  1. Harbor Freight Dust Collector Mod

    After buying the Harbor Freight 2hp dust collector right after Christmas, I knew I was going to be making some changes to it. First, I dumped the upper bag and added a Wynn 35a filter. Second, I really wanted to put a pre-separator on the unit to keep from having to change the lower bags as...
  2. iPhone 5S Dock

    To make this a short story, I was originally cutting a branch into thin slices for some coasters: simple. But when I stopped and looked at what I had left, this piece with one little stub attached, I thought this is the perfect piece for a cord to go through! I have seen a few iPhone docks...
  3. Protecting your fanhood & Tabletops

    Just a quick little project from that same branch I made the iPhone dock out of. I'm really liking the easiness of the photo transfer through laserjet printer and lacquer thinner. For those who have done this method, what seems to work best for you?! Sometimes I get a flawless transfer the...
  4. 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...
  5. 5-Board Benches

    My new neighbors are waiting for their furniture to arrive from Texas, and they said it might not be here for several months. They asked me to make a couple of five board benches for their dinning room table. They wanted simple. The benches are made from 1X pine, and are about as simple as...
  6. Photo Display Blocks with Instructional Video

    I wanted a creative way to display a bunch of pictures that didn't require plugging in a memory card or battery powered digital frame, and I remembered the clear plastic photo cubes my grandmother had when I was a kid. This woodworkers take on that theme involves gluing pictures to a block of...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Today I was finishing up the carcase of a base cabinet of a two piece china hutch. I decided to add a subtle detail, a lambs tongue, to the outside corners of the face frame. I grabbed the Dewalt 621 plunge router and chucked up a 45 degree chamfer bit, set the depth just right and began...

    One year on LJ, what a difference a year makes With my one year anniversary on Lumberjocks coming up in a few days, I thought I'd start my first ever blog. I can't even believe it's only been a year. When I joined a year ago I had quite a bit of experience with carpentry work and home...

    Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector I made this before I started creating videos for YouTube. This is my interpretation of the Thein Baffle reconfiguration of a Harbor Freight dust collector. I did this for a couple of reasons: First, my shop is...

    Design and Adapting the Air Filter Since we're replacing our well pump this week, I won't be buying that spiffy new dust collector this fall that I've been eyeballing. Instead, I opted to modify my current DC, a very humble, very 1-horsepower-ish Shop Fox W1727. The plan is to replace the...
