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...

Sandpaper Storage Rack

02-17-2015 05:13 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/KIjZJoHwwB4 My solution to storing my sandpaper was not ideal. As you can see in the pictures, the paper has curled from the previous storage method. I make a simple tray style rack to store each grit of paper separately. Materials: MDF, Hardboard, Glue, Label Maker Construction Methods: Rabbits, and grooves, glue. I filmed the build on my YouT...

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...

My Introduction to Old Hand Saws

02-09-2015 04:23 PM by WoodshopNerd | 7 comments »

Last year I had the opportunity to drive from Missouri to California to visit my 92 year old Grandmother. It’s always great to see her and visit the house that she and my Grandfather lived in my whole life. About 15 years ago my Grandfather passed away, and left behind a collection of unique tools in his garage that he had amassed over his lifetime. It was on this visit, last year, that I found an old saw hanging in a locker in the garage. I had no knowledge of hand saws at the time, bu...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #3: ASSEMBLY, Installation & 1st Use

01-27-2015 08:16 AM by Morton WoodWorks | 7 comments »

First off, wow, I can’t believe that I never finished this blog. And, for that, I apologize but I was too excited after I completed it that I never took the time to get back to it. So, here it goes. Unfortunately, since it is all put together, all I have to provide is the minimal pictures that I took during assembly. Nothing about putting it together was very difficult, but ensuring an air-tight seal makes it run all the better. The first aspect of construction is to create the...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #11: Steve Ramsey

01-18-2015 07:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 15 comments »

I think I first found Steve Ramsey’s videos on YouTube while looking for videos of or about Norm Abram. Steve had put up a short video, a vlog post really, about Norm’s retirement. Steve is a YouTube woodworking superstar. He puts out a project almost every week (occasionally he takes a vacation week,) and he’s the one who sets the standard for style and popularity. He definitely does not need any plug from me, but I knew I’d need to acknowledge him eventually...

History #1: History of Woodcarving

10-22-2014 06:39 PM by VobliX | 2 comments »

Woodcarving has been around just about as long as man has been upon this earth. Due to wood being a material that will not withstand the test of time, woodcarvings must be protected and taken care of if they are to endure. Unlike stone carvings or sculptures that might be buried for thousands of years, due to wars and conquests or for whatever the reason and survive, imagine what would happen to a woodcarving or woodsculpture under those conditions. Between the elements and the insects, in a ...
