My shop is such that I do not have a wall behind the miter saw. There is a dust port on the saw that catches some of the saw dust. That is connectd to my dust collection system. However! This saw generates a good deal of random dust. I have tried placing a plastic scoop on a stand, (available from Woodcraft.) also connected to the dust collection system behind the saw. While it catches some additional dust, the saw still spews alot of random dust. I’d appreciate any ideas to cat...
The 2nd show in the series for floating shelves. I hope that everyone enjoys it, and I continue my struggles with this darn illness. http://blip.tv/file/3580195 Not sure of this is how to do this or not.
Hey everyone,I am in need of some help! I am writing a book called “The Burl Hunter”. I am looking for interested people who are willing to read as I write to help me out. I am not a great writer but I love to teach. What I would like to do is get about 5 people to read and critique the book. Even edit my grammar. I would like 2 people who know about burls just to keep me in check and 3 to just read to learn and see how it flows. I need your input. It is a book that will g...
Slap some french cleats on it, hang it on the wall, and HOLA !!! Instant miter saw workstation. These were supposed to be storage cubbies for the kids toys with an integrated desktop spanning the 2 cabinets. I went overboard on the design, my wife simpy wanted boxes. Oh well ….. All 1/2’ big box birch plywood. No finish yet. I put it to work immediatly. Plenty of storage for hand power tools and stuff. Always have a backup plan. Enjoy… http://i955.photobucke...
How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...
Ok fellow Jocks I have stumbled into the video end of wood working. This is the first episode in the series so please give it a look and I would appreciate any feed back. http://blip.tv/file/3530163 I will learn a better way of copying the link and I hope not to be so camera shy in the future.
The first step was to cut pieces, and gluing the two frame (I did not have a camera in shop)I have a drawing of this pieceThis is the left side, right side is a mirror imageIt is now conducting the second phase, two frames with glue and spokes InstallationTomorrow I hope to see a well-dried frame, which become rounded trim.See you next time
I recently finished building a federal style card table loosely patterned after the plan in FWW issue #59, “Federal Card Table” by Michael Dunbar. That table in turn is based on a piece from the period, thought to be from Baltimore. I still consider myself a newbie, and was shocked at how well the finished table came out! Now I’m going to make a second table with a few improvements. If you’d like to follow along I can promise you that we will take an interesting and unconve...
I’ve been poking along with this project, fitting it in with other chores around the house. It seems like as a person gets older, it takes more time to get anything done, but it gradually gets done.. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After attaching the side panels, I glued in a piece of foam pad as a silencer. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To stretch my plywood, plus protect the ply edges, I glued ...
In this episode I start working on a chest. I cut all the parts to the right width on the tablesaw then I cut all the parts to the right length on the miter saw.
