Power Tools

My new miter saw. I love this saw. Don't forget to watch my review of this tool in my videos section.

A great planer. My only complaint is that the knives seat on indexing pins on the cutter head which makes sharpening difficult. Otherwise a great planer.

I have owned this jointer for well over ten years and love it.

This is the router that I use in my router table. Very powerful (3.25 hp) and reliable.

I love this little router. This is the router that I use when flushing edge banding on plywood edges.

This plunge router is a recent acquisition for me. So far I have no complaints. Smooth plunge capability and comes with half inch and quarter inch collets.
 

This sander is a huge improvement over my older Bosch sander (ROS). This one has significantly less vibration and is quieter.

Power Tool Accessories

The best tapering jig that I've ever used. Better than my DIY version.

I use this at the lathe for turning the underside of bowls.

I use this to hold drill bits at the lathe.

A great chuck for the lathe for turning bowls

My favorite miter gauge. I first saw this used by Norm Abram of The New Yankee Workshop when I first started woodworking. I later bought one.

I use this for making tight fitting dados and as a stop when making tenons at the table saw.
 

This is a 1" diameter post for holding my S shaped tool rest. Fits nicely in my lathe and easily threads onto the S shaped tool rest.

So far, I've used this on one bowl and it worked nicely. I like that it has two diameter curves for different sized bowls.

This is a great tool for drilling in tight spots with limited space. You can buy drill bits that it will accept. I also use this to counter sink screw holes in tight spots.

I will occassionally use dowel centers in my woodworking. They are used to line up the position of the holes for dowel joinery.

Hand Tools

This kit is great for making 1" threads for both the male and female ends. I use it mostly for jigs. I also made a nutcracker using this. See videos section.

This kit is great for making 1/2" threads for both the male and female ends. I use it mostly for jigs.

I use this flushtrim saw to flush plugs to the surface.

I recently got my hands on this set of chisels and love them. The steel is harder than my old set, but adding a micro bevel was a piece of cake with my waterstoenes. Because the steel is on the hard-side of the spectrum, they hold an edge nicely!

Saw Blades

I LOVE this stack dado set. It is adjustable and does not require shims.

Creates a very clean cut. This blade lives in my table saw 99% of the time.

Clamps

A great light duty clamp. I use these at the table saw to hold work onto jigs and to hold work together while pre-drilling.

These dovetail clamps are worth their weight in gold. A great clamp for making your own jigs.

I use these clamps all the time. I like using them to clamp mitered boxes together. They are sometimes called band clamps.

I use this toggle clamp in a lot of my shop-made jigs.

Sharpening Accessories

I currently only use Norton waterstones. 1000 grit is where I start if a lot of metal needs to be removed.

I currently only use Norton waterstones. 4000 grit is a great intermediate grit before final polishing.

I use 8000 grit for my final polish on chisels and plane irons.

Dust Collection

I keep this cyclone hooked up to my table saw and planer. It keeps your shop vac from filling with sawdust and clogging the filter. The vast majority of the sawdust gets separated by the cyclone.

Aluminum 2.5 inch blast gate that I use at my planer to cut off vacuum to the tool. No complaints.

Aluminum 4 inch blast gate that I use at my table saw to cut off vacuum to the tool. No complaints.

Shop Safety

These GRR-Ripper push blocks are indispensable in my shop.

These GRR-Ripper push blocks are indispensable in my shop.

I use these pushblocks at the jointer, router table and bandsaw primarily.

I use this at the lathe to keep chunks of wood from hitting me in the face.

These featherboards are great at the table saw and the router table. I like that the direction of the feathers is reversible.

I love using this full face respirator for a few things in the shop. They are great to wear when dumping saw dust as the full face keeps the dust out of your lungs and eyes.

These are the cartridges that I use for my full face respirator. They are rated for Organic Vapor/Acid Gas. This way you can use them when working with solvents too.

These are the ear protectors that I use when running my routers and my planer. They are comfortable and work well.

