Dust Collection Issues. #4: A re-vamp of my Green Valley HF setup with truck filter.

01-19-2016 01:05 AM by shipwright | 16 comments »

I have had my HFDC for several years now, originally stock, then with the Wynn 35A canister, and finally with a couple of home made cyclone type mods. My last mod finally got it built in and piped. Well, we sold that place and bought a smaller one that promises a permanent shop that doesn’t turn back into a garage every night so the DC had to be moved and I can’t do that without tinkering a little more with the system so here is the new setup that I have been using for a couple of...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #1: My Interpretation of Thos. Moser's Design

04-30-2013 01:09 PM by DustyMark | 8 comments »

What to Expect This blog series will highlight some of the techniques I use in solid wood case construction. My previous blog, about building the New Gloucester rocker, covered nearly every step in photographs with an occasional video. This blog will not detail every step along the way, but will rather explore key details of case construction using primarily videos. The videos are “rough takes” since I’m not going to spend the extra time to edit them. In those situati...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #12: Making Tea Box Dividers Of Venetian Blinds

04-26-2014 09:22 AM by Boxguy | 25 comments »

How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...

Easy Wood Tools / Midi Lathe Duplicator #1: Making the 'Stands'

02-01-2015 11:46 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 7 comments »

As they say, ‘Necessity is the Mother of Invention’ and you, the woodworker, knows that fact the best. I have a little job where I am going to make 4 finials for a mahogany antique bed. I tried to buy some pre-made finials online but I couldn’t find any that matched the size and the style. Besides, the finials I found were maple and I just don’t want to try to match the finish already in the hole of trying to make maple look like mahogany. I have a set of Easy Wo...

Delta 50-760 with Cyclone Retrofit.

04-29-2012 11:46 PM by TechRedneck | 21 comments »

I have declared war on dust in the shop. My shop is in the basement/garage and I have been spending more and more time there. Recently I was planing/jointing around 100’ of rough cut cherry for a project which produced a lot of sawdust from all the power tools used. As a hybrid woodworker, I like to get my wood from the mill and prep it myself, saving money. Once I get the stock flat and square and within 1/8” or less then I switch to hand tools. I purchased a Delta 50-76...

Thickness Sander from an 8 x 4 sheet of plywood

03-21-2013 04:46 PM by Jim Rowe | 16 comments »

This is my first attempt at blogging but I thought people might be interested in the approach I took. Getting hold of consistently dimensioned timber for making boxes has always been a challenge, especially when small thicknesses are required and when the timber is hard to come by (expensive and scarce). I have seen many examples of beautiful boxes here on LJs from makers who have either made their own thickness sanders or have bought commercial equipment. For me, buying a ready made thick...

Hand Cut Double Dovetail Experiment

07-03-2008 06:48 AM by Woodhacker | 82 comments »

After admiring the double and double-double dovetail joints that are capable with the Incra and other jigs, I started thinking, “Why not try this by hand?” So this box is my first experiment with handcut double dovetails. It took me some time to figure out the joinery process, but once I realized a few things about this type of joint, it seemed do-able. It was quite challenging but also a ton of fun. It also does take some degree of patience and precision…which I’m still working on. In...
