I've hand cut dove tails before but nothing like that. That's crazy! I guess old honest Abe developed more complicated jointery skills after this mallet.

That's a heck of a thing. It looks like something you'd use to battle zombies.

I believe it's the oldest known artifact attributed to Lincoln, still owned by the family he supposedly gave it to and they think it's worth a zillion bucks

Pretty cool, and undoubtedly worth some money, but lots of folks seem to over-value what they've got whether it's Lincoln's woodworking mallet or a used 1987 Chrysler Lebaron full of rust, dents, bad paint and a horrible interior.

I used to own 'John Oates Porsche'

Back to woodworking, can anyone recommend a brand of pouring epoxy? The reviews on Amazon are all over the place.

Wow, Japanese planing competition. I've always loved looking at Japanese woodworking and joints that they create.
In some of these it looks like they've created material to make lady's stocking.

The IWF is held alternating years here in Atlanta. It was scheduled hear for August - and was a go until only about 3 weeks prior and they pulled the plug. I have attended every event here since about 1998 or so.

They use to be here in Anaheim, which is about 45 min away, back in the mid to late 80s when I was a teenager. I made up a company name and was able to get in that way for all those years. They moved to eventually moved to Vegas like every conventions. I sign up to go every few years, or when possible. Its fun to just get away to see all the latest and greatest but after a few times, they are all the same.

Are you also in the business?

Mainly a hobbyist but have been tinkering for over 35 years now. I built a 2300 sq ft shop on our property to house my equipment.

Very nice.

I'm still trying to get everything out to our new place and start working on getting my tools ready and making the shop useful. Too much honey-do stuff so far.

I did get some of my old tools out of storage and moved out to the shop. In addition to what Look171 gave me (router and shoulder/rabbet), I also have a Stanley block plane (apparently, one that's not terribly desirable) and a Stanley "Handyman" smoothing plane (also, not desirable) and a handful of old Stanley chisels that are in dire need of attention. I've got a diamond plate with 2 grits and a cheap Chinese honing guide so I can get the planes and chisels sharp. I'm sure that once I get the planes tuned up, they'll work even though the two that I had aren't the most desirable models. I haven't picked up many of the power tools yet.

I have some old "barn wood" (some is literally from an old barn and some is from a fence) that I plane to turn into a ramp for our dachshund to get up and down from the porch. I also plan to take some of that wood to build a compost heap. There's some wood laying around that I'm going to use to build a couple/few saw horses. Jonathan Katz-Moses built some that were interesting. They seem sturdy and they stack. I may build those. Then Chris Schwarz had what he called a "sawbench" at the end of his book an workbenches that was interesting. It's really short (the distance from the ground to the bottom of your kneecap, so probably ~18").

Why do I feel like I really need to build this table?

Dunno, there must be something wrong with you. The rest of us just want to bang that chick sitting next to it.

I've been frustrated, I haven't been able to get started on my shop, workbench build or even sharpening my planes/chisels. Between honey-do stuff (that's not yet complete), cold weather, fixing burst plumbing (this weekend), moving to the property (next week) and then our son getting married on the property the week after, I haven't even started working on the stuff that I want to do. Hopefully, in about 3 weeks I'll be able to start.

I don't know why, but I want a jointers or jack (#7 or #6) plane. I'm sure that I don't need one, but I want one. I suspect it's going to be a pain to find a decent metal one for a reasonable price (for something that I don't really need) so I've been thinking I can probably find an inexpensive old wooden plane. Then, how hard could it be to "tune-up?"
