Curiosity made me do it #2: Used Power Tool pricing (AKA Is this tool a good deal?)

05-24-2019 12:43 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

There are hundreds of threads with folks asking about used tool pricing. Getting tired of posting same information over and over in threads, so decided to list all here:What is Great price on used tool?What is Good price on used tool?What is Fair price on a used tool? All these are hard to answer. Let’s discuss some areas that impact tool pricing. Condition:Condition is important. Every tool is unique in the use/abuse, maintenance, and/or refurbishment; that defines the cond...

It’s not exciting, but it’s a step in the project. All lumber milled to .6”. Will allow to rest a few days and then finish planing it to .5”.

It's just an old rusty plane

05-08-2019 01:58 PM by Nor_Cal_Noobie | 2 comments »

Hey you guys. Sure you noticed I’m New, just wanted to show my plane score.It was in an old thrift shop with a capewell bench plane next to it. The rust hid these poor beings under the dust. I had to rescue them both up. I managed to get them with a slew of random other items for $30. You see, the only planes I have are a grocery store Stanley block plane, and a slightly larger wooden plane I made because I wanted one.Not to keep you waiting, here are some photos from this project

Shop stuff #155: Part 11 of the Roubo bench build

04-14-2019 11:24 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I tackle the short stretcher in this on. A lot of work but they came out very nice. It may be called soft maple, but it is not at all soft. Spring being here brings some other chores, so wood work and shop time has slowed down. Although I can’t see how it is slower than the winter was. Maybe I’m just slow…lol. Anyway, I really enjoyed this process and the results from it. View on YouTube

Curiosity made me do it #1: Grizzly Paint Colors

03-25-2019 02:00 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

Was curious if I could find a Grizzly touch up paint color that would match a Geetech jointer I own. Since OWWm.org site does catalog information on non-US made wood working tools, touch up colors can be hard to find for off brand, now antique Taiwan made wood working tools. Ended up digging out this paint color summary in Grizzly parts catalog that I thought might be nice to share: Grizzly PPAINT-1 – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023SGrizzly PPAINT-1A – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023S AE...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #1: The Chassis

03-25-2019 12:09 AM by Jason1974 | 18 comments »

Gents, so I decided to start another project. I had a huge chuck of cherry on my wood carts so I decided to mill it down and make something with it. Haven’t decided what other woods to use but I think I’m going to make the wheels out of walnut for the tyres and maple for the rims. I also have a small chunk of bloodwood I would like to incorporate into the build. Maybe I’ll use it for the seats. ............. Thanks for watching!!!.

Making a wooden toolbox from reclaimed wood.

I just finished a toolchest from reclaimed wood! The wood was a mix of red and white oak from dunnage and skids that I’ve gathered over the years. Check out the build video … https://youtu.be/ZWUnaLLUfNg

Figured Black Limba running through the planer - shop tour wood processing

02-10-2019 12:41 AM by Steve | 3 comments »

View on YouTube I took a short video clip of a new run of 8/4 African Black Limba running though “Old Ironsides” (my nickname for the vintage Newman Whitney industrial planer in the clip – it’s a behemoth but a workhorse). Bringing in Black Limba is a roll of the dice because there is “no standard for ””Black” or “White color”. In other words, if bad colors show up, there’s often little recourse because it’s subjecti...

Alaska Cabin #2: Diamond Willow & Agate Cabin Kitchen Lights

02-06-2019 01:33 AM by Matt Snyder | 2 comments »

After my diamond willow and agate bed lights turned out so good I decided to do something similar in my “kitchen”. Running across the front wall of the kitchen is an electrical conduit tube that looks ugly and I wanted to hide it behind some diamond willow while adding some LED lighting. I looked through the pile of wood I harvested in the spring and found a strait enough piece that had some character and was big enough to cover everything up. To make it fit flush to the wall, I...
