Build: Dust Separator

02-12-2016 07:12 AM by TabLeft | 0 comments »

View on YouTube This is an easy-to-build dust separator with a baffle. It works because the incoming air is forced around the outside wall, where the heavier dust and chips fall into the large trash can below. When driven with a blower like I use, the baffle removes the need for a standalone dust collection system (which not everyone has the money, space, or power to accommodate). When used with a shop-vac, this simple dust collector will greatly prolong the life of your filters and preve...

Making Two Sets of Matching Heirloom Saws #1: The 10" Dovetail Saw

02-12-2016 04:20 AM by summerfi | 6 comments »

This blog entry is a continuation of an earlier blog post titled Making Two Sets of Heirloom Saws: The Gent's Saw and The Table Saw. The making of these saws is an ideal topic for a blog series, but I unfortunately didn’t think of that when I made the original post. I’ve now turned this into a series, but there is no way to go back and incorporate the original post into the series. That is why this post shows as #1 of the series even though it is about the third saws in the sets....

Shop Upgrades #13: More reorganinzation

02-12-2016 01:53 AM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Band Saw and Lath area coming together nicely. Still have more track wall to install and some overhead shelves. Temporarily moved all the sanders next to biscuit and dowel cutting tools while I brainstorm the sanding/downdraft table I’ll be building this summer. Hand tool workbench cleaning up nice, but think I’ll be moving chisels and planes to under homemade workbench with twin screw tail vice. Chemicals and safety equipment cabinets have stayed in plac...

Cedar Strip Canoe Build # 33 Inside Fills Done

02-12-2016 01:40 AM by farmerdude | 2 comments »

I finally got some work done today. The first order of business is to sand the fills from yesterday. Unfortunately it’s all hand sanding. The points are the hardest. As it gets wider I can use a sponge. Most of the fills today are because of a mistake I made earlier. I did not get the bead and cove joints correct. The strips just don’t meet tight enough. In a perfect world I would have two router tables so I could adjust the set up until there was a perfec...

Glue pot #1: Finally getting hot in Copenhagen

02-11-2016 06:29 PM by mafe | 6 comments »

Glue potFinally getting hot in Copenhagen This is a little love story, so don’t expect an experts advice, just a grown up boy seeing things that amaze him.I will just show a few pictures on my way of restoring and bringing two old pots back to life here.As always I take my detours and a few of the pictures will not be sharp. ;-) So this was where it started back in 2012, I fell in love with a old glue pot and made my bid online.Judging from the photos the inner and outer pots were...

Cutting Small Parts On The Miter Saw

02-11-2016 04:47 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

In this video I share how I cut small parts on the miter saw. I am sure this one will be cause for active commentary from the safety police and maybe the hand tool junkies for not using a fancy hand saw to cut small pieces. Well, this is the way I do it in the American Craftsman Workshop. Because if the tool doesn’t make any noise and throw a rooster tail of sawdust, how am I supposed to know that any work is getting done? I hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful;) Rem...

Shop Remodel #43: Video Killed the Blog Star

02-11-2016 04:09 PM by bearkatwood | 1 comment »

So I finally got the video done for the tool cabinet. It was a wild experience to work on this and share it with all of you. I look forward to years of more projects. Just to show you all my humble side and that I am not above begging, please subscribe and get as many friends who like woodworking to subscribe as well. ;) I had a blast making the cabinet, but I have to tell you that the video took longer and was harder to do for me. I am just not an actor, film maker and editor. I a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1695: Playing "Catch-Up"

02-11-2016 04:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

These past few weeks have been quite busy. While I have always been pretty busy and had several things on the go at once, it seems that lately things have taken on a different 'tone' of busy. It is hard to describe. It is just a different 'feel' as to the things that have demanded my time. It is exciting and I will admit a little bit scary at the same time. When I take the time to actually asses things and consider what is going on, I realize that these new demands are just pa...

Simple Jigs and Techniques #13: Making Fine Dust for Marquetry Mastic

02-11-2016 07:05 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

This is a little videoI did last summer after having a “Doh!” moment. Very fine sanding dust is difficult to generate and contain in a clean, uncontaminated condition. The go to method has been hand sanding with ~220 grit paper.This is just a little trick that came to me while I was sanding a spindle one day. I thought it was worth sharing. Thanks for lookng in.
