I have sleep apnea and currently just use a simple stand for my CPAP machine. I thought is would be wise to build a nightstand to put it in to help reduce the noise of the pump hum to help give my wife a good nights sleep as well so I designed a nightstand to contain my CPAP machine in a felt lined area to make it virtually sound proof as well as a drawer to contain all the spares and bits and bobs. Have a look.
I start out with some 12/4 walnut, and cut 4 legs, making sure I use rift sawn lumber. Using a turning that I made for a template, I turn all 4 legs. Then I start on the joinery. This is traditional mortise and tenon joinery throughout, and I show an easy way to get nice tight fitting tenons. The front bottom rail uses a double tenon while the top uses a dovetail to hold everything together. The most unusual thing in this video is that there a shot where you can almost see me smile! Almost…. ...
As I mentioned in my Cajon project post, I had some trouble cutting a circle to PERFECTLY fit the inside diameter of the drum, so I stopped for a couple of weeks to figure out how to cut exactly the circle size I wanted, and if too big, how to cut it down. I had been using a piece of melamine coated particle board with lots of holes drilled in it for many years and it worked just fine. But you can’t drill small holes right next to each other in particle board, ...
Setting up a workshop on a budget. I have been working in wood since my early twenties. Owned and operated a five man custom cabinet shop, setup a toy company, and just made gifts for Christmas presents over those years. Some of my shops have been operated in small as a space as 8’x12’ in a space on a warehouse floor, to an industrial size of 3,000 sq ft in a private owned building with a storefront.Enough about that, my latest shop is setup not too mass produce or create a company but j...
Hi my fellow crafters.I am going to be doing a series every week (as time allows) on how to setup a workshop, what tools to buy to get started, some tips on what is the “best way to do this or that”, ideas on how to improve your tools and get the most out of them. I plan to share what I have been learning over these last twenty years doing toys, custom cabinets, libraries bookcases, and other things I have learned by the school of hard knocks. Please check back each week to see ...

I wanted to finally do a review of my bandsaw, so I asked the gang here what sort of things should I be testing? After receiving the replies I set out to see what my band saw would do. No so fast there! When I know the saw is capable of re-sawing a 2×4, but when I tried raising the blade guard to do just that, it topped out at about 3 1/4. I knew this was not right. After a few minutes I identified the problem. The upper blade guide assembly was too far forward and was hitting t...
I’ve been thinking that I’d like to post a review of my Skil benchtop bandsaw. The thing is, I don’t use it all that much and I’d hate to misrepresent the tool one way or the other based on my moderate use of it. So what sort of ‘tests’ should I put the saw through to see how it performs? I also don’t have a lot of experience on the saw and don’t want that to color my review.
