  1. On-Off Switch at chest level for a dust collector

    Here's a little workshop helper I've found very handy. This on-off assembly is mounted to my two stage Jet dust collector. Jet placed the original on/off switch on the motor assembly which is about 18" off ground level and behind the blower unit. Bending over, somethimes around other...
  2. Thien Baffle

    I recently built this Thien Baffle for my Delta dust collector. I mocked it up in Sketchup and then tweaked the design as I went. Had some scrap marine grade plywood that I used for the top and bottom, which is very smooth and works well. I used 1/8" thick acrylic around the sides of the...
  3. Building a Picket Fence on A Slope

    I work here in Georgia and most commonly when I build a fence, the land is very uneven. So everyone always wants to know how much more it's going to cost to have to build the fence on the slope. Because of the way I build my wood fence, it takes right at the same amount of work, so I tell them...
  4. Entertainment niche

    I built this for our new family room/guest suite. I converted the attached two stall garage into a family room bedroom and bathroom. The unit is oak with birch drawers.
  5. 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...
  6. Dust collector

    Thien dust collector This thing works great! The goal was to have it function well but also look like it belongs on top of the trash can. I mainly mill foams like eps and urethanes with my cnc. With that material being so light I was a little worried about a lot of it going directly into the...
  7. 1st Wine Bottle Balancer

    I had a piece of walnut from an attempt at a box that was already cut at 45 on both ends. I have been wanting to give this a shot, so here it is. Took a me a few test cuts to get the balance, but as you can see, it works! Used the router table to round over the edges, got a little carried away...
  8. Thien baffle

    After reading lumberjocks for some years now, today I decided to post my last project. I'm setting up my new tiny workshop and the Bosch vacuum I have, gets filled in quite quickly. I have took the design from Phil Thien's website. The design was from retired2. I finally completed the project...
  9. New take on the HF Dust Collector w/Wynn Filter

    I've been using the HF dust collector for a few years now and made some recent improvement adding a stage 1 separator (see my previous project) and a Wynn filter. But there are still TWO things about the set-up that bothered me. One is the turbulence in the lower bag of the DC that keeps stuff...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. Kauri dish

    This was turned from a pair of salvaged wooden wash tubs from an early settlers cottage built in the 1880's. there is a noticable yellow stain topart of the piece probably due to washing soaps used at the time. The timber is NZ Kauri (Agathis australis), this was a prized timber in NZ with...
  13. Christmas Presents 1 - Cutting Boards

    I made these cutting boards as Christmas gifts for my Mom and Mother-in-law. My wife has been asking me to make her a smaller "cheese board" for a while now, so I got her to draw me up a full size template of what she had in mind, and I took it from there. I really liked her design, so I made a...
  14. Upgrade to dust collector

    My dad gave me a small dust collector from harbor freight for Christmas. It was great for re-sawing but the shavings from planing and joining always clogged it up. So I got the cyclone lid from Woodcraft, and a steel trash can from Home Depot and then built a mobile cart around it. It is nice...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Iron Table for Sewing Room

    My wife saw a similar item at a craft show that was an inexpensive cubby with a piece of plywood on top that was covered with ironing board material. I knew I could make it and spend at least twice as much… The finished project had a top which could be used for ironing in her sewing room and...
  18. Outside Dust Collector Shed

    Recently built an outside shed for the dust collector. In addition to opening up some valuable shop space, it's a lot quieter and cleaner. The overhead sch 40 PVC duct was previously installed in the shop, and it was only necessary to turn around some tees to reverse the direction of flow. There...
  19. Thien Dust Separator

    This is my Thien Dust Separator on a cart made from 3/4" plywood base, a 32 gallon metal garbage can recessed into the base, and my Ridgid shop vac also recessed into the base. I now get virtually no dust in the shop vac filter, and all the shavings stay in the can.
  20. Benchtop Downdraft Sanding Table

    I put together this downdraft benchtop sanding table from some scraps I had laying around the shop from other projects. I started with a small pieces of ½" MDF, ½" ply, 1/8" pegboard and a leftover 45 degree PVC elbow. The size was somewhat determined by the scrap pieces, but the long MDF...
