Wood Talk

Around the Web


  • Pug asks “I was wondering if you could talk about planes for hollows and rounds. What sizes are “common”? What is a good brand to buy?”
  • Larry is concerned about rust prevention in his unheated pole bar, considering the tools keep getting covered in rust between uses.
  • Everett brags about his tool cleaning and rust prevention method.
  • Ákos Kerékgyártó, a bowyer from Hungary, asks how to stain veneer (1.5 mm thick ashwood) completely, not just on the surface so he can do something similar to what he saw at www.rosewoodarchery.com
  • Chris is concerned about using his bench grinder and taking the temper out of the steel.
  • Darryl has a Delta TP305 thickness planer that is not cutting parallel to the bed.
  • Will is asking about purchasing a set of backsaws (preferably a matched set so as to not set off his OCD)
  • Walter asks about sanding plywood and how do you determine the starting grit? Is it different for baltic ply vs a more expensive grade like a cherry veneer plywood?
  • Jack wonders about our techniques for tensioning a bandsaw blade and whether we’re musically inclined enough for the JP Thien method?
  • Larry has a number of questions starting with SawStop Zero-clearance inserts, to a stumper about his Record 53-1/2 Vise getting stuck
  • Jim is looking for opinions between the Festool and Dewalt track saws.
