Extendable Trestle Table, Myth or Makeable?

1807 days ago by ImaNewOne | 6 comments »

I had a request for a Trestle Table with 2-3 extensions. Have any of you seen such a table? I am not sure as to how to design it. Should the rails slide over the trestle or should the stretcher slide? How would you hide the rails other than using an apron? The apron kind of defeats the style of a true trestle, IMO. Any assistance, guidance, direction and even general sarcasm would be greatly appreciated. —Mike—

Refinishing update

1807 days ago by kosta | 10 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I have been really board this week and decided to do a test does dust collection really help improve sandpaper life. It actually does because I am working on a fish tank stand right now and I have to do a lot of sanding. Now I dont really care if I have to sand something for 30 minutes but it doesnt matter how long it takes. I use a dewalt 5 in random orbit sander and I have been doing most of the heavy work with the 60 grit paper because Im trying to get all the old sta...

Project concepts & ideas #1: Alternative to cyclone dust collector?

1814 days ago by TheLandYacht | 11 comments »

OK. As I’ve understood it, the point of a cyclone DC is to slow the air movement down to allow the dust to fall into a receptacle before the air to move into the blower. Am I right on this? So, my concept is this. Instead of a hard-to-assemble cyclone setup, just a 5gallon bucket, with a smaller (1 gallon or so?) bucket mounted inside of it…with the below modifications. Lets see if I can describe my concept well enough not to need pics & sketches. So. A 5 gallon buc...

"Art Box" Tutorial #10: Pin Hinges

1815 days ago by Andy | 17 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...

foot powered Scroll saw #6: Spring my foot

1819 days ago by Tom8021 | 1 comment »

I bought a package of four springs at Home Depot. You can put a spring at the back or at the front. I tried the different sizes in different places and picked the 4” one near the front. I put it on by gluing short pieces of dowels, one to the base and the other to the bottom arm, and slipping it on. The next thing to do is drill a hole in the end of the bottom arm. I failed to mention that the hole for the blade holder is 1” in from the front end of both arms. Also, I cut ab...
