As you may recall, I recently took a trip to visit a regional Woodworking Show. Before the actual show, I knew which booths I wanted to visit most, and Woodpeckers was at the very top of that list. If theirs was the only booth I was able to visit at that show, the trip would have still been […]

I spotted this tiny non-marring hammer over at a recent Woodworking show. With dime-sized replaceable brass and plastic heads, this hammer is most likely used for precision tool setup or maintenance, unless there are other woodworking applications that I’m not yet aware of.
Over at the Woodworking Show we recently visited, I spotted an incredible working wood geared clock kit by Woodline. These photos hardly do the clock justice – it was far more spectactular in person.

These shelf pins are quick and easy to adjust, and can be used to eliminate the wobbling or trembling associated with slightly misaligned support pin holes in cabinets and shelving. Even if you can […]
Bench Dog has recently launched their own line of woodworking Bench Cookies. No doubt these cookies are a licensed or rebranded version of Rockler’s design, but what this means is that Bench Cookies may soon reach a much larger audience. Bench Dog’s new Bench Cookie release comes hot on the heels of Rockler’s own launch […]
At a recent Woodworking Show, I had the opportunity to see a Final Cut saw blade in action. We’re currently reviewing Final Cut’s 10″ blade on a miter saw, but it was good to see the same blade used in a table saw. Final Cut’s new circular saw blades were also on-scene, but I didn’t stick […]

The homemade overarm pin router is designed to be flexible and somewhat modular, and it looks […]
We’re not normally into Facebook apps or add-ons, but this new one by the Sears Blue Tools Crew definitely caught our attention. A few major tool companies and distributors have been using Facebook as a way of reaching the public, but this is the first tool-ish related app that we’ve heard about. This simple Woodshop app allows […]
