This one is pretty self explanatory. A hold down jig that can be used for countless items. Joint one edge of pallet wood. Hold down hard to hold items to make angled cuts. Or anything else you can think of. There is a 3” x 3” grid of hold down locations offering a lot of flexibility. I actually used it to make some of its parts.

Well – I spent the day yesterday finishing up the other version of the little cookie cutter animal basket that I showed you a couple of days ago. The first version (pictured above) was done using the new DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints, and I thought it would be a wonderful gift for a baby or even Easter. I loved the soft, pastel colors and I thought they looked really beautiful. The other version however is really different. It just goes to show how much a little paint can chan...
Well, I’m up late as usual , researching old ideas that will inspire me, and put me on course fornew ground breaking ideas in furniture design .

Well the progress of my final project has once again been postponed and modified to better accommodate my for the third marking period; as I need to diligently work on my pine box…. Which I will post a final picture of to display that I at least accomplished something productive for woodworking while given the time to do so… As in comparison to my usual study hall or eating session haha.. Sorry santucci also I have had other personal affairs that have prevented me from getting my ...
Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like. I don’t have a planer or really any good hand tools yet (I borrow my grandfather’s tools, but even his are limited in the hand tool department). My firs...
“Popping” curly maple is something I’ve wanted to try for some time, so I decided to test it on drawer fronts for a slant cabinet I built last year. My buddies at O-P Hardwood were out of curly maple so I ended up using curly maple veneer. The aniline dye I chose was W.D. Lockwood Early American Maple Yellow from Tools for Working Wood. There are great instructions for the preparation and use of this dye on the web site. The main two things I’d emphasize are: (1) use hot, distilled wat...
One of the arguments I’ve seen is about whether people should really trust the electronics. For better or worse, that ship has already sailed. We already know that we put our lives on the line every time we hop in a car. Although our safety is largely dependent on our own actions as drivers and the actions of other people, modern safety systems such as anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control improve your chances of avoiding or surviving an accident. In the ideal situation,...
So a coworker of mine decided to be generous, but not in the way I would have liked… this colleague decided to come to work sick, and share the joy as it were.. Now I am out, although working remotely, and feeling pretty miserable… The good that did come from this is I managed to spend some quality time with the doc, and finally got them to run some Xrays. I honestly think there is something wrong with my shoulder. I have been trying to lose weight, but I can’t do a whole...
There are a lot of debates swirling around the Internet when it comes to SawStop. You’ve got technology, political lobbying, lawsuits, and violence. Then there’s the limited liability entity—is the founder a greedy overlord, benevolent finger savior, or something in between? In the hands of the right script writer, you could have a pretty intense TV drama or movie. But we don’t have script writers here, so instead we have endless debate. Ughh…. I myself hav...
I am practicing on the making of what some call a Osolnik Style Rolling Pin—Laminated rolling pins with multiple woods. I have read a number of references on the how-to but still struggle with the details of the diagonal cut vs the width of the blank. Any insights would be of value.
