Because my workshop is in my garage and space is at a premium, I have had to make use of available space for storing some of my power tools. In this photo, You can see my compound mitre saw sitting high on a shelf near the ceiling, and my router table hangs from that shelf by two sturdy chains. It is out of the way, giving me as much floor space as possible in my confined workshop.

I found out about Andrew Crawford via an article somewhere here at Lumerjocks. For those who don’t know, he is a master box maker. I joined his mailing list at fine-boxes.com fine-boxes.com/ and just received his newsletter with a link to his article “A Riddle in the Sand”. Very, very interesting. In the article, Mr. Crawford argues that abrasives have evolved rapidly in recent decades and should be part of the toolkit of any woodworker, not just for finishing and p...
I guess the shipping changes aren’t so bad, since it weighs 1000 lbs.
I’m going to do a half lap with a cross cut, chisel paring, and followed through with a shoulder plane. Now if you didn’t know better, you might be thinking I’m an Olympic diver getting ready to execute a stunning high dive. But alas, I am not. I’m a woodworker, and this is a structural joint and the tools I will use to make a simple, yet strong woodworking joint. The Half Lap is a joint used to connect two intersecting pieces of wood. Each piece of wood is sawn to half its thickness. Whe...
Here is a super simple project that I made with some scrap lumber I saved from a remodel job last week. Our garage has been needing some more shelves so I figured these could be put to good use, I was right. I know to a lot of people here this project will seem silly and to easy but I bet someone out there is looking for the very basics. Thanks for watching!
In my above video, Frank Klausz takes us into his new workshop and shows his amazing method for speedy “pins first” hand cut through dovetails with hand tools. This is a continuation of the tour that I shared of Frank’s new woodworking workshop. Watch the video tour of Frank’s workshop here Watch Frank Klausz use his Monster Molding plane here Before you email me, please first look at the bottom of this article for a list of all the tools that Frank mentioned in the videos. ...
A question was asked of me by Shoptinker on how I set up an Incra Miter gauge for the TS. I thought it might be an interesting topic so I thought I would post it here for others to weigh in on it. Let me do the usual disclaimer and state that there are many many techniques that we woodworkers use to kink a store-bought jig to his/her personal train of thought. This is just my take. Dan, I originally bought this thing thinking that I would be putting miles of lumber though it in the fi...
Frank from http://www.pozsgaidesigns.com/gallery.htm had told me to try a clear packing tape to use to just hold patterns to wood; as I sawed it. He claimed it also helped the saw to work better. I had always just used candle wax on my blades from stubs— It helped a lot too. Well I finally tried it today! If you have not tried it; you do not realize how much it helps! It outdoes the candle wax! THANKS FRANK! I had some letters to cut from oak faced plywood that...
