Although it just plain baffles some woodworkers, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be surprised at what you can do, even on a small bandsaw. Here’s what you need to make it all happen: blade selection, shop-made jigs, setup and cutting tips. Why Resaw? One big reason: money. If you want thin stock for small boxes or drawers, it’s a lot cheaper to make your own than to buy it. Some wood dealers actually make thin stock by planing down 4/4 material, so it ends up being more expensive to buy less wood!
Honestly, I’ve tuned so many dang metal planes in my lifetime that I’ll never worry about having enough iron in my diet. They might mine my carcass for the mineral when I’m dead. For me, it has always been an analog process: Do it by hand with inexpensive supplies. Today I spent the day tuning … Read more I first heard about Colen Clenton’s tools from Joel Moskowitz of Tools for Working Wood in Brooklyn, N.Y.
I recently received an email telling me that I had promised to do a little tutorial on flattening the backs of tools. I confess that I had forgotten that. But today I made up for it. Lets start by looking at what is required.

You can of course simply swallow it and buy a new Blade or you can do a more sensible thing and repair it, which is not as difficult as you might think and once you have mastered the Technique you can of course save money in the future by purchasing a Bulk Roll of Bandsaw Blade and make your own Blades. The method I describe here is for a Brazed Joint using Silver Solder and providing simple rules are followed you will achieve a strong durable joint for use with any type of Wood.

Born in the mind of Joseph F. Emmert in the 1880's, the Emmert patternmaker's vise has become world renowned. Patternmakers, woodworkers and machinists would agree that this Emmert invention is the most versatile work holding device available. The Emmert patternmakers vise has the unique ability to not only hold the work piece but to change positions without releasing it. You merely release a handle and rotate the vise and the work piece. Adjust another handle and flip the work piece onto the bench top still being held by your Emmert.
Over the last week, I have received this question three or four times. Clearly, people are torn up about building vs buying their workbench. I am certainly no authority on workbenches, but I like to think I bring a little common sense to an area polluted by romantic notions of tradition. So let’s dig in. In my woodworking career, I’ve constructed exactly two workebenches. My first one was what I called my “Home Depot Special”.
The crates for the April 5-6 Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event arrived yesterday (thank you, kind neighbor, for your forklift help); it’s tempting to open them and dig into the bronze, wood and steel goodness inside. The free event is next Friday (10 a.m.-6 p.m.) and Saturday (10 a.m.-5 p.m.) in our office and shop, 8469 … Read more Baileigh Industrial, a company founded in 1999 and better known in the metalworking industry, has entered the woodworking market with a lineup of machinery that straddles the line between larger commercial equipment and goods for the serious home craftsman.

One key step is the chopping away of waste wood between the saw kerfs. Typically, this is accomplished with a sharp chisel and skilled hands, but there are tricks to increasing your accuracy.
