Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #7 Hey, ladies and gents! Last week, on the lowboy project, we had shaped one leg and had gone through the initial shaping, step by step. http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad116/woodwokerplus/Charles%205/compleatedfett.jpg After working and re-working the legs to be nearly finished, I find in this week’s webisode that I should have left the area, from the knees up, roughed in (as Charles said in an earlier webisode), due to the upcoming st...

I bought some goodies yesterday from Rockler. I used the Rockler Gift Card I won from doing the 2009 Fall Build Challenge. the sawdustcronicals.com I bought a combo water stone 1000/6000 ( was reading around and people are saying that this is a good grit to start with, if you can only afford one), and a jig to hold the blades while I give honing a try. I also got a nice Shop Dust Collection Expandable hose and a good system for hooking it up to my machines. Lets face it, looks really ne...
Okay so the discussion / future planning of dust collection really kind of muddied up the waters. I still think I would be better off coming out of the DC, and separator with 5”, and then reducing at the Wye to 4” going to the tool. My biggest concern is providing enough air flow to pull from BOTH the top, AND bottom of my table saw. I MAY just end up going to the separator and out with 5” to the 5×4x4 Y fitting then into the 4” S&D for the main circuits, and ...
Threaded insert jig – HOW TO MAKEHow to get the dam thing straight in!Ok, not a big problem, but a problem! Here are the challange. Idea!

Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #19: I HATE POSTS MADE OF LINKS.....it's not etiquette, it's about marketing...........
In some sense, we are all in the business of attracting attention, everyone wants their posts to be read. If you attract attention to your post, and then get people to read it, then you maximize your impact. That is, you satisfy yourself, and you satisfy your readers. A win/win situation. So here is why I don’t read posts that depend mostly upon links. Here is why I prefer, and push, for the whole post to be in one place, whether it is a review, blog, or whatever. If you want a lo...
Ok so here is the blog to go along with my lastest project. I really wanted to do something in the shop from start to finish yesterday. I was cutting up some wood I got from work due to storm damage and decided to cut a few otherpieces that have been floating around in my garage for a while. A bandsaw box is something I have been wanting to really try for a while (made a few experiments) So here is the process I took from a fresh log. Sorry did nto get nearly as many pics as I guess I should ...
