  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. HF 2 Stage Dust Collector

    Had a cheap HF mini dust collector laying around and ran across a photo of a JET trash can model and it got me thinking…..why not transform this thing for the plainer and jointer. Of course I had to make a mini one to match my shopvac for sanding and the miter saw.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

  7. Dust Collection System

    I just moved to a new location and am setting up my shop in a detached garage. I converted my HF dust collector to a 2-stage unit using the Oneida Super Dust Deputy. I used 4" PVC along one wall with 5 drops and a total of 10 connections using a double wye branch. The PVC is mounted to the...
  8. Tag Arbor

    I finally have my arbor in place in my flower ring. I planted silver lace vines on each side and they are already climbing! Dick thanks for the idea and I have had alot of nice comments. Wait til the vines grow and bloom!
  9. Stepstool

    This is a step stool I made in my high school shop class, I made this in the fall semester, it is made of hickory. Just a half circle design on the legs. I just rounded of the edges. Used three biscuits for the top. I used pocket hole joints for assembly of my top, legs, and sides. I used...
  10. Claro walnut slab entry table

    About 15 years ago I bought 2 big claro walnut slabs and promised that I'd touch them only when I had gained enough experience to build a project worthy of such beautiful wood. Here's the result from the first one. The design is inspired by a table built by Mark of The Craftsman's Path...
  11. Keepsake Hidden Key Box

    This is one of my keepsake box I made over the holidays as Christmas presents. It's basically the same design as the one made by the Wood Whisperer. I was able to crank out 3 of these as I was new to cutting the dovetail slots, so that slowed me down, along with some unexpected, and severe...
  12. Repeat Customer : )

    I've really got to give thanks to my friend and customer , Brian , for all of the business he has provided me with since I gave him one of my boards as a Christmas gift too many years ago now. This board was to be a surprise gift from him to some relatives that had an old , well used and now...
  13. Wine bottle balancer

    I know the wine bottle balancer is not a big deal, but I am very green in the woodworking world and this is my first attempt. I am pretty happy about it. To top it off, my 5 year old son helped me! This is also the first of many projects that I hope to post.
  14. Hand Carved Piece of Wood

    I wouldn't necessarily call this a sign. I had this thick piece of mahogany and decided to use it to carve this for my friend's wedding present. I found that I really love carving in mahogany and look forward to building some nice furniture out of it so I can do some detail carving in it. This...
  15. Shop made tools #6: Ruler Stop

    Just a simple ruler stop. Made from beech and a modified brass nut. The magnet inside holds the ruler tight and ad some friction during precise setting. The last pic is a little tip: I added 2 magnets to my ruler. So I can pick up it very easily. Thanks for watching! Bas
  16. Farmhouse Buffet

    I think part of my wife's daily routine is online shopping, and not to actually buy anything (luckily), but to get ideas for me to build. Well she found the Whitfield Buffet table from Pottery Barn and fell in love. I knew it was going to be a bit more involved than she made it sound, but the...
  17. Play Kitchen

    This is the first project in 1.5 years since getting pregnant and having daughter. Hubby was nice enough to babysit after work and on weekends so I can crank this little play kitchen out for our nephew over the course of the last couple months! I designed the kitchen around the IKEA trivet that...
  18. For the winers!

    I have friends that almost live in a motorhome and enjoy many quiet outdoor things. They also are fond of wine. After seeing a few folding wine tables, I decided to try one. Made from just cheap pine. Actually shop scraps. Sorry not shown outside-raining! Proto-type seems serviceable. Designed...
  19. Entryway Bench

    I made this entryway bench for one of my daughters. The framing is all made from a 2 X 10 milled to size. The panels are bead board.
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all, Does anyone have any experience with the Cen-Tech Digital Angle Gauge from HF? It's about $15 cheaper than the Wixey. I have a HF locally, but not a Woodcraft or Rockler to get the Wixey so there would be shipping on top of the additional cost. Yes, I am frugle (my wife says cheap)...
