Outstanding chest hinges from Nathan's Forge

Outstanding chest hinges from Nathan's Forge

200 days ago by mpmitche | 3 comments »

I recently completed a six board chest and needed a nice set of hinges. Being disappointed with what I could find at the local retail outlets I looked around the internet and was pleased to find Nathan’s Forge. He customized the hinges to fit the 5/4 boards I used, delivered them quickly, and provide great looking matching screws for mounting. He even included a complete set of two lengths of screws. The detail of the hinges is great with the top edges chamfered nicely. The pair ma...

Inspiring Aspirations

Inspiring Aspirations

1130 days ago by lysdexic | 3 comments »

I just finished “A Cabinetmaker’s Notebook” by James Krenov. This was his first book and published 35 years ago in 1976. I chose to read it because many of the reviews consider it a classic, he is well known personality in woodworking, and I like his understated but elegant style. Other than seeing Krenov style hand planes and his quotes as lumberjock signatures, I really didn’t know much about him. Well, his tome was quite enjoyable but it is a departure from the o...

Glad I Bought This Sanding Detailer

Glad I Bought This Sanding Detailer

198 days ago by Pie | 3 comments »

The Sanding Detailer is ideal for finishing those hard to reach areas. The abrasive belt can be indexed. The Sanding Detailer is spring loaded to put tension on the abrasive belt. After the abrasive belt is used up, simply compress the tool and replace the abrasive belt with a fresh one. They are color coded for easy identification of grit. So my wife and I walk into the local WoodCraft store for some scroll saw blades.Since I scrol saw and was looking for some small sanding files. Hea...

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

1008 days ago by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

These Dewalt Biscuits fit snugly into the slot compared to other brands I have used. In the dozens of tubes of Porter Cable biscuits I have used, they are always a little loose. That is fine for most work, but these Dewalt biscuits are better. Because the fit is so good, it actually aligns the edges for you. This is very helpful when doing glue-ups for tabletops. I realized how good the fit was when I mistakenly put biscuits in the slots on both sides of the joint. When I realized I had...

General 15” Wood Bandsaw

General 15” Wood Bandsaw

2365 days ago by toyguy | 3 comments »

Without a doubt, the most used/loved machine in my shop is my old reliable General 15 inch bandsaw. This particular saw is an older tool inherited from my Dad. It was manufactured in 1970 in DrummondVille, Que, Canada. Model number of this saw is the 490 and it is still manufactured today, a testimonial to its quality. This is an original General product; not to be confused with the now available General International products that are manufactured off shore. Like a lot of the tool manufactur...

Grizzly G1014Z 6x48 belt sander with 9" disc

Grizzly G1014Z 6x48 belt sander with 9" disc

1962 days ago by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 3 comments »

As I get more and more into the model making side of wood-working I find I need to do some quick sanding and holding the ROS while trying to sand a small piece was getting aggravating. So we stopped at the Grizzly showroom in Muncy, PA. They had both this sander and the smaller 4×36 belt sander. Needless to say the smaller one was out of stock and looked a little small and light for my needs, plus the G1014Z came with a stand. I was forced to wait 5 days before even unpacking it ...

Lathe mounted fluting jig

Lathe mounted fluting jig

374 days ago by hairy | 3 comments »

I saw this awhile back, thought it was cool, bought it and hung it up on the wall for a few months. I thought this is a good test. I read the instructions when it came and haven’t seen them since. I hope I didn’t toss them out with the trash. Here's a link to it. It is available without the router bits. It comes with clamps to fit a mini lathe. I made clamps to use it on this lathe. The jig will adjust in and out for thickness of workpiece by sliding in and out on th...

Ready to carve a dragon?

Ready to carve a dragon?

196 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 3 comments »

I want to start out by thanking Tom for writing the books he has written. This is one of two books from Tom Wolfe that I own, the other being Tom Wolfe carves Wizards, imagine that. Tom has written over 50 books, and from what I’ve read and seen in the two I have, I’ll be buying more in the future. If any of you out there know Mr. Wolfe personally, tell him I said thanks.Part of what got me interested in this book is that I love fantasy creatures. Dragons, Wizards, Elves, etc....
