Had to run to the jobs site today to make sure one of the subs had everything he needed (of course he didn’t , but hey, he works 14 hour days on Sunday’s!)Anyway on the way back home I saw a little yard sale going on so I pulled up and found this gem of a hand saw, pretty damn rare and one I don’t have! It’s a Harvey W. Peace Brooklyn New York with the 1887 Patent Date! It’s in pretty good shape too! And if you guys read my stupid blog you know I am a...
This is the start of a build for an end table. It will have curved front doors, a curved drawer, and the doors and drawer will have a book matched veneer. In this video, I start by pattern routing the front pieces, and then work on the case construction and the solid cherry book matched side panels. The case is put together with all mortise and tenon joinery, and even a few blind dovetails. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in...

This is a project I’ve been wanting to do for a year or so now. Watch the build on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5--q60JdDJ0
I prefer getting my wood in the rough for two reasons: The first reason is the cost. Rough lumber is incredibly cheaper than 4-side finished wood. The other reason is flexibility. I am able to “find” the best part of the board in the rough lumber whereas, if your wood is pre-finished, you are stuck with what you get.So here is my workflow: LayoutRough lengthRough WidthJoint 1 face and 1 edgeFinal width + 1/16” Joint to final widthPlane to final thicknessFinal lengthLet me...
I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.
So I went to my local salvage/resale store today looking for anything cool they might have up in the tool section. After rummaging through all the junk I found a complete postwar Stanley #4 bench plane for $3.00, some halfway decent rasps for $0.25 each, and few other odds and ends. As I was leaving I decided to dig through all the hand saws they had jammed in an old slop sink. After going through about 30 of them I came across an early Disston. I looked at it for a little while and the handl...
Note: I was going to narrate this video, but I think it speaks for itself, and I really like how the music synced up to it, so I left it as-is. You can voice your opinion below about this different format. I ran a couple thousand feet of yellow pine through my planer for the past 6 months and it was time to rotate my blades before tackling an upcoming project using red oak. If you have seen my previous video about cleaning blades, you know how nasty yellow pine is. I took the opportunit...
Until I get my dust collector piped to the entire workshop, I needed to use something other than my shop vac to collect planer chips. The sheer volume of sawdust created by the planer required me to build some type of receptacle that is large and easy to empty. I used inspiration from John Heisz and came up with my own semi-cyclonic, trash can chip collector.Enjoy! Trash Can Chip Collector
