Thank You Veterans!

Published by under Uncategorized

Veterans Day is this week and I wanted to take a moment and thank my fellow Veterans for their service! This service is a generational legacy, and a bond we all share, whether we did it or are still doing it. Standing up for our country is beyond the job. It is knowing you will answer any call, any time, any place, anywhere.

It was an honor to have served with those I served with, and an honor to recognize all who serve and served. Thank you for the legacy of honorable service and sacrifices each of you have made and continue to make for our country’s freedom and liberty!

In good times and the bad, your service matters!

We try to keep the word out that every day is Veteran’s Day at Evenfall Studios. We offer 10% off to Veterans for all our craftsman Made Tools, no limits, 24/7/365. A gift from our family to you.

All you need to do is Shop our Online Store and pick out the tools you’d like custom made for you. Contact Us, Tell us about your U.S. Military Service, and tell us which tools you are interested in and we will get a PayPal invoice to you for your approval. Simple as that. No forms to fill out, or hoops to jump other than letting us know, and we’ll take it from there.

Thanks for visiting Evenfall Studios!

Maintenance Sharpening is Faster Sharpening.

Published by under Sharpening

Sharpening. To many, it’s do or dread and do anyway. Listen, it doesn’t have to be the chore that it can be, you just have to change the approach. We did and we offer the tools we developed to help make it easier for everyone.

Many of us have used the approach of working a tool until it is good and dull. The reason why is that it can be a lot of work to sharpen, so we hold out till we have to. There are two downsides to this. It is a lot of work to resharpen once you let tools get this dull, you sometimes have to rebuild the edges over again, and the other is that the indicators that we are this dull are that the tool is pushing hard, doing a poor job, or even starting to damage our work.

Why do we wait so long to sharpen?

Shooting Boards are More Versatile than you Remember

Published by under Shooting boards,Woodworks Store

Once upon a time Shooting Boards in woodworking were made for use at 90 degrees, and others for 45 degrees, and a few could do both. It was hard to keep them accurate and sometimes they took up a lot of space.

Then, Shooting Boards Evolved.

For seven years now, we have been offering our shooting boards to woodworkers worldwide.

We love precision. We care about Craftsmanship. From the work of our hands, we wanted more. From day one we have offered shooting boards made form Baltic Birch, the most stable wood available for woodworking. We still do. We feel they are the most accurate shooting boards available, capable of accuracy of up to 0.001 inch.

Over the years, all our shooting boards as well as the other tools we offer have been purpose made. Thousands of hours making meticulously and purposefully in a one man shop. After processing tons of personally selected Baltic Birch Plywood into thousands of tools and parts, we still offer our original shooting board, the “Deluxe Shooter” made to the same specifications we started out with. It has been joined by many other shooting boards that share it’s basic design, and offer woodworkers all the same accuracy and flexibility possible.

Our Original Shooting Board, the one that launched it all: The Deluxe Shooter.

For Sale – Surplus Equipment

Published by under For Sale

Some years back I had an interest in Amateur Radio. I have some Ham Radio gear that I no longer foresee using and feel it is perhaps time to share it with someone who will enjoy it!

I realize my blog and business is a woodworking-centric blog, so I’d like to ask our readers to bear with me here. We all have hobbies and who knows who may be into Ham Radio or knows someone who is, but I’d like to share these items here to see if any Ham’s or friends who are Ham’s may be hunting for gear for their radio hobby.

If you are not in the market, but know of anyone who may be interested in purchasing this gear, please refer them to this webpage. Thanks!

All my gear has been treated well, in a non smoking heated indoor environment. It is in very good, well kept condition.

Shooting Board Versatility

We get many questions about shooting boards, there is a lot they can help you do. There are many woodworking parts and operations that benefit from using a shooting board to true our work, and we can apply it in more ways that traditionally imagined. The tool in and of itself is capable of providing machinist level accuracy to woodwork, and better suited to be thought as similar to a series of different saws or bench planes. It isn’t a one size fits all tool, and it depends on your application(s). The shooting board is much more than a one trick pony.

Logging in the Redwoods – 1946

As woodworkers, we are always using our tools in ensemble to overcome challenges. What we need to make and the materials we seek to make things from are part and parcel of the challenge, but we must acquire the skill to wield our tools and we must learn the ways of wood.

For many woodworkers, it has been beneficial to go back in time and reacquire the skills and tradecraft knowledge that previous generations evolved, learning that both the tools and methods from the hands and eyes, which make for deeper craftsman skill still retain all the quality, productivity and capability they always had in today’s small shop.

Shooting Board Fence Upgrades

We’d like to let you know that we have introduced some new shooting board fences into our Accessory line, as upgrades.

Stylized Standard Fence

These fences are Stylized Fences, and they are in use, the same fences as our Standard and Double High Models, with all the same accuracy you have come to expect from us. The major differences are that they are slightly longer and have an “Ogee” decoration handworked onto the adjustment end of the fence.

Shooting Boards for Makers

Recently we have received a few e-mails asking if shooting boards are a good tool for makers. Absolutely! Our shooting boards can help you make nearly anything – material appropriate – that you want!

Woodworking is making with wood as the making media or material. Making anything usually means parts are part of any ensemble and parts need to fit together. Fortunately, You don’t have to have a full woodworking shop for making a lot of things. You can tool up just to handle specific tasks.

Subscribe To Our Email Newsletter

Published by under Thoughts & Musings

Over time, I have had contact with a number of woodworkers who’ve asked to be included in updates when we release new tools or have some cool woodworking information. Until now, the only way I have had to keep in touch with woodworkers is through this blog. The blog is a great way to say many things, but it isn’t always the best way to to share everything or reach people directly on a regular, routine manner when they want to stay informed.

So, we did something about it. I’ve created an Email Newsletter.

I want to keep it enjoyable. Signing up will provide you inside track information about our tools, new releases, and relevant woodworking information. By signing up, you’ll receive this information first – prior to the readers of our blog, including exclusive information we may not share on our blog.

This will not be a daily newsletter or sale advertisement. It will keep you informed about our tools, specials we may offer, and woodworking info we want to share with you. I intend to publish infrequently – once or twice a month as time permits and whenever there is information we’d like to share so don’t worry, I won’t be filling your inbox.

I want you to know, we respect your email privacy. We have never shared data with anyone and never will. No one will ever be auto-subscribed to our Email Newsletter, we leave that choice to you. It is easy to subscribe and just as easy to unsubscribe or modify your subscription – anytime. To sign up, please follow this link:

Click Here To Subscribe!

There are also sign up links here in the right margin of the blog, and near the top of many pages on our website. You can sign up or unsubscribe anytime!

I think it will be a good fit for us, and hope it will be for you. We want to help you stay connected with us in the way that fits best for you. I’d like to have you in the loop with us. I hope you’ll subscribe!

Shooting Any Angle You Like

Any Angle Fence

While it is true that the traditional shooting board is most often made for shooting 90° and on occasion some are made to shoot 45° as well, we offer shooting boards that not only offer those two angles, but the ability to fixture a fence at up to eight different angles all in one board. But we didn’t stop there.

The reality of woodworking and cabinetry requires special tools for special situations. Not everything we make is perfectly square, nor is it necessarily perfectly angled. Sometimes we have to match angles that are caused by any number of different things. So while the actual angle it is whatever it may be, we may still need to divide that angle by half in order to create the complementary angles for a miter. Often this can lead us to angles that most shooting boards can’t reach.
