  1. Journal Mini Split Air Filter

    I installed a MR Cool DIY 1.5 ton (18000k BTU) mini split in my shop last summer to replace the failing portable AC unit I have been using for the last 8+ years just in time for a month of over 100°F temperatures here in DFW. It performed flawlessly. I could bring the temperature down from...
  2. Lathe Motor Conversion to Variable Speed DC.

    I recemtly turned a bunch of bowls on my lathe and I was having a lot of vibration problems. My lathe has only 5 speeds. To change speeds, I have to turn the lathe off, set my tool down, wait for it to stop spinning, open up the door, change belt, close door… (In other words it takes a while.)...
  3. A&C Baby Changer Table

    Two friends of mine, Marco and Elena Trivelato, recently had a lovely baby. I wanted to make them something to mark the occasion such as a small table (my speciality) but the Dad (Papà) mentioned that they hadn't been able to find a Baby Changer that they liked. At this point I hadn't a clue...
  4. Mission End Tables in Figured Walnut

    I was finally able to finish up my end tables that I've been working on on and off since the beginning of March. Unfortunately, projects for other people (paying and gifts) got in the way, and it's taken me about 7 1/2 months to finish these. The design is from Woodsmith #127. Traditionally...
  5. another batch of A&C styled lamps

    Greetings! This is what I've been spending weekends over the summer working on. They are very similar to the previous lamps I built with a few exceptions so I won't deep dive into the details as much (see the previous project post for more gritty detail) I've changed a few of my jig designs...
  6. Air Conditioner in a box

    A diversion during the remodeling of our house. I've outfitted our air conditioner with cabinet doors. I've had to install and remove the AC from the window each year. It's a job and I wanted to find a solution that would let me leave it in short of mounting it in the wall. I started out by...
  7. Crib

    Here is my version of a popular crib from Wood Magazine. Made from Quatersawn Cherry - no plywood in this one. Finished with 2 coats of watco danish oil, 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal, and 2 applications of finishing paste wax. All that's needed is a sleepy head to fill it ( my wife is due in August...
  8. Kinda Woodworking: Window Frame for A/C installation

    I took on the task of installing a window unit air conditioner in a casement window at my church. The electrical outlet was previously run, so now the unit could go in. Because it was a casement window, I didn't want to just put in a big old plywood panel and block off the view of the outside...
  9. Focus on the Workspace
    Like the title says, I am interested in installing a 100% positive flow AC in the shop. What I mean is NO RETURN AIR TO THE AC UNIT. For all the detractors, I understand that THAT is not efficient or cost effective, so please bite the bullet on that portion. What I am trying to find is a unit...

  11. Focus on the Workspace
    Starting off my Lumberjocks profile with a stupid question…here goes…. I recently moved to the south east. Will the natural humidity in my shop and/or the conditions below be a problem for my equipment (ie. jointer, bandsaw, tablesaw, drill press, planer etc)? I am concerned about rust in...

    Update 27Oct21: Installer was here 0800. Job finished up around noon. 15,000 btu (1-1/2 ton?) Almost silent. Right over my bench. Ahhhhhhhh … Life is good! $3500 vs $4200 on original bid. ------------------‐ Update 25Oct21: Just got the "greenlight" on the mini split AC install. Shouldn't...
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am building a project for a guy who asked that I dowel the miter joints as he likes the look of dowels. Project is a fairly large box of Jatoba and he requested oak dowels. Sounds OK to me but I don't know that I've ever seen it done. Anyone done this? All comments/ sugestions welcome. Holes...

    Finally, new shop, from the ground up. After corners of a basement, parts of a garage and a shared space, I finally have the opportunity to build a new shop from the ground up. This series will attempt to document the process and maybe provide others with some ideas. I am always on the...

    Vape pen stand As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady...

    It's hot here in the Chicago area (and extremely humid) and I've been unable to get out into the garage to do much as a result. A friend just sent me a message that he has one of these and offered it to me free of charge...
