A popular home-built shop accessory these days is a filtered shop air cleaner, of which I’ve had the privilege to see several designs. Whether floor standing or ceiling mounted, or using box fans or centrifugal blowers, they all have some things in common: they are fairly simple and inexpensive to build. My workshop is located in a tandem two-car garage, in rainy Vancouver, BC, Canada, thus it is not always feasible to leave my garage door open for long lengths of time (woodworking i...
I had to organize all my sanders and sandpaper. I used 1×8 and some 1/4” plywood. Check it out, subscribe and share the video. Visit my channel here.

She knows all about my workbench and my woodworking YouTube videos so she knew that this would be an easy project for me. So, she asked me to make one for her grandchildren. Gluing the cleats to the top Her grandchildren, Billy and Alex live in another state with their mother and my friend was going to deliver the bookcase to them. Actually, that was my biggest challenge on ...
The busier that I get, the more I want to do. Why does it work that way? I never understood the concept of "boredom." Even at a young age. With an entire world of things to do for work, leisure and fun, I don't know how anyone could feel that they were bored. I suppose it is the way we approach things and life in general. I am always amazed at how quickly time seems to pass. If I had one thing that I could change in this world, it would be to slow things down a ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXDdAhpPCok I built these toy chests for my Nieces (they aren’t technically my nieces but I consider them family!), we’ve been talking about it with them and their parents for a couple years now, and one of the twins is particularly interested in my woodworking shop. They always have to look for our cat who is scared of everyone and hides out whenever someone knocks on the door, but usually the cat is hiding out in the shop, and the curious kids...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHvg5hbk0r4 Hi Folks! Over the weekend, my dad and I built this new workbench that I can use for woodworking! The whole thing is made of 2×4s, with an 18mm plywood top. Enjoy the video!
Recently, I built a rather large storage unit for my workshop. Once it was built I noticed that there was a big face that could be used as a back drop for my You-Tube videos. I had several ideas but a chalkboard won the day. Now it can be used to draw diagrams, write comments or anything that is interesting. Here is the link to my You-Tube video, (https://youtu.be/RS3n_1miBtg) The material list: One – sheet of plywood (cut to size) One – sheet of OSB (cut to size an...

The tip, is to make sure you keep a tube of Superglue in your First Aid Kit, after washing the woun...
