Winky-Lift Router Lift by Winky's Woodworking LLC

10-06-2016 03:16 AM by Mork | 36 comments »

This review is of a product I am selling (can I review my own product?) I need to get this information out there and so far my relatively small business doesn’t have the budget that allows mass marketing and advertising. This router lift is completely unique in that it mounts in the cabinet below the the table rather than to the bottom of the table top (or inset). The biggest advantage to this design is that it can be used in a lift top router table! Yep… no more bending ov...

Entertaining, occasional rambling,  sometimes Jay is hard to hear

Entertaining, occasional rambling, sometimes Jay is hard to hear

10-04-2016 09:31 PM by Rick M | 6 comments »

I thought I would review some woodworking (and related) podcasts. I often prefer podcasts over music while in the shop or on drives. This is my 3rd woodworking related podcast. [A note about the rating … There is no reason this isn’t a 4 or 5 star podcast depending on the criteria. Since the name is, The Woodworking Podcast, I feel obligated to review it as such and relative to the 360 or Shop Talk podcasts which have stronger woodworking content and standalone. Some of you wi...

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

08-22-2016 01:26 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

I thought about blogging this, but didn’t know if that was the right spot to put it. Here’s my shameless plug for using paste wax/car wax for woodworking! I am not particular to one brand over another. They all work quite well. The main thing that makes them good is the carnauba wax. This is a really tough wax that stays in place for a long(er) amount of time. I use car wax on my steel surfaces, such as my tablesaw, jointer, bandsaw, etc. This protects them from rust, and...

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet - vintage book review

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet - vintage book review

12-10-2014 06:18 AM by Rick M | 2 comments »

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet is a book of illustrations detailing everything you should have, could have, or did, learn about woodworking in your high school industrial arts program. [TLDR version: fledgling woodworkers should get a copy of this book or read it online for free.] Ever wanted to predict which way a stick of lumber will warp? Curious why heartwood is more stable than sapwood? Cramlet crams much useful information about how trees grow, why and how lumber warps, how t...

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

10-21-2014 07:51 PM by gfernandez | 13 comments »

Two years ago I took a woodworking class here in NC with Gregory Paolini and built a bow arm Morris chair (see attached picture). Although there were a few bumps along the way, the main one being he was short an instructor and we all went home with unfinished pieces, it was still a great time and the 6 of us learned a ton of useful woodworking knowledge. Greg was also readily available via phone and email with the many questions I had after the class ended regarding getting my project complet...

Cuts Like a Dream

Cuts Like a Dream

09-23-2014 02:10 AM by grfrazee | 4 comments »

For those of you who don’t know, LJ Wally331 is currently a senior in high school. He also happens to be rather skilled at making hand saws. I commissioned Chris to make me a 10”, 14 TPI dovetail saw. It has a brass back, hand-shaped African bloodwood handle, and hand-filed teeth. The saw’s split nuts are hand made as well. To put it simply, this saw cuts wonderfully. I had no problem sawing parallel lines down a piece of scrap pine and walnut, and the saw rode bea...

Excellent budget-friendly compressor for brad nailing and tire inflation

Excellent budget-friendly compressor for brad nailing and tire inflation

05-08-2014 03:32 AM by ikillbugs | 7 comments »

Recently I was heading to a big box store to pick up a Porter-Cable 6-gal air compressor but stopped into a local pawn shop first to see what they had to offer. I walked out with this cute little compressor for $25 (it is only $69 new at Home Depot or Amazon, with accessories). I figured it’ll be a nice starter compressor to run a cheap HFT brad nailer, and the price could not be beat. I could upgrade later if need be. Since I have no immediate plans to buy a framing nailer or spraye...
