  1. Tail vise in, legs milled. Now it’s a router party. Been working away a couple of hours a night. I’m glued up! We will have a functioning tail vise this weekend. The flush trim bit worked just like the video (and half of the internet) said it would. Heya, Dog hole strip done, dovetails cut. I have a quick question. I am about to rout the pins. I am using a 1/2” diameter by 1” pattern bit. Can I REALLY dig that thing in all the way against the little 1/4” ledge the bearing is supposed to ride on? Every article I have found says go for it, but take it slow. I have always routed in 1/8” passes, and I am afraid I will have to dip into my baby’s stash of diapers plowing a full 1 inch bit into it. Unless you all tell me it’s ok.

  4. If you can’t stand the aluminum knobs, you’re welcome to come over and use my lathe.
  5. Hey all, I have a coworker who likes to restore furniture. She recently acquired a 1930s radio cabinet with this type of hinge, but one of them is broken. Have any of you seen this, and if so, what type of hinge is this, and where can she get another one? This is a top down view, the door opens out normally. Thanks!
  6. Got the hole patched and scorched over an 8th of an inch. Everything works! In a related note, my benchcrafted kit didn’t include the flange bolts for the tail vise. I emailed them, and the sent them out that day. Ripped another piece of maple for the dog hole strip and front laminate. I am going with round dogs. Feel free to rap on that.
  7. I’m just glad you’re ok. I would agree to just make the top narrower and cut off the damaged bits.
  8. Thanks fellas. I keep going back to that same Home Depot hoping to score again. I think the whole board was like 30 bucks.
  9. This is the beauty of our craft. If we want something shorter or taller, we just make it that way. Ain’t it grand?
  10. I built this shelf out of off the rack red oak a few years ago. I saw all this curl in the back of the pile and bought the whole board. Used Marc’s recipe for popping the grain. I think it turned out well. I have no beef with red oak.
  11. Hit a snag....the hole I drilled is slightly off. I am using the barrel nuts from BC, and I basically need to scoot the hole over about 1/4.” I see two options: 1) chisel out the section to the right and put the barrel but in there( it’s the underside of the bench, and it doesn’t bother me) 2) plug the hole and drill a new one. Thoughts?
