Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

07-27-2014 at 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...

Perhaps some folks on LJ might find it helpful as they work through similar issues. I found an image on the net that serves as an inspirationIt will not be a copy at all, since I’ll be using a thinner slab, different wood, and a variation on the design. I’d already decided to do a w...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #1: Choosing a Board, Initial Flattening

07-24-2014 at 01:02 AM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

Four months ago I asked some advice on how to construct a waterfall leg on a live edge table. I’m finally beginning construction after several things got in the way. The first step was finding the right board. The nearest sawmill to me (19 vs. 45 miles one way) was clean out of live edge pieces. I called the next closest sawmill and he was looking at $150-200 for a slab, so I decided to take a “chance on two 1 boards on CL on Craigslist. They had been sitting in a barn for g...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

07-10-2014 at 05:52 AM by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...
