Hand Planes - Never had interest in picking one up, now I cant put them down

11-08-2010 08:14 PM by Dan | 13 comments »

I only started getting serious about woodworking this year. When I was setting up my shop I had a list of tools that I wanted to fill it with and hand planes were no where on my list. It wasn’t that I didn’t like them it was just that I was just learning things and my mind seemed to be focused on power tools. I had no interest or urge to do things by hand. Well as I was setting up my shop I was also learning that this is an expensive hobby. I realized that I would have to pass on ...

The Lee Valley diet!!

11-08-2010 07:31 PM by Rick Boyett | 9 comments »

I’m 6’ 2” and about 205 lbs. Not obese but I certainly need to lose a few pounds. However I’ve had problems losing weight. I have all sorts of obstacles. My knee curses me when I try to run, my job steals my time, and my brain says WTF when I try to exercise. Lee Valley to the rescue! With the Lee Valley diet you are guaranteed to lose weight where it counts. Your 3rd point of contact will looks much slimmer as your wallet becomes lighter. The great thing...

Built In Closets #5: Pre Finishing and Sub Assembly

11-08-2010 05:01 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Having the bulk of pieces, cut and sanded, I elected to tape and pre finish most of the components. Finishing large projects is a huge challenge for me as I work in a 3 car garage and can not easily spray stuff. Since I was finishing many large panels, I decided to try applying the clear coat with a floor roller. Since I like their other products, I decided to use a Zinsser water based poly. It worked as well as brushing does, however, the coats go on thick and you need to watch the rol...

which bandsaw?

11-08-2010 02:25 PM by jat | 17 comments »

I am very new to woodworking (and this site) but I really enjoy the new hobby. Gave up my competitive golfing after rotator cuff surgery. At the moment, I am trying to decide on a bandsaw and have sort of narrowed things to 3 grizzly models: g0555x, g0513 or g0457.
