Woodworkers Discuss Unique Materials: Woodchat Transcript January 11, 2012

Woodworkers got together to discuss sourcing and incorporating unique materials for their projects during #woodchat.

Woodchat Transcript January 11, 2012 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern

@cascokid: YouTube demos of plow planes omit crosscut dados. Why’s that? No scoring spurs? What’s the complete hand plane dado soln? #woodchat

@RenaissanceWW: @cascokid no nickers and lack of a skewed iron for a cleaner but prevents the plow from making great crossgrain work #woodchat

@bglenden: @RenaissanceWW What do you do to make a cross-grain narrow dado, saw the line and then use your plow plane? #woodchat

@theboisshop: Anyone know if there is going to be a #woodchat tonight?

@MansFineFurn: @theboisshop yes I’m pretty sure #woodchat is on for tonight, not sure of the topic though

@uppercutwood: Woodchat is on tonight. 6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern. Topic is great places to source supplies and unique uses of materials. #woodchat

@Torch02: Enjoy #woodchat everyone, it is a very early night for me #exhausted

@uppercutwood: @Torch02 it’s cause you’re working out so hard bud! Keep it up! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Looking forward to woodchat tonight in 7 minutes! #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Hey #woodchat hope all is well. I’ve been off twitter for the day (work), but I’ll try to participate if get home soon.

@Tooltutor: Going to miss #woodchat tonight. Going on 19 hrs in the delivery room. Why didn’t anyone tell me about this part? #fatherhood

@uppercutwood: @Tooltutor congratulations! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I will be hanging out on Google+ during #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @TweetChat #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Good evening all #woodchat

@uppercutwood: OK, woodchat is officially starting. I hope people can make it tonight. We’re going to discuss where to get materials (cont) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: including wood, hardware, and other unique materials and how to incorporate them into your projects. (cont) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: May also discuss making your own hardware, or aging hardware. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood Good to see you Vic, I miss your musk! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor doesn’t that kid know its time for #woodchat? #congrats

@uppercutwood: I got the topic idea after looking for the screen material for these lockers. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Hi guys #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood we just did hardware, two or three weeks ago, maybe skip that one #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn How about other supplies, like unique materials into your projects, glass, screen, lighting, led, chrome, kevlar #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Or we could decide to cover another topic altogether, it’s up to you guys #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Cool lockers. I like the fact they have screen on the bottom to to let snow drain to the floor. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I thought that was interesting. These guys have cool door grilles #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Evening fellas #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson did you notice the snow drains to a drawer, I assume it’s lined. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood I get most of my hardware from local true value or Lee Valley. You? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood No, I saw the tile floor and assumed… Hmm.. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke There are some cool custom suppliers, I always forget to check McMaster Carr though and it’s a goldmine #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn I typically get inspired for non-standard materials from work. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood I’ll have to check them next time. Thanks. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: On materials, anybody have a cheap source of plexiglass. The thicker stuff like 1/4″ is expensive #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I would try McMaster Carr #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I don’t use much in the way of non-std materials. I’ve been wanting to incorporate stone (rough granite?) into a design, bench? #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Not material but I’m looking for raised panel router bit sets. Usually use MLCS. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I haven’t used any non standard materials so far either, but I can see working them in #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn stone is a great idea – I keep forgetting that, and slate, ceramic, or glass tiles too #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Does anyone have a project with unique materials they’d like to share? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Check out some of the cool materials here, that you could put into a frame and panel door #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood I’ll look, but I really hate the Mcmaster Carr website. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I’m especially interested in including high tech items into a desk. Lighting, power, USB, phone docking, speakers… #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Interesting stuff. I can see some possibilities for future cabinets. Thanks for the link. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Yeah, there are some cool desk products, but they are really expensive for how simple they are. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood sintered Stainless steel mesh looks cool from the link you just sent #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I would be happy with a USB 3.0 hub that was discrete to power up devices #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: yes, the sintered mesh is quite interesting. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn $77 per square foot for that! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood One thing I found that Monoprice is a really cheap place to buy monitor mounting hardware cant find anything USB3 #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood just said it was cool, not that I could afford it! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I am going to see Darrell Peart this weekend and audio record his G&G presentation with a new microphone. #woodchat

@kweinert: Anyone done anything with shoji paper? #woodchat

@sharpendwood: @uppercutwood I’ve used tin for panels that I punched a design into #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood I just checked out his website, wow! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I have a design concept that requires a large diameter 1-2″ marble (the glass shooting kind, cateyes etc.) but black. Sources? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @kweinert I haven’t, but I have been wanting to try a lamp with paper. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn I have used & love glass tiles in my woodworking projects #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I get to video tape his presentation on the 29th where he shows his shop. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn I would try to find a local glass studio that could point you to an artist. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I want to use shoji paper for door panel on armoires #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sharpendwood Did you make your own punching tools? Were these similar to tile ceilings? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood true, maybe a blown-glass sphere would work instead. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MansFineFurn I would say Ax-man Surplus but they are only located in Minnesota. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: #woodchat This is a test. Is anybody there?

