“The Handplane Book” | Best Traditional Woodworking Books & DVDs

08-20-2014 07:19 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

In the above video I share another one of my absolute favorite books about traditional woodworking: “The Handplane Book” by Garrett Hack. Read my original blog post here. I hesitated to buy this book because I thought it would just be a small book about someone’s handplane collection, but I finally decided to order it online. I was wrong about this book being slim on information. This book is exceptional and very helpful. Not only does the book have beautiful photographs of h...

Wooden Spoon Material Experiment

08-13-2014 01:55 AM by bobkberg | 5 comments »

My wife loves her wooden spoons, but after many years, they warp and crack and eventually fall apart. So I started wondering what the best material to make a wooden spoon out of might be. I bought 10 small samples of hardwoods and cut them all to roughly the size that could serve as the bowl of a wooden spoon. So I have 10 pieces of wood roughly 5” long, 2 1/2” wide and 7/16” thick. I started with those and put them into a large stock pot with 4 gallons of water a...

Best Traditional Woodworking Books & DVDs: “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” by Christopher Schwarz

In my above video I share a must-have book for new and seasoned traditional woodworkers: “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” by Christopher Schwarz. You can see the original review on my blog post here. “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” is one of my absolute favorite books on the subject of traditional woodworking. Chris Scwharz displays his unfiltered humor, and no-nonsense approach to modern day woodworking anarchism: (1) build your own quality furniture instead of buying throw-away furniture...

Woodworking Machinery/Tools Reviews #1: My experience with SawStop

07-30-2014 01:22 AM by Ron Messersmith | 4 comments »

Recently, I switched my main shop workhorse from a MiniMax CU300 Smart Combination Machine to the 5 HP Industrial Saw Stop Tablesaw. My reason is pretty simple: I am changing my major work from furniture to small boxes, bowls and wood toys. I am 67 and just want to get away from the heavy lifting. The MiniMax was a great machine but was just a little more than I needed and did not really support the jigs I had accumulated over the years or the Incra Fence system that I wanted to support...

All you woodturners out there - watch THIS!

07-29-2014 12:46 AM by KnotCurser | 9 comments »

I was watching “How do they do it” today and saw the article on the Russian Nesting Dolls. FANTASTIC! The two biggest reasons: 1) The workers are all women! They can out-turn most of us guys and not break a sweat – of course they are paid to turn out thousands of the same pieces every day, but WOW are they good! 2) The tools that are used – totally foreign to what we are used to. They look more like fancy sword edges than turning tools – and they u...

06-30-2014 07:05 AM by Jasonjenkins | 2 comments »

First blog entry! ENDS TODAY (6/30) I seem to come across some pretty stellar deals in my woodworking tool obsession and I though I would share my good finds with my fellow Lumberjocks. Mostly the deals will be from Lowes, Home Depot and Woodcraft. SO the find I wanted to share was IRWIN 12-in Bar Clamp! Lowes has been running them buy one get one free- but this week they are simply HALF OFF. ($10) A good find and while you are there picking some up- look around for Bessey clamps....
