  1. Bookcase for Baby Girls Room

    Hey guys. Its been a busy time for me with a growing 10 month little girl in the house. I don't know how some of you have the time to complete such awesome projects with kids. Still working on managing my time to get out in the shop. We moved last August and we did not own any bookcases...
  2. Working with the Lathe

    This is my first ever lathe. I bought 12 Shop Smith lathe knives at an auction a few weeks ago for $5 and am having the time learning how to make stuff. Like an artist I just start and when I'm done, I see what's left. Here are some pieces I made from a Cherry tree my neighbor cut a few weeks...
  3. RAS Dust Collection

    I use my RAS… a lot. For the longest time I've had a wheelbarrow behind it where most of the sawdust lands and it is a lot of sawdust. Almost as much as my table saw. I've seen several LJ'ers and Youtubers with various RAS dust collection methods and decided that I like the fence port style...
  4. Dumpster Stand

    Like some guys make tree stands for deer hunting, this is a dumpster stand for ( safely) dumpster diving. It was made out of necessity to be able to retrieve some very good stock of maple plywood that is discarded by a local company. I made it out of some of the stock from that dumpster plus...
  5. Small Table

    A small table I built for some friends who are adopting a couple kids. They will sell it in a silent auction to raise money for the legal fees. I'm sure I broke some rules as far as what can be posted on here being that it's made of mostly all metal. I even cheated on the table top and made it...
  6. Steel String

    I decided to try my hand at an acoustic. It turned out pretty well. California Laural, Alaskan Yellow Cedar top, mahogany bolt on neck, cocobolo fretboard, ebony bridge and headstock overlay, bone saddle and nut. Sounds good but volume could be better.
  7. Miniature Cupboard

    My mother-in-law's nest door neighbors have a grandson who loves The Indian In The Cupboard so for Christmas they wanted to get him a little cupboard. They didn't want it exactly like it but rather something similar that would be his own. It is a simple little cabinet but he really loves it.
  8. Basic Drill Press Table

    I needed a drill press table for the castle bookcase I'm building (you can see that project on my blog if you want, but I'll post it here when I'm done). I saw the idea somewhere on LJ….I think….so whoever the original creator is, thanks! If I knew who you were (sorry!) I'd totally give credit...
  9. Outrigger sailing canoe

    Here is a summer project from two years ago that I never posted. It is a skin on frame outrigger sailing canoe. The frame of the canoe is made with white oak ribs and larch for the gunwales, keelson, and chines. The seating platform and outriggers are douglas fir. The skin is nylon with varnish...
  10. Two Perfume Atomizers

    First time turning these sprayers….very easy and simple. I was just looking for some upcoming Christmas gifts for family and friends. They are both curly maple…and one was dyed red then blue, while the other was dyed black then red. The blue/red was finished with wax and not buffed, and the...
  11. 4-Piece Cubbie Book Case

    My wife runs a furniture refinishing business out of her home. She basically finds older dressers cheap and repaints them to resell. She had a client that was looking for a cubbie bookcase system that she had seen in a Pottery Barn magazine. I offered to make a version of it. The "fun" part...
  12. HVLP Spray Cart

    I made this cart for my HVLP sprayer so I could get it out of the storage bins. Top drawer holds the spray gun and all accessories Middle drawer holds the filters and bigger things (even a one gallon can of finish) Bottom drawer holds the hose Two features that I think are handy. 1) The...
  13. Bow Table

    Made During my second semester at red rocks
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm looking for a decent consumer grade HVLP sprayer for around $150. I'm painting my kitchen cabinets (previously unpainted). I realize that I'm not going to get a fantastic unit for that price, but I can't justify spending $300 - $1000 on a sprayer. I'm just looking for something that will...
  15. Finishing
    Rockler is offering the HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer for about $70. Home Depot and Amazon have it for about the same price. It's an HVLP sprayer that seems to have it's own little compressor with it. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with it. The reviews aren't that...
  16. Finishing
    I'd like to get an hvlp spray gun soon. I've used a friend's set of cambel and hausfelds that had a small and medium gun and thought it worked well. I think it was probably just some Chinese set though. I'm looking to spend less than 150 ideally and would like to get a sprayer that uses...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just saw this in a trade magazine. On the Sherwin Williams site it says it was released February 2010. Have you seen this or had any experience with it? I notice that lacquer is not listed in the products it will shoot. Here's a picture.
  18. Finishing
    Been using this sprayer a long time with no issues but all of the sudden it won't atomize a laquer I've used a few times before. I've cleaned every nook and craney, the needle and spray tip seem to be fine. What am I missing, I've played with the air settings and tried all I can think of to...
  19. Marketplace Classifieds
    I'm selling my HVLP Spray System by Rockler since it's only collecting dust. I only used it a few times and still in the original box. I don't spray a lot coz I like wipe on poly. $50. This is on sale now at Rockler for $89.99. I live in Norwalk, CA. so if you can pick it up you'll save...
  20. Finishing
    I just found one of these in my shop… got it from a friend… never paid much attention to it til now. Preval looks like a COOL system... How many use it (have used it)? Do you like it? What do you spray with it? Have any problems thinning, etc.? Some of the parts can be purchased at...
