We have tested many tools so far and recently decided to start recording our data.. This is the first “documentary” video of us giving this router a Hardwood Pounding! Take the time to at least watch the funeral. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NWm63oOvAQ

Bench Cookies from Rockler

Bench Cookies from Rockler

1850 days ago by handi | 12 comments »

I got the chance to try out Rockler’s new Bench Cookies over the weekend. Bench Cookies are like hockey pucks with rubber faces. They act like a routing mat to keep parts from sliding around as you sand or rout them. The difference is that Bench Cookies lift the part up about 1” off the work surface so that you have clearance for bearing bits or cut throughs. They work surprisingly well, I sanded and routed parts on them with complete confidence. I even covered them in sa...

Great Sanding and Finishing Pad

Great Sanding and Finishing Pad

1126 days ago by TheDane | 12 comments »

I had been looking for a better solution for ‘scuffing’ project parts between finishing coats. Though sandpaper was an obvious choice, I seemed to be going through quite a bit and was leaving a lot of scratches between coats. #0000 steel wool works pretty well, but it is messy and (supposedly) doesn’t play well with water-based finishes. Enter Rhynosoft Pads (thanks to Charles Neil for the tip!). These are terrific. The pads are a good size (4-1/2” X 5-1/2”...

Power Tool Security Products

Power Tool Security Products

1590 days ago by d_webb | 4 comments »

Like everyone else, I’ve used tons of different bike locks and padlocks to protect my tools and equipment. But I recently found a really nice cable system that is specifically designed to protect contractors’ tools. It’s called a Skyd Cable System. It has a 20 foot retractable cable that is housed in a diamond plate aluminum box. The box is bolted into the bed of your truck. Mine is in between the wheel-well and tailgate, and it’s out of the way in that location. Overall, the cable sy...

Great lumber in Southern California

Great lumber in Southern California

I don’t remember how I heard of this place, but having exhausted my search for decent Walnut in San Diego I decided to try something different. These guys are located in the Brea / Anaheim area so it was about an hour drive for me. I called up first and spoke with a sales rep – Steven – who informed me that their stock was great with extra wide boards. One thing that is different than what many are used to is that you don’t pick your lumber. You tell them what yo...

I have been looking for a long time to find a quality built pneumatic sanding drum, and my wife beat me to it. She found this one at Lee Valley Tools, and gave it to me for an early Christmas gift. I purchased half a dozen used wine barrels this Summer and it is the perfect tool for sanding the curved surfaces of the staves. I use my 6”x108” belt sander for doing the edges.

Hand Planes In The Modern Shop

1077 days ago by Gary Roberts | 9 comments »

Kerry Pierce is a widely published author (19 books and 200 articles) on the subject of woodworking as well as a practicing cabinet/furniture maker, hand tool expert and all around good guy. A while ago he contacted me regarding the use of some images from my website to be used in a book he was working on, the subject of which was to be the use of hand tools in the modern woodworking shop. I’m always please to offer assistance in instances such as this so we engaged in some pleasant con...

A Short & Sweet Resource

A Short & Sweet Resource

This book review is from the July 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag. Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw: The Missing Shop Manual “Bench Planes” by Ernie Conover. At first, I thought about rating this little booklet as a 4-star because I don’t use planes. But, as I started watching the enclosed video and re-looked at the contents, I realized that it definitely had to be a 5-star. If I had a plane I might just have put it to work after being in...

Great Product!

Great Product!

1628 days ago by Newfounlandwood | 5 comments »

Hey guys, I recently received a shipment of tools from Lee Valley and I’ll be putting in a small review on all of them. A straight edge is something that I have never owned before. It’s not something that is easy to find in Newfoundland, Canada (along with any other woodworking tools). But with the purchase of a router table and the making of a mitre saw stand, my twenty dollar HD level was not going to cut it. I am very pleased with this product. The length of the body is conc...

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

58 days ago by retfr8flyr | 7 comments »

I have had my Baileigh Industrial JP-1250 for about 8 months now and I think I have used it enough to give a credible review. Baileigh has been around in the metal machine business for years but just started getting into woodworking machines. I did a lot of research before I pulled the trigger on this machine and decided, at the price it was selling for, I couldn’t pass it up. The machine arrived in great shape with excellent packaging. It comes with 4 heavy casters but they don̵...
