The Master Techniques of Marquetry

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

08-21-2008 12:39 AM by SteveKorz | 7 comments »

I bought this DVD to gain a better understanding of Marquetry. I was very impressed with Silas Kopf’s methods of teaching his craft. Silas described multiple methods of marquetry and parquetry in his DVD. To watch him work gave me an exponential amount of knowledge. I don’t know that I would have obtained all that knowledge if I just read a book or looked at pictures. The back of the DVD case says: Silas Kopf demonstrates the most important ways marquetry and inlay have ...

Brass Set Up Bars - A Must Have For Your Shop

Brass Set Up Bars - A Must Have For Your Shop

08-20-2008 10:35 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 10 comments »

These set up bars are GREAT!!! They allow you to make easy and accurate measurements. I have a couple of photos to show you. The first is the brass set up bars in action. I used them to set up the spacing in this router jointing operation. 3/8” set up bar and a 1/2” router bit yields 1/16” off each side. Couldn’t be easier. The second photo is of some boxes I made using the Oak Park router box joint jigs and the Whiteside brass set up bars. Once again, set up was a ...

Groz #4 Bench and Block plane kit

Groz #4 Bench and Block plane kit

08-20-2008 05:59 PM by dsb1829 | 23 comments »

I posted a lot of background over at my blog:Link A good user kit, but not for everyone. This is a good gateway kit into hand planes. Not as nice as the high end brands, but about 1/6th the price of them. They do require tuning. Don’t recommend them to your Uncle or a friend who doesn’t have mental capacity or tools to handle the tuning process (no offense to your Uncle).

Flapping in the Breeze

Flapping in the Breeze

08-18-2008 12:13 AM by closetguy | 7 comments »

I make and sell a lot of cutting boards. 50% or more of the time involved is sanding so I am always looking for ways to cut the sanding time down. It gets downright tiring sanding the round-over edges with a ROS, especially when I am finishing 10 boards at a time. I had heard about flap sanders, but didn’t know much about them. What amazed me when searching the Internet I found very few companies that make them. What I did find was the Grizzly G8749. I have used this for about thr...

my dust collector

my dust collector

08-17-2008 04:03 PM by woodnut | 10 comments »

Let me first say that this is the only dust collector that I have ever owned so I can’t make a comparision betweein this one and any other collector. Now for the review. From out of the box it took me about 3 hours to have it hanging on the wall. This sucker is heavy so you better have a friend or two to help with the lifting. After the installaton I was surprised at how strong this collector is. My shop is 20’x40’ and I can put my planner at the end of my shop and it has no...

"JUST ABOUT" isn't close enough any more.

08-15-2008 03:45 PM by SteveKorz | 26 comments »

I just bought this caliper. I had an old one that was not digital, it just had stamped lines and measurements. I’ve used it for years, and considered it priceless. But, here lately, I’ve been wanting to get a little more accurate. So, I bought this Wixey brand 6” Digital readout caliper with fractions. WOW! I was really surprised at the difference. What I thought was good in the past is now not acceptable. This caliper has helped me be a better woodworker in so many ...

For the money... not bad... but not great, either

For the money... not bad... but not great, either

08-14-2008 06:51 PM by ryno101 | 8 comments »

So let me start by saying that this is the first major tool purchase (in excess of $150) that I have made, and while overall I’m satisfied, there are enough problems to warrant a second thought for a first table saw. If I could have given 3 1/2 stars, I would have… but I’ll settle for 4, since it’s not quite a 3 star tool. I ended up getting this on Amazon, free shipping, with a promo including an outfeed roller, and the whole package was $299. For the money, th...

Drill Press Planer

Drill Press Planer

08-09-2008 04:08 PM by dmann | 11 comments »

As much as I’de love an excuse to get another piece of equipment for the shop I don’t use a planer enough to justify the expense or space. I saw this Drill Press Planer at the Woodworker’s Supply and figured for the price I would give it a shot. I was able to plane my first pieces of wood this week. I was preparing a section of a 3×3x9 block of maple to create a laminated bowl blank. The Planer worked well for my purposes. I secured the planer in the chuck and adj...
