Shop air cleaner #1: The build

10-15-2016 07:42 AM by JSOvens | 5 comments »

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...

Shop Projects #1: Copy of Jay Bates Conduit Lumber Rack

09-12-2016 07:23 PM by Rob_s | 2 comments »

I saw this idea on Jay's page first, and have seen versions of it as well. I’m extremely happy with the results, and planning even to add some more to the adjacent wall with maybe 2 pipes at the highest elevation only, and small, single pipe, segments running over the window. I also need to find some kind of caps, plastic hopefully, for the lowest racks just for some added safety. I decided to make one with my own twist(s) which include:1) mine is attached to a CMU wall instead of ...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #12: Time for a new Lumber Rack

11-11-2014 01:32 AM by AngieO | 10 comments »

HEY! Hello LJ’ers. I have been super busy in my shop and in my garage lately. YES… there is a difference. There USED to be a garage at my house and now it is a wood shop. On the other hand… two minutes away from my house is a storage garage. :) Anyhow… here is one of the many projects that I’ve been working on. The tote storage racks helped a bunch. And it motivated me to get the lumber racks done. I plan on building two. I have one done. So…. I did this kinda backwards this...

Miniature Router Table

10-26-2014 11:19 AM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

I had to roundover the edges of some small work-pieces. I have a router table, but the Craftsman router that goes with it needs some work before I can use it safely. So, I used a scrap piece of melamine and threw together this mini router table. Thought it might help someone else in a similar situation, so I made a video. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVU1LbCxGcY Or click the picture below:

French Cleat Square & Measuring Tool Storage

All of my measuring and squaring tools were spread out throughout the shop. I wanted them all in one place, so I made this. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IOwoCwpg54

French Cleat Screw Storage / Screw Caddy

10-04-2014 12:14 PM by Chris McDowell | 2 comments »

As to be expected, do enough woodworking and you will need various sizes of screws for all the different projects you work on. Then you end up with extra boxes of screws. I had all of mine just stacked together in a small bin. The bin was overflowing and it was just a pain to find a place to store the bin. It constantly got moved around. So, I made a small shelving unit to hold all the different screw boxes. It’s based on one I saw April Wilkerson make. You can see a link to her vide...

French Cleat Hooks - Repurpose Project

09-27-2014 12:37 PM by Chris McDowell | 3 comments »

We’ve had this old coat/key rack hanging in our garage collecting dust and whatever else didn’t have a spot. It’s basically falling apart. I also needed a dedicated spot to hang my shop apron. So, while deciding what to do, I noticed the old coat rack and came up with this. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VOvrG4Qz2w

Miter Sled on the Cheap

03-26-2014 10:30 PM by Chris McDowell | 12 comments »

I have a few projects coming up that I need to make mitered corners for, like picture frames and such. I have not had much luck in the past with my miter saw. I guess the positive stops at 45 degrees are not perfect or something because I have aligned everything on it. I have been wanting to make a miter sled for quite some time now so I decided to just do it using whatever I have on hand. I will definitely remake this later on when I can afford proper materials, but at least I have som...

Miter Saw Station #3: Complete!

03-23-2014 02:17 PM by bigfoot11 | 2 comments »

In part 1 and part 2, I completed frame, saw platform, and drawer. In this final article and video (of three part series), I created the dust shroud. The amount of dust that this contains is incredible! Before, after about 10 cuts, I would be covered in dust. Now I can basically cut until my heart’s content and still be able to breathe. There is a hardwood track so you can slide the Plexiglas out to do miter and bevel cuts or remove it completely for easy cleaning. I really dreaded c...

Miter Saw Station #2: Almost there!

03-23-2014 01:06 AM by bigfoot11 | 0 comments »

In part 1 I completed most of the work to build the frame and saw platform. In this second video (of three part series), I created the saw dust drawer and did some fine tuning. I filmed the final installment this afternoon so once I get the video and article put together, I’ll finish out the project for you guys. The final results really amazed me…especially this being my first real project I’ve shared with the world. Video: here My website with the write-up, more p...
