  1. 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...
  2. VISE QUICK RELEASE ( VERSION 3 )

    This is version 3 of my magnet assist vise quick release which I designed and sized the body with the same dimensions as my version 1 quick release so that I could interchange them easily . I made a video of the function and construction instead of writing a long text to explain it in words...
  3. Keepsake Box

    Keepsake Box for our flower girl at my wedding. She is graduating college now, so I feel old. Maple, Walnut and Mahogany stripe. The inside dividers are removable if needed. Bowties on the miters to strengthen the joint.

  5. Printmakers Media Console

    Check out this printmakers media console I recently built. The media center gives tons of storage with 3 large drawers with false fronts to give the appearance of 9 drawers. You can build this media center following my free and easy plans here...
  6. I finally have a vise!

    I got this vise on craigslist a couple of years ago thinking I would use it when I make a workbench. I still haven't gotten around to making a bench but finally just broke down and installed it on my outfeed table instead. It is wonderful! Never realized just how useful it would be.
  7. Homemade handle with drill chuck adapter for the carbide tools

    Sometime this year, I brought a set of 4 carbide tools, but struggling to decide what I should do with the handle. Make a regular handle for each of them or build one with the adapter that fits them all. Then, I saw a picture from a friend who uses drill chuck to hold these tools and it seems...
  8. Three drawer chest

    This chest was a project in a week long class at Marc Adams School of Woodworking. The class was long enough to get a good start on everything and have an idea of what you needed to do to complete it. One of the staff members, Zane Powell was the instructor. The architecture is web and frame...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Need to add a vise to my bench. I was shopping my local Woodcraft and checked out their vises. On the way home, I stopped by Harbor Freight (can't help it, it's around the corner from me). The 7" vise they had was remarkably similar to the ones at WC except for the price. ($30) I know the need...
  10. Hand Tools
    I've been looking for a vise and wonder if anyone has any experience with the yost vise. This vise seems very similar to the eclipse vise and the lee valley The yost vise is $80 cheaper than eclipse and $110 less than lee valley. Does the yost vise seem like a good choice and if not...

    Some Recent (and Some Not-So-Recent) Tool Acquisitions Since my last blog entry (something like 2 years ago) I've added a few new pieces of iron to the inventory. The first of which was a mid-1960s DeWalt radial arm saw. I'm still in the process of cleaning this one up and rewiring it...

    3D Printing in the Workshop While this topic doesn't strictly fit into the guidelines of timber product, it does incorporate the processing of said prerequisite, however, to err on the side of veto wizards I decided to blog instead of projecting it. We need to set the mood! Once...

    Seeking Info on homemade Bandsaw Tension Quick Release Somewhere, in some magazine (probably Shopnotes) I remember seeing a homemade version of the Carter Bandsaw Blade Tension Quick Release pictured here: Does anybody know where that article is? Can you scan and post the...

    Making an effective quick release feather board I built this feather board last friday, and took pictures along the way. It's a lever action feather board and how to build one. It works out great if you make repeatetive cuts in large quantities. This is a project you can do in about three...
  15. Hand Tools
    I got a deal on an American Scale Co. No. 203 quick-release woodworking vise (nice and big and heavy) at the flea market the other day, and I'm trying to figure out if what it's doing is a bug or a feature. One side of the screw has no threads, so when you turn counter-clockwise a turn the...

    Hi, I have three record quick release vices, and love them. One I have had for a long time and it works perfectly . My two recent additions, despite being given a loving clean, still do not re engage after using the quick release. On the original I simply turn the handle, the gearing engages...
  17. Hand Tools
    Among a few other things, I found an older quick release vise at an estate sale recently. The seller intended it to be "bundled" with a tablesaw, but I offered him $10 and, just like that, it was mine. There are no real distinguishing markings on the castings, but it doesn't appear to match...

    Here it is It's 21% off currently, but for Father's Day, it goes on sale at nearly 50% off tomorrow, down from $115 to $60. Any thoughts? Anyone used it? Is it worth it? I'm curious about the quality, and whether or not it's worth it, even at half the price. The only other vises I have are a...

    I recently restored a 10" Craftsman woodworking vise that was made for Sears by Columbian. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I am having a minor problem, however. The quick release loosens just fine, but it doesn't always switch over to tightening the way it should, so I sometimes end...
