    How would you all deal with this hole?

    I would use epoxy, tinted with color powder stains, and a little fine sawdust. Practice a bit first to get the color right. OR better yet. I would try to find a small solid knot that matched in color, fit it to the odd shape as best as you can and then glue it in with tinted epoxy. This will...

    This Johnson #120 Heat treat furnace is available locally. Set up with propane, 8 x 8 x 14 interior. 90,000 BTU Asking $500. I have no experience with heat treating (yet). This looks like a good deal to me. How do you regulate temperature with something like this? All comments and...

    The "Unigrinder" WIP - another KISS knife grinder concept

    There are ways to cut those parts out of aluminum with woodworking machines. You could cut the pieces out on a bandsaw, better if you can slow the speed down, but more important to have a fine metal cutting blade. I have cut aluminum and brass on my woodworking bandsaw and table saw. Yes be...
