It’s finished and I’ve very pleased. I also moved the light gun down to play shooting games on it as well. It’s powered by a Playstation 3, and it also makes a nice seat for any games in general. I bought a 37” 1080p LCD off Newegg for $450. The wheel was used for about $200 and the speakers were $75. I had the PS3, but I bought another used one to replace it for $190. All-told I have about $1000 in it. Here’s a couple videos I shot of ...
Guess it’s not technically a table per se maybe a downdraft table top. My last table just so happened find it’s way to the burn pile, it was a total pos and needed to be permanently retired. The dims are roughly 36”x24”x7-1/4” and made from 1/2” BB ply, 1/4” pegboard, and 1/4” hardboard (bottom). The dust collector is connected to the table via a 3” Johnny Flange. I modified the flange by cutting some of the “flange” part...
My dreams are slowly coming true as I am starting to get a lot of work and prospects. Surprisingly, I’ve got a custom furniture job as well. This week I finished up the vinyl siding on the room addition I’ve been working on. This coming week I will be finishing the fascia board, doing the plumbing for the bathroom, and insulation. It isn’t custom cabinetry or furniture but it has certainly opened some doors… Thursday evening I went across the highway to scope out...
Today i will be attepting to adjust the new dovetail jig and then cutting all the drawer sides, fronts, and backs. There are 8 drawers to make annd then fit to the cabinets using Blumotion drawer slides, that Rockler shipped without directions thank you very much, but the new Leigh 12” jig will prove to be a nice addition to the shop as soon as i figure out how to use it. Here is a pic of the new jig after the assembly was completed.Not the assembly time measured in beer is 2 12oz cans!
Yo whats up everybody this last week I have been trying out some new router bits and yesterday I started working on another book case for my dads new office. Out of all the shops this is the first one that has a real office in it next to the shop. So the book case im building is 28 in tall 20 in wide and 7 in deep. The sides are short enough that I can use dados to hold the shelves but I dont have a dado stack at my house so I used a standard tablesaw blade to make the dados. It took about 20...
So we are having this big bonfire tomorrow like we do every year on my grandparent’s property, and my buddy and I started rounding up all our firewood and burn brush that’s been gathered up over the year there. Sometime this year a HUGE cottonwood got struck by lightning and split in two as it fell. The tree was probably 4’ in diameter. Anyways, we started cutting up chunks of the outer branches and some of the small trees it dragged down with it when it fell. This is one...
Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #5: THE SWITCH - functionally complete, outstanding performance
DELTA CONTRACTOR SAW ON-OFF SWITCH REPLACEMENT – PRECISION SCRAPBOX REPLACEMENT PURPOSE: Replace my current table saw (TS) switch with a safer, more convenient switch mechanism. BACKGROUND: My saw has (had) the stock toggle switch mounted on the cabinet that was hard to find, occasionally required a look, right behing the saw blade, and definitely dangerous. I almost bought a couple of switches I saw at Rockler, Woodcraft, etc on the internet. But they didn’t grab me. They all see...

Carving 187, Begining Carving I am also taking the begining carving class a Palomar College. This short video shows the begining of carving our final project for the first semester. It is a Newport Shell Modified. It does not have as many rays as the traditional Newport Shell and has some other small improvements so we can learn other carving techniques. Newport Shell (modified)
I am being tested. I KNOW it’s a test. You see, I’m all for conservation and preserving the environment. I preach (and try to practice) a philosophy of live and let live, but some thing are just beyond acceptable, like mosquitoes, and bees IN the workshop. Not just any old honey bee, but the African (killer) honey bee. These guys are not friendly, and have been known to attack people using electrical tools because the EM field disturbs them. Anyway, there is a wild hive ...
