I make simple boxes, mostly of cedar with poplar inlays. There are many fine ways to make boxes and this is about the simplest. I make them 11”x8”x2 1/2” deep with hinged lid. 8” is my limit of the width of wood so anything over that will have a splice in it, which I avoid doing. I start by planeing and re-sawing the 1” thick rough eastern red cedar to 3/8” thickness on my band saw. I then cut strips to 2 1/4” to form the sides ...
Today I finished my miter saw station upgrade for now. I added a hood around the saw and ran dust collection hoses for the saw and the OSS sander. Dust Shroud T fitting with blast gate for the saw. The blast gate mounts up underneath the drop down bench and then it extends to the edge of the bench so I can access it from the front The tee branches off throught the bench and to the sander. This is a bad picture but you can see at the top is the dust collector ...
If this comes out right the first picture is the plywood disc glued and screwed to the pulley. After running for several hours the disc came unglued so I drilled and tapped the pulley. The second picture is another view of the pulley and disc. This next picture shows the screws counter sunk through the Velcro. I included a picture of the single screw that keeps the bucket from turning. I had to put tape on the lid to keep it on. I found this out when I went to check on the ...
I liked the bead sander posted by Filinvested. And I came across a old blender that I considered using but it was too small . I had a old 1/2” shaft motor 1/2”x 2” pulley with one flat side -$6. 5” plywood circle Velcro from a craft store $10. A yard Found plastic bucket Found Pyrex lid that happened to fit my bucketI cut some foam to line the inside of the bucket and fill in the small gap between the plywood and bucket wall...
Well, I didn’t get the Worksharp 2000 for Christmas so in Lumberjock fashion I made my own. I did get a new set of the Stanley Sweetheart chisels (review to come) and needed a way to sharpen them. I was going to just bite the bullet and go purchase a workshop but with the latest reviews from Stumpy and others I had some great ideas to work with. Some how I ended up with two Delta 5” disc sanders so I decided to upgrade one. So first things first, I removed all the accessories ...
Been a bit slack and well christmas and all that no excuse… anyway both speakers now glued and set, the back piece is not yet glued in, so we can assemble the wiring to the actual speakers when finished etc. Clamps are off and the long slow timely process of sanding to get them loooking good. This will also hide any inperfections of our glue up… Doh Have taped newspaper over speaker faces to protect them the best we can, so no dust can get in anyway. Also have done the same to ...

Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “ Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut tab...
Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...
