Handplane Shootout No. 4 in D flat Minor

Handplane Shootout No. 4 in D flat Minor

11-16-2016 06:14 AM by WoodWorkLIFE | 9 comments »

Watch the Video if you don’t feel like reading. Please like, share, and subscribe View on YouTube I am a hybrid woodworker I suppose, I guess I am really a “get stuff done” woodworker. The electric planer is a thing of beauty for milling up gnarly grain and rough sawn stock. For fine tuning fits, getting smooth finish ready surfaces, and just general enjoyment you are bringing a hammer to brain surgery. There is nothing more rewarding in the shop than taking a good shaving with ...

A good video for beginning handplaning

A good video for beginning handplaning

01-08-2012 02:27 AM by Tennwood | 1 comment »

I am just getting into hand planing and got this video for Christmas along with both Schwarz’s and Garrett Hack’s handplane books. I found the video well made and edited for an instructional video. Schwartz is articulate and obviously very knowledgeable about handplanes. The following quote from book seller site well summarizes the production of this video – “This DVD doesn’t simply spout off a new idiosyncratic way to work with bench planes. Instead Schwarz e...

Wood River # 6

Wood River # 6

05-08-2010 03:27 AM by jerryo | 7 comments »

I used this plane for the first time today and I was very impressed. It is a big step up from the other planes I have been using. It has good heft to it and all of the parts were machined nice and didn’t requiure any filing.The sole was dead flat and the iron was thick and the back flat. I spent 5 minutes honing the iron to an 8000 grit water stone and took fine shavings in maple, walnut and cherry. I have never used a Lie-neilsen, Clifton orVeritas but with the way this performed IR...

... and now I can't imagine drilling large holes without it

... and now I can't imagine drilling large holes without it

09-07-2010 03:24 PM by John | 6 comments »

I bought this a year or more ago and it sat on the shelf. This past weekend I had to drill several 2” + holes with forstner bits which usually means lots of shallow cuts and smoke and heat. I just happened to notice this can on the shelf, which I had pretty much forgotten about. This lube led to no smoke and I could take deeper “cuts” – e.g. 3/4” ply in maybe 4 plunges instead of 6-8 without. I also had a lot of pocket holes to drill this weekend and I ...

Mortise and Tenon Joinery

07-10-2014 11:37 PM by Roger | 14 comments »

First I want to say thank you to Hendrik Varju for giving this very fine, 5, yes, I said 5, DVD’s as a gift to the fine pages of Lumberjocks. Also, thank you Cricket for setting up things for all and any of us to be the proud owner of this type of prize. I want to say, almost 11 hours, yes, 11 hours of the many different, and intricately detailed how-to’s, and explanations of how and why’s of the fine art of Mortise and Tenon Joinery. WHEW, that was a mouthful. I hope I sa...

Great plate and easy to install

Great plate and easy to install

08-05-2010 04:20 PM by Vrtigo1 | 4 comments »

Let me start by saying that I bought this plate for my first router table, so I don’t have any frame of reference for comparing it to other products. With that being said, I was impressed with the quality of the plate and the cutout template. The price was right, at about $50 from Amazon. I was a little worried about getting a phenolic plate and the possibility of it warping when I hang my Hitachi M12V from it, but the plate feels very strong and stable. Only time will tell, but I...

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

Ridgid R86006 drill only combo

02-28-2012 06:45 PM by cliffton | 3 comments »

First this was an upgrade from my 15 year old Craftsman 14.4 volt cordless drill. I was unable to source batteries for it and it finally died. That being said I got this at my local HD with a 20% Harbor freight coupon and 10% veteran discount. Taking it out of the box, my first impression was that it was very light and didn’t seem “hefty” enough. That being said, I noticed right away that the batteries had charge indicators on them and they both were at 2 lights out of 4...

Great for general construction!

Great for general construction!

I picked up this blade about 4 months ago while in the middle of a remodeling project. I have the el cheapo 12” sliding miter saw from HF and I still had the original blade on it that came with the saw, which is absolute junk. I had not really cut much on it and it was so dull that it was burning through things more than it was cutting! I could get it through a modern 2×4 with some effort but it was getting ridiculously dangerous to cut anything on it. The wall we were cutting ...
