It’s a hectic world out there. That statement says a lot as of late, work, family, home repairs, remodels, obligations, appointments, meetings…. it goes on and on every single day in many of our lives. For thoes of us who love woodworking, but have other professions, where do we find time to do what we love? It’s difficult to, isn’t it? In my situation, commercial truck driver by proffesion, keeps me from home 5 days a week, day an night. When I am home, i have...

Redneck Air Compressor Aftercooler

03-20-2017 02:30 PM by PPK | 5 comments »

I recently got a nice, used air compressor for a really great price. I have been needing one to power my air sander and also to keep up with my HVLP sprayer. This fits the bill perfectly. However, I want really dry air for using my spray gun, and also to make my other air tools last longer. Moist air isn’t good for any air tool that I’m aware of. So,I researched a bit, and decided to make a cooling loop to cool the air off after it come out of the tank/compressor before it runs th...

Hand plane restoration

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

03-14-2017 04:55 PM by Questtut | 3 comments »

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #1: Idea for a low cost work bench solution

03-14-2017 04:30 PM by Questtut | 0 comments »

I had been tossing around the thought this I want a better work bench. The problem is, I don’t have much money or time to build one. As a commercial truck driver by trade, I’m only home for a little more than 1 day per week, and much of that time is taken up caring for my kids, house and volunteering in the Scouting Organization. But, like every other wood working enthusiast, I know I need to just make some time to do what I love doing. So on each weekend that I have even just ...

100 foot cabinet shop #3: Dust collection!? We don't need no steenkin' dust collection!

03-01-2017 02:50 AM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

Was cleaning out the saw and was impressed with how much dust accumulated even with a 4” line. The dust collector was not clogged but the saw dust simply doesn’t self cascade into the vac hole. So I had a thought that since the saw cabinet was filling anyway (and it holds a lot of dust), that perhaps I was wasting time/energy cycling the DC for every little saw cut. So I now don’t bother turning on the DC for the saw until I’m doing a cleanout. Discuss! M

Things go wrong with the finishing process. I don’t get it figured out on this video, but I keep trying and trying. I go through the finish process, then strip it because I was not happy and start again. View on YouTube
