runners for the most part. Im glad youve had good luck with it.
  9. Chairs looking great. Nice clean joints on all those angles. You have to print to a Ricoh C6502? Sorry about that. Just kidding, im a Ricoh technician.
  10. Looks great dude. That curly cherry is beautiful. What did you finish it with?
  11. Sweet, i look forward to following. Do you square the mortises, or round the tenons?
  12. I found a promo code for 20% off for Fine Woodworking.com, but couldnt find where to enter the code for purchasing the Unlimited membership.
  13. Thanks for the post Chip. I am planning to purchase a mortiser with my refund check. I have been looking at the LV mortise chisels that you bought as well. Im glad they are a good item, and Ill be sure to pick them up. Question to you guys, what do you use to touch up the inner cone (I dont know how else to refer to it) of the chisel after you hone the outer surfaces?
  14. I have a smaller shop, 12'x20' give or take, and 8' ceilings, so I dont need a heck of a lot of lighting. I use four 2' long LED bars from HD. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Lithonia-Lighting-2-8-ft-34-Watt-White-Integrated-LED-Shop-Light-SHLP-36IN-40K-80CRI-DNA-M12/301158095 Price on the website is more than Ive seem them priced at, they were on clearance a month or so ago, $12 each or so. They put off a ton of light and dont seem to use any power at all. Im sold on LED lights.
  15. Lamp looks awesome. Ive been wanting to make myself a kumiko lamp much like yours. The kumiko bug bites pretty hard. I like using it in the lids of my small boxes now. Ive gone so far as making a dedicated table saw sled for cutting the little half laps. Not sure if anyone around here follows Matt Kenney, but im pretty sure kumiko is all he makes anymore.
