my first apron - Thanks Marc!

my first apron - Thanks Marc!

31 days ago by rhybeka | 9 comments »

I’ve been looking for a while for a shop apron that met my criteria – had to have pockets for pencils, fit over my winter clothes, take abuse (since I seem to be hard on all of my clothes), and, well I guess this is where being female comes in, not be butt ugly. I’ve had my eye on TheWoodWhisperer's shop apron a while now, just haven’t been able to pony up for it. When I was able to a few weeks ago, I went to order it and saw it was out of stock. I emailed and asked...

A better saw than I thought it would be

A better saw than I thought it would be

I will not go over the safety side of the tool nor the politics as those have been beat to death. Well I’ve been lusting for a SS since they first came out, but being out of my budget started a savings fund. My Grizzly 1023SLX had served me well but I wanted to upgrade and really like the safety feature. With the last project providing a significant bump in my $$, I bit the bullet and ordered it back in early Feb. It supposed to be delivered on a Friday and it dumped a foot of snow. ...

Rob Cosman's Ruthlessly Propagated Plane Blade and Chipbreaker

Rob Cosman's Ruthlessly Propagated Plane Blade and Chipbreaker

36 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 9 comments »

Hey there everyone. I have been feeling bad lately because all I do is read reviews. I am going to try try to start writing more. So here it goes. I always wondered about the aftermarket plane blades and whether or not they made much of a difference. Well, I got a good old No.4 about 6 months ago and figured I would have a go with one of the 2” IBC Pinnacle blade and chipbreaker sets that Rob Cosman ruthlessly advertises. The blade and breaker showed up and little honing was re...

Forging A Custom Hinge with Peter Ross DVD from Popular Woodworking Blacksmith F+W Media

Forging A Custom Hinge with Peter Ross DVD from Popular Woodworking Blacksmith F+W Media

36 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 1 comment »

Mr. Ross’ style is perfect for me, calm, peaceful, he even makes hammering metal feel and sound good on video. He aptly demonstrates how to make a forged iron (might have been steel) hinge out of sheet metal, using basic hand tools, a heat forge and anvil, all of which I have already. My goals for buying this video were to learn the process and apply the concept to making hammered copper hinges for a project in the Charles Rohlfs style, which always had exceptionally made hammered- ...

Not as hard at it seems

Not as hard at it seems

I recently purchased the Leigh Super 18 Jig. I was waiting for a Porter-Cable 4216 Dovetail Jig, but after talking with one of the salesman decided to cancel the order and purchased the Leigh. I was drawn to the Leigh for the ability to center my half pins regardless of the with of my stock. When using the Porter-Cable jig widths must be multiples of 7/8” to assure a symmetrical pattern. Another aspect that helped sell me the Leigh Jig was the ability to do one pass half-blind doveta...

EZ Pro Dovetail Jig

EZ Pro Dovetail Jig

38 days ago by CalNinja | 1 comment »

I recently used this jig to do half blind dovetails for a shadowbox I was building. The jig came with a half inch dovetail bit with bearing, Allen wrench to set the depth gauge, the jig it self and instructions. The instructions were fairly easy to understand after you read it carefully. I decided to do half blind dovetails so it took me a couple practice pieces on scrap wood to get the fit just the way I want. Once I cut familiar with how the jig is oriented with the router for cutting ei...

A Good Value

A Good Value

38 days ago by Purrmaster | 16 comments »

This review is for the Diablo/Freud 10 inch, 40 tooth circular saw blade. Model number D1040X I got this at Home Depot for around $30 or so. My Freud blades needed sharpening and I needed to put something on my tablesaw. I was very pleasantly surprised by this blade. It rips almost as well as my Freud 30 tooth (thin kerf) ripping blade. It leaves a smooth finish when crosscutting. The blade stayed sharp as long as my Freud blades did. Which is unsurprising, considering it is actu...

Not sure whether or not I am supposed to say that something is on sale somewhere, but I thought it sounded like a good deal, and wondered how others found these chisels to be. Stanley Sweetheart Series 750 Chisels. I have a Woodriver set, and some ole Irwins now, but want to upgrade. Stanley Sweetheart Series 750 Chisels – $99 – 4 pc set, 1/4” – 1”, w/leather pouch
