Small Projects #53: Walnut Air Filter Stand

08-25-2021 02:01 AM by Madmark2 | 7 comments »

We have pets and with pets comes pet dander and allergies. We bought a Grizzly G0738 two stage (5um & 1um) filter. Grizzly G0738 two stage, three speed air filter w/ remote. It really makes a difference but it’s not the most attractive box in the bedroom. It’s been sitting on a faux walnut MDF stand that’s falling apart. I decided, and SWMBO agreed, that something better was needed. Completed top is gorgeous! I came up with a design for a real walnut (& ...

Then the entire outside, other than the plywood back, was given a coat of st...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #15: Plan B? Maybe...

Chapter should be titled “The Lid” Not much of anything went right….the plan to use a router to mill a tongue around all 4 edges of the panel? Looked good on paper…but only IF the panel is square to begin with…the 4 skirt boards? How. after squaring up the panel and needing the long skirt to fit the new size…and NOT cut them…do they turn out to be 1/2” too short? To the point I had to go back and make two new long skirt boards from scr...

Automated table saw fence and router table #4: Joinery app working (?)

08-12-2021 11:11 PM by DocWithManyHats | 0 comments »

I started this project a long time ago. I had some confidence I could design the hardware side of things, as I made my own cnc and had been using CAD and CAM on my own for some time. I did not know how to code though, and before I started too far down the hardware side of things, I wanted to be sure I could manage the software side. So, I started teaching myself to code and used this long term project as an inspiration. It is mostly written in Java and c++. I’ve since move...

One other item needing work…I have a WR #62…was getting DULL, area under the blade had filled up with &#...

Small Projects #52: Steampunk Unity Weather Station Done!

08-11-2021 11:53 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This started out as an offshoot of my humidor project. I buy in pairs and so I had a spare hygrometer. An idea of a weather station began to form. Unity Weather Station, on top of a table stereo, on top of an Edison Phonograph. Wax to Bluetooth in one century. I call it the “unity” box because of the variety of woods: White (maple) Black (wenge) Brown (walnut) Red (purpleheart) Yellow (yellowheart) I found a $12 LED module with time, indoor temp, outdoor temp...

Drawer #1 came out of the clamps, and didn’t fly apart…good start. Test fit into the case.. And..that was as far as it went in…we have ways.. Planed the high points down a bit…try again.. While I was at it..I added a screw to the back corners… Counter sunk, of course…last of the first stash of Ash was hauled to the shop…after which Old Murphy was fired..Drawer #5 needed two sides milled for length and width.. Done. Drawer #3…ne...
