The Woodshop Widget

The Woodshop Widget


The Woodshop Widget is a rich collection of wood-related utilities, ranging from board volume calculation to shellac mixing aids, squareness testing and many other goodies. It is useful in woodworking as well as in DIY and construction/contracting projects. It contains a wide range of functionality that handles many tedious tasks simply and clearly, and extensive information on 288 species of wood.

The Widget understands Imperial and Metric. You can change this at any time.

Movement
Shows an estimate of how much a board might grow and shrink under different conditions, based on verified information for over 270 distinct species. You can enter measured or humidity-based water content, board width, and how the board was cut from the tree (anywhere from flat to quartersawn). The amount of change is shown as you edit.

Board Volume
Easily enter the 3 dimensions required for calculating board volume and get an immediate amount. You can also enter a price and quantity of boards for a total price. The local currency is automatically used when entering prices.

Compare
A species comparison tool that lets you walk through information on up to 288 species of wood, comparing hardness, density and movement. It even shows you which species is "better."

Decimal to Fraction
Enter fractions and see the decimal results, or enter decimal values and see fractions calculated, all in one place. Remainders and reduced fractions are automatically shown.

Species
A species data viewer which also includes "other names" for up to 288 species.

Shellac
Mix or dilute shellac in any amounts. Enter a "pound cut" and the measurements are balanced for you. Mix as much or as little as you need, using not only gallons and pounds, but also cups and ounces or liters and milliliters. Dilute from any pound cut that you have on hand to any other concentration, instantly!

Squareness
Test your framing squares, combination squares, carcasses or anything else that needs a perfect right angle for accuracy by measuring lengths. The Widget will show you how far from "right" the angle is.

Will not run Installed this app based on a magazine review and it will not run on either my S4 or Nexus 10. I get the "Unfortunately, Woodshop has stopped" message. I have sent in the reports and tried to contact the developer multiple times trying to get a resolution or my money back and no return emails. I would recommend to not buy this app and for Google to take it out of the store.
