Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit, and UseBy: Toshio Odate ISBN-10: 0941936465 ISBN-13: 978-0941936460 This book is one of the most inspiring woodworking tools books I have read. Toshio Odate has a ability to tell what you want to know, what you need to know and still spice it with stories from his life, Japanese history and myths. This he do in the wonderful tone of a craftsman with a solid long apprenticeship under the wings of a master (his father) and a long lif...

The Workbench Design Book

The Workbench Design Book

The Workbench Design BookBy: Christopher Schwartz ISBN-10: 1558708405 ISBN-13: 978-1558708402 This book is really a landmark in workbench books for me. The workbench design book is a book that takes you on a tour in workbenches; we get a little historical insight, some geographical insight and the chance to see what workbenches some of the top guides of the trade are using. My personal favorite are with no doubt the 21st-century Workbench, this bench is so rock solid and well tho...

Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

08-05-2011 04:58 PM by mafe | 20 comments »

This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug). The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product. Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

Happen to be in the paint department of the local big box store and saw these little beauties. They will fit on all cans, pint,quart, gallon all you have to do is clip them on the inner rim of the can. I tried them on a little can of of sealcoat and it works perfectly. No spilling or finishing going down the side of the can. Cost around 99 cents.

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Received my copy of the new WoodWhisperer book, Finishing, It ain't over till it's over... by Marc Spagnuolo.. A no nonsense approach to a very important part of any project… the finishing… Marc takes a subject many of us cringe about and shows us, in his inimitable style, how to make the most of various finishing techniques… from the initial preparation to the final buff… This book does not bog us down with technical jargon and formulas but gives us a c...

Ni-Cad Battery Rebuild

Ni-Cad Battery Rebuild

05-11-2011 02:57 AM by C_PLUS_Woodworker | 14 comments »

One of the things that really gets to me with the current trend to Lith-Ion batteries is that so many perfectly good tools are being trashed because buying a new drill with a new charger and 2 new batteries is not much more money that just buying replacement batteries. I personally just cannot chuck a perfectly good tool because of a battery issue, regardless of the price differential on a new tool. It goes against everything I am and how I feel towards tools that have served me well. Ex...

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

03-19-2011 12:10 PM by Tedstor | 24 comments »

Want a cheap way to check the “squareness” of machine fences, table saw blades, drill press chucks, and any other 90# angle in the shop?? Check out this set of 1-2-3 blocks. I bought this pair off Amazon for $10ish bucks several months ago. Several different types of these blocks are available from different manufacturers at widely varying price points. This model, was the cheapest. However, I can’t seem to find any flaws despite the low price. I’m sure the expensive ...
