This week I prepared everything to get ready to go paint, unfortunately I could not get the paint yet because I need to go to lowes and get cement for my job but since it’s been raining I couldn’t get a chance to do that. So here I am waiting for a nice day to come along so I can make one trip to lowes

Over the last year, the handsawgeek library has been greatly enhanced by the acquisition of two highly prized additions: Reproductions of the 1908 and 1927 Sears, Roebuck Catalogs. Many a pleasant evening has been spent perusing the pages of these two massive publications and being immersed in a perfect representation of what life might have been like in early 20th century America. Of course, being a hand tool woodworker, I was naturally drawn to the tool pages. The 1908 ...
There are a few things we can be certain of in this world. We have all heard the saying that "the only thing that we can be sure of is death and taxes", but as I get older, I find that something in that quote was left out. . . change.While some of us are uncomfortable with change, others thrive on it. I am not sure where my feelings lie in this equation, but I think they are somewhere in the middle.Change can be scary, as many times change is accompanied by the 'unknown'. Bu...
I’ve been using this DeWalt 1400 for several years after buying it off Craigslist for $70. Never did much to it other than adding a good blade, and a quick-and-dirty table/fence. This year I tore it apart. Reassembled with new motor bearings, some wiring, a major cleanup and repaint, and a table. All pretty standard except for the table. The table on some saws is relatively small which makes supporting long boards difficult. One solution is to build the saw into a bench. Anot...
First of all I want to thank many of you for the friendly welcom you have given me. And then I will be brief because actually it is a very small and simple project, but perhaps it can be useful for someone.

For now, this is a very simple solution to do and that has helped me a lot at time to work. The main thing this stand is that it ...
Somewhat dated from 2011 but a good article about what it takes to refinish a bowling lane. How It's Done.
I should remember that there are no shortcuts to good work. It took longer to complete this sled build than it should have. I should have slowed down to get the countersinks drilled right the first time. Oh, well. The sled is done and is square. As I stated I used William Ng’s “5 Cuts to a Perfect Crosscut Sled”. It is just I took more than two sets of tests to get the front fence set to square. And so it goes.
