I need to join angle iron to angle iron to form a T beam. Now, I’ve drilled into metal more than a few times… Often I’m disappointed with the results. Knowing that the inside of the bed rails will not be on display, I decided to use it as a learning opportunity and for sk...

Quick Tip #3: Center/Offset Marking Tool

08-12-2016 04:02 PM by Kent Shepherd | 2 comments »

Accurate, clean marks are critical to any fine woodworking project. For years my marking tool arsenal consisted of a tape measure and a pencil, sometimes sharp (maybe). To mark the center of a board edge was hit or miss—mostly miss! As my quality progressed, so did my need for accurate ways to mark. How can you cut it or drill it right if you don’t start with a proper starting point. For the last few years I have been on the look-out for anything that would help achieve that. Not ...

Huge Estate Sale - 300+ Planes!

01-22-2013 03:31 AM by grfrazee | 2 comments »

Since I’ve been looking for a few things, I figured I might as well make the 1:15 drive from Downers Grove and ...
