Resaw, recycle and re-use

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There’s no such thing as scrap. This time, the original scrap saw not one, but two useful lives.

The luxury of time

Money is usually the prime consideration when buying a new tool. However, having the time to shop is just as important.

To your health

At the risk of repetition, let’s talk about health and the woodshop one more time.

Back to back

Just quickly following up on last time, my back is fine. More or less. Still, the entire experience was eye opening, shop-wise. And should be for you, too.

Backing up a bit

We use our whole bodies when working in the shop. I’ve recently realized just how much I use a particular part of my body: my back.

Rust bucket

I had a leak I didn’t know about that, in a circuitous Rube Goldbergian way, made its way to my jointer. I just found it, and although I’m not happy it could have been worse.

Embarrassment of riches

I’ve said before I have too much stuff in my woodshop. Well, I mean it this time. No, really.

Daylight woodshop time

This time next week, it won’t BE this time next week. That’s right: The time to reset the clocks is upon us.

Tell or teach?

If someone needs woodworking advice, is it better to just tell them what they need to know, or help them learn it? Depends.

Gets my vote every time

With two weeks till the election, I’ve finally decided my preference: Being in my woodshop where I don’t hear anything about it.
