Third time lucky?... time will tell! I decided that although I use my router regularly, I don’t do anything complicated, so a simple router table that can be packed away after use is ideal. I have taken an idea from 'poroldchap' on Youtube, and made a couple of small changes. The whole unit only comprises of a hardwood base, with another piece attached underneath to fit in the vise, and a 3/4” plywood fence/vertical table, I bought a hardwood stair tread 12” x 30&...
So after talking to the owner of the salvage store for a little while he let me go down and pick the basement where all of the items from his estate buy outs go before they put them on the sales floor. I was floored with the amount of stuff that he had down there. Picture a room the size of a football field filled with boxes, trunks, shelves and crates FILLED with amazing stuff. I picked for about 2 hours and found everything we like from vintage, rare Stanley #18 Sweetheart plane, a Stanley ...

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.
I finally started my dedicated mitre saw station and as you can see it’s basically going to be 2 36” wide cabinets with drawers and 2 cabinet doors to each unit .. In the middle I’m going to put a shelf and frame to support the mitre saw and also make it flush to the top of the cabinets so I cut my 8’ lumber . The cabinets are made out of furniture grade poplar and its dimensions are 36” wide 40” tall and 24” deep.. I planing...
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...
Well, I think the top is as cleaned up as I can get it, now Forgotten how many knots that old Walnut had…Ok, put the top aside for a while, need to fix the other part of the table… The old ones were too thick, and didn’t hold screws very well These will get tossed. laid out some lines on a 1×6. Bandsaw to cut a pair of 2” wide strips, and a thinner middle one. Decided to joint the wider boards, made it easier to miter them Went upstairs to grab a...
Just a short video on how the shop has changed and a surprise that was delivered that day. View on YouTube
I must be in the mood to edit. I completed the video on the table for the mitre saw, and while that was uploading I did one on reusing the casters that came off the table saw. I am looking forward to relaxing from doing all that and more today. I edited 2 videos, shot the new shop tour with a special surprise in it, and I even managed to fire up the barbique and cook up some steaks. A good day for the first week in January. So, any way, here are the new videos: View on YouTube Vie...
