Fein removes tub surround

1879 days ago by EricWrights | 4 comments »

I had been holding off buying this tool for several years. Recently one of my customers in whose house I had installed a fiberglass tub surround had a crack appear in the soap dish of the unit. The company sent someone out to fix the crack as the surround was still within the twenty year guarantee period. The repair failed within a year and the company at its option decided to replace the complete surround. When I install these surrounds I use twice the amount of adhesive that is supplied by ...

Dear Sweetie

1592 days ago by HighRockWoodworking | 14 comments »

Saturday I came in from the shop and went upstairs to see what my wife was doing. She asked if the floor had dried downstairs as she had just mopped. When I went back down I realized that I had tracked sawdust all over her freshly mopped floor. This made me start thinking about what a woodworkers spouse has to go through on a daily basis and decided to write this letter as a spoof. Hope you enjoy. Dear sweetie,I just wanted to write you this letter to tell you that I love you unconditi...

a day at the woodworking auction

2685 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...

Got an excuse to buy a Riser Block..

1776 days ago by Rick Boyett | 8 comments »

A couple of months ago, I bought this bandsaw off Craigslist. It’s a great little Grizzly BS. A couple of weeks ago I bought about 50 bd ft of Black Walnut from a fella at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX for only $2.00 a bd ft. (killer deal). I think I forgot how big the opening is for my BS. Looks like I’ll be buying a riser block and new BS blades now. I’m going to use this lumber to build a baby crib..

The FREE bench vise for the adventurous.

151 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...

New to the hobby, a look inside the beginners mind. #1: the first few tools in the shop

2427 days ago by Jason Wheeler | 6 comments »

I have to say setting up a wood shop is just as much work and cash, if not more, then setting up a steel shop. Luckily a few of the steel tools are useful and will come in handy to the wood shop. I have also a few tools from a set of cedar drafting drawers I built oh, 5 years back. It was a one time thing and at the time living in an apartment, dust was every where. All I really had was a Dewalt biscuit joiner and a random orbital sander, that was it. A pic of the cedar drawers, mmmm they ...

Tools of the Trade - The Evolution of My Woodworking Tools

539 days ago by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

Every wood worker has to start somewhere. My somewhere began with the purchase of a Shop Smith and this began the evolution of my woodworking tools. My mother and father had a friend that was selling their Shop Smith multi tool system back in the mid 1990’s and I was lucky enough to purchase it. This Shop Smith is perfect for doing small projects but not big construction jobs like I was used to. I decided that buying this system gave me a reason to put my creativeness to work and begin doing ...
