  1. Beware the dreaded .... ChupaCaja

    The Latin American Suck Box. ===================== Allegedly, it's taken the lives of dozens of innocents. In this case it's being accused of things that are FAR less loathsome and macabre. It's a roll-about air cleaner. Okay, so …. CraigsList had an ad for a explosion-proof fan [see SPECS...
  2. Bath Basket

    My Bathroom sink area was getting over run with my wife's hair equipment. I went in to the shop and built a quick basket. I routed rabbits on the ends of all my boards. Glued up and oiled with wipe on poly. I used hardwood I bought at a Home depot.
  3. Asian Inspired Box

    Hello fellow LJ's, Here is a rather quick project I decided to do after finding out that a former boss was leaving for our company. I was under the gun to finish this by Thursday of last week, but there really just wasn't enough time in the day during the week to get it done, so I spent...
  4. Shop Air Filtration

    I made this air filter yesterday afternoon. Was getting tired of breathing all that sawdust. The blower is from the downdraft of a kitchen range that we replaced a few years ago. Just couldn't throw it away. It's 1/8 hp, so it's at about the point of a commercial filtration system in the...
  5. 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.
  6. Bicycle-Mounted Pie Box

    This is a 13" X 13" box made of white oak with teak lid lift, feet and miter splines, made for a friend with a small pie delivery business. The friend in question has a lot of personal style and does not own a car, only bikes. This is a simple looking box, but I designed it entirely for its...

    well this an other view of the vase
  8. Ventilation Fan Box/Planer stand/now heater

    Well after a long time of thumbing through the thousands of great projects and looking at several posts of ventilation fans, I decided to share my twist on the project. I originally built this box for a belt drive fan which didn't last long. I replaced it with a direct drive smaller fan taken...
  9. Table Scraps

    I've been meaning to post these for awhile. My butcher block tables are made out of oak, walnut, maple, and cherry scraps. I built two end tables and a coffee table. The legs are two 8/4 glued back to back, stained walnut (minwax). I used a conversion varnish finish. Great table for having kids...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories

  11. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    So although this is my first post here, I've been directed to these forums many times over the years when looking for information on various woodworking ideas. Now that I'm getting more serious about woodworking, I figured it was time to join ;-). My current project is dust collection. I've...
  12. 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...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have been looking at several blogs and projects of other jocks and have decided I'm overdue to throw together a shop built air cleaner. I have seen that most folks use a blower from a furnace and I have a call in to a local guy who will get back to me on Monday. However, I did see one jock...

  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all, so I want to install an air filtration system for my 2 car garage that I use for a workshop on the weekends. I ordered 2 of the powertec AF4000 400cfm max air filtration systems for $130 each. but now im wondering if i should just go with 1 unit like the Jet 1000 or the larger powertec...

    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...

    Ep. 87 - Dust in Time http://blip.tv/play/Af70aAA The most common topic request for Safety Week was dust and respirators. So here's a quick review of the dust and fumes that can make our lives miserable in the shop, and why we need respirators for pro-active protection. And below you will...

    An air cleaner that you won't walk into... Well, it all started out with a trip to buy an air cleaner off of craig's list some time ago. I saw a used Jet AFS-1000B for sale for about $150. After checking out the spec's, I thought, gee, this would work great, 30×24x12, that's not too big, I can...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have 8' ceilings in my garage and the thought of losing some overhead space to one of these gargantuan air filtration units is a bit much :-) Has anyone ever thought or actually put one of their's up in the attic? I ask because I have fairly good access and would be able to get up to it to...
  20. Focus on the Workspace
    I am not quite satisfied with my HF 2 HP dust collector, and will be going with something better for dust collection. That's leaves the HF unit to be used for other things… like a DIY air cleaner. I work in a 22×22 garage, and I was thinking of mounting the blower unit on the ceiling, with the...
