I’ve been moving more and more into hand-tool-only woodwork in the past few years, and since my table saw chewed 1/4” off my thumb last month, I finally have decided to part with some machines.Take a look: General model 350 10” Table Saw. Very heavy duty industrial grade machine.Manufactured in North America. This machine is a real brute! Best one I’ve ever owned. 220v/1phase 3hp Baldor motorDouble sheaved drive systemCast iron table54” rip capacityCast ...

I started working on my sheet good storage system. For a small shop, this is ideal! When you don’t want to use it, you just fold it up and get it out of the way! See the first video in the series on how I made it!
I received a set of Stanley 750 chisels from my wife for my birthday months ago and decided that they and my planes needed a place that was easy to get to and easy on the eye.Pictures are worth more than a thousand words.

In the above video, and in the below 10 steps, I teach one of the most basic and essential skills in traditional woodworking: how to square, flatten, & dimension your own rough lumber into finished boards. To build quality traditional furniture, you need to start with perfectly flat and square lumber. Some people achieve this with power jointers, planers, and table saws. While the electrical power route is more economical for a commercial woodworking workshop, I prefer the safet...

So, I’ve managed to get everything face jointed and the first of the big lamination done. I’ve decided I’m going to go with 8 segments in each half, at least for the moment.

I picked up a Rockwell 37-600 jointer on craigslist for $50 not too long ago and I never got around to adding it to the blog so here it is…This is what i got from the buyer. He was even nice enough to deliver it to me. When I got it a checked for flatness and listened to the motor and cutter bearings. All sounded good enough. I was thinking about sanding and painting for a complete restore. After cleaning the rust off the fence and tables and doing some wet sanding I was plea...
