Great Companies to Deal With #1:

06-02-2018 05:38 PM by Jerry | 4 comments » is a Customer Service Hero. Far too many times I’ve ordered items USPS priority or next day air only to have the order languish for several days before even getting processed for shipment, thereby completely negating my costly efforts to get said item at my doorstep in a timely manner. I ordered some Mission style cabinet door pulls from this outfit last Wednesday. Imagine my surprise when they showed up in my mailbox on Friday. These folks got my order out t...

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching!

Wood hinges, Incra HingeCrafter

04-17-2018 12:11 AM by MrLaughingbrook | 4 comments »

I bought the HingeCrafter and did one practice set of hinges following the directions as closely as possible. All seemed to go well and indicate I could get better with practice. So, when I decided on wood hinges for my current project then I thought I’d make a wood hinge inventory using current project stock plus some exotics scraps to improve my skills and not have to relearn and practice with the jig for a while. 3/8 inch hinges. A few comments may help someone on a similar eff...

Hand Tools #1: The cheapest Block Plane I ever bought, brand new.

03-30-2018 06:23 AM by Tony Slattery | 3 comments »

This is the block plane that I bought from my local Mitre 10 hardware store. It only cost $10 in the bargain bin, so no great expectations. I am hoping to get it tuned up and sharpen the blade as best I can, and hopefully it will be worthwhile. At the very least, I will have learned something about block planes. On that note, let me say that although I have been involved in woodworking and making things over the years, I am by no means an expert in all things woodworking. The car...

GO or NO GO; The Wood Working Shows 2018

02-26-2018 11:05 PM by Matt887 | 2 comments »

GO or NO GO; The Wood Working Shows 2018 As I have mentioned before I am beginning my quest to learn more about the skills needed to become the type of woodworker who can build furniture and items of outstanding quality. With a fulltime job that takes up 60 hours of my week the one way I know to gain the knowledge I seek is to attend some classes and tradeshows. That being said I came across an advertisement for The Woodworking Shows event in Kansas City and began looking around for review...

Time for a Miter Saw Upgrade! #2: It all begins with the research...

01-18-2018 10:40 PM by PlanBWoodworks | 12 comments »

Like many of us, when I first got into procuring tools for my wood shop, I was heavily influenced by price over features and capability. I would do research before buying a tool, but at the time, I did not really understand what was important, or in a lot of cases, how the tool would actually be used in day to day work. My Ryobi 10” sliding miter saw was the very first tool that I bought, and I had NO idea what to look for. My research consisted of pricing and customer ratings of various sa...

Time for a Miter Saw Upgrade! #1: The beginning...

12-29-2017 02:00 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 0 comments »

I suppose that it would be foolish to begin anywhere else. Somewhere around 2 years ago, I wanted to make a straight cut on something. I don’t even remember what i was working on. After doing a little research, I decided to purchase a miter saw. Of course, I was aware of the old adage, you get what you pay for. However, my wife and I agreed that I wasn’t building furniture. It wasn’t necessary for me to buy the best. A little more research led me to purchase a Ryobi 10” sliding miter saw....
