Power Tools

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

More InfoA 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.

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

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

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

More InfoThis 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.

More InfoThis 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.

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

More InfoThis 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.

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

Hand Tools

More InfoThis 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.

More InfoI use this flushtrim saw to flush plugs to the surface.

More InfoI 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

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

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

Clamps

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

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

Dust Collection

More InfoI 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.

More InfoI 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.

More InfoThese 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.

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

Glues and Glue Supplies

More InfoTitebond II

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

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

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

More InfoAfter the glue has dried it peels right off.

Picture Framing

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

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

More InfoThis 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

More InfoSatin Arm-R-Seal. My favorite finish currently.

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

Marking, Measuring and Aligning

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

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

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

More InfoEvery 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.

More InfoA 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.
 

More InfoI have not purchased this set, but it looks like it would be great to use for zeroeing your dial indicator alignment jig at differemt angles.

Sanding Supplies

More Info80 Grit adhesive paper for removing a lot of material fast at the table saw using a sanding disc.

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

Router Bits

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

More InfoA great 3/16 inch radius round over.

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

More InfoA 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.

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

Router Accesories

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