Vise choice stumping you ? Have a small shop ? DIY Moxon vice

10-20-2020 09:29 PM by OldBull | 1 comment »

There is a lot of noise when searching woodworking topics. Everything I have purchased or built for my shop so far has cost me time and effort. Some were especially difficult because of the opposing opinions on the internet. The noise can be loud and polar opposite opinions split 50/50. The latest cause for strained eyes has been which bandsaw, which boils down to bearings or ceramics. But I did find an incredibly good answer to which vise I could get that fit my needs, diverse, function...

Design v1: Walled Sides - Feedback welcome (weight bearing, cross bracing, design)

02-07-2011 10:24 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I’m awaiting a benchtop milling machine which weighs about 500lbs, and with the expense of the machine + additional tooling that would probably follow (vises, cutters, tool holders, etc) I wanted to be able to minimize the expense on the stand. most stands are in the 150-400 range (including shipping and such), which would be better used for other things.

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #8: Tuesdays With Mark Decou

08-28-2007 10:38 AM by Douglas Bordner | 14 comments »

This week’s visit is to the shop of Mark Decou in the scenic Flint Hills of Kansas. I grew up in Kansas, and fished and hunted on “the old home place” not far from Mark’s neck of the woods. Big sky, broad vistas, rolling prairie hills with flint and limestone outcrops, farmsteads with Osage Orange hedgerows and babbling creeks. Plenty of serene space to contemplate the meaning of one’s existence. And contemplative is a natural adjective for Mark. He has done m...

Commissioned Church Side Altars Complete!

05-09-2007 03:31 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 25 comments »

I am so excited this morning. Why you ask? I’m complete with the St. Anthony Church Side Altar commission project. I have more work to do on other pieces for the church by the end of the month. So, there isn’t much time to take a breath yet, but the completion of the Side Altars is a huge milestone for me, and my woodworking career. To be honest, there were some times that I wondered if I would ever get all of the details of these Altars complete. Total working time is a...
