I’d been meaning to start posting blog entries since I joined LJ last week but since I write around 15,000 words a day to start with, I’ve been content just posting pictures of the crap I’ve cobbled together (notice I didn’t say “built” or any other verb that would suggest craftsmanship). So, while my originally-intended introduction entry is pretty much on my bio, I’m just going to spew forth here a little bit in the hope of venting some frustrati...

Woodworking For Therapy #8: Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metalic

193 days ago by Steve Kreins | 12 comments »

Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metallic, YUK! I don’t mind the food tasting funny because it isn’t going to stay down that long anyway. But I was enjoying the smell and taste of sawdust, I guess I need to wear a dust mask, but that seems to take some of the fun out of woodworking. ;) Seriously, the Nurse Practitioner asked, “Any side effects yet?” I said, “Yea, my sawdust tastes like metal filings.” She said, “I beg your pardon? Sawdust?” I c...

Home made Cyclone system video (ENG version)

287 days ago by CarpintHero | 1 comment »

This is (again) my homemade vacuum cyclone system. I added this to my blog but the video was in spanish. Now I have decided to have the english version, so … excuse my poor english :) It consits of two empty paint buckets and some vacuum hoses. Most of the sawdust and particles stay in the buckets and only a little portion of the fine dust goes to the vacuum bag. Keeping the vacuum bag empty, means that you can use the same bag for months without having to buy them, and also...

Burnt-out Motor

427 days ago by chidwickschool | 3 comments »

I’ve always known that I really should be blogging about my woodworking life, but sometimes the thought of starting yet another project (demanding a lot of my time) in the face of so many other things that have immediate priority, has seemed foolish. Indeed, at this very moment I could choose from a list of 20-30 different things that I could work on that would be a smart use of my time. From finishing my home addition (painting, flooring, tile, trim, cabinets etc) to over-due cu...

Hot shop

1114 days ago by Transition | 18 comments »

It gets a little warm in the shop during the summer. So for comfort I wear shorts. What I have found is that, as I work at the lathe, some of the copious amounts of sawdust gathers in the gap between my shoes and socks. With some woods (esp. Black Walnut for me) this is a problem. Mix the sawdust with sweat, grind into my skin over a couple of hours, and I end up with contact dermatitis (itchy, inflamed skin) on my ankles. It’s not serious but it is annoying. So I think I’ve...

In The Shop #1: Dust is getting to be a problem

1507 days ago by live4ever | 16 comments »

<dustcollectionrant> The amount of time I spend running my two shopvacs (did I say two? yes I did) is getting to be ridiculous. The bandsaw, tablesaw, and router put out a lot of dust and chips (duh). Today I routed a 3/4” groove in 30” long MDF for some T-track and everything to the left of my router table was covered in powder. My cabinet saw, though it spews most of the dust out the back and into a neat little pile under my workbench/outfeed table, makes a lot of it. ...

Resawing done!

2128 days ago by TheKingInYellow | 2 comments »

Well, I spent about 3 hours yesterday resawing that Tigerwood, and I’m pretty happy with the results. If I had a planer or thickness sander, I would have cut the wood a 1/16” thicker and then planed it, but I don’t have that option, so I used an hand sander to take down the rough spots and ridges caused by the inevitable blade wobble. Today’s plan is to route the edges with the locking 45 degree miter bit, and see how it will all snap together. After that, it̵...
