  1. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey there, I've got a decent sized shop, with most of the 'basics' - 10" table saw, 14" band saw, 13" planer (DW735), 8" jointer (benchtop), 12" CMS, drill press, oscillating spindle sander, router table (in TS wing), and a 1.5 hp Delta 50-760 dust collector with a 4" SDD and Wynn cannister...
  2. Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

    Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel...
  3. A First Time for Everything! Tablesaw Jig! turns both inside and out of wood bowl!

    I don't think I've had this much fun with a Jig in a long time.. Check out the attached video to watch this really cool little jig in action! Using the jig i am able to use my table saw to create the traditional parabolic curved shape on the outside of a wood bowl. Fun project with great results!!!
  4. This table really sucks...downdraft sucking that is!

    Wanting to build a downdraft/outfeed table for a while now since I do a lot of sanding/shaping/carving with my intarsia, I searched LJ and the internet for ideas. I was happy with a style that I found through Clint Wenthur, the link to his project blog is here...
  5. Yacht Ladder

    I built this yacht ladder a couple months back for a customer in Seattle. It is made of phillippine mahogany. Stained with antique cherry water base from Rockler, very nice high pigment stuff. I finished it with a sprayed laquer. It was 10 6" long and 22" wide to fit the space. I was given a...

  7. Table Saw Dust Collector

    As I've posted before, I tend to take equipment, and materials work the best they can for my needs. I have gone to a whole new level now with permanent, "fixed"(I hope), dust collection. I have a "screamer" table saw that I built a massive rolling workbench for, with miter slots, and storage. I...
  8. Poor Mans Air Circulation System

    Ok stop laughing….ha-ha. I found this in one of my SHopNoyes mags and knew right away it wa for me. It is simple, inexpensive.. not sure how well it works. I needed something but can't afford one with a blower fan etc like I see in workshop and mags. It is better than nothing and maybe it will...
  9. Keepsake Box

    I made this keep sake box for a mothers day present, it is made out of poplar.
  10. Drill Press Table

    Finally completed my version of a drill press table. All of the mat'l came from scraps I had laying around the shop, including the Incra fence that was just gathering dust. For dust collection, I built a small box in the table base, and added a 4" blast gate on the back. I'll see how it...
  11. Another Radial Arm Dust Collecter

    I know there are a 'few' radial arm dust collection solutions out here, but thought I would throw mine in mix. This is a copy of some others that have been posted with a few changes. I added some threaded inserts into the table so it could be securely fastened to the table, but also allow for...
  12. Saddle for 4" dust collection hose

    Here's a simple easy to make birch ply saddle to hold a standard 4" diameter dust collection hose. I replaced the two M6 screws on the dust collector flang with longer ones. I got tired of tripping over it, stepping on it and bending over to pick it off the floor. I move the hose from machine...
  13. Marking Tools

    This was my gift for the Summer 2016 swap. A marking knife from O1 steel, heat-treated in the shop. I also made the brass ferrule. Handle is African Blackwood, and shaped very thin. The Black Walnut pencil holder was very simple, but I hope it can be used anywhere; shop or office or kitchen...
  14. Dove Tail Tool Set for the 2017 Summer Swap

    To start with let me say that I have never cut a dove tail in my life. I love the look of them, but they are too much like work to make. I joined the 2017 LJ summer tool swap, for my first swap attempt and hope I didn't disappoint the poor guy that got my tools, ki7hy, Dave. I built a set of...
  15. Dog house out of pallets

    Catching up with older projects. The roof is hinged for easy cleaning. It is big enough I can sit in it when I have done something wrong. This sucker is heavy it took three of us to carry it to position.
  16. Box for Fiances Mom

    This is the first box I have made. It is for my fiances mom. Made of Cherry and spaulted maple. It is roughly 11" x7" x4" tall. It turned out pretty good.. Learned quite a bit and will make a few changes for the next one. Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Sorry the pics are...
  17. Harbor Freight Dust Collector + Super Dust Deputy

    I finally was able to upgrade to a real dust collector! My shop vac has been a workhorse, but the additions of a jointer, planer and bandsaw have pushed it to the limit. It was well past time for a bigger sucker! I ordered a Super Dust Deputy, 10 feet of 4" flex hose, and the Long Ranger...
  18. Simple Mission Hope Chest

    I made this for a friend's wedding in '06. The chest is oak and oak plywood; the drawer fronts are false, just decorative. This was my first large scale project and I used it to work on my measurement and fitting skills. The carcass and top are put together with biscuit joinery. The finish is...
  19. Dust bunny eliminator

    3/4 hp. Air handler from a local A/C company: Free. You just have to ask sometimes, which I did. Only took one stop and bam had a free squirrel cage with working 110 motor. 1/2 ply all around, 20×20 household filters, one 700. the other 1200, whatever that means other than one being more...
  20. Koa Kerfmaker

    I was again challenged to try to make one of these neat little kerfmakers. I had looked at the video for Bridge City Tools and still cannot figure out how it is used with the second gapped area so I made one of my own design that is easily understood. It was just bit more tricky to fit...
