Discovering exotic woods in the Urban forests of North America

12-29-2009 09:16 PM by rustfever | 13 comments »

I have had some good fortune to discover several ‘exotic’ woods growing in our community. This success has whet my appetite for more. I have been searching for some work [or works] that can help me discover more such woods. I am interested in discovering the names of various native and relocated tree [ususally use for landscaping purposes] that might be found in No. Am. I also wish to get the ideas of the figure, coloration, work-ability, desirabliltiy of each of these woo...

Review of High Torque Carver/Engraver

12-27-2009 12:38 AM by cmckerliesr | 1 comment »

I purchased the High Torque Carver/Engraver item # 147235 from Woodcraft.com a couple of weeks ago. I received it on time, packaged well, and in good condition. I will say that once I opened the box and actually held the tool in my hand I was a little disappointed. I was lucky enough to buy it on sale for $44. Even at that price, it felt rather cheaply made in my hand. I had read the description very carefully before buying, because for one I already own a dremel. Which I have been having ...

Review of WoodRiver Shop Lights #2: Update to my review

12-23-2009 07:35 PM by cmckerliesr | 0 comments »

OK, I originally posted a review of these shop lights on woodcraft.com and then copied it here because I was to lazy to write it all over again. I just thought that there may be others out there looking for a light and a magnifying light for use in their shop. Well I have had the chance to use these two lights a lot more recently so I thought I should update my review of them. I still love these lights. I have now had the chance to run both of them on AAA batteries for about 50 hours (r...

HTC 2000 Mobile Base Broken Foot Lever After A Couple Weeks

12-19-2009 09:40 PM by BlankMan | 15 comments »

Well I bought two of these mobile bases, one for my Delta Drum Sander and the other for my Jet Belt/Disc Sander. I was a little leery of the plastic levers and I guess rightfully so. This one broke this past week when trying to get it into position to raise the wheel and will no longer lift that side of the base. The design spec for this mobile base says it has a 500lbs capacity, the Jet Sander that is on this base is around 277lbs according to Jet, well within the mobile base’s spec...

The Woodworking adventures of Andrew

12-17-2009 07:03 PM by rmwood | 9 comments »

Hi everyone my name is Andrew. This is the first of daily postings about my woodworking experiences. I am 20 years old and live in Fort Collins Co. I have been doing woodworking my whole life, and last year made the decision to start my own business. I have struggled allot in this first year and have become discouraged. I hope that this can be a source of therapy for me. I love woodworking and don’t want to see that change anytime soon, but fear that unless changes are made I may...

Where I'm coming from

11-15-2009 06:05 AM by 76winger | 8 comments »

A short history putting me to where I’m at now. I’ve always had an interest in woodwork, but unfortunately had too many other interests and thus am getting a late start into it. Over the years I’ve had and enjoyed many hobbies, and most have come and gone, but my interest in creating things for myself has never died. I’m avid do-it-yourselfer anyway and have generally done everything myself from home maintenance and room remodeling, to working on my own cars, motorc...
