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 #4: Plumbing To Connect The Chop Saw's Dust Port

12-16-2009 06:52 AM by BlankMan | 4 comments »

Well I got sidetracked restoring the Jet sander but did spend time on this while working on that in between waiting for parts. I cut out the circle for the saw swivel clearance like six times. There was really no good way to measure it and get it right the first time because like I said with the blade guard, handle, and motor, the cutout is closer to half a teardrop then a circle. So I’d put the hood in place, put the saw in place, and see where it bound or was too close and cut it bigg...

First Stage of Design

01-23-2008 09:16 AM by Blake | 17 comments »

Ok, so the next piece of shop furniture that needs updating is my radial arm saw table. The original table I built was meant to be a temporary home for the old saw after its restoration about two years ago. I spent some down time at work drawing a few different designs and ideas and then put it in sketchup when I got home. Please… let’s discuss the design before I actually make any cuts! I am totally open to any constructive criticism. Here is what I have come up with so far: Th...

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #1: Concept

01-26-2009 12:31 AM by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...

Chop Saw Dust Hood #3: Outlet & Saw Swivel Clearance

11-30-2009 06:30 PM by BlankMan | 2 comments »

Well, I didn’t get to spend as much time over the 4 day Thanksgiving Holiday weekend as I wanted to working on this but I made some progress. I was actually hoping to have it done but not having the time and having to determine and make the template to do the cutout for the saw swivel clearance took a while. The cutout is not a continuous arc of the same radius because you need clearance for the guard here, the handle there and then the motor. And determining where to put the outlet was...

Texas Star #1: Learning the 2D Texas Star

08-09-2013 03:48 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

Howdy,Earlier today I was trying to learn a simple way to make a Texas Star. My neighbor wants to inlay a star on a table and we were both rather perplexed. I should have searched through the forum topics instead of the projects. I found a few cool posts about it. But it was too late. We were already making firewood out of reclaimed pine. I managed to make the prototype as the sun was setting. Ok – Here is what I have. You need to cut 18 degree angles down the length of...

Murphy Bed #1: Building a Murphy Bed from scratch

07-10-2013 10:57 PM by Jim Jakosh | 27 comments »

We need a Murphy bed next winter in Arizona and I did not want to buy the hardware. That takes all the fun out of designing it yourself and costs $360. So I looked at a lot of bed designs and settled on one that used HD pivots, gas springs for counterbalance and a swing out leg support rather than the fold down kind.The parameters were a twin mattress (7×39 x 75), had to flip long ways and enough room inside for making the bed. Then I had to decide on the pivot points, the foot pivot ce...

Cedar Cooler Box #1: Materials & Tools & Sketchup Designs

05-04-2015 06:41 PM by edwood1975 | 4 comments »

I decided to make a cooler box for my deck and I designed the whole project using examples from the web below are some of the design aspects that I designed on Sketchup.. Also is a shopping list for all materials and tools that I will be using in its construction: If you decide to make this cooler please take your own cooler measurements… As you know they are all very different, my cooler is a 48 quart cooler.. The cooler roughly cost me $100 for materials but I had to buy the K4 ...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #2: Building the legs...

03-27-2011 12:50 AM by Lockwatcher | 0 comments »

All of the lumber for the legs has been sized…now to glue them up… I cut a small piece of the “frame” lumber, so that it would be easier to glue up the legs with the proper sized notch. The final size of the legs is 24 1/2” long (the glued up short section is 5” shorter than the longer piece; 19 1/2” in this case). Above: The first leg is glued-up. Check the size of your notch with a sample cut from your upper or lower frame lumber. Aft...
