Medium Density Overlay (MDO) Plywood for Jig Building and General Use

Medium Density Overlay (MDO) Plywood for Jig Building and General Use

10-12-2009 08:31 PM by Jerry | 31 comments »

As an alternative to the less than ideal MDF, a cabinetmaker friend of mine recently turned me onto “MDO”, aka “Signboard”. It is made up of phenolic resin coated paper laminated between layers of ply (11 layers of wood in 3/4”) and twice again as many of the phenolic- resin impregnated paper. Its what roadsigns are made of, its waterproof, flat , flat, flat and did I mention waterproof? You wont find it in Home Depot or Lowes, I have looked. I have had success at many of the local lumbery...

I’ve always called Harbor Freight “God’s gift to men” and since there’s been a bit of hubub about this tool paradise on this site recently I thought I’d post some reviews of my favorite HF Gems… This one I just bought TODAY and I already can see that it is among the best tools in the store! For one thing, this thing is extremely well made! That isn’t always the case at HF… ok… I suppose it is RARELY the case. But if you had this j...

This is my 2-cents on this mighty fine finish from Generals. It’s grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr8!, As Tony the Tiger would have said. I used this for the 1st time on the 3 in 1 crib that I just built for my youngest Grndson. I used a sort of “French-Ball” to apply the recommended 3 coats. Small make-up pads (believe me, I don’t use make-up)lol, inside of a pair of panty-hose….......OK, stop laughin, I don’t wear those either…....I do have a hard time goin ...

an article and my review on the forbes top 10 most dangerous tools

02-07-2010 09:57 AM by BOB67CAM | 30 comments »

The Ten Most Dangerous Power Tools Forbes magazine recently published a list of some of the most dangerous power tools on the market. While we definitely are power tool advocates, we also want to promote safety on our site. These tools are not toys, and users must understand the potential harm they can do if not used properly! do not aim at what you do not plan to kill POWER NAILERS: They make short work of framing, but power nailers also send 37,000 people a year to emergency rooms acc...

The tool I could not do without

The tool I could not do without

05-03-2014 06:23 PM by b2rtch | 30 comments »

My wife bought me this tool for my birthday probably six years ago. I have used it for demolition and construction to cut copper pipes and wood, to sand where no other sander whould have done the job and for many other things. This tool took me out of a bind countless time. This is a wonderful little detail sander. This morning I used it again to trim pieces of wood where not other tool could have done it. If you do not already have one of this, go buy one. Sometimes they are on sale ...

Mechanix Wear Gloves When I am out in the shop I always wear gloves to protect my hands from bangs, bumps, scratches, cuts and anything else that can happen. I have tried various types of snug fitting gloves, but the ones that I reach for most often are the Mechanix Utility All Purpose. http://www.mechanix.com/hardware/utility-glove This is what their site says . . . For a work glove that features quality and value, step up to the ?all-purpose Utility Glove from Mechanix Wear. It i...

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

These blades are so dull, I couldn’t even cut my finger with these. I contacted Freud directly about it and all I received was “thats our blades thats how they come. If you don’t like it you should return them to where you bought them. We don’t get any complaints about our blades” Umm YES you do get complaints because I was complaining with him right then. The dull blades I am replacing are sharper than these brand new Freud blades and Freud has ZERO concer...

Rockler Exotic Cutoffs 10 lbs. Assortment

Rockler Exotic Cutoffs 10 lbs. Assortment

04-15-2011 05:51 AM by BreakingBoardom | 29 comments »

So with money being tight lately and starting to work on some smaller projects, I decided to take the plunge and buy a 10 lbs. box of assorted exotic cutoffs. The reviews on the Rockler site have been mixed with some happy and some unhappy. I guess what it probably boils down to is what your expectations are going in. I was expecting some small pieces of exotic species that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford separately. Others said the boxes were mostly Purpleheart and Padauk wh...

Accept Credit Cards With Square and Your iPhone

Accept Credit Cards With Square and Your iPhone

07-14-2011 10:14 PM by odie | 29 comments »

I’ve seen this advertized today on LumberJocks’ pages. I’ve been using it for 2 months and absolutely love it. If you’ve read my blog “So you want to go pro” I complained about the outrageous costs for accepting credit cards. Square is a new company that has NO monthly fees as all other companies do. This uses a card reader (they supply for free) and your iPhone. Compare my experience below: Old Credit Card Company $56.29 / mo. if used or notAll cards ha...
