Exact Width Dado Jig

NEW Woodpeckers® OneTIME Tool®
Exact Width Dado Jig

Woodpeckers newest OneTIME Tool, the Exact Width Dado Jig, solves the problem of making dadoes that fit properly by avoiding measuring altogether...just use the actual material you're fitting into the dado as the gauge to set up the cut. After a quick trim pass to match your router to the jig, all you have to do is fit your stock tightly between the edge guides and you're ready to make a perfect fitting dado.

Last day to order is 2/25/19!

Build a Krenov-style Plane with Jim Dillon
March 26, 2019

The Hock Krenov-style plane kit is an ideal way for the beginning toolmaker to dip their toes in the big, big pond of plane making. In the four hours of this class you'll assemble the body; sharpen the iron; flatten the sole; shape the body with bandsaw, rasps, and sandpaper; learn about adjusting the plane to take shavings as you want to; and perhaps even apply the first coat of boiled linseed oil finish.

Gyokucho Rip Dozuki Saw

Tool Review:
Gyokucho Rip
Dozuki Saw

Woodworkers immediately think about two things when Japanese saws are mentioned. First, the extremely thin blade which produces a very thin kerf. Second, the fact that you cut on the pull stroke rather than the push stroke. These end up being 2 great advantages to the Gyokucho Rip Dozuki Saw, Model 372, which Jeff reviews this month.
