My Woodworking Journey #4: My First Table From Two Years Ago

02-03-2021 01:49 PM by Gerald Etto | 2 comments »

Throwback to September 2018, when I made my first table after enrolling in Steve Ramsey’s The Weekend Woodworker course. There are 101 flaws with this table, but I remember feeling good at the moment. I made something, instead of consuming something. That meant a lot. I have since recycled this table into a cyclone dust collector cart, but I did use it for over a year. My daughter did her artwork on it when she was 7 and got paint all over it. I cherish those memories and perh...

Vintage Lathe Need Your Help!

11-16-2020 07:25 PM by RedShedWoodworks | 4 comments »

I was gifted this amazing lathe that works extremely well! I have been able to turn lamp bases, vases, rolling pins, and so much more! HOWEVER, I would like to try some bowls and need to figure out how to change the spur drive out for the bowl clamp! I have a plate that screws onto the head-stock, but I need to get the spur off. The other spurs that I have look like they are just pressed into the head-stock, but I cannot figure out a way to get it out of the head-stock! Thanks for an...

Vise choice stumping you ? Have a small shop ? DIY Moxon vice

10-20-2020 09:29 PM by OldBull | 1 comment »

There is a lot of noise when searching woodworking topics. Everything I have purchased or built for my shop so far has cost me time and effort. Some were especially difficult because of the opposing opinions on the internet. The noise can be loud and polar opposite opinions split 50/50. The latest cause for strained eyes has been which bandsaw, which boils down to bearings or ceramics. But I did find an incredibly good answer to which vise I could get that fit my needs, diverse, function...

Ladder Shelf #1: Building the Frames

10-12-2020 09:26 PM by MasonJay | 1 comment »

This will be the second… third ladder shelf build that I’ve done recently. The first, made of pine, was a travesty. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure though, and I had someone buy it from me so I recovered the cost of the materials. They painted it a sent a picture of it loving what they had. One major mistake I made with this first attempt was not realizing that I was building to sides that mirrored each other. So instead of using pocket screws on both the insi...

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 Carthttps://youtu.be/WyBuRjO54NM 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...
