02-11-2011 03:41 PM by steliart | 0 comments »

Mini Cyclone Dust Collection Bucket Few friends message me and asked me if I can post this project also here in LJs than where I have it, because is easier for them to look at the project, so here it is.My cyclone dust collector bucket is very inexpensive and efficient. It only cost me under 20 Euros (about 25 U.S. dollars), easy to build in a weekend, and it can run with any normal house vacuum cleaner (recommended a 1600W+). Please follow this LINK to view the project. ThanksSteli

Makers & Woodworkers

02-11-2011 02:42 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 1 comment »

My recent www.wwoodshopcowboy.com post on teaching students to saw has been picked up for wider distribution…twice. Wordpress.com made it one of their “freshly pressed” posts, but I’m most happy with Makezine.com making a little dough on it…I made the post to be part of their Woodworking Skill Set – and they put it out there. Thanks for the lumberjocks that helped me out with the post here – Your input helps keep my kids safe. —WW

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #253: Planning Ahead

02-11-2011 02:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am pleased to report that I am done preparing the two projects to be sent out (Finally!) Yesterday I got over the hurdle of finishing writing the instructions, as well as getting lots of miscellaneous things done. On some days my self-discipline is not as strong as others, but I really stuck to it yesterday and did get things finished. Woven in between accomplishing that, we had two printers humming and printing out the copies of our patterns to take with us to sell at the show. We re...

carving "Thunderbolt" #9: Mechanics completed !

02-11-2011 07:10 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

Thanks to unusual snow-fall amounts in Arkansas, I’ve had a few days off and have been able to get the mechanics and a good portion of the base completed. I am a better wood-carver than I am a wood-worker, but I keep trying, thanks to all the inspiring projects people post on Lumberjocks! The construction and design are pretty simple, which is about all I can handle. I wanted a base that would be steady, when the toy is cranked, and I wanted it to be a little tall, to attract attent...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #8: Day 2 went well!

02-11-2011 06:37 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Hello Again, Well after a rough day at work I was really looking forward to today’s course…then I had to go back to work! But its okay I still made it to class early! I’m 2 for 2! Today Ryan demonstrated the bandsaw, disk and spindle sanders. Pretty cool, a huge bandsaw. I will have to measure it’s resaw capacity as it looked about 12 or 13 inches but very deep from the blade to the arm and a huge table. After the demo’s we picked our projects and began ...

Radial Arm Saw Refurb #3: More disassembly and some cleaning

02-11-2011 05:51 AM by HokieMojo | 7 comments »

Well, Neil has been making such good progress on his blog, it inspired me to get some work done. His work is here (but seriously Neil, these should be in blogs so I don’t miss em’ (-: )part 1part 2part 3part 4 So my plan was to build a Mr Sawdust table. The problem is that the instructions to size the table require you to measure the travel in the arm. Since my saw was 80% disassembled, I figured a change of plans was in order. One of the few problems with my old saw was t...

Oops, I didn't know

02-11-2011 05:20 AM by davidroberts | 5 comments »

So I promised to cut some one foot diameter circles out of hardboard for my kids school project. I needed to make a circle cutting jig to use on the bandsaw. Something quick, nothing fancy, a one time use jig. I just needed to hold a couple of stops on the underside so I pulled out my 18 gauge brad nailer. Easy peasy. But wait, what happens to a nail gun that has been sitting in a garage at between 30F to 40F for the past few days. Well mine started leaking air after about 5 shots. So a...
