  1. Bandsaw box

    A couple years ago my in-laws in Maryland had a very large Linden tree come down. When we were down there for Christmas I brought back a number of log sections and they've been sitting in my workshop ever since, waiting for me to come up with something to do with them. I finally decided to saw...
  2. Beaded Vase

    This vase is nine inches high and six at the widest diameter. A patina copper coating was applied over a textured lower surface. The beads were distressed and dyed. A glaze was utilized for additional enhancement. Thanks for looking and all comments are appreciated.

  4. Melt Down

    I just finished this last week. I used the notch in the front legs to hide pins that the doors swing off. To get them so close with out rubbing I cut a "V" cove so as the doors edge opens it goes in and out of the cove. So you don't see any hinges, I thought that would be cool =) The door and...

    Hi all, Hoping someone out there has an answer for me. Hours of Google searches have not yielded any results. I recently purchased a used Ryobi BS901. This will be my temporary bandsaw until I save up enough for a grown-ups bandsaw. (The BS901 is an older model 9" Bandsaw taking a 59 1/2"...

    Just read this tip and thought, "doh, why didn't I think of that?" I use an RSS reader for reading blogs, why not use it for looking for tools over time on Craigslist. http://frugalwoodworking.com/tool-shopping/craigslist-tool-hunting-tip/ I can see how it would be really useful for being the...

    I've been scouring my local craigslist to see what deals are to be had on a front-mount bench vise for woodwork. I would really rather buy used and restore if necessary, but I'm willing to buy new if none of these are up to par. Problem is, I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at (I've been...

    Hello, I am looking to buy my first jointer. I'm wired for 120v and do not have the space for and 8" jointer. I have been looking at a Grizzly 60813 - but shipped is about $700. Not sure I want to drop that much for my first (and it is out of stock). I'm going to be looking at a G1182...

    Here in Canada, one of the popular woodworking retailers is known as "Canadian Woodworker". They are independent retailers, though some of their inventory is branded 'Rockler'. In the month of January each year, they have a "Woodworker's Flea Market" where you can consign your surplus tools and...

    I'm interested in getting a shaper for the shop, but could use some advise from people that own them on what to look for, what is a fair price, etc. The shaper is a tool that doesn't have a lot of information on it to begin with, and the machines that are out on the used market all seem...

    Consider Buying Used Tools Buying used tools is an under-looked option for low-budget woodworkers. First of all, I should tell you that I work in a used tool store. So this issue is close to my heart because it is not only a hobby for me but also what brings home the bacon. Every day at work...

    Parts For Tools I just wanted to let everyone know, in case they don't already. At our Used Tool Store we sometimes need to make repairs on tools in order to resell them. When we need parts we go to Tool Parts Direct (toolpartsdirect.com) This is the best way that we have found to get parts...

    Used tools (from Craigslist, EBay, etc.) You ever see people leave posts on Craiglist for used tools that say in "good condition", etc. and the asking price is average, or above average? Some times they mis-identify the tool and label it what they think it is. Then you view the pic (if one is...

    Want to buy a fully stocked used tool store? This article appeared in the Portland (Maine) Press herald today. I've been to this tool store. It's about a hundred miles up the road from me. Tons of used tools and the guy is looking to pass it on to someone to carry on the tradition. The town...

    With all this stressing out over which type of table saw to buy, which brand, which deal….I just don't understand what the fuss is all about. I've owned perhaps five table saws over the 40-ish years of being a hobby woodworker. Yeah, they do tend to come and go. All came to me from yard sales...

    All within a one mile radius of the house today….Skipping over the rancid crap sales of rummage-sales refugees, I found some nice things for the workshop: So here's the list: Three "Esteel" Swedish bench chisels, Millers Falls scribe/punch, Millers Falls adjustable hacksaw with repaired...

    I've checked my local flea markets and done seemingly countless online searches, to no avail. I'm looking for two planes specifically but I would love to find a resource for future needs, as well. Looking for a No.5 Jack and a No.7 Jointer. Pre-WWII without the dentes in the frog face if...
