I built a particle separator that used a thien baffle in 5 gallon buckets. It has a small footprint, all one vertical unit, rolls around, has onboard hose storage and works great. Watch video.
Here’s a video about the extension I made to support stock on the left side of my tablesaw. Easy to adjust and simple to make. Watch video.
Here’s a video of the stationary outfeed extension I added to my contractor style table saw. Watch video.
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...
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...
With just a bandsaw and some scrap wood you can easily create your own mallet.
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...
At first I went to the craft store to buy the wooden wheels that I needed for childrens toys.After a while I thought that I can make my own. Here is a video of how I make them. Let me know what you think.Thank you.Paul
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
Watch the build video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWKm2X-hBqc I’ve made a few of these pallet signs before. Rustic items like this seem to pretty popular. I thought that since I wastaking the time to build them I might as well record the process in case anyone is looking for an easy project to get started in woodworking. The pallet sign in the intro was one of the first things I ever made and it was a good intro to measuring, using a table saw, and learning glue-up/clampin...
