  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have been reading as many posts as I can to figure out a dust solution for my shop. I should say that I do not plan on buying a dust collection system, I will be using a shopvac with a dust cyclone setup. I am also considering getting a wall mount shop vac, but I digress. My question is can I...
  2. Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

    Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel...
  3. A First Time for Everything! Tablesaw Jig! turns both inside and out of wood bowl!

    I don't think I've had this much fun with a Jig in a long time.. Check out the attached video to watch this really cool little jig in action! Using the jig i am able to use my table saw to create the traditional parabolic curved shape on the outside of a wood bowl. Fun project with great results!!!
  4. Homemade systainer mounting plate for my Dust Deputy

    I went to the workshop late in the evening to do some cleaning. After running away very very late on early Christmas Day morning the mess couldn't have been worse. Digging through the first layer of tools and clutter I looked at the newly bought dust deputy and my festool shop vac. Suddenly I...
  5. Ghetto Fabolous Vacuum Cart/Dust Separator

    I've had this idea to make a dust separator for several months now, I even made the top for the bucket about 5 months ago, it's been sitting there ever since. Yesterday and today I took a little time to make it function. It's made out of all scrap osb and plywood I had lying around (as you can...
  6. Shop Vac Tip

    It's frustrating when you go to roll your shop vac around and it gets hung up on a cord. This may not qualify as a wood project but it worked so well I though I would post it here. It's not my idea, I came across it on a web page a while ago. The 2" PVC fit on my Ridgid Vac perfectly. Yours...
  7. My cyclone vac

    After looking at many post on LJ and numerous you tube videos I just had to try this. Much to my surprise it worked very well on the initial trial. Next is to put a new filter in the shop vac and to seal all the little leaks. The funnel part is app. 20" tall, 9" top and 4 1/2" at the bottom and...
  8. One point shop vac clean up.

    Boys and Girls, Sorry for discussing such a dirty little topic. While we may have a hung jury about this being a legitimate project classification, some timber was cut thereby satisfying my ego. While a centralised dusty is nothing new, I'd like to add my take and some of the gadgetry I use...
  9. Homemade Vacuum Press Table

    My friend is starting a business making Kydex gun holsters and asked if I would be willing to help him make a few jigs and tools to help him get started. The first thing I built for him is this Vacuum Press table. After doing some internet research I settled on a fairly simple design that uses...
  10. Homemade Dust Collection Ports

    When I first made some of these, I didn't realize how useful they would become. Using scrap pieces of plywood, I was able to make ports for all of my tools and didn't spend a single penny. The adapters sold at the BORG usually doesn't fit the greatest so why waste time shimming up with tape when...
  11. Cyclone Vacuum Cart

    I built this mobile cart for my shop vac and Dust Deputy cyclone. Made from 3/4" ply. Used dadoes/glue/screws for the joinery. The cyclone is mounted atop a piece of ply on a piano hinge to fold up out of the way and give access to the dust bucket. A small clasp holds it down. Just behind...
  12. Craftsman Mantel

    So, thanks to Schroeder, I'm back. It's the first major woodworking project since the accident. I can honestly say that turning the table saw back on was an exercise in willpower. Anyhoo, I think it looks pretty good. It's my own design (basically an inverted version of Schroeder's). The finish...
  13. Shop Vac Silencer Cart

    I built this cart after being constantly annoyed by how loud my shop vac was. I saw this in a video by one of the woodworking magazines. Cabinet is 3/4" mdf lined with a sound insulating panel (4×8) from Rona. It's a green wood/paper product. I cut the panel to fit all of the inside surfaces and...
  14. media center with bookshelves

    Had some extra time around the shop, so we decided to build this. Its made out of poplar and mdf and finished it with some dunn edwards paint. The top is walnut and finished with polyurethane. Not really my style of cabinet but I think someone will like it. Thanks for looking!!!
  15. Festool and Dust Deputy (Money Saver)

    Recently Oneida (Dust Deputy company) came out with a custom Dust Deputy Systainer for the Festool Vacs. Already being fed up about buying those expensive Festool bags I was pretty excited about getting one and saving money but then I saw the cost; ~230 bucks. OUCH!! Here's my version of...
  16. Shop Vac Cart

    First, I HATE emptying the Shop Vac!! Dust everywhere and knocking the filter out compounds the problem. So I built this cart so everything dumps into a 14gallon drum and no dust gets to the filter. The Drum pops out and empties easily - though still some dust it is far more manageable...
  17. Air sled for drill press

    Here are some photos showing the air sled that is now under the drill press. 1st photo is the plywood base showing holes that air will travel through to get under the sled. 2nd photo shows border and spacers of 1/4 inch peg board. 3rd photo shows the top side of the sled showing the air...
  18. Shop vac for scroll saw.

    Ok, its not pure wood project, but works so good that I just MUST show it. Like all of us, I hate dust. So insted of blowing it away, I tryed suck it, and it works very well. Now my work table is obviously cleaner (dont mind dust on scrollsaw in pictures 2 and 3 - its from previous big...
  19. Shop vacuum caddy

    I got the Dusty Deputy from Oneida a while back, and while it works great for separating dust and saving the filter, it's pretty awkward to move around the shop. It comes with wheels you can attach to the bottom of the bucket, but it was still pretty unstable. So I made a cart or caddy to keep...
  20. Weekend Pen Case

    I got the idea for this pen box from a friend. I was at his house looking at a commemorative pen he was given for retirement and was impressed with the design of the pen box. I took some pictures and spent a couple days figuring out how I could make my own. The box turned out to be fairly easy...
