In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.

Shop-built Air Cleaner I tend to do my woodworking once the sun goes down and it cools off, so to keep from waking the neighbors up I usually do it with the garage door closed. This was pretty brutal on my lungs even with a dust collector so I built myself a shop air cleaner. It’s built around a 1 micron bag filter and 2” pre filter from an actual commercial shop air cleaner (about $45), one sheet of 3/4 ply. The blower motor is a 12” squirrel cage blower that moves ...

I picked up this beauty for only $75 off Craigslist this weekend. Everything seems to be in good shape except for nicks on the blades about 4” out. It’s missing the blade guard for when you move the fence in, but other than that has everything else, as far as I can see. The power switch is attached with duct tape, but I will remedy that as well. Now for the tool p0rn!
Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!
I’ll take you through the steps I used to build my router guide for my wood lathe. It is essentially a box with adjustable sides and top which has a slot to guide the router bushing. It is made from 5/8” plywood, clear Lexan, Steel and aluminum.I started with a 11.5×11.5 bottom and cut rabbets on both sides on the table saw and made a cut out for the tail stock. The sides were glued in place held square by a couple scrap blocks. They had T nuts installed for the adjustment ...
this is turning out to be a sort of mystery jointer…. After looking at the manual jet sent me for the jj-6 model I noticed significant differences between the jointer i have and the jointer in the manual. Probably the most important part is the fence. The fence on the jointer i have hooks to the end of the infeed table (see pics in part 1 of the blog..very similar to the delta 37-220 models) and the jointer in the manual jet sent me, the fence is hooked up at the middle of the jointe...
After commenting and following a post by MichaelJ, I decided that a picture or two is worth a thousand words. So, here’s how I do it. (I had also posted in the past another way, but I like this method better)First, remove the blade guard on your planer. Set the fence to the maximum width.Face joint the board as you normally would, until the jointable surface is flat.You should now have the flat, jointed surface and the “rabbet” from the overhang.This is the spacer board, whi...
These are pictures after I finished the top, realigned and repainted the fence, and used it for a bit.
