They do a great job helping you with the plans.

I thought i would try out selling plans on http://www.sawtoothideas.com/ by submitting a simple plan. i got many emails from them helping me perfect the plan. I haven’t sold anything because the project itself wouldn’t be that popular, also they’re just starting out and need time to grow. If you want to sell plans for extra woodworking-cash, i think that this is a great way.

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

472 days ago by BigDawg | 15 comments »

I owned a series of Norton waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they didn’t perform as well as I would’ve liked. Plus you have to make sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which creates a wet mess. I took Bob Van Dyke’s sharpening class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in November. I had looked at the Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. After the class I bought a set of 1000 and...

Riser Block

Riser Block

2108 days ago by khop | 5 comments »

The riser block made for the Grizzly G0555 14” bandsaw also works on the older Jet 14” saw. I compared the cost and it was a no brainer. The Grizzly H3051 Extension kit does the job for only $59.00 . This kit comes complete including a new 105” blade. The blade isn’t the best, so maybe order a good one for resawing. I also equiped this saw with new tires from Rockler. Most reviews say they are the ones to get. The cost of the tires are most resonable at rockler (HUH). ...

Just got my router today and installed it on my grizzly 1023 router table extension. I really like it. I had to drill a hole as you can see so I can use the above table height adjustment tool, that was kinda scary if you look close I screwed up and drilled 2 holes hahah but its gonna work out I can use the extra hole that lines up with the gauge on the crank what I am planning on doing is filling the hole with something that will stand out and look good. , any suggestions would be greatly app...

Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

94 days ago by poopiekat | 20 comments »

After seeing some plane restorations by LJ ‘ToddJB’ back in December, I was glad to see someone asked him how he got such a terrific surface on the sides of his planes. His ‘workhorse’ as he referred to it, was a simple burnishing wheel! He claimed it would take a plane from rusty to shiny in one step! I had to have one of these, a hundred of my planes are in queue for restoration, and it’s taking me forever! So, I purchased a 3M burnishing wheel, the exact...

Teaching a class at Lee Valley

Teaching a class at Lee Valley

1110 days ago by JuniorJoiner | 13 comments »

I want to start by saying I enjoyed myself and I think the students left with better hand tool and dovetail skills than they started with. I had many handshakes and smiles at the end, so I hope everyone feels that they got their moneys worth of instruction. Now the critique. there was a critique form for the students, but not for me. I had offered to teach a different class, but told them I was flexible if they needed something covered off, which I am. I received an e-mail some weeks la...

an excellent design book for intermediate woodworkers

an excellent design book for intermediate woodworkers

1564 days ago by bent | 3 comments »

being that i’m a self taught woodworker, i love reading woodworking books. this one is to date, by far the best one i’ve come across. i picked it up at the local library, but i’m buying my own copy as soon as i take it back. there seem to be two types of books out there: step by step instructions/tutorials, and picture/gallery books. this book is the perfect balance for someone like myself that doesn’t build from plans and already has a grasp on the techniques invo...

You should see the other guy . . .

I recently bought a box of these nails to assemble a five-board bench. I drilled small pilot holes just to keep the nails headed in the right direction. Tremont recommends a pilot hole about the diameter of the nail halfway to the tip, but mine was much smaller and did the job just fine. The nails are a joy to drive, but they are soft—softer than round shank nails you might find at the hardware store. This makes it easy to clinch them, if you want, but also makes it easy to bend them...

Excellent tool for hollowers

Excellent tool for hollowers

1345 days ago by reggiek | 4 comments »

I bought this tool some time ago, based on a recommendation I received from a good friend that does gallery class production turnings, and have been running it through it’s paces. Now that I have it’s measure, it is time to do a write up. This tool is made in New Zealand – and definitely has excellent engineering and quality control. It arrived in first class condition well packaged and extremely well protected. The instruction book is a bit on the slim side…not...
