  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi everyone. First time poster and new to woodworking. My wife and I recently decided to build a house. Since making the decisions we've learned that we have to install our own yard fence and ultimately the cost to finish the basement was more than we were comfortable with. A friend suggested...
  2. Hand Tools
    Saw this posted on the Denver area Craigslist. Too much for me, but maybe some of you hand tool collectors might find this interesting - many planes, old saws etc. http://denver.craigslist.org/tls/2654781678.html Tom

    Hello everyone! I"ve referred to this forum for a while now, but this is my first post! I'm currently in the market for a new table saw and came across this Dayton 10 inch model. The odd thing is, I cannot find any information on it throughout the web. No reviews, articles, videos etc. Nothin...

    Better Scraper Tuning Just responded to a post with the following, but thought I'd add it to my blog too: I finally got great results out of my scrapers - for fine work… Even though I was honing up to 6000 (waterstones) on the sides and edges of my scrapers, I was burnishing with a HSS round...

    HUGE Eucalyptus score Sheesh. Good thing I have a truck now. I saw a note on craigslist today (online classifieds) that a guy had put "10 to 15 more" eucalyptus logs out in the alleyway behind his house. LA is all blocks split in half by access alleys big enough to drive 2 cars through...

    Nice Kit! The ever popular Joel over at Tools for Working Wood (also Grammery Tool), whom I also got my excellent Holdfasts from, has produced a nice bowsaw kit. I've been interested in picking up a tool like this for a while, as I'm inherently lazy, and I don't like to take the resaw blade...

    Know your wood #1-Cherry Most people only talk about grain at the most superficial level of how it looks. We woodworkers enter the fibres. We tease the cells apart with the chisel's edge and search for weaknesses and strengths in the species. We want to know these intimate details so we can...

    New? Used? You decide. Have you ever gotten the feeling that if only you'd known more at the start of something, you'd have saved yourself a whole lot of time, effort, and money? Maybe it's just the learning process, but there are a few things I wish I'd known ahead of time before I began...

    Designing the Till As my hand-tool usage has grown, I have gradually expanded my collection of saws. I started with three (rip, crosscut, and back) and over time I've added other restored specialty saws until I have no place to put them all. At that point I realized I had to build a saw till...

    Saw Handle Remodelling. AKA, The 'Brit' Method. Hi folks I recently acquired a cheap 14" Brass Backed Tenon Saw off eBay. A non descript saw marked Thos. Bloor, Leicester. The handle was comfortable enough, but I thought why not do a 'Brit job' on it? So out came the thick black permanent...

    And then there were two. I decided to dedicate my time this winter to restoring various saws I've acquired over the past year. I'll be restoring half-rip saws, panel saws, tenon saws, carcass saws and dovetail saws from a variety of makers, dating from the 1840s up to the 1960s. Now don't worry...

    Old Rusty 8PPI crosscut saw Picked this one up at a yard sale for $2 this past summer. I thought for $2 it would be good for getting use to using and sharpen hand tools again, and get away from all the noise of my power tools. I thought if I mess it up it is only $2. For me it is just not fun...

    Aches, pains and pallet wood, oh my! Following its recent successful creation, I opted to give Franken-Rack free rein to terrorize the domain. It was my hope that it would bring home the finest lumber in all the land. Instead, it brought me pallet and crate wood. Several times I have berated...
