Boarded Bookcase Done
Joshua finished his bookcase (right) and has been kind enough to share. It looks great and has apparently been such a hit around the house that he might have to make some more…
Removing lacquer from brass
Anyone know of a good way to remove lacquer from brass? As always, the less elbow grease required the better. (Some is expected though…)
Borate-treated lumber for workbench?
Jonathan just moved to Hawaii and is looking for wood to build his workbench. It turns out that anything larger than a 2×4 is green treated. He is wondering if borate-treated lumber would work. Any thoughts?
Words of Advice?
Have you ever had a project go so wrong that there is no way to salvage it? Daniel feels your pain and is looking for motivation. What keeps you going when you feel like hours have gone down the drain?
A Boarded Campaign Chest?
The same Joshua of boarded bookcase fame (above) is making a chest of drawers and needs to do it as quickly as possible. In order to save time his solution is to rabbet and nail the sides and tops of each carcase box together. Will this work? What would you do?
