    Ya I cut a straight log and could not believe the tension in the log -can only imagine the tension in a crooked piece! It actually lifted off of the stickers even with a heavy load onit. BUT it is perfect to power the boiler in my steam boat!

    I've just moved to a new barn and found some Arbutus boards I cut in the nineties! Did I mention I'm a bit of a hoarder :laugh: As far as grain goes it look rather bland. Has anyone ever used Arbutus? Den

    2 part epoxy is pretty common glue, you should be able to find it at any hardware store. It is often sold as "5 minute epoxy" but there are also versions that take longer to cure. When it dries and hardens it is water poof and very hard.

    I have made a cutting board and after I planed I found some little cracks. I have attached some pictures.
    Would like to know how can I secure those cracks and still be food safety. Cracks are only on one side. Did not go through the other side.
    Thank you very much and hope to get an answer from you as soon as possible.

    Thanks Colin!! Started on the bonnet this afternoon. Ordered the works & the dial yesterday. Just a simple atomic movement & a really nice oval dial. It should work well with the opening in the door.

    This is the project I've wanted to make since high school shop class some,,, well,, all those years ago!! :laugh:

    Knotty pine from the local lumber yard. This is very good wood. I picked up 1x12x10 & ripped 2 1/2" off each board edge to get the 1/4 sawn for the frames. Made up some raised panels for the bottom case. Built a jig for the router to make evenly spaced holes for shelf pins on each side for some glass shelves. The little bit of trim you see I made on the router table. Still have the bonnet to build & a lot of sanding & finish work but so far I'm liking what I've got here!!
