Thomas J MacDonald DVD Series Project 1 - The Toolbox

01-08-2010 05:21 AM by Karson | 8 comments »

I’d like to review a 2 DVD set that was created by Major League Woodworking by Thomas MacDonald. Tommy is a member of LumberJocks. He also has his own Web Site majorleaguewoodworking.com On the web he has forums where you can post questions and also your projects that you’ve created at mlwwoodworking.com/forum This DVD is making an item called “The Toolbox” Project 1. I’m assuming that this is going to be a series of woodworking projects all created by Tommy. In his easy going style you...

Shop Fox D3118 Router Inlay Kit

Shop Fox D3118 Router Inlay Kit

”Cut perfect inlays with this Inlay Kit and your shop-made template. Simply slide on the bushing to rout the cutout and then remove the bushing to cut the perfectly matched inlay. Includes a 1/8” solid carbide spiral cutter and alignment pin. Fits Porter Cable® routers and other routers with template guide adapters.”Everything was there and fit my new Trend T4 just fine although there were two things that bothered me. #1 – the alignment pin is 8mm! (not 1/4”),...

A note for those just getting started ... Don't do it!

A note for those just getting started ... Don't do it!

01-20-2008 04:31 PM by RayW | 20 comments »

I learned basic woodworking from an uncle many years ago while helping him remodel his him. I was an enjoyable time for me I loved the smell of the wood shop and was constantly learning. My uncle was a cabinet and furniture maker, with a long waiting list, in his spare time so he had all the equipment you can dream of. Well, it’s 20 years later now and I’m working a desk job in IT and need a hobby that is not at a computer and I remembered the smell of the fresh cut wood. So in...

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

03-01-2013 12:46 AM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is the file holder from Veritas for card scrapers. Works great for putting a new edge on card scrapers after the burr is worn out. Takes only a couple of seconds to file the edge and get it ready to burnish or you can leave it as is after filing for heavy (as heavy as you can get with a card scraper anyway) material removal. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a good jig for their card scrapers.

A tape measure I didn't realize I needed.

A tape measure I didn't realize I needed.

I was at Menards looking for a smaller tape measure (I have a Kobalt 30’ and a Craftsman 30’). For the vast majority of the time, I only need a 12’ tape like the chrome Stanley version. Well, it’s surprisingly hard to find. My son pointed out the Fastcap, and I thought it too gimmicky, with the built-in writing area and pencil sharpener. But then I pulled out the tape and was floored. A flat tape measure! Genius! And for less than $5, it was worth taking a cha...

Kreg Pocket hole jig Jr.

Kreg Pocket hole jig Jr.

12-26-2012 01:58 PM by AJswoodshop | 15 comments »

I’ve been using this Kreg jig Jr. for over a year now, and it’s well worth the money. It works great and I’m very happy with it. Only a few issues but the price is great! Positives--Includes drill bit, drill bit stop, a driver bit for square head screws, square head screws, plugs, the manual, the case, and the jig. All of these things work great.-It’s small size can fit in tight areas. Negatives--It’s hard to keep the jig from sliding around, you have to cl...

It sucks, in a good way.

It sucks, in a good way.

03-29-2016 02:09 AM by Matt | 10 comments »

So I purchased this from a local woodcraft @ $799 (on sale till the end of March) and it was forklift loaded in the bed of my truck. It was a fairly small pallet and my wife and I were able to unload it to the garage with little trouble. (She didn’t complain too much.) I assembled it in about an hour, casually taking my time and it was pretty easy. All the tools are included to assemble, however it’s faster and easier to use real sockets/wrenches. I was able to assemble it ...

Best sander I have ever used

Best sander I have ever used

10-28-2013 07:36 PM by lumberjoe | 9 comments »

This is truly a 5 star sander (unfortunately with a 5 star price to boot). I’ve always been an ROS guy but never able to get a mirror smooth finish without some hand touch-up in certain areas. This sander delivers! The Good Overall Construction This sander is well built. It’s heavy, yet ergonomically pleasing. The front handle comes off if need be. It is solid, quiet, and vibration free. It comes with a dust port fitting, or a dust collection tube with a filter inside (that ...

Sabel Block Roller

Sabel Block Roller

05-28-2012 04:44 AM by vipond33 | 10 comments »

If you ever have occasion to use masking/packing tape as a glue up clamp technique on miters or otherwise, or if you do work with veneer tape from time to time, then you just might like to have this tool in your box. Plastic laminates and general veneering are other regular uses for this roller. This is a bit of a luxury item at first glance, for how much of that type of work do most of us do? The payoff for anyone is in the quality of your work should you use it. Given a quality t...

I just received my Grizzly $140 router table and its all I could ask for after having tried to make my own router table and ending up with a bowed/warped tabletop with no fence. The black powder coated lets and braces were stuck to the paper inserts meant to keep the pieces apart, but I think that is a minor complaint given the value of the overall package. Once put together, I now have a fully functional router table with fence and insert plate. Assembly was very easy. Although it lo...