@BillGriggs: Hello all#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn They might be able to get you a solid one too. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @BillGriggs Hello Bill! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns No #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ramblinrdesigns yes! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Another good source for oddities is they have lots of shop supplies too. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns Welcome! #woodchat

@kweinert: @MansFineFurn You could try #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @WoodworkGuy Hi Jeff.#woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood here’s my walnut & glass tile book stand #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Bill we are discussing sourcing and using interesting materials in your designs (glass, stone, metal, electronics, kevlar, etc) #woodchat

@asliceofwood: hello all tonight #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Parking meter guts…Cool! #woodchat

@kweinert: @uppercutwood Love that place – you can get some unusual stuff there, usually a pretty good deal too #woodchat

@BillGriggs: I’m learning Corian and wood inlays.


@thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Hey Tim #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @kweinert Great place to get containers too #woodchat

@imaginer99: Hello all! Is his still where woodchat is? #Woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs Do you have any photos or links showing the corian inlays? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Corian inlaid in wood, wood inlayed in Corian or somethin different #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @thewoodninja hey kenny….hows it going tonight? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Thanks @kweinert …you found my marbles!! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @imaginer99 Last time I checked that’s what we were doing. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @imaginer99 It sure is, welcome aboard #woodchat

@BillGriggs: No photos yet. Wood inlayed in Corian#woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @MansFineFurn LOL Nick! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Not bad! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I got to do some interesting stuff over the holidays, I used a laser engraver on cherry. Smelled and looked great. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood you should post on the laser engraving on wood sometime #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood any photos? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I also got the new Bosch Router (this one) #woodchat

@kweinert: @MansFineFurn Glad I could help. It’s been a while, but I used them for a project once. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood I will be posting photos and video of the laser engraving soon. I used a “makerspace” laser for $1 per minute #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sharpendwood #woodchat any photos of the project that incorporated tin?

@MansFineFurn: @DyamiPlotke love it!#woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood what did you engrave? a sign? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: We’re halfway through woodchat. I’d love ideas for future topics or areas for improvement. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood Arrow Of Light award plaques for a local Boy Scout Troop. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood well worth the $1 per minute #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Whats the status of G+ it sounds like Al is done with the twitter woodchat #woodchat

@sharpendwood: Pic of one of the tin panels. One of my 1st ww projects. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Nearly forgot #woodchat tonight… How’s everyone this evening?

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood I am in the process of rebuilding a lasercutter. Here is a link. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I don’t know the status of G+ chat, @Tumblewood is driving it and we need to discuss. If it works, I’m in! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson Last time we tried G+ it didn’t work well #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sharpendwood that looks awesome, and labor intensive! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood Trophy shops were a lot more expensive than $1 per minute #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Where do you find the money for these toys ūüôā #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood @benjamenjohnson we gave up on g+ too quickly #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood I could imagine them being more expensive #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood mentioned yesterday, If G+works & all can participate as equals, I’m sold too, not with limited participation (video #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: #woodchat @uppercutwood how’d you like the new Bosch? I m thinking Bosch 1716? Or Triton 3-1/4hp

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood It’s improving everyday, I’m sure we’ll be back to G+ #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @asliceofwood @uppercutwood “we gave up on g+ too quickly” it just wasn’t clear on what we should have been doing. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WVWoodshed the new Bosch is epically awesome, except for the proprietary template bushing stuff. they have a PC adapter though. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: It would be great if G+ works out for #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Wow where were makerspaces 15 years ago when I was trying to engrave a hardened steel sword? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @benjamenjohnson haha yeah, everyone was chatting everywhere that night #woodchat

@sharpendwood: @uppercutwood Thanks! It was a lot of pounding, but kinda fun ūüôā #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sharpendwood I need to try that again. I remember doing a project like that in grade school. Simple but cool #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @WVWoodshed are there apply symbols on your chisels on your blog? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: We have this at work to use for free, but they need to safety train you first and I haven’t been trained yet #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @WVWoodshed apple* #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Man I hope #woodchat is fading out! Participation is way down tonight, huh!!!

@uppercutwood: @WVWoodshed I hope it’s NOT fading out ūüôā #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @wvwoodshed seems that way. Kind of quiet tonight.#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WVWoodshed to make sure it doesn’t fade, what topics would you like covered? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @WVWoodshed it isn’t fading could be transmission issues with the different connection software #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood What are you waiting for? Or is the training schedule out of your hands. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs I need to be better at reminding people during the day, and I’m behind on posting transcripts. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson training schedule is out of my hands. they wait for enough people, then they hold a session #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood did we cover all of the topics from the ‘topics’ list already? If not, lets work down the list. (send all the link) #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @WVWoodshed It’s been a strange week, for me at least, maybe it’s something about this time of year. Or it could be the weather #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Good idea, please hold #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood the transcripts have been posted (almost) religiously on G+ Woodchat (though I have had to send it to Vic alot) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: If you have topics you’d like covered please vote here #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I’m still recovering from the holidays #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: i got a new topic: worst woodworking injuries + lessons learned #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @MansFineFurn What site are you looking at with the list? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I have been crazy busy at work and the goofy weather is playing tricks on my sinuses It’s been hard for me to make shop time or #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn That’s right, and we also want them posted on Modern Woodworker Association #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs: RT @uppercutwood: If you have topics youd like covered please vote here #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn add it to the list, it might be a good reminder for Safety Week #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood good point, with all of us here, I’m sure we can make it happen (MWA) #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Well let’s just hope it’s the time of year or whatever! @benjamenjohnson #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood How about which light and dark woods play well together. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I’m always looking for new woods to work with. I just used some camaru. it fuzzes alot when machined and is hard on chisels #woodchat

