  1. Not sure if anyone is planning to pre-order the Shaper Origin (I just did). If you do, here's my referral link, which earns each of us $100. To encourage people using my link, I'm willing to give anyone who uses it $50 of mine. Just send me an email after using it and I'll happily send $50. Thanks!
  2. I got a Vac - still looking for systainers. Thanks.
  3. Where are you located? How much do you want?
  4. The ideal one I am looking for is a CT 26, but i'm open to other things. What do you have?
  5. Hi All, Looking to buy a festool dust extractor. I also need a SYS4 and SYS3 (T-Loc style). Let me know if you have one to sell. Thanks!
  6. I got a 10% off any order of $300 or more in WOOD magazine. I will not be using it. First person who sends a PM gets it. Thanks.
  7. Well - here's the final glue-up right off the drum sander with some mineral spirits on it. I think It'll work out just fine. Wish me luck!
  8. Hey guys, thanks for the comments. I've done lots of end grain boards. I always finish using diluted salad bowl finish. I've used white oak in end grain boards before - it's actually not that porous due to the pores being full of tyloses. I've had both walnut and cherry that soaked up finish much more readily than white oak. I'd never use it for long-grain boards. I'll give the glue-up a shot as I have planned. Thanks!
  9. Hey all - so I decided to try an endgrain board out of all white oak. I did the first glue-up then cut it into strips. I haven't yet done the second glue-up. Do you guys think the design below (with the side strips going the opposite way) will lead to movement issues? I mean it's all end-grain facing up, so it's not as bad as gluing up two bords at 90 degrees to each other, but I'm wondering if even in this case it will lead to problems. Thanks for the advice!
  10. For sale is a brand new Delta Dado Stack. It’s a nice set. I bought it and never ended up using it (I already had a nice Freud set). Asking $90 + actual shipping charges from upstate NY. Thanks!
  11. I'm looking to buy a simple electric branding iron with a "Handcrafted by" (plus my name). Anyone have any experience? Are they easy to use? Recommended place to get it? Thanks!
  12. I got this email and decided to take them up on it. I think the link should work for anyone who tries it. Three years (7 issues per year) of WOOD magazine for $24 + $4 shipping, plus two shop jig issues as well.
  13. So I wanted to make an easy-to-construct end grain board. I decided to use a 7" wide peice of maple in it's full width to make less cuts. When I exposed the end grain, this is what I found. I haven't decided yet if I love it or hate it, but it's definitely one or the other! Thoughts? Is it just maple starting to spalt?
  14. This is the vise (not mine, a pic of the same model I found online). it was second-hand, so I have no instructions.
