Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Table saw blade hard to go down????

01-27-2016 02:30 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 4 comments »

I have a General 50-200r model table saw. Lowering the blade is a chore becuase it feels like its binding. I’ve squirt some liquid wrench & WD40 on the worm drive screws & worked it up & down. It’s gotten better but there is still an issue. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue & what’s a good lubricant to use on these gears as well? Also what would be a good cleaner to clean the gears with as well? Thanks all.

Shop stuff #34: The final episode

01-26-2016 09:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I finally got around to editing and completing the video series on the essential oil cabinet that I made for my son for Christmas. Lightworks is still a bit of a chore and will be for a while yet, but it is not locking up and being frustrating like Windows Movie Maker was. I still have a long way to go, but it is fun learning. My son liked the cabinet and most people who have laid eyes on it do to. It was a big complex job and I find that shooting video while working makes it go almost ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #69: Towel Rack

01-26-2016 01:04 AM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

The weather here in Colombia is such that, even when it is winter it remains at least warm, we have no heating, and drying clothes, bedding etc. is no problem, we have a covered drying area outside, but after a shower, my towel until now, has been draped over anything available upstairs, where it has dried but looked unsightly, it was time to do something about it. I pondered on design, as I had some 1”dowel and plywood, but in the end went with trusty 2×4!! For the first time I...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #68: More Saw-horses

01-26-2016 12:46 AM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

Space is at a premium in my Shop, and having two saw-horses, albeit stacked, was space I could not afford, I also wanted some folding saw-horses, because I often find myself working at the Mother-in-law’s, and don’t always want to have to take the trailer, so after searching various sites including Lumberjocks, I decided on a variation of the Shop Dog by WoodshopDude. Making them smaller, and chunkier. I started off by cutting the parts from 2×4, and the rails I cut down f...

Double Single Bed #5: Bed Bolts & Final Assembly

01-25-2016 02:55 PM by ttocsmi | 0 comments »

With the dry-fit of the headboards complete, it was time to drill holes for the bed bolts. (Sorry, no pictures. I’m sure you can imagine what holes look like.) The 3/8 inch holes through the posts were done earlier on the drill press (see part #3). Two were off-center by about 1/16 inch, but the rest were spot-on. To bore into the rails, I set up the mini-jig below for each joint. The rail is held in place using some scrap 4×4 and clamps. The shoulders are flush with t...

I finally started my dedicated mitre saw station and as you can see it’s basically going to be 2 36” wide cabinets with drawers and 2 cabinet doors to each unit .. In the middle I’m going to put a shelf and frame to support the mitre saw and also make it flush to the top of the cabinets so I cut my 8’ lumber . The cabinets are made out of furniture grade poplar and its dimensions are 36” wide 40” tall and 24” deep.. I planing...

Humidors #4: Humidor # 2 - Learning from my mistakes (Bubinga and Walnut)

01-18-2016 04:08 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

So after being so careful with my first humidor only to screw it up on the hinge install, I tried a few different techniques on some scrap for installing the hinges than decided to build another box. This time I decided I would do mitered corners with veneer splines for strength, since I didn’t want to mess around with edging. I had a beautiful piece of quarter sawn Bubinga that had been sitting on my rack for a few months now, begging to be turned into something. I decided it wanted...

Humidors #3: Humidor #1 Red Oak with Walnut veneer

01-17-2016 09:14 PM by McPheel | 1 comment »

In continuation with my previous post, I began this experience with a trip to Windsor Plywood to source the necessary materials. I ended up finding a nice piece of quarter sawn Spanish Cedar which was 4/4 by 6” – 8’ long, finished on 2 faces; a nice piece of quarter sawn Red Oak which was 4/4 by 6” – 6’ long, finished on all sides; A full sheet of birch plywood and a roll of Walnut veneer. I took a trip over to Lee Valley to get some quadrant hinges and als...
