Bandsaw Dust Collection

642 days ago by Brett | 10 comments »

As I continue to make more projects out of wood, I find that I rely on my bandsaw for more and more of them. The bandsaw is great for cutting curves, resawing wood and for cutting blanks for woodturning. The bandsaw is very versitile and comes in useful for many projects but it does have one major drawback, SAWDUST! The bandsaw makes LOTS of sawdust. Not only does it make a lot of dust, it throws it around too! A majority of the dust settles in the lower wheel housing and stays there. ...

Table Tennis Anyone?

713 days ago by Brett | 8 comments »

How about Ping Pong? Our family has been wanting a ping pong table for a while now and we never picked one up. They are kinda large and we don’t have the space to leave it set up permantly and we don’t have the space to store it either, at least the kind with the wheels and all that attached. To buy an outdoor table gets pretty spendy. I decided that I would use a piece of MDF to make a two piece top that can be set up on our “craft” table and taken down and st...

Making a Crosman 1377 Pump Arm...

646 days ago by Brett | 0 comments »

... in three parts. This is the first of three videos showing how to make a pump arm for a Crosman 1377 pump pistol. These pellet guns are relatively inexpensive to purchase, highly modifiable and just plain fun to shoot! A Google search for “Crosman 1377” or “Custom 1377” will come up with a bunch of images of some amazing 1377s that have been customized. I have made two other stocks with pump arms and I thought that some non-woodworking or new to woodworking ...

An Old Door

724 days ago by Brett | 5 comments »

We live in an older home. With that comes some need of making home repairs and improvements. Our house has some nice single panel fir doors but they have been coated with many layers of paint through the years. Quite some time ago, I got the urge to see what treasure lay beneath the layers of paint on one of the doors. This was a test to see if I wanted to reveal the wood on all the doors in the house. This task proved to be a real chore and not one that I thought was of enough value t...

Ammo Box

657 days ago by Brett | 6 comments »

Hi folks! One of my boys is really into military type stuff (read anything camoflauge and survival/self sufficiency oriented). He is a 9 year old boy, what can I say? ;) Anyway, he has a birthday coming up and he has requested many such items as described above. What I wanted to do was make him a small chest to be able to store his “boy” items in. I decided to make this box for him and we will wrap his presents and place them inside the “ammo box”. He will re...

A Cupcake Stand

121 days ago by Brett | 3 comments »

Hi Jocks! I had been wanting to make another quick project so out to the shop I went and made another cupcake stand. This one is for my oldest daughter who just completed a cake decorating class. Hopefully this will be a good motivator for her to make some nicely decorated cupcakes to see and display, if only temporarily! ha. Thanks for checking out this video. It was spur of the moment but still fun and satisfying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUd4nIzSq7M&list=UUU_N6BtSIC...
