Hints and Tips #14: KISS System Dust Collector

10-02-2015 05:07 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I don’t like the idea of breathing in dust while running my machinery any more than the next guy (er, woodworker.) A few years ago, when we finally stopped using our last box fan, I hid it away, having an idea to re-purpose it down the road. So a few weeks ago, I decided to take another step towards a safer shop. I dug out the fan and cleaned it up. After checking that it still ran OK, I went out and bought one of those filters for forced hot air heating systems and installed it on...

Hints and Tips #12: DIY Bench Cookies

09-21-2015 07:24 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

Somewhere recently I was watching a video where Bench Cookies were mentioned. I then ran down into my shop and poured out the contents of my ‘wood wheels’ which are mainly the plugs I save from my hole saw. I had 4 plugs about 2 inches in diameter and close to 1 inch thick. I pulled out a place mat that I saved from the trash. It’s made from shelf liner material. I glued the plugs onto the placemat with contact cement and trimmed them out. Now I have 4 bench cookies...

Hints and Tips #9: Occasional Pocket Hole Joinery

08-27-2015 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

While I cannot be called a die hard fan of pocket hole joinery, I’ll admit it has some uses. Such a use came about today as I was completing a project (to be posted in a day or two). This method of making pocket holes without an expensive jig I saw in a video by Steve Carmichael. (the link starts the video right at the part I’m talking about). [Above] These are the tools I used to do this procedure. Your choices may vary. I’m using a 3/8 inch spade bit, 1/8 in. twis...

Easy DIY Wooden Kitchen Countertop

05-15-2015 08:27 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Redoing little parts of our house, we decided to do an ebony stained wooden counter top. After removing the counter, the pieces were cut individually. They were all glued on. A 1 1/2”x3/4” piece of pine was nailed to the front edge of the counter to give it a thicker look. Stain was then applied after some sanding and filling in any gaps or holes. When the stain was dried approximately 6 coats of poly were applied and let cured before anything was placed on top. View on YouTube
