    I tried to find a nook and corner in the forum as I just joined and I know this is frowned upon on Facebook woodworking forums but I can’t find anyone to help me identify a few species I’ve been working with and on. Bay Area CA slabs. Thanks in advance!

    Hi and thank you in advance for any ideas. My mom has had this 3 shelf live edge wood piece for some years now and only uses it with 2 of the 3 shelves. Now she wants me to use the 3 planks to make a coffee or smaller dining table. I don’t know what type of wood it is and am curious. It’s...

    I need help identifying this wood lathe I got from my work, I've seen some similar ones from searching old lathes on google but I think it might be a Craftsman lathe. I know it's mostly home made as far as the stand goes but I'm trying to find parts for it.

    One of the tools I inherited recently is a bit of a mystery to me. It has a sanding bar across the bottom but no overhead assembly. I think it looks like a kind of drum sander but I don’t know how even pressure could be applied across a piece in progress. It is definitely home made. The frame is...

  9. Hand Tools
    My neighbors just sold their home and are packing their stuff. They gave me an interesting hand tool, but I do not know what it is or what it is used for. It is rusty and appears to be old. It may not be related to woodworking - it could be for the kitchen, or farming, or some type of craft or...

    I need help IDing these blocks of wood. The first and last picture shows what it looks like when slightly damp. The rest is when it's completely dry. This kind of wood smells really great. When I sanded it, it gave off a rather sweet smell. When water was dabbed on its surface, it also gave off...
