Setting Up Delta DC w/ Wynn Filter & Super Dust Deputy

03-31-2014 02:40 AM by dakotawood | 5 comments »

Alright, my first blog entry ever. I’ve learned so much from so many here. Figured it’s my turn to hopefully help someone out there. I researched this topic extensively. There were similar things on LJ about this upgrade. But I found I wanted some more specifics as to how to hook up exactly before I purchased everything. I have a Delta 50-760 DC. As you can kind of see in this image, my existing factory cloth bag has seen better days. It’s quite brown colored on the outsi...

Shaker Door becomes....Tutorial

12-27-2009 07:01 AM by kolwdwrkr | 23 comments »

I was out making a set of doors today and I decided that the fine folks here on LJs might appreciate a tutorial. I realize there are those of you that should be schooling me on the matter, but figured there were some that would like to learn it as well. So I will do my best to give pertanent information. Thanks for reading. To start off you need to consider shop safety. Make sure the guards on your tools are opporational and you have the proper safety glasses, ear plugs, and dust mask.F...

Shop Notes #3: "No End In Sight" The documentary.

09-22-2013 02:44 AM by vipond33 | 20 comments »

This is a trick that many, if not most of you, already know. But it’s a good one and bears repeating. Quite recently I read this: “but I am still working on trying to make a box with no start and no finish and thus far have only been able to wrap my boxes on three sides”. (noted on KK’s fine project). The process has been around for a long time, but I remember independently figuring this one out a while ago and thinking what a smile it would bring to the aver...

Utilitarian Projects #7: My cutoffs breed and multiply at night..........what's an LJ to do?

03-18-2013 12:02 AM by Jim Bertelson | 27 comments »

My cutoffs breed and multiply at night……..do yours? Mine begged for a new home, so I started this cart about 8 months ago, then had about 6 months out of the shop due to some work related computer projects, and then today, I finished it. This is the detailed blog, later I’ll post a brief report as a project. My cutoffs are now finally content……perhaps reborn, set for inclusion into new and exciting projects. Exciting is still an IN word, isn’t it? Feeling old and marginalized…...

New State, New Shop #12: Up-grading the Dust Collection

01-10-2013 06:06 PM by DrPuk2U | 4 comments »

When I first set up my shop, I bought a Delta 50-760 DC. It works well enough, but when jointing and planing a lot of wood the plastic bag fills up fairly rapidly and it is a PAIN to take off, empty and then re-install. Once you get the hang of it, the process is easier but it’s never easy and it almost inevitably ends up with a bunch of saw dust all over. So I decide to invest in a Oneida Super Dust Deputy. By the time I got it, I had realized that the fact that the Delta was mob...

Drunken Cutting Boards #2: Smooth Flowing Drunken Checker board

09-21-2009 03:49 AM by poroskywood | 15 comments »

So having read part #1 I’ll complete the second variation of the Drunken checker board pattern. The process is basically the same except for one critical part and is as follows. Start again by taping two blanks together. This time In stead of making opposing S cuts I’ll follow the S pattern with each cut. (I get a little sloppy, but it works out OK). Follow the Part #1 procedure. CRITICAL PART! This step creates the difference between the pattern in part one ...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #1: Lets Get Started

05-11-2009 08:36 PM by JonH | 2 comments »

For the first part of the project, you must ask yourself, “What size is the box going to be?” If you aren’t sure, just take a couple 2×4’s and glue them together, or get a chunk of a cedar 4×4, they work good, and smell nice when they are cut up. You can get as elaborate as you want later on, but for starters keep things simple to manage. The project must be made from a solid piece of wood or several pieces glued together to become solid. By laminating ...

Drunken Cutting Boards #1: Drunken Alice in Wonderland Cutting Board

09-10-2009 03:22 AM by poroskywood | 43 comments »

Hey everybody, after a few personal messages here is my version of a how to on a Drunken Checker Board. I of coarse bow to the Chairman of the Board and pay tribute with beer. This is a Off-Checker pattern I call “Drunken Alice in Wonderland” The “serendipitous” nature of this piece is appealing in a far out sort of way. Here Goes… So first I prepare the Material. I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...

12-12-2011 05:30 PM by bj383ss | 5 comments »

Here is a toy garage I am working on for my youngest son Ryan. He is really into Hot wheels. I got the plans for this garage from a friend in Australia. He has been building these for several years. I had something similar to this when I was a kid except mine was plastic. This project was alot of fun and very easy to make. The boys as you can see wanted to start playing with it before I finished it. ...
