Anchoring a Newel Post

By Randy Maxey Posted: 01/20/2015 9:00AM

I got a call from a family that needed to know how to fix a loose newel post on their stairway. This is the post at the bottom of the stairway that anchors the handrail. It’s a pretty important structural component in the handrail and baluster assembly.


Don’t Be Afraid of Using Hand Tools

By Randy Maxey Posted: 01/18/2015 9:00AM

I remember the day like it was yesterday. I took those first few swipes on a piece of scrap wood and discovered the magic. I was able to get thin, whispy shavings. That day changed my woodworking forever.


Pay Attention During Assembly and Glue-Up

By Randy Maxey Posted: 01/17/2015 9:00AM

I’m in the middle of repairing an antique table. There’s nothing really broken, but most of the joints are loose. So I’m carefully prying apart the old doweled joints and removing the old glue, then reassembling the joint with Titebond wood glue.




5 Principles for Any Woodworking Shop

By Randy Maxey Posted: 01/16/2015 9:00AM

"In coatings, we preach the need to get the coating onto the wood as soon after the final sanding is completed as is absolutely possible. Obviously, as wood is a material that is susceptible to humidity and temperature change, one can see the logic in that concept."


How to Remove Glue Squeeze-Out

By Randy Maxey Posted: 01/15/2015 9:00AM

I remember when I first started woodworking my dad would come up behind me as I was gluing up a project. “Got enough glue on that?,” he’d say. Glue was everywhere. I guess I was afraid of starving the joints of glue. I needn’t have worried with the amount of glue I was using.


Does Wood Sanding Consistency Come From the Belt or the Table

By Adam West Posted: 01/14/2015 4:00PM

Having seen literally thousands of wood sanding processes has taught me humility when I first approach a new customer. Because you never really know what inspired them to do things that, at the outset, may seem silly or counterproductive.
