Shop Upgrades #17: Rockler Demo and Unexpected Shopping trip

03-07-2016 04:06 PM by bkseitz | 6 comments »

Took a break from working this weekend—cool project at my day job—to go to a series of demos/classes at my ( local? ) Rockler Store in Tukwila, WA. I guess local is in the eyes of the beholder; Its about 50 miles away. I had put a reminder in my cellphone calendar several months ago, but only had it alert me “the day of” not the prior day. Fortunately I’m an early riser. Off I went. They had two great demos. Turning and Making Raised Panels. I was really ...

Shop stuff #37: Three short videos

02-24-2016 12:10 AM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

I sometimes remember to get the camera rolling and pass on knowledge that was passed on to me. I often don’t have anywhere to put them though, so I started a new series. Doc’s Little Docs. We all started out knowing nothing, and often times, small bits of knowledge go by the wayside because people just assume that they are common knowledge. So although you may think that some of the ideas are self evident, or that everyone knows that, I think little ideas are worth preserving ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #63: Veritas Mk. II Honing Guide Review

02-18-2016 02:01 PM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

It’s been a year since I bought this. Here is a brief review of it, my impressions. This model has a straight brass roller on the bottom, so I have to used finger pressure to produce a slight bevel to the corners on plane irons. I haven’t checked Veritas (or Lee Valley) to see if I can swap it out for the recently seen cambered roller. If it turns out this can be done, I will purchase one and this issue will be resolved. The second complaint is a more severe one. The bev...

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.

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 Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #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...
