Torque Work Centre #1: The Torque Has Landed!

1603 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 11 comments »

Up until now, our friends “Down Under” have been having all the fun. Not any more. The Torque Work Centre is finally available in Lubbock, Texas. That may not excite you, but it certainly does me since I now have one of those fantastic tools. It is the first in the US, but I promise it won’t be the last. As degoose has already shared, we are a dealer for the machine. For information, send me a PM, and I’ll get back to you. I had the privilege of attending the taping...

My Workshop and office project

1944 days ago by majeagle1 | 11 comments »

Well, this is my first “blog” so I will give it a go. I was just going to post some pictures of my workshop as it is now, but then I ran into the pictures of entire process so I thought it might be interesting. The workshop is 20×30 with a 10×20 office space inside as well. The ground had to be prepared and then foundation and then I had “Tuff Shed” bring in my “workshop kit”. ( I provided them with full scale drawings and plans that I did on Auto cad ) They had the building up ...

Amazing Tools #10: There's more than one way to split a log...

1568 days ago by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

My recent battle with the cheap electric chainsaw, and subsequent redesign of my 36” crosscut saw’s handle have seen several people recommending I rive my huge logs with a simple wedge and sledgehammer system. I’d seen it done before, but had always thought the splits were messy – not an issue if I’m just making some turning blanks. I also feared that such shock-treatment of the logs would lead to microcracks and extra checking later. I’m probably just bein...

Extremely Average #15: I have just two questions

1650 days ago by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment” -Jim Rohn I thought I would spend the day continuing to work on my Krenov saw horses, since I didn’t have any new DVDs or books on woodworking. For those that stopped by hoping to see a rant about John Lively’s company The Taunton Press, you will be disappointed to know that I am too happy today to gripe about their inefficiency. Because Monday is a holiday, I won’t get them be...

this artisan house #3: two more for the kitchen

2686 days ago by scottb | 10 comments »

Now I have a pair of tongs and a pair of spurtles right next to the stove. Why do I seem to be making my own tools in pairs? At least I think I’ll get more use out of the tongs than the (so far unused) spurtles. At least they were educational when I was learning how to turn them! I won’t stop at two tongs though. I have a pair of whisk style tongs with plastic handles that have broken. I should be able to epoxy the business end of the tool into a matching oak handle. The...

Batteries, Batt...ttt..eries, Batt...t...t..eries - why wilt you die...

2162 days ago by PurpLev | 10 comments »

power… give me more power… I’ve had this cordless dewalt set for several years, and in the last year It has been stored most of the time. I have 3 18v batteries that would rotate between the tools, so I would always have a fresh battery to swap with… until recently – all 3 batteries died, don’t hold a charge – and in the last week won’t even charge at all … AAARRRGGGGHHH…. so now I have a collection (9) of pretty yellow tools t...

a day at the woodworking auction

2651 days ago by dennis mitchell | 10 comments »

About 10 or 11, I got my first “real” job. My grandfather had an auction house. All types of strange and wonderful objects passed through there. Lots of strange and wonderful people found their way their too. I was always on the end of a sofa or moving a box. I did a mans work…well kinda. I have pretty much stayed away from auctions most my life simply because I don’t need more junk. Today I made an exception. A local cabinet maker was “downsizing”. I was h...
