388 Blum Tool Co. on MBW

October 12, 20093 Comments

It’s easy to see that much hasn’t changed with hand planes in the past 100 years. In fact if you look closely, most modern plane makers are, essentially making the same metal bodied planes as were being designed by Mr. Bailey. Even wooden bodied planes haven’t seen much innovation. Of course the choice of wood […]

377 Try It Tuesdays – Dewalt Track Saw

September 1, 20092 Comments

Let’s admit it, track saws are pretty sweet tools. It’s hard for me to imagine a home woodworker who doesn’t have a circular saw up on the shelf that gets used primarily for breaking down sheet goods. And while they’re worth their weight in exotic lumber (for me that’s Pennsylvania Cherry), they have their limitations. […]
