Where're my wood workers?

I took a deep dive down a rabbit hole with my most recent purchase but it was neat and I have a few personal projects that want to do, so here we are. I have made a few simple plaques for friends, just to play and practice, I will post those later Hope to sell some stuff to pay for this thing but if not oh well

I do forsee that a lot of friends and family are going to some stuff ,who better to practice on than the ones that love you...

That’s nice Shawn. I recently upgraded my shop with a Rikon bandsaw. Works great for ripping down old Timbers.

Not bad at cutting foam mattress down to fit old non-standard bed!

I've got a woodshop in the basement, contractor tablesaw, 14" jet bandsaw with riser, drill press, sliding compound miter saw and two wood lathes. Two years ago I build a LowRider 2 MPCNC that's fun to play with, though I haven't done a ton with it.

I seem to use the lathes mostly these days becuase the projects are quick. I like to turn bowls for gifts and some sea urchin Christmas ornaments. We had a shop in my town that sold things from local crafty people and I had some shelf space. So for a while, I was a professional woodturner . I'm sorry that they didn't survive the pandemic though, so no more sales.

Yes, PVC works well and is inexpensive. I have a 20yr+ Grizzly collector with after market fine mesh bags. I this same DC used in my last shop with PV pickup lines and a ground wire tied throughout to minimize static build up. Turned out it was kind of a non-issue due to the very short duty cycles so in this shop I didn’t bother.

Dust collector was in a separate room in my old shop. Sitting right on the main floor in this one; the noise takes a bit to get used to.

And yes, the memory foam was a big upgrade over the 60 year old mattress it replaced!

With the new shop I finally had room to add a surface planer and the bandsaw.

The pride of my shop a is a 1995 era jet cabinet saw with large outfeed tables and Freud shaper built into the side table. Recently used the Shaper to mill up casings to match the original house door and window trim you can see in the previous post.

Years ago I built a drop counter area for my miter saw between two sets of cabinets. I used a 12 inch pool drain underneath the saw to capture the dust along with a hose hooked to the pick up on the saw. I had a 10 inch sliding Makita for years but now I’m using a Dewalt 12 inch miter.

Finally getting the chance to use all these tools now that my kids are grown up.

I use lathes a lot in high school woodshop but really nothing since then. Very nice tools but never made the list for my shop.

I built a shop here before I began building the house. Table saw, compound miter saw, drill press and lathe. I also make a shaper out of a half-inch router. Works well. I've done a lot of woodworking. Started in Junior High.

I burned this with the laser on a metal business card to see how far I could stretch it out before the image started to get distorted.

John: did you live in your shop during the construction of your house? I have a couple of friends that did it that way, which gave me the idea of just building the shop and forgo the house your modern-day barndominium long before they were cool. I still haven't made it there yet but that is my life goal to build a 50x100 with 1200 sqft of living space.

I am working with all job site style tools ridged planer DeWalt 10" table saw and 12" sliding double compound miter saw, BOSCH 14 Gallon Dust Extractor with Auto Filter Clean and HEPA Filter with a dust deputy. My "workshop" is the front room of the apartment on the property that I am working lol

I did butcher block countertops in my last flip house, this is a piece of the cut offs. I am still figuring out speed and power rates for the laser and really just playing with my new toy.

I am doing butcher block for the island in the current flip house and was juggling with the idea of engraving something on them but I really lack creativity. Was thinking something neat but generic enough to not put people off.

I suspect like many here, I've had several "careers". Cabinet maker, mechanic, salesguy, remodeler.

When I looked down the road to "retirement", I became fascinated with all things CNC, so I got a little router. And then another.

Audio nerd since a teenager and sort of YouTube curious, here's the result:

And the latest where I stuck a camera in the dust shoe of my router. Odd videos currently my thing, I guess.

When you make any speaker Peter do you have some sort of information beforehand on dimensions that contribute to performance or is it a make it, and kinda test the attributes of the box after the fact?
