Wooden Boxes by Dennis Zongker

Wooden Boxes by Dennis Zongker

46 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 3 comments »

A nicely varied choice of boxes, with a thorough and detailed explanation of construction techniques and excellent presentation make this one of those best buys amongst books on the subject of boxmaking. Easy to follow and not in the slightest verbose. You could do worse than treat it as a reference book for the many useful techniques it describes. Pound for pound it is one of the most valuable books on box making in my collection. Well done sir.

Wonderbar, where have you been all my life?!?

Wonderbar, where have you been all my life?!?

46 days ago by 7Footer | 14 comments »

A few weeks ago a co-worker and I were talking about axes and he sent me a video on YouTube called An Axe to Grind, its a documentary by the Adirondack Woodsman all about axes – care, maintenance, hanging, etc. It’s an hour long and I watched about half of it the first time, its very informative and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn the basics about axes. Anyway, about 4 minutes in he starts cleaning his axe and something caught my eye, he has these things called...

NEW TABLE SAW AND ACCESSORIES

NEW TABLE SAW AND ACCESSORIES

47 days ago by Tomas Ferko | 6 comments »

So I just purchased my new Grizzly G0715P Hybrid and I absolutely love it. I sold my G1023 left tilt 3 HP. for the money I got this new table saw and lots of accessories. Incra miter gauge 1000 HD, PSI dust hood and collection from PSI woodworking products.Also made new out feed table and project note clipboard as you will see in the pictures. It’s great because you can bring your paperwork with cut list to the table saw and just work without moving away from the saw.The out feed ta...

Stanley Sweetheart 12-137 No. 62 Low angle Jack plane

Stanley Sweetheart 12-137 No. 62 Low angle Jack plane

47 days ago by Gerry | 16 comments »

Unbelievable! This is my first experience with a “reputed to be” a premium level wood plane. I am what one might call a “Hybrid” woodworker, and find myself using hand tools more and more. In using a very old Stanley No. 4 Smoother with my shooting board, even thought it works OK when well sharpened, I’ve not been entirely happy with the way it feels when cutting, nor with the results. Recently, Fine Woodworking put up a video about low angle bevel up jack planes by Garret Hack. H...

Solid DVD - review of table saw safety - Still watching the series

Solid DVD - review of table saw safety - Still watching the series

47 days ago by lightcs1776 | 11 comments »

I received this DVD set courtesy of Passion for Wood and Lumberjocks. I have completed the first DVD and most of the second one. There are several in the set, for a total of nearly 10 hours of instructions on table saw safety and use. Hendrik provides clear instruction on setting up the table saw, showing how to adjust the blade, the riving knife, safely cross cutting, etc. It is great for a beginner like myself. Hendrik speaks clearly and plainly, so he is easy to understand. You can w...

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

48 days ago by Donna Menke | 7 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FToA4gh6Ths&feature=youtu.beThis school recently opened not far from where I live. I attended one of their ‘Free Friday’ classes and both learned a lot and enjoyed myself. The teacher has lots of enthusiasm and knowledge; and since he was a school teacher, he knows how to teach.The environment is extra friendly and the equipment first rate. A lot of thought went into setting this place up, and they did all the work themselves.I was there when th...

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

48 days ago by Lsmart | 3 comments »

I bought this kits a few months ago and didn’t get time to make the body until recently. As usual with Veritas products I found the packaging to be minimal, which I like. All the parts felt well made right away and the blade was already very flat and sharp, a few minutes on the worksharp brought it up to a nice mirror finish. The instructions are detailed and clear and have a good tool and materials list at the beginning as well as warning you when any operation is crucial to be p...

Craftsman 4-1/8" Bench Top Jointer/Planer Set UP

Craftsman 4-1/8" Bench Top Jointer/Planer Set UP

50 days ago by ca8920 | 5 comments »

I have a garage shop and a limited amount of space. I needed a jointer/planer for some upcoming projects so I chose the Craftsman 4-18” Bench Top Jointer/Planer. Not the best tool out there but not the worst. The little jointer works well and does a decent job once set up and shimmed. My complaint, the setup. While researching this tool I found multiple comments/complaints that the fence is too far from the blades, causing a small protrusion of wood on the work piece when you r...

Very good DC at very affordable price

Very good DC at very affordable price

51 days ago by Jesse | 5 comments »

I have been running this dust collector for several months now and have had no issues. The suction is really good, I can have several ports open at one time with no problems. At under $700 it is the same price as the Powermatic 1.75HP machine but with more power and more capacity, I know because I own both machines. The Grizzly is 3HP and has a 7 inch inlet. I don’t like the 7 inch because it is tough to find all the piping for that size but after searching the home improvement stor...

Inexpensive great task light

Inexpensive great task light

51 days ago by EBpenguy | 7 comments »

I went to the recent Woodworking Show in Somerset, NJ and saw a really nice, goose necked LED task light at one of the booths. It was pretty slick, but almost $70 to buy. I had already overspent my budget and was not happy to pass on this! I told one of my woodturning buddies about it and he suggested I look instead at a similar light he had used from IKEA for $9.99. And I am glad I listened to him. IKEA sells this as the Jansjo desk lamp number 201.696.58 in black. It also comes in white...
