Router plane build

05-20-2020 10:42 PM by RLA1974 | 8 comments »

After a couple of years of trying to find an antique router plane and being dissatisfied with various hags-tooth and poor-man’s-router attempts, I decided to bite the bullet and make one with all the features I like stolen from the old Stanleys. In order to future-proof against later needs, I designed it to use the Veritas router plane blades. I found these brass knurled nuts at Home Depot and some 10/32 brass threaded rod for a depth adjustment mechanism. I had a 1” wood...

DIY Air scrubber #1: Ordering filters and designing

11-24-2019 02:30 AM by jbswearingen | 0 comments »

I ordered three 20×20x4 MERV 11 and three 20×20x1 MERV 8 filters to build what I hope will become an efficient air scrubber for my 24×24x12’ shop. I intend on eventually building two, one for each side of my shop. My filters came in a few days ago, so I designed it in Sketchup tonight. Fan is a 220V 4-speed blower my FIL gave me from a furnace he replaced in a building; he’s an HVAC guy, so I can sometimes score good, used motors and blowers from him. Case i...

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

07-18-2019 01:28 AM by retired_guru | 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...

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...
