New Dovetail Saw from Rob Cosman - 10 replies

This is repost from my blog. These days it seems like everyone is coming out with a new Dovetail Saw. Now Rob Cosman - “The Dovetail Master” has thrown his hat into the ring.

Remember to clean your tools - 18 replies

Last week I was using the plane to shoot some boards, and the rust was right where the palm of my hand was on the plane! Needless to say, I didn’t clean the tools I use...

Tool Tune Up - 6 replies

I bought a new Grizzly 14” band saw at the end of last year. I finally got around to tuning it up. I did the whole 9 yards on it, it took me most of a day. I set it up to test resawing. I sliced off a nice 1/32” piece of veneer, and that was with the cheap blade that came with! I can’t wait to see what it will do with a ni...
