iPhone passive amplifiers

04-28-2016 02:51 AM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

I saw a project posted the other day about a passive amplifier for your cell phone. I liked the idea and I’m always looking for small projects to use up the smaller scraps from other projects. It seems like I’ve got a constantly growing collection of boards that are too small to easily find a use for, but too big to feel good about getting rid of. So when I saw the passive amplifiers, I immediately thought about my growing scrap pile and my wife and two daughters who are cons...

Making all wood folding knives #1: The first twelve parts

04-27-2016 11:53 PM by poospleasures | 6 comments »

Several of you have asked for instruction for making the all wood folding knives I,ve been doing for a number of years. Hope I can give that instruction through this blog series. If to many get fed-up with this please let me know to stop. Starting today 4/27/16 we will begin. It would probably be a good idea to have a folding pocket knife handy to be able to look to see the pieces we are talking about. I will be making three knives at this time. #1 is choosing the material. You can make the ...

Tilt-Out Wastebasket Cabinet #2: Assembly

04-27-2016 09:40 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Had to narrate this one. In this video I cover the final cutting and assembly of the wastebasket cabinet. I used pocket holes because they are easy and sturdy enough for this application. To further strengthen the cabinet, I added a back to keep it from racking. I struggled a bit with the part that hods the trash can, and have since changed the design. Plans are located here: for watching! View on YouTube Instagram: h...

Updated Dust Collection #2: Blast Gates

04-27-2016 07:53 PM by Redoak49 | 2 comments »

With the updated system, I needed 6” blast gates for my shop. I was not very happy with the metals ones and the price of them. So, like others, I decided to make my own. For the gates, I would need to have one side be able to mate to the SDR35 6” wyes that I was using so this required a securely fitting the 6” pipe. In addition, I needed to be able to make accurate slide parts and various inlet parts. To do this, I made several templates which were sized to produce ...

Updated Dust Collection #1: Ceiling Mounts

04-27-2016 07:31 PM by Redoak49 | 0 comments »

I have recently started upgrading my shop dust collection from a 1.5 HP Jet to a Oneida Super Dust Gorilla. The old system was piped with 4” PVC but this was not adequate for the new cyclone system. Looking at the various options, I went with 6” SDR35 PVC piping and fittings. Fortunately, I have a Menards which stocks both the 6” pipe and the fittings. My dust collector is in my garage and then piped into my shop across the ceiling. I did not like the metal strap han...

End Table #5: Rails assembly

04-27-2016 04:03 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

As you can see I’ve glued in my oak boards that will be used to support the top of the chore so when it opens it doesn’t fall out or lean out. ! These pieces right here are for the bottom supporters of the chores, however I haven’t glued them in yet because I have to make divots in them so they fit indulgently in the frame. The next thing I will do is make the chore itself.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1725: Creating Every Day

04-27-2016 01:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

OK.  It may appear that I have been 'slacking'. Between cutting mountains of ornaments, having a cold/flu for a couple of weeks, and having some family things to take care of, it may seem that I have somewhat fallen out of the habit of posting here each day.There may be some merit to that, as it is no secret that I haven't been here every day as I have for the last several years, but that doesn't really mean that I am not creating. I just try my best to keep my posts...
