Great Shed

Great Shed

07-03-2008 10:11 PM by Zuki | 9 comments »

I know what you are thinking, why is a woodworker building a plastic shed. Three reasons: (1) to build one of the same size would be more expensive and (2) the marketing information says it takes 3 hours to install and (3) 5 year warranty. We have been needing a shed for a while and were eying these at Canadian Tire. When they finally went on sale we went for it. You definitely need either a trailer or pickup to bring this home. I tried to fit it in the back of my SUV but it was too bi...

Awesome! a solid performer after 20 years!

Awesome! a solid performer after 20 years!

06-21-2008 12:48 AM by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

I know, I know, Its not a true D4R that i have but its the exact same thing except for some improvements in the new D4R which i will mention. like i said the D4R is a solid performer. it takes a while to set up but once you are set up you can consistently and accurately cut as many dovetails as you want. and once you get some experience under your belt set up is a breeze. i love the adjustability so you can have almost any configuration you want and its great to have the whole 24” so yo...

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

06-13-2008 12:21 AM by Iffy | 5 comments »

This kit is really convenient. Sure you could gather all the pieces separately, but it’s nice to have them all together. The basin for the saw blades is really nice. You don’t have to worry about finding a shallow cookie sheet that might be used for food (and potentially getting someone mad at you). Just mix one part of the cleaner to 3 parts water and let your blade or router bit soak. After five minutes or so, use the included brush to scrub off the pitch and resin. Voila! Clean...

Great storage solution.

Great storage solution.

04-23-2008 07:49 PM by GaryK | 24 comments »

Looking for someplace out of the way to store all your screws/small hardware? Want to keep the dust out? Well, here is a great solution. They are made by a company called Stack-On. Here you will find their website. They come with 12 compartments with a lid that protects the contents keeping the dust out. The lidsslide back in a little to keep them open as you can see in the second picture. They can also snap shut whenclosed. They can either stand alone or be hung on the wall. I at...

Chinese firewood...I mean plywood!

Chinese firewood...I mean plywood!

04-21-2008 01:39 AM by Dadoo | 46 comments »

All of my cabinets so far, have been made from birch plywood and trimmed in pine. Now I’ve got a load of old maple for trim and want to build a bookcase system using maple plywood. I’ve looked around and have found that the only place that carries it, is Lowes. Oh, my local yard will be happy to order it…at like $70.00 a sheet…sight unseen. So being careful not to buy some cheap stuff (there’s been some bad vibes concerning Chinese plywood here) I found that the ...

Pesky Little Brass Screws and such

Pesky Little Brass Screws and such

04-17-2008 03:02 PM by MrWoody | 13 comments »

Because of a recent post by Betsy I decided to post this review.Auger gimlets are small hand drills that closely match screw sizes and are handy for pre-drilling holes for Little brass screws. I also use them for drilling small holes in small pieces when making toys.I listed them as Lee Valley but they are available elsewhere as they are not made by Lee Valley.I’ve had mine for over 20 years and the smallest is showing some wear, so I would say they are a good investment

Never drive screws with drill again

Never drive screws with drill again

03-27-2008 06:35 AM by dlgWoodWork | 12 comments »

I recently bought the Makita 18 volt drill. I wish I would have bought the kit that included the impact. I have never owned an impact before, but have heard good things. I actually ordered this on ebay as a bare tool only. I came in brand new condition. I was anxious to try it out. I put a battery on it and started to drive some screws into some scrap. I was amazed. My drill works well with a screw guide, but this was effertless. There was absolutely no twist when I drove the screws like w...

Great Workshop Helper - Horrible Directions

Great Workshop Helper - Horrible Directions

03-23-2008 03:39 AM by teenagewoodworker | 5 comments »

well i just got my second workmate so i figured that i could do a review on this one because it is the newer version (my old one was the one my dad had for about 10-15 years. it is a great little shop helper. it works at a vise, a workbench, and if you put a piece of plywood on it when it is fully extended than i little assembly table. there are many many little uses that you will find for this around the shop. they last a long time as my dad’s did also.the only reason why his broke was...
