Christmastime is one of those perfect times of the year to make someone a special handmade gift. So I took to the shop after Thanksgiving, stepping away from my lathe and decided to do something different. With my daughter Maddy’s growing interest in baking, I decided to make her a heirloom Recipe Box as a Christmas gift. I purchased a Bubinga board about 6 ft.in length x 11″ wide x 3/4″ thick from Woodcraft. It had such beautiful figured grain and sort of a pink-brown color to it, perfect for my 16 year old. It has been a number of years (about 35!) since I’ve done any flat work, back in my Boardman High School days in Ohio, learning under the tutelage of Mr. Haug, my woodshop instructor.
Scott Phillips has gone shopping at Woodcraft, and the co-host of The American Woodshop on PBS found lots of Christmas gift ideas for the woodworkers and DIYers. A few of the products in the “Phillips Collection” are mentioned here priced between $10 to $150. So for great gifts and stocking stuffers, Woodcraft Santa has got you covered this holiday and Christmas season.
Safety for your hands
This is the single BEST safety item I have ever purchased. It is spectacular when sawing narrow boards. A MUST HAVE!!!
Not all that !
Have had one of these for several years now and haven't found it to be of much use, since the grip on the wood isn't always what it needs to be. For me at least it's proved to be more of a nuisance than anything else. Much overprice piece of plastic really !
NOT GOOD FOR LARGE BOARDS
I purchased this product a couple of years ago, also buying several of the accessories. I found it cumbersome and time-consuming to set up and it didn't work well with large boards. I contacted the company, and, luckily, they let me return it. It might be OK for ripping small boards, but, as a furniture maker, I found it took too much time to use and awkward when ripping long boards.
Best accessory I own
I've been using this with my table saw for over a year, and I've found it very helpful. But I decided to write a review after trying it with using it with smaller pieces I was cutting patterns with on the router table. I have complete control and a high degree of force on pieces that get my fingers too close to the bit. Now I'm completely sold. I haven't tried any of its accessories yet.
Easily adjustable for various widths and thicknesses when used as a push block on the table saw, jointer and router table.
