I was at a wood show and there was a demonstration buy a vendor selling Norton Wet Stones. They has a kit of 4 stones, a flattening stone, and angle guide and a little jig for holding your chisel or plane iron all for about $100. He made it look so easy. I was sold. I got the stuff home and for some reason I was a little intimidated. Matts Basement Workshop did a video on sharpening so I watched it a couple times to pump myself up and off I went. My chisels are some old and abused a...
As you may noticed I’ve added new posting rules to the site. You can see red “View the posting rules” link above each textarea. Just click on it to expand the latest version of the rules. These rules are not here to restrict healthy woodworking discussions. They are simply the reaction to some recent incidents and are focusing primarily on personal attacks, offensive posts, advertising as well as political and religious controversies. Note that these new rules will not be...

Well, now that I’m fairly comfortable with the layout and construction of the cabinet it was time to tear things apart and get some actual measurements and formulate a material list and plan of attack (much easier to tear virtual cabinets apart!). After saving the Sketchup plan as another file I start removing unnecessary and duplicate items and start putting-in some dimensions. The pictures should show most if not all of the dimensions I used, but I can’t say for sure since I...
Well, this is the second and final part of my dust collector retro-fit. Here you can see the two boxed as I recieved them:.. Here they are unpacked and stacked. I removed the Dust Dog label. I figured that it didn’t do anything but restrict air flow. It came off easily.. Here you can see the handle that created some confusion in the first part of this blog... As the handle is rotated it makes these “paddles” brush against the pleats of the filterknocking off the ...
I today discovered Cian Perez’s page, The Index of Fossil-Fuel-Friendly Woodworking Knowledge. This site is chock full of links and articles on using hand tools. A page is also available for power tools. Cian has gathered information from numerous sources and archived them for our reference. If you need to know something about hand tools, from using them, to who makes them, this is the spot to start.
Referring to my live shop feed, I’ve had a lot of people say to me “I don’t know if I could stand people watching everything I do….You’d have to be on your best behavior“, and you do. I don’t have much to hide or to worry about, if I compare myself to other people or other things you find on the internet. God sees everything anyway so shouldn‘t we be on our best behavior all the time. Even more than that He has seen even those secret sins that we’ve done. If that is the case I...

I ordered the lathe on Saturday and received a call from the shipping company on Tuesday, talk about fast service! The delivery actually took place on Thursday due to the shipping companies truck routes. The shipping company was Saia. I had to have lift gate service because the lathe was being delivered to my home. The driver was nice enough to drop the pallete in my garage instead of leaving it on the street. I was so busy assembling the lathe that I forgot to take pictures. I didn...
