Woodwork joints

Woodwork joints

An excellent source and reference for hand joinery and it’s original uses. The book is public domain, so it’s free and although it is written in older style English and the descriptions and instructions are very brief, if you are into hand joinery or just looking for a joint that really stands out as unique, this is a really good book to use.

Worth Every Penny

Worth Every Penny

12-31-2008 01:27 AM by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

I gotta have my music. In fact, for some reason I concentrate better when I have music going than when I don’t. However, with the scream of power tools, it can get lost. Not only that, but something has to help pass the time when sanding! Well, the Work Tune does the job just fine. I picked this one up for $50 from Lowe’s with some Christmas money, and I’m thrilled with it. First the hearing protection: It works great. I can hear the scream of the machines, but n...

A Paean to an American Classic

A Paean to an American Classic

04-16-2013 05:17 AM by vipond33 | 21 comments »

Good everyday tools make everything better. . I have an abundance of Jorgensen 3700 clamps on hand, today I bought some more. I’ve been happily using these same American clamps for decades and I’ve really no idea whether the people involved are being paid well or not, but to this day the quality remains outstanding.. . It does seem there are companies that make a cheaper, poorer copy of this design but I would say to them and you – why bother? Many of my clamps h...

Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

11-12-2013 01:47 AM by CL810 | 7 comments »

I purchased this bit from Traditional Woodworker to bore holdfast holes in my workbench. It is by far one of the best drill bits I’ve used. I was drilling holes in a 4.75” thick cherry using my drill press at 500 rpm. The bit pulled itself through the board effortlessly and the holes are perfectly smooth. Same results in maple.

Rockler Coping Sled

Rockler Coping Sled

09-27-2013 05:21 AM by Albe | 6 comments »

I have never wrote a tool review but after using Rockler’s Coping Sled and not seeing any other reviews I figured I’d try my luck. I actually bought the copping sled several years ago when I got frustrated when using a rail and stile bit set to do the profile on the end grain. No matter how hard I tried bit seemed to grab and it threw it off track. I again realized how much of a lifesaver it is when using it again doing the same operation. Although the copping sled seems a little steep ...

Great mid range dust collecter.

Great mid range dust collecter.

06-01-2010 06:55 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 7 comments »

I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would sugges...

Flattened my water stones

Flattened my water stones

02-08-2014 10:52 PM by CharlesA | 11 comments »

I got into more serious sharpening a year ago, but didn’t really know that much. When recently sharpening my chisels, I realized that I had messed up last time, and I needed to re grind 5 of my chisels back to the original 25 degree bevel. My 250 coarse stone was not particularly flat when I finished. I knew I needed to flatten my stones since I use a Veritas Mk II and not the Paul Sellers method. I checked around and it seemed like the two prevailing options aware this norton stone and...

CHARLES NEILS IT'S ALL ABOUT COLOR  DVDs

CHARLES NEILS IT'S ALL ABOUT COLOR DVDs

06-02-2010 12:18 AM by a1Jim | 23 comments »

My long awaited DVD set, Charles Neil’s,” It’s All About The Color”, that I ordered a while back, came today. I’m suppose to be in the shop right now, but thought I would watch just one of the 6 DVDs . It didnt work out that way… I’m watching #3 right now. What’s it about? It covers waterbase finishes and how to get the color you want from each one. One DVD for 6 of the main woods: cherry,oaks,maples,walnut,poplar and mahogany. It’s great...

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

09-29-2013 06:35 AM by Purrmaster | 7 comments »

Let’s get a couple of things out of the way first: Yes, I start sanding with 40 grit. Yes, this is insane. I find myself often having to sand out screwups on my projects and the rougher the sanding grit the faster I can sand it out. I got these discs at Lowe’s. I normally got the Shop Smith 40 grit discs but they were out of them this time. So I bought a 50 pack. So far I’ve gone at least dozen of them over a period of several months, on different woods. Ther...
