Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

11-10-2014 08:09 AM by sepeck | 5 comments »

Just as I was finishing ripping some lumber on my table saw, standing off the side slightly, the cut piece got bumped a bit as I hit the power switch. As the blade spun down the piece slowly rotated into the blade. I knew there was no chance of me moving in time. My t-shirt got ripped and I used quite a few paper towels to clean up the surface wound (not to mention OW!) on my stomach. My wife said she’d get me an apron for my birthday (and evidently REASONS!). Years ago I got to ...

Big, sturdy and functional

Big, sturdy and functional

12-10-2009 12:06 AM by ChunkyC | 10 comments »

Where Purchased: Amazon.comPrice: $29.95 From the ManufacturerThis convenient, mechanical push button switch features a large paddle “stop”, to allow you to quickly shut off power to your 120-Volt ac machinery. Placing the switch where you can use your hip or knee to bump it into the “off” position gives you the freedom to never take your hands off the work-Piece to turn off the machine. Surface mounts quickly and easily. Maximum 20-Amps. This is a nice big On/Of...

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

03-13-2012 06:37 AM by DHS | 6 comments »

I purchased a sanding block for the first time yesterday. I had taken my mother to lunch on Sunday afternoon and then to reward myself for this good deed I visited the local Rockler Woodworking store and browsed the discount racks. I bought some sanding disks, a quart of Titebond III, some space balls, and then just for the heck of it, I purchased a rubber sanding block for $3.99. What a wonderful device. I don’t know why I’ve never used one before. Perhaps it was my abrasive high-school...

What a Dream... I love this Plane!

What a Dream... I love this Plane!

02-29-2008 07:28 PM by Chris | 7 comments »

This plane is my first foray into the world of Lie-Nielsen. WOW! I am impressed; we get so very used to mediocre products that when we get our hands on products with this level of craftsmanship it simply blows you away. Don’t get me wrong, I love my old planes. However, I hated using the block planes I had picked up here and there. They were just too difficult to use accurately. This plane was ready to go straight out of the box. The sole is, as far as I can tell, perfectly flat and the ...

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

09-28-2012 07:04 PM by Tom Godfrey | 13 comments »

Want to review a book that I just purchased a few days ago. It’s called “Artisans & Money”, written by Joe Rollins. Some of you may remember me posting a review of his lathe cutting tools and as of today I have had 1146 views with 7 comments. Not sure if any of you ordered any of these tools but if you are starting out in wood turning or even if you have been turning for years I still feel this is one of the best investments you can make. Why? Great product at a lower price than other see...

Good Sander, but not Great

Good Sander, but not Great

06-05-2010 09:45 PM by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 9 comments »

I received this Milwaukee 1/4-sheet sander this week as a prize for completing surveys online – it was the only woodworking type tool offered. This replaces a B&D 1/4-sheet Palm Sander without oscillation. First impression is that it is packed well in a bright red plastic case with latches. Kit contains the sander, dust bag, three sheets of sandpaper (120, 180, 220), manual, and a paper punch. I had read reviews of this sander on Amazon and many users had complained that it is...

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

03-03-2014 05:24 AM by Lumberpunk | 3 comments »

I bought this kits a few months ago and didn’t get time to make the body until recently. As usual with Veritas products I found the packaging to be minimal, which I like. All the parts felt well made right away and the blade was already very flat and sharp, a few minutes on the worksharp brought it up to a nice mirror finish. The instructions are detailed and clear and have a good tool and materials list at the beginning as well as warning you when any operation is crucial to be p...

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...

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

09-30-2009 02:18 AM by dfarr | 13 comments »

I’ve always struggled with the cheap blade adjustment cranks (pictured right) on my 70s vintage table saw. I found these cast iron handwheels (H3189 – Cast Iron Handwheel – 6”) and chromed handles (H3205 – 4” x 3/8”-16) on the Grizzly web site. The handwheels were only $8.50 and the handles were $2.95. This was a great deal compared to other places I’ve looked at similar handwheels. The wheels come with a small center hole that I had to bore ou...

Acurate, Fast and Easy.

10-12-2012 04:34 PM by philphoto | 6 comments »

I have needed a way to set up my router fence and router bits in relationship to the fence. It seemed like the reversible glue joint bit, or lock miter bit were such great promise, only to have so much time wasted trying to hit the seemingly impossible perfect alignment of the joint parts. I had more success with the reversible glue joint bits, but still I would end up sanding to get it “right” and not really happy with the end result. Then I read a “Fine WoodworkingR...