@uppercutwood: The woodchat owners are going to hangout and talk about next steps to push woodchat forward #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs Like that one. Combinations of woods/materials that complement #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Good question. I like maple and walnut. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: A discussion on people’s experiences with exotics – what to look for and look out for #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson Where is Camaru from? Tell us about it! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Can someone add that to the list? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I do too, made a chessboard like that long ago #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson I have some Walnut waiting to be used. Now to get some more Maple.#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood I suggest a topic be chosen early and oft repeated during the week. may get people thinking and lining up links #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Perhaps I can get Shannon Rogers of @mcilvainlumber to host a discussion about woods #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Oops been spelling it wrong #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @MansFineFurn good idea Nick. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Good idea, and post the topic to the G+ page, and people can add their links there actually #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood that would be interesting #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: #woodchat I think red oak and purpleheart look good even though the pourousity of the grain is different!

@WoodworkGuy: Good evening @woodshaver101 #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Example maple and walnut #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @woodshaver101 Good evening. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 Howdy! it’s been slow, but good. Almost done for the night. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood how, in comments? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Anyone ever taken a piece of cherry to a tanning bed? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn #woodchat there is an other for the poll so you can write in a topic

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood no, but out into the summer sun, yes #woodchat

@kweinert: A place to check for some exotics, some things like burl is new(ish) site, folks also sell wood. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood That sounds like a bad joke.#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood ok, did that #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Umm I’ve never taken myself to a tanning booth… ūüėČ #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood The best part was the smell when it was cut. Can’t describe it but it was sweet #woodchat

@woodshaver101: i see were talkin wood ,i like maple or ash mixed with a darker wood like walnut or sabale#woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @MansFineFurn thanks, Nick. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Do I need special access to the #woodchat G+ site and how do I get added to the circle?

@uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy And I don’t mean a spray tan booth like jersey shore fistpumps #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood I don’t do that either ROFL #woodchat

@kweinert: @uppercutwood Fine Woodworking did an article earlier this year: #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WVWoodshed I’m not sure. @DyamiPlotke may know #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @billgriggs Ash+ Walnut: #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke Welcome buddy! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @kweinert Thanks for the info. #woodchat

@kweinert: @kweinert well, last year ūüôā #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn What finish is on the bed, and how’d you apply it? #woodchat

@bmorewoodwork: #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Well, I never thought of tanning/aging Cherry. Another learning from this group! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @bmorewoodwork #woodchat Rocking a 40!

@BillGriggs: @MansFineFurn That is a nice Shaker style bed you made. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy that’s an easy way to “stain” cherry dark #woodchat

@woodshaver101: paxton lumber is a good source to get wood,in the midwest #woodchat

@theboisshop: Is there a fine for being tardy to #woodchat?

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood HVLP Hydrocote Resisthane and clear Briwax. some BLO and wax on the wedges #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop This is the second time you’ve been tardy, so you’re re-tardy #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @theboisshop one MILLION dollars #woodchat

@kweinert: I’ve done a few mixed pens: yellowheart/walnut, maple/walnut, chechen/maple. Tried a celtic knot, maple/walnut but not quite right #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 do they ship? Website? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop how’s the curvy step stool coming? #woodchat

@kweinert: @woodshaver101 There’s one here in Denver as well. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs thanks Bill! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Never heard of Hydrocote Reisthane, what is it? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: RT @uppercutwood: If you have topics you’d like covered please vote here #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @kweinert I’ve been contemplating yellowheart and purpleheart for a project. Viking Colors! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood yes and they have several locations #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke do you know the status of the G+ woodchat solution? Do we have an upgraded hangout or chat that would work? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn email me the transcript (or a link) and I’ll be happy to post #woodchat transcripts on the MWA site.

@kweinert: @uppercutwood (Paxton Wood) never tried shipping, just drive a few miles ūüôā #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke @MansFineFurn can they get copied from Vic’s site or mine? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood waterborne pre-cat lacquer from Hood Finishes Gonna try some General Finishes on next project #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @kweinert yes they pick up a used moulder in milwaukee and shiped it to there denver local #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @kweinert I wonder how Aspin and Walnut would work together. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Well that finish looks awesome, thanks for the link. Would like to try Water Borne Lacquer. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DyamiPlotke @uppercutwood If I have it all recorded, I think I can post it directly #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs Aspen is REALLY soft #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs isn’t aspen soft? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @WVWoodshed the #woodchat G+ is a corporate site. You must circle it before it can circle you.

