Re: Shop Talk Live 24: Wicked Weapon for Terrific Tenons

Yeah I tried the prodcast too. Didn't make it past the 1 minute mark. Without video it just don't make it. For me anyway.

Re: Can Fine Woodworking and art furniture coexist?

I don't consider Loeser a expert om woodworking to begin with. That said, Some people like painting's that scream uckkkkkk. He has his way. I don't like what he does too much. Each to their own I guess.

Re: Where Can a 11th grader get a grant for my never updated 62 year old high school shop class

JS, Do post the pics when you get the chance. Don't worry about the 2 goobers trying to correct you spelling. Old machines if still sound are better than most of the stuff out there today. They just need a bit of work. Good luck with your new venture. Gary

Re: Watch someone turn a lamp shade (it's better than that sounds, really)

What is with all this winning? To much waste????Are you kidding me? This piece of wood was on the way to a fire wood pile. By the way I drive a SUV and get about 22 MPG. So lets hear the neg. crap about that.

Re: Curvy Cabinet: Bending Dovetails in Butternut

That is one nice piece John. The bending dovetails (curved) is something I'm gonna have to try. Just wish I had some old recycled Butternut. That wood is reel purty>.

Re: Father's Day Must-Have Woodworking Gifts

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Hand Planes in the Modern Shop by Kerry Pierce

I need a few more planes. This book would maybe help me to decide which ones. Thanks Gary

Re: Garrett Hack Visits German Tool-Maker

Garrett, "in May for a small cabinet project". Are you gonna do a video? Hope so. Looking forward to watching you work again. Gary

Re: My Basement Toy Box

That's what is important. Enjoying your time. Nice set-up.

Re: Humidor for life

Gulp.. Wow..

Re: How to Make Leaded Glass Doors

Instead of using a metal square for the straight edge use a wooden one. We are woodworkers right? Make one out of a good hard wood about 1/8th to 3/16ths thick. Also any glass cutter will do just fine. Find a small can, put in some small torn up rags, then a light oil. Dab the cutter in the can before each cut. I worked as a glazier for about 12 years. This works pretty good

Re: Have you seen Tommy Mac's new woodworking show? Let us know what you think.

Maybe we can all give this show a bit of time to mature. I seem to remember some of the responces when Norm use the "biscuit" or,,,,,OMG the 'brad nailer". We all learned to love Norm. Tommy has a way to go, but maybe he needs out support. So I will wait a while and watch what happens. Hope he can make the changes and make the show a success.

Re: Have you seen Tommy Mac's new woodworking show? Let us know what you think.

I too enjoyed the show. Ok, its a bit fast. Maybe Tommy needs to have a longer show or break it down in a couple of weeks. Give the guy a chance. We do need to support our craft.

Re: Federal style hall table

Very nice piece Frank. Guess I need to come back to Waco and learn a bit more from you. See you soon, Gary

Re: Black Walnut Coffee Table

What is that table doing in your living room? You said it was for your girlfriend. Did you marry her? (smile) Nice work on that table. Really like those curved runners.

Re: Is the Radial Arm Saw on its Last Legs?

If your making a bunch of lap joints its hard to beat. Well if they are rough cut lap joints that is. Still hard to beat that way. (with a dado blade)

Re: Bar Stools

A bull legged frog!!! I LIKE it. Very nice work.

Re: Are CNC machines ready for Fine Woodworking?

I think for the most part that hand tools are the way to go. Gimme a hand cut dovetail any day. Don't want to see machines take over small shops.

Re: Hawaii Moon

Love that finish too.
