  1. 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...
  2. Sophi's American Girl Doll Bed

    This my second project in my shop. My first was a Pinewood Derby car. I completed it about a year ago. It is a bed for my daughter or more specifically for her American Girl doll. The only design criteria demanded by her was that it had to wide enough so that the doll could have a sleep over...
  3. 'Zombie' Slayer Daggers

    The last ditch weapon if the 'Zombie Apocalypse' ever happens! Mostly just art pieces just because! The handles are left to right in first shot: Oak, Mahogany, Beech, and Mahogany. I must confess, I did not twist the steel, I came by it already twisted and the first thought was 'dagger'. Guess...
  4. Dust Collection for the Miter Station

    A few months back, I built a simple modular 2×4 miter saw station. I finally got around to adding much needed dust collection. First, I made a dust hood with sliding adjustable doors which makes it easy to open up for mitered cuts, and second, I added a dust cyclone to my shop vac on an...

  6. Frankenduster lives!

    Excuse me, that's Frahnkindooster! ;-) Ok, here's Frankenduster, the illegitimate stepchild of Lumberjock memLance's much more successfully designed "Converted HF DC" from a couple of months ago. His project can be found at: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/58457 The reason I made...
  7. Dust Shround for Chop Saw

    My take on taming the dusty sawdust blaster chop saw, with a few ideas that maybe helpful. I use this saw allot and always made a dusty mess. Ideas formulated as I set about solving the problem. First extend the piping to the far end of the shop.The box is fairly basic. it just cantilevers off...
  8. Wood Cyclone

    Just wanted to build a cyclone. There's just something about gluing up all those wood strips that I find fascinating. After building my doll house roofs with all those strips just had to try my hand at a cyclone. Here's the project page.
  9. Downdraft Sanding Table Box

    I had some scrap MDF, ply and peg board laying around, so I figured I'd throw together a downdraft sanding table. It is an extremely basic build and I just used brad nails and glue for all the joints. The size is fully configurable to meet your needs, I'm actually going to go back and make a...
  10. Sanding Table

    In an effort to help control sanding dust in my shop, I decided to build a dedicated sanding table. This one has an additional benefit of being an air filtration system, with an old furnace filter I salvaged installed inside. You can leave it on while working elsewhere in the shop, and it will...
  11. A Few More Pens

    My other pens were received so well I decided to share a few more pens I made. Going from left to right, the desert camouflage and pink & blue acetate pens are for my nephew, who is in the Army, and his wife, respectively. I still have to mail those out to him. The third made from some curly...
  12. Cyclone and Gate Redo

    My cyclone is about 4 years old and my filter was very plugged up from to much mdf and melimine. I contacted the great folks at Wynn filter and got some great advice. and excellent customer service. I checked around, then placed an order for 2 Nano Fiber filters, about 700 square in. area. It is...
  13. Canoe

    This was my very first whittling project. It is made from a piece of 2×2 utility grade pine. The finish is your basic elementary school watercolor and clear lacquer. Enjoy.
  14. Dust Cyclone Monster

    Remember Dr. Frankenstein when he had the mad look on his face and screamed, it's alive! Well, when I hit the switch and started sucking up dust I'm sure I had the same look on my face and was screaming it works! I found that Electrolux vac. in a flea market and it was marked 3 bucks. I...
  15. Assembly/Outfeed Table (in process)

    Here is the first stage of my assembly/outfeed table based on The Wood Whisperer's very same, with the exception of mine being on casters. My project is very similar to Dakotawood's (that is amazing and I highly recommend you checking it out on here). Mine is made out of 3/4" baltic birch...
  16. Table Saw Dust Containment

    Here is my latest example of my "Dormroom Industrial" style. The inspiration for this came from FWW #??? article about dust proofing any saw. I have been working with a shopvac for years and finally got a dust collector on Craigslist last month so I finally had my justification for this...
  17. My air cleaner/outfeed table. Almost done.

    As you can see by pictures of my shop, I was in serious need of dust abatement strategies. Being a student, I was not going to shell out big money for an air cleaner - so I made my own. I also needed an outfeed table, so I decided to kill two birds with on stone. Unfortunately, I have not...
  18. Dust & Chip Pre-Separator

    This has GOT to be one of the most useful additions to my shop ever! Found the plans on WoodCraft's website ( http://www.woodcraft.com/Articles/Articles.aspx?articleid=408 ) for this easy-to-build dust pre-separator and it screamed out "BUILD ME"! One of the reasons it screamed so loudly is...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    As the title says I am planning on buying a G0738 air filter while it is on sale ($40 off) and I have a coupon for free shipping. The long term plan is to use two units to create a circular air flow and to assist the HVAC air handler move the air all the way down my 39 foot shop and then pull...
  20. Focus on the Workspace
    Hello fellow Lumberjocks… I was recently given a dust collector similar to this one http://www.busybeetools.com/products/dust-collector-1hp-570cfm-1-mic-bag-csa.html I think it will meet my needs, but I'd like to vent it outside instead of through the upper bag. Has anyone done this...
