”Wood meets Felt” aka “Woodworker Meets Hatmakers” I’ve been trying to fit into my spare time the tedious work of making of several different hatmaking tool prototypes. Each of them has come along as a result of a custom hatmaker asking for one, and so I have met some cool folks that are passionately working at something they love doing. Hopefully, all of us will get tired of ball caps at some point and look for a style that is better looking, and actually...

Thank you Papaw for the memories! Come join me on a treasure hunt into the deep recesses of Papaw’s toolbox! There are some unexpected discoveries that will thrill the mind and soul. I hope that you enjoy.
We are adding on to our shop! My dad and I have been talking about it for a while and have finally pulling the trigger! Our current shop is 44’ by 36’ (1,584 square feet), and every inch of that space is occupied. Here’s what it looks like right now: We will be adding 12’ to each side and 12’ on the back. It will then be 60’ wide and 56’ long (3,360 square feet). The extra 12’ on each side will be separated by a wall from the middle (large) r...

Again I am plagued with long work days. I’m on a dinner break with one more work meeting tonight. Given this, I thought I would continue the discussion from yesterday. I’m really longing for some shop time. There are a number of factors that you should consider before you decide to purchase an old plane and once you have purchased it if you should restore it. Old hand planes can be found be found in a wide variety of places including garage sales, flea markets, antique store...
Welcome to my first ever blog. This was going to be a series of 3 blogs, but it took so little time to undertake the work, I have condensed it into a single document. The blog is about the WIXEY Angle Gauge, Saw fence Digital Readout and the Planer depth gauge All three items arrived from the European distributor yesterday by courier. So first the WIXEY ANGLE GAUGE/METER There is not much to do with this unit when it arrives – just remove the battery cover, insert the bat...
Craftsman-Sears, is like Charlie Sheen, either you love them, or you hate them. But I fall into a category that Ithink many fall into: The quiet MAJORITY. We know what we want, can afford, and can live with. Each time I get a new tool, I increase my productivity and ability to overcome problems with workable solutions because I have the tooling that allows me to use alternative techniques. As a new woodworker, with only six years experience, Craftsman, has been a big part of my wood worki...
Addendum: I have had my Powermatic for two years now and have planed hundreds of boards it is still working flawlessly. I have not as yet rotated the cutters. My only objection is the loud clunk it makes at the start. I wish they would have added a soft start to the motor. Yes, this is an expensive tool, but if you are going to work in your shop several days a week, like I do, it is a joy to use and makes woodworking much more fun. After 30 years of using my trusty Makita 400mm ...
