Chop Saw Dust Hood #2: Top & Bottom of the Plenum Box Added

11-26-2009 12:15 PM by BlankMan | 7 comments »

Now I’ve added the top and bottom to the plenum box in the back of the collection hood. The idea of the plenum box is to equally distribute the vacuum along the whole length of the opening to collect the sawdust. The 4” duct will connect to the top of the box, inside the plenum 2/3 down from the top is a divider board that splits the box into two chambers. The divider board has three holes in it, a 2-1/4” hole in the middle and two 2-3/8” holes one at each end. What I ...

Chop Saw Dust Hood #1: Top, middle rail, and back glued in place

11-25-2009 08:34 AM by BlankMan | 13 comments »

Well Sunday I finally got around to start building a new dust collection hood for behind my new miter saw. I had one behind my old miter saw but this new saw is wider and I had to redo the bench for it to fit thus making the old hood too small to cover the area needed. Been without one for about a year because I also picked up the Delta 12” RAS and had to redo the bench for that to fit also. So I wasn’t about to build a hood until both the RAS and miter saw were firmly mounted in ...

Bookrack Project Part 1

11-22-2009 05:12 AM by davidroberts | 1 comment »

I’ve been working on this bookrack project for the past two months and we finished today. It is for my son’s Eagle Scout project. The idea came from a charity resale shop our boy scout troop supports. My son wanted to build something for them so we ask what they needed. They said a paperback bookrack. I must admit, this would not have been my first choice, but hey, we gave it a shot. The next few pictures will get you through about half the project, then I’ll post the ...

Grain Matching Corners on a Box #1: How Many Can You do?

11-12-2009 04:11 AM by scrappy | 11 comments »

I have been doing some thinking about Grain Matching corners. We all see boxes that the wood has been wraped around to match 3 corners, but the 4th is allways off. I think I have come up with a way to match all 4 sides. I will be making a box when I can get back in the shop.(hurt my shoulder and LOML won’t let me play until next week) Will take step by step pics and post in this series for everyone. Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...

How to find great figure wood other than Burl

10-24-2009 05:33 PM by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

20 Steps to a Checker Board... a beginners guide

10-17-2009 04:57 AM by Demowen | 7 comments »

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...