@woodshaver101: @BillGriggs interesting combination #woodchat

@kweinert: @BillGriggs Depends on what you’re doing with it. Aspen much softer, I’d worry about dust contamination, walnut->aspen #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs I bet they’d look good, but aspen is soooo soft. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @bmorewoodwork drink and sand? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @kweinert walnut dust getting in big Aspen pores? #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @MansFineFurn @uppercutwood D’OH! Your right.#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood just watch what you put it over (read my bad experience: great over raw wood or waterbased #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MansFineFurn @uppercutwood Jinx! #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood howdy, Matt. Sorry I’ve been in and out. I’ve been running errands during #woodchat Pinewood Derby is Friday. Lots to do.

@MansFineFurn: @DyamiPlotke we need a ‘guide’ to woodchatting with G+, even I have trouble with it (not that I’m a G+ guru…) #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @theboisshop sorry Rob, but you must turn in that saw you allegedly won. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs If you’re doing inlay, holly on walnut is a classic #woodchat

@kweinert: @uppercutwood pores not that big, but it fuzzes and does seem to have a lot of little crevasses. #woodchat

@theboisshop: RT @MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs If you’re doing inlay, holly on walnut is a classic #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn oh man that sounds not fun. I’ve heard of similar problems when people screw up stain with topcoat. #woodchat

@bmorewoodwork: #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn When we migrate to G+, we’ll definately have a user guide #woodchat

@woodshaver101: any one work with flat cut sapale #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I mixed rough cedar with Ambrosia maple. Pictures on my Lumberjocks page. I don’t know how to link it here. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood G+ hangouts w/ extras accept more folk, screen sharing & recording (though I couldn’t get it to record when i tried) #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn I suppose I can just copy. I’ll try w/ tonight’s transcript. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn that post is a great learning tool, thanks for sharing your pain with finishing, it’ll help me down the road! #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @MansFineFurn @uppercutwood try that there direct posting, Nick. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: #woodchat Just got here and now I gotta go, DANGIT!!! Everyone be safe! Keep your mind on your fingers and your fingers on your hands!!!

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood glad to screw up to help the rest! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: OK all, I’m off to read Nick’s post in detail, grab a transcript to post later, and by a Microphone. Good seeing y’all! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @WVWoodshed Take care Stephen #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DyamiPlotke I will, if I have the whole transcript #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood g’nite Matt! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Have a good one Matt! #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood goodnight, Matt. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I’m heading out as well. Take care all #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Goodnight, all. Happy #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @kweinert Tea Candle holder. Is that Cherry?#woodchat

@bmorewoodwork: Cheers! Happy #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I am outta here. Good night. Happy #woodchat

@kweinert: @BillGriggs Nope, alder #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: unless there are objections, seems like #woodchat is winding down, so I’ll end the transcript here(ish) and head to bed. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good night all.#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: none? then I’m off..goodnight all! #woodchat

Video Post #9: Weekend Treeworking

We recently had a storm come through and the high winds and soft wet ground meant we had a tree blow over. Today I used my truck, some come-alongs, some rope and fly-fishing knots to right the tree and secure it to a strong fencepost.

Woodworkers Discuss Hardware Sources: Woodchat Transcript December 14, 2011

Although the #woodchat team couldn’t make it, chatters still got together.

Woodchat Transcript December 14, 2011 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern

@DyamiPlotke: RT @benjamenjohnson¬†What’s the topic(s) tonight? #woodchat¬†@dividedlight: Sounds like we’re going to discuss hardware suppliers. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat is in Twitter tonight

@WVWoodshed: Oops, see the topic is hardware sources. Honestly, I’ve gotten most of my hardware from the big boxes. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: We can go with the #woodchat suggested topic or talk about other things.

@MansFineFurn: 1. good sources for HW/hinges/slides etc 2. Can you be profitable and do handwork (how much detail/handwork can you do) #woodchat”

@WVWoodshed: I received a hardware catalog from Veritas (Lee Valley), but haven’t shopped it yet. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I’d say lets start with a vote/suggestions on topics, if folks want to stick with proposed (HW) for a while that’s cool too #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I’ve purchased things from Rockler, Woodcraft, McFeely’s¬†and Lee Valley – along with big box and local Ace Hdwe¬†#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: we’re organic and free form¬†tonight #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: When I did cabinet work I used: #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: #woodchat¬†I found a good source for small wooden parts recently… Lara’s Crafts (they sell some stuff at Michaels)

@dividedlight: Ditto for these.RT @WoodworkGuy: Ive purchased things from Rockler, Woodcraft, McFeelys and Lee Valley #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: as far as HW, I’m a big fan of Lee Valley, but for specialty stuff I also use Horton Brasses #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I find McFeelys¬†too expensive for the same stuff…good selection of screws though #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: One off topic question I have is; How do you fund your shop? Especially when starting from scratch. #woodchat

@dividedlight: My work requires large hardware and my favorite is House of Antique Hardware. Excellent customer service. #woodchat

