A good quick finish for small projects.

Ever wish you could spray a finish without the complexitys of compressors hoses and the clumsy time it takes to clean out the gun after?Ever wish you didnt have to go through the effort of the already mentioned set up just to spray something like a jewelry box or small items? Well this lacquer is for you!In a convenient spray can just shake it up and your good to go.You can even turn the tip of the nozzle to change the spray from horizontal to vertical.It sprays nice and even however it does...

Precission triangle in use.

05-30-2010 08:23 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 5 comments »

After my first impressions post which many of you confused with my over all judging of the tool I could wait and more. I grabbed some Walnut and started to make a box. I deiced to not do anything elaborate and use no layout tools but my pencil a 2ft ruler and this little guy.First off I used the triangle to set my saw blade. I put it up on the table and cranked my blade into 45 degrees up againest the triangle. I then put on a digital angle reader and it was dead at 45.I then cut all my parts...

A gem from Porter Cable

A gem from Porter Cable

05-30-2010 08:11 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 8 comments »

I went through a period of having to do A LOT of glue ups to make table tops and wide panels.Not wanting to dowel it all I decided it was time to splurge on a new toy! I picked up this little baby.Right out of the box things were looking great. It comes with a nice hardshell case. Some things about this case I really like are how spacious it is. I hate it when the hardshell cases hardly hold the tool and you have to mash it to get it close. Thats IF you figure out how to get the tool in with ...

First Impressions of the 10 piece set of Japanese Chisels from Grizzly

First Impressions of the 10 piece set of Japanese Chisels from Grizzly

05-26-2010 07:35 AM by David Kirtley | 17 comments »

(Sorry for the picture, it is Grizzly’s picture of these chisels. I would have taken my own but it’s late and I didn’t realize that a review required a picture to post. Mine look just like the ones in the picture.) Well, I have been debating a long time and finally went ahead and ordered the 10 piece Japanese chisel set from Grizzly. I had read other reviews from elsewhere and I figured that I would like to try them out. I have always wanted to try out some Japanese Chis...

Excellent Hans Karlsson Drawknife From Country Workshops

Excellent Hans Karlsson Drawknife From Country Workshops

05-26-2010 03:57 AM by Caleb James | 14 comments »

I recently purchased a $235 drawknife with leather cover from Country Workshops after being totally disappointed using a LeeValley carving drawknife that was $65. This drawknife on the other hand was exactly what I wanted. It was worth every dime. I couldn’t be more pleased. I have never used a tool that said it was honed ready for use and it was actually true. It holds and unbelievable edge. The steel is just awesome. This tool looks very common but don’t let it fool you. I used ...

Fellow lumberjocks I hate to post a bad review but this dovetail jig has taken the last of my Patience that I allocated for it :( I bought this last year after realizing I need a jig, well I am fed up with trying to fix an almost new jig after reading the instruction manual and setting it up accordingly I placed the wood in the holder and tightened the clamp and after 3 seconds SNAP!!!! the knobs and bushing holders were broke after calling grizzly and getting a new bag of knobs and nylon b...

Pull saw with western handle, excellent value

Pull saw with western handle, excellent value

05-25-2010 07:26 AM by wch | 14 comments »

This is a Japanese-style pull saw, but with a nontraditional design: it has a western-style handle, and a plastic reinforcing spine. It’s precise, has a very fine kerf (0.017”) and tracks straight, thanks to the spine. I find that it’s easier to cut straight with this saw, compared to other Japanese saws that I’ve used which don’t have a spine. I first found out about this saw from a post on the Popular Woodworking blog. This saw is quite inexpensive (about $2...

Easy Lift System for the DeWalt DW788

Easy Lift System for the DeWalt DW788

05-23-2010 04:13 AM by cmckerliesr | 4 comments »

I recently purchased the Easy Lift System for the DeWalt DW788 Scrollsaw from wildwooddesigns.com. The Easy Lift System that will hold the upper arm in an open position making it easier to change blades or thread a blade through a work piece. The design is very simple and you get all the hardware needed to install the lift system. I do have a slight problem with the instructions, but part of that comes from being a technical writer. If you read the instructions and follow them word for wor...

A box making vacation in England

A box making vacation in England

05-23-2010 01:23 AM by RogerBean | 6 comments »

For the aspiring cellist to spend three days with Yo-Yo Ma would be something special, certainly. For an aspiring box maker to spend three days one on one with Andrew Crawford is similar. Earlier this month, I had the pleasure to visit Andrew’s shop in Shropshire, England, and had such a great experience others might like to hear about it. Andrew builds what I consider “traditional” boxes. I confess to a clear preference for boxes that look like boxes. Many types of containers fall into...

One solution for making dowels

One solution for making dowels

05-21-2010 11:01 PM by mole | 4 comments »

I was looking for some solutions to make my own dowels so I can use them in some joineries and wood threading task. So far, some of the solutions that I found are.. wood turning, rotary plane (commercial or hand made). dowel/tenon cutters. I have tried a simple wood turning method (using electric power drill) which result in acceptable dowels (may be it will be perfect if I have a real (metal?) lathe. Anyway, using turning method, it takes quite some time for me, so here comes the Veritas d...
