my weekend workshop #2: Miter Saw dust shroud

04-21-2012 01:57 AM by noweyrey1 | 3 comments »

Today was more of an experiment than anything but I’m satisfied with how it turned out. I was tired of sawdust going everywhere in my garage when I used my miter saw, so decided to try build a shroud out of some scraps and some vinyl sheeting so the dust collector could be more effective. I have a shop vac under the miter saw that collects the dust from the saws port which doesn’t collect much at all. Eventually I’ll build a more permanent cabinet with a downdraft table unde...

Right now I have a porter cable 12’ miter saw. It is not a sliding miters saw. I still want to keep my porter cable saw but am in need of a slider. A 10 would be fine AJ

Reception desk #1: Project completed in 2 days! I Needed 4 days of rest after...

I am working on a reception desk for a local business. Using birch plywood with birch trim. Had everything done over one weekend except for the finish. I like to cut dados first with the router on a festool track and then cut into separate pieces the design features a built in monitor in the top. the easiest way I found to do that was to build around the monitor. 2 small dowels hold the monitor at the right angle. I had to assemble this outside because it is a li...

French screen doors #1: Starting with embedded framing squares?

04-04-2012 12:08 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

A set of hard to get screen doors for Anderson exterior french doors. This ‘beginning’ shows the production of the rails and styles with embedded metal to brace the doors to help with any possible sagging. The unusual thing about it is that as I was going to weld up some flat bar into an L shape, I instead found some $2 framing squares which looked exactly like what I would have made. View the short video of the start of these doors. The video begins after I have cut up and st...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #2: Last night was a good night

03-30-2012 01:49 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 4 comments »

After a very early morning and a good day working away from my normal 40 hour a week job. I was able to spend the latter half of yesterday working on my bench. I managed to get the skirts cut, and installed. I did not glue the sides on or the top on. Here is the results…. How do you guys like that Japanese angle guide. It was worth the $55 I paid for it, and will never leave my toolbox. The bottom picture shows how my bench is different from Mr. Sellers’...

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

Prayer Kneeler #1: Starting to take shape

03-20-2012 05:17 PM by Trabiman | 2 comments »

A friend of mine, who took a day from work and drove 6hrs round trip, ran a new 100 AMP panel from the house to my woodshop. When I tried to give him money, he refused and asked only that I make him something. I said sure thing… He asked me to build a prayer kneeler for his house. He only had one requirement, which was that it be made out of scrap that I had on hand in the shop. After looking at many sites and other postings of those who make kneelers I have finally have a start.

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.
