Drawer Slides come in many different types and determining which type to use for your project can be difficult. We will show you how to select and install the right drawer slide for your project.
We will be exploring wood and its characteristics – what are the differences between hard wood and soft woods, tight grain and open grain, what causes wood sensitivities and how to know if one is a concern, personal protection when working with wood, and so much more.
Wondering why Festool has a large variety of sander models? We would like to invite you to this special event with our Festool Regional Manager and expert, Jeff Covey, who will explain their unique differences, advantages and uses of each sander, and tips on how best to use them. You will be amazed at how dust-free sanding can be with the Festool dust extraction system that allows you to focus on your projects and have almost no clean-up!
No single wood glue is perfect for every job. Each has strengths and limitations. Choosing the right glue for your project is fundamental to a lasting assembly or a successful repair.
Learn fundamentals of the cutting capacities, how to select a blade and adjust the tension, setting the guide blocks/bearings, wheel alignment, set-up tips, maintenance, and other tips for your bandsaw. Our 14" Rikon deluxe bandsaw will be used to demonstrate the key tune-up tips.
Choosing the right dust collection system can be a daunting task. Learn about the factors you should consider when choosing the equipment that will meet your needs.
Flattening a large, natural slabs present unusual challenges. One side of a slab needs to be flattened before feeding it through even large planers or thickness sanders. You can try hand planing or belt sanding, but they are very labor intensive. Making a router sled/slab flattening mill is a great way to flatten work pieces that are otherwise too large or unmanageable.
Resawing lumber is cutting the stock lengthwise along the edge. Resawing a board creates a thinner piece of stock. This technique is used to make thin panels, such as veneer, and also to make book match panels. Learn how to choose the best band saw blade and band saw fence to resaw a board.
Cutting boards are such an easy, appreciated gift to make for Christmas! Do you have a lot of scraps or cut-offs in your shop? We will show you how you can make unique cutting boards with patterns or by creatively arranging your wood into a unique design. Learn also the pros and cons of end grain vs face grain cutting boards.
Do you enjoy working with plywood? A great way to initially cut your plywood sheets down to more manageable sizes is to use your circular saw with a guide or using a track saw. Learn about the factors you should consider when choosing a track saw or a saw guide that will meet your needs.
Learn how easy it is to use inlay to create extraordinary projects. Paua Abalone, a rare and unique material found only in New Zealand, comes in precut inlay strips that make installation fast and simple – no fussing with inlaying small particles. Flexible material bends around turned forms and even ring channel blanks. No power tools necessary.
We can all admit it – every time we open up a wooden drawer we look to see the type of joinery used. Like stitching on a fine piece of clothing, joinery is a sign of the maker’s skill and an indication of the overall quality of the piece. Today’s demo will identify several styles and methods of creating the perfect drawer.
Each year Woodcraft of Toledo sponsors a Children's Toy Workshop event where children build two toys -- one to keep and one to donate to our Toys for Kids Christmas Program for children less fortunate in our area.Because we are required to have marketing information available months in advance of our events, we are advising that you check our website blog, watch our e-newsletters, check our Facebook page, or contact our store for details as to how it will operate this year.
