Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD  By Steve Latta

Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD By Steve Latta

I was really not going to buy the Tool kit but when it included the DVD by Steve Latta who actually was the one responsible for the development design with lie-Nielsen I decided to pull the trigger and invest in the kit. For me the DVD was worth the entire cost of the kit and the tools were the added bonus Steve spoke slow enough to leave time to grasp the topic and made each step clear. When explaining a new term he was easy to understand. Each section flowed seamlessly to the next and was l...

Performax 22-44 Plus Drum Sander (Part Two Nitty gritty)

Performax 22-44 Plus Drum Sander (Part Two Nitty gritty)

I will wrap this review up by saying I am 99.9% happy with this machine I will say the belts are a little hard to change until you get the hang of it. The machine came with 80 grit paper but I already have a planer so after testing it I took it off. I replaced it with 100 grit and that was OK for removing planer marks so I left my dimensions around 3/32+ over size. My first attempt at changing the paper was what I expected, I did not get it tight enough at the right angle or it was skewed in ...

A big box was delivered today I don’t remember the last time I was this excited; it was a very big box at that.I have to say it was packed very well so I started by doing an inventory of all the parts and to my surprise everything was there, in tact, and well documented. Did I say it was packed very well?Here are the assembly steps right out of the manual with out all the stuff that you say “what the heck are they trying to say” ??? and a few things that I found that could cause a...

Starting an Outdoor Furniture Manufacturing Business

Starting an Outdoor Furniture Manufacturing Business

For as long as I can remember there have discussions here at Lumber Jocks about doing woodworking as a business or getting paid for the master pieces that come out of our shops. I know everyone that has enjoyed wood working or any other creative outlet has said to them self “How can I do this and make a living at it”? Well I ask the same question every time I am in the shop. I found what I consider about the most straight up and to the point, down and dirty “Here is how it’s done, but it’s no...

Video> Finally I am getting to do some spray painting I spent hours watching videos and worrying about lord knows what… So armed with 3 spray guns my mask on my face and dressed up like a bio-tech sci-fi movie character I was ready to lay my first covering and I have to say I was as nervous as a school girl (What ever that means) The first gun I tried was the touch up gun with the 1.0 mm tip right out of the box which is really to small for the paint which was latex and required a 1.5mm ti...

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books – So how useful is the set of DVD’s going to be? “Very much I hope” My finishing skills leave a lot to be desired – A REAL LOT so much in fact that if you see most of my projects on LJ they are all hand applied and natural finishes with no stains or dyes. The price of this DVD set was about $120.00. The first one bought was got and watched was not impressive it was very limited in content and Charles and Bob spent too much time just talking with...
