Veritas Brass Bench Dogs

Veritas Brass Bench Dogs

02-07-2013 02:42 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

I have only used these dogs for a couple of days and so far I am very impressed. I was one of those that said, bahhha I don’t need to spend $30 bucks on something I can make out of wood. But, I wanted to add some bling to my bench and reward myself for accomplishing my bench build. What sold me was going to Highland Woodworking, opening a box and inspecting a pair of these dogs and feeling the gripping face. There is a texture there that is not entirely apparent by looking at them. Besi...

Ready to carve a dragon?

Ready to carve a dragon?

02-06-2014 01:16 AM 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....

Ever wish you could spray a finish without the complexitys of compressors hoses and the clumsy time it takes to clean out the gun after?Ever wish you didnt have to go through the effort of the already mentioned set up just to spray something like a jewelry box or small items? Well this lacquer is for you!In a convenient spray can just shake it up and your good to go.You can even turn the tip of the nozzle to change the spray from horizontal to vertical.It sprays nice and even however it does...

Nail Puller gets great reviews but I couldn't make it live up to expectations

Nail Puller gets great reviews but I couldn't make it live up to expectations

11-04-2010 01:22 AM by Elizabeth | 11 comments »

I recently got a bunch of reclaimed wood which used to be a boat frame. At either end of most pieces are lots of nails, and I mean LOTS – about 20-30 in each piece. I wanted to try to reclaim all the wood so I looked around for a way to get these nails out, and found many good reviews of the Crescent 56 Nail Puller on Amazon. Nearly all the reviews said that this was the tool to get if you have to pull lots of nails, and described its use. It seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it item ...

Veritas Router Plane

Veritas Router Plane

03-02-2011 12:41 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 13 comments »

My wife recently surprised me with a Veritas Router Plane and Router Plane Fence. She knows that I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to new tools. I have always wanted a router plane but only had one occasion to even use one, it was a class that Marc Spagnuolo (The Wood Whisperer) was giving at the Highland Hardware Store here in Atlanta. I loved the tool and immediately thought of a thousand used for it but only added it to my wish list. My wife always keeps a few tool mag...

Respectable starter set

Respectable starter set

07-20-2011 04:27 AM by lysdexic | 15 comments »

Purchased this set about a year ago to get me started woodworking. The set is currently on clearance for $76 at Woodcraft. I realize that these are not a set of Lie Nielsens, Ashley Iles, or vintage 750’s. Therefore, my expectations were guarded. They lived up to my expectations but they certainly did NOT exceed them. Now, I do not have any significant experience with any other chisels except a couple a Stanley’s that I got from Lowe’s in the distant past. They come on...

Ready to carve a wizard?

Ready to carve a wizard?

This is one of the two books by Tom Wolfe that I own. Please read my other review here regarding Tom's Dragon book. I want to start out by thanking Tom for writing the books he has written. If any of you out there know Mr. Wolfe personally, tell him I said thanks. The back cover of this book sums up why I got this book, and why it was written. It reads, “Among the most popular of Tom Wolfe’s carving books is Tom Wolfe Carves Dragons. From the day it came off the presses ...

Hi fellow LJ’S I know this site is about woodworking. Once in awhile even a woodworker needs to drill a hole in metal. In my case I’m building a mobile base for my table saw. I did not want to use my wood bits so I found this set on e-bay for around 40 bucks free shipping too. They are handy to have on hand when you need a straight round hole in thin metal (table saw stand). The nice case was a bonus and is durable too. Thanks Jim K. I have other Irwin products in use and...
