Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #109: Using Drill Press Clamps in Workbench Dog Holes

02-26-2020 01:02 PM by retired_guru | 9 comments »

A while ago I was at a Harbor Freight store picking up some 6” F-clamps when I came across their Pittsburgh 9” Drill Press Locking Clamps. An idea came to mind, so I picked up two at the price of $8.99 each. Sure enough, when I got home and tried them out in the dog holes on my Harbor Freight Windsor workbench, they fit perfectly. I’ve recently drilled out the dog holes to the standard 3/4” size, and they still work just as well. Obviously, the threaded ends aren...

Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... #16: When a "fence" doesn’t pay up…

01-31-2020 01:39 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 2 comments »

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…. To be fair to any product(s) mentioned, this is not a review per-se, but my impression, be it through bad judgement, misuse or just too much cheap vino. I have seen this gadget, in many videos and a few cameo appearances in pictures, however, I hav...

Wish List for Woodworking Gifts?

11-27-2019 11:19 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 3 comments »

I reached out to some YouTube subscribers and asked if they are interested in a gift guide. 4 of the 5 responses were yes, they would like a video. I put this together mostly on what I use in my workshop, but also one BIG item on my wish list. What’s on your wish list this year? Any tool purchase regrets in 2019? Here’s the video if you’re interested –

Shop stuff #171: Simon and Patrick folk guitar set up and adjustment.

09-22-2019 06:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Simon and Patrick guitars hold their own against other guitars costing twice as much. This one belongs to a person just starting out and learning. It needed some minor tweaks so it’s easy to play and does not discourage someone at the beginning of a hobby that is quite satisfying. View on YouTube

Cutlist Software

08-19-2019 06:08 AM by Rich | 5 comments »

Foreword: I’ve only been using this app for a couple of weeks. I expect to learn more as I go and will update this blog entry as I do. I thought about making this a review, but it’s really more a journal of my time looking for good apps to do cutlist layouts. I’m not talking about simply a list of the pieces that make up a project, I wanted to find a good app for doing the layout of those pieces, given the lumber I have available. I worked with several tools, both IO...

Shop stuff #168: 1910 Disston rip saw

08-09-2019 02:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 10 comments »

Sometimes you just get lucky. I found this one at a yard sale and was unsure of it’s date of manufacture, but I find out over the course of bringing it back to usable condition. This beauty was in pretty good shape for its age and now it can get back to doing what it was meant to do for another long while. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #165: The final Roubo video

07-07-2019 12:22 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Putting the final touches on the Roubo bench and getting it all buttoned up. Wow, what a journey and a learning experience. I love my new bench. There will be some accessories to make for it in the future, but for right now, it is a fully functional Roubo. It came out very close to the original picture I had in my head. That was my plan, and I just kept making parts to suit that idea. View on YouTube

Bill Kappel starting Maloof style rocking chair class #3: murkiness exposed about the Maloof rocker

06-03-2019 02:51 PM by bkap | 3 comments »

Some murkiness exposed about the construction of the Maloof style rocker by Bill Kappel Murkiness would be an operative word because a good deal of construction detail is not clearly stated or reviled about this style rocker. Even Sam Maloof did not give full details for some of the fowling; seat creation, leg joints, leg shaping, arm attachment, back-slat mounting, headrest and runners.I have placed an where new information has been inserted. I had an operation a short while back and du...

Latest Q&A about the Mandocello build.

05-14-2019 10:43 PM by Tomy Hovington | 3 comments »

Since the early stages of building the Mandocello I have been adding Video Q&A to my YouTube Channel to allow the questions and answers to reach more people. At that point in time, My webpage was still far from it’s make over and this Blog was not in the back of my mind yet. But since there is a lot of information share in response to those great questions asked by the same people following this build, I thought this will fit right in with the tip and tricks Blog post. Some of the t...

EGO 14 Inch Chainsaw

05-02-2019 09:21 PM by Not Here | 3 comments »

It’s not woodworking, but I have to say that I am super impressed with the power of my EGO 14 inch chainsaw. I highly recommend this for a typical yard use chainsaw. I did a review on it here: I have other videos that you may like as well.
