Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

11-10-2014 08:09 AM by sepeck | 5 comments »

Just as I was finishing ripping some lumber on my table saw, standing off the side slightly, the cut piece got bumped a bit as I hit the power switch. As the blade spun down the piece slowly rotated into the blade. I knew there was no chance of me moving in time. My t-shirt got ripped and I used quite a few paper towels to clean up the surface wound (not to mention OW!) on my stomach. My wife said she’d get me an apron for my birthday (and evidently REASONS!). Years ago I got to ...

Spackling Compound

Spackling Compound

11-30-2010 10:44 PM by BigDaddyO | 5 comments »

I’m sure most of you have used Spackling compound before. I must have tried dozens over the years and have never been happy with any of them. Either they don’t stick to the wall well, or they shrink too much, or they dry so hard it makes sanding difficult, or they don’t smooth well. I was at my local paint store and needed some more spackle to repair a water damaged ceiling joist. I picked up the only thing they had. MH Ready Patch. When I got it home and opened it...

Hello and this review carries my initial impressions of a fine carving knife made by Paul Beebe for Lee Valley Tools in Canada.

Opinels, Ken Onions, single edge razors, XActos…James Krenov wrote a great passage about using k...

Shopsmith 40 grit sanding discs (5")

Shopsmith 40 grit sanding discs (5")

09-29-2013 09:46 AM by Purrmaster | 5 comments »

I discovered these at Lowe’s about a year ago. Often I have need to sand out a defect and the lowest grit discs gets it done the most quickly. These discs are 8 hole, hook and loop (velcro) 5 inch discs. I’ve been very pleased with these discs. They cut pretty quickly and them seem to last a long time. Not as long as Abranet, but they’re pretty durable. These discs compare favorably with Diablo, 3M, and Norton (the other brands I’ve mostly used). These thi...

Great saw without dropping the big $$$$

Great saw without dropping the big $$$$

05-14-2012 12:18 PM by gardentiger | 5 comments »

Bought this saw at traditionalwoodworker.com. Did a lot of research and they had the best price. After playing with old Disston saws for a few years this is a real eye opener. This saw seemed more rigid and cut lots better. I stayed out in the shop and cut a few more pieces of lumber just because I enjoyed it so much. Highly recommend.

I finally decided to make the switch to a cabinet saw, thinking maybe magically it would make me a better woodworker? well I think the jury will be out for awhile on that one, but like the tool man Taylor I do have more power! I had it delivered to my local lumber yard, I cant thank them enough for helping me out this way!! I had these visions of my brand new magical saw comming in all dented and broken,but it arrived in great shape, so thanks to all the drivers that cared for my new toy on i...

16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw

11-23-2008 04:29 AM by Handi75 | 5 comments »

This is a New addition to Craftsman Scroll Saw Series. The first one that I had, I’ve only used it twice, and if it wasn’t for the Replacement Warranty that I purchased just in case, I wouldn’t have this replacement now. So far, this Version of their Scroll Saw has Held up very well. There are only a few complaints with it thou. 1. The table is a Little Small2. The Table Tilt only tilts up to 45 Degree to the left Only, Not both left and right3. It does not hav...

Another GRIZZLY

Another GRIZZLY

11-10-2009 02:26 AM by khop | 5 comments »

OK I couldn’t help myself. When I ordered the G1071 OSS sander, I went ahead and got this one too. Might as well round out the total order to a grand right? I had always wanted to get a larger beefyer belt and disc sander. I still have the old Delta 6×36 which will be used for pencil sharpening. lol. Now on to the pros and cons. Pros, IT”S A GRIZZLY, Heavy and very stable, strong and definately an upgrade from the Delta. It has good dust collection. Cast iron disc and tilt...

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

11-11-2012 03:22 AM by 47phord | 5 comments »

My wife and I both love Arts and Crafts furniture and as we get the funds to replace our old, kid-destroyed furniture we have pretty much decided that this is the style we want go with. So, I bought this DVD (actually a DVD-ROM for your computer) to get started. The whole thing is in PDF format and when you first open it on your computer you are greeted with an interactive menu organized by room; living room, dining room, bedroom along with other links to finishing, joinery (7 different art...
