|Thread: Veneer Rippling|
This subject comes up often and if you have a look here on another forum you may be able to find an answer.
|Thread: Tables saw problem|
Check the fuse.
|Thread: Table Saw Blade Question|
If you have come to the conclusion that you are flogging a dead horse then put it back in the box list it on one of the selling sites and seek out a new one, there are some fairly decent 10" table saws about for around the hundred squids mark, Scheppach, Ferm, Lumberjack etc.
|Thread: wine glasses|
Just wondering how you would go about washing these without getting the stem wet?????
|Thread: Bandsaw advice|
Seems a bit of an overkill to me seeing as you are rating yourself as a 'hobbyist', any decent bandsaw which will take a three-quarter inch (20mm) blade will do e.g. Record BS400, unless you can get one second hand which would be the way I would go.
|Thread: Another built in|
Inventiveness and skill are just a couple adjectives I would use to describe your work, would love to spend a day in your workshop.

|Thread: Finally finished this wine rack|
I would have thought a 'shared' bottle was not enough for that excellent rack.
|Thread: Flattening sandpaper|
Carpet spray adhesive (B&Q) will hold your sandpaper down, spray, leave for a minute, fix sandpaper and if it rolls up place another piece of mdf on top until it dries but you shouldn't need to do that.

0 degrees C is freezing point, ain't no glue going to work in that temperature.
Everbuild D3 is as good as any other and commonly available in builders merchants, if you want what the kitchen worktop manufacturers use then D4 PVA (Everbuild again) can be got on the net.
|Thread: Birch Faced Plywood|
I think you are talking about Birch ply, this is different from the usual marine (and other) ply. If you cannot locate Birch ply then try Jewsons, they do a nice solid void-free ply which they call 'Wisa' ply and the covering is nicer than plain white Birch.
|Thread: At Last|
Nice one Derek, the white wood is Sycamore..
|Thread: Walnut box & Neat hinges|
Edited By Eugene Anderson on 17/01/2014 20:44:07
Just finished this Walnut box and thought I'd use Ian Hawthorne's new Neat hinges for the hardware, It is always a tough decision which hinges to use and usually the deciding factor is down to price but if you are going to spend time and effort making a box and it is going to be a thing of beauty (hopefully) then it seems a shame to spoil it by fitting cheap hardware which always looks out of place and detracts from the finish.
Ian also does a 180 deg opening hinge for games boards and writing slopes etc. just Google Hawthorncrafts or Neathinge.
Question for you, how much do you think I should be asking for this stuff ? I am in a constant quandary about pricing my boxes, they obviously need to be priced to sell but then you need to make a few squids, I am retired so my time doesn't really come into it, I am always being told to charge for my time but this is not my living and the time it takes me to do one of these (8-10 days is at my speed) is not important, I do this at my pace and start and stop when the fancy takes me.
|Thread: Wanted, Old style Stanly 92|
I have sadly lost my Stanly 92 Shoulder plane (loaned it with regret) and am on the hunt for another, none on e-bay at the mo but they seem to be selling around the 40 pound mark if any has one doing nothing.
|Thread: East Midlands Woodworking Show|
For anybody who has not heard about it yet, there will be a new Woodworking and Tools show, this time in the East Midlands at last, in the Newark Showground in March 2014. The link is here.

|Thread: may give up|
Whereabouts are you Steve? looks like some mountains in the background so I doubt if it's lincolnshire where I am if you wanted to spend some time, is it the handling of the tools that is causing you the hassle or what?
I only took it up a year or so ago and only had one day with a woodturner, struggled on with a couple of video's and lots of dig-in's, but now coming to terms with it, I try to keep a keen eye on the tool tip and everything I do so that if it goes wrong I can rectify it, gradually getting there and improving, see a few of the latest boxes I have made, the view is a little wrong as they were photographed to mainly show the Agate inlays.
|Thread: cherry jewelry box|
Looks looks like a lot of love and care has gone into that one you better hope she doesn't come to you to get you to help fill it with shiny stuff
|Thread: Watch the birdy|
Brilliant, you have too much time on your hands, I bet it's got carpets inside..............and the birds are going to have to pay visiting fees.
|Thread: one down, two to go!|
Made a miniature one some time ago so I know the problems involved, lucky to get the cabriole legs ready made to fit the job.
|Thread: New Home Made Tool|
That is a brilliant idea Carl, they can be sharpened with a little diamond hone and there are bundles of these available (ebay) in a variety of shapes, the round one would be useful, and for not a lot of money and so very replaceable, no reason why it couldn't be used on the outside for detail work.
Could you show us the other when it's done?
