For my first big project I’ve decided to make myself a desk... and by make myself a desk, I mean buying two ikea drawer units and buying a live edge slab to finish myself and put on top to make myself a desk. Note: the room will be...

    Hello everyone! I've been reading this forum for a couple of years now, but hadn't signed up. Recently, though, the bug finally bit me and I decided to go off the deep end into woodworking (my wife says I do that too often with hobbies). I've done quite a bit of home remodeling and have done...

    Hi There, I'm hoping someone can shed light on what type of bounding agent to use for a project. I am building a large walnut river table 11' x 4' x 2.5' which will require around around 16 gallons. I'm not sure what to pour such a large area with. I'd like to be able to machine and glass...

    People, I am trying to find a way to glue these two pieces of wood together to make a small table. But as you can see the bottom log is holed from its top (it used to be for small candles). I am not experienced in wood working and I am hoping not to cut big parts of the log (if possible)...

    I am writing a book about a fictional story that takes place in New Orleans Louisiana, and I need help with a scene that takes place at the Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, which is an iconic building in a Gothic cathedral style, built in 1918 on the campus of Loyola University on St. Charles...

    Hi I am currently working on building a circus see-saw (also called a teeterboard, the thing acrobats jump on the end of to launch each other into the air), for a local circus with a few other guys. The common wood used is Vic ash, which we intend to use. Someone has suggested using a smaller...

    I just picked up a dewalt compact fixed router from lowes earlier this week for $139, but I keep second guessing because now if I want to buy a plunge base that will cost me another $60. Should I return the dewalt compact 1.25 hp and just get a Bosch 2.25 combo for $220? or get a hatachi combo...

    Hello. I acquired a rather long piece of walnut that I cut into two pieces. One piece is 6 feet (and I plan to make a coffee table out of it). The other piece is 4 feet, and the one I'm currently working on. I've planed the wood and sanded it to 220 on both sides. I've decided to keep most of...

    Please advise: What would be a good machine or tool to drill straight down the end grain of a log? I want to drill a 1 3/4'' or 2''hole approximately 45cm directly into the end of a log (I will be drilling into Japanese Larch, approximately 6'' diameter, 65cm long). I have recently bought an...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post so bear with me. I caught the woodworking bug when my fiance decided to task me with one of the thousand "must-haves" she came across on pinterest. It was a wooden disk endtable with iron piping for the legs.. I have always been a handy man, I grew up working...

    I'm new to woodworking and I'm trying to get a handle on what tools work best. I inherited a handful of saws and power tools from my father which I've used for working around the house but never for creative woodworking. Right now I'm building up my skills on some of the starter projects in Nick...

    I'm new-ish to woodworking, and I'm looking to make a purchase. I already have a good combination miter saw, and a router with a stand. I'm thinking about buying a table saw or a band saw, or both -- a cheaper version of one and a nicer of the other. Looking around, it seems like the advantage...

    I am going to build a bathroom four-post table, and was looking at a website explaining how to cut the drawer opening here. This will reduce the height of that board by two widths of the saw. My question: Should I cut the same kerfs from the perpendicular boards to keep them the same height...
