More Than Worth the Money

While wandering through Lowe’s, I saw this bad boy just sitting there with a $30 price tag. Since I found myself in no position to own a table saw for the foreseeable future, it looked like it would solve one of my biggest problems: how to rip boards down. The Accu-Rip attaches to your circular saw with two small screws located at the front of the guide. It takes a bit of time to get it set right, because it’s edge must line up with the blade just so, but once it does, it wo...

PSI Strata Blank Impulse Buy

PSI Strata Blank Impulse Buy

12-26-2008 06:21 AM by dmann | 5 comments »

On impulse I added a couple of Strata Bowl blanks to my last pen order from PSI. This entry is part project and part review. I included before/after pictures for comparison. Looking at the blanks when I got them I was a little wary of putting them on the lathe. There seemed to be a lot of dry joints. I picked a blank out today and used the bandsaw to rough out a circle. After cutting off the rough outside edges the integrity of the blank looked better and I decided to give a go at turning ...

a great little kit for anyone

a great little kit for anyone

12-25-2008 12:12 AM by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

this is the woodcraft wooden fishing lure kit. i just got the basic one to start off with but woodcraft has plenty of other kits for plenty of other styles of lures. they are really nice because if you have a lathe they are really easy to make or to make with someone like a kid. also if you’re good enough you can hand carve the whole thing. thats a little bit harder than turning them. the kit comes with all the hardware as well of instructions on making them. the picture below is just a...

Elbow Grease

Elbow Grease

12-10-2008 07:56 PM by Blake | 14 comments »

I have used a lot of this stuff so I thought I would write a review. Its good for just about everything. I have used it at work, at home, and even in my shop. I try to keep it with me at all times in case I need it. It is especially useful for big jobs like waxing your car, installing a new roof, or chopping firewood. Its great for cleaning the entire home, and I even used it when I hung my Christmas lights last weekend. In fact there is no job, big or small, that Elbow Grease can’...

Blade Cleaner

Blade Cleaner

12-08-2008 12:48 AM by Maddhatter | 13 comments »

During a work conference, one of the vendors present was for Simple Green. After talking about hobbies for a while, we got on the subject of cleaning pitch and gum from blades and bits. He had offered me a sample of the product to try. It was simply amazing, one spray on a blade and the pitch and gum just dissolved. I had pulled out the worst blade of the bunch, and with some light brushing; the pitch came off as easy as you please. I am not sure if this is out on the market, I checked...

Bee's Wax Polish

Bee's Wax Polish

Very often when taking receipt of one of my pieces, my clients will ask, “How should I take are of it?” I just hand them a can of The Original Bee’s Wax polish. This stuff is as simple and basic as it gets. It’s bee’s wax and naptha. That means no silicone, no oils, no soap, and no other crap that mucks-up a finish you spent days working to achieve. I make a lot of rocking chairs, and most have leather seats. This polish works great on leather, and does a...

My S.I.L. works at a chemical plant in Yazoo City Mississippi. They use a lubricant there caller kroil. The only place that I know of that it can be bought is direct from the factory which is KANO labs located in TN. I ordered some and believe it is twice as good as WD40. Check out the web site http://www.kanolabs.com. I believe that if you try it you too will be h

Gorilla Tape

Gorilla Tape

09-28-2008 05:53 AM by Dan'um Style | 10 comments »

I won a 2nd prize in Gorilla Glue Challenge. Winners received Gorilla Glue’s products and a Gorilla Glue t-shirt. Got a nice box of various Gorilla glues and a roll of tape. I’ve been using Gorilla Glue products for years, so it was a excellent prize. Peggy enjoys wearing the Gorilla tee-shirt too. Today I used the tape and want to share a handy use for them. My tile KILN needed an element changed . Kiln sits on the concrete floor of my back porch, It is a front loading ki...
