Woodshop Build #2: My Space

149 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

159 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!

173 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 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

307 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...

Adjustable Angle Shooting Board

329 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 5 comments »

Create a shooting board that doesn’t cut just at one angle. Using some scrap wood and a couple of bolts you can create a shooting board that cuts multiple angles. Check out the video HERE! Sorry about the “scratchy effect”. Something happened while uploading and i can’t figure out how to fix it.

Card Scraper Version 2

348 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

I decided to make a card scraper out of a thinner material using a handsaw from a yard sale for $1. I can tell a big difference in the flex from the handsaw blade and the table saw blade. I’ll be using both for a bit and seeing which one I like better. Click here for the video on YouTube. And please subscribe. Edit: I can’t embed video on here at the moment, I will keep trying.
