Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

10-24-2009 06:14 AM by Daniel Dugan | 3 comments »

I was considering building/installing 2×4 sandwiched in 1×4 shelving for wood storage (featured in FWW #181) when I encountered this system on Lee Valley website. Time is precious to me and I would rather build furniture than wood racks, so I decided I would give this a try. I ordered the 4’ standards, fast mount brackets and the connectors as well as 10” and 14” shelf brackets. I installed three eight foot sections tonight in about an hour. The fast mount brack...

Trend T4 Plunge Router

Trend T4 Plunge Router

07-21-2009 01:57 AM by tenontim | 12 comments »

I bought one of these routers about 10 months ago. It’s the first and only plunge router that I own, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. I guess the thing that I like the most is the size to power ratio. I think it’s listed at about 8 lbs and puts out just over 1 HP. It’s very well made and easy to operate, with it’s variable speed motor and smooth plunge mechanism. It has a plunge stop with 3 different settings. Comes with a very nice oversize guide, ...

The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker's Reflections

The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker's Reflections

Author: George Nakashima$31.68 as of this writing at Amazon Given the price of this book I feel strongly that you should know that this is not a woodcrafting book with plans and designs. This book, written by Nakashima himself, is a great overview of a great career and a wonderful talent. The first half of the book is especially enlightening. It is a short biography of Nakashima’s early years and shows how these experiences directly influenced his works. When I first saw the book I t...

The "All-Inclusive" book on the topic of dust control

The "All-Inclusive" book on the topic of dust control

07-05-2009 09:03 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Author: Sandor Nagyszalanczy$14.93 at Amazon as of this writing Ok, you’ve got to be getting pretty specific if you are looking at buying a book solely written about what is technically a huge vacuum cleaner! However, as woodworkers, we should all be concerned with doing it healthily for ourselves and anyone else in our shops. If you need this information it is a good thing that someone has compiled this book for you. Sandor does a great job of taking this topic and logically cove...

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

07-05-2009 08:53 AM by Durnik150 | 6 comments »

I have accrued a lot of woodworking books over the last 3 years or so and avidly read as much as I can about my favorite hobby. I occasionally sell some pieces so got hold of this book. This book is available at Amazon for $15.63 as of this writing. The author is Dan Ramsay. First off, not everyone needs this book. If you enjoy woodworking for the relaxation, the craft, or as gifts, you don’t need this book. If you are actually trying to make a profit or are seriously considering ...

JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

04-07-2009 08:57 PM by CharlieD | 13 comments »

Recently, I bought the JacPac CO2 portable compressor product and it sat in my shop for a couple of months before I used it. I like it a lot and will use it a lot… going forward. It is very handy when you have to do work outside a location where you have a compressor or one with no electricity. I took it to a house where I needed to finish up a small job. I took my Bostitch 15 gauge angle nailer and 18 gauge PC. I took the 18 guage because I thought it might not drive the 2 inch ...

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

04-01-2009 02:57 PM by littlecope | 3 comments »

It being April Fool’s Day, I couldn’t resist reviewing this old dandy! The restaurant I worked at in 1999 was housed in an 1800’s built brick factory building. My Parents say that when they were young it had been a meat packing and processing plant and in the basement there were tracks and hooks for transporting sides of beef and what not. Also in the basement was a corner that was devoted to a small carpenter’s shop and it was there that I found this baby collecting d...

Storage Units

Storage Units

02-27-2009 05:44 PM by Randy Sharp | 10 comments »

These little gadgets (cans) are recycled from another use, but come in very handy in the storage of misc. nuts, bolts, washers, etc. I own a small collection of these storage devices myself. This company produces several colors, versions and sizes. Other companys also produce these economical units.
