I like I-Box

I like I-Box

01-03-2014 06:46 PM by Kerry Drake | 15 comments »

Got the I-Box for Christmas and finished setting it up yesterday. The pictures show my very first test pieces using a 3/8 inch dado stack. Once you understand what’s going on with the jig, it is very easy to use and it gave me near perfect results on my very first test. Set up takes about 15 minutes out of the box, but it comes with a very good set of instructions and a DVD showing the entire process from beginning to end. For me, now, the hardest part about making really good bo...

Excellent budget blade!

Excellent budget blade!

10-05-2009 02:33 PM by Mike Gager | 28 comments »

I just recently bought this blade after reading some of the reviews on the home depot website. I am very satisfied with it and think its an excellent choice for someone on a budget wanting a nice cutting blade. I havent used any of the high end blades such as the forrest woodworker2 but i would be mighty surprised if they cut that much better then this blade does. I tried it on red oak, pine, douglas fir, MDF, and particle board melamine and it left a super smooth cut in all of them with no t...

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

03-25-2015 10:40 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

I don’t have a lot of mileage on this bit but since they impressed me I put this review out for those who are currently looking for a router bit that they might need for a one time job and not have to pay nearly as much as for a standard name brand one. I will update this review over time if I begin to see any deviation from my initial thoughts. I’d seen these reviewed here before. Usually the reviews are mixed. I needed to make some small fluted moldings for a hutch. I didn...

Bait and switch sales tactics?

Bait and switch sales tactics?

06-24-2012 07:15 PM by TroutStalker | 14 comments »

Shopclass on Demand is a webiste that contains a number of woodowrking videos. I signed up in March during a promotion that promised 1/2 price access for life. That is I paid $25 for six months access and would be allowed to renew for the same price for life. Seemed like a good deal at the time. I was initially happy with the deal. They had seeded the site with a number of good videos that they typically sell as DVDs for $25 or so. Since then they have added 2-3 more videos each week....

A goof proof sharpening system

A goof proof sharpening system

02-09-2014 05:54 PM by CharlesA | 9 comments »

I will admit at the beginning that I have never used the scary sharp, the Paul Sellers method, Tormek, or other sharpening systems. A year ago I got my first good set of chisels and started with some vintage Stanley planes. I stopped by my local Woodcraft and asked what they recommended for sharpening, and I picked up this Veritas Mk II and some Japanese water stones. Good: You don’t have to know a lot. There are lots of possible settings for every kind of chisel and plane. It...

The Luthier's Best Friend can help all handymen/women and woodworkers too!

I suggested some time ago that Lee Valley carry luthier’s binding tape, as it has usefulness for many of us on a day to day basis. After some searching they were able to track down a supplier and have offered it for sale on their store. Here’s an example of I use it in the guitar shop: This tape is quite simply indispensable for any woodworker and likely most home’s toolbox. The tape is strong enough to wrap around a joint and not break, while having some elasticit...

Rikon Mortiser with XY Table

Rikon Mortiser with XY Table

01-01-2015 06:07 PM by panofish | 11 comments »

I really wanted to give it 4 stars, but the inconsistency of the chuck and the weak motor left me wishing for more.If I had $1200 to burn … I’d prefer the large standing Powermatic mortiser, but unfortunately I have to make due with this $300 mortiser from Rikon. The table and clamping mechanism are great however. I made a video review on youtube… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3ta3OTK5Wg

Alone in the Wilderness

Alone in the Wilderness

If not for the viewing of this very interesting documentary woodworking may have never gotten into my blood as strong as it has. This documentary is many things in one, part nature hike, part meditation, part woodworking…..and in all parts a wonderful journey of a man that decided to live his life his own way. Richard Louis “Dick” Proenneke (born May 4, 1916 – April 20, 2003) was a retired highly skilled mechanic living in Alaska that took his modest nest egg and decided ...
