Mitre Saw Dust Collection

10-08-2017 04:16 PM by Manitario | 7 comments »

Quick video of my simple MS dust collection. The constant cough that I had after making a lot of cuts on the MS was what drove me to get a DC in the first place. After experimenting with a variety of hoods and DC setups and I found that the hood design doesn’t really matter too much if you have a powerful DC. As you can see in the video, the particle count only increases from 190 to 520 after a series of cuts. Still need to make a few adjustments to the design (want to improve the colle...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #4: More gluing

03-03-2015 02:58 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

Since I began woodworking almost five years ago and slowly building my shop, one of the things that has proven difficult for me to prioritize was buying clamps. We all know the old saying “You can’t have enough clamps”. And while this is true, the projects that I have mostly done didn’t require very many clamps. And the larger projects I did, I just made do with what I had. This bench project has spurred me to start buying parallel clamps, but at $40 + a pop and with s...

Before the class started I had to finish the inside of the boxes with French Polish, before the room was taken over by the students. There is different way of holding the pieces with nails bent in places Or with small wood blocks I like to have it lay out...

Shop Re-model

03-09-2015 03:48 AM by Woodpecker23 | 6 comments »

So I am very new to this. My first ever blog on any site, not to mention my first day as a member of this site. Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking about my next project, along with creating a lot of plans using sketchup. I have been torn to either remodel my shop to make it more of and efficient work space, which leads me to the money aspect of it. I don’t have a ton of extra cash to fund the project, so my thought was to us some of my project plans I have been working on ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #44: It's not only Women allowed to changed their minds!

03-14-2015 11:58 PM by PhilBello | 9 comments »

I said my next project was going to be the mobile Mitre saw stand, but as I am having trouble sourcing some parts, I decided I would make a wheelbarrow Planer Stand, I had seen it on Popular Woodworking and decided it would be ideal for me, as I often have to cart my Planer to various parts of the property, so a fixed one in the workshop was not for me. It only takes a couple of hours to make, and although it is slightly bigger than I envisaged, it is sturdy and the right height, it will g...

Band saw safety - graphic photos

03-16-2015 06:11 PM by woodmaker | 19 comments »

Well I recently had an incident using my bandsaw. The blade jamed in the wood, flipped it into my hand and broke left pinky and ring finger. Both fingers were gashed open by the bladeThat was last week, I went to the scene of the crime and looked like things over. The blade is still embedded in the wood, and wrapped completely around it. Which was better than wrapped around me. My best estimation is I was too lazy to change the blade. The blade is only 1/4” thick and th...

My First Exercise In Boulle Marquetry #1: A Day With The Shipwright!

03-19-2015 06:36 PM by Luke Addington | 5 comments »

I spent the day with Paul Miller yesterday and got my first taste of Boulle Marquetry. I have been interested in marquetry for about 4 years now. This was a huge learning experience. The Chevalet was very intuitive to use. I found it pretty easy to stay dead on the lines (this speaks more to the fact that this was a simple exercise and an excellent tool than any kind of skill I might possess, those tiny details in the coyotes tail were the most difficult part to cut). Sand shading and ...

Photographing long or tall projects. #2: Adjusting Your Photos.

03-22-2015 09:34 PM by Druid | 4 comments »

I mentioned in the first part of this Blog that I would be adding some information on Adjusting Your Photos, so here it is. This section starts with “Step 8” as a continuation to the first section, but these instructions can be used independently from the Panorama function in the event that you have any photos that would benefit from adjustments such as exposure, contrast, highlights, dark areas, etc. Once again, I will mention that the required software is already installed on yo...

I'll get there yet! #2: I'll get there yet! #2

03-27-2015 03:24 PM by artsyfartsy | 7 comments »

OK, I’m stumped again! Ugh. I’m not sure how to continue this blog. Is this how or do I do something else? I’m getting frustrated. I wanted to know also, can I upload other projects I have completed to my projects page or do I submit them one at a time in the new project part? I know I’m old but, sheesh……...
