Washer Dryer Stand - with built in detergent dispenser

02-17-2015 04:47 PM by GlassImpressions | 4 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! http://youtu.be/qDOujXINlE0 Typical washer and dryers are lower to the ground. You can buy stands for each unit for around $150-250. I decided to build mine and incorporate stylish hardware, larger drawers, classy hutch, and a special detergent feature. The build consists of MDF, Poplar face frames, brushed nickel hardware, full extension drawer slides, Oil based primer, and white paint. Primary construction method was ra...

turnings #6: two natural-edge jacaranda bowls

08-15-2009 01:02 PM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I didn’t take process shots, but I rough-turned these two over the last week or so from the halves of a single jacaranda log resawed in half. Each was bagged immediately in its own shavings to slow drying and resist checking, though one has checked a bit anyway. Once they’ve dried enough to stop moving, I’ll chuck them up again and turn them back to round, and refine their shapes. I still consider myself in early training-mode, and as such, these are just more training piece...

Home made Cyclone system video (ENG version)

10-13-2013 09:33 PM 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...

PVC Dust Collection Blast Gate - self cleaning design with a detent feature

02-17-2015 05:23 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/ACLFMAfV1fk I recently added a Clearvue Cyclone dust collector to my shop. I plumbed it completely with 6” and 4” PVC piping. I needed a way to close off each branch to maximize the performance of the dust collector. Commercially available plastic blast gates are way to cheap and clog easily. The metal blast gates that solve this issue are p...

I've got wood!

07-28-2012 01:42 PM by BritBoxmaker | 29 comments »

Just for those of you in the States who think your wood is expensive. The little beauty in the foreground is African Ebony. 32cm x 5.5cm sq’. It cost me £25GBP, thats about $40US.Bringing up the rear is a piece of Pau Amarello at a relatively modest £3, $4.80. Ebony is very difficult to get over here in anything bigger than turning blank sizes. Unless you are a banker/oil baron.

The real cost of making a pen

03-06-2012 06:10 PM by PanamaJack | 4 comments »

I’m frequently asked, “What does it actually cost to make a pen?” (Mostly at arts and craft shows I am attending or participating in.) (I keep a copy at all art shows now) Here’s the list of items that I use to make a pen. The good news is that after the first pen you make they become much less expensive. Some of these items can be eliminated or something else can be substituted for what is listed. If you already have a table saw, or band saw, a drill press or other items the initial ...
