Dewalt 735 Chip Collection/Stand #1: Problem and Idea

04-13-2013 02:39 AM by Blackbear | 3 comments »

Recently I picked up the Dewalt 735 lunchbox planer. I’m still setting up my basement shop, so for a few months the planer was living on the concrete floor. Now if you’ve ever turned one of these planers on without any chip collection attached, you know what a mess it can make! I only did it once. After seeing the Dewalt chip collection accessory, DW7353, is no longer in production I decided to pick up a cheap cyclone and attach it to a shop vac. I bought the Rockler dust...

Head and footboard

04-27-2013 04:07 PM by BryanatWoodstock | 0 comments »

This weekend, I have been working on the head and footboards, cutting the side arcs out with a jig saw. I cut the headboard 1st, then used it to trace the cut line for the footboard.I also belt sanded the tops smooth. The Festool vac only captures about 1/2 the dust off the PC 3×21 sander. I drag the oscillating spindle sander over to the side of the Mini Max stroke sanders bench and adjust the the table height to match.

The agony, the agony, some more agony and the ecstasy #15: Soliloquy

05-14-2013 11:04 PM by 404 - Not Found | 8 comments »

I’m not that pretentious to claim to know Shakespeare, I just wanted to drop a little mindset thing in here, just before the last part(s) of this blog. So hit the back button now if you’re looking for woodworking tips or technical stuff. There’s none of that here. Don’t go posting complaints in the comments, although judging by the low comment count, I think that unlikely anyway (what?, is it me? was it something I said?) Standing at the planer or saw or router t...

Power Upgrade #7: And Yet More...

06-01-2013 03:24 PM by Nate Meadows | 10 comments »

Yep, even more hand digging. Seems like even though I investing in trenchers I still have to work:). No, really, I don’t mind. Digging is good exercise and mind therapy. At least most of this digging is easy. The dirt is already work those by the trenchers. Because of the time frame, the trenches just kept filling in. (Dogs, boys, wind, rain and gravity) I did have to dig some trenches that the trenchers just couldn’t get. However, I was running out of room to put all the dirt ...

Cabinet of curiosities #2: sketches

07-12-2013 01:32 AM by Porcupine | 1 comment »

This is Amelia typing this entry. I would like to show you how my daddy and I started out with our project. First i made a couple of rough sketches on graph paper to get an idea of how to make the cabinet. Then after making the sketches we decided to make a three dimensional scale model in sketchup. We figured out the sizes by looking at the human skull in the cabinet and then measuring our own heads. Daddy’s head was about six inches from the top of his head to the upper part of...

The Phoenix Project #2: Figured out what to do with the Slab of Old Growth Redwood

08-14-2013 04:44 PM by KomputerMan | 5 comments »

You may remember that a few weeks ago I made some posts about this remarkable slab of old growth redwood that ended up in my garage. If you want to see more pictures of the Slab take a look at this 90 second video I posted on the YouTube EZInlays channel. The slab is now in sitting in my front room and not in the garage but that is beside the point. The point is I now know what I am going to do with the Slab but I need help doing it. I...

Rushing through the home repairs. #13: Dining room, check. Moving on to living room..

08-28-2013 05:11 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

So the paint and trim in the dining room is done. Admittedly I still have the old bright brass lighting installed as I have yet to fund the new chandelier, that is coming, but I need to keep on with what I have supplies for… The next item on my list was drywall repair and paint in living room. First off I hit some small holes in the sheet rock with drywall mud, and let it dry over… Next was the less fun part. Move all of the furnishings that I could out of half of the liv...

Sprint to Finish #2: progress continues

09-15-2013 05:28 PM by Chris Cook | 2 comments »

I wanted to go with a technique I have been playing with where I miter every edge. I just made a new 45 degree sled for my saw and made a few test boxes that gave me some confidence in getting all the 45 degree corners right. after cutting all the 45s for the sides, I taped things together to test the fit: I then made the top 45 degree cuts in preparation for the lid cuts: As everybody knows, when you do this: If you are off 1/2 degree on all your 45s, you get gaps....
