Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #104: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart

07-18-2019 01:28 AM by technoslick | 9 comments »

The Dungeon Workshop continues to be a war zone, but progress is being had, albeit s-l-o-w-l-y. This evening I finished one of two identical dust control builds, based on this YouTube video: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart | Dustopper & Ridgid Vac Cart I liked the space-saving design of John’s design. Floor space is at a premium and I need a portable system, one at each end of the workshop. This is what the first unit looks lik...

I get a lot of questions about how to start woodworking. I realize that most people here are probably already in the craft, but there may be some who are just thinking about it.

EGO 14 Inch Chainsaw

05-02-2019 09:21 PM by Not Here | 3 comments »

It’s not woodworking, but I have to say that I am super impressed with the power of my EGO 14 inch chainsaw. I highly recommend this for a typical yard use chainsaw. I did a review on it here: I have other videos that you may like as well.

Alaska Cabin #2: Diamond Willow & Agate Cabin Kitchen Lights

02-06-2019 01:33 AM by Matt Snyder | 2 comments »

After my diamond willow and agate bed lights turned out so good I decided to do something similar in my “kitchen”. Running across the front wall of the kitchen is an electrical conduit tube that looks ugly and I wanted to hide it behind some diamond willow while adding some LED lighting. I looked through the pile of wood I harvested in the spring and found a strait enough piece that had some character and was big enough to cover everything up. To make it fit flush to the wall, I...

Router Table Upgrade

02-04-2019 11:54 AM by Matt Snyder | 3 comments »

When I built my workbench I made a folding table, hinged to my workbench wall, that I envisioned holding my fancy Bosch router table. In practice it felt awkward with the table so high and it also blocked the cabinet behind it. Time for a new plan. I took the mounting plate off the commercial table and traced it out on the center of the table. An inch in from the line I used a jigsaw to cut out a hole for the router and base to hang through. I then used a router guide to rout ou...

Building a REAL Lathe Part 1

10-08-2018 02:55 PM by RexKrueger | 3 comments »

Friends: There are a lot of DIY wood lathes out there, but most of those are small, low-power machines that won’t handle large pieces of wood, do bowls, or handle long spindles. I’m in the middle of building a REAL lathe with 16 inches of swing and 32 inches between centers. By itself, this wouldn’t be such a big deal, but I’m going to build this lathe for LESS than $150 and I’m using common materials and tools that any woodworker either has or can get thei...

My Dust Collector Mod #4: A little paint, a few screws...

09-13-2018 06:28 PM by BrettLuna | 0 comments »

Progress has been slow thanks to various distractions but I now have the caster base painted with Krylon “Hammered” spray paint, in black to give it a textured, industrial look. I also got the initial assembly of the chassis done: Assembly was good ol’ glue and pocket screws. Once the paint on the base has cured completely, I’ll set the chassis and dust separator in place to dial in where to mount the cone support. A complication with that is that cones are rou...
