This is a serious jigsaw!

I just purchaced this saw from Amazon on my Prime membership because my wife wanted some arts and craft projects cut out. They were about 16” x 20” and are going to be painted to look like a Mason Jar. I used 5mm birch ply. I was able to cut two at a time and the saw didn’t even know it was cutting anything. However a 10mm thickness in a pretty tight inside radius was a little too much for the Bosch 20 tooth Xtra-clean blade. I turned it a nice blue oxide color. Oops. ...

Excellente moulder

Excellente moulder

05-12-2015 02:51 AM by Severiano | 2 comments »

2 months ago, i got my hands in this moulder. i had been looking at it for some time. I’ve looked at W&H and Hollytek moulders as well. it wasn’t untill the sales rep of Logosol Canada gave me a live show of this machine, that made me go for it. it is accurate and it is easy to figure it out ( Shaper user knowledge prerequisite ). i’ve bought mouldings in the past made with multi head big industrial machines, and I’m doing my own mouldings now with the same qualit...

Good value if you can put up with shoddy instructions

There are plenty of reviews of the G0656 8” 3HP jointer on here, but the reviews seem mixed, so I thought I would add another, since I find this site extremely useful. THE GOOD: - It works as advertised. It gets my stock smooth and flat on one side and nicely square. - Pretty easy to finely adjust the tables and fence.- Price can’t be beat for length of beds and quality of fence system- Dust chute seems well designed and picks up the majority of shavings- On/off switch is ...

Ash handrail cut with Yonico router bits

Ash handrail cut with Yonico router bits

05-10-2015 03:21 AM by exelectrician | 7 comments »

I wanted a solid handrail for my son-in-laws remodel but the big box stores only sell finger jointed handrail these days. This Yonico set was found on ebay brand new from Yonico. The project called for fourteen foot long handrails, I got a 10 quarter by 7” wide ash board and cut it into 3 pieces.I got 42 feet of handrail including the cost of the cutters for under 120$$ Very cost effective. Bottom line – Yes I would recommend this set to fellow LJ’s

I was looking for Titebond II Extend wood glue. Local stores don’t carry it. From Rockler.com it was 31.99 / gal + 7.99 shipping. Not so cheap at Amazon either. But, I found it on WalMart.com for $22.25 / gal with $5 shipping (no sales tax), sold by Zoro aka Zoro.com. Ordered Thursday 9:30AM, delivered the next day Friday 1:00pm for $27.25 total. I don’t know how they did that! Very well packed too. Jug was surrounded by foam-in-place packing which exactly embrace...

Wonderful Jig

Wonderful Jig

My first experience with Kreg was when I purchased the small R3 jig and I have to say I enjoyed it and it worked simply and efficiently so I decided to upgrade my model and purchased the K4…. It was a bigger cost jump and to be honest I think it’s over priced BUT after building a cedar deck cooler with it ….. It was worth every penny. I built a version of the Kreg storage box that they have plans to on there website and secured the jig to it and it works a treat…. ...

flattening a table top

flattening a table top

05-06-2015 05:57 AM by Andy Block | 9 comments »

A young friend of mine works in lumber sales and had been setting aside some nicely figured maple for me. When he delivered it I asked him what he and his new wife would like made for them. After consulting with a higher authority he said a coffee table, which was perfect as that was about as far as the wood would go. After doing the glue up I was having a tough time getting the table top flat as each board seemed to have developed a mind of it’s own. I went to visit a local tool...

Grizzly H7583 Tenoning Jig

Grizzly H7583 Tenoning Jig

04-30-2015 12:24 AM by Jagerheister | 25 comments »

A few day ago I purchased a Grizzly tenoning jig for an upcoming project on Amazon for $78.00 USD. I did quite a bit of research prior to pulling the trigger on the purchase, and I didn’t find many sources of video demonstrations or specific product info other than specifications and written instructions. I decided to do a video just to propagate and proliferate information on this product. I’ve provided a link below to a video review that I did of the unboxing, and assembly....

Fantastic quality, and great looks- but a big investment.

I recently got my hands on a pair of high end headphones. Since I listen to music and audiobooks in the workshop, and I know a lot of others here do too, I thought I’d give them a quick review… First off, they’re stunning. I mean, look at these suckers! That’s hand carved ebony, which immediately appeals to me as a woodworker. Wearing these around the shop just makes me look good! Each set has a different look, with its own unique grain pattern. They come in a high ...

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

04-29-2015 02:43 PM by DW833 | 8 comments »

I purchased this product at the Tampa woodworking show. The inventor was at the show and demoed the dust collection. I thought that the dust collection setup had a small footprint. I’ve tried other methods that just got in the way at the DP. The cost was $39. Included the quill for attaching to the DP, two housings and additional fittings to secure the quill. At the show, a second housing was provided with the purchase. I’m not sure if that is the case with every purchase...
