    Hello! I just picked up this second hand table the other day. It seems to have lots of white "cracks" on the surface of the table as if the finish has been split apart. When running my hand across the surface, I can feel some of these cracks, but others I can not. Is this intentional in the...

    I recently borrowed my friend's PC890 router, and while tightening a bit into the collet, the spindle lock pin broke right half in two. I have read that this is a common occurrence and that the vast majority of people don't bother replacing it, but since it doesn't belong to me, it certainly...

    Hi there, I'm new here so apologies for the basic question. I'm looking to repair a bit of chipped wood off a dresser. I've attached what the chip looks like here. You can see a bit of the bare wood, and the top could be some sort of other wood-looking laminate or vinyl? not sure. Either way...

    Hello everyone, Recently some nail polish remover was left in a kleenex on my table, which resulted in the spot seen below. When wetted down it darkens almost back to the normal table color, but lacks a little shine. What should I do? Is there any way to fix this spot? Thanks, Erik

    Hello All! I am working on a project to repair a wobbly dining room chair. However, I have not run into this seat assembly before. The seat assembly is held together by corner blocks that are slotted (see photo). It appears this was a pressure fit and no glue was used on this portion. My...

    I’m totally new to woodworking and my first project is to fix a 2 month old “solid wood” chair that broke into 3 pieces. It literally split in the leg joint. I’ve chiseled out the broken wood and am planning to use a piece of cedar shingle to fill the hole, add wood glue and use metal bolts to...

    So I roll off the side of my bed, only to feel the bed drop as I hear wood break. I look down and the top part of the bedrail is broken off (as seen re-glued in the picture). Once I get the mattress and boxspring off so I can take the bedrail off, I can see that the slit where the fastener is...

    I would be eternally grateful for any help with this scenario. This was my first major project, it’s essentially a cabinet, with most of the box being made from play wood with an ash veneer. The top is made with solid walnut, stained dark. I used biscuits and Elmer’s wood glued to attach the...

    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...

    Check out my recent YouTube video! It wasn't intended for YouTube purposes at first, but it was still a cool project that I thought would be nice to share. Hope you enjoy!

    Hello everyone! I built this planter back in July. I placed a biodegradable container (Paw Pods) inside as the resting place for my recently deceased cat. It's made of recycled barn oak and cedar. I read oak was best for weather resistance, so I imagined it would be good for a planter. I oiled...

    Built a play table for my son. Finished the top of the table with glaze coat epoxy. On day two of the epoxy drying and curing my wife placed a towel over the table and applied pressure leaving a hand print impression. I tried lightly sanding the area with 800 grit and polishing but the haziness...

    I had several doors (craftsman/shaker style) for my remodel in my basement when it flooded. The doors only got wet briefly on the lower 1-4" of the door and the frame is still good. The doors have a solid wood core but have a mdf veneer about 1/8" as can be seen on the bottom of door and that's...

    Hi all! New guy here. I’ve undertaken a fairly (for me, anyway!) ambitious project of building a 6’ octagon which houses a center Weber Grill for on-the-fly grilling and imbibing. It’s built 100% out of Cypress which I’ve read to be a great choice for outdoor furniture. I’ve covered it in 5...

    so i decided to repair an antique bookcase that my grandfather built, the repair was to fix the shelves which had come out of their joints, the bottom being the worst and going up the bookcase the width of the opening lessened. i ran to lowes and got the smallest wood screws i could find because...

    Hi All! I have knackered the floorboards under my desk. They are pine and my roller chair has killed them. I know that I should have done something sooner, but haven't been able to. Please can I get some advise for repairing them. They don't need to be showroom, but really just want to get...

    So I found this jigsaw in the garage. It belonged to my late grandpa and it's about 15 years old. The motor still runs strong, and cuts smoothly. The problem is that the scroller doesn't lock completely straight either, so I have to hold the saw itself slightly cock-eyed so the blade runs...
