hello fellow lumber jocks. i am still fairly new to this site but i really love the tips and advice that i get and the really neat projects that are displayed here. i just recently purcheased a used 12” craftsman commercial table saw ($65.00), which was a much needed upgrade. i am sure that it probly a least 30 years old, but it still works fine. to me one of the drawbacks of this saw is that it is a direct drive, but it as a hoss that much is for sure. it was al my son and i could do ...

Just need to get sanding paper, pen press, glue, finishes, some blanks and kits and I can get started knocking out some pens. Can’t wait!

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...
My mom and my grandfather have their birthdays about a week apart in March, and I want to make them each something special. Since I’ve been making several dozen small boxes anyway, I thought I’d try combining a number of boxes together into larger pieces. I’d tried Sketchup before, but couldn’t get the hang of it. This time, however, I stumbled across the tutorials at Sketchup for Woodworkers and they helped enormously. At this point I’ve spent about five hours o...
If you’ve ever had to buy a sheet of plywood, drywall, or something from a building supply store and it’s raining (or snowing- this is PEI), what are you going to do? This used to happen to me a lot. I’d be making a cabinet for a customer, or myself, and need something at the local building supply store. Back then I had a pickup truck (Big Red, my daughters used to call it when they were small), but it only had a 6 1/2 foot box, and a sheet of plywood is 8 feet long. If i...
