I am looking for a Barometer and Hygrometer to build a desk-top widget. Woodcraft sells instruments for this kind of project. BUT! They are too small. I am looking for round instruments that are 3” in diameter with an added mounting flange around the circumference about a quarter inch in width. I would like the instrument to protrude from the mounting no more than three eights of an inch. Any sources??

I have been doing a little research into a bowl finish that will handle boiling water. I e-mailed General Finish and here’s the exchange: Me: Is General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish, when cured, safe to use for applications that come in contact with boiling water? GF: ... a better product would be our new water base wood turners finish, it is water base and has no odor- so you would not have to wait a month to use it. I would still wait a good two weeks for the product to cure befo...
By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I share a tip that Roy Underhill taught me about how to tighten my loose hewing hatchet’s head. A few months ago, while filming a DVD in his school, I took the opportunity to ask Roy a question that I couldn’t find an answer to. He shared his advice, and I’ve been eager to test it out. He taught me that even though I already had a wooden wedge I could add a second metal wedge (at a diagonal) to add extra ti...

Last month as a condolence prize for turning 30 years old I received from my in-laws a few items from my Amazon “woodworking” wishlist. I’ll admit i sorta milked this whole turning 30 thing because my friends and family really did some damage to my woodworking wish list (sadly no sawstop). So today I’m reviewing the Wixey Mini Digital Height Gauge. These can be found at your local Rockler right now on sale for $20 so not a huge investment. Thanks for the battery Wi...

I just wanted to let everyone know, in case they don’t already. At our Used Tool Store we sometimes need to make repairs on tools in order to resell them. When we need parts we go to Tool Parts Direct (toolpartsdirect.com) This is the best way that we have found to get parts for tools. If you go to the website and type in the brand and model number you will get a blown-apart schematic of almost any tool ever made. (Click on the schematic for a full sized view). There is also a parts...
One of my Christmas gifts is due in tomorrow, a Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide, my kids got it for me via a gift card. I made these Glass Sheets along with the honing guide to use in the Scary Sharp system. I use the 3M micro-abrasives as specified over at Brent's Sharpening Pages. The glass is 3/32”x6”16” and the boards are from a pile of oak shorts I purchased a while back. The boards are 3/4”x6 1/2”x19” and the dowels are to keep the sheet from moving dur...
Howdy Folks, It’s been a little while since I posted the last blog on the wine rack and it will probably be longer yet till I get the next one out. Here are a few quick pics and such on the finishing process I’m experimenting with…First I taped off the parts that will be a future glue joint. I don’t want the finish the obstruct the glue’s ability to bond the two surfaces together. Then I put on a coat of some good ol’ BLO.. After a day or so (or u...
