Classic Roy for the diehard fan

Classic Roy for the diehard fan

748 days ago by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

Ok here it is….we have waited and waited and then that great day came when we finally got the news…..the Woodrights Shop is finally going to be released on dvd!!!!! Before I even review this first installment I want to say in my opinion this set may only be for the diehard Roy Underhill/Woodrights shop fan only, in regards to if you are wondering if the marked down $39.99 to $29.99 price tag is worth your money for each double disc dvd package. The shows content….is pr...

So far, so good = Scary Sharp Chisels

So far, so good = Scary Sharp Chisels

197 days ago by kajunkraft | 13 comments »

Like many woodworkers I know, sharpening chisels is a hit-or-miss proposition, or you buy an expensive “system”. The Worksharp 3000 is about $200, which from what I have seen is a not too costly option. I am very much more a power tool woodworker than a hand tool woodworker. I rarely use chiselsso have not been too concerned about them. Recently have needed them and was really disappointed with the results and decided it was time to get them set up right. Although I’...

Very nice drill bits and case.

Very nice drill bits and case.

139 days ago by madts | 2 comments »

Needing some metric drill bits I found these on Amazon. Never heard of the company before but read all the comments on Amazon. Nothing but good.I now have the drill set and I am very impressed. Very heavy metal box, all drill bits measure in with my calipers.Also these bits drill very nice holes in both wood and aluminum.I am giving these guys 4 stars because I do not know how long they will stay sharp. If they do then 5 star will be a no brainer.The set consist of 22 drill bits in sizes t...

A box book first, an inlay book second. Either way, well worth a look.

A box book first, an inlay book second. Either way, well worth a look.

1843 days ago by Durnik150 | 2 comments »

Price $16.49 via Amazon. Amazon also sells used copies through its affiliates and Half.com may have it for even less. Doug Stowe definitely knows his boxes. He’s built thousands of them over the years. Anytime an expert like this decides to share his secrets I try to pay attention. The focus on “Inlay” is a fuzzy one at best. Stowe talks in detail about how to make inlay strips and panels and for that information alone this book is worth its price. A true artist should...

Good for the price-that's it

Good for the price-that's it

Here are the bits that I bought about three months ago for some up and coming projects. I like these bits becasue they came in a huge set, I belive 16, and it was only $25. They make flat bottomed holes, angled holes, and are just very nice. They do have there downside tough. They are very hard to use if not useing in a drill press, they tend to not want to start if your useing a drill. Some of them also have a slight wobble which is not so great, but most of them are perfect. They also tend ...

Improved spray paint?

Improved spray paint?

1003 days ago by SchotterWoodworking | 2 comments »

Oh yes it is! There are more colors and more coverage per can! The paint seems to come out in greater volume so be ready for a faster spray pattern. Finally, the name of the color is on the can; instead matching the cap color! (bit of a pet peeve of mine with spray paint manufacturers) Nothing too fancy, just some basic improvements to simple products that are headed in the right direction.

Great Stile and Rail Set  - Made in USA

Great Stile and Rail Set - Made in USA

203 days ago by mcase | 4 comments »

I recently went through a real nightmare with Freud’s new stile and rail cutters. Since I stupidly trusted Freud I did not use the set until I needed it for an order for cabinets. Unfortunately It was too late to return their junk so I had to eat the cost of their useless product. I replaced their garbage with a set of American-Made cutters from Eagle America. What a world of difference! – Smooth cutting and perfectly mating. It feels good buying American products and h...

Great on instruction - short on plans

Great on instruction - short on plans

1711 days ago by epp_dog | 1 comment »

I have several of these books and like them all. I decided to try making a version of one of the boxes in this book. The instruction about “how to build a box” is great but there are no real “plans” or measured drawings. Not all the parts are listed nor all the dimensions. If you are careful to read the instructions and “build the box in your head” first you will probably work through most issues. Great book for learning – NOT a book for plans....

Whiteside Oval Edge Bit

Whiteside Oval Edge Bit

268 days ago by laketrout36 | 4 comments »

A new project called for a new router bit. Many members here on LumberJocks hold Whiteside router bits in high regard. This is the second Whiteside router bit I’ve bought this year and am once again completely satisfied with it. I’m currently making a small rustic cabin with log siding as a presentation/display/gift box. The Whiteside oval edge bit # 1476 is a 1/2” shank, 3/4” bead opening and met my requirements. Tonight I put it in the router and fed one board p...