@imaginer99: Online retailers have great photos and selection for hardware. Only downside is shipping can be expensive due to weight. #Woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: My local Do it best (Beisswenger’s) is pretty good for small metal hardware too. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: For the work I do now I use: #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @dividedlight do you have a link to the House of Antique Hardware? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 Set aside a savings account or a jar or someplace to squirrel away a few bucks here and there when you get paid. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 I would complete jobs with the tools I had and invest something from each payment. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68¬†self sustaining¬†(sales fund tools), but started not from scratch, per se, but with a well-equipped hobbyist’s shop. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @imaginer99 Yeah shipping can be a bummer. Sometimes more than $10 for a $1 part. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Mc Feely’s¬†can be¬†proud with their stuff, but they have sales sometimes,. I get their sq drive wood screws and pocket screws #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68¬†I should say, I don’t live off the shop income, my wife works and I have good savings from prior¬†work #woodchat

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 excellent window and door hinges as well as locksets #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @sduffy68¬†Be very careful not to get caught up buying “novelty” tools & gadgets. Spend money on useful tools as you need them. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I lbuy with free shipping RT @benjamenjohnson: @imaginer99 Yeah shipping can be a bummer. Sometimes more than $10 for a $1 part. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: #woodchat has a great selection of knobs and pulls from antique to modern. I always look there first.

@dividedlight: @MansFineFurn¬†I do but it’s a pretty low standard of living. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat forgot the tag. Horton is good. A CT business. Also like Sanderson for knife hinges. Those rock.

@MansFineFurn: for reproduction stuff I like hortons: #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat favorite place for pulls: my lathe and a chunk of cocobolo.

@MansFineFurn: @dividedlight¬†I think you’ve been at it a bit longer than me, but I hope one day to make it self sustaining¬†#woodchat

@Tooltutor: @sduffy68¬†#woodchat¬†I justify¬†every major tool purchase with a project(s) that I’d save money on by doing it myself. No “extra” funding then

@MansFineFurn: RT @MKatFWW: #woodchat favorite place for pulls: my lathe and a chunk of cocobolo. @MKatFWW: #woodchat taking a DT break. Bake shortly.

@benjamenjohnson: Cool. Horton brasses has a list of hardware shown in magazines and TV shows #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @thewoodninja novelty tools are a problem, particularly when your are to new to recognize them from important tools. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor¬†Yeah, that’s how I convince my wife to let me buy a lot of stuff too. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I will have to check out Hortons #woodchat

@dividedlight: @MansFineFurn¬†I will add that I most likely wouldn’t have health insurance if my wife didn’t have a job with benefits. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68¬†that’s what you’ve got this community for! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @dividedlight:I will add that I most likely wouldnt¬†have health insurance if my wife didnt¬†have a job with benefits @thewoodninja: @sduffy68¬†Don’t ever be afraid to ask. There are a lot of great guys here willing to help. ShopNotes¬†magazine is a great buy too. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson¬†You’re a pro Ben. I doubt there’s much convincing required anymore. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn¬†DOH! How foolish of me. Just let me know I ‘m overkill before I wear out my welcome. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: RT @MansFineFurn: as far as HW, I’m a big fan of Lee Valley, but for specialty stuff I also use Horton Brasses #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @thewoodninja¬†I’ve let my woodworking magazine subscriptions lapse…but looking at the ShopNotes¬†website, maybe I’ll reconsider #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @thewoodninja¬†@sduffy68¬†This group’s definitely not shy about steering newbies clear of impractical buys. Just ask. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: No worries @sduffy68¬†we’re all here to talk and learn from each other in #woodchat

@thewoodninja: I just wish #woodchat was around back 14 years ago when I got started. You guys are the best!

@MansFineFurn: RT @thewoodninja: I just wish #woodchat was around back 14 years ago when I got started. You guys are the best! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson¬†It’s still one of my favorites. I also have WoodSmith, Wood, and Woodworker’s Journal. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: First question, are the $10 honing guides sufficient for the beginner or do I need to blow $70 on the Veritas? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor¬†Actually, I’m always hesitant to pull the trigger on a big purchase, my wife usually ends up convincing me. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @DavidJUlschmid¬†still on twitter for now. I’m just briefly popping in. It’s mostly moderator-less hardware talk tonight. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @thewoodninja¬†those are all the ones I’ve given up on, except maybe wood. I’ve only kept FWW¬†and PW. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat surprised and humbled =)

@imaginer99: @sduffy68¬†Looking back, I wish I didn’t buy the veritas and just learned to hold it properly. #Woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 Chris Schwartz just posted an articel about tuning a cheap honing guide: #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @MansFineFurn I hear you. To me one of the best things to spend subscription $$ on is the FWW website. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 I tried a bunch, cheap and expensive, decided freehand was best Рquicker, easier, and cheaper (just lock that wrist) #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Evening all #woodchat

@dividedlight: @MansFineFurn I like PW, wish I had more time to build the projects. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hello @BillGriggs how are you.? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @thewoodninja Amen to the FWW website (I have a perpetual subscription) and their cooking and homebuilding sites too! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: The downside of making a living in the shop is my lack of time to build just for fun. Most extra $ replaces bits, blades, & tools. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @sduffy68¬†wait for the upcoming honing guide from @Woodpeckers_Inc it’ll last a lifetime & be worth every premium penny. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: My favorite magazine is Woodwork. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: RT @MansFineFurn¬†@thewoodninja¬†those are all the ones I’ve given up on, except maybe wood. I’ve only kept FWW¬†and PW. #woodchat¬†@benjamenjohnson: @thewoodninja¬†I used to subscribe to Wood, I liked the tool comparisons, but I didn’t really like the projects. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: There are a lot of great woodworking magazines FWW, PW , Shop Notes… #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @BillGriggs¬†‘evening, Bill. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat I don’t subscribe to any mags, but I do get one for free! The others I read at work.

