Marking and Measuring

Saturday June 9, 2018

by Randy Rodriguez



The Key to fine woodworking is not precision as in metalworking, but in accuracy and repeatability, Consequently, a tape measure is actually a rought tool and use of story sticks, calipers, dividers, marking gauges, and knives enable a woodworker to create accurate and repeatable work without a lot of rework.  This seminar will cover various purchased and shop made marking/measuring tools and how to apply them to your work for superior work effort.

Special Lumber


4/4 Live Edge Walnut

4/4 Walnut


Our next lumber special is going to be on select pieces of 4/4 live edge walnut.  These cutoffs are roughly 24-48" long and 12-18" wide. They'd be perfect for seats, benches, shelves, or more.  As always it's hard to capture on a camera, but quite a few of these pieces came from the crotch of the tree and so they have some great curly features.  Come in to CU Woodshop soon to pick them up for your next project! 


List Price: $10.00
Sales Price: $6.25

This lumber will be on special at CU Woodshop through Saturday 06/02/18.


Walrus Oil

A natural wood finish made with a blend of coconut oil, mineral oil, vitamin E and beeswax. All ingredients are FDA compliant and safe for food contact surfaces. Shelf stable, does not solidify under normal conditions, and has no weird scent.  It leaves your board with a smooth finish, rich color, and a little shine.
With a stable shelf life these are perfect to have on hand to keep your cutting boards fresh and protected.

Discontinued Festool Dust Extractors


Out with the old in with the new!
Festool has discontinued some of their older equipment and we're happy to announce that we will be running a special on the now discontinued models of dust extractors.  The three main differences between the models of dust extractors are that the new models have the new style of hose, a new and stronger plastic for the upper garage, and an improved t-lock system for the front. Otherwise the models are identical.
Limited supply available! If you've been saving up for a dust extractor or need an extra one now is a great time to buy!  
Check the chart below for our stock and pricing for these discontinued dust extractors.


CT-MIDI $509.00
CT-26 $657.00
CT-36 $711.00
CT-48 $747.00


As these are discontinued models of the dust extractors are supplies are limited and no discount will be given on the new tools in compliance with Festool's vendor policies.


Exotic Cutoffs


These were popular the first time around, CU Woodshop was finally able to get another 600lbs of exotic cutoffs back into the store!  There's a mix of purpleheart, padauk, bloodwood, wenge, zebrawood, lacewood, canarywood, pink ivory, cherry, and walnut all mixed together and available at CUWS now for $5.00 / pound.
