I’VE BEEN RESAWING FOR SOME TIME NOW WITHIN THE LIMITS OF MY SAW. I HAVE A JET 14” BANDSAW. I WAS ORIGINALLY LIMITED TO ITS STANDARD HEIGHT MEANING I COULD ONLY RESAW A BOARD WHICH WAS AT MAX SIX INCHES HIGH. THIS WAS VERY TIME CONSUMING WHEN TRYING TO GET A BOARD SAY 15” WIDE BUT 1/2” THICK. MOST OF THE STOCK I USE IS AT LEAST 1” THICK. I WAS TIRED OF WASTING THE OTHER 1/2” OF WOOD BY PLANING IT OFF TO GET THE THICKNESS I WANTED. I COULD RESAW IT THINN...

I took the fam to the beach. They play while I work. The beach is a great place to find burls and good figured wood.I got about 30 BF of this tigar striped Maple. Nice stuff. I cut it up into 2” think boards.
Carpentry and woodworking has been an occasional (sometimes very occasional) pastime of mine since I was a kid messing up my father’s workshop and loosing his tools. However, I’ve never had any luck with a hand plane, and I’ve been in more than a few situations where one could have been very helpful. So I decided to take up the challenge of learning how to competently use a hand plane. It seems every discussion about using hand planes starts with a statement that the pl...

Okay I know, cheesy title for saying. Woo Hoo I finally got a compressor! The piles, and piles of other stuff in the way are dwindling, and the dust collection is up and working quite nicely. This is actually my Wife’s fault. She wanted to go to Big Lots, and has been after me to replace the Arrow electric brad nailer for a while now. A little background before I confuse you to death… I have an Arrow ET200 electric brad nail gun, and it, well sort of drives brads. What ex...
So a year or so ago, I learned a little tip on an install at work. I’m not sure how known this is, but thought I would pass it along. We were installing a signage system for HSBC bank and had to paint an orange square behind everything. We taped the box off, and were told to put some matte white paint down first to prevent bleed-through at the edges. We brushed on some white at the tape line, then painted the orange, and had crisp, straight lines when we peeled off the tape. I rec...
