Adding a double strike plate to the new shop door.

1592 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 2 comments »

I have lived in my house almost 9 years, the previous owner built the house and the shop. I have always wanted to change the man door on my shop that leads to my house. The old owner put a hollow door and a dead bolt as the only lock system. He also clad the outside of the door in scraps of sheet metal. I recently bought a prehung 6 panel steel entry door to replace the cheaper ugly old one. Being that my friend and I often install stereo equipment in customers cars at my shop I needed a more...

Planes restored - Because I can. #2: Making a knob without a lathe

1153 days ago by Don W | 2 comments »

Today I needed to replace a missing knob on a cheaper #4 I wanted to tune and get working. I wanted to make one, but I don’t have a lathe. I figured there had to be a way to do it with my drill press. I tried drilling a hole in a block and locking it down with nuts on a threaded rod, but the nuts kept coming loose, even though I doubled them to lock them. I knew I needed something a little more substantial until I can pick up a lathe. I found an old drill that didn’t work anym...

Router Table #4: Finally Finished

1095 days ago by Manitario | 2 comments »

Well, like many of my projects, I got about 80% finished, got distracted by everyday life, and work on the router table ground to a halt. Finally have got around to finishing, stretching a few hours of work into a few weeks. Drawer fronts are pine (cheapest wood I had on hand) finished with several coats of wipe on poly. Knobs are from HD, finished with the same stain I used on the face frame. The central door is 1/4” acrylic with holes to allow airflow through the 5” port on the ...

Quarter Sawn White Oak - repair/refinish/new leaves

1081 days ago by rsain | 2 comments »

Greetings all, Wanted to post a little about the recent project. It’s not done yet – but wanted to go over some details here. First: Project is an early 1900’s dining room table. Needed some repair work and needed two leaves built since the old ones were not original and not well done. Client wanted me to refinish the entire table as well. He also wanted a color match. I decided to do the leaves first so I could do the color match before I stripped the whole thing. ...

Fighting Dust #10: Blast Gate - V. Beta

933 days ago by ChunkyC | 2 comments »

Well that was easy and it’s Bloodhound approved! I wanted to try to see how hard it was to make my own blast gates. Pretty simple actually. I did spend some time to make certain that everything was a good fit but it still went pretty fast. This is a “through” gate meaning that the slide can be pulled from either side. I cut two holes in a piece of 1/2” ply. One just big enough for a 4” S&D coupling and the other for 3” DWV coupling. T...
