    Made a Lacewood Shelf with my Daughter

    Woodworking and spending time with your daughter. Very cool dad right there! Nice shelf too. You may have started a lifelong passion in her as well.

    Jorgensen EZ hold 12 inch clamps on clearance

    I hope they are not going to stop selling the Jorgensen brand. I like them. They just started selling this brand in my store not to terribly long ago. They seem to be better than the Irwin clamps, to me anyways.

    Hand plane restoration

    Chris, That is very generous of you and yes I'd love to have it. Wonder if anyone could ponyexpress my way? Only thing is I'm leaving Sunday for John C. Campbell for a carving class and that is in the opposite direction. When I return I will get back with you and see what I can do about picking...

    Hand plane restoration

    Thanks for all the input. I think I will remove the mushroomed portion as suggested by many of you first and see how I like it. I am new to hand tools and don’t have much to compare it to so it will probably be fine for now. Any of you have old vintage hand planes that you thought you were...

    Hand plane restoration

    Do you guys think I should replace the blade? The back end of it appears to have been peened over. The side shifting lever hits it and makes that hit the handle. What blade do you recommend I replace it with?

    Hand plane restoration

    I just finished restoring my first hand plane. It’s a Stanley Bailey 5 1/4 hand plane with April 1910 date. Man that was cool to do. Loved the whole process and finally watching it take thin shavings. Ready for my next one. Lol

    Is this a good lathe? Rikon 70-220VSR

    I've owned mine since January 2016. I can tell you from my experience that this is a great beginner lathe for small turnings under 12" in diameter. Rikon had some issues in the beginning with the control boards on these lathes and they were very quick about getting me the part I needed to fix it...

    According to my wife ...

    Looks eerily similar to my table saw injury. Cut my pointer finger and thumb down to the bone as well. Actually cut the tip of the bone in my thumb. Took some time to heal and now I have no sensation at the tips of either digit. Hope you heal fast and without much trouble.

    Impressive but unsafe Russian woodturner video.

    I've seen another video somewhere with a turner using a similar homemade looking skew chisel. He is definitely skilled with it. And that hooked tool, looks like one the pole lathe turners use. Cool video! Thanks for sharing.

    Anyone build this vise or one similar?

    I want to add a moxon style type of vise to my workbench to securing wood for cutting dovetails or hand planing stock. I don't really have the funds to buy the expensive benchcrafted moxon vise kit so turned to youtube. :) Jay Bates has several different versions of his bar clamp twin screw...

    Deal or No Deal on Bowl Lathe?

    Hmmm. I'm not sure about that lathe. Looks like it only has a few speeds with the step pulleys. I'd want to know how slow it would go so I could mount a large bowl blank and not have it walk all over the shop. It looks pretty light weight as well. For $900, I'd pass and wait on a used powermatic...
