Drill Saw?

07-06-2010 08:19 PM by Jimthecarver | 18 comments »

I recieved a present from a friend, he picked this up at a yard sale and thought of me. Although I was very grateful he thought of me when he saw it, being a wood worker and all. He said he wasnt sure if it could be of any use to me and got it for a buck. Pete your are truely a great guy.My question is what could I use this for and how safe does it look to you?I thought I would post this and ask if any of you have seen it before or have used one in your past and how it worked out for you?Plea...

Adventures in Spraying #3: Piece 1 finished - recap

07-03-2010 08:53 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

OK, I’m actually already nearing completion of the 2nd piece which looks much better, but for this post, I’ll focus on my first-first experience with spraying, and the overall look, and results. So. After giving the top coat (4th) extra time to dry (~4-6 hours while we were out). I came back and sanded it thoroughly with 600grit sandpaper. the results were mixed: Newly finished piece in front, Original finish to compare in back Cons:1. I had some runs which show in the f...

Project Updates, Projects Anyone Can Do.

07-02-2010 07:14 PM by Hisingwooddesign | 1 comment »

This video covers a few simple projects that any woodworker of any skill level can make. I show a prototype of two projects that I’m currently filming how to videos on. A band saw box and a woodworking mallet. Both are made out of simple and easy to acquire materials, Alder and pine. Cheap and no excuses here: These projects are designed to be able to go from start to finish in one to two days, simple weekend projects that can be made from left over or scrap woods. Excluding finish I am using...

My first successful dovetail

07-02-2010 06:34 PM by Jim | 9 comments »

For several months I’ve been trying to master the elusive dovetail joint. The only thing I’ve been able to create is a whole lot of firewood kindling. It’s been a frustrating and trying experience. I’ve read many tutorials, reviewed the Pins first or Tails first debate. Looked at ways and jigs to keep the cuts in the correct plane and alternative methods to clear out the waste material. My joints were always too loose, too tight, not lined up correctly and nothing I tr...

Tool Review 23 gauge pinner

07-01-2010 07:07 PM by Kjuly | 2 comments »

I was in the Grand Rapids, Michigan, Woodcraft Store for a router class that I was teaching that afternoon. I intentionally arrived a few minutes early to look at their selection of 23 gauge pinners. I had read a post on www.woodweb.com about how the 23 gauge pinner was great for attaching trim. The woodweb post pointed out a few of the advantages that the 23 gauge headless nailers have over the 18 gauge nailer that is typically used to apply trim. I think the two main advantages are that sp...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #10: New Bandsaw and Other stuff

06-27-2010 12:24 AM by cmckerliesr | 6 comments »

First I guess I should cover a little of the the other stuff.So far this year the weather has made it hard to work in the can. Mostly as the weather got warmer, it was harder to spend any real quality time in the can. I am not sure if it was a difference in humidity or what. But it was just a lot hotter inside the can this year then it has since I have started working in it. The last month of so has been hard with lots of electrical storms in the area I am just not comfortable working inside ...

Available on line . . .free. . .www.avast.com I have been alerted a number of times, with a siren if you have your sound on and always a large round caution light and message. Pretty nice software.