@dividedlight: For sure! RT @thewoodninja: The downside of making a living in the shop is my lack of time to build just for fun. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 if you have a benchgrinder, a hollow grind really helps hold a free-hand honing angle easily #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson¬†I really feel the same but my wife made a payment¬†twice without me knowing. I’m in for at least 3 more years! #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @sduffy68 I started with the $10 variety. Works fine. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr¬†That’s good too, picked it up Sat. on your recommendation. Not a lot of my style of work, but inspiring indeed #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @DyamiPlotke¬†Evening. What’s are you working on? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @DyamiPlotke Do you have a link for the honing guide? #woodchat

@dividedlight: Anyone do a major project on their own house? Like build a whole kitchen? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW hiring? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW hiring? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Hey #woodchat sorry I’m late!

@HighRockWW: Hey #woodchat sorry I’m late!

@WoodworkGuy: Fancy that… ūüėČ RT @MKatFWW: #woodchat I don’t subscribe to any mags, but I do get one for free! The others I read at work.

@DJOfurnituremkr: I tend to side sharpen 98% of the time so it’s easy to hold a flat bevel. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @dividedlight I am right now. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MKatFWW @sduffy68. I have a cheap $10 honing guide. It works just fine except for when the concave jaw gets in the way. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hey @HighRockWW Good evening #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @dividedlight coming up this summer РKitchen. I just did a big addition in 07-08 which enabled my new shop (among other things) #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Oops meant convex #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @MansFineFurn¬†ha! I didn’t mention all the work I do too. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @dividedlight I just replaced a tub and shower without ripping apart the rest of the bathroom. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Small side note. If any of u have a FB fan page, drop me a message. I’m trying to get the word out about everyone’s pages. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr¬†By side sharpen, you mean freehand with strokes parallel to the blade, correct? That’s what I meant by freehand #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson¬†Isn’t that what Schwartz addressed in his recent blog article #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW¬†I’m not work averse #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @thewoodninja should we do it again in this forum? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat isn’t showing up automatically tonight. Odd.

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68¬†Exactly, I just haven’t followed his guide yet. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight¬†That’s when I hire someone else. #Ihatehomeimprovement¬†#woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: I like some of the industry mags, like Woodshop News. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW are you here: #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @MansFineFurn¬†Nah. Let’s not clog up #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @thewoodninja¬†Here’s mine thanks for doing the compilation #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @thewoodninja¬†I still haven’t figured out what to do with my facebook¬†page besides link to my posts. what are you planning? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I’m sure she’ll love it @HighRockWW¬†#woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn Here is a link. I took a class with Harrelson years ago: #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson Really just want to start by getting everyone a few fans/likes to start. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @MansFineFurn #woodchat no on my iPhone. Using the search feature of twitter app.

@HighRockWW: @WoodworkGuy¬†Thanks…I added BB’s to the inside so that it rattles. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson That why I asked about the guides. I had been drooling over the Veritas, but Schwartz article made me think. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @HighRockWW Looks great Chris! That project may outlive us both. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr¬†I think that’s a yes, I’ll redirect to @sduffy68, since it was his original question… #woodchat

@MKatFWW: Now I’m there #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @MKatFWW @MansFineFurn my iphone is dead tonight but I find that is the best way for me to participate in #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor¬†Thanks! Hopefully everyone will be able to see the “Likes” on my page for a sort of master list. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 I love the veritas guide system. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 I built a gauge to make mounting my chisels consistent, but I have to fuss more than I should getting it tightened down #woodchat

@imaginer99: @HighRockWW that is a great present! I am going to try and remember that for my upcoming daughter! #Woodchat

@MKatFWW: Time to transfer tails. To drawer front. Back later. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn I think there is some info on the web as well if a search is made. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson¬†@thewoodninja¬†FB’s a good place to post things u’d¬†likely also tweet about but have a longer shelf life #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn @DJOFurnituremkr Thanks I may get the video #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @imaginer99 I will be posting a blog post about it in the next week and will have a Google SketchUp pattern for download. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr dale, my question was just whether the side method is freehand, side to side (I learned from Phil Lowe, same way #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor @benjamenjohnson True. And no matter how I feel about it, some people just prefer it to Twitter & Google+. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor and not limited to 140 character sentence-like blurbs #woodchat

@imaginer99: @HighRockWW That would be great! #Woodchat

@HighRockWW: @imaginer99 The pattern should make it easier to duplicate. I am make one for each of my daughters. #woodchat

