  1. I made Jay Bates' air filter cart.

    I've been wanting to build a air filter for my shop for quite some time now. Recently I found a working furnace fan and motor at a junk shop for $20. I looked around online for ideas and I liked Jay Bates' design. I liked his cart idea so you could wheel it to a tool. I had all the wood I needed...
  2. Breathe in...Breathe out

    Why pay $300+ for something you can build yourself. I built this air cleaner for around $60. I already had the lumber and got the blower for free. The filters are 20×25, so that'd what size the box is also. If you plan to build one of these make sure to get the filters first and then build...
  3. Eucalyptus Burl Bowl

    I saw a big block of Eucalyptus Burl at Rockler a few weeks ago, and I picked it up for a nice $8. Well, after a few hours on the lathe, this is what I have… It is the deepest vessel I have made yet. It also makes me want more tools LOL. I did this entire bowl with a spindle gouge and a...

  5. Air filter

    The majority of the unit is built out of 3/4 birch plywood with poplar "trim" and doors. The fan is plugged into a switched outlet on the interior of the unit. The decora switch is located on the bottom center, within easy reach with a push stick. I put felt insulation around each of the...
  6. Ipad chair

    Made of maple with walnut inlays and silver solder inlays. Fun filler project.
  7. Shop Built Air Filter

    I scored a free 4 speed furnace blower the other day and decided to build a much needed Shop Air Filter system. I found some plans at http://www.woodworkingseminars.com/wp-content/ShopAirFilter.pdf All it cost me was $30 for the 3/4 Birch plywood and a few hours of my time. Note: Thanks to LJ...
  8. Air Cleaner

    I bought a squirrel cage blower for $30 and watched a youtube video on how to make this contraption. Here is the final project. The box is made of MDF and plywood. I bought a timer that goes up 8 hours and shuts off (1,2,4,8 hr increments) from Amazon. The wiring wasn't quite pretty but it...
  9. Mobile Air Cleaner done dirt cheap!

    I have been meaning to acquire or make one of these for a long time… I recently upgraded my furnace in the house, so I kept the fan for just this purpose. There is nothing at all glamorous about this, but it works great (quiet too) and doesn't take up any more room in the shop. When I started...
  10. Shop Made Air Filtration System

    When the old air-condition unit went out, I knew a Shop Made Air Filtration System was in my future. After determining that the squirrel cage blower still worked I settled on a cart design base off Jay Bates Air Cleaner Cart. The main criteria for this build was to make it the same height as my...
  11. Beware the dreaded .... ChupaCaja

    The Latin American Suck Box. ===================== Allegedly, it's taken the lives of dozens of innocents. In this case it's being accused of things that are FAR less loathsome and macabre. It's a roll-about air cleaner. Okay, so …. CraigsList had an ad for a explosion-proof fan [see SPECS...
  12. Air filter

    Just got the shop air filter done. There are three 2 inch thick MERV 11 filters and one 1 inch thick MERV 4 filter. Air is drawn through the MERV 4 filter which is in the 1st photo, then through the three MERV 11 filters in the 2nd and 3rd photos and is then blown down osb ducts to the ends of...
  13. Dutchy's 1932 Buick Sedan UPDATE!!!

    . . . . . . . . . Well Gents, I'm finally done with my project. This was a really fun build. I will be making more projects with spoke wheels in the near future. Thanks for watching!!!
  14. Shop Air Filter

    As I have slowly matured and gotten older, I have been starting to become more aware of setting up woodworking as a hobby that will keep me busy post-career. One of the things that I think about is the quality of air in my shop. When you work with wood occasionally, I don't think you notice as...
  15. Air Filter/Outfeed Table/Sanding Station

    Shop Air Filter/Sanding Station/Outfeed Table with adjustable height rollers. It has a 4 speed HVAC squirrel cage blower, with a 1" reusable filter in front of a 4" Merv 12 pleated filter. The rollers are adjustable so that it can be used as an out-feed table for my table saw, band saw, or...
  16. Shopnotes Airfiltration box

    I was browsing through the projects here and I came across a couple of other home-built air filter units. I made this one based on a plan from ShopNotes (at least I think it was ShopNotes, I can't find it now). The idea is to use three filters, two pre-filter and one post-filter. As the first...
  17. Flower Marquetry Box

    Made this box for a dear friend of ours who many years ago lost her woodworking husband. She had an old box of veneers that she gave me and I placed a few of these into the marquetry flower. The box is made of cherry with koa miter splines, and the flower marquetry includes burl walnut...
  18. Bird house from a tree in the back yard

    As I have posted before, the Texas Red Oak in our back yard is dead. I will have it cut down soon but in the mean time I have been taking branches out of it and creating wood projects. I had made the bird house part of this for Amy, our daughter. I did not have time to complete it to this detail...
  19. Mobile Downdraft Sanding Table / Assembly Table

    Last winter I built a cedar strip canoe and decided to build a shop air filtration system. A buddy gave me a used furnace blower large enough to build a downdraft table/assembly table. The filters can be serviced externally. I use 2 16×20 3m filtrete filters with 2 "cheap" prefilters. I used...
  20. Air Filter w/first dovetails

    Woodgears version of a shop air filter http://woodgears.ca/dust/air_cleaner.html made form an extra fan. Except the motor frame is not hung by inner tubes. I just screwed my frame in. I hung it over the workbench/tablesaw area, because most of my time working on small projects are spent there...
