Why I Buy Used Power Tools

07-10-2014 05:52 AM by TheWoodenOyster | 7 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

Your Opinion Wanted

06-21-2014 09:03 AM by Eagle1 | 10 comments »

This weekend I was going through one of my wood books. That’s about all I can do right. In the last year I had 4 surgery’s on my knee. The last one was in February when I had a seizure and actually broke my leg, I never thought that could happen. Anyway back to the book. I saw a ad about the woodmaster planer sander and molder. It was a bit weird it factory is about 45 min from my house. Anyway all comments good or bad would be helpful. Thanks Tim:

Coffee Table Build #2: Panel Building

06-12-2014 10:47 PM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

After glueing up the table top, I began making the frames for the sides. I cut four panels, and eight rails and stiles. I took the time to use my hollow chisel mortiser to mortise all the stiles and I made tenons on the rails with my tenoning jig. This went quite well and everything fit nicely. I decided to practise a haunched tenon on the rails although this part will never be seen, what better time to try something new! Two of the panels will be set into two of the frames but the oth...

New Planer - DeWalt DW734

06-08-2014 11:40 PM by Chris McDowell | 19 comments »

I finally added another tool to my shop. It’s my first “big” tool purchase; it’s big for me, at least. I was given my table saw and drill press, so no money spent there. I’ve been wanting to move towards being able to mill my own lumber. This is step 1. Although, I think a band saw is next on the list of tools I need most, then a jointer. The planer is a DeWalt DW734. I’ve seen it at Lowe’s and have read plenty of reviews. I didn’t want to ...

Making a toted coffin smoother

06-06-2014 12:26 AM by Wally331 | 14 comments »

Pics will be on in a few min- will edit when I’ve got em all, hang in there ;) After making my small cherry smoother which worked great, I decided I wanted to up my game and build a more traditional styled plane. I also wanted it to be toted and have a harder wood for the sole of the plane. I chose to use cherry again because it’s what I had and it is very beautiful. For the sole I chose purpleheart- mostly because its what I had, but its also extremely hard and it is actua...

A new Toy: Thickness planer

06-04-2014 02:03 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

One thing that I have long felt lacking among my group of tools was a thickness planer. Since I tend to look for discarded wood (I.E. free) to use for projects very often the wood is a bit rough. Mostly it will have a previous owner’s finish on it which I am forced to remove. I’d also like to utilize pallet wood, since it’s free in my area, but my list of ‘rustic’ projects is a bit short. So some time ago, I started saving my pocket change towards buying a...
