Shop Flash from Grizzly

I suppose there are two types of people. Those who like to talk on the phone and those who don’t. I would be squarely in the second group. My wife would be in the first group as she likes to talk and talk. When the phone rings at my house, I look the other way. But there are times when I am waiting for that important return phone call and the wife is not home. My phone out in the shop works fine with just the stereo going but if I am using the dust collector and almost any ot...

So you want to be a Manly woodworker....

So you want to be a Manly woodworker....

I have been getting more interested in carving utilitarian items lately. I have been carving some spoons thinking of branching out some. I picked up this video to get a broader overview of working with green wood. First of all I would say this is an excellent video that exceeded all of my expectations. Jogge takes you through making a dough bowl and a wooden spoon from beginning to end. He demonstrates selection of materials and then takes you through every step demostrating tools, ...

New Fence

New Fence

450 days ago by welcon | 1 comment »

Well finally picked up my fence and rails for my General cabinet saw. Was a little dissapointed when I had to start removing parts from it and straightening them out in my vise. The measuring tape that sticks onto the front rail was all creased, and the backing tape that comes on it was half peeled off. The bolts that anchor the rails onto the table seemed a little light, and the melamine extension table that comes with it was not truely flat. All in all it is all mounted and set up so I can ...

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

728 days ago by dbhost | 5 comments »

A little disclaimer here. I hate sanding, anything that slows the process down, or fails in the process that I do not want to be doing in the first place earns instant hatred from me, which was what got me looking for a new sanding block in the first place. I started out with a 3M rubber sanding block which is basically the same design as this Norton, just different materials. And it’s the choice in materials that makes all the difference in the world. Simply put, the Norton is a nic...

Lightweight lever ratchet clamp

Lightweight lever ratchet clamp

1855 days ago by Tony | 1 comment »

I recently purchased quite a few of these clamps – see my blog http://lumberjocks.com/topics/5240. These clamps are available in 200 mm (8”) and 250mm (10”), with a 80mm (3”) jaw length. I found the clamps to be more than adequate for light clamping. They are very easy to use especially on smaller items such as boxes, where a light touch may be needed with thinner materials are used, however they are equally at home clamping jigs to the table or machine. These cla...

Ever wish you could spray a finish without the complexitys of compressors hoses and the clumsy time it takes to clean out the gun after?Ever wish you didnt have to go through the effort of the already mentioned set up just to spray something like a jewelry box or small items? Well this lacquer is for you!In a convenient spray can just shake it up and your good to go.You can even turn the tip of the nozzle to change the spray from horizontal to vertical.It sprays nice and even however it does...

Helps Keep Shop Socket clutter to a mininum

Helps Keep Shop Socket clutter to a mininum

1540 days ago by David Craig | 7 comments »

As I probably have over-stated many times, I have a small basement shop and I will frequently look for items that can either reduce tool clutter or increase safety. I have a number of shop items that require wrenches or sockets to change settings, swap items, perform assembly, etc. When it comes to car maintenance, I love my socket set, but when I am working downstairs, I find them a bit of a pain. Sockets drop to the floor and hide themselves and they can sometimes be a danger because they a...

This is a must have DVD for every wookworker..It's not just for furniture designers

This is a must have DVD for every wookworker..It's not just for furniture designers

931 days ago by Angela | 4 comments »

I’m about finished making my TV stand. During the construction of the top, I thought there must be some formula to determine the overhang of the top. When I asked this question on LJ, I received a variety of answers but nothing with a formula. Since asking this question and designing my TV stand I came across a DVD produced by Lie-Nielsen called Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design. It discusses the proportions of furniture and how to determine the proportions of a piece of furnitur...

Saved me a lot of time and money

Saved me a lot of time and money

Despite years of trying, we never really broke our cat of racing up the stairs and then launching herself at the door jamb, semi-firmly grasping the molding with her claws and sliding down. The results were predictable. Selling the house provided an unwanted opportunity to test this product. There are two photos of the molding here, one before using Howard’s Restor-A-Finish (Golden Oak) and one after. I hope they do the improvement justice. If it turns out the photos don’t ...

Great gun for the money

Great gun for the money

1522 days ago by SchotterWoodworking | 8 comments »

I purchased this stapler after being disappointed with the 1” gun that came in my PC combo kit. It is a full range narrow crown stapler: 18ga. 1 1/2”. It has a selector on the trigger for bump-action or sequential firing which is a nice feature, as opposed to swapping out triggers. The carry handle is flimsy, but aren’t they all. The gun has never jammed and is oil-free. Compared to a gun like the Senco SKSXP that I use at work, it’s a toy; but, for less than $100.00 (...
