Dust Collection #3: Simple, Cheap, and Easy Blast Gates

01-16-2016 09:56 PM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

Sometimes motivation behind building something as opposed to buying has to do with availability. Sometimes it has to do with cost. Sometimes it has to do with quality. In this case it has to do with all three. I set out to build blast gates with scrap material I had laying around. Mainly I did this because I didn’t want to have to order blast gates and deal with the shipping, and the cheap ones seemed a little….flimsy? There are high quality ones out there, but why pay for th...

Dust Collection #2: 3-Stage Dust Collector Filter Box

01-16-2016 02:52 AM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

After modifying my Harbor Freight dust collector, I needed a filter for the discharge of the blower. The dust collector mod did a great job eliminating a majority of the dust, but it was still discharging fine dust into my workspace – something I didn’t want to be breathing. This time I drew up a plan in Sketchup and used it to guide me in this build. The build was rather straightforward, and a made small changes here and there where it made sense. I call it a 3-stage filter b...

Shop Organization #1: Stowable Sliding Rotating Planer Stand

01-15-2016 01:41 AM by ThomasLightle | 3 comments »

Space, or the lack thereof, is always the main concern for the owner of a small shop. I have been trying to figure out what to do with my planer ever since I purchased it. It weighs 92 pounds, so I can’t easily store it on a shelf or in a drawer. I also don’t have enough room for a dedicated planer stand. Up until the making of the video, I just kept it on top of my workbench, sliding it around when I needed it or to get it out of the way. There had to be a better way.The fol...

Videos by HuckD #17: Dowel Jigs 1 and 2

01-14-2016 06:37 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

I’ve made a couple of dowel jigs to use on a table and bench project that I’m making from 2×12 Southern Yellow Pine. One is useful for joining two pieces of 2 by # lumber and the other is for 4×4 lumber. They’re very inexpensive as they are made from a scrap piece of 1” oak and some “steel spacers” from Lowes. Both have proven to be accurate and easy to use. https://youtu.be/lZRZTXYKiJE

Dust Collection #1: Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector

01-14-2016 01:22 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector I made this before I started creating videos for YouTube. This is my interpretation of the Thein Baffle reconfiguration of a Harbor Freight dust collector. I did this for a couple of reasons: First, my shop is tiny, so I needed to fit the dust collector into a smaller footprint. Second, I wanted an easier way to empty my dust collector. Third, I had future plans for this collector to practically make it 100% efficient. Feel free to comment or...

Butterfly Dining Table #9: Finish and Final Assembly

01-13-2016 12:34 AM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

In the last episode of this build, I start by applying a dye to help keep the walnut looking dark over the years. I also have to do some special prep work so I don’t dye the maple inlay around the top. When that is ready, I then put on the final finish which is a wiping poly. I move the table into my dining room, and then perform the final assembly. Done! As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in the shop, follow me on Instag...
