Amazing Tools #14: Bridge City Tools Jointmaker Pro v2

12-20-2010 12:07 AM by Gary Fixler | 20 comments »

Well, this just shot to the top of my wishlist. I’ve for at least 6 years now been specifically wishing for a really accurate, really quiet way to cut wood in my house after hours, when I can’t run power tools due to neighbors close by here in crowded LA. Scroll to the bottom to watch the video, or watch it on YouTube in higher quality. It’s a bit crazy-priced right now at ~$1200, but I’m sure that’ll come down. For now, I’m dreaming of a few addition...

A gift from a friend, old saws.

10-23-2010 06:28 PM by PaBull | 14 comments »

In my business I have a friend, who’s dad was an old woodworker. The man is getting older. So yesterday my friend came by and said: “Here this toolbox is yours. So i opened the toolbox, and at first view not very exiting. But after I pulled out the tray, I found the treasure. And I started to pull out the saw’s one by one. Some of the not so old, but some are some cool looking ones. I have my work cut out, restoring some of these.

2nd Saw ??

09-18-2010 11:04 PM by majeagle1 | 13 comments »

I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...

MDB #1: Milling S3S ...yes, triangles.

08-02-2010 03:32 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here In Highschool I always doodled (I still am). and one of my favorite things was to use the squares on the math papers to form different geometries – mostly with triangles. as I was playing along, I discovered that I could form a star of david (Magen David) and that formation has stuck with me ever since. When I was introduced to the idea of making cutting boards out of wood, I always wanted ...

Cabinet Making #1: Looking At Actual Cabinet Construction

06-28-2010 05:30 AM by Tim Dorcas | 1 comment »

Last year I bought a half kitchen with the idea that I would add the cabinets to my workshop and give it an upgraded feel. (Right now everything is gray melamine which I got from an office that was being torn down.) When my wife saw that I was going to use the cabinets in my shop she immediately said they are too nice to get beat up in the shop. Too nice is a relative term. Let’s take a look. Here is an example of one of the cabinets. Here it is from different angle. Th...

Amazing Tools #11: The Robland Axis Ergo panel saw

05-19-2010 12:19 PM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

This thing quite literally wouldn’t fit in my garage. Take everything out of my garage right now, and take off a wall of your choosing, and you couldn’t slide this into it and replace the wall. I’m still putting it on my wishlist. Watch it in even higher resolution here.

My Tools #4: A new handle for my 3' crosscut saw

04-08-2010 05:31 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

When my chainsaw broke the other day, halfway through a log, I reached for a secret weapon I’ve not really brought out into the light in the exactly 6 months (as of today) since it arrived: my 36”, German, hand-hammered, regular-tooth, one-man crosscut saw from Traditional Woodworking. Here are pics from early October that I’ve had squirreled away. The saw was so much bigger than I’d even imagined, and I had imagined it even bigger than I would ever have imagined it to...

Design of a Static Table Saw

10-12-2009 11:46 PM by k1114n | 5 comments »

The aim of this project is to design and build a static-blade saw that replaces the rotating blade with a japanese handsaw blade which is very thin and removes little wood during the cut leaving a very thin ‘kerf’ (< 0.5mm). Japanese handsaws are well known to cut aggressively and unlike european saws they do so on the pull stroke. Also, the blades in japanese handsaws are designed to be easily removed from the handle. If this blade were fixed at a slight slope away from the in...

Amazing Tools #7: The Circular Swing Blade Mill

09-26-2009 11:44 AM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

Just stumbled upon these tonight. I’ve never seen them before. Very clever! It’s basically a band saw mill with a circular saw instead which can swing from horizontal to vertical blade alignment, and thus be run across a log 2 times to saw out a rectangular piece of dimensioned lumber. It helps to watch these 2 videos to understand what I mean: Obviously, no large through-cuts, so no very-wide slabs, but if you need to turn a big pile of pine, or a very huge tree into dime...