After I bought my saw I bought one of these to replace the stock blade guard. No problems. This one is for use with a full kerf blade.

Glues and Glue Supplies

Titebond I is my go-to glue for most projects.

Titebond II

Titebond III is an excellent choice for waterproof applications. I use this on cutting boards and outdoor projects.

JB Weld is a two part epoxy that, when mixed, is almost completely black. I use this to fill voids in cherry quite often.

The perfect glue bottle for glueing up projects. I used to use a Tupperware container and an applicator but this is much easier to use.

After the glue has dried it peels right off.
 

I use this to seal CA glue and other air/moisture sensitive materials. It wraps around the lid and stretches to form a nice seal.

Picture Framing

I use this to drive points into picture frames. The points are what hold the glass, backing, and picture in the frame.

This is the clamp that I use for all my mitered picture frames. I have been using this for several years.

This is a great tool if you want to reinforce miter joints with V-nails. This can also be used to insert points. I rarely use this anymore because I reinforce miters with splines and drive points with my Fitting Tool.

Finish and Finishing Supplies

Satin Arm-R-Seal. My favorite finish currently.

Gloss Arm-R-Seal. It's hard to beat the look and ease of use of Arm-R-Seal.

I use this paste wax for lubricating parts, providing a protective anti-rust finish on tools and to sometimes give a final coat to furniture projects.

I like to make a mixture of this with polyurethane and thinner (1:1:1) for a nice looking finish.

Marking, Measuring and Aligning

A great radius template. I use this a lot when making cloud lifts for G&G pieces.

An extremely accurate dial indicator that measures to 0.0001". I don't use this one too often but it's nice to have around.

A caliper is a tool that I keep in my shop apron all the time. I constantly use this tool.

The dial indicator and magnetic base combo is indispensable in my shop. I use this all the time.

Every woodworker has at least one reference for square, but not all have a reference for flat. In my opinion a reference for flat is just as important. I have owned this one for several years and I use it constantly. They are great for helping to align tools, sharpen jointer knives and plane irons and to even flatten the bottoms of hand planes (with adhered sandpaper). This one is 9x12 inches.

A great tool that I have used to align my jointer knives with my outfeed table. Even better when used in conjunction with a dial indicator to find top-dead-center. I have a video of the process in my video section. See the alignment category.
 

I have not purchased this set, but it looks like it would be great to use for zeroing your dial indicator alignment jig at different angles.

Sanding Supplies

80 Grit adhesive paper for removing a lot of material fast at the table saw using a sanding disc.

A sanding disc for the table saw is very useful for removing a lot of material fast.

Router Bits

I have ued this bit to make a few trays so far. A great bit. Search my video page for trays.

A great 3/16 inch radius round over.

A great pattern bit. The smaller diameter (3/4 inch) comes in handy for getting into tight curves on templates. Nice and clean cuts.

A great mortising bit. I use this to fine-tune tenon cheeks at the router table. I also use this bit in my trim router to flush edge banding on plywood edges.

A great pattern bit. The 3/4 inch diameter is a great size for most template radiuses that I use.

Router Accesories

I own the D4R and not the D4R-Pro, but this is the newest version of the jig that I own. I LOVE this dovetail jig. The dovetail layout is completely adjustable.

Miscellaneous Tools

I use these for supporting work at my table saw and my bandsaw.

A fast and easy way to make precise box joints. I've used this to make a few projects so far.

I used this Forstner bit to drill the holes for the weather station. Worked very well. 2-3/8" diameter.

Audio and Video Equipment

This receiver and transmitter creates noise free audio for my dialogue segments. No complaints.

A great shotgun mic. I use this for non-dialogue segments.

I use this external monitor when reviewing footage and for setting up shots.

I use this to hold my wireless audio receiver and my shotgun microphone on my camera. No complaints.

These are the wireless bluetooth earbuds I wear when filming. Because I can not play music when filming, these earbuds are a nice alternative. They work great and I have never had any problems with them.
