The Texas Furniture Maker's Show in Kerrville, TX Rocks!

12-01-2009 08:12 PM by Paul | 8 comments »

There’s only a few days left (ends Dec. 5th). But, if there’s any Texas Lumberjocks close enough to Kerrville for a day trip, it’s well worth your time. Some awesome work on display! I went yesterday and it has inspired me to continue to strive to raise the level of my work. You can see winner pics on line if you Google the show.

Stots DoveTail TemplateMaster

Stots DoveTail TemplateMaster

02-14-2008 10:02 PM by leonmcd | 2 comments »

The Stots DoveTail TemplateMaster is a template that you use to make a template to cut dovetails. The main things going for it are price ( $40) and essentially unlimited width capability. I used it to make dovetails for a blanket chest ( 18” deep). It also allows you to make a template you can use on a router table. I find this handy. Also, once you have a template you can reuse it as much as you want ( nothing to set up ). On the down side. It only does thru dovetails and variable spac...

Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

12-10-2016 03:15 PM by becikeja | 14 comments »

I have a small hobby shop and like to have my tools on mobile bases. The Shop Fox Mobile base seemed well made and strong. Assembly was simple enough, and it was easy to move into place and with a simple turn of the stabilizing screws quickly became immobilized when the bandsaw was in use. I was very happy with the product. A couple of weeks ago I took on the task of cleaning the shop. Behind the Bandsaw I found a chunk of rubber. I could not figure out where it came from. Then I be...

Better drill than I expected, serviceable impact driver, so-so radio

Better drill than I expected, serviceable impact driver, so-so radio

08-29-2014 11:47 PM by Dan Lyke | 8 comments »

This is not a brand I would have ever expected to have in my shop, but… From my Twitter stream, on April 30th 2014 I got a follow from @RIDGIDPower, and said I’d be an unlikely customer. Surprising me, they engaged! We sent email back and forth, their rep offered to send me a battery powered tool combo kit with a drill, impact driver, and radio. I actually declined, on the basis that I didn’t need another set of chargers and batteries in my shop, but by that point the box wa...

This is a short pictorial on setting up the Small Plow to cut T&Gs. This is a new-to-me plane, and I took a few pics as I was working out the kinks and having a little play. I hope this helps some of you. Link: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ToolReviews/AccessoryBladesfortheVeritasSmallPlow.html Regards from Perth Derek

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

03-27-2009 04:08 AM by handi | 6 comments »

If you are used to using FastCaps to cover screws on your cabinets, at some point you have needed some in a special color or wood species. Now you can make your own! FastCap is now offering their Custom Color Punch Kit. The kit includes a heavy duty hole punch, double sided tape, and their Flushmount drill bit. Start by applying the tape to the back of the material you want to use as your cap. With a firm grip on the punch, you can make as many caps as needed, punching through the veneer. ...

I purchased arbortech’s contour Random orbit sander. I build a lot of maloof style furniture and this little baby is a life and time saver. If you watch the YouTube video made by arbortech. There is no BS. It works as advertised. The rubber head can be replaced if needed (15-20 dollars). It is made well and with a little care will out last me. It uses sticky back paper which you can order from arbortech or do like me buy 5 or 6 inch discs and with a sharp pair of scissors make your...

Hitachi Compressor - Nice for the Price

Hitachi Compressor - Nice for the Price

07-27-2009 09:50 PM by reggiek | 5 comments »

I just replaced my old pancake compressor ( A Porter Cable – a few gasps and then gave up the ghost – after about 9 years of very hard service) with this model from Hitachi. It was very reasonably priced even if not on sale!...and has more power and more capacity then my old model. So far it works great!....and I am very happy with the extra capacity. I use the mini compressor’s to blow off tools, work areas, projects and to run finish nailers, staplers, framing nailer...

Wow, what a way to join wood!

Wow, what a way to join wood!

02-29-2008 05:03 PM by Hawgnutz | 17 comments »

This is a fantastic way to join wood. It works well with little instruction. This method al,ost will eliminate the need for clamps, as the screw pulls the two pieces of wood togerther for drying! There are FEW downsides. One is the cost of the jig, but with the time saved over biscuits or dowels, that is a moot point! Another is that the directions state that the drill should spin at least 2000 RPMs to protect the bit. This elimininates many cordless drills, even though their demonstr...

initial impression very good

I am making the transition to more handwork and want to master (or come close to it) hand cut dovetails. Since I recently fell in love with my Japanese Ryoba that’s been collecting dust for years (here’s a great review on it http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/129 ), I unilaterally decided to turn Japanese … I mean pull it … the saw that is… errr, nevermind. Lee Valley has this saw for a lower price than replacement blades on their other saws, I thought it looked l...
