Every second week, Harbor Freight has their standard HVLP (purple) gun on sale for $15 or sometimes even $10 but the box warns you that you need “X” amount of air to operate it. I say fooey! My small Craftsman pancake compressor advertises 2.7 CFM at 40PSI which is far below the advertised 6 CFM that the gun requires. Perhaps the HVLP gun has a similar “over-specification” as their 2HP dust collector? With the tank full and the regulator set at 50 PSI (while holding...

PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM82xM8cwf4 Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else. Simply making stuff. Most projects are made purely off the cuff and only have a general idea how it will turn out.” So basically just generally making stuff. Although wood will be my most co...
Hello Everyone,Just put a new video up on YouTube. In this video we use cutoffs from past projects to build a really cool dog bowl stand with turned legs.

For my entry in the Summers Woodworking Third Annual Creative 2 X 4 Contest I chose to make a plant stand which has the form of a plant! Here’s the link to the “youtube video”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGo0_-mM1ZQ It’s the first video I’ve ever posted, in fact, the first to ever leave my recording device. Thanks for looking in and have a wonderful day all you Lumber Jocks.
Hey Guys, My neighbor very generously gave me this board: It is Luan mahogany, and is: 3/4” x 3 1/2” x 48” (T x W x L) So, what project should I do with it? Based on your suggestions, I’ll then build the project, and blog the build. Thanks in advance, and I’m looking forward to it!
I decided to make a cooler box for my deck and I designed the whole project using examples from the web below are some of the design aspects that I designed on Sketchup.. Also is a shopping list for all materials and tools that I will be using in its construction: If you decide to make this cooler please take your own cooler measurements… As you know they are all very different, my cooler is a 48 quart cooler.. The cooler roughly cost me $100 for materials but I had to buy the K4 ...
I follow Darbin Orvar on Youtube and built the stool that she featured last year. i even tried something new to me, distressing a painted finish. I used the leftovers of the Teal Green bench that I made previously, and top coated it with leftover color from a kitchen project. I sanded some “worn” places on some of the edges for a used appearance. We were invited to the second birthday of a friend’s child and did not know what to give her. it came to me in a flash! The sto...
Looking for some insight, on veneer finish versus solid. The pro and con’s to them, and some helpful techniques. Never used veneer and looking to experiment with it soon.
I just decided to take up wood working a little over a year ago due to health reasons. I could not continue with my past hobbies, so I decided to take up WW late in life. I know that I will never get the years of experience needed to accomplish what others do, but if I am having fun, so what? Fun is fun, at whatever level one is at. I work exclusively with pine or fir due to low cost and easy availability. I even use pocket hole screws, and pin nailers! My first project was a basic 5...
