Woodworker's Edge "Techniques" DVD's Cabriole Leg

Woodworker's Edge "Techniques" DVD's Cabriole Leg

01-12-2010 03:43 AM by Karson | 2 comments »

Last fall I went to visit Chuck Bender's shop and to meet Glen Huey Glen is the Senior Editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine. Glen was teaching a class on a Tea Table that belinged to his mother and had been in his home for as long as he could remember. The plans have been published in Popular Woodworking Magazine. This review has nothing to do with the table. It’s just a lead in to me meeting Glen. A great guy and of course Chuck is also. While I was there chatting with Glen...

Top notch Waterborne Finish

Top notch Waterborne Finish

01-12-2010 01:48 AM by mckenziedrums | 2 comments »

When I moved into the new house I had to set up my “spray” area near to a hot water heater… That pretty much eliminated any chance I had of spraying flammable liquids. Since I don’t have a dedicated work shop I needed a water based finish I could count on. I’ve tried many of the brands you can get from the box stores and they always had that blue tinge to them that drove me nuts on naturally finished wood. Sure I can get away with blue drums but I didn’t wa...

Better than your average Tung Oil by miles...

Better than your average Tung Oil by miles...

01-12-2010 12:59 AM by mckenziedrums | 14 comments »

I was surprised I didn’t see a review for this one… In the world of drum building (and probably most woodworking in general) tung oil is the gateway drug to finishing. It’s pretty much impossible to screw up and while it takes forever to apply in amounts that actually build up, you end up with a fantastic finish. Myself… well I’m a little impatient when it comes to finishing. When I do use an oil finish I want it to build quickly, fumes be darned. Waterlox ...

Great budget way to get into spraying finishes...

Great budget way to get into spraying finishes...

01-11-2010 07:24 PM by mckenziedrums | 25 comments »

I live or die by my sprayed finishes. In fact, I often joke that I learned woodworking backwards… Long before I even knew what a rabbet cut was I could tell you how to spray a mirror smooth finish. These days I see more and more folks looking into HVLP spraying systems but worried about spending the cash. This little gun goes on sale from time to time and can be had for $29-49 depending on what the price is that week at Harborfreight. I’ve had this in my arsenal for 2 years now...

Problematic Hitachi CW-40

Problematic Hitachi CW-40

01-10-2010 05:24 PM by solidoak | 32 comments »

Let me perfectly honest and up front here. I have owned the Hitachi CW-40 for about a year now. In some categories it performs very well. For instance, I like the soft start feature and the saw has very little vibration. But I consider there to be at least 2 MAJOR PROBLEMS with this saw. 1. The first problem is that it will not accept a spiral pinless blade. I have tried just about everything to install a spiral blade in this saw, but nothing I do works. The blade kinks, or breaks, or...

Good personal filter, but disappointing

Good personal filter, but disappointing

01-09-2010 07:06 PM by Chris Wright | 14 comments »

This system was purchased when we started up our turning program with the patients from Walter Reed with the intent that if someone needed better filtration then just a dust mask. During operation it provides excellent filtration and fresh air along with the obvious face protection one likes when turning. The motor is quiet so you’re not deafened by the constant hum of a fan near your ear. However, it does fail in a few respects. The battery takes a while to charge and the last time...

Lightly rusty rabbet block plane

Lightly rusty rabbet block plane

01-09-2010 11:03 AM by cmaeda | 2 comments »

I know what some (or all!) of you must be thinking. Only 4 stars!Well, I got this plane as a Christmas gift from my aunt and I was really excited because I couldn’t believe she gave me such a nice and expensive gift.I opened it and saw right away that there seemed to be a light coat of rust on the plane. It was especially noticeable on the sole. (See picture) I realized that whoever packaged the plane must have forgot to coat the plane with oil. The frog was oiled but not the rest o...
