Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight DC #1: If you build it, dust will come.

03-15-2011 08:18 AM by newTim | 9 comments »

Here’s my big idea for converting a HF to a 2-stage DC. I sold my Jet and bought the HF for $139. I got the vortex (?) lid from Woodcraft and am using a regular plastic trash can. I didn’t take the time, yet, to draw in the intake/outtake hoses, and I don’t know how to draw the plastic bag, but you can get an idea of the concept. I must confess, however, I already built one of these, but it turned out to be too small. It was too short, too narrow, and not deep enough, o...

Eternal mallet

03-14-2011 12:03 AM by Oleg Smirnov | 15 comments »

Such mallet will serve centuries for itself, children, grandsons and great-grandsons. Such mallet won’t break the handle of chisels. Very much I recommend, friends!

My "Bucket List" #2: Part Two: Segment One- My pie crust table

03-13-2011 05:10 AM by therookie | 2 comments »

Well what put this on my list of projects is Garyk and his blog about his interpretation of the classic chippendale pie crust table. Well reading on how he built his and what I would need to do, I decided to put a spin into the classic design and make it a really unique table. Well when I was doing research on how the classics were built they were out of mahogony or walnut traditionally. I did not have any on hand so I used what I had and that was Quater Sawn White Oak.

03-12-2011 12:21 AM by AlexHarris | 3 comments » Hello agian you Lumber Jocks, Today I did a quick little trincket box project that was a lot of fun on the lathe.

By creating a friction fit on the lid you can turn the lid as if is was part wood still mounted to th lathe. Althoug this is a simple box with a little imagination this box could be made really exciting. To ...

Woodshop On A Budget #4: Craigslist takes a "turn" in a direction for new tool acquisition ideas!!!

03-11-2011 07:28 AM by Chefshep | 7 comments »

So, I’m doing my thing… looking on craigslist for the next great tool deal. I usually rummage thru the “For Sale – tools” section for ideas. Then I look thru garage sales which often will have better prices on the same types of tools. One Saturday a few weeks back… I stumble across an add in the garage sale section for a sale at a storage unit business. They’re cutting locks & selling stuff at some units. Other units, the p...
