Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #20: Dust Collection Finally Up and Running!

11-13-2014 06:35 PM by Paul Bucalo | 6 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I ordered a 2-1/2” universal port that I had hoped to use on the backside of the Delta 36-510 Bench Saw. With that beast being parked indefinitely due to a bad armature bearing, I can now use it for it’s original intent: a dust collection port for the yet-to-be-finished base for the Skilsaw 3410-02 that I started over a month ago. Along with the port I ordered a 10’ length of wire reinforced 2-1/2” dust collection hose. The hose was suppose to be ...

As I was driving to my client’s home last night, out in the country, I must have been daydreaming and i missed my turn. A few yards down the “new route”, I saw a pile of ginseng slats with a For Sale sign on them. A little voice in my head said “hmmm. I wonder how much they are selling for? I bet I could use them for something, perhaps a fence”. I turned around and headed down the right road and continued on with my daydreaming, whatever that was about at the ...

I’m feeling very thankful and grateful today. I just found out that a friend of mine, Bob, the guy who helped me turn my osage orange mallet, had a series of small strokes recently. His sight and mental capacity has been severely affected to the point where he can no longer drive or operate any kind of machinery. He says it is like there is a big black hole in his head. He has a thought and before it gets to his mouth to say what he wanted to say or to his hands to move the way he...

General Topics #4: Closet Catastrophe

03-30-2007 07:31 AM by Jeff | 10 comments »

The strangest thing happened to me Tuesday night when I came home from work. Our closet in the loft collapsed… It was nuts. My second actual project was a simple system of shelves and drawers made of Baltic Birch (Pics coming soon. I know, you’re not official until you post. Working on it.) that i put up in the top part of the closet to increase the storage and organization. The closet is only 5×2 x 7 and the top 20 inches were not really being utilized. So, I whipped this...

First Ever LIVE Interactive Wood Whisperer Episode

05-04-2007 04:59 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 6 comments »

On Sunday, May 6th at 4pm est/1pm pst, I am going to try a little experiment over at The Wood Whisperer site. We are attempting our first interactive live streaming episode. The episode itself will not be anything fancy. A quick shop tour and a Q&A session via a chat module. You can find all the details on my site: It should be a very cool, ground-breaking experiment. I see potential for live tool and technique demonstrations in the future. Neato! ...

First step back, and I stubbed my toe

06-02-2007 05:41 PM by Greg3G | 7 comments »

Well, I’m starting to recover. Many thanks to all of you who have sent me notes of encouragement, prayers and calls. It means a great deal to me. I am still very uncomfortable, but not too bad. It doesn’t hurt much more than it did before as long as I take my medication “as instructed by the Dr.” I got a lecture from my Paramedic brother that the doctors prescribe medication a certain way for a reason. Its easier to keep ahead of the pain than to chase it down. I agree...

Need help with wood decision... #1: Cherry or not to Cherry

09-18-2007 10:10 PM by woodchips | 13 comments »

Hi All, I just found, what seems to me to be a treasure trove of cherry. I just stopped today at a warehouse type resale store and found that they carry all kinds of wood. Mostly redoak but alot of cherry and some maple. Anyway I just wanted to throw this question out there to see if anyone could shed some light on it. One of the piles of cherry they have is probably about 100-150 BF of 4/4 stock. Each board is approx 8’ x 4”. They are selling it for $4.00 a board. The c...
