Well, after much debate and discussion it appears as though I am finally on my way to having a real live workshop all my own! My wife and I bought our current home with the idea of flipping it and buying something else with a large yard and shop. Take a couple years, add a little one to the mix and plans change. Our location is great, walking distance to schools and stores and work. We had considered selling and looking for something else, but we bought at a great time and the property ...
Looking at YouTube this morning, found an interesting approach to Band Saw fence. I haven’t been happy with the few I’ve found on the market. All of them seem to be either a mess of clamping or bolting the fence rail such that the cover up the blade slot on my Craftsman 14” table. That means unbolting the thing every time I need to change a blade. ugh! AmericanWoodworker Channle had a video on a Universal Bandsaw Fence . This was actually a combination extension ab...
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...

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.
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...
This is part one of ??? following my build of an oak storage bench. I chose oak because I am trying to match a client’s cabinets. She needed a specific size and functionality, so in this video, I go over my Sketchup model and explain how I plan on building this project.Enjoy! Oak Storage Bench Part One: Introduction
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 ...
