Shop Tips and Gadgets #1: Fresh Air Supply on the Cheap

Back in my boat building days I periodically had the need to spray some very toxic paints. A fresh air supply is highly recommended for these occasions but they are very expensive for infrequent use. I found this today as I was doing a deep...

A silk purse from a sow's ear... #1: Well for a start off, I'll say Hi and a little bit about this job...

Fellow woodworkers, I recognise some of you from the other place, just signed up here, so would like to say hello! I like the format here, especially since my laptop bit the dust and this works and looks really well on my phone. So after a...

My Roubo Bench Journey #2: Shavings O' Plenty

The wood came from the factory very wet, it is quarter sawn Doug Fir. So I let it dry out for several months before any processing. I dimensioned down the leg and stretcher beams using my Dewalt bench top planer. For the two top beams, I...

Can you really make money doing woodworking?

Can you really make money doing woodworking? Sure Can! Can you make a living doing woodworking? Yep, sure can. Is it easy to do? Nope, but it’s not as hard as most think. I like the attitude and direction that most members here on this...

First project, a sewing box #1: Getting started

For my first fine woodworking attempt, I’m building a sewing box for my wife. After all, it’s because of her that I even have a woodshop. I have always built things she wanted, like this gazebo: But then she started asking for things like...

Vintage Tools...Still the best choice #1: The table saw...

Probably the most important tool in the shop, next to yourself with a relaxing beverage, is the table saw. As most, I drool over the new Unisaw, then the sawstop, move over and eye up the new powercraft. The main thing is , no matter what quality...
