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...

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.

Shop stuff #9: Blade cleaning

10-29-2015 07:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I was watching one of the You Tube channels I subscribe to and found a neat way to clean saw blades. It works very well and I had one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” moments. A great tip I got from the TabLeft Workshop channel that I tried. https://youtu.be/BZ-d1MdbQI8

Splinters of thought #1: The Year of the Book

10-20-2015 01:45 PM by bearkatwood | 1 comment »

The year of The BookThis year has been a good year of book buying for me. I have tried to expand my chair book selection and I think I just about got it. It started earlier this year with the wonderful book by Peter Galbert “The Chairmakers Notebook”. This is the best book on Woodworking let alone chairmaking I have ever read. Just recently I bought a few more that I feel are really worth the read. Chair: The current state of the art, with the who, the why, and the ...

choosing what is right for you #3: Kreg pocket hole jig R3

10-16-2015 08:47 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

I’ve seen the commercials, I knew I had a couple project where this would come in handy, I debated and procrastinated for months. Finally I decided to buy one of these jigs, I decided on the R3 because the sound of $40 vs $100 was a better bet. Overall it’s a great little tool to have on hand. How ever there are certain things they don’t mention so I will. There screws are not as self tapping as they claim. A self tapping screw should bite and grab these one you need clamp y...
