HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #1: HF-DC Dust Collector Optimization

1 day ago by Morton WoodWorks | 8 comments »

I know that many people have modified the HF-DC but I just wanted to put my spin out there. I have been doing a lot of research on the many different styles of updates/modifications that have been done and holy cow there are a lot. But, most of them rely on the Thien principle that seems to be pretty simple. On the Thien blog there is a guy that tests and records many different modifications with different setups. I am going to set-out to make my entire system buying the least amount as p...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #22: Now for the serious stuff!

9 days ago by PhilBello | 2 comments »

I have been full of good intentions, but something always seems to crop up to stop the bigger projects getting under way, however I think I am clear to get started on rebuilding the kiosko / gazebo. It was my intention to get under way last week, but we had to have a couple of Mango trees removed, one at the front and another at the back of the house, for fruit trees they were big, taller than the house, and that was a worry, because I didn’t want any damage done to the house whilst fel...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #3: Demo Time!

12 days ago by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Phase 1 of the demo is complete. We will replace the uppers, put everything back in service, then replace the lower cabinets. The cabinets were installed with screws so it was a simple matter of removing the screws and taking the cabinets down. We did remove the doors, then put them back on after they were on the floor. Regardless of what you might see on the TV DIY shows, no cabinets were damaged in this demo! :) We now have a clean slate. a bit holey, but clean all the same. I plan to...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

27 days ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

Quick round object sander using your drill

103 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 18 comments »

I’ve been making some legs for a small granite top table. I started out by carving them with a draw knife, then using a rasp and belt sander. Lastly i usually take a strip of sanding belt that has been used by tearing a strip off about an inch wide and it will be 48” long as that’s the size for the belt sander I have. I grab two ends and use it over the curved leg like a shoe shine towel. it does a very good job but is tiring on the arms after awhile. After doing this for...
