Hello everyone, it’s both my first post to the site and my first ever blog post all in one. I’ve been browsing the site for a few weeks now because I’ve been on the market for a new table saw and sort of fell in love with the idea of rebuilding a Craftsman 113. Well after contacting a couple of people through my local Craigslist, today I went out and picked up not just one but two table saws. The first saw I found and actually had a friend go and take a look at for me...
The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

I have recently starting scratching the itch that has been the desire to finally get into woodworking. I have wanted to do this for a long time, but never had the opportunity to really start until recently. Some friends of ours moved into a new house and were needing some furniture. They had seen some projects on Pinterest made from crates and were going to ask someone else to make them, but I saw my opportunity and jumped on it. There began the journey into many YouTube videos and trip...
New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw
Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...
New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos
Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...
Check out how I did my first saw restoration!;https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuURBvPUoh_ghXT86FXtIRQ
Here is a video of my past and present projects. I thought it would be a lot easier to do it this way to show you some of my work. All projects from wood I have used either pallets or recycled wood from old furniture and off cuts I had laying around in the workshop. I really like to make and build many things as you can see. I hope you like what you see. I really enjoyed building everyone of these projects. I am currently working on a Homemade Bandsaw a drill press and a routing machine...
Super excited to get back at woodturning again after almost 20 years, yes since I was a teenager. Back than I did a lot of woodturning in my fathers shop. I used to make money with my turnings back then selling them locally & work of mouth. I also used to sell wooden pipes to the local smokers. I specialized in 18” long piece pipes & back then $25 was a lot to me, still is, haha. So Far I have purchased a used wood lathe, a g1495 which they discontinued the month I got mine l...
Today I filmed two shows for Charles Neil’s Mastering Woodworking webcast. The shows cover the waterfront, from the types of planes and how they’re used, to planing technique, to restoring an old handplane. If you are a subscriber to the Mastering Woodworking shows, expect to see these broadcasts this week and next. If you aren’t a subscriber, the shows are an excellent way to learn woodworking and a lot of fun to watch, so you might consider subscribing. The website add...
