Craigslist Score! New 9" Craftsman Bench Drill Press

1688 days ago by Russ | 12 comments »

Well I was able to get a new looking and very gently used Craftsman 9” bench top drill press for a mere $30. I was so stoked to get it. No projects to work with it on yet but I immediately went out to the garage and found some scrap to drill holes in. It’s kinda like being a kid at Christmas scoring a deal on Craigslist.

Wood Talk Online #67

1644 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 3 comments »

I don’t know how many folks are aware of our little audio podcast, Wood Talk Online, but I figured I would post it here at Lumberjocks once in a while. The show usually contains industry news, voicemails, sweet deals, community happenings, and a whole lot of “shop talk”. We also do the show live and have a bustling chat room that tends to distract us now and then. :) Check it out! Download MP3 Questions or Comments? You can get a hold of us by either dropping us an ema...

The "What am I doing?" Holtzapffel Workbench #4: Final glue up of top

1627 days ago by DragonLady | 6 comments »

I ended up discarding one piece of the top as too rough to deal with. So I’ve got 19 pieces glued up, at a width of 28 1/4”. I think that will work very well. My first glue up (of any size!) and I think I did ok. Did it piecemeal, adding a board or two every 30 mins or so. Just got the final pieces on, and I am going to leave it clamped over night to cure. This is my first time ever using pipe clamps. Holy cow do those things exert some pressure!! I didn’t use...

With all these new power tools, why do we still measure in the dark ages?

1603 days ago by technicallymark | 51 comments »

Quick, which is bigger, 5/16th or 11/32nd? Having trouble? Try this. Which one is bigger 10 or 12? Easy right? I’m all about easy and trying to remember how to convert fractions isn’t really something I want my brain working on with spinning sharp blades around. I’m not sure why we can’t be like the rest of the world and use “metric” for measuring, but it would make life a little easier in the shop. I might be a little biased since I have formal e...

What Type of finish do you use? Finishing is a common question among woodworkers. I know for me when I first started finishing it was almost dreadful. I loved to build things but when it came to finishing I almost wanted to leave it bare wood. I built a oak dart board, I guess you could call it a case several years back and when it came time to finish it I ruined it. I applied two many coats two fast and didn’t take the propper steps to apply a quality finish. When it was done I thr...
