Make a Dewalt 733 planer dust hood for less then 5 bucks

Make a Dewalt 733 planer dust hood for less then 5 bucks This is my first blog so I hope I get it right. I bought a used 733 a few months ago that did not come with a dust collection hood. After getting it home I had to try it out, ran a pine board through it and blew chips and dust 5 foot . Well being frugal as I am, no make that cheap I decided to try and make something to get me by until I could find a factory hood. This is what I came up with, I have been using it for a few month...

No Quarter #1: Shell box - Intro and pattern

07-22-2011 08:44 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hello here this is my second attempt to blog shell boxes. The last one ended up in the wall art ‘Inverted World’. Well this one is a little less spectacular but is based along the same theme of curves. This time a curved pattern but it will have stringing introduced between the colour changes as will become apparent as the blog progresses. The main woods are American Black Walnut and Sycamore with Yew stringing. I will be book-matching woods where necessary. First step i...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #8: Cutting the Corner 45 Degree Angles

03-11-2013 04:58 AM by Boxguy | 22 comments »

A Quick, Accurate Way To 45 Your Corners If you build boxes at all, eventually you tire of cranking your blade from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and back…I did. So I built this simple jig, and now I can cut all 8 ends of a box accurately in about 5 minutes, AND STILL LEAVE MY TABLE SAW SET AT 90 DEGREES. Assumption: I am assuming that you have already laid out the board for your sides and have cut all four sides of your box to length. Short side, long side, short side, long side...

Tips for Building a Freestyle End Grain Cutting Board

11-12-2013 05:04 PM by JL7 | 23 comments »

Lately I’ve been building some end grain boards that don’t follow the “traditional” convention of the repeating pattern from one end to the other. Examples: I call them Freestyle boards. I put together a video that shows some cutting and gluing tips: I really don’t have a lot of detail photos of some of the more complex blocks but I will share what I have so far: These are some of the shapes: The diamond shapes were inspire...

dust stuff #13: Fall Art Show

10-31-2012 01:34 PM by JoeyG | 9 comments »

I thought I would share the picture of my table at the small art show I was in last weekend. While this show seemed a bit slower than the one in the spring, but I still did rather well. I had hoped to sell a few more boxes, but I try to go in prepared to take everything home. I believe the biggest thing, is that I am above the price range of the people who visit the show. I think for the spring show next year, I will try to make more smaller boxes. I have yet to sell my higher end ...

Simple Band Saw Fence

11-01-2012 03:37 AM by arco21 | 15 comments »

I decided it was high time I quit clamping a piece of wood to my bandsaw table whenever I needed a fence, and upgraded to something more easily adjustable. Based on a design for a drill press fence in a recent Woodsmith Small Shops book, I came up with this cleat style fence. I used 2×4’s for the front and back rails, putting the 45 degree angle on them with my table saw. I bolted them to the existing threads on my bandsaw’s fence. The fence is a piece of cherry, and t...
