Epoxy Lids and Why I Hate Them

05-06-2017 06:01 PM by MaxSupernova | 9 comments »

So, I like to rant about user experience and design issues, and this is something that really bugs me. Yes, it’s minor, and it’s easily solved with a sharpie, but it shouldn’t have to be! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQySdXv49CM

NETWORK AND EXPAND! #1: NETWORKING IN OUR COMMUNITY*MUST READ*

04-24-2017 11:43 AM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...

3/4 = 18mm

04-15-2017 04:39 PM by steliart | 31 comments »

Many times when I’m designing in sketchup, either following a project design, idea or measurements from a video that are in inches, it’s quite confusing for us who did not learn into the imperial system but in metric to get the measurements accurate and loosing a mm there and there that ads up to a significant number.Watching many videos either tutorial or projects etc. when they give dimensions some say i.e. 1/2 inch and transform this to 13mm… well we all know that an inch...

Hands-on with the Shaper Origin

03-19-2017 09:43 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

When I was first searching for a CNC to add to my shop, I ran across an odd tool called the Shaper Origin. The tool was in essence a self-correcting router that works like a hand-held CNC machine. I spent some time watching the videos on their site and reading through the blog. It was a novel idea, though it wasn’t quite ready to ship (as I write the the first batch is slated to ship Fall 2017) and not really what I wanted/needed for guitar work. Still, it seemed absolutely incredib...

2017 PATINA Spring Tool Sale and Auction

03-14-2017 06:21 PM by EricTwice | 0 comments »

If you get a chance go. A friend finally convinced me this year. I dropped my Stanley 9 1/2 and broke it. I bought it in 95. it is English made. I was hoping to find another like it and have spare parts. No such luck. I settled for a 1950s era U.S. made one, new in box for which I paid 20$. I’m happy. I also picked up a 6” Millers Falls sliding square and a 5” Starret for very reasonable. Yes there are some pricey offerings, but you can also find some very reasonable p...

Veritas Spokeshave Initial Impressions

03-04-2017 11:51 PM by bbasiaga | 0 comments »

Hey all! Thought I’d post this as a blog, since I haven’t really had any real use of the tool yet. I got a new Veritas round bottom spokeshave for Christmas and wanted to share some thoughts about it as it came out of the box and got some initial testing. I’ll post a real review someday after I have some project time with it. I’ve got a video here: https://youtu.be/FnD0mZgUqFo The Cliff’s Notes: 1. Its beautiful and very well constructed2.

NOVA Voyager Drill Press #1: First impression of my new Nova Voyager drill press.

03-03-2017 02:02 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 25 comments »

I have just upgraded my old variable speed drill press to a Nova Voyager. I shall try to give an unabashed summary of the machine; however, at $2,400 (Aus.) I may be a tad biased with a tendency to justify my extravagance. The drill press installed,There is one prerequisite to owning a Nova Voyager drill press. You need a wife with expensive taste in shoes, dresses and handbags (most of us have one of those)… and a good supply of vino. Then all you need to do is prime yourself with ple...

Moberg Tools Small Router Plane Review

03-01-2017 03:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

Video link is here if you prefer not to read https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cJsGbmom-g I heard about John Moberg’s tools from a friend of mine who has both his spokeshave and his router plane. I decided to get ahold of the router plane for myself and see what it’s like. The fit and finish is what you’d expect from a handmade tool. This is a user tool not a collector (thought it looks quite awesome in my opinion) It’s similar to a Stanley 271 plane but the &#...

Shop stuff #82: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 13 Disaster.

Things go wrong with the finishing process. I don’t get it figured out on this video, but I keep trying and trying. I go through the finish process, then strip it because I was not happy and start again. View on YouTube
