Welcome to Woodworker++

This blog is intended to be a journal of my progress as a woodworker. Grab a drink, maybe some popcorn, sit back and enjoy a glimpse into my woodworking projects, both failed and successful. Why should you care what I do, or what I have to say? You shouldn't, but just maybe I can keep you from making the same mistakes that I had to learn the hard way.

Spent some time in the garage...

Bought a vacuum bag for my Rigid 14 gallon vac. From what I've read on forums and read on podcasts, using the filter alone will allow dust into the motor. So, I bought a bag, and a new filter. Now the vac is ready for catching dust.

I sharpened all of my plane blades. Working that hard maple & walnut dinged up the edges pretty good. I re-beveled them and honed up the edge. They're now sharp enough to shave the hair on my arm. If you're wondering, I use the Scary Sharp method. I tried some oil stones, and they work pretty well. I like scary sharp better.
