    Hi my name is priscilla, and I am a highschool student in a woodworking class and I am interested in making an iPhone case like the one you made and I was wondering if you can show me what cutter you used to make the pocket. Thank you

    Hello Dominick, I had a question for a fellow furniture builder.

    I started a thread in the tools section about forstner bits, and a fellow there gave me a good recommendation. But I'm not sure my budget can handle that one at this time. Do you have any favorites under $40?

    I'm currently using this one http://www.lowes.com/pd_306157-70-PC1021_0__?productId=3032143&Ntt=forstner+bit&pl=1 ¤tURL=%3FNtt%3Dforstner%2Bbit%26page%3D1&facetInfo =

    And I hate it. I hit a knot in some walnut, and I thought the wood was going to burst into flames. It took me about five minutes to drill one hole 2" deep.

    I'm sure the bit that was suggested is a great one, but I'm on a tight budget. have you found any bargain winners?

    You mentioned you use Veritas log tenon cutters. Do you used the tapered 60 degree cutters or the traditional ones?

    I ask...because I like the tapered look....without a counter sink. ....and was wondering if the tapered cutters work as well as all the reviews ive read on the Veritas traditional one blade cutters??

    Thanks for your time..... Kyle

    Just check't out your products Dominick..VERY NICE!! Been trying to get hubby to build me some nice chairs for the patio but they'd be so heavy to move around...LOL!! He'll do that in the spring tho so he says...fishing kinda takes over his brain. Good to meet a "local" here

    hey Dominick since I know you make rustic furniture I figured this question would be best to ask you. Is there an easy way to remove the bark off of cedar I'm probably doing it the worst and slowest way that there is I'm scraping it with a razor blade and its taking for ever. Probably not the brightest idea I've ever had. btw the way the log is only bout ten inches long bout 6 inches in diameter

    Hey I just wanted to let you know that 2 more of the walnut boards are spalted, one is completely spalted. 13' L x 9"w x 2"thick. Will be some time before we use it, need to practice on some "throw away" stock first to get the project down. Looking at music boxes, maybe pic frames, or a table topped with it.

    Hey Dominick,
    Just ran across a post of yours that mentioned you were in WL. I live just down the road in McHenry and actually own a business in WL. Setting up a woodshop in the basement of my business in WL. Do you know the old Marquise banquet hall on E. Wonder Lake Rd? Thats where the new little wood working shop is being built. Anyway, just thought I would say hey.

    Hi Dominick, FYI, oil modoified polyurethans such as helmsmans spar urethane, are different chemistry than your older phenolic types or even older hard resin/oil types. Spar urethanes are just modified by mol/mol ratios of Acrylic polyol to urethane to give more [in this case] flexibility to use on spar type applications. This does not make them "slow" dryers, as you can tell from the application peramiters, you can "recoat" in 4 hours. This would never be true of a phenolic/oil blend. People get confused with "spar" designations as to having to be a high oil or high phenolic content to inable high plasticity and therefore requireing very long drying properties. urethanes do not have to work in this manner [though they could be made to do so] there is no reason for them to do so, if the plastcization can be had by other means. Hope this helps and pass it on to Tom, he can use it just like the directions say to use it. 4 hour recoat.
