Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD  By Steve Latta

Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD By Steve Latta

05-18-2014 04:14 AM by sandhill | 8 comments »

I was really not going to buy the Tool kit but when it included the DVD by Steve Latta who actually was the one responsible for the development design with lie-Nielsen I decided to pull the trigger and invest in the kit. For me the DVD was worth the entire cost of the kit and the tools were the added bonus Steve spoke slow enough to leave time to grasp the topic and made each step clear. When explaining a new term he was easy to understand. Each section flowed seamlessly to the next and was l...

Steel City 14 Inch Deluxe Brand 2 Speed Model 50114 (Initial Thoughts)

10-01-2014 02:30 AM by Kaleb the Swede | 21 comments »

Happy Birthday to me! I have been eyeing this band saw since the beginning of summer. My band saw previous to this was a black and decker 3 wheel 10 inch which is ok for small stuff and not ok for anything else. Anyway, after begging and pleading my wife (and finally agreeing to paint the house (grrrrrrrrrrrr)) I got a bandsaw. I got the saw yesterday and since I haven’t seen a review of this anywhere online (I looked everywhere) I decided to write in some quick thoughts to may...

Photo lights for better posts

Photo lights for better posts

08-16-2010 01:02 PM by BritBoxmaker | 6 comments »

Not strictly speaking a woodwork tool these are LED lighting units to use in video or stills photography but as I’m continually taking pics for Project posts and blogs I thought it appropriate to post them here. They are from a site based in the UK Channel islands (post free in UK) but I’m not sure they will post worldwide. The URL should you want to check them out is here I bought a pair. One goes either side of my Canon Powerhot A460. They do stack on one another quite sol...

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

06-21-2013 07:18 PM 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...

Great saw for the money, even a better package

Great saw for the money, even a better package

12-16-2012 08:32 PM by Oldtool | 11 comments »

I’ve been looking at cordless circular saws for some time now, because I want one to take with me to lumberyards to break down long boards so they fit into my small station wagon.Walking into Lowes three weeks ago looking for an unrelated item, I stumbled upon a Porter Cable combo-package of 4 tools, two Ni-cd batteries and a charger for a price I couldn’t afford to pass up – $129.00. After looking at it for about 10 seconds before I made up my mind to buy it, I was at the r...

I’ve been honored recently to be included in a new online column for American Craft Magazine:http://americancraftmag.org/search.php?tag=134 They are accepting column submissions from any writer/crafter on the subject of ‘Why I Make,’ so anyone interested can write up a short piece and submit it for consideration.

Great  saws

Great saws

03-31-2013 05:34 PM by Rob186 | 2 comments »

I have a pair of 14” tennon saws 11ppi rip and 13 xcut with walnut handles and they are well built saws the quality is second to none I have a dovetail saw by wenzloff and I think the fit and finish is a little better the brass backs are very heavy with the saw blades being a mirror Finnish. Enough about how they look how do they perform. I have had them for 4 days and have made about 40 -50 cuts and the saws track very good I am still new to sawing by hand and I can make a cut perfe...

Woodworking Techniques

Woodworking Techniques

01-18-2008 05:10 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 9 comments »

This is the latest DVD I’ve purchased by Christopher Schwarz. The DVD covers a way of working with your tools, either hand tools or power. In his demonstrations on the DVD he uses hand tools, but I talks about where power tools can or should be used. His approach of Course, Medium and Fine when it comes to: dimensioning lumber, cutting joints and shaping curves isn’t an earth shattering concept. Although I think most of us are guilty of skipping one of these steps at one ti...

Valfor Tools Bit Vise -- Router Bit maintenance and sharpening.   ( $69.95 )

Valfor Tools Bit Vise -- Router Bit maintenance and sharpening. ( $69.95 )

09-12-2013 11:59 AM by philphoto | 8 comments »

The need for the bit vise is at first glance, not exactly obvious. Many if not most woodworkers are less than diligent with maintenance and sharpening their bits and tools. It is of importance to note that a casual woodworker may not spend big dollar amounts on their bits, however all bits should be cleaned and sharpened, to operate as designed. The casual woodworker may not be aware of the need for maintenance, and some woodworkers just throw the dull bit away. As a retired professional ...

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

First, sorry but I couldn’t get a picture of the final cut to load so I loaded a picture of one of my glider’s. Check out this by MCLS!! http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/ec081111.html While I have not acutally used theirs, I did take atwo 100 grit sanding discs that were 12 inch and cut them down to 9 inch and put them on an old bosch blade that I knew left a lot of saw marks and I was amazed at how smooth the rips came out. I usually use a Forrest woodworker...
