Harbor Freight No 33 Bench Plane review and tuneup

02-03-2016 04:50 PM by Marty Backe | 7 comments »

I was in Harbor Freight the other day and I came across their No 33 bench plane, whatever that is. But for $10 I thought, “what the hell, let’s see what can be done with it”. In this video I unbox it and then proceed to tune it up. About 2 hours later (spread over a couple of days) I had a plane that could take whisper thin shavings. It won’t be replacing my nicer planes, but I’ll be keeping it to plane the edges of plywood, MDF, etc., stuff I don’t want...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

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.

Reaperwoodworks #5: Kreg K5 review

01-15-2016 09:05 PM by Reaperwoodworks | 0 comments »

Decided to do something a little different with this weeks video post. Have a small shelf project going on in the shop right now which I hope to get up later this week as well. All I need is time, ugh. Stupid full time job gets in the way of woodworking all the dang time! https://youtu.be/19srokdddfE

End of year #1: 2015 - What a year

12-20-2015 12:16 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

What a year… it has been an adventure of highs and lows. A high being I starting filming my projects and uploading to youtube, I use to just post to this blog. One of my lows would be the drain on my energy especially during the winter months and continuing to push through and put out a project video every week since I started. I would like to thank all for your continued support in this venture… I met my goal of getting 1000 subscribers before the of the year and now closing i...

Makita 1/4 sheet finish sander review

12-15-2015 08:52 AM by Marty Backe | 4 comments »

I just bought a Makita 1/4 sheet finish sander to compliment my Porter-Cable Block Sander (the 330). I wanted a finish sander that had dust collection, and the Makita had good written reviews. I thought a video review might be useful for anybody considering the Makita. The last few minutes of the video provides some thoughts as to why a finish sander (vs a random orbit sander) is still a good choice for the modern workshop.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1667: Different Strokes for Different Folks - DecoArt Traditions Brush Review

12-10-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am finding it kind of hard to decide what to write about these days. As Christmas is quickly approaching, I have been working diligently on some gifts that I am going to be sending out soon. As you can imagine, the gifts are heading for my family and friends, and many of them check in on my blog every once and a while. I do want to have what I am making them a bit of a surprise, so I can't really talk about things. It is a bit of a dilemma. We are two weeks away from Christmas, and...

Shop stuff #20: My new Bosch Glide Mitre video

12-06-2015 02:45 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It has been a long day. Along with taking the footage of the video, editing it, uploading and all the rest, I did all the card scraping on all the parts made so far of the essential oil rack I have been working on, did 2 separate glue ups on it (one is drying now), made a new batch of BLO and bees wax, and applied it to the pieces for the back panel of the rack. On top of that I barbiqued some steaks for supper. Yes,....barbique,.... in Canada,.... in December! So without any more rambl...

Hi friends! Today I finished my small project and made my garage pants of usual jeans and leather. Regular, ordinary pants destroys very quickly and I tried to strengthen it by leather… Let’s watch my video of the process: https://youtu.be/47LuKMTRLz8

Got some Bradford Pear logs, and a really big Saw

11-13-2015 01:40 PM by ChickenChaser | 5 comments »

There was a storm that knocked down a neighbors Bradford Pear tree. I tried spliting it, but that was a disaster. I had recently picked up an old one man cross cut saw from an estate sale for $15 so I re-sharpend the teeth to 90 degress for a rip pattern. It worked an I eventually got threw, but it took forever. I found that a 6 ppi 26” Pannel saw did the job much more efficiently. Just a little tip I wish someone could have told me before I spent all that time on the cross cut saw.
