Hi, I’ve always wanted to go to a tool show. but they always end up 6 or 8 hours away, this one was @ 1 hour away and 15 minutes from my in-laws house ( so we stayed over night and my father in law went with me). well; some pretty swell tools, I want this saw by Blackburn tools and I want the shooting plane by Lie-Nielson which you can almost see at the left back of the bench in this shot; some nice planes and interesting wood at interesting prices ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #4: Thunked-up Skilsaw 3410-02 Fence Fix

09-23-2014 01:12 PM by technoslick | 3 comments »

About a year ago, when I finally decided a hammer and chisel wasn’t enough to remodel the house, I drove on down to our local Lowe’s and plopped down my hard-earned (credit card) money on the counter for a Skilsaw model 3410-02 Contractor Table Saw. I forget the amount of damage done at the time—it can be considered a foregone conclusion that this was the beginning of a huge tab to come—but while it was a lot of bananas for me for the cheapest of the table saws offered...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #3: Makita Banana

09-22-2014 11:11 PM by technoslick | 5 comments »

So, it finally occurred to me that I should be looking to Craigslist for used tool deals. It’s not like I didn’t know I should. Sometimes, it takes more twacks from the two-by-four. I live in a rural area, in the middle of nowhere, equidistant from anything important. It took a bit of search engine extortion to get listings for my fair little cow country. The best deal was a Makita Model 5008NBA 8-1/4” Circular Saw (less blade) for twenty-five bucks: No...

A Strategy for Woodworking #22: Curiosity

08-29-2014 02:39 AM by Gary Rogowski | 1 comment »

What causes us to look round the next bend? What makes people want to fly or cross the ocean or play with fire? Why do you do something and then do it again just to see if the results will be the same? Why ask why? All these questions are asked because of a simple if not altogether human trait. This urge pushes us to try things to see what will happen. Like a dog putting his head down between the rocks to sniff out a scent. What is there? What was there? What might be there? Is it that ...

Old Tools

06-23-2014 11:42 PM by Jagadeeswara | 3 comments »

I have always had a passion for restoring things. One of my favourite activities is the resuscitation of old tools. Not only for the beauty of displaying them, but to give them a new sense of purpose and put them to good use. I pick up old tools at any chance I find. They can be from friends or family that no longer have a use or interest for them. I have found many tools cast away as rubbish and one of my favourite pastimes is routing through piles of rusty parts at secondhand markets. &#...

A Strategy for Woodworking #1: Joinery Details

06-16-2014 06:14 PM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

Joinery is the art of knowing what wood to remove and what to leave behind. Reductive & simple, yet seductive in its intricacies balancing negative space with strength. Take too much wood away and you leave no strength. Take too little and you’ve compromised the tenon. You are the joinery designer/ engineer. There are several important details to know about wood and its properties. Double a board’s measure in height and it is twice as strong as doubling a board in its width. Hmm. Wood ...

My Beginning Days #4: Grizzly Tent Sale #1

05-20-2014 02:00 PM by Kaa162 | 8 comments »

I went to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend in PA. It was quite the experience. First, I spoke to a rep on the phone who suggested that I get there about an hour ahead of time… Try 2-3 hours. By the time we go there, there were at least 200 people in front of us. By the time the tent sale opened, the line was SUPER long. When the clock struck 8am, you have never witnessed a line move as fast as this one. We were so far back and yet it took seconds ...
