Lady In Red

Furnished content.

Lady In RedI was asked if I could make a last minute box to be given as a gift.
The catch was that I only had 24 hours to design and build it.
I like a challenge so I dropped everything and got to work.
The customer was wanting something pretty simple, and no dividers, so I scratched my head and came up with this.
I barely delivered it in time….whew!The sides are a very dark White Oak
The lid is from one piece of quilted Western Maple
The handle is Paduak
The feet are walnut with a Paduak rail, this can be seen in photo 4
The lining is Buffalo hide
Brass pins were used for hinges
Finish is semi-gloss LacquerThanks for looking!

Dewalt planer dust collection cabinet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Dewalt planer dust collection cabinetIt's not always convenient to hook a large dust collection unit to all my tools. So, I built this cabinet after looking around on the web. Two drawers with a separating baffle in between make lighter weight emptying. It will require a little more work, as the chip ejection fan on this planer is so strong that it blows the drawers open just a little, allowing some sawdust to blow out.I think I'll try cutting a 4or 5 inch hole in the front and use a filter to ease the pressure without losing the sawdust.Anyone been through this? If you have, advice is appreciated.
