The American Craftsman WorkShop #25: Dust Collection

03-14-2010 07:42 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 10 comments »

I often get questions about my dust collection set up and so I thought that I would share it with everyone. The dust collection in my shop is simple and may even be a bit of a disappointment to see. But the reality is that it works pretty well except for a few shortcomings. Currently I am using a single stage, 2hp, 1500cfm rated dust collector wired for 220v. It is a 110/220v motor, but when wired to 110v it would dim the lights every time I fired it up so 220v is the best option. T...

Life on the North 40 #3: This just about sums it up for me ...

03-14-2010 07:27 AM by Peter Oxley | 9 comments »

When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone.Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, “See! This our father did for us.” – John Ruskin

STOVE TOP PHOTOS #1: SCARAB PLASTER TILE IN ANTIQUED PATINA

03-13-2010 06:52 AM by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Made a life cast of a OWENs tile I was framing for Fred and Debbie. From the life cast I made from a item called insta mold from hobby lobby./// It is sort of like a rubbery gooey paste … well mine was >grin< ///guess I should have read directions. It sets up real fast without enough water …my batch was real lumpy and bumpy. The instamold is temporary … meaning it drys out and shrinks … eventual turns into unusable brick of crud. I made 4 scarab castings from the m...

A journey into the workshop. #48: Working on kitchen cabinet re-organization projects...

03-12-2010 11:23 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So as I am a tool junkie, LOML is a Pampered Chef junkie, and over the years, she has accumulated pretty much the entire PC catalog, and in many cases, several of the more important items such as pitchers, bakers, gravy boats and such… Now the problem is, we have a pretty pathetic cabinet layout for the size house we have. So we quickly overran the available storage capacity of the cabinets… Now our upper cabinets do not butt up against the ceiling, but rather match the heig...

Works for me #6: Blade Cleaning

03-08-2010 07:06 PM by Dave Owen | 8 comments »

This morning I cleaned one of my table saw blades, so I decided to write a little blog about it. For any of you who don’t have a favorite blade cleaner – and for those who want to try something different, here’s a suggestion. The product I’ve used for years is “Lestoil Grease & Stain Remover” (a product of the Clorox Company). Some of you old-timers like me may remember their advertising jingle from years ago – “It’s so easy when ...

Upcoming projects and designs. #6: Working on a cedar planter box...

03-08-2010 05:23 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

The projects keep getting heaped up on me. Last night was a directive to get the not yet fully refinished cabinet doors out of the shop and back onto the kitchen cabinets. My fault, I have been taking too long with them, and refinishing is only a stop gap anyway, we are building new doors and drawer fronts to give the kitchen a whole new look… I managed to get about a half hour of shop time last night and finished sawing and planing down the cedar 2×4s to 1.5” x 1.5”...
