Chris   August 15, 2012   1   0  
When you are working with exotic woods it is not always easy to find matching dowel stock. You might be able to find something from a specialty store online, but if you are in a hurry, good luck finding it at your local store. The best way to find dowel stock to match your project is to make your own
Square Punch Demonstration by Darrell Peart
Chris   April 13, 2010   1   0  
Actually I am only telling you a half truth. The latest bits from Lee Valley will give you a square hole and does use a drill, but there is more to the story. This new tool is actually a fancy square hole punch that uses a drill bit to remove most of the wood material. For those of you wondering, yes, it functions almost exactly the same way as an electric mortise machine.

Homemade (Router Jig) - Etch A Sketch Style!
Chris   May 07, 2014   1   0  
If you loved the Etch-A-Sketch as a child and find yourself missing it as adult, then you will like what one guy built in his workshop. With only a few dollars worth of parts and a router, YouTube's Izzy Swan made the grown-up version of the classic child's toy. But instead of drawing with aluminum powder, his version carves into wood with a router. Like the classic Etch-A-Sketch, it takes great skills to draw something that actually looks like something—so I will not be making one of these.

Chris   April 10, 2013   0   2  
If you are really into woodworking you might be willing to spend 3 days salary on a really good block plane, but most of us probably won't. We will spend enough to get an OK plane and complain about the cut quality later. LeeValley has a simple way to improve your plane, and that is to use one of their replacement plane blades.
