I recently decided to go on a box making journey in woodworking. The various skills that one can learn by making simple and small boxes and structures can lead to big improvements in skill while performing larger work later on. Plus, it’s a good way to use up scraps that are laying around the woodshop. My first step in taking on any new style or project is typically a trip to the library and sometimes a further trip to the bookstore. (I’m lucky in that my public library has an...
I stopped by the library this week and picked up a few books on tools. The goal is to educate myself sufficiently that I know what I’ll want to be doing with the tools. This week the selections are: Jim Tolpin’s Table Saw MagicGreat for my intended purpose. The first 45 pages are nothing but the basics: types of saws, setup, tune-up, upkeep. The rest of the book (the bulk of it) is devoted to the myriad uses of a table saw and while details are occasionally thin, there ar...
We’re currently in the process of re-designing our online woodworking store. We sell machinery, tools, equipment, accessories – anything & everything that is woodworking. We shooting for a grand re-launch event late April/early May. While we’re narrowing down the final stages of this project, we’d like to get you the woodworking community involved to let us know what you’d like to see in an online woodworking store. Let us know of any features, ease-of-use, s...
So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

Anyone else collect the Fine woodworking design books ? I personally have all 8. My all time favorite is Design Book Three. Bought Design Book Eight last week.
One of the people that my dad works with in my company has asked me to make for him a Pen complete with a leather case + a wooden box for his boss. I guess that he thinks that a good gift will improve his chances of keeping his job. Either way, i have to make it really good. He has given me pretty much free reign on what wood to use etc. So this will be an important project for me because it is one where i can really see if i’m any good at designing, etc. I ca...
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’m not going to be able to write tomorrow so I am writting today. Now that you have your piece of wood picked out for your 1st spoon, let’s get started. I am sitting here with a cup of freshly made tea, with the wooden tea spoon that I made last night. I really liked this little spoon. I took my time (1 1/2 hours) making it. The grain is very nice and it is especially smooth and soft to the touch. SO, I decided to keep it…...
