Cope & Stick

01-19-2013 12:27 PM by bigchopperoo | 7 comments »

Since I did a video how to fit inset doors, I thought maybe I should take a step backwards and show how to make a simple cope and stick cabinet door. Hope you enjoy the video, especially the ending.:-)

Tool Gloat!

06-02-2012 01:55 AM by Ryan Haasen | 7 comments »

My parent’s friend’s business shut down and they were selling all of the assets tomorrow in sort of a garage-sale way. So tonight my Dad and I went in there to take a look at what they had. They had multiple tools, and some useful for woodworking. So we started making a pile. The first thing that caught my eye was a Porter-Cable router and a bunch of router bits and accessories. The accessories included bits, flush-trim bits, 1/2” and 1/4” collets and more. I have b...

What I wish I'd known before spending money on woodworking hand tools #2: Still more new or used... You decide.

03-29-2011 08:35 PM by Dave Pearce | 3 comments »

This is the followup on my first posting concerning new vs. used woodworking tools. Bits, Braces and Eggbeaters Fortunately, for me, it wasn’t hard to find braces, either at flea markets, or antique shops. There’s a wide variety out there as well, so it’s not uncommon to find many variations of the same item. I’ve got several Stanley, Millers Falls, and Pexto models, and all of them have their good points. Since there were so many manufacturers, if you see one...

Sharpening Router Bits

08-05-2010 08:31 PM by Karson | 19 comments »

Since the router bits are now clean, I might as well sharpen them. Yesterday I showed you how I clean saw blades, router bits and clean up the belt sander belts. Since I’ve got the router bits clean and I was ready to put them away I figured I might as well sharpen them. I use 3 in 1 oil with the sharpening tools on my router bits. I use Eze-lap diamond paddles for sharpening. Here is a place that carries them. They come individually, sets of three and sets of ...

Yankee trouble (bits and pieces...) BLOG

08-03-2010 08:05 PM by mafe | 17 comments »

Yankee trouble (bits and pieces…)Or when you have to pay 45$ for to little, and are to stubborn to do so! Yes I had the choice to pay 45$ including shipping for Europe, for a bitholder to my Yankees, or buy a set of different bits from england for 28 Pound – this was the closest to madness since I own several other more modern screwdrivers, but…Yes I like old tools, and love to have a beautiful or special tool in my hands, and since I am the owner of tree Yankee screwdriv...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #13: It's All About the Template...

01-30-2010 02:13 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

So today, I cleaned up the shop a bit and started on the template to make the back legs. Based on my AutoCAD drawing, I laid it out on some 1/4” masonite (hardboard). I even remembered to make it longer to affix the ends together. I cut it out and faired it as best I could. It’s almost perfect (you can spot 1/1000” off) when sighting down it. It looks pretty darn good from the side. I then double-sided taped it to a roughed out blank and using my pattern-followin...

03-07-2009 01:43 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

BLERG! I bought these last weekend, 6 days ago now, for $40. I tend to stock up on 50%-off items I really want in their continuous stream of sales, but while at the store to take advantage of a $15 coupon (>$50 purchase), I saw these. They weren’t on sale, but every 1/64” increment between 1/8” and 1/2”, and brad point as well? I Had to have them. I hadn’t seen them on sale (or I’ve forgotten) in the months (year?) that I’ve been scouring their sales,...
