Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Shop stuff #34: The final episode

01-26-2016 09:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I finally got around to editing and completing the video series on the essential oil cabinet that I made for my son for Christmas. Lightworks is still a bit of a chore and will be for a while yet, but it is not locking up and being frustrating like Windows Movie Maker was. I still have a long way to go, but it is fun learning. My son liked the cabinet and most people who have laid eyes on it do to. It was a big complex job and I find that shooting video while working makes it go almost ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #69: Towel Rack

01-26-2016 01:04 AM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

The weather here in Colombia is such that, even when it is winter it remains at least warm, we have no heating, and drying clothes, bedding etc. is no problem, we have a covered drying area outside, but after a shower, my towel until now, has been draped over anything available upstairs, where it has dried but looked unsightly, it was time to do something about it. I pondered on design, as I had some 1”dowel and plywood, but in the end went with trusty 2×4!! For the first time I...

The cabinets are made out of furniture grade poplar and its dimensions are 36” wide 40” tall and 24” deep.. I planing...

A very pleasant surprise

01-24-2016 03:34 PM by Jeff2016 | 10 comments »

For the past few days I have been in the shop cleaning, organizing, and router planing stock to build my work bench. Yesterday I came across a few things to part with via Craigslist and a few odds and ends for the scrap pile.One of my neighbors stopped over when he seen my old jeep with the back opened to my workshop door. We chatted for a bit, and he asked if he could send an old piece of junk with me to the scrap yard. Needless to say I found myself quite shocked when he thumped this dow...

Pine tool box, Stanley Style #3: In and out of the clamps

01-20-2016 04:23 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Busy day….busy,busy,...busy…had a bunch of clamps lined up, Elmer’s was awaiting to go. had a small “acid” brush to spread the stuff around, and a BIG hammer to assist. One would think that the glue would let the parts slide together better…..nope. After banging things into place, and making even a Squid blush….Finally got it glued up. I did check for square….just wasn’t any room to add THAT diagonal clamp… Now, about tha...

Shop stuff #31: Creating another video despite Microsoft

01-16-2016 11:47 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, fighting Windows Movie Maker and getting another one done. After three tries with Microsoft Support, including giving them remote access, I get told that WMM is not compatible with Win 10, and that just sucks. It keeps freezing up on me and I lose a lot of work and Microsoft just does not care. Of course the suggested I could buy something at the app store….yeah, right, I’ve seen the old bait and switch before. I have downloaded a free version of Lightworks but have not installed it yet...

Pine Project, 4x4s #5: Mortises chopped, a bit of glue spread around

01-07-2016 10:23 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some say Pine is easy to work with a chisel…some say something else….Anyway, laid out the first of 8 mortises And chopped for a bit. needed a few tools for the job. Since none of the tenons are the same thickness….different width chisels. Needed a way to keep track of which part when where…..went upstairs, and grabbed a black sharpie. Since this was the first mortise, a single spot on each part. Then, all I have to do is set a 1 spot tenon in a 1 spot...
