It’s always exciting around here when we receive a full 40-foot ocean container load of something we’ve ordered from abroad. Today we unloaded 70 Hofmann & Hammer workbenches from a container shipped direct from the factory in Gruenfeld-Zimmern, Germany. We believe they are truly the finest value in a premium quality workbench available anywhere. They’re now on sale on our website. Save $200 on the Large and Medium benches, and $100 on the compact bench.
Chris Black is shown demonstrating how to restore and sharpen an old handsaw in the Highland Woodworking booth at the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event on Friday, May 7, 2010 at Peach State Lumber in Kennesaw, GA (20 miles north of Atlanta up I-75). Hands-on instruction in sharpening, tuning and using hand planes by Lie-Nielsen employees (including owner Tom Lie-Nielsen) is available throughout the day.
The show continues from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, May 8. Admission is free.
Highland Woodworking is now the exclusive supplier for the Earlex 2900 HVLP Spray Station, which has brought a new level of performance and affordability to spray finishing.
The compact Earlex HVLP unit is an exceptional value with its aluminum spray gun, teflon-coated paint cup and 13 foot spray hose, all of which store neatly onboard the turbine unit.
HVLP technology now makes it easy for woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers to step up to spray finishing without the expense and steep learning curve once associated with spray finishing.
Our versatile Earlex 2900 HVLP sprayer comes equipped to apply a variety of finishes ranging from lacquers, varnishes, and polyurethanes to modern water-based finishes. Thinned latex paint can also be applied both interior and exterior.
We supply the Earlex 2900 HVLP sprayer with a quick start guide as well as master finisher Jeff Jewitt’s excellent DVD and illustrated guide to spray finishing. The entire package deal is priced at only $149.99.
When we saw this jig demonstrated at the AWFS Show in Las Vegas last summer, our first thought was “Who needs another specialized router table jig?”
Boy, were we wrong! Kreg’s new Beaded Face Frame System has taken off like you cannot imagine. Simply put, it easily produces cabinet face frames that feature attractive professional-looking beads that connect flawlessly around the entire frame. It’s either doing the work of a specialized machine that would otherwise cost thousands of dollars, or it quickly and efficiently replaces a long and laborious tablesaw project plus tedious assembly.
John Lucas has provided a detailed illustrated tutorial on using the jig on his website Wood Shop Demos.
We also have a 3-minute video demo of the tool in action.
