I thought I would try something different for bit storage this time. I grabbed one of those magnetic tool holders from Harbor Freight, cut a bunch of V-grooves into it with the bench grinder and bam, instant Forstner bit rack. What do you guys think?Enjoy! Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage
Have you ever had a project the needs little feet to get it off the table, but you only have wine corks? This happened to me recently, so I cut the corks into about 1/2 inch slices with my mini miter box and glued one in each corner of the project. To be sure they were level I rubbed the installed feet on a sheet of course sandpaper fixed to my flat work bench. Instant cork feet.
I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well?

One of the black hinge was broken so I need to replace that… You can also see the middle part of the hinge have an offset insert. Remove the pin then complete the missing ebony. Let the p...
i’m thinking of building a versatile well built workbench that has a lot of lighting. I don’t do much hand tools so it wouldn’t need to suit that. I also want to put it against the wall, I know its not the best place for a workbench, but i just want to have something for small projects so that i can have a well lit place to film. I want to put a few drawers in it and maybe some storage on the wall. What do you’ll think will best suit my shop. shop: http://lumber...
Because someone asked… making a cabriole leg, either round or squared isn’t nearly as hard as some think. First: make up your pattern…then draw it on the side and front of your leg stock. then proceed to cut it out ;)If you have a bandsaw, start on one side, leave a little (1/4”) uncut at the bottom of the cuts, so you’ll need to cut in from both ends. cut all of the cuts on this side like this, if there is an area on the “underside” (side a...
Varying Designs Using Sketchup, I had drawn a lot of possibilities for a 12 Rhombus combinations. Here is the photo of the one I like… Cutting the rhombus.Then, next step is cutting the rhombus.

AssemblySorting out according to colors and blend will shorten the time. Also the correct thickness will save time. G...

It is a good idea to clean your blades every once in a while. I try to do it every 6 months or so, unless it needs to happen sooner. We had a rare winter rainstorm and it blew open my workshop doors, drenching everything, so I also cleaned the rust off of my cast iron tabletops. Enjoy! Clean Your Tools!
