Don’t waste your money buying a marking gauge. Make your own gauge and use up some of those scraps in the shop. Please subscribe to my channel and share my videos. Click here to view video (videos still aren’t embedding).
THROW YOUR SANDPAPER AWAY!!! Ok, so don’t throw your sandpaper away, but cut down on the amount of dust in your shop by making this quick and easy tool. A card scraper is also very useful when working around knots in wood. In this video I show you how to take an old, out of service saw blade and turn it into something useful again. Thanks for viewing, comments welcome, and as always, please subscribe to my Youtube Channel.
At the garden I dug old stump of Prunus avium. I was there for some years. Summer is here so I decided to divide it to half parts. My friend helped me with sawing by crosscut saw (little blunt). It was very hard work. But after some hours very beautiful timbers shows. I grinded it and soaked with water. You ca see it’s little stained by fungi.

the principle is a wagon (brand Schiffer) which goes up and down on a rail and the bandsaw (brand Langer) is in a fixed position. For entire mill to operate like this you need 26 employees. Fully automatic mills are available but not recommendable because they get damaged and who is going to repair difficult electronics in the middle of the jungle in a country like Bolivia where there is no spare parts… operating bandsaw cutting ipe boards – 1 operating bandsaw cutting ipe boar...

I started this project a while ago but only finished it now this idea has been done before but most people just cut a slot in some plywood and attach their circular saw, whereas i got a piece of MDF and attached it to a black and decker workmate, i cut a recess in it for my circular saw and screwed into place, i cut mitre slots in the top of the mdf so i can make jigs to attach to the saw (crosscut sled) then i made a custom clamp that tightens very hard to the table. Materials cost is ar...
As woodworkers we also need to cut metal once in a while. Also, having the ability to cut metal will allow us to create custom handles as I have on past projects. The question is how do we get a clean cut? Hacksaw? Reciprocating saw? Nope – portaband is the answer. The portaband is a powerful, smooth cutting portable bandsaw and a tool that I recommend for any custom woodworkding shop. Hope you enjoy! Your friend in the shop- Todd A.

So fo the past while I have been sanding the body to shape. I was also doing anything I could to avoid facing the challenge of cutting the body apart. I was afraid of doing so because it is not a cheap chunk of wood, and also all the effort put into getting the shape correct shape made it more special. Then one day I decided it had to be done and I did it. And that new bandsaw got quite the workout. It did go better then I expected with the minor flaw here and there. after the walls were ...
After a month of development based on the feedback I got here, I finally managed to release Carpenter Pro, this time, it calculates how many plywood sheets are needed to finish your project and get detailed cutlist diagram for each stock sheet needed. It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...
