This is a review of Chipping Away – http://www.chippingaway.com/ From their site: Chipping Away began operation in 1992 when Pop (Dennis Moor) took an early retirement and decided to keep a few cans of beans in the cupboard by means of selling his carvings. He soon found himself being asked to teach chip carving as well as present seminars at some of the local wood shows. Rogers Public Television asked him to do a television series of 45 individual shows in which he appeared as H...

Best screws ever

Best screws ever

01-13-2009 05:46 PM by motthunter | 23 comments »

No matter how many years I have been driving screws into wood, I still end up stripping the heads every once in a while and or slipping off with my power driver and foolishly marring the wood in a project. I switched to square drive screws and I have not made a goof like this in ages. I first started using them in pocket hole joinery, but now I use them for everything. There are several sources for these screws but I get mine from McFeeley’s. They have a good selection and prices ...

Makita Contractor Bag

Makita Contractor Bag

01-09-2009 06:13 AM by toolman | 0 comments »

We just got done reviewing the Makita contractor bag. Very nice bag. Lots of outside and inside pockets for tools and other items. We really liked that Makita went the extra distance and used metal clips for the shoulder strap instead of plastic. One item that some may find useful, even though we doubt we would ever use, is the rollers on the bag. Basically Makita made the bag like a suitcase with a telescopic handle and small wheels on the bottom to roll your tools to the jobsite. Again s...

Makita LXT Reciprocating Saw - BJR182

Makita LXT Reciprocating Saw - BJR182

01-08-2009 12:45 AM by toolman | 3 comments »

We used this saw the other day and it is a great saw. I have always been a fan of the Sawzall, but this has sold me. Obviously it doesn’t have the power the V28 Sawzall has, but I love the blade change system. When the blade is in place, it stays in place, even if it binds. If you want to take it out, it will come out very easy. The best thing is you can change the blade with one hand. The locking system will lock into place and allow you to insert the blade easy. Besides the blade s...

More Than Worth the Money

More Than Worth the Money

12-31-2008 01:20 AM by Tomcat1066 | 10 comments »

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 ...

Thats right SHAVINGS! i can’t wait until i have some time to properly hone and really giv...

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’...
