The September 2008 special issue of Wood magazine, titled “Best-Ever Router Tips, Tricks and Jigs” is an A-to-Z guide to using routers more effectively.

For all woodworkers, there are 34 jigs and several skill-building helps that solve some of the problems of routing, such as burnouts, chip prevention on corners. Important safety tips are also included. The magazine gives the skinny on selecting the rig...

Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

771 days ago by Daris | 1 comment »

I love all things BIRD.  There, I said it.  I like birds, birdhouses, bird feeders, bird baths, bird stores, and most of all I enjoy making some of these things.  Surprisingly though, I’ve never bought a project book of just bird houses(although many of the books I have include some plans).  I picked up the book Easy to Build Birdhouses - A Natural Approach: Must Know Info to Attract and Keep the Birds You Want (Popular Woodworking) at Amazon for a really reasonable price.  I have thoro...

Mobile storage for less

Mobile storage for less

65 days ago by paxorion | 1 comment »

The DeWalt TSTAK is the yellow and black competitor to the Festool/Tanos Systainer and Bosch/Sortimo L-Boxx. There doesn’t seem to be much of a retail presence at the moment (although Woodcraft seems to have begun carrying them, and highlighted them as a 2014 Fathers Day gift idea). So after a lot of online research, I procured a few of these units (the long-handle I, flat top II, and 2 drawer IV) because I found them to be on average, 30-50% less per unit than it’s competitors....

Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

272 days ago by JoelB | 7 comments »

Just bought this to save my back when a client spec’d a project that required 20 sheets of 3/4” MDF. The Troll is an awesome back saver that makes it very easy to move sheet goods around the shop. My storage is roughly 75 feet away from my tablesaw so I needed a simple and inexpensive way to move the 20 sheets around with a minimum of lifting. Basically, to use, you lay the Troll against the sheet at about midpoint. Then you lift/tilt the panel until the lip on the bottom of ...

Business review for acmetools.com! Amazing, customer service is outstanding!

222 days ago by Micahm | 11 comments »

I am writing this review to tell my experiences with acmetools.com. I had many inquiries about tools I was purchasing that were going to be freight items. They answered every question I had about the tools, every question about the freight and more.They were very polite, helpful, and answered questions completely. Oh and the freight shipping was free and since out of state no tax!! I was also ordering a anvil, the manufacturer was back ordering the one I had purchased. I was uneasy about it t...

Most useful literature in my shop, easily.

Most useful literature in my shop, easily.

2345 days ago by USCJeff | 9 comments »

While this is not a tool, this book has earned its spot as one of my most useful assets in my shop. After posting numerous threads that requested help from the more experienced Jocks, I was told that Flexner’s book was the “Bible” of finishing. While I laughed at that, it turned out to be the case. In the last several months since the purchase, I have yet to have a finishing question that wasn’t explained in detail within the pages. My favorite feature is the indiv...

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

1086 days ago by David Grimes | 8 comments »

Like most of us, I get into different stuff that requires a bit more than soap and water to get off my hands and forearms. For as long as I can remember I’ve used the gojo, orange cleaner with pumice, mineral spirits, sometimes acetone, even gasoline to get the various stains, finishes and glues off. A couple of weeks ago, I was in the local Sherwin Williams paint store and saw this product for $3.49. I asked the manager if it was good stuff. He laughed and said that he couldnR...

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

475 days ago by JuanGatico | 5 comments »

Hi LJs! Since I live in Colombia it’s rather difficult and expensive purchasing books, DVDs and tools in general to be shipped this part of the continent. For that reason I tried some digital downloads, specifically Christopher Schwarz’ video Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench Planes and Jim Tolpin’s The New Traditional Woodworker. Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench PlanesAfter waiting nearly an hour I started watching the video and what...

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

403 days ago by Nick_R | 4 comments »

*UPDATE* After using these tools for a few months and turning lots of stuff I have found a reason to complain.. But really these are great tools and seem to live up to marketing however the edges do not last as long as you might think, They do not stay super sharp and then one day become dull. It is an over time degradation so you reach a point where the tool is not dull but not really sharp either… You have to debate on whether to turn the blade and what happens is you don’t t...
