Workshop upgrades #1: Glenn Drake saves the day...twice.

03-06-2011 05:33 AM by RGtools | 6 comments »

I am currently building a small shelf out of Alder and some mystery white wood to house some of my finer tools so that I do not have to go into my larger cabinet to get them all the time. This is part of a larger initiative to keep my sharp tools sharp and accessible, as someone who only uses hand tools most of the time this is about as critical to my work-flow as paying the power bill before someone fires up their table saw. Roughly six hours got me to this point. I really did not take a...

Dave's Workshop #5: ZCI for My Benchtop Tablesaw

11-03-2014 10:01 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »
