Rustic Wall Sconces

03-29-2015 06:35 PM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

My wife follows shanty-2-chic.com and saw some wall sconces on the website. She decided that she wanted to make them so she asked me to help. I cut the wood and installed keyhole hangers. She did everything else. The vases are old spaghetti jars spray painted gold. The foliage is from Walmart. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fatBOlTorD8 Here is the project my wife saw on shanty-2-chic: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2015/03/diy-wine-bottle-wall-sconce.html

A Strategy for Woodworking #45: Expectations

03-02-2015 03:42 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

Expectations. We all have them when we walk into the shop. Ah yes, I have come to spend a pleasant relaxing day at the bench undisturbed, unperturbed. Then you begin work. Things can go wrong. Jigs don’t work, parts mis-align as the glue holds fast in the wrong spot, wood tears out, screw heads break off, and finishes blotch. Lest it be misunderstood that I am somehow above the fray here, that nothing ever goes wrong for me, that I am the calm sea in the eye of every storm at my bench, ...

Woodworking For Therapy #26: RUMORS OF MY DEMISE SOMEWHAT EXAGGERATED

02-25-2015 08:24 PM by Steve Kreins | 12 comments »

RUMORS OF MY DEMISE WERE SOMEWHAT EXAGGERATED when a friend of mine recently said, “No seriously! They said your were dead!” Apparently a Veteran’s Group I used to attend just figured I kicked the bucket and told my friend I was dead. I don’t think this is true, but I am asking for a second opinion. I wanted to give an update to my LJ friends. Woodworking is still my therapy of choice. The problem right now is one of energy and safety. My cancer has gotten much w...

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

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...

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...
