I want to let everyone know who doesn’t know or who has not visited the website prowoodworkingtips.com to please take the time to do so.. when I started out to make the tv lift cabinet and try my hand at veneering.. it was Lee Jesberger and his website that made my life so much easier.. I made all the jigs and bought all the tools he recommends on his site and ever asked Lee himself where to buy certain things I could not find at my local Rockler store.. the site is extremely informativ...

mail order hardwood lumber

mail order hardwood lumber

07-17-2009 06:35 PM by KDL | 25 comments »

This is a wood source review. I was impressed enough with the vendor to want to post. They are knowledgeable and personable. I’m building cabinets and wanted quartersawn/rift cherry for the door rails and stiles. My local supplier doesn’t separate cherry into rift and quartered, so I went to the Internet and found http://www.dunham-hardwoods.com. Marty, the gentleman I dealt with, understood what I wanted, was able to find the material, hit-or-miss plane it, cut it to a shi...

Ordered New Lathe Today

Ordered New Lathe Today

07-16-2009 02:15 AM by StanCurtis | 17 comments »

Today I ordered a new JET JWL-1442VSK wood lathe. The dealer did not have one in-stock, but it is to be delivered from the distribution center on Friday per his promise. I would like to thank ND2ELK for introducing me to LumberJocks.com. The reviews and forums were a great help to me. One of the reasons I chose this particular lathe is the accessories I have for my JET 1014 lathe are nearly all usable on the larger unit. My small lathe, which I have been using for three or four years, w...

Jorgensen 7200 Series Bar Clamp

Jorgensen 7200 Series Bar Clamp

07-14-2009 09:59 PM by tenontim | 8 comments »

I’ve been upgrading my clamp collection, to include these 7200 series bar clamps, by Jorgensen. I had a couple of older Jorgensen clamps, and was happy with them. They were a quality product. Recently, I purchased a dozen of the 36” bar clamps, to replace the bar clamps that I normally use for my table top glue ups. The first time I used these clamps, I had the clutch plates on 4 clamps break. One clamp broke all 5 clutches at the same time. I was quite disappointed, since t...

Makita MAC2400 Oiled Twin Hot Dog Compressor

Makita MAC2400 Oiled Twin Hot Dog Compressor

07-14-2009 08:34 AM by ND2ELK | 13 comments »

My lovely wife posted this tool review in one of my blogs by mistake. I wasn’t about to complain about it at that time. One thing I have learned over the years is, if MaMa does something nice for you, Never complain! Now that it has been awhile I thought I should post it in the tool review section. After doing a lot of reserch and looking at different compressors, I settled on this Makita. It is by far the most unbelievably quit compressor I have ever heard. Because my shop is small,...

Ryobi 18v Impact Driver

Ryobi 18v Impact Driver

07-14-2009 06:10 AM by JMG | 12 comments »

I bought this impact to replace an old DeWalt driver. I got the driver, a compact drill, 2 compact lithium batteries, and a charger for only $179 instead of a new DeWalt impact with no battery for $279. Sounded like a good deal so I jumped on it even though the Ryobi’s torque didn’t come close to the DeWalt(880 in/lbs for the Ryobi and 1,330 in/lbs for the DeWalt). The Ryobi struggled to drive lags into the old petrified wood of the house I was adding the deck on. It also bogg...

Hock Plane Iron

Hock Plane Iron

My latest project was constructing a wooden hand plane / smoother type. The blade that I ordered came from Hock a company out of Ft. Bragg California.

I order two blade at a cost of 52.00 a piece which seem to be expensive but the rep. on these blade are that they last and hold a very sharp ed...

First Dovetails Ever.  Easy as Pie with the Akeda BC24 Dovetail Jig

First Dovetails Ever. Easy as Pie with the Akeda BC24 Dovetail Jig

07-12-2009 06:10 PM by thiel | 21 comments »

First, Some BackgroundThere’s one thing I should clarify so you’ll put this jig in the proper perspective: I’ve never made a dovetail. Not by hand, not by machine. I’ve never even seen a dovetail jig used (except on New Yankee Workshop). To be perfectly honest, I didn’t (until this morning) know the difference between a pin and a tail. That being said, I have aspirations of building fine furniture of my own design some day. And with those aspirations in mind, I try to make each tool p...

Possibly the best pushblock ever made

Possibly the best pushblock ever made

07-12-2009 04:27 PM by Chris Wright | 17 comments »

Ok, so maybe that’s a bit strong of a statement, but it is a great push block. This push block allows you to feed stock through a table saw on both sides of the blade, parallel with out any slipping. One of the sides is 1/4 wide, the other is a 1/2 inch and there’s an adjustable center foot that can be slide to the left or right to make way for the blade. On the bottom is a great gripping surface that will find positive grip on just about any surface, well every surface I’...
