  1. Limey Tom's Thein Top Hat

    I've finally got round to sorting out my dust collection setup. I moved my big chip collector up into the loft space to gain more room, but that then raised the question of what to do about emptying it. Replacing those dust sacks is a big enough pain in the arse as it is without also having to...
  2. Garage Doors

    Here's a few pics of a project I finished up last summer. A set of Solid 12/4 Western Red Cedar Garage doors. These were crated for a client who wanted something to make the front of his lodge stand out. Finish was rubbed on with a Walnut Danish Oil and several top coats of Man O' War Spar in...
  3. Table Saw Dust Ducting

    Well this was my second project over the summer. It took about 2 weeks to do, and i learned a lot. If i had to sell it, it would be like over $2000. When i was done there was 249 rivets, ya 249. So in the viewing window i added one extra rivet just to round it out to 250. It works with an old...
  4. Side board cabinet

    This cabinet could be used for just about anything.The lady who bought it is using it for desk and display area at her dance studio.
  5. School Daze Pen

    I have been inspired to try to work with some different mediums when it comes to pen turning. We one of them is/was colored pencils. So here is the end result! With some design ideas from my wife I came up with this pretty cool pen. I so have to say I have not seen one of these yet so I hope...
  6. front hallway coat rack

    My wife saw this idea on pintrest and she wanted one so I gave her one for Christmas. sorry for the sideways picture.
  7. Bowl - Unknown wood

    I am interested in your opinion as to what this wood might be.. It was suggested "aromatic cedar" but there really was no smell to the wood, certainly not a cedar smell. It was growing in the Tampa Bay area of Florida and had extensive ant damage in the center. You can see some on the lip. The...
  8. Tv Shelf and Fish tank Stand

    I built this fish tank stand and TV shelf to be used in my master bedroom. I built both using some reclaimed Oak wood and Oak plywood and stained it all with red mahogany and top coated with oil based poly. I weigh 250 and the shelf can support me so no worries of the TV ending up in the tank...
  9. Reclaimed Pine Dining Table

    I built this dining table based on the overall look of the Toscana table at Pottery Barn. My friend liked the X leg style and the overall informal and warm quality of the table. I obtained some beautiful salvaged heart pine that felt almost as heavy and dense as white oak. I used the best wood...
  10. Church shaped cell phone chair

    Okay I just realized I am becoming addicted to making these cell phone chairs. A co-worker saw the cell phone chair on my desk at work and asked if I would make her one. So that night (last night) I sat in my grandpa's old lazy boy with a few second hand carving tool, a compass and a block of...
  11. Mahogony tall case clock

    I made this clock while Studying fine woodworking while at college. I use Lonnie Bryd's article on how build a Pennsylvania tall clock out of Fine Woodworking. I did add in the dental molding at the top to add more depth. and I added in the lamb's tongue and chamfer.
  12. Laminated wood box, playing around

    Mostly I was playing around with stacking up different woods, seeing how they looked next to each other. When I was done playing I turned them into this simple box. Walnut, maple, bloodwood, and purpleheart. I planed the splines and a got a bit of tearout on the trailing edges. Finished with...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    When it comes time to buy a Dust Collector, one must think of what material to be used for ducting. Lots of pro's and con's for HVAC vs PVC. I wanted to share my opinion of why I went HVAC this past week: 1.) All of my HVAC pieces are 26 gauge, not the thinner flimsier 28 or 30 gauge you...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm looking for individual components to put together a DC system for use on one machine at a time that will be able to pull chips from my portable thickness planer. Since I do my woodworking on my driveway, the system needs to be able roll out there. It also needs to fit in a 24" x 36"...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    This is 1/2 NOT wood working related, yet 1/2 IS wood working related. Or maybe this belongs in the Home Refurb sister site. The experience you have acquired if you have dabbled with ducting and CFM and do's/dont's can help you more than your wood working shop. I WAS suppose to finish up my...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I recently bought a used 1hp dust collector and went to the local Lowe's looking for something to use as flexible ductwork. The only options I could see were 4" flex dryer duct and the 4" black "flex" line used for underground water drainage. I don't the the dryer duct would hold up to being...
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I just did a quick search, and couldn't find anything like this on the LumberJocks site. Anybody ever made … or … have any thoughts about making … heating/air conditioning floor vents ? Like …. OR I've wanted some (ours are the cheapest junk you could possibly buy … in an otherwise nice...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So I'm revamping my garage, and decided to use the opportunity and finally setup a permanent duct for DC. I have been trying to get a hold of 4" ASTM 2729 (thin walled) pipes for a LONG time, but nobody seems to be carrying this except for some (1-2) online retailers that with shipping, and...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My plan has been to permanently plumb my HF 2HP DC with 4" PVC. This way I won't have to drag the DC around my shop and will be able to put the DC in a place where it will generate the least amount of noise for my neighbors (attached houses). I finally read Bill Pentz' site, which I had...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I know this has been beaten to death, but not by me! I have a 1.5 hp Steel city DC rated at a nominal 1200 CFM, hooked to all my equipment with 4 in PVC. The runs to my tablesaw, planer and jointer are very short and straight (less than 8 ft,) all told. My question is this: would i benefit from...
