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...

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

04-10-2015 10:41 PM by Redoak90 | 3 comments »

I purchased the Gramercy tools sash saw kit a few weeks back. The kit comes with a saw plate with a brass back and 2 pairs of saw nut and bolt in brass. The saw was packaged in an anti-rust paper with bubble wrap. Nothing was damaged when it arrived and it looked flawless. No scratches, dings, or dents present. The saw is 14” long has 13 ppi and a 0.02” saw plate. I bought the kit because the only saw I had was a Veritas dovetail saw and wanted a larger saw to cut larger pie...

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...

Excellent grinder accessory

Excellent grinder accessory

11-07-2012 09:14 PM by Kreegan | 4 comments »

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

To Infinity and Beyond

To Infinity and Beyond

The 50T Infinity Combomax is the best 50 tooth combination blade I’ve tried to date. This is an extraordinarily well made blade that uses a unique ATB/R configuration that features a chamfered raker instead of the traditional flat top raker. It has very low tearout for this class of blade, and is particularly good in sheetgoods, while maintaining good ripping abilities due to it’s 12° hook. Any blade that’s designed to do multiple tasks has some inherent compromise relati...

It's a Drill Press

It's a Drill Press

02-29-2008 07:44 PM by Chris | 0 comments »

I was in need of a drill press and purchased this drill press on clearance. It performs as advertised; however there a couple of areas that are lacking. The Good:1) Spindle run out is almost non-existent2) The speeds are easy to change3) It seems to have plenty of torque for my needs The Bad:1) Even when “locked down” the table can wander laterally2) The table height adjustment has a lot bit of play3) Worst of all: The table deflects significantly even with moderate downward...

The Workbench Design Book

The Workbench Design Book

The Workbench Design BookBy: Christopher Schwartz ISBN-10: 1558708405 ISBN-13: 978-1558708402 This book is really a landmark in workbench books for me. The workbench design book is a book that takes you on a tour in workbenches; we get a little historical insight, some geographical insight and the chance to see what workbenches some of the top guides of the trade are using. My personal favorite are with no doubt the 21st-century Workbench, this bench is so rock solid and well tho...

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

01-30-2011 01:53 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

I am always on the lookout for quality products at a low price. Since I started turning I have been looking for power sanding accessories that are a better value than what is available through Woodcraft. After quite a bit of searching and comparing I finally decided to give 2Sand.com a shot. After my 1st test drive of their Blue Micron Bowl Sanding Discs I am really impressed! Price When comparing price to Woodcraft there is not comparison. A 5 disc pack Hook & Loop discs from Woodc...

The Freud LU87R010 is a 10” 24 tooth thin kerf (TK) ripping blade that features a red “Permashield” coating for reduced friction and corrosion resistance, laser cut anti-vibration/anti-noise expansion slots, flat top ground teeth (FTG) for efficient material removal, and an aggressive 20 degree hook angle for a fast feed rate.

Originally happy with purchase; unit died after 18 months.

I live in humid western Oregon, and my shop has been pretty sealed off for most of the winter. I also obtained a load of green western red cedar at the start of winter which is stickered for drying. These two facts together led me to feel that a dehumidifier might be a good investment for my shop. After researching reviews on the different models out there, I decided on the rectangular 45 pint model by Soleusair. I chose this one because of a number of features: Timer mode, to shut i...
