My dust colection set-up

01-23-2017 04:48 PM by Blake Haskins | 2 comments »

as woodworkers, we strive for the best dust collection possible, well maybe no the best but enough that our machines will work. I’ve seen many videos of people showing their set-up, however I haven’t found one similar to mine, so hear is my video.— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXC0T1fUDOo

Blum blumotion tandem drawer slides - lessons learned

01-23-2017 02:19 PM by Papple36 | 2 comments »

Blum tandem are the greatest, but are finacky to install-First they are 3/4 longer than the stated length so be sure you have the vack to front clearance – ie an 18 inch drawer box needs 18 3/4 of space in the frame-Next, be absolutely sure that your drawer box back hole is located correctly, or you will suffer the latches not connecting properly-It f your drawer sides have any belly, you need to straighten that out-Everything must be square and level-Using 1/2inch front and rear sides ...

Pine

01-22-2017 07:27 PM by Blake Haskins | 3 comments »

as woodworkers we tend to underappreciate woods that are not mahogany or walnut, but I think we should appreciate the unique characteristics that can be found in pine when explored long enough, which is easy to do thanks to its availability. below is a link to a box I made out of a unique piece of fire knot pine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH1wFVv5IDA

Hints and Tips #26: To the last drop

01-08-2017 03:03 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

This is a tip that I got from the pooroldchap YouTube channel [link]. He posts what he terms Workshop Waffles where he talks about things in his workshop. If you use WD-40 or a similar aerosol propelled lubrication oil this may help you save a few cents. I took an old metal oil can that once contained sewing machine oil. I’m not sure if anything like this can still be purchased or if they’ve all gone over to plastic. A plastic bottle may be usable, but you’ll need a t...

Super Gripper Pusher Simplified

12-26-2016 02:20 AM by CrazyRussianWoodShop | 1 comment »

Hi Guys, Today I wanted to present you with the simplified version of a Gripper I made earlier I used plexiglass for the frame because it is strong, light and less bulky than plywood The rest of the Gripper is made of Baltic birch plywood I used the sticky anti-skid strips for the legs (homedepot)And made a simple eccentric wheel to act as a balancing plate on the original grr-ripper You can see the details and dimensions in this 3.5 min video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #4: How to Set Up a Hand Plane before Shaving

12-10-2016 08:12 PM by Humus Workshop | 4 comments »

This is the story: after tinkering the plane I got so tired that at night I dreamed that I was at the beach using the plane like a mirror. So check out my dream come true here: https://youtu.be/eIzW6Nsi0aE The plane is a Stanley n5 with the sole and edges in a very poor condition. In addition, the blade holder (frog) was not flat so the blade did not work well. Although it’s a work that needs patience, believe me that you will have a happy ending and the difference is well worth ...

How do you dry wood?

12-09-2016 12:23 PM by monkeyman83 | 4 comments »

I will start with a little back story. At the end of September, I came into possession of two oak logs from a local tree service. The guys in the yard cut it up into sections for me so I could handle it myself. I then split each piece in half and rough turned a bowl blank from it. I ended up with 24 rough turned bowl blanks about 1 to 1.5 inches thick. This wood was extremely wet. The tree had just been cut down the week I took it. The bowls took me about 3 weeks to turn. These bowls ...

the tool tower fails

12-06-2016 04:13 PM by oldguy2 | 0 comments »

If you go to my home page and projects, I have a tool tower with pegboard sides and next to the router table.I think the original idea was taken from wood or some other shop organization ideas. They had a 2 ft by 2ft base with frame up to 8 feet and slide in trays for power tools. Pegboard sides gave more outside storage and casters made it mobile. I think they had a mobile base for storage and tool stand. So I modified a metal stand adding the top, it already had the casters and a botto...
