  1. Air filtration fan

    Nothing glamorous here. Some leftover wafer board and an old box fan that the wife won't notice missing until next summer rolls around.
  2. Shop/Football filter

    I've seen posts about people using box fans with a filter to help clean air in spaces/workshops all the time. Here is my version and was somewhat based off one woodshaver posted. I will see how it works. I'm not a analyst so I don't know what CFM or whatever it might do. I can tell you that if...
  3. A truck from Santa's workshop

    Yet another use for the scraps and offcuts that otherwise lie underfoot. It was difficult to follow the rocking motorcycle but little grandson Sam didn't complain. The pattern for this one came free from a website.
  4. Race Fan Cane: NASCAR Inspired Walking Cane, Driver Jimmie Johnson #48 Carved Stick & Knob

    ------------------------------------------- Sorry about the photos being a little fuzzy, I just was cutting it too close to the deadline and rushed the photo set up. This walking cane was commissioned and resides in Wichita, Kansas USA ------------------------------------------ Welcome Web...
  5. Jatoba with a bloodwood heart

    The spousal unit and I were cruising the lumber store, looking at wood-porn and just having a nice time. The budget was very tight, so we didn't expect to take anything home…but there was this pile of flooring remnants. Three-foot-long pieces of a very unimpressive looking wood, sort of muddy...
  6. Hyperbola Whirlygig

    credit to David Winigrad for the concept (see his link above for example sound and motion) The beads fall on one side and ascend on the other (each bead making a noise against the plates) ran across this on you tube and had to make one. The sound and motion from it are cool. The bead noise...

    made of ash, plywood depth of 300 mm, was made in the image of the thorn groove - long sit was prapatan pattern, and small details made the thorn on the stationary milling… painting Marelli CAEP lacquer
  8. Home Brew Mash Paddle

    I am getting ready to make the move from brewing beer with malt extracts to brewing with all grain. The key step in the process is mashing, which is where you steep the malted barley in hot water to convert starches to fermentable sugars. Traditionally, a wood paddle is used when the malt and...
  9. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    So now I get yet another solicitation - this time, not through my website, but Etsy.com. I have a previous post on the first scam. The email: "Dear Seller, I am interested in the immediate purchase of your item and will be make payment via cashier check/money order, my private shipping...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    Can I mix Japan dryer with mineral spirits and put it on a topcoat of minwax stain/varnish and make it dry. For some reason this topcoat will not dry. All suggestions helpful. Thanks, mike
  11. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I am finishing my new (800 sq ft!!) woodworking shop. While I've got the ceiling joists still open I thought I might install one or two exhaust fans to help get rid of dust and odors. I know I need something stronger than a regular bathroom type fan. What size exhaust fan do I need? Has...
  12. Focus on the Workspace
    I have an older 16×24 detached garage for a shop. For now we still park a car in it year round and we live in Iowa so our summers are very humid. The high humidity is an issue for my tools and general working comfort. The garage is open span so their is no attic. There is no insulation in...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Well, I am finally getting around to this, after replacing/upgrading one of our two AC Heat Pump/Heater/Furnace units. Been long enough that I don't remember if it was 2yr, 4yr, or longer ago. All I know is that it has been way too long! You'd a thought I was "Procrast-A-Didgitator of the...

    the router My cousin (first, once removed if you're keeping score) has a knack for finding deals -closeouts, and so on. He recently found himself at Sears looking at some routers on clearance - all former displays, out of the box, never used, selling for $31 a piece. Too good a deal to pass...

    It came to pass... The end of this past year saw the essential death of what was to have been a tiny shop/shed workshop. I went over ten months without completing or even beginning a single woodworking project and at the beginning of the year I was convinced it would be a VERY long time before...

    Air Filter One of the downsides to a small attic shop is the crazy amount of dust in the air. I have some windows I can open while it is nice out, but even that only has a limited effect. After browsing the internet I decided it was time to make an air cleaner. I did not want to make a major...

    Mahogany Shop Dust Extractor / Air Filter View on YouTube As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as...

    How to make Orbital Sander with fan ????? How to make Orbital Sander with fan Not sure if this is worth the trouble, but I found it to be at least a very interesting build and alternative sander !!!
  19. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I was thinking . . . how would a bathroom fan work to remove sawdust in the shop? I know that when vented to the outside it will suck the warm heated air out as well . . . but would it work at removing dust? similar to this one -...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Getting ready to purchase either a CT26 or CT36 for my small shop. Presently using a Ridgid vac and Dust Deputy but am tired of the noise and like the Festool feature of dialing the suction up or down as needed for the specific tool. I would like to continue using the DD in order to reduce bag...
