  1. Dust Collector Clamp Rack Cart

    I have a two car garage that I must share with one of our vehicles, so everything is on wheels to make moving things easier. This dust collector is no different, with locking caster, as well. I have very little space for more tools until I move so everything must make the best use of the square...
  2. 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...
  3. 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.)...
  4. 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...
  5. Contractor's 10" Table Saw DC Solution

    I recently upgraded my dust collection system and I am now going back and retrofitting all my power tools to accommodate the larger 4" dust ports. The router table was the first tool to go under the knife. I also did the radial arm saw. My Delta Professional (36-650) contractor's table saw has...
  6. Burl Framed Morror

    The frame is made out of Walnut burl and Salted maple burl. This was a good challenge for me. It is 4' at the longest measurement. One of the challenges was when I soaked the finish on the spalted maple it swelled up so the mirror did not fit. so I had to grind a little to make it fit. I use...
  7. Super Dust Deputy and HF Dust Collector Upgrade

    So there have been quite a few dust collector projects posted on here, but wanted to do a quick share of mine since I was so pleased with how it turned out. I started with the traditional dust collector from Harbor Freight that I got a little over a year ago. I was tired of still having the dust...
  8. DIY Router Fence with Above/Below Dust Collection and Micro-Adjustable Fence

    I have been using this fence system for a while and still have not seen another one like it, so I thought I would share it with everyone. The fence mounts to a box that slides within a bigger box. This inner box is spring loaded to the retract position. Wedges/ramps then adjust with a knob in...
  9. Dust Pans from Empty Cans •

    July 7, 2012 Many years ago I made this dust pan from a 5 gallon metal can.You might find one this size at a restaurant near you. These are easy to make. You just get a tin snip and cut away what you don't want. Then you add a long wooden handle. But for today, here's another idea for another...
  10. 2HP Dust Collector Modification

    Like many others on Lumber Jocks, I also own a powerful HFT 2hp #97869 dust collector. Unfortunately, two of the collector support tubes on my system broke the other day so I took this as an opportunity to fix everything I didn't like about this dust collector. Here are the items requiring...
  11. Wonder-ful wood burned plaque

    This plaque that I made has a very special meaning to my fiancé and I. I made it for our pet cat named Wonder when he passed away almost 2 years ago. He was very special to us. To my fiancé he was even more special she rescued him when he was only a few weeks old when he was sick and no one else...
  12. Radial Arm Saw Dust Collection Solution

    This is a 1968 Sears Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. My father bought it new that year and converted the two car garage into an office and wood work shop with it. He had no table saw at the time. I can post more photos for those who are interested in the difference between years. Sometimes older is...
  13. 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...
  14. 2 Stage HF Dust Collector

    I had been planning on putting in a dust collection unit for the last several years and slowly planning it. I bought the Harbor Freight 2 HP dust collector a few months back and tried out the motor to make sure it worked then put it back in the box while I planned the rest of the system. I...
  15. Cherry Mallet

    Just a chunk of Cherry I couldn't find another use for. Lost of worm holes so I baked it a 180 degrees for a couple of hours to insure that they were extinct before I wasted effort on it.
  16. Greene and Greene train table

    Here is a Greene and Greene inspired train table. The table is made of cherry with walnut plugs and matches the bedroom set that I previously posted. The table aprons are not glued and the legs are srewed from the inside with furniture bolts and threaded inserts so the table can be taken...
  17. pencil boxes

    Boxes are a great way to learn new techniques. I had never made box joints before so here goes! To keep them different I left the fingers of the joints sticking out on one of the boxes and put a different curve on the end of the lids. The stop pin is 1/8 copper from the welding section at Lowes...

    This is a book shelf the a customer wanted to match a BunkBed i made for there kids room.
