Beginner's Guide - The Vacuum Press & Veneering #1: Bag Storage

2607 days ago by David | 13 comments »

VACUUM PRESS BAG STORAGE CONTAINERI recently was inspired to start veneering using the vacuum press by Neil Lamens at Furnitology Productions. If you haven’t had a chance to check out his website and video blog, it is really worthwhile to pay a visit sometime. He is currently finishing a contemporary veneered ash lingerie chest. I have been fascinated by this series. He has really focused on design elements and shop efficiency. His two episodes ( Episode 6 - Part 1 and Episode 6 - Part ...

PVC Plumbing Dust Collection Solution

1207 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 9 comments »

I have an old canister household vacuum that refuses to die, so I use it with allot of my hand held power tools, specifically my ROS, biscuit joiner, pocket hole jig, and a small belt sander. In the past to connect my tool of choice to the vacuum I would always jimmy rig something up with duct tape or just hold the hose on the dust collection fitting..not good. I went to Home Depot one day to look around in the plumbing section for a solution, and I found this…a 1” to 3/4” c...

DIY wood stabilization #1: Creating a vacuum container

564 days ago by shampeon | 17 comments »

The thermoplastic handle scales on my folk’s Wüstof knife broke, and I thought I’d replace it with some wood scales. I had some offcuts of claro walnut that were the right size, but I wanted to make sure that the new walnut scales would hold up to kitchen use. I did a little research in some knife-making web sites and forums and learned a bit about wood stabilization, where you impregnate wood with some material (epoxy, resin, etc.) to harden it and make it more durable. Some h...

Vacuum splitter and a ‘dust can’ (this one is for Dan / Maveric)

981 days ago by mafe | 18 comments »

Vacuum splitter and a ‘dust can’this one is for Dan / Maveric. Yes the dust goes to Dan this blog is dedicated to him and his recovery… Why? Because Dan just had a terrible time and this might have some roots in the dust from the shop! I personally sometimes sneeze and cough when I am done with sanding and I have had my thoughts on this for a while.My Vacuum is a shop vacuum, but just a standard one from Atlas copco and I used simple 50 mm 2 inch plumbing to distribute it s...

Vacuum Frame Press/Assembly Table

861 days ago by Ger21 | 4 comments »

Since it may be another 2 years before I finish this, I can’t really post it as a project, so it’s going here.I’ve been using my Joe Woodworker vacuum bag and press for about 10 years on and off, and have done a lot of veneering with it. (See my kitchen in my Projects). But I’ve always wanted to build a frame press, to make it easier to do larger parts, and make sure my veneered panels were flat.At the same time, I’ve also always wanted an assembly table, as I t...

My Cyclone Vacuum Cart

190 days ago by Garth | 1 comment »

Here are some pictures of a cart I made with one of the Oneida Dust Deputy cyclone. One of the features that I really like about what I made is the outlet/switch on the side. It allows me to plug in something, such as router table and then have an easy on/off switch for the vacuum. Also, the vacuum had a tray attached to hold the attachments and I mounted that to help hold the attachments. I will also say I am amazed at how well the cyclone protects the filter in the vacuum. Here is...

Phil Thien inspired cyclone separator

977 days ago by rmoore | 3 comments »

For those who already have one of these, you’ll understand my enthusiasm. For those who don’t, get busy building one. I don’t have a dust collection system, just a 16 gallon shop vac. I’ve been looking at these for months now. I finally got a barrel from work and started building. After cutting the first baffle too small, I got the second one right. I wasn’t expecting it to work as good as it does, but, boy am I happy with the results. When I first turned it o...

Home made Cyclone system video (ENG version)

282 days ago by CarpintHero | 1 comment »

This is (again) my homemade vacuum cyclone system. I added this to my blog but the video was in spanish. Now I have decided to have the english version, so … excuse my poor english :) It consits of two empty paint buckets and some vacuum hoses. Most of the sawdust and particles stay in the buckets and only a little portion of the fine dust goes to the vacuum bag. Keeping the vacuum bag empty, means that you can use the same bag for months without having to buy them, and also...

Kitchen Remodel #5: Vacuum Veneering for the Buffet / Hutch

2605 days ago by Karson | 7 comments »

Well it’s been a weekend, not a lot of work done, but enough to make you think that you’ve accomplished something. Two screw-up’s, two corrections, one modification. Only had to recut two pieces of wood, not too major. Could have been a lot worse, and re-planed 6 boards that were too thick.I left off with the making of the lower case for the Buffet / Hutch. I stated that I needed to do some veneering and also some engineering for the mid drawer slides. I’ve done the veneering and done no ...
