Rockler Coping Sled

Rockler Coping Sled

329 days ago by Albe | 6 comments »

I have never wrote a tool review but after using Rockler’s Coping Sled and not seeing any other reviews I figured I’d try my luck. I actually bought the copping sled several years ago when I got frustrated when using a rail and stile bit set to do the profile on the end grain. No matter how hard I tried bit seemed to grab and it threw it off track. I again realized how much of a lifesaver it is when using it again doing the same operation. Although the copping sled seems a little steep ...

Cookies in the shop . . . mmmm.

Cookies in the shop . . . mmmm.

630 days ago by ic3ss | 10 comments »

So, I’ve been eyeing these silly things for about two years now wondering how would I use them and would it really be worth having. Well, I finally picked up a set at Rockler on sale for $8 last week and decided to use them for finishing a top to an end table. My old Unisaw serves double duty as a workbench/finish assembly talbe in my garage so I put down newspaper and the table top sits on the cookies. What I noticed was now nice it is to lay down wipe on poly on the surface and just ...

Discount code makes it well worth the price!

Discount code makes it well worth the price!

I’ll keep this simple. Popular Woodworking is running a special deal on their online e-book subscriptions. For ten bucks a month (half off) you get full access to back issues of both Popular Woodworking and Woodworking magazines, plus tons of great books that usually cost a bundle. I subscribed because I learn a lot from reading stuff like this, and the price was too good to pass up. It’s a limited time thing, so if you’re interested, you’d better get on it! Here...

Cutting Mat

Cutting Mat

1769 days ago by dustyal | 5 comments »

I originally bought this mat for my mother-in-law who used it for her sewing. My wife also used one for her picture mat cutting. They work well with the rotary cutters and mat cutter. I find it extremely useful for woodworking when laying out projects, doing dry fits and glue ups, etc. I would think it might come in handy for veneer work and other projects where you might want a larger protected surface that won’t mar the finished product. It is hard enough to stay flat and smoot...

Renovate Wood & Transitional Planes Video

Renovate Wood & Transitional Planes Video

126 days ago by Vincent Nocito | 0 comments »

I picked up the video at the Woodworking Show after Bob completed his seminar. The video is about 80 minutes long and goes through the steps needed to bring wood bodied and transitional planes back to life. Topics include, rust removal, Japanning, flattening, tuning and building a complete replacement body. There are additional PDF files on the disk that have templates for making throat patches, totes, and new wood bodies. This DVD is a good resource for anyone starting out restoring wood...

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Received my copy of the new WoodWhisperer book, Finishing, It ain't over till it's over... by Marc Spagnuolo.. A no nonsense approach to a very important part of any project… the finishing… Marc takes a subject many of us cringe about and shows us, in his inimitable style, how to make the most of various finishing techniques… from the initial preparation to the final buff… This book does not bog us down with technical jargon and formulas but gives us a c...

Self Centering Drill Bits - Installing Kreg tracks for clamping, jigs

Self Centering Drill Bits - Installing Kreg tracks for clamping, jigs

195 days ago by darthford | 11 comments »

So I needed to install 5 of these Kreg tracks in my new RAS table, 5×6 screws each for a total of 30 screws. The screws need to be centered and flush (not sticking up half crooked) so you can slide the clamp bolts in the track. There’s little to no room for error. I was still contemplating how to at least center punch them when I was wandering the hardware store and spied these Isomax self centering hinge drill bits, brilliant! Do they do exactly what they advertise, yep! It mad...

A little rough around the edges but a great tool

A little rough around the edges but a great tool

183 days ago by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I must start this of by saying that I really would like to give this 4.5 stars but that’s not available here. I set this up on my old grinder and this week I bought a new Rikon grinder from Woodcraft so I mounted that to my base. It does take some time to set these bases up but it’s not hard at all. The two tool rests are made from heavy welded steel and the two bases are an extruded aluminum and is nothing if not stout. The only issue that I had with it is the flat grinding rest,...
