Well its been close to four years since any real woodworking has been done by me. There has been a series of shoulder and hand surgeries that have made more than difficult to do anything. I hope soon to be back and making sawdust again.
Jointer fence upgrade for cheap combo machine.Woodstar, Sheppach, Güde, Jet, Ryobi, Titan, Powerplus, Tendotools, Stacionarno. I have had this Woodstar combo machine some years now, it works fine, that’s about what I can say.Since I bought a lunch box thicknesser, I use now only the Woodstar for jointing and that made me tired of the flimsy fence…Really tired, since it is almost impossible to get a piece of wood square with that fence or at least luck and the Gods will agree...

So many of my readers have or or thinking of beginning their own business with their crafts and I thought it would be helpful to them to see that it isn't just days upon days of drawing, painting, doing woodworking and going to the bank to deposit money. There is LOTS of things in between that may not be as fun and rom...
A small mistake has been made when gluing 2 pieces of bench top together while they are still not so dry. As a result both pieces of glued wood then warped a little leaving a 2-4 mm gap. Check out my blog for the solution to this problem. Solution Sam :))
Well, got the top almost flat on the “face side” the other day Used a scrub jack plane to get things down to almost flat, other than all them scalloped areas. Got out a little bit bigger, and wider jack plane. This time, it is used like a try plane, going at the diagonals to the grain, until all them scallops are gone. Top still wanted to bow up a bit, so I clamped that end down flat, and left it sit a while…. Well this evening, flipped the top over to work on t...
