Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

07-27-2014 02:37 AM by Sk1pp3r | 0 comments »

I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #2: From Library to Leisure - Layout, Ripping, and Cutting

05-21-2014 12:50 AM by TimBridge | 1 comment »

I got the wood for this project for free from a friend of a friend’s old bookshelves. Some of it is badly warped, there are a few screw holes in it a bunch of places that I’ll have to plug, and it’s discolored from years of use so I am pre-sanding everything with 80 grit. Beggars can’t be choosers! All in all, there were four 6’x10” boards and eight 3’x10” boards. I laid everything out with my drywall square and speed square, making su...

Woodworking For Therapy #1: Live or Waste Away, I choose to Live

12-10-2013 03:39 PM by Steve Kreins | 22 comments »

I have decided to chronicle my woodworking journey as part of my therapy and boy do I need it! I am 65 years old, a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and a disabled Vietnam Veteran. Oh yea, I’m also a Pastor of a Christian Church here in Waco, Texas. You’d think I had plenty to keep me active. So why would I want to add “Woodworker” to my titles? It’s simple, I have Liver Cancer and PTSD from Vietnam. Agent Orange isn’t so good for the liver. I ...

WoodForTheTrees Blog #3: Summer Bummer!

06-02-2013 10:38 AM by WoodForTheTrees | 0 comments »

Blah, summer schlummer! I have somewhat of a problem next week. As you may have read in my previous blog posts, I am a furniture making student and whereas most students look forward to their summer break, I am dreading it. I have 10 terrible weeks away from woodworking….or do I? I have several non-woodworking commitments I have to dedicate myself to throughout the summer break such as continuing my Swedish language course, a wedding and oh yeah…I need to renovate my apar...

The download has four pages. First one is for shop reference ...

Free 18th Century Style 3/4" Wooden Rabbet Plane Plans

03-22-2013 11:37 PM by Caleb James | 7 comments »

So in the spirit of getting everyone in the shop and cutting up some wood I decided to post up a measured drawing of a 3/4” wooden rabbet plane in the 18th century style. It is all wood with the exception of the blade which is easily gotten from Lie-Nielsen here. It features a conical escapement and some simple embellishments that a hand plane, chisel, and #7 sweep gouge can handle. The plans are basic with a few things that can be easily changed if you like. Such as the bed angle...

Homemade router milling machine ready to launch for others to enjoy.

02-08-2013 02:28 AM by Mark55 | 7 comments »

I have posted my machine on here a couple times and kept promising that I was going to get it to the point where I would have plans ready for it. This has turned out to be a very daunting task . At first glance of the machine it does not look too overwhelming. But, when you break it down there are many many parts and details to make this thing work the way it does. Before I go any farther though there is one person on here I want to thank for all the help . I would not have gotten this far wi...

Cornhole Board Tutorial #4: Cutting and Installing Ends, Finishing the Frame

12-10-2012 04:25 PM by StephenSchaad | 0 comments »

This lesson will complete the frame of the boards. Measure the distance between the two side frames. This will be the measurement of the end pieces. Make sure you measure this correctly, too large can be trimmed down, but too short will be waste. I use 4×4’s to hold the boards up. Make sure to flush up the end piece with the plywood and not the side piece. It’s common that the sides can be longer but these will be trimmed down with a router or sander later. Predr...

Things I Didn't Know I Had - Stack of Woodworking Magazines

07-31-2012 08:05 PM by AngieO | 17 comments »

My DH has decided to give me a better space in the garage to keep my tools and things. So right now while everything is getting rearranged it’s hard to get at all my stuff. So I’ve been planning out some projects I’d like to make. While looking on LJ’s and other sites for some projects to build I started to look for some plans. Until I really get going with this I’ll need plans to go by. I like Ana-White.com because of the easy to follow plans. If you have sit...
