Tablesaw dust collection

08-28-2009 12:33 AM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody so I got my skil tablesaw yesterday and it took about 3 hours to set it up and I filmed the whole thing so part 1 of that series will be out next week. I made a few cuts with the saw and it is a nice saw the only problem is there is sooooooooo much dust that goes everywhere and I didnt realize this when I got it but the entire bottom of the saw is open so what I will probably do is take the saw off the stand mount it to a piece of plywood and put a dust port on that. The...

Spray Booth #4: Fan Unit

08-27-2009 10:20 PM by VerteramoFurniture7 | 3 comments »

The spray booth fan system is finished. Just like the dry rack I built this out of scrap wood. If you remember the pictures of the spray booth when I started the blog you can see that the right side of the spray booth was away from the wall. That was because I had an old bench there that I was just using to hold junk. After spraying some larger items I realized that I needed more room in the booth. Since the bench was old and just holding junk I decided to take it apart. After taking it...

Spray Booth #3: My $4 Drying Rack

08-27-2009 09:25 PM by VerteramoFurniture7 | 1 comment »

Hello All, It’s been a while since I talked about what I wanted to do to my spray booth/garage second bay. The first thing I did was create a drying rack. I wanted to make one that was cheap and able to take apart if I needed some room. I decided to put it behind my bench where I could get to it but it is also out of the way. The spot I decided to put it will work for now but once I put in the second garage door I will have to build a moveable one. I built this rack out of ...

Desk build #3: Nurse desk: Some glue-up

08-27-2009 07:31 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

Local County Fair

08-27-2009 03:40 PM by Greg3G | 9 comments »

Its been a pretty good summer….but not a lot of shop time. I have been spending a lot of time fishing this year, for some reason, just hadn’t the desire for the shop. Well, to make a long story short, I didn’t go to TN this month so I entered a few items in the local county fair. I am pretty pleased with the results. My Sapele side table – Blue ribbon My Walnut and Maple Jewelry box – Blue ribbon Small cutting board/Trivet – red ribbon Purple Hea...

Live Shop Cameras and Woodshop New

08-27-2009 03:03 PM by Chris Davis | 6 comments »

Woodshop News, a trade magazine called with some interest in my live video feed a couple months ago. I just checked and their digital version of their magazine and the story was posted on their website. It is a short but to the point article about the camera system and how it is used for both marketing and with customer relations. Check it out at Woodshop News . Get a peek into my shop at wwbeds.com<div></div>

Jacaranda natural edge end grain goblet

08-27-2009 08:06 AM by Gary Fixler | 16 comments »

Two weeks ago, on a whim, I got home after work, sliced off a piece of smaller branch from my large pile of smaller Jacaranda branches (~2.5”-3” dia.), and turned a bark-rimmed goblet. Sorry for the gratuitous lighting :) Let’s fly into it… The inside is smooth, and today, 15 days of air-drying on my dining room table later, it still has no checks, even around the pith inside, or on the bottom of the base! Here’s my hand for some b...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #4: Sides...

08-27-2009 07:16 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

I sanded the appropriate parts of the parts (don’t sand anything that mates with another part, it will round the edge over and ruin the joint). I then clamped up two sides at a time (because I only have enough clamps for one project). Then, I cut all the rabbets and dadoes in the sides to accept the drawer/shelf. I also plugged the dado on the legs. The next step is to make the mortises for the cross-pieces. Thoughts: address chip-out (tape, backer board, etc.), better edge trea...
