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...

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....

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...
