  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Shop Vac Dust Cyclone

    I know it's been done to death but thought I'd post my version of the cyclone here too just in case it helps someone else. I used pics, plans and comments from a combination of jcoulam, SimonSKL, Billp & CyBorge (thanks guys!) because I came across my own challenges with finding materials...
  4. 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...
  5. *updated* Harbor Freight, Wynn filter, Super Dust Deputy dust collector

    You've seen one, you've seen em all… Big thanks to member Nick for the idea. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/363857 His build for the HF dust collection was exactly what i was looking for, compact and mobile. The few things i did different was use a 20 gal can, omitted the factory baffle...
  6. HFDC Barrel Top - 2 Stage Thien Cyclone

    Just thought I would share my version of the HFDC Thien Baffle transformation. I didn't want to have my motor permanently mounted to a wall above the barrel, so I decided to attach it right to the metal lid of the barrel, which worked great. I plan on venting it outside since there is very...
  7. Super Dust Deputy and HF Dust Collector Upgrade

    So there have been quite a few dust collector projects posted on here, but wanted to do a quick share of mine since I was so pleased with how it turned out. I started with the traditional dust collector from Harbor Freight that I got a little over a year ago. I was tired of still having the dust...
  8. Portable Bandsaw Stand

    Picked up and have been using a Harbor Freight Portable Bandsaw. Great piece of equipment. Decided that for some tasks moving the work piece is easier than horsing around the saw. Made a small fixture from scrap in about 20 minutes. I'm really happy with how it turned out and how effective it...
  9. 2HP Dust Collector Modification

    Like many others on Lumber Jocks, I also own a powerful HFT 2hp #97869 dust collector. Unfortunately, two of the collector support tubes on my system broke the other day so I took this as an opportunity to fix everything I didn't like about this dust collector. Here are the items requiring...
  10. New and Improved!

    I got an older thickness planer from a guy on Craigslist for a really good price. It didnt come with any kind of dust collection as it is and older Harbor Freight model. Before you say anything about Harbor Freight, i didnt know it was HF until i was on my way to get it. He had it listed as a...
  11. Bench

    This is a bench that I built as an anniversary present for my wife. She mentioned that she would like to have a place to store the kids toys on the screened porch. So I surprised her by building this while she was away with her family. It is made up of 3/4" sandply, beadboard, and pine...
  12. Miter Saw Station

    Here's my new miter saw station my brother and I put together this weekend. To make room we tore down some cabinets that were in the garage when I moved in. It's nothing special, I used some baby blue Formica covered plywood I got free a while back. I built the base out of some 2×4's and...
  13. Loft bed

    I made this for my nephew about 5 years ago. It was my first piece of furniture and used my first mortise and tenon joints in it. The mortise's are all cut by hand as I didnt have a mortiser yet. Thankfully the pictures and stain hide most of my sins the joints are far from perfect. It is...
  14. 2 Stage HF Dust Collector

    I had been planning on putting in a dust collection unit for the last several years and slowly planning it. I bought the Harbor Freight 2 HP dust collector a few months back and tried out the motor to make sure it worked then put it back in the box while I planned the rest of the system. I...
  15. Bandsägenbox

    Zum Geburtstag für meine Frau schnell angefertigt. :-)
  16. Harbor Freight Dust Collector Upgrade

    After months of researching, I finally decided to build my own dust collection system. This system is entirely bagless, and has been extremely efficient so far. I needed a system that had little footprint and high dust collection capacity. The motor is a Harbor Freight motor that I purchased...
  17. First attempt at hollowing a burl

    Hollowed this Red Gum burl with an Arbotech Mini Grinder. Has to sharpen the blade continuously. Picture 3 is flattening the bottom.
  18. Sam Maloof Inspired Rocking Chair Kansas Black Walnut Sculpted Rocker Custom Sized Hand Shaped

    This project posting is of a Maloof-Inspired rocking chair that I shipped recently to the Washington DC area. If you would like to commission a custom built Rocker specifically sized to fit you, you can start the process by checking the base pricing by clicking here to go to my Etsy Store...
  19. Book Urns

    I made these book urns for friends who had given me the Birdseye maple that I used for the insert detail. This Birdseye maple was 60 years old in 1954 - that makes it 126 years old! It came from the farm in the eastern townships of Quebec where my friend was born. The boards are definitely...
  20. Making a $50 or less Band Saw Fence

    I don't know about you but having a fence on my band saw is one of those must have accessories. I recently got a Porter Cable 14 inch band saw and to be honest I love the saw but was very frustrated that it did not come with a fence from the factory. Yes there are options like the Kreg fence...
