Amazing tool for designing awesome end grain cutting boards!

06-19-2017 03:01 PM by jaketodaro | 6 comments »

I build this web-based tool to design cutting boards. It was inspired by cbdesigner, but is web based and supports many different types of patters beyond the basic checkerboard style patterns like chevrons, basket-weaves, pinwheels, and more. Try it out and let me know what you think! http://www.cuttingboarddesigner.com/

My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project #3: Published Articles: The Walnut Box

06-16-2017 01:29 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I think I mentioned that I’ve been writing articles about woodworking in Esperanto for a nation-wide newsletter. The newest articles are only available to members of the organization, but after a few months they are available to anyone. I figure after a few years I can publish these articles as a collectiion, probably as an eBook. Every penny helps buy sandpaper and glue! In case anyone is interested in seeing what a proper woodworking article looks like in Esperanto, I thought I...

My 5 Most Used RIDGID Cordless Tools

06-15-2017 05:49 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Not sure if any of you saw the cache of RIDGID tools I got a while back, but I have been trying all of them out for a few months and these are the 5 that I found really changed the way I work the most. I also include some really brief insight into each of the tools. These wouldn’t be the first 5 tools I would buy, but once you have a pretty well stocked shop, these are some good ways to TREAT YO SELF! Thanks for watching, please like, share, and subscribe… View on YouTube Wood...

Handtool Basics #4: East Meets West - The Dozuki vs The Pistol Grip Back Saw

06-15-2017 03:21 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Whelp, looks like it time for another hand tool shootout, and this time it is time for a little east meets west action. Dozuki vs Pistol Grip Western Saw. I have always just kind of used both, I really find that they both have an important place in my workflow, but I took a second to figure out whats what between the two. This is really down to personal preference, and some of these opinions might just be facts about the ubiquitous Z saw and Veritas iterations of these tools. There are...

Hand Tool Shootout | Preparing Rough Sawn Lumber by Hand vs. the Machines

05-20-2017 06:06 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

My usual routine is somewhat hybrid, I typically do the bulk of the removal of material with the jointer and planer, then square it up at my cross cut sled, and finally remove the scallops from the planer with a smoothing plane, and shoot the ends to final dimensions to fit. But for the purpose of demonstration, I prepared these two overly dry (20 years in a barn) air dried Walnut by hand and then with my machines to see how long each process took. End of the day 7 minutes with the machin...

American Made #1: American Made - Episode 1 - Atlas 46 - Tactical Tool Gear

02-25-2017 09:26 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 7 comments »

The unsung heroes of the tool world here in the United States are companies that resist the pressure to offshore their manufacturing and lose control of their quality standards. Not just companies that ship a bunch of parts in to the US and stamp Made in USA on it, but products designed, sourced, and manufactured right here in the USA. Made with hardworking American Blood Sweat and Beers. This video series is going to look at some of these companies around the United States, but why not ...

Woodworking, is not "just" woodworking

02-21-2017 04:36 PM by Jack McKee | 3 comments »

Introduction When I was about 50 I wrote my first little book, Builder Boards. I started writing in the morning, and I’d have lunch around noon. Then I’d work for another hour, but that was it. I found if I was trying to finish up a chapter and worked longer, nothing would get done. After a certain point I could write no more. However, if I went down to my shop and did something, anything, those things I’d been writing often fell into place and I’d be ready to go ...

Woodworking with Kids, my first class

02-19-2017 04:00 PM by Jack McKee | 1 comment »

Woodworking with Kids, my first class The excitement and interest of my own kids about using tools, about building, and about woodworking taught me how competent kids could be and inspired me to volunteer to do woodworking at my sons’ school. My plan was for the children to arrive with an idea of something to build and I would help them build it. From woodworking with my own kids I knew enough to collect a workbench, kid-...
