Greetings… First… if you happen to be in NE Ohio, I have a MeetUp Group for Woodworkers in NE Ohio – see below I’m new to Lumberjocks in the past few years… but I was a member several years ago under some unknown ID and some unknown email account. I’ve been woodworking for 30+ years. Professionally, I’m an Engineer and Engineering Consultant and Engineering Project Manager. I have no Woodworking projects planned for 2016… other than t...

Parallel Dust Deputy #1: Parallel Dust Deputy - Proof of Concept

03-10-2016 02:29 PM by MinnesotaSteve | 4 comments »

A few years ago I bought a Dust Deputy cyclone with the buckets and everything, and it was most awesome. My vacuum at the time was a little 3HP Shopvac. However last year I bought a bigger 6.5HP Shopvac which pulls a lot more air as well as a lot more suction. This new vac overpowers the Dust Deputy, when turned on the hose going to the cyclone violently contracts. In the manual, Oneida shows using two Dust Deputy cyclones in parallel to better handle a larger vac. They even sell a...

The Dream of my Workshop #1: Design Stage #1

03-08-2016 07:38 PM by GWTaylor | 4 comments »

With my limited space to do woodworking in my basement a shop as always been a dream of mine. Cost has always stopped me from pushing forward, but have been able to make some purchases of tools that I have used during the warmer months here in Canada. Now that my youngest son has decided to take woodworking through 4-H, I have volunteered my time as a woodworking leader. I will be setting up a shop in a pole barn but have to wait for spring in order to pour my concrete slab for the shop, i...

$500 New Shop Budget!

03-05-2016 04:43 PM by Cathie Zimmerman | 4 comments »

I’ve drawn many plans… to many projects… These projects have included everything from programming micro controllers, engineering helpful technology for around the house and designing furniture for kids. The problem is… When it comes to woodworking I was always so nervous about it not being perfect that I never made the first cut. My wife gave me a budget of $500 to get some tools and materials to get started! I have a basic Ryobi kit with an impact drill, drill, ...

Cigar Shop - Display Rack

02-27-2016 11:32 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...

Shop stuff #40: ZCI for the Bosch Glide Mitre

02-26-2016 11:31 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Not quite happy with the insert provided by Bosch, I decided to build my own. It is a pretty common thing on most mitre saws and should help give a nicer cut. Of course, I kept the original in case I have to tilt it over on the bevel adjustment. This will handle everything else. I rarely use the bevel anyway. I just stick to mitres and straight cuts for the most part. I am still getting accustomed to Lightworks. It is much more powerful than what I need, but I am getting some of my r...

Shop stuff #37: Three short videos

02-24-2016 12:10 AM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

I sometimes remember to get the camera rolling and pass on knowledge that was passed on to me. I often don’t have anywhere to put them though, so I started a new series. Doc’s Little Docs. We all started out knowing nothing, and often times, small bits of knowledge go by the wayside because people just assume that they are common knowledge. So although you may think that some of the ideas are self evident, or that everyone knows that, I think little ideas are worth preserving ...
