Free BowlSaw to four woodturners with no obligation...

05-09-2009 08:13 PM by Steuss | 6 comments »

My welder done me wrong and made several 6” BowlSaws undersize. They would be perfect for those who like to work miniatures. I’m giving them (4) to the first four woodturners who contact me. I’m saving one for myself for special projects. All I ask is that the requester give me an honest answer as to what his evaluation is of the tool. Contact me at or check I’m having fun with the tool and learn new things about wood every day. Dick

Dial Indicator Calipers

07-17-2015 02:18 PM by Texcaster | 3 comments »

These are my new dial indicator calipers, not the prettiest thing I’ve ever made but very serviceable. From StewMac they cost US $135. With my unfavorable exchange rate and shipping, they would be WELL over AU $200. I have AU $40 invested in this one. These might look a little over built but the timber arm flex is a consideration. I’ve included shots of my first rubber band rise and fall calipers, the arm flex had to be minimised by clamping a small rail across the arms. I ...

new ideas #4: Really, I am almost ready

03-29-2011 12:50 AM by JoeyG | 4 comments »

I have finished the tile floor in the bathroom, tomorrow I will install the toilet and cabinets and replace all the trim in the bedroom and bathroom. I still have a couple of doors to hang but since we haven’t purchased them yet, they will have to wait. What does that mean? It means I get to start making saw dust instead of sheetrock dust. I stopped by the woodworking store in my area today after we took returned some unused tile to the big orange box. I picked up 2 shorts. One o...

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on sanders because I have gotten a lot of questions about them. There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders. Palm sanders vibrate back and forth and you can get in corners with them because the bottom of the sander is a square shape. Random orbit sanders spin and vibrate and you get a really polishe...

Muppets do woodwork #4: 2 steps forward, 2 steps backward

07-12-2011 07:02 PM by KnickKnack | 0 comments »

Thor was OK – too much cgi and not enough acting for my taste. That and the theatre was hot, and it was too loud. Anyways we stayed in town last night, did a whole bunch of shopping, so I only got into the “shop” at about 3, so not much could be done.But, no matter, there’s not much left to do.First I checked if any of my existing handles would hack it… This one of oak (yet to be fumed) and ash… I actually quite like that – it stands above t...

#1 I got it bad!

02-18-2014 05:24 AM by jstefan | 16 comments »

Well here I am at work, thinking about woodworking and I decided to write about my experience a little bit thus far. My story may be like many others, or perhaps not. Actually I have no idea because I don’t know many other woodworkers so I’m not sure how everyone began. For me I was laying around my house watching TV with my mom who was visiting from Las Vegas just before Thanksgiving. I was just casually looking at ads from all the major stores for some good Black Friday dea...

I took some new pictures of my shop. (More on my site) They are all in the shop section on my blog. The old ones were taken with my cell phone, so the quality was not the best. Still working out a few things with my blog (trying to get some things with Google search worked out). I’m having trouble getting this site to show up in Google search. Hope to get this stuff worked out soon. If anyone can help it would be grately appreaciated. Also, I have been editing away, I have taped a...

With the holidays over and the house starting to return to normal I took the time to edit some more video on the essential oil cabinet I made for my son for Christmas. A lot of hand work over a lot of days, and a long time to edit it too. View on YouTube

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #29: Drawers: Planed, Pared and Hung

04-07-2017 05:32 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

HAND PLANES AND PARING CHISEL USED TO GET PROUD JOINTS FLUSH TO DRAWER PART SURFACES For those that have followed my blog entries for this project, my last entry was a few weeks ago. Back then I had witnessed that my drawers seemed to be too wide, but after further measurements and inspection my drawers were just very tight. I needed to pare or make flush the proud dovetail joints on the corners of these drawer boxes. I have not worked in my shop for three weeks because I have bee...
