Great, and inexpensive

Great, and inexpensive

06-28-2014 06:04 PM by Goodsh | 11 comments »

Bought this saw for $30 about 6 months ago. It is great. Cuts super fast in all types of wood often without tear out and is very easy to use. I use it for both crosscuts and rip cuts and it produces fine results in both. The blade is solid and tight in the handle. The handle is a little cheap – it’s basically just a dowel but for $30 bucks I wouldn’t expect much more. This saw is great. To be honest I much prefer this over the Veritas rip carcass saw I got for more than doub...

Cut calculator for ipad

Cut calculator for ipad

01-20-2014 04:41 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

I’ve been using this app on my ipad for a few weeks now so I guess I can review it. In a nutshell, it works as advertised. It’s pretty simple and fairly straightforward to use. You enter the X/Y dimensions for each piece of wood in your project, the dimensions of the wood you will cut from, and your saw kerf width. It lays out your pieces to be cut over the stock so you can visually estimate your materials. You have limited controls available, you can lay out the grain direction v...

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

12-16-2014 11:46 PM by Greg..the Cajun Wood Artist | 15 comments »

I have a good number of router bits for different purposes that I have accumulated over the years…some good and some not so good. I have been looking at this spiral combo bit from Whiteside for a while…hoping it would go on sale…but it never seemed to…so and finally decided to buy it. I have given it a good workout before writing this review because it is not my everyday bit and isn’t cheap at $149. I’ve used it in my router table and also with a handhe...

Fine Woodworking "Building Furniture" Winter/Spring 2012

Fine Woodworking "Building Furniture" Winter/Spring 2012

01-24-2012 06:45 AM by Zulu55 | 15 comments »

Hey guys, I am brand new here so I am not sure if I posted this in the right spot but I figured because there was an ability to review a magazine that this may suffice. I don’t have much to say about it except that I just picked it up off a store shelf today and it is absolutely fantastic! It goes over how to make many different styles of bookcases, tables, chairs, cabinets, chests, bureaus, beds and sideboards. It assist with creating your own design by providing assistance with...

I have only done a little re-sawing but this bade cut 6” thick maple like butter. The finish was good but I am working to get it better. It went through the maple as fast as I could feed it.

This hammer could be better, but with a little work it'll be fine.

10-1/2 oz Warrington Pattern Hammer from Lee Valley—————————————————————————- My hammer collection has historically been limited to 20oz claw hammer and a couple of ball peens. My wife bought the claw hammer for my birthday early on in our marriage. The message was clear, “build me a house or break your thumbs trying”. Well, th...

A+ Router

A+ Router

07-02-2008 07:48 PM by Woodshopfreak | 8 comments »

This router is great, everything about it is just awesome. I use it in my router table for the most part and this thing is dead on accurate and is very fun to use. The 2 horsepower motor is plenty powerful to cut through even the hardest woods and it has many features that you can’t find on other routers or features that are on very high priced routers. I prefer using this router to the Porter Cable routers we used at school. The hand grips on Porter Cables are more like griping knobs t...

NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

12-10-2013 09:45 PM by jeffk726 | 22 comments »

After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing. After receiving my jointer 1 week after purchase, I was excited to get it up and running. First came the uncrating. The packaging was adequate as th...

Not recommended for shellac

Not recommended for shellac

10-11-2012 08:08 AM by Purrmaster | 31 comments »

I got this stuff after I saw that the finishing test counter at Rockler had a bottle of this. I was using shellac for the first time so I got this denatured alcohol instead of the “regular” denatured alcohol. I was hoping it might have a bit less toxicity. After sticking my shellac flakes in (2 oz of shellac) and measuring out 6 ounces of alcohol I let the jar sit overnight. And basically nothing happened. So I shake and stir and it makes no difference. I even put the jar ...

Formby's not so Tung Oil Finish

Formby's not so Tung Oil Finish

12-22-2014 05:40 AM by Thomas berkey | 14 comments »

I have used Formby’s Tung Oil Finish for years since it is readily available at the local home improvement store and is easy to use. They sell this product as a “mix of tung oil and other fine penetrating oils” and appears to be nothing other than a wiping varnish with maybe a tad bit of oil in it with tons of thinner. The can says You wipe it on with a rag and buff it into the wood and do this maybe three times to get a nice close to the wood finish that has a good amoun...
