One of my favorite planes!!!!

1679 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 12 comments »

Well i wonder if you guys can guess what i got for Christmas!!! :) I’ve got a few planes, you know the regular an old stanley some Veritas Bevel up planes, and a Lie-Nielsen block plane but out of them all this has got to be one of my favorites!!!!!! First off you would be surprised how much a rabbeting block plane would come in handy. I don’t have a shoulder plane but even if i did i couldn’t see liking it more than this. I can get a full 1 3/4” width of cut which ...

I love this blade!

I love this blade!

1865 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

In my shop i like things to match. bookmatched especially. and one of my favorite things in the world is projects from all one slab of wood. so naturally i do ALOT a resawing. so for that i need a good resaw blade. This blade really fulfills my need too! I have a 14” bandsaw with the riser block so for resawing i got for the 105” 3 tpi by 3/4” blade. these blades have hook teeth which is very aggressive but also leaves a pretty nice finish. not glue ready by any means but go...

wow! don't know how i got along without this

i got this digital protractor for christmas and since i got it i have used it for everything! to adjust my squares, set up tools, check glue ups! it is just a great little tool. so much for burning on the table saw for crosscuts. i found that my good square was 89.9 and thats why i was getting burning. once adjusting it to 90 with the wixey no burning at all! its just wonderful and it helps a lot too. also there are magnets on it that help in tool setup because it attracts to the blade and mi...

All i have to say is WOW!! these are my first LN products and they are amazing i got them for christmas and i love them. with the old ones that i had i would sit there for about 5 minutes just burnishing the heck out of them but i could never get anything more than dust. i opened these up today and took them downstairs to the shop. after a light burnishing for about 1 minute i was getting shavings! Thats right SHAVINGS! i can’t wait until i have some time to properly hone and really giv...

a great little kit for anyone

a great little kit for anyone

2045 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

this is the woodcraft wooden fishing lure kit. i just got the basic one to start off with but woodcraft has plenty of other kits for plenty of other styles of lures. they are really nice because if you have a lathe they are really easy to make or to make with someone like a kid. also if you’re good enough you can hand carve the whole thing. thats a little bit harder than turning them. the kit comes with all the hardware as well of instructions on making them. the picture below is just a...

 great little workhorse for the money

great little workhorse for the money

2045 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 6 comments »

I got this planer a few months ago and since i got it i have been giving it a lot of work. i have probably run close to 200 bf through this planer and i am still on my first set of knives. which is good considering some of the woods i’ve put through it including hickory which is a demon to any blade. its is a nice little powerhouse though. it works wonderfully and has the power to take the full 1/16” off of any board with ease. it is very heavy duty too. i have stood on it before ...

Very, Very nice beginner lathe

Very, Very nice beginner lathe

2046 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

i have had my Jet mini lathe for about 5 months now and it is a solid performer. there is a lot to consider when looking at lather so this will be a pretty long review but worth it. Power Power is a big thing when looking into a lathe. this lathe is 1/2 hp which is underpowered. this lathe does do quite well though. i find that i can stall it up up usually i am good. the only times that i have been able to stall it up is when roughing out very large out of true logs. other than that it ...
