    I had a similar transitional some time ago, although a Jack as opposed to a Jointer. It was a very smooth operator and worked quite well.

    I guess I'd rather they offer a decent set of thin blade Cranked Neck Paring Chisels instead. Only Narex seems to make those now and they're too short and too thick.

    Keeping it simple

    My summer schedule doesn’t permit lots of shop time but I like to keep something in the works. I ran across a couple videos on Rustic Japanese Tool Boxes and figured it would be a good project to...

    These look great. The missus and I keep a basket between our TV chairs that serves much the same role. Perhaps I need to up my game? She'd be tickled to death with the Kleenex feature.

    I had no idea what to expect but I was pleased with the results. I tend to shy away from Red Oak because I don't usually care for the look when stained. This looks very warm and organic.

    Another fuming success

    Those that know me know I have a fondness for arts and crafts furniture and work almost exclusively in QSWO. I'd seen some examples of rustic Japanese toolboxes and figured I should make one. I had...

    Walnut would make a nice looking top, but if the bar sees much action it will get pretty beat up in a real hurry. If I was building a bar I'd save the Walnut for a different project and use a...

    I'd dip in a thinned Danish oil and let it soak a while. Wipe off the excess after a couple hours and call it a day.

    New Rikon Bandsaw - An Adventure

    I finally invested in a band saw for my modest basement shop. I planned on a 14" Powermatic but walked out with a Rikon 10-326. It had double the resaw capacity, more HP, and tool free blade guide...

    Who makes a good bandsaw blade?

    Who's the "go to" for resaw blades? The 3/4 blade that came on my new Rikon leaves much to be desired. It cuts OK but is really loud. I think it took a set in shipping. The weld is pretty bad too. It...
