I ordered, some time back, a kit from R, and some flexible hose from WC for a 2.5” systemsince mine is powered by a shop vacwith a dust deputy and a grease barrel filtering out the stuff the shopvac doesnt like Lets start with my Table Saw, since its where the system is centered. The panel I made and mentioned in last blog entry fell off and was always a temporary thing anyway. so i made one out of 3/8 recycled plywood, drilled and installed with screws ( another temporary fix ti...
The last video on building my workbench. http://youtu.be/n0iY1vvdSCM
Onward and upward. I made the drawers out of hard maple. The front of the drawers were made using a Porter cable dovetail jig to produce half blind dovetails. The back of the drawers was simple butt joint construction, using glue and brad nails. The rear piece was ripped short so it could be installed, then the bottom slid in. I anchored the bottom with several short staples across the back. This method works out pretty well for me. Cutting the dovetails on the front only reduces produc...
Okay, so I found the William Ng version of this video first, then I found the WoodWhisperer version. William Ng is smarter than me, so I could not understand him, but WoodWhisperer made William’s method much more understandable for me, so here’s the link to the video. I know you old hands know all about this, but I’m so green that the basics still get me excited. Go to time marker 21.45 to see the method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uE9f4bp_wm8&list=PLLPBqw5g...
I used hard maple for the face frames, drawer fronts, doors and drawers.It all started like this I used a track saw to rip a clean edge on every board. That worked great. I also ran them across the jointer at some point during the milling. Looks a lot better after a few passes through the planer And a few passes through the drum sander. Then I cut the face frame pieces. Ready to start building the face frames and rough cut the remaining pieces for the rails and stiles for ...
I recently posted a picture frame project that I built for charity, and I included a photo of the cove jig that I used to create the profile on the frame. Since I got some questions about the jig, I decided to shoot a quick video that covers the jig in more detail. Honestly, Marc “The Wood Whisperer” Spagnuolo has an excellent video that covers the basics on these jigs, and it’s where I got the design from. In my video, I just go through my jig and how I use it. I find...
Thought I’d post a few pics of the latest incarnation of ZCI that I made for my Craftsman 113 series table saw. These saws are a little frustrating for someone looking to make his own ZCIs, since it is necessary to rabbet a very thin lip (3/32”) around the outside of the insert for it to rest flush against the table. This is in contrast to most saws nowadays, which use inserts that are simply like extrusions of a basic 2-D shape, easily duplicated with a straight router bit and gu...

I purchased a used Unisaw on CL for$ 500, from the S/N it is 1978. On the same day I purchased a Biesemeyer fence fro $200. So $700, not bad. I then put new bearings on the Arbor and motor, took it apart and painted it. I previously had a Delta 34-335 10” tilting arbor saw (Table Saw) and wonted to bolt them together so I could keep a dedicated Dado Blade in the 34-335 ( of course I had to rebuild that saw also). Well this was a challenge, because the 3 HP motor on the Unisaw stuck...
I have been planning a coffee table project for about a year now and it has gone through a number of design concepts. I have always wanted to build a table out of walnut and contrast is with maple accents. This is a recurring theme in my projects. I struggled with the theme and style for a long time. The intent was to be simple, but with some minor details that stand out and increase the technical aspect of the work. I also like square and simple lines with solid members. I am not a fan ...
