The FREE bench vise for the adventurous.

16 days ago by jordanp | 7 comments »

I hadn’t planed on making a new vise this weekend. It all started when a friend called and said his dad had a broken down craftsman radial arm saw. He had asked if I wanted it because he was going to haul it off to the dump, of course my response was heck yes! That’s a free tool stand at minimum. I tore it down and used the stand for my bench top drill press.I took the motor off to keep just in case I needed a replacement for something down the line. My 3 yr old was very fas...

Got my first Lie-Nielsen. Why am I not excited?

28 days ago by Steve Diogo | 16 comments »

I got my first Lie-Nielsen tool today: A ¾ inch bevel-edge chisel. From everything I’ve read about Lie-Nielsen, I knew this would be an exciting day… a milestone that marked a new phase of working wood. I’ve lost hours looking at the Lie-Nielsen website and catalog, imagining the day I’d open my first LN box and hold the tool that would immediately jettison me into a new level of craftsmanship. After reading a great blog series on building a quality tool collection slowly (sorry, I’...

Intro & Shop Tour

32 days ago by iamcliff | 6 comments »

I have posted 8 videos on YouTube thus far and have never introduced myself. I enjoy watching other woodworkers introduction and shop tour videos, so I thought I might as well do one and get it over with. I give a few facts about myself in my home page here on Lumberjocks, but I go into a little more depth in the video. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIV_OyTaCo

Woodshop Build #2: My Space

43 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 8 comments »

A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...

Woodshop Build #1: Table Saw

53 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 5 comments »

Just like many woodworkers out there, I am obsessed with my tools. They perform a function in my shop but they are more than just functional. They provide a sense of pride and aesthetic beauty that only my fellow woodworkers can understand. We spend countless hours mulling over specs. reviews, online videos, pricing, and countless other factors to find that perfect addition to the shop. When we find that perfect hand tool or piece of machinery, we obsess over fine tuning, adding accessori...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #7: New tools are always a nice change to the shop... Hitachi Scroll Saw!

68 days ago by AngieO | 41 comments »

Yes… I can hear it now because I know what I would say… But I’ll just wait and let you say it ;) So… I have this friend that I’ve known since Jr High. He has had his own general contracting business and such and is now a maintenance guy for a local state institution. He can do it all. From woodworking to building a house. He is by far the best drywall guy I’ve ever seen. He has it mastered. Fast and looks great with hardly no sanding. He’s just go...

Tool study #3: "Buck Rogers" planes from Millers Falls - Part 1

201 days ago by toolmike | 2 comments »

Streamline moderne is a type of Art Deco architecture that emerged in the mid 1930s and lasted more than two decades. It emphasized curving forms, and moved beyond architecture into industrial design, and even tool design. Millers Falls developed a line of tools in the post-WWII years which were heavy influenced by streamline modern – and symbolic of the 1950s “atomic era”. It is defined by tools such as the No.100A automatic push drill, the No.104 geared hand drill, and the...
