Clean your House with a Ridgid Vac

Clean your House with a Ridgid Vac

12-10-2009 09:16 PM by d_webb | 22 comments »

Yeah that’s right, I clean my house with a shop vac. I recently learned that normal vacuum cleaners are a joke compared to shop vacs. Earlier this summer when my lame hoover choked on penny, I decided it was time to purchase a worthwhile vacuum cleaner. After doing some vacuum research, it appeared the best thing on the market was a Dyson. However, I was in no mood to spend $50,000 on a vacuum cleaner that has a one wheel/ball thingy (maybe in better economic times). Then it hit me, ...

Doweling made very simple at a very affordable price

Doweling made very simple at a very affordable price

12-10-2009 05:54 PM by David Craig | 20 comments »

I am relatively new to the field of woodworking and my experience with more complex joinery is very limited, so I appreciate any device/jig/contraption that makes my entry into this area a little more simple. I have seen many different types of doweling jigs out there, but Wolfcraft put together an item that is both inexpensive and very simple to use. The Wolfcraft 3751405 Dowel Pro Doweling Jig Kit comes with the doweling jig pictured, an extra board clamp to keep the board you are working o...

The Texas Furniture Maker's Show in Kerrville, TX Rocks!

There’s only a few days left (ends Dec. 5th). But, if there’s any Texas Lumberjocks close enough to Kerrville for a day trip, it’s well worth your time. Some awesome work on display! I went yesterday and it has inspired me to continue to strive to raise the level of my work. You can see winner pics on line if you Google the show.

HTC 2000 - 3000 Mobile Bases

HTC 2000 - 3000 Mobile Bases

11-26-2009 04:46 AM by ND2ELK | 10 comments »

Both the HTC 2000 – 3000 mobile bases are very will built. They seem to be strong and have no flexing or sagging under weight. The machines are solid when sitting on the levelers. Moving of the machines are very easy when the swivel casters are engaged. Because the frames are adjusted in 1” increments I shimmed them with wood strips so the machines would not move in the frames. I would recommend these for your shop and am pleased with them.

Easy Mortises, Dowels, and More.

Easy Mortises, Dowels, and More.

11-04-2009 10:11 PM by Thomas | 11 comments »

So I’ve used the router/table saw combination of doing mortise and tenon joinery, but for a kitchen island/table build I was looking at 32 mortises to cut on the six legs of the piece, plus 222 dowel holes for the slotted shelving and cross braces. Given the design, everything had to be very precise, so my setups had to be highly repeatable. I looked into mortise machines, and as much as I wanted that Powermatic, I had a hard time justifying the $400 (with accessories) price tag for ...

Simple and Inexpensive

Simple and Inexpensive

11-03-2009 07:23 AM by Jimi_C | 15 comments »

I’ve been looking at getting a Kreg pocket hole jig for a while now, with it basically being a toss up between the R3 Jr. and the extremely simple mini jig kit. I wasn’t really looking at the K4 or higher systems, since they go up in price pretty quickly, and as always I’m working on a budget. In addition, I always planned to get the face clamps, so the extra clamping capabilities of the more expensive systems seemed unnecessary for my level of work. I bought the small fac...
