Dust Collection for the Miter Station

Dust Collection for the Miter StationA few months back, I built a simple modular 2×4 miter saw station. I finally got around to adding much needed dust collection.First, I made a dust hood with sliding adjustable doors which makes it easy to open up for mitered cuts, and second, I added a dust cyclone to my shop vac on an automated switch.I tested the air quality every step of the way to see how effective each of the components was, and what an improvement! Can't believe I waited this long to make this upgrade.You can watch the build video HERE.

Another Firewood Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Another Firewood BoxAt least it's made from firewood. Good ol' Texas old growth mesquite. Approx. 18” x 12” x 10” with a lift out tray.Custom order from a couple I met at a recent craft fair. The only ones who have ever made good on their “I'll get back with you.” promise.Just a simple sewing box for their soon-to-be daughter-in-law who recently got her Masters in Mechanical Engineering (hence the cog wheels).May end up with more orders if they like this one enough.Comments and critiques welcomed as always. Thanx for looking.
