Shop stuff #35: Improving the Bosch

02-08-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I love my Bosch Glide mitre saw. It is a wonderful piece of machinery. If you have been following along though, you will realize that it does have some short comings. One of them is the dust chute. Here I do a simple job, with a reclaimed inner tube from a wheel barrow, to improve it a bit. It is still not perfect, but it is a lot better. I suppose that having the vacuum or a dust collector hooked up would improve it more, but I do not have the power to the shop yet, so we will have to...

Odds 'N' Ends #6: Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage

02-04-2016 10:36 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I thought I would try something different for bit storage this time. I grabbed one of those magnetic tool holders from Harbor Freight, cut a bunch of V-grooves into it with the bench grinder and bam, instant Forstner bit rack. What do you guys think?Enjoy! Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage

Air Quality #5: Sanding Station: Ideation

02-03-2016 07:16 PM by bkseitz | 12 comments »

Started brainstorming this morning around building my sanding station. Decided rather than have my current assembly table cut up to have a inset for a downdraft box I’d build a complete sanding station. The idea I’ve come up with so far has a downdraft table on one side with built-in DC & power and on the other side would be my stationary bench and oscillating sanders on the other. The downdraft table would be similar to the Stumpy Nubs design as well as have a front vice...

Goat Stanchion #1: Ideation

02-03-2016 06:32 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

My honey for the last year or so trying her hand at raising goats. That has meant a lot of carpentry and electrical work for me: First converting an old chicken pen into a barn for the goats with divided rooms, second adding overhead heat and lighting (in progress). This past week my wife suggested, well asked, for us to look into making goat cheese. Well, to make goat cheese you need goat milk duh; to get goat milk you need to milk goats; to milk goats you need something to keep them st...

WEAVED BOX SERIES #1: Weaved Design Variations

02-03-2016 01:55 AM by BertFlores58 | 1 comment »

Triple slat designs. I started using the scrap pieces excess from Narra flooring parquet. This was the result of squaring both sides of the cut using thicknesser jig I made. It was easily done even by 4 or 5 depending on the texture and grain orientation of the narra strips. The use of popsicle sticks was really proportional with the Narra. Design Concepts I have started the three designs and manage to construct two using same concept with only variation on the black spaces by using 1...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

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.

Refurbish, Reclaim or Reject!! #1: Picked Up and Old, Early Disston today. Is it too far gone?

02-01-2016 01:50 PM by Dex378 | 4 comments »

So I went to my local salvage/resale store today looking for anything cool they might have up in the tool section. After rummaging through all the junk I found a complete postwar Stanley #4 bench plane for $3.00, some halfway decent rasps for $0.25 each, and few other odds and ends. As I was leaving I decided to dig through all the hand saws they had jammed in an old slop sink. After going through about 30 of them I came across an early Disston. I looked at it for a little while and the handl...
