Ted McGrath woodworking plans

I would assume that everyone got the WoodworkingWeb notifier regarding ordering thousands of woodworking plans from Ted for only $67.00 if you order immediately. The BBB has an alert on Ted that says he Is not on the up and up, and if you have any unresolved dispute with this company you may wish to seek legal advice. His address, phone and email is bogus. All his info is already on the internet for free. What I don’t understand is how and why are we getting this in WoodworkingWeb...

Been 5+ years....

Just received Martin’s note the other day. I haven’t posted in a long time… Business has never slowed down, and I was trapped in making the chess sets for so long I never had the chance to keep up on any of the wood sites. To say I was burned out, would be an understatement of gross proportions. I’ve been trying to quit making sets for three years now, haha, but I’ve learned to only accept the projects that interest me, and I’ve switched gears a bit and started making life size Saint...

I’ve been out of my shop for over 2 yrs.

I had to have a total hip replacement and I’m still using a Cane. I sure miss not being able to get back in the shop. I don’t feel steady enough to feed lumber through My machinery. So I’m in the process of building a remote controlled lawnmower. I can sit on a chair and cut my grass using an rc transmitter. I have a friend who can lift my lawnmower up on my assembly table. It’s been fun figuring out the electronics. I miss you guys and gals, stay safe billp

Hello All!

Hi. I’m Barry. I’m a Canadian transplant in Houston, TX area. I got bitten by the woodworking bug about 3 years ago and I’ve been trying to improve my skills ever since. I have a small area in my garage that I use for woodworking and I have been slowly adding to my tooling and knowledge. I look for new ideas online and try to push my limits on what I can achieve with the limited supplies. It’s so nice to see the finished products after putting all the time into them. I’m looking forward to...

Workload/ load capacity

Hi. How would I go about determine the weight this metal framed cabinet can hold, provided the weight is evenly distributed? Does the shape detract from the amount of weight it could hold, and suggestions on what I could do to beef up the capacity would be helpful. I would like to use it for a 55gal aquarium.

Woodworking web notifiers

I just realized that I am not getting any Woodworking Web Notifiers emails any more. Anyone else having this problem?

Hi guys, I am planning to move in two months now. But as early as today, I want to know what are the best ways to move smoothly. I really don’t want to have issues with anything.

Shop time.

Living in Houston TX. I find myself using a lot of time on tools. High humidity with salt in it is not good for tools. I have not timed my tool time vs. shoptime, but guess I spend about 15% of my time on tools. Shop cleanup is shop time to me. Does any body have thoughts? —Madts.

We Could Use Some New Topics...

I’ve been unsuccessful in encouraging members to initiate new topics. I’m not a chatty person, nor casual by any means; however, I do enjoy a provocative discussion of woodworking – call me crazy (many people have, and have lived to tell the tale). Does some have something they’d like to share?

Post-Project Shop Reset; Optimizing the Small Shop

The following covers two areas: getting my shop ready for the next project, and optimizing the small shop. Post-Project Reset We each have our procedures; one of mine is that after every project, I reset the shop. The reset includes re-touching each tool that I’ve used, and performing whatever cleaning, oiling, sharpening, and re-aligning is appropriate. Also, within my relatively small shop, where everything is on wheels, other than my Table Saw and Jointer/Planer, getting the equipment...

Dining table top grain question

I am building a dining room table with a top of approximately 44” by 65”. The bottom will be painted with lamp black milk paint and the top will be oak with only clear topcoat. I have a supply of beautiful oak just the right length to make the top cross grain rather than running the 65 “ length of the table. My question is have you seen a table with cross grain and did it just look weird? Advantages would be getting to use a supply of great looking oak versus having to do lots of glue...

Hey everyone

Hello There, Just an old woodworker looking for new ideas, plans, and just to see what others are building out there. I build wooden toys, spoons, and cutting board for sale but I have built almost everything from boats to furniture, bowls to log cabins, and guitars, banjos, and dulcimers. I hope to get lots of new ideas from this group and perhaps hone my skills a little more. I’ll be putting some of my creations on here from time to time and hopefully make some friends with folks of a...

Resident Skills

I’ve commented, previously, that a Forum is defined by the skills and mentoring-willingness of its active members. And, there is the other side of that coin, that other members need to be asking the provocative questions to draw-out and provide a context for the active members. I have no idea if others agree with me; but I’ll take a stab at something… I’m calling on this Forum’s members to discuss what they do well (not a time to be bashful); and to discuss what they need help with: for...
