I have been planning to get a Dust Deputy for some time. But being a lazy booger I didn’t want a small 5 gal container that I would have to empty more frequently. Easter weekend I scored about a 30 gal plastic barrel with a clamp ring lid while I was visiting in-laws in Windsor, ON. It is perfect, works great and doesn’t need to be emptied as often. The first thing I did to test it was to clean out the bottom bag and attached filter on my main dust collector. Damn this thing works...
I recently finished building a federal style card table loosely patterned after the plan in FWW issue #59, “Federal Card Table” by Michael Dunbar. That table in turn is based on a piece from the period, thought to be from Baltimore. I still consider myself a newbie, and was shocked at how well the finished table came out! Now I’m going to make a second table with a few improvements. If you’d like to follow along I can promise you that we will take an interesting and unconve...
My Rockler bench cookies came today and I can’t wait to try them out !

Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...
I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!
