Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

1677 days ago 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. I’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 ...

CHARLES NEIL BLOTCH CONTROL

1561 days ago by a1Jim | 47 comments »

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...

Worth the money...

Worth the money...

402 days ago by jusfine | 12 comments »

I did see an excellent review on this jig after posting mine, but here are my thoughts anyway… I purchased the I-Box about 4 months ago after seeing a positive comment on LJs and noticing it on sale at a local tool vendor, but did not take it out of the box as I didn’t have an immediate need for box joints – was in the middle of my bench build. I was recently asked to build a custom oak makeup desk with drawers for a friend, and thought maybe I would try out the jig fo...

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

398 days ago by CypressAndPine | 6 comments »

I just received my set of Naniwa Super Stones. I got a 1000, 3000, & 8000 grit stone. I also got the Norton flattening stone. The stones were very flat and ready to use out the box. They come mounted in a cheap plastic base, but it seems sufficient. The supposed advantage of the superstones is that they don’t need to pre-soak. You just add water and sharpen. I purchased them from Sharpening Supplies online. I paid about $140 for the set. I immediately sharpened my #4 bailey p...

 Flexible and accurate dowel work.

Flexible and accurate dowel work.

547 days ago by vipond33 | 10 comments »

I’m quite enamored of dowels as joinery, especially in cabinet construction. Fast, accurate and plenty strong enough if used with good technique, tooling and materials, they also allow me flexibility in appearance of the finished case without too much fuss. However, I do not own a doweling jig. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have a Dowel Max, but with all its accessories to be more costly than the price of a used motorcycle, well, no thanks. Besides, all doweling jigs ar...

Nuvo Screws - Nuvo kid on the block

Nuvo Screws - Nuvo kid on the block

340 days ago by vipond33 | 13 comments »

Cognoscenti in the woodworking world know that the finest screw available till now is the Robertson square drive. Can’t be beat. Its finest current expression is the Quadrex type- - with its combination Philips/Robertson drive, a cut point self drilling feature and with countersinking nibs under the flat head. A modern deep root design. Till now. New to our shop is the Nuvo screw, a much improved variation on the Canadian designed Robertson. It has three surpr...

Help Making Perfect Inlays

Help Making Perfect Inlays

1102 days ago by RogerBean | 19 comments »

First thing I noticed when I opened the box, was that this is a quality tool. Machined and anodized aluminum, with the A2 corner chisel itself cleverly held in place with several small magnets. I first had the opportunity to use the prototype for this jig at Andrew’s workshop in Shropshire, England. I was there to learn, and when we got to the topic of inlay, Andrew produced a small flute case with a routed inlay groove pre-cut to use as a demo. He produced the prototype jig and said “...

Super Dust Deputy Add on for 4" DC systems

Super Dust Deputy Add on for 4" DC systems

836 days ago by TechRedneck | 12 comments »

While researching this product, I noticed that there was not a review on LJ’s for this specific model of cyclone. I have a smaller ClearVue Mini and absolutely love it, however there were few choices on the market for cyclones specifically made for the majority of small DC systems out there in the 1-2 HP range. I think that Oneida has something here for that niche market. In fact, I am surprised yet pleased that they made one of these available because it can directly compete with ...
