Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight DC #5: Woodcraft Remote Control... it really works!

07-15-2011 05:52 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

Finally purchased one of these on sale at Woodcraft. It works great with this setup. Just plug in to the wall and plug the collector in to the remote. The collector fires right up. And the collector is working great too.

This is my first woodworking project. I built it to enter in a student competition. I placed 4th at Regional’s and 6th at International’s with students from around the world. My Inspiration for this project come from an article from issue #176 of Fine Woodworking magazine. My choice of subject for my bench top work bench was because I wanted something useful that I knew I would use often. My project is basically a miniature work bench. Its purpose is to bring the work your doing up higher ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #13: E-Reader Stand

12-15-2013 04:58 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

My wife and I both use E-Readers, myself, because there are a limited number of paper books available, and my Wife, because books in Colombia are horrendously expensive. Anyway I digress… My wife wanted a stand for hers, so she could read it comfortably in bed, without having to hold it all the time. So I came up with a simple design, made of scrap wood lying around the workshop, in this case, some 3/4” ply for the back support, 6mm MDF for the backboard and front strips, and s...

Japanese Toolbox Build #5: Finally

07-15-2014 03:46 AM by siavosh | 3 comments »

So after what feels like more than a month of travel and flu, I got a chance to finish the toolbox this past weekend. After a fair bit frustration (and fun), I built a toolbox that stays true to its name. I was hoping I’d end up with a high class sleek version of the classic sliding lid Japanese toolbox, but after a prolong and humbling experience, I’m happy it can just carry my tools. At some point, I’d like to add in a tray for the smaller items, but I think it can wait. S...

The Irony of Bush Fires

12-21-2006 09:42 AM by Don | 3 comments »

It’s 104 in the shade today. I still can’t get used to temperatures like this, particularly at Christmas. The only white Christmas we are likely to have is from the ash bowing in from the bush fires. Sometimes the visibility is down to a few miles as the sun burns through the smoke haze turning everything a yellow-gray color. 1.9 million acres have been blackened in the past few weeks and the prediction is that it will get a lot worse before it gets better. Interestingly, many ...
