From my blog: Ahhh… Nostalgia time! Hopefully this will give some people who use hand tools a little different perspective. I had a lot of fun producing this video! One of the things that crossed my mind several times during the conference, and I keep repeating to myself, is “… they used nothing but these types of tools all those years ago…” And it was wonderful to see in one place so many enthusiastic woodworkers and tool makers, artists and craftsmen at the top of their careers! En...
Hi, my name is John. I’m 37 and live in Nelson, New Zealand. I own a busy pharmacy (www.hardystreetpharmacy.co.nz) and have three children so unfortunately don’t get much time woodworking. When I do get some time I want to build a bench. As I’ve discovered, its not easy without one!! Most of my previous woodworking was functional – renovating two houses and basic MDF joinery. When we sold our last house I got rid of a lot of my power tools (which were well used). ...
Hello everyone, I have a small workbench and several tools, scroll saw, router table, dovetail jig, etc. Right now I am clamping these to the workbench as needed, I can spend a couple hours in the shop and most of it is spent moving tools back and forth. What do you all do for these tools. I was thinking of a long table down one side of the room to bolt these down to on a permanant basis but spacing between the tools could be a problem. The other option I guess would be a portable stand ...
I attended Day 2 of the Woodworks Event (Novi, Michigan; outside of Detriot). The show is very small, but I did encounter one vendor that was of great interest… Bill Bush of Bush Products Inc (along with Lakeshore Hardwoods). Bill gave a very good talk on the stages of sanding and then using oil to finish. I was amazed at the way the PSA (Pressure Sensative Adhesive) Aluminum Oxide paper sanded quickly and efficiently, with very little build up (could just brush away the saw dust). Bill...
Now that he’s arrived, I need to get crackin’ on a crib for our latest addition. As with the cribs I built for Annalise and Sean, I wanted to use an “off the shelf” plan to ensure it complies with the latest safety standards as well as to make it easier to fit it with standard hardware, mattress, etc. In the end, we settled on the “Heirloom Crib” design I had used for my daughter. This one will be built with cherry and walnut and sport some minor changes...

I am looking into a remote control for my dust collection system. I have a Delta 50-760 that is wired for 220v. I am looking at a PSI Woodworking LR220-3 220V Long Ranger. Anyone have experience any remotes?
The second piece that was cut off the #391 burl was the first keeper. I’m looking for what to do with it. My only guess/suggestion is to make a clock with hands and no numbers. Here is the piece. Please offer your suggestions freely. Front (outside) A note on that picture. It has a close resemblence of the country Ireland and my fathers genealogy is traced from Ireland. Back (inside) You get more bark showing on the front view and no bark but the greater amount of burl...
