  1. Journal DC System, Start of Install

    Finished up with the hanging brackets, added a piece of 3/4" stock with a dado to hold the plywood ring, using glue and staples. I also made up a few to attach directly to the floor joist of the loft, running across the shop. Started out with drilling a 4-1/4" hole in the loft floor to bring a...
  2. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have been reading as many posts as I can to figure out a dust solution for my shop. I should say that I do not plan on buying a dust collection system, I will be using a shopvac with a dust cyclone setup. I am also considering getting a wall mount shop vac, but I digress. My question is can I...
  3. Pre Dust Collector Dust Collector

    My Brain said that I needed this. Actually it will help a lot with carting sawdust up the stairs. Emptying that plastic bag was always really messy, and I would allow it to get way too full. Now I parked a 20 gal trash can in the empty space of my Delta DC, and its job is to gather most all...
  4. mini-cyclone shopvac modification

    This is a project I built a while ago but didn't post here. After getting tired of cleaning the filter on my shop-vac and also to see how easy it would be to build a full size big one, I decided to add a cyclone to my shop-vac (using Bill Pentz plans). Installed it on my Ridgid vaccume. This...
  5. Thein Top Hat Dust Separator

    I made this Thein separator out of metal flashing, MDF, and scrap hard maple. I copied mine almost exactly from this video series: It was really well done and ghostses was very helpful and responsive to questions. The main differences in mine are the finishing details (I haven't routed any...
  6. My Fancy Home Made Dust Cyclone

    It is made with a cone sold for sports usage. The dimensions are were not calculated or copied. Simply built as a test project that provides amazing results. Connection of tubing to the cone is tricky and most glue types didn't work. Actually it is still not glued as expected but it will soon be...
  7. My cyclone vac

    After looking at many post on LJ and numerous you tube videos I just had to try this. Much to my surprise it worked very well on the initial trial. Next is to put a new filter in the shop vac and to seal all the little leaks. The funnel part is app. 20" tall, 9" top and 4 1/2" at the bottom and...
  8. Dust Deputy Cart

    I was inspired by postings I saw on Lumber Jocks to build my own Dust Deputy Cart. This works flawlessly. I use it for dust control on my table saw, jointer, shaper, and for vacuuming in my shop. This is very similar to others described on this site. If you recognize your design, I thank you...
  9. Mini Cyclone Dust Collection Bucket

    Mini Cyclone Dust Collection Bucket Few friends message me and asked me if I can post this project also here in LJs than where I have it, because is easier for them to look at the project, so here it is. My cyclone dust collector bucket is very inexpensive and efficient. It only cost me under...
  10. Red Oak Desk

    I have been reading and enjoying this websites community long before I finally created an account. Since creating one nothing has really came to mind on what to post about so figured I'd start with a desk I made not long ago. A customer was looking for a large desk to put in the office room of...
  11. Clear Vue -- Thein Top Hat Dust Collector

    Thein Top Hat Separator gets married to a 16" Clear Vue impeller & blower housing with a 5hp Leeson motor. The result is a DC that outperforms the "short" cyclones from the major manufacturers for a fraction of the cost. In addition, when I get my dream shop one of these days with tall...
  12. Cyclone Vacuum Cart

    I built this mobile cart for my shop vac and Dust Deputy cyclone. Made from 3/4" ply. Used dadoes/glue/screws for the joinery. The cyclone is mounted atop a piece of ply on a piano hinge to fold up out of the way and give access to the dust bucket. A small clasp holds it down. Just behind...
  13. My new Dust Collector Separator and Cart

    I hate dust. My shop is also my garage and dust gets on everything. I started out using a shop vac but it was really noisy and not that effective so I gave up on that. A 2hp dust collector seemed too expensive for me as a hobby woodworker on a budget and it would also take up valuable floor...
  14. Outfeed Table

    This outfeed table was designed and built to complement my new tablesaw. It is constructed of 3/4" maple and BC exterior plywood, and assembled primarily with pocket screws and glue. This was my first pocket screw project, and I must say that in certain situations they are definitely...
  15. Sound baffle cyclone air return

    I'm happy to have thought long enough about sound and noise when converting a small garage into a shop. I built a small lean to 14' X 9'-ish to hold my air compressor and cyclone dust collector. I got everything installed and it's working great except I still need to build a return. Not a big...
  16. Thien Type Pre-separator

    Like many others, I found myself constantly cleaning my dust collector because the cartridge was plugged with sawdust and chips. I purchased a cyclone separator lid (photo 2) at a woodworking show and placed it on a 30 gallon metal trash can. While it did reduce the amount of debris getting to...
  17. media center with bookshelves

    Had some extra time around the shop, so we decided to build this. Its made out of poplar and mdf and finished it with some dunn edwards paint. The top is walnut and finished with polyurethane. Not really my style of cabinet but I think someone will like it. Thanks for looking!!!
  18. SMSgt Stripe Shadowbox

    Here is the latest version of my stripe shadowbox. This is made from black walnut with soft maple stripes. I was fortunate enough to find a piece of maple that was 11" wide. In order to make th stripes, I had to resaw the 4/4 stock. But my bandsaw could not handle stock that wide so i had to...
  19. Mini Cyclone Vac Cart

    Hi Jocks!! Been awhile since my last posting trying not to let the heat overcome my hobby :) This is a Shop Notes Project but it's also found in one of the recent Tips and Tricks Books. I decided not to add the glamore of paint since it's just for my shop. This project only took me a few hours...
  20. Simple dresser

    Sort of loosely inspired by campaign furniture. Carcase, web frames, and drawer fronts are 3/4 birch ply from Home Depot edged with 1/4 inch oak strips. Varathane oil based American Walnut stain, finished with oil based satin Varathane poly. The finish job isn't the greatest, particularly on...
