  2. Workshop Floor Sweep Attachment

    Workshop Floor Sweep Attachment How much are you willing to pay for 1 meter of plastic tube with a handle and a nozzle, $40 - $50? Well I was not willing to spend that much for a floor gulper, so I gave it try to make one. I had a piece of left over tube, added 45 angle elbow, a piece of ¼...
  3. Shop Air Cleaner

    I acquired an older furnace blower saw it as a perfect opportunity to make my shop a little cleaner. The unit itself is pretty large at 33"x22"x19" tall. I have two 16"x20" filters on each side and the air blows out the top. I splurged and installed a one hour timer on it. It's mostly made out...
  4. Red Oak Desk

    I have been reading and enjoying this websites community long before I finally created an account.

  6. Loft bed

    This is a loft bed that I built for one of my 3 kids. Guess what? Now I have two more to build ;). That's OK. It was a fun project. Went with stairs rather than a ladder because my kids inherited their clumsiness from their mother (he he…). For the desktop, I used an epoxy resin and am...

  9. Ipe Dish

    Practice in turning thin wood, made from recycled ipe (used to be a planter box). Basically made a glue block with my hole saw which allowed me to turn a recess on the bottom. Ipe is hard stuff but takes a crisp edge. Finished with a linseed/paste wax mixture. Complete series of pics at the...

  12. Homemade Air Cleaner

    Here is my homemade air cleaner that I built for my shop. I used 3 High Volume Comair Rotron fans rated at 340cfm each. I have them wired to a 60 min dial style timer which is then fed into a 2 switch unit that allows me to turn 1, 2 or all 3 fans on. I have no idea how to tell how many times...
  13. Koa & Bamboo Side Table

    This is a table I just finished. I came home and there was a piece of Koa leaning against my front door and I knew right away it had to be a table. How could I cut such a nice piece of wood, I admit it i'm a wood hoarder. I used some bamboo ply that I had in the shop for the base. Not much to...

    I call it the Widow Bench. I used a left over piece of Sycamore from a bar top I had built earlier. The legs are made from a dyed maple, first they were dyed red then distressed and then stained grey and finished with clear poly spray on.

The cart is on wheels so that I can use it elsewhere in the shop for side support during cutting long boards on my table...

  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello, How important is a Dust Collector (DC) clean out box (or bag) below a two stage DC? This is the box, bucket, or bag below a filter, that collects the fine particles, not collected in a cyclone or separator. I notice some DC's don't have them. I ask because I'm finishing building a...
  18. Finishing
    I'm looking for a product to help measure accurate proportions of finish to thinner. This product should be quick to use and clean. I generally mix 1/2 a pint at a time, 50/50 of OMS and Poly. Right now I use a turkey baster and a calibrated eye. Thanks in advance.
