Since I caught the sawdust bug, I have read many a book and blog, watched many a video and bought many a tool. I have even built some of my tools, and while I am a pretty frugal person, I like to only buy things once and do not like moving up the levels of quality for any given tool. Sometimes this is not possible, and sometimes buying something is either not the most effective, cheapest, or best way to broaden my woodworking skills. While I love working out in my shop, the workbench that ...
I am going to write a quick blog today, because I wanted you all to know that we did a site update yesterday afternoon. We have some new patterns available for you and those who may want to start some new projects over the weekend. Keith has two new patterns this time around.

Hi all,I don’t know if everyone pays attention to the annual contest on LJ’s, but this one I don’t understand. I just can’t figure out what this contest wants us to do.

If that is what this is saying. Can someone please explain what they are asking us for in this contest? Below is ...

Up until now the extension wing to the BT3100 has been a simple two layer 3/4” pine ply lamination. Simply a nice, flat table top. That is all about to change… LOML gave me an early Christmas present of a Bench Dog Pro Plate and Rockler insert template, and I have some Rockler miter track just laying around, so it was time to measure up where I wanted everything, and write is down. 5.25” in from each side, 7” in from the end. Miter slot in 5.5” from the end. ...

I received an email letting me know that my video was used as a reference on WoodWeb.com. I loved the context in which it was used. I enjoyed the thought that my video is “nutritious.” It was referenced in a business forum as an example for using video to train employees. I felt a bit honored that it was chosen.

Was reading one of my favorite tool blogs last week and was intrigued by a post and the challenge it contained. Stuart from Toolguyd posted an article that talked about a Kickstarter campaign for some simple desktop cord keepers called “Stacks” and how it might be a good DIY project.