@dividedlight: Does anyone think G+ will be the favorite platform and FB will decline? #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Off Topic Twitter??? If I want to switch account names to match my blog is there a less painful way? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor¬†Funny that’s what I use G+ for. I have so much more interaction on G+ than Facebook #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight One can only hope! #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: I don’t want to loss current followers, etc. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn Got ya, yes free hand. I think jigs are to complicated and keep users from developing a natural skill. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @sduffy68¬†Don’t think there’s a less painful way. I lost quite¬†a few when I created my @woodninja¬†account. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr agreed #woodchat

@dividedlight: @thewoodninja¬†I’m relatively new to twitter but I like it. FB’s quality seems to be¬†declining. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68¬†I think twitter’s help section had a bit on this, not sure how you maintain¬†followers other than aggressive announcement #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 Are you asking about twitter? just go here and change it. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @dividedlight¬†not without some major changes. G+ fails in the sense it’s not a good platform for 3rd party developers #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight I feel the same way. Twitter also seems like the perfect platform for quick interaction from the shop. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DJOfurnituremkr @MansFineFurn I agree, I tried to make a jig to learn to help crosscut with a handsaw. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DJOfurnituremkr¬†@MansFineFurn¬†in the end 30 days of cutting 10 cuts a day by hand did the trick… #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @thewoodninja @benjamenjohnson Agreed. FB is definitely still the most widely used and accepted. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Anyone ever done inlays? #woodchat

@dividedlight: @Tooltutor¬†I opened a G+ account because I thought woodchat¬†was headed¬†there. I haven’t done anything with it otherwise. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @MansFineFurn #woodchat definitely a good balance between short tweets and long blog posts.

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor @benjamenjohnson Hence my plight to spread the word about our fan pages. Basically all I do is mirror my Google+ posts #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs¬†some inlays, hope to get into more when I’m done with non-inlay commissions! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @dividedlight I did that same thing. After it not working last week, I never went back. #Woodchat is my only circle.

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson Thanks for the suggestion. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68¬†I don’t think you lose any followers if you change your username, many articles suggest registering your old name again #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat complete opposite for me. No interactions at all on G+. No one I know uses it. Still on fb

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight¬†There are lot’s of great users to follow there. Awesome amounts of info available & it’s getting better. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Got to go guy’s. See you next week. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: G+ and FB – different beasts so far. G+ developing quickly. Never met anyone in my G+ circles, few in my FB friends I’ve not met #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson¬†Painless, thats¬†what I am talking about!!! You’re da man!!! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @dividedlight Find Al Navas on G+ and then his woodworkers circle post. Add that circle. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @BillGriggs¬†I’m working on a frame for Christmas. #woodchat What are you working on?

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor Just go to my Google+ page & look at the people in my circles. Most of the guys here. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I find FB less “noisy” maybe because i¬†don’t use G+ as intended, (anyone know what the intended use IS?). Still learing it. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @MansFineFurn¬†I want to do a chess board and don’t know what glue to use. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @benjamenjohnson¬†@dividedlight¬†or my G+, I have Al’s list, i¬†can share woodworking list with whomever wants it #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @HighRockWW looks great. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Yeah! What @benjamenjohnson¬†said! Check out Al’s page! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @MansFineFurn¬†seems the whole¬†internet jury’s still out on that question #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs inlay? or veneer? #woodchat

@dividedlight: @BillGriggs because the squares have two sides of end grain? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: Transferred tails and cut the pins. Now clean out sockets. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @MKatFWW try tweetdeck & a #woodchat column.

@MKatFWW: My favorite social platform is a rocking porch w/whiskey. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor¬†@MansFineFurn¬†This whole internet thingy is just a fad ūüôā #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DyamiPlotke Thanks. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: RT @dividedlight Does anyone think G+ will be the favorite platform and FB will decline? #woodchat RT @MKatFWW: My favorite social platform is a rocking porch w/whiskey. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MKatFWW Pour me a shot I am all in! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson¬†@MansFineFurn¬†#woodchat Oh good…I’ll just ignore it until it goes away. Save me the trouble of figuring it out. =P

@WoodworkGuy: Hello @woodbard. Great to see you at #woodchat tonight

@DyamiPlotke: @DJOfurnituremkr goodnight, Dale. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed¬†Is that you @sduffy68? I’ll follow you now #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @woodbard Glad u made it Al. #woodchat

@woodbard: @thewoodninja thanks Kenny and Jeff! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: + 2 RT @MKatFWW: My favorite social platform is a rocking porch w/whiskey. #woodchat

@woodbard: @DyamiPlotke @dividedlight Although the jury is still out, G+ is gaining and getting better, much better. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson Anyone ever run hardwood flooring through a planer? Is the alumina oxide coating harsh on the blades? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: Alright my fingers are cold. But it’s warmed up to 52.5 in the shop. See ya next time. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @woodbard is the Google+ Godfather of the Woodworking circle! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @WVWoodshed¬†Many articles say you should register your old name so somebody doesn’t poach it. Just sayin. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: we did Hardware, other proposed topics were ‘how much handwork/what level of detail can you do and still be profitable #woodchat

@woodbard: @MKatFWW Good night, Matt. Sorry I missed so much of the dialog. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: I am considering purchasing chisels one per pay pay check in order to purchase higher quality. Are Two-Cherries the route to go? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor¬†YES don’t do it! #woodchat

