    I found this video on the Wooden Boat forum and it relates to us here in general woodworking with structural adhesives. sometimes we need to go beyond the pocket screws and wood glue in joinery. the video is 30 minutes long, but worth watching when you find the time. it is just for information...

    Here's a few pictures of the blank I'm working on now. As you can see, it's got a bit of a crack and a void in it. I had a go filling this with 2 part epoxy-resin. Thing is, it was my first time using the stuff so I don't think I got it quite right, though I'm intending to add the finishing...

    Perhaps the one thing, as woodworkers, we all make is.........mistakes--especially this relative beginner. I have several lengths of 1 X 3 wood (by 3/4" thickness) with a hole drilled near, but off its mark near the center of this (actual, as opposed to nominal) 2.5" width. The hole is drilled...

    Hi - I have zero woodworking experience and would appreciate any suggestions on how to deal with the large cracks in an old farm table I just purchased. http://oi46.tinypic.com/21aihvm.jpg I'd like to repair the cracks, especially as they seem fragile. I guess can live with the slight warping...

    I'm going to use the wood sanding dust to make a filler on a new white pine floor to fill the gaps and imperfections in the wood. Everything I have read online about how to do this mentions to mix the fine dust with my finish, but I haven't seen any specific type or brands of finish (I want to...
