Post: RE: Mark Forum REad is not Working

I do something similar. When I finish reading I go to the bottom of the forums and click "Mark all forums read" and that seems to clear the board.  Still be nice if it worked the way it used to.

My guess is that when the bolt and nut were new that they didn't need anything to hold the nut.  Once they got it started on the bolt they could draw it up against the curved side of the mortise with ...

Like Willyou, I used pipe for my lumber rack, black pipe from a local plumbing shop in this case.  I drilled slightly angled holes into pieces of 1.5 X 2.75 lumber edgewise.  Each board sits on the fl...

At first I was thinking a Nicholson workbench, but maybe not with PT lumber.  Then joists for a small shed.  Raised beds wouldn't be a bad idea either.  A hole saw might work.  It wouldn't need to be ...

Elm was used for wheel felloes and naves (hubs) because it's tough.  Also for chair seats because it resists splitting.
