Insulfoam Garage Door Insulation Kit

Insulfoam Garage Door Insulation Kit

02-09-2012 05:34 AM by David Grimes | 9 comments »

My three garage doors were not insulated. Never a problem until last year when I converted bay 3 into the Man Cave wood shop and started spending much time out here. I don’t even remember what the back porch looks like. My dogs miss me terribly. They bark at me before they remember me. I went to the BORG and the BBRG looking for garage door insulation whatever. They had some Owens Corning bag of flimsy, etc. No thanks. I called my garage door supplier/installer to see how much...

Mortise Pal Review:  Highly Recommended

Mortise Pal Review: Highly Recommended

01-24-2009 12:23 AM by newTim | 6 comments »

January 23rd, 2009Review: Mortise Palhttp://www.mortisepal.com/ I highly recommend this jig. It is well machined and works exactly as shown; a rare achievement in woodworking, I know. I purchased the original MP a few months back and quickly discovered it would only fit 2 1/4ā€ (?) maximum. Well they must have heard some feedback and they came out with Version 2.0 which will straddle 3ā€ stock and has a couple of other improvements. Things I look for in tools include: Is it safe? Is i...

Now, this is the way to cut veneer !

Now, this is the way to cut veneer !

05-21-2013 12:49 AM by shipwright | 21 comments »

I am rapidly becoming a fan of Tools for Working Wood and the Gramercy line of specialty tools. This review is about the French style veneer saw but if you look closely, you will see their superb holdfasts being used as well. When you pick up this saw you know immediately that it is like no other veneer saw you (or at least I) have ever held before. It’s teeth are coarse for a veneer saw and it is heavy .... and that’s why it works so well. The blade itself is thin and cuts wi...

Scissor Table

Scissor Table

12-28-2009 12:36 AM by ND2ELK | 24 comments »

This is a H-1485 U-Line standard Scissor Table. The table is 18 X 27 and has a 330 pound weight limit. They have bigger units that hold more weight. Because my shop is so small I had to figure out a way to store my sanders but be able to get them out when needed. When I saw this scissor table, I knew it would do the trick. I built the platforms out of 2 X 12’s for the legs and 3/4” fir plywood for the tops, all trimmed in 4/4 oak. I gave the platforms two coats of Watco Oil. I can...

Worth the Premium Price

Worth the Premium Price

12-22-2013 07:03 PM by Mark Davisson | 13 comments »

First, I’m sorry about the photo. Sandpaper is not extremely photogenic. I’m a fan of Allan Little’s “AskWoodMan” YouTube channel. He talked me into paying the premium price for this product a little over a year ago. I ordered 6 sheets (9X11) of 5 different grits (80, 100, 120, 150, 180 and 220) at just under $1 per sheet. I created a sanding station using 1/4 sheet of each grit. My intention for this station was to sand long strips of walnut and oak pict...

Move over Diablo, Irwin got something right for once

Move over Diablo, Irwin got something right for once

07-25-2012 02:39 PM by lumberjoe | 49 comments »

Yesterday I found myself in Lowes. Rumor was they were offloading all of their CMT stuff cheap. While browsing around I stumbled upon the Marples blades. Disclaimer I have a saw blade addiction. If I see something new or exciting, I have to buy it. It’s a problem and I need help! Also I am not a fan of Irwin at all. Their marathon blades are pure garbage, and the “classic” blades are a downgrade from whatever came on your saw – as hard to beleive as that is. I did some...

Great Oscillating Spindle Sander option

Great Oscillating Spindle Sander option

01-03-2010 11:22 PM by richgreer | 14 comments »

I wanted an oscillating spindle sander but I was not willing to give up any floor space to accommodate one. I considered some bench top options but I felt the work surface on most of them was too small. I found the ideal answer with the Porter-Cable PC121 sander and a special insert plate for my router table from Woodpecker. Now I can lift my router out of the router table and set the sander in. I then have the entire router table as a work surface for my sander and I am not taking ...

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

01-16-2010 05:26 AM by closetguy | 5 comments »

There are 100 different ways to build cabinets. Everyone has their own method that works well for them, and there is really no wrong way as long as they are square and sturdy. The goal is to be able to build them as quickly as possible, without compromising quality. Iā€™m in the middle of a large cabinet job and decided to take a break this afternoon to document this little bit set that I have found invaluable in making my cabinets. Sommerfield Tools has a lot of high quality router bits ...

Hey friends and neighborsI received my can of Charles Neils Blotch control almost a week ago and I have been waiting to give it a try due to my work schedule I decided to give it a go on some poplar knowing it’s one of the worst woods to blotch when stain is applied.I sanded this six quarter piece of poplar as I would preparing for staining for all woods I’m about to finish going through the grits up to 220 grit as the instructions suggest. I then applied a first coat of blotch c...
