A Great Finish for Furniture Projects

A Great Finish for Furniture Projects

01-08-2018 10:29 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 9 comments »

I have been using this finish now for a few months and have really found it to be a great finish for furniture projects. Especially, if they are going to be subject to water. I started out putting it on a bathroom vanity top made of cypress. Beautiful color and depth was achieved with multiple coats and sanding between coats with 400 grit. Final coats we wet sanded. I next used it on an antique table restoration and couldn’t have been more pleased as well as my client. Finally,...

Bauer Model 1791C-B1 20V vs. Rigid Gen X Brushless 18V Model R86009

Bauer Model 1791C-B1 20V vs. Rigid Gen X Brushless 18V Model R86009

01-07-2018 08:58 PM by Tennessee | 12 comments »

My Rigid R82009 drills, (shown in the second picture) which the date code tells me that these were made in the 15th week of 2011, are starting to lose their battery life. I know, I should have registered them, but if I even did, (can’t remember), to find that paperwork to cash in on very expensive batteries would be somewhat of a miracle. Can you find a receipt from six years ago? Well, good for you…I cannot.In any case, I was tiring a bit of the power of these, and even though ...

Wake up and see the light and up close too

Wake up and see the light and up close too

01-07-2018 06:11 PM by a1Jim | 21 comments »

Hi friendsI ordered these Head Mount Magnifier with LED Head Light a couple months ago since I planned on starting an online carving class I thought it would help see the details of smaller carvings and I found they work great, for a 70-year-old guy I have pretty good vision I’m even able to read small print on medication bottles etc,but I found these somewhat funny looking glasses to not only magnifies (5 different strength lenses) very well but it adds a lot of light right were your ...

Best Option I've Found

Best Option I've Found

01-07-2018 01:41 PM by EarlS | 18 comments »

I read an article written by a hand surgeon for Popular Woodworking. “In the hundreds of table saw injuries I’ve seen, I’ve yet to see an amputation from a table saw with an appropriate blade guard and splitter. There have never been many good reasons to remove the guard; now with better-designed saws, guards and riving knives, there are even fewer. I’ve seen woodworkers injured on the “backstroke” as they bring a hand back over an unprotected blade after a cut, those who didn’t see ...

Great beginner woodturning chisels (carbide)

Great beginner woodturning chisels (carbide)

01-06-2018 07:53 PM by Blake Haskins | 2 comments »

This Psi carbide turning tool kit is great for beginners.While I believe that Is generally true for carbide tools in general, this one can be especially appealing thanks to the entry level price. Carbide tools in general seem more approachable to beginners thanks to their simplicity, and their not needing sharpening. To see them in action, check out my quick review video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9g1-cHm7BM

Timbery Sawmill M100 Electric

Timbery Sawmill M100 Electric

12-30-2017 09:06 PM by Rebarn | 9 comments »

We have had our Timbery M100 Electric Sawmill for 5 years now. We have run this machine with a lot of respect…and not really “hard” by comparison to full time sawyers. But we have put this saw to work to make money in our shop and it has performed well for our needs of resawing large beams into lumber and mantels. It’s an electric mill, which is exactly what I needed for our shop. It has a 5HP electric motor. We have an 18 foot bed on the saw. The housing for t...

Laguna - Great Product!

Laguna - Great Product!

We have had our Laguna bandsaw for about two years now. We use it mostly for resawing medium to small stock. We use the Resaw King carbide tip blade. All I can say is that this is a great saw and the Resaw King blade is remarkable!

Great Jig for a Reasonable Price

Great Jig for a Reasonable Price

12-30-2017 03:00 AM by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

As I was starting my Home Office project, I decided to use the European styled hinges, rather than the more common hinges I typically use. I have not had much luck with these hinges, so based on research decided to purchase some jigs to make my installations more repeatable. I reviewed many different jigs, and through the shopping process, ran into the Kreg. I have always been happy with Kreg products in the past, and with a MSRP of only $29.99 USD, it did not seem like too much of a gambl...

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

12-29-2017 02:10 AM by Walker | 6 comments »

I’m writing this review because there doesn’t seem to be very much information around on the Striplox woodworking products. I stumbled upon these connectors while designing a future project. I wanted a modern look with completely hidden joints. It appears they are a fairly new product. To my delight they were available at my local Woodcraft store and are relatively cheap, so I purchased a pack to play around with. The clerk was actually surprised they had them and wasn’...

Drill Press Compound Vise

Drill Press Compound Vise

12-28-2017 05:52 PM by John Smith | 4 comments »

I don’t normally review tools as there are so many and every person has different expectations of the product, based on their use. I purchased this “entry level” Shop Fox drill press vise a few months ago off of E-Bay.several vendors sell basically the same thing, all come from China or other Asian country.once I got all the grease out of it and got it dialed in, it is very simple to operate.you may have to redrill the bolt pattern to fit your table. all in all, this is ...
