Nice to see a good woodworking group!  My wife and I  bought our first house back in February, and she has graciously ceded the garage to me, so I'm in the process of getting it set up.  Slow process, and some boxes just vanished in the mover's truck apparently, but hopefully I'll be back up soon.

Really looking forward to building that treadle lathe!

Thanks Liam...good link, this is just what I'm looking for.

John - I've never had a specific need for one, but I see lots of very good plans (some simple, some complex) online. 

This one looks promising - as a proof of concept.

Hi guys! New to woodworking (In Australia), and wondering what tools I should start with, and what sort of timber is good for a beginner?

I'm converting a small room into a workshop, and today I built some cabinetry.  Used a nice birch plywood.

Hey Guys!  I just celebrated my 65th Birthday and with my supportive wife's encouragement, purchased the following item.  It is a W. W. Carey 16" jointer, circa late 19th century.  It came out of a lumber mill in western New Hampshire.  Originally designed for flat belt drive (water wheel, probably), it has a stepped v-belt pulley.  I will get a big honkin' motor to drive it at its rated 4500 RPM.  I am going to try and post two pictures of her!

Outdoorsy/Nature Body Washes

I'm looking for a outdoorsy (think balsam fir, cedar, and juniper, etc) natural body wash or soap that isn't going to break the bank (<$10) and moisturizes skin. The issue that I have with many is that that they still smell chemically despite being advertised as "naturey" (see Old Spice Denali, for example).  Any suggestions?  Thanks.See More
