  1. Table Saw Dust Collector

    As I've posted before, I tend to take equipment, and materials work the best they can for my needs. I have gone to a whole new level now with permanent, "fixed"(I hope), dust collection. I have a "screamer" table saw that I built a massive rolling workbench for, with miter slots, and storage. I...
  2. circle jig for my Makita

    I fashioned Thien separator.But I had to make the holes for 110 mm diameter. So I was forced to make preparation for cutting small diameter circles.It works perfectly, just goes to cut the diameter from 80mm because also undertake the router base.
  3. Celtic Art in an Italian Bar

    My local pub the Pora Ca' had a pillar in the centre of the bar with an empty space, which I offered to fill. I had been experimenting with router inlaying so I had a couple of pieces lying around which I put a bit of framing around and gave them to my friends the owners. The wood is Walnut. I...
  4. Spray Can Holder for Garage

    Not really much of a 'woodworking project' but still extremely useful! 5 inch pieces of 3 inch PVC with a 30 degree angle cut on back/bottom. Glued to 5/8 inch plywood with Silicon Seal Caulking! Talk about using up bits and pieces! Added some 1.5 inch and smaller pieces up top for tools and...
  5. Garage Doors

    Here's a few pics of a project I finished up last summer. A set of Solid 12/4 Western Red Cedar Garage doors. These were crated for a client who wanted something to make the front of his lodge stand out. Finish was rubbed on with a Walnut Danish Oil and several top coats of Man O' War Spar in...
  6. DIY Barber Pole

    Made from PVC and paint, we needed a barber pole for our display at craft shows and art shows. The base and trim are made from scrap wood that I had in the shop. I even found a use in this for some left over cabinet trim that had been sitting around for years. The top is a standard light globe...
  7. Make your own PVC dust collector FITTINGS

    Make your own PVC dust collector FITTINGS I was in need of quite a few PVC pipe fittings for my dust collection ducting and some time ago I found this guy making his own (link below) and decided to make my own system too and save my self lots of Euros. Hope this idea will be helpful to some of...
  8. Locking Cipher Box

    I've stated it here before…I love Christmas. I do my best every year to make a production out of giving gifts. Perhaps its to prolong the enjoyment of the moment, perhaps I like to build the suspense and excitement of opening them..who knows. This year I wanted to make a special box/container...
  9. Imperial Star Destroyer Display Shelf

    I built this for my Cousin to store his Star Wars collectibles on. Its made from MDF, some PVC pipe and a lot of paint. After glueing on the details, I did a white glue wash over the entire project to seal it, then primed and painted. I used my airbrush to paint the window. The...
  10. kitchen island

    my kitchen island… built it out of aspen .
  11. 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...
  12. Simple glue stand

    This is a simple fix to one of my hardest task in the workshop GLUE-UP and clamping. How did I not know about this simple solution earlier! :D Two 1-1/4 PVC plumbing tubes bolted to two hefty block raised 3" above the table. The 3" provides ample clearance for clamps and squares.
  13. Pipe cutting jig

    A quick jig for cutting PVC pipe along the long axis, using a jig saw. Designed it with removable inserts so that different diameters of pipe could be cut. Works great!
  14. Horse Shoe Door Knocker

    This is my first try at one of these. I was give a bucket of horse shoes a few years ago and welded some together for coat hooks but this one said it wanted to be a door knocker…. so it is.. I just welded a rod across the opening for the pivot and added some brass knocking pieces and a cherry...

    Padauk wood pen Created by Steve Birdman Weber Made on January 5th, 2009 first attempt, would love to do more.
  16. Makeshift spray booths

    When the temperature outside is below 50F or wind is blowing, it is impossible to do any spraying outdoor. I made these two makeshift spray booths so I can do my spraying inside my garage. They are made of 3/4" PVC pipes and not glued together so I can take them down and store away easily. The...
  17. Rasket

    This is a very odd project - my daughter raises "tame domesticated rats" - anyway, the critters are not so bad…now onto the project. One of her rats passed away so I quickly (10 minutes!) built a small sealed "Rasket" (Rat Casket) so she could bury it. This is the result. Made from a leftover...
  18. Candy Cane Christmas Light Jig

    I made this jig to cut identical slots in 1/2" PVC. It's made from a piece of scrap 2×4 and a 3/4 dowel. There is a 3/4 hole drilled down to 1/4 of going through the 2×4. A 1 1/4 kerf is cut through the center of the base which also passes through the center of the 3/4 hole. A dowel was added...
  19. Marshmallow Gun Jig

    This jig was made to make cutting PVC pipe faster. When making marshmallow guns I have to cut three different sizes 6", 3" and 2". I base my cuts around the factory markings because I want as little of the markings to show as I can. The jig allows me to set the fence once then butt the pipe...
  20. Exterior Railing

    Second floor Railing, out of PVC 2×2s with Stainless rods within, and Tigerwood. Near shore so nautical arts and crafts design worked. PVC works great near the salt air but best of all, it does not have to be painted.
