I called the contact us number on Lee Valley’s website to ask about any promotions such as free shipping. Immediately I was told free shipping was available now and would I like to place an order? I had been watching the website to see if that or any other promotion would be offered now near the hoildays. Just goes to show that it pays to ask and to have your order ready to go. Mine is on it’s way freight-free! I posted here to reach other lumberjocks who may want the same thin...

From my blog: I want to share with you this terrific session, which I captured on video and is now available on my blog for dwonload. Deneb Puchalski, of Lie-Nielsen Toolworks, was the leader for this hands-on clinic. In addition to video I took several photos; the following gives you a sense of the setting: Thanks!
Some time back, I was finally able to pick up a Disston dovetail saw. If I remember correctly, these are rare animals out in the wild to some extent, and I paid more than I really wanted to. Again, this was a while back so I may be remembering this wrong. I do remember it being a pain in the butt trying to snag one off eBay. This difficulty of finding decent vintage saws at reasonable prices, coupled with the cost of new dovetail saws that are worth a flip, have been one of the driving ...

Kind of slow going here as I design the Table Saw cabinet just the way I want it. I’ve been trying to find a zero clearance insert for the table saw, but have been unsuccessful since it’s so old and Craftsman has since changed their inserts. I finally found one online, but it was $20 + shipping and handling. I remember seeing an episode of New Yankee Workshop (one of my favorites) that showed making a zero clearance insert from wood and a flush router bit. So instead I dro...

This is the piece I turned this evening. It is some very green maple. By the time I was finishing it up, it started getting hairline cracks all over it. This is one of the risks you take turning green wood. I decided to take a picture of it. After all it might last longer.
