Automatic Dust Collection Design #2: Opening the Black box

08-22-2015 04:35 PM by kinger | 12 comments »

In the last post, I described the inputs and outputs to the system but left the main guts for this post. First, lets define a couple features which we should try to build into the black box: The shop vac should turn on when a tool turns on – this is a simple one but its the base functionality to which we build off of. Provide the ability to run small loads off the system without turning on the DC. Provide the ability to connect multiple tools to the system, all which can indepe...

Commisions #7: pull out trash box #2

07-14-2008 08:37 PM by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...

Back Burner projects

04-14-2009 04:43 AM by Demowen | 1 comment »

Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...

Woodworking for a Job ?

06-28-2010 08:52 PM by cdbridge39 | 17 comments »

I have been thinking about going into woodworking full time. I like to work with wood all the time, what does that say about me ? Does anyone do woodworking full time ? I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?

New Basement Workshop Pics #1: Floor cured & Ridgid R4511 unpacked

01-18-2011 05:11 AM by shimster | 6 comments »

This may not look like a woodworking post at first glance, but do read on…. I’m afraid to look back at the date of when I last posted to LJs regarding a suggestion on finish ceiling height in my basement dig out. Well, After 9 months of design/ planning/ construction, my basement is dug out & the slab is poured. A brief history of events: Our house was built in 1852 & had 5 foot ceilings & dirt floors when we bought it. It had an old boiler (70’s) that ven...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #1: Making connections

01-28-2013 02:54 AM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers, Well I got some good feedback from my previous blog entry so I decided I might as well start a new series for my new small business and chronicle the ups and downs of starting my business. Enjoy! This weekend I made significant contactions with a potential customer that would allow me to sell my items in a local co-op market. The market is for natural and organic foods as well as a small merchandise section that my stuff would be placed. I am hoping to make a deal on this...

Assembly Table #1: The idea!

07-14-2008 11:21 PM by Callum Kendall | 5 comments »

I was thinking this weekend about what I will need in my shop when I have finshed the build. I liked the assembly table that Marc (the wood whisperer) made in one of his videos. This is my fist attempt at sketch-up, so hear is the idea :) Any suggestions feel free Thanks Callum

Need to find new storage for my lumber

11-30-2008 11:11 AM by daiku1 | 5 comments »

in my current shop, I built home-made storage arms out of 2×4’s and plywood. Most of my lumber is stored horizontally. I would like to move my lumber out of the shop and into a storage building, where I would like to store it vertically. I need to do this to gain some space for a jointer/planer coming my way. I am somewhat worried about warpage. Can anyone tell me if they have had good luck with vertical storage? Any tricks?

Wine Rack Expedition #4: Result of Monotony

03-28-2009 06:34 AM by Demowen | 5 comments »

Well folks, 160 dowel holes later, I’m ready to call it quits. I don’t mind hard work, but repetition drives me crazy! Here is a snapshot of some of those dowel holes…Now, notice the markings on the end grain. This is important to me so that I don’t keep having to second guess myself when I am putting things together. I have those pieces marked ‘L’ or ‘R’ for left or right and numbered from top to bottom. I mark all the pieces on the right ...

Another LJ get together in Michigan

11-17-2009 07:57 PM by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

As it were. SteveMI. Stopped by to say hi today much to my surprise and pleasure. We talked like old friends for 2 hours before he had to hit the road. He had stopped back at Raven Farm to do some more shopping, without me, of course. He promised next time to include me. We had a great time and he got to see my messy shop first hand. Will I take the messy shop record? Who knows. We did talk about another Michigan get together maybe in January or Febuary. What do the rest of you Michiganians t...
