Bench Cookies from Rockler

Bench Cookies from Rockler

07-27-2009 01:40 AM by handi | 12 comments »

I got the chance to try out Rockler’s new Bench Cookies over the weekend. Bench Cookies are like hockey pucks with rubber faces. They act like a routing mat to keep parts from sliding around as you sand or rout them. The difference is that Bench Cookies lift the part up about 1” off the work surface so that you have clearance for bearing bits or cut throughs. They work surprisingly well, I sanded and routed parts on them with complete confidence. I even covered them in sa...

Bed Hardware

Bed Hardware

12-22-2010 12:42 AM by Tadd | 12 comments »

While building a bed for my wife, I struggled with how to connect the bed rails to the headboard and the footboard. I stumbled on this new product from Rockler. The connection hardware uses a threaded insert that is screwed into the headboard and footboard. A mating bolt is then screwed into the insert. You have to drill a hole through the rail to another hole drilled perpendicullarly into the rail. A nut and a curved washer tighten the rail to the headboard or footboard. The hardwa...

Handy Self-Adhesive Discs - Discontinued Item

Handy Self-Adhesive Discs - Discontinued Item

As a “back-in-the-day” woodworker, I was always annoyed with carpet tape. Too thick, too much stick, and too much residue. But, that is what we had. Turners’ tape? Don’t know much about it. But, on a whim, I tossed Rockler's Double-Sided Self-Adhesive Discs into the My Cart with an order. Ho-hum, they arrived, but now, Wow. I have been on a jig building kick lately. I can say the little sticky stinkers have ridden over, under, around, and through almost eve...

Non-slip router mat - Sometimes little things make a difference

Non-slip router mat - Sometimes little things make a difference

07-23-2008 07:07 AM by Llarian | 11 comments »

I have to admit, I feel a little silly writing a review for what’s basically a heavy duty carpet pad. However, as a new woodworker who doesn’t have luxurys like a workbench with a tail vice and bench dogs, sometimes the little things can make a huge difference. Using a router is a little difficult if your workpiece keeps sliding around, not to mention dangerous. This thing really solves the problem. Throw it on top of your tablesaw, put your workpiece on top of it, and go to...

Unique idea for workholding

Unique idea for workholding

I saw a lot of press about these online as I’m sure that many of you have. I was at Rockler one day picking up some other things and I picked these up also just to check them out. I used them for the first time yesterday and I was really impressed. I was working on a 40” x 8” board so I put a bench cookie in each of the corners. I was able to use a random orbit sander and a belt sander with no problems at all. I’ll admit that I was nervous when I first set the belt ...

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the rockler bench cookies. Now I got some of these about 4 weeks ago and they work pretty good. I have used them when I was sanding and the one thing I realized is that anything that is smaller than 8 in long and 7 in wide its a lot harder to control. You can get 4 bench cookies for $12 at rockler.com

A part of the Rockler Bench Cookie Challenge I won a set of bench cookies and a mug. They finally arrived last week. I will blog about the cookies later . . . but now I want to speak about the mug. I am a big tea drinker and I found that with most mugs I had around the house I would have to go and get a refill as there just was not enough in one cup. Well . . . let me tell you something. This Rockler mug rocks! When I opened the package I saw the mug box and thought “pretty big box ...

Maybe round isn't such a good idea...

Maybe round isn't such a good idea...

I just got this (for myself) for Christmas. Took it out of the package, took it to the shop, set it on the bench, turned away for something or other, and it rolled off the bench straight to the floor. Dinged up the marking wheel pretty good. It still makes a mark, but not as crisp as it should be. It’s my own fault for dropping it, but I’m thinking that the best designed tools shouldn’t roll, and that the brass body on this thing should have six or eight sides. It would...

Still the best buy in sharpening!

Still the best buy in sharpening!

This jig was invented by a pure genius. I don’t know who he (or she) was, but whoever made it was sharper than a stropped chisel. There is no brand name on the thing, and lots of places sell it. I got mine from Rockler for $16 bucks and when you compare it to the other jigs out there, it’s a steal for all that it can do. Here’s a little video about it: Here's a great article about how to tune it up. (For more entertaining reviews and, of course new episodes of Blu...
