With all my wood turning and saw dust that is generated in the shop that accumulate rather quickly I needed something that wont clog my vacuum every time is vacuum. I was searching around in the Google Search engine and found The Dust Deputy . I used a Home Depot bucket and my Ridgid vacuum cleaner. This system has proven to very satisfactory and does a great job. I almost never have any thin in vacuum cleaner. I just mounted the system on a simple 2×4 and plywood cart.

A woodburning project I did long ago, that had too many photos, so now it's a blog. ;)

08-06-2009 09:15 PM by TiffanyJeanne | 18 comments »

I made this wood-burned paddle for my mother-in-law/father-in-law’s living room in like, 2002, I think. I took a lot of photos of it, and I couldn’t bring myself to choose only six for a project post. Plus, this is so old, it’s better as a blog. I just used a standard burning tool, with no fancy attachments… just a fine point. I love to wood-burn! It’s hanging in their living room under a shelf with a ship on it. I hope you like it! :) ...

Optimal Cutting with minimum scrap - iPad app

11-02-2011 12:31 PM by SmartCutter | 18 comments »

I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap. It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...

"Art Box" Tutorial #10: Pin Hinges

07-22-2009 03:56 PM by Andy | 18 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...

Every morning when I wake up my whole body hurts. Even the bottom of my feet hurt. I shuffle around the house like Sand Paper Sally. It’s no wonder my floors have no finish left on them. When I die, My tombstone will read: ” Here lies Sand Paper Sally…”

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

Sketchup - I'm glad I took the time to learn it.

10-16-2008 09:25 PM by pashley | 17 comments »

I admit, I had a heck of a time when I first started with Sketchup; I was not getting it – and I have been working with software for 20 years. But I saw the value in Sketchup. I could create my own WW plans, and manipulate them like crazy to make sure everything fit, and that particular woods and finishes would look good together – before ever cutting a single piece of wood. I bought a “for Dummies” book, and watched some YouTube videos; I tried playing with it o...

Kitchen table

09-30-2017 08:24 PM by AandCstyle | 17 comments »

Apparently, LumberJocks is adding links to advertising that I didn’t include. The only links I added in this blog are on the word “design” and “Talarico Hardwoods” Obviously, we wanted a great looking table so after a bit of searching, I found a design= that we both like. I have read about Talarico Hardwoods and since we are relatively close, I thought it would be a fun trip to see what he has to offer. OMG!! I was in heaven, a kid in a candy store, what c...
