Build: Dust Separator

02-12-2016 05:12 AM by TabLeft | 4 comments »

View on YouTube This is an easy-to-build dust separator with a baffle. It works because the incoming air is forced around the outside wall, where the heavier dust and chips fall into the large trash can below. When driven with a blower like I use, the baffle removes the need for a standalone dust collection system (which not everyone has the money, space, or power to accommodate). When used with a shop-vac, this simple dust collector will greatly prolong the life of your filters and preve...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Making of the weaved box

01-30-2016 05:42 AM by BertFlores58 | 7 comments »

I am doing the second box. Luckily, photos can be taken to minimize explaining. Making of Hinges and also the top. The box is nearly complete so I will start on what is to be done.The hinge is made up of wood that I had a slot made independently then glued some pieces back in place. One of the black hinge was broken so I need to replace that… You can also see the middle part of the hinge have an offset insert. Remove the pin then complete the missing ebony. Let the p...

Varying Designs Using Sketchup, I had drawn a lot of possibilities for a 12 Rhombus combinations. Here is the photo of the one I like… Cutting the rhombus.Then, next step is cutting the rhombus. I set my compound saw to 30 deg then cut so many pieces one by one. Thanks for Daddy (Dad-in-Law) who also helped in cutting them. I could not find a photo.. AssemblySorting out according to colors and blend will shorten the time. Also the correct thickness will save time. G...

COASTERS #1: The Conversion from Scrap to Workable Stocks

01-26-2016 11:49 AM by BertFlores58 | 1 comment »

From Scraps to Strips. What are the available woods that are needed? They are unlimited in terms of target dimension which is a rhombus of 30×60 deg with width of 1 inch. Aside from this I need to check on the blend of colors that are classified according to dark darker darkest.. So I will use the narra stocks that I have plenty. The scrap 2×6 Narra parquet with varying thickness. These are the previous flooring used in our office. Therefore, two pieces ...

Drill Press Workhorse – Making it more efficient

01-23-2016 05:49 PM by TheMrWoody | 10 comments »

Over the years I’ve turned my floor standing drill press into a productive tool that uses space efficiently and makes it more versatile. I started with the table top which doesn’t help most woodworking if you just use the standard metal platform that comes with the drill press. The add-on provides a broader surface, a replaceable wood insert for backing the drilling, an adjustable fence, the storage drawer and a dust collection system. For even more dust collection, I added a semi-rigid colle...

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...