@woodbard: @thewoodninja LOL Рthanks, Kenny! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor¬†…or just junk the blades when you’re done #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor¬†I haven’t, but It can’t be¬†good! My neighbor ran all his deck boards through a planer to refresh the surface though #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @MKatFWW Happy dovetails Matt Have a good one. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed I saw a set of 8 Stanley Sweethearts on sale for 199 (highland?) that looks like a great deal for a darned good chisel #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @Tooltutor¬†I ran it through my table saw and while my blade isn’t the best I could definitely tell it was duller from the effort. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard @MKatFWW Awesome! Looks like #woodchat went on without the management. Thanks guys!! Anyone possibly record this? If so, pm me

@Tooltutor: @MansFineFurn Was hoping not to have to sand off the coating. Sandpaper is cheaper than blades tho #woodchat thx for verifying

@benjamenjohnson: @WVWoodshed¬†Two Cherries are nice, but if you’re going all out why not Lie Nielson? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat thanks everyone.

@woodbard: @Tumblewood @MKatFWW Just got here, Vic. I missed most of it. But looks like it WAS terrific! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: I gotta go guys. It was a great #woodchat tonight. Thanks to all!

@WoodworkGuy: It has been another good #woodchat session

@Tumblewood: Just to let you know. Did a bit of mod on the Triton and great DC!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood¬†I got ya covered Vic…was there ever any doubt? #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Terrific, Vic Рcongrats!!! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @WVWoodshed¬†No you will get tired of waiting. Send them to me to hold for you till you have a complete set. ūüėČ #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn Yup @sduffy68 is now @WVWoodshed #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Good night, Kenny #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Take care @thewoodninja Have a good one #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Gotta help put the kids to bed goodnight all! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat wishful thinking slight wear became epic lore

@woodbard: @benjamenjohnson¬†See you, Ben. Hug the kids ūüôā #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Take care @benjamenjohnson #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Everyone Amend your Follow List: RT @WVWoodshed: Yup @sduffy68 is now @WVWoodshed #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WVWoodshed¬†#woodchat¬†Maybe that shouldn’t be the first thing I run through my new planer.

@WoodworkGuy: Wil do. RT @MansFineFurn: Everyone Amend your Follow List: RT @WVWoodshed: Yup @sduffy68 is now @WVWoodshed #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @Tumblewood How are you liking the Triton? I love mine! #woodchat

@woodbard: @HighRockWW @Tumblewood What was the mod? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor¬†what kind of planer? If it’s the same as mine, I’ll send you the old blades! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: #woodchat Thanks again for another great chat everyone. Don’t have to wait until next week to chat me up.

@WoodworkGuy: Have a good one @Tooltutor #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood¬†between you and @DyamiPlotke, and @theboisshop, I’m going to end up buying all new stuff (tritons,Festool, etc)!! #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson not sure about what going all out for LNs would run me. Just at $25-$30 each Two-Cherries would be in the budget. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard¬†Yea, just did a quick mortise…barely any spewed bits and pieces.#woodchat

@HighRockWW: @Tooltutor¬†Have a good evening…and same to you. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @Tumblewood Glad you are happy with it. #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Terrific, Vic! Congratulations. It looks like @theboisshop was spot on!!! #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @BillGriggs¬†I get right on finding out the shipping cost, now whats that zip code??? ūüėČ #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed¬†the LN’s are double that. The Stanley SW’s I mentioned are same style as LN, also about $25/ and well reviewed #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard¬†And I had the worst case scenario for length of 2 1/2″ hose, etc. So, yes, VERY happy! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard of course. I hardly ever use the shop vac #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood¬†THAT’s even better. Too much of the small-diameter hose can kill efficiency. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed¬†here, I found it: check those out… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Well, tomorrow, either cut my DT for the end cap of the Roubo, or start milling my stretchers. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn¬†Seems I saw a chisel review/test where the Stanley’s came slightly behind the Two-Cherries. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard¬†yes, I used 15-18’ of it. #woodchat

@woodbard: #woodchat Good night everyone. Get some good rest, and be safe.

@Tumblewood: @woodbard¬†G’nite¬†Al! Night all!! #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood WOW! Glad it worked so well, Vic. Can get quite lossy Рbut that is terrific! #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Good night. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @woodbard Take care Al. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @woodbard Good night Al! #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Time for me to call it a night too #woodchat !

@WoodworkGuy: I’m heading out as well. Take care all #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn Dang, maybe I need to rethink this for about the third time. Thanks for the info!!! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @HighRockWW Take care Chris. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @WoodworkGuy you too Jeff. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: All the best to everyone this week!!! Remember… #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Keep your mind on your fingers and your fingers on your hands… Peace!!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed Schwarz reviewed the stanleys, and seemed to like them as did @MKatFWW, I think? 2cherries-tanged, stanleys-socket. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Goodnight all, @Tumblewood, I’ll send you the transcript, (if i¬†can remember how. ) #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn explain difference in tanged vs sockets. I know what tangs are, just not the difference. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: a bit of personal preference I think. Tanged¬†need the ferrule to keep it together they want to split the handle when pounded on… #woodchat
