1  Irish Hardwood Timber / Getting started / Re: Joining boards on: 30 August, 2006, 23:33
Buscuits can also show on end grain if the boards have to be cut after gluing up. Be careful where you put them!
I saw Norm Abrahms on New Yankee Workshop simply run the boards on the jointer and glue straight away without using either!

I find B&Q liffey valley ok. They have a Trade section which stocks pro quality tools at reasonable prices and a Diy section which is particularly good for Routers such as Trend, Bosch etc.

I could not agree more. The main attraction of Irish wood is not because it is Irish. It is because it is local and traceable and has travelled the shortest distance to get here. The lisnavagh project is extremely usefull to any woodworker dealing with hardwoods in Ireland. Particularly in my own case, I can say that without lisnavagh I would not have completed my first project (a carved rocking horse). I arrived at Williams doorstep with a cutting list. I was unfamilier with standard sizes widths etc. I received remarkable personal advice and assistence from William to the extent of wood being cut down to fit in the boot of my car.
It is also surprising the effect on people when you can show them the tree that the horse was carved from.
