"Mick, antler has to be turned very slowly. It is essentially hair, so you can imagine the smell if you let it get hot. Drilling is challenging, as well. I don't really care to work with it, but since I have a LOT of deer-hunting…"

"Mick, I'm pretty sure they will. My point is that the majority of the time the twisted and bent blank will still be suitable to make a pen. I've made pens from antlers, which are far from straight. "

"I've cut them down to blank size immediately. They'll dry in no time and let's face it, most of the blank is waste anyway. :) "

Hugh Clare replied to Mark J Kristan's discussion 'Custom Jig Settings'
"If I understand your explanation correctly, you have two problems with the way you set up the jig. The first is that your screw won't exit the work piece in the center of the thickness. The second is that you reduce the amount of wood between…"

Nail Gun accident!

"Hope it's also your last bout with self-impalement, too, Justin. Nail guns are right up there with table saws in not forgiving complacency. I've had three such incidents in 35 years. As a teenager, I managed to nail my shoe to the floor…"

"Mark, I think the only "wrong" decision you could have made would have been to go through life without a band saw. LOL Your arsenal of capabilities is now huge. Enjoy learning what you can do, my friend. "

"Mark, I was trying caution you to not be mesmerized by the additional 2" of resaw capacity. Yes, technically, it has that capacity. That being said, the deeper you cut, the heavier the blade needs to be. I'm not certain that a 1"…"

Hugh Clare replied to Jason Watkins's discussion 'anyone making money with your woodworking?'
"The only thing I would add to what's already been said is to look into for your smaller items. It appears to be reasonably priced and would save you a lot of marketing headaches. I plan on putting a few of my turned pens on there."

"The 10-350 has some really cool features not found on the 10-345. I especially like the blade tension lockout. The drawback I see to it is I think the wheel diameter is too small for the resaw capacity. Bigger blades require more…"

"Mark,  I would recommend that you spend a lot of time researching what a band saw is capable of doing, then decide which of those features are most important to you. I don't need an 18" saw 90% of the time but I didn't want to…"

"Mark,  It sports a standard NEMA 250V/20A plug (spades are horizontal instead of vertical. I built an adapter for mine to plug into a 30A twist outlet."

"John, You can make your desired joint by setting the stop collar slightly closer to the drill bit tip as Ken suggested. My experience has been that the pocket holes on the inside tends to split the ends of the receiving board even when you you the…"

A cool Memorial Day find!!!

I took the chance to head the shop this morning. I decided to finish salvaging an oak bedroom set that was no longer suitable for use as furniture.

The bedroom set belonged to my mother during her childhood and was where we slept when visiting my grandparents. It was somewhat crudely built, but lasted for many years. Grandma ultimately gave the furniture to Mom, who in turn gave it to me. As the years of use took it's toll on the furniture, I decided to salvage the lumber…
