With all my wood turning and saw dust that is generated in the shop that accumulate rather quickly I needed something that wont clog my vacuum every time is vacuum. I was searching around in the Google Search engine and found The Dust Deputy . I used a Home Depot bucket and my Ridgid vacuum cleaner. This system has proven to very satisfactory and does a great job. I almost never have any thin in vacuum cleaner. I just mounted the system on a simple 2×4 and plywood cart.
I have two kinds of projects. Some are the smaller ones that get wrapped up in a matter of days or weeks. I do several of these each year. Some are planned while others are done as the need pops up. The others are bigger. They take on a life of their own. They can last for months and years. They get set aside and left gathering dust – sometimes for months. But I don’t mind. I know that I will finish them and I would rather take a few years to complete a project than to have ...
The sides of the knife blocks consist of 5 pieces of bookmatched walnut, maple and cherry 3/8” thick and 13 1/2” long which was determined by the length of the longest knife blade .I sized the 4/4” rough lumber to pieces that are 5 1/4” wide x 15” long and jointed one edge and one face and set the bandsaw up for resawing.Once all of the resawing is done,a few trips through the planer gets everything to 3/8.” Both block sides consists of 2 walnut, 2 maple ...
Even though this project has been complete for sometime, I did film the progress of it so I figured some of your guys may enjoy the process. On a side note, since this was a client build, I decided to not talk but just filmed the clips. I found this to save me a ton of time instead of if I had talked my way through it. I hope you guys still enjoy it though.
Additional to these Narra parquet boxes is an experimental Aluminum framing on the lid plus division and tray. It turned out good. I have not finished yet the finishing and the lid handle so please bear with the raw unsanded pictures of the box… I just want you to see it prior finishing it. You can still spot the errors. The challenges…Gluing the parquet pieces…. I have to make a 3 inches wide from this parquet so I added both half inch strips on the side of a 2...
Found a set of plans at Rockler for a three piece Arts & Crafts living room table set. Bought the materials for the coffee table – around $200. Bought enough materials for the coffee table to start. My 16 year old son did the mortise/tenons and all the cuts. We did staining together. Want to put on a mosaic tile top. We prefer staining prior to assembly.
I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!
In this episode I give you a tour around my garage shop. Here is the link to the shop bench series.

Heres a quick video showing the build process… Enjoy! Its been a great project and I hope to soon post another video showing it in all of it glory.
Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website WoodWorkersWebsite.com but I also wanted to mention a few things here regarding what I’ve learned while making this project. It’s the second indoor project, the first was a clock. I spend most of my time practicing my woodworking skills by making things for my garage. I designed this project myself which makes it very different from following a plan. I’ve designed almost everythin...
