So try as I did, not a lot got done in the shop this week as far as organization goes. I got a little bit of the lumber down off my loft, but still have more to go. Instead, I was busy filling some orders for small decorative pieces. They are selling quick, 44 of them in the last couple weeks, so that part is good. Always good to stuff to coffers so to speak. It’s driving me nuts not getting the loft torn down, once that happens, the new one will go up pretty quickly then I can FINALLY ...
I did some more work to the shop a few weeks back. I finally got up the desire to get the footage put together. I must admit that I have been pretty inactive lately. I guess there must be some bear in my, wanting to hibernate all winter. I am embellishing a bit of course. I do have my chores to do around the house, and winter has not been all that bad this year, relatively speaking. It has been pretty mild. Not so much the last couple of days, but I am not going to complain. A littl...
View on YouTube This is an easy-to-build dust separator with a baffle. It works because the incoming air is forced around the outside wall, where the heavier dust and chips fall into the large trash can below. When driven with a blower like I use, the baffle removes the need for a standalone dust collection system (which not everyone has the money, space, or power to accommodate). When used with a shop-vac, this simple dust collector will greatly prolong the life of your filters and preve...
In this video I share how I cut small parts on the miter saw. I am sure this one will be cause for active commentary from the safety police and maybe the hand tool junkies for not using a fancy hand saw to cut small pieces. Well, this is the way I do it in the American Craftsman Workshop. Because if the tool doesn’t make any noise and throw a rooster tail of sawdust, how am I supposed to know that any work is getting done? I hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful;) Rem...
This is a little videoI did last summer after having a “Doh!” moment. Very fine sanding dust is difficult to generate and contain in a clean, uncontaminated condition. The go to method has been hand sanding with ~220 grit paper.This is just a little trick that came to me while I was sanding a spindle one day. I thought it was worth sharing. http://youtu.be/3unlDe9oymA Thanks for lookng in. Paul

One of the biggest pieces of the puzzle for my shop reorg project was my new lumber rack. I got it finished last night after work. Going to give me an insane amount of storage space for lumber. I left a small gap on one end for garbage can, air compressor and broom storage on the right. It is oddly addicting getting things dialed in and organized. I can’t wait to get it finished. Off to the final stage, loft tear down and rebuild! Video can be seen HERE
