Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #7: Other Projects - Outfeed Cart

10-07-2018 07:32 PM by Bluenote38 | 1 comment »

Life isn’t linear. Nothing, at least in my life, follows a straight line or well-marked path. On the way to working on the Tool cabinet several other projects happened. I’ll start with the Outfeed Cart. I’ve had all of my sanding supplies just stuffed in a box – actually three boxes and I’ve long wanted a place for everything so I can find it, get it, and store it. Because of my situation I need a couple of features 1) it had to be mobile. 2) it has two slip under my Table Saw wing and 3...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #6: Lower Case Assembly

10-07-2018 06:26 PM by Bluenote38 | 0 comments »

Ok – It’s been awhile since I had the chance to work on my Tool Cabinet. Last November to be exact. But, the project is underway once again. Getting back into any long shelved project is always a challenge, time passes, things are forgotten, pieces are mislaid, and parts are used for other purposes. No different on this project but after a week of excavating, rooting, and cleaning I managed to identify and collect all of the critical parts and pieces. As I stood staring at the pile of lumb...

Kelly's Shop Karts

04-04-2018 03:50 AM by Kelly | 1 comment »

This is about building simple, but VERY strong mobile shop carts using a single sheet of plywood. These will, easily, support 300 pounds. The one in the picture with a cabinet on top held nearly 500 pounds without so much as a creak or a groan. From start to finish, building one of these will consume about a day. I have eight of these carts in my shop. Each sized according to the use to which it will be put. For example, the carts in the picture measure about 24” wide by 48...

yet another shop vacuum cart

04-17-2017 10:39 PM by metolius | 1 comment »

ShopNotes No. 109 has a shop vacuum station with a dust deputy that I have long marked to give a try. Having a mini cv06 clearvue on a 30 gallon drum attached to a hugely barrelled shopvac/blower required a few changes. I wanted a way to conveniently separate the drum from the cyclone for emptying. There are many examples of different configurations I found to do this with a magnetic lifts of the top, or a leveraged lift of the drum, etc. While ho-humming on how to go about it, I h...

Portable Cyclone cart #1: Finished

02-04-2016 10:10 PM by MikeMcK | 3 comments »

After hours (no make that days) of trolling Pinterest looking for ideas for my Dust Deputy I came up with this design. My main goal was to eliminate as many 90 degree turns between the cyclone and the shop-vac.

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #22: Triple-Stack Trailer Modification

09-08-2015 02:25 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview The three layout boats are done and we modified my brother’s trailer to haul all three of them in a stacked configuration. Our set-up requires a frame to hold three boats, a set of ramps, and a cart. Frame The frame is constructed with pressure treated 2×4’s held together with bolts and lag screws. Each bunk has a strip of wood that mates with the outside edge of the runners of the layout boat. This helps keep the boat aligned on the bunks. The frame i...

Project Musings and Unfortunate Interruptions

07-01-2014 07:21 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

I got a start on a whirligig for the 2014 Whirligig Wars. After the proof of concept, I got a few of the parts cut out and then decided some of the parts need to be out of thinner wood. Then a friend of ours passed away. This friend was what I call our church widow. She has absolutely no family, but a prepaid arrangement to pay for the cremation. I decided I should use the walnut drawer fronts I found to make an appropriate box for her remains. Our pastor will be receiving the ashes thi...

Outdoor Movie Projector Caddy

01-22-2014 12:29 PM by bbenack00 | 0 comments »

Our family likes to have outdoor movies on warm Friday nights. I’ve already built a projector ‘screen’ (piece of plywood painted white and framed with stained deck wood), and have had to construct a projector base out of a plastic storage bin (which contained the projector, the large speaker, and associated cordage) flipped upside-down and propped up to the appropriate angle. My thought is to build the attached image out of PTL. There are no measurements yet as I’m ...

Shop Vacumn Cart #4: Day 4 - Final

05-20-2013 01:36 AM by Harley130 | 2 comments »

After not getting to work at all Saturday in the shop because of family commitments, I got to work on my project most of the afternoon today. I wasn’t feeling to spunky after not getting back home till almost midnight last night. That was two hours after my normal bedtime. I trudged along and manged to complete the project and declared Victory at about 7:30 pm. I added an additional modification at the last moment for three more attachment storage holes and then decided to use a tub...
