    Add veneer to just one side?

    Veneer is supposed to be added to the ‘back’ side of a veneered project to keep it stable.

    My project is a built-in, using pre-finished 3/4” birch cabinet sides. The un-finished backs of the...
  2. If you rest the filter on the floor with a vacuum...

    If you rest the filter on the floor with a vacuum hose suspended just above the floor, the dust will fall, enter the vacuum, and not spread across your shop.
    Why not out-doors? Too cold in...

    About the Oneida and cleaning the filter...

    I added a pressure sensor after the second time I failed to notice the full waste drum. Each time, the filter quickly got stuff the cyclone couldn't. ...

    I was planning to use the 5 cfm pump.

    Looking back at his site, Joewoodworker says he's stocking pumps from a different source, lately. The 5cfm pump now on the site draws 3.7A, but 7.5A at...
  5. Relay switch on a vacuum pump (veneer press)

    Joewoodworker.com gives advice on making a vacuum system for a veneer press. Some folks have made YouTube videos on their builds (of his plans and pumps). One of these guys said the 5A pump can...

    Shellac cut

    New to shellac, I want a bit of ambering before spraying water-based polyurethane. The first effort was Gen'l Finishes oil stain, waited 7 days then brushed two coats of one-lb cut shellac, sanded...

    I finished a kitchen with Arm-R-Seal gel. Biggest reason (vs brushed poly): no drips on vertical surfaces. Cabinets still look new after 10 years.

    Drying out becomes a problem with a can opened...

    You guys were wiser than me. Because that jig was too small to rotate the roller, I stood the blank on end, and rotated it at the bandsaw (just to rough diameter). The wandering blade almost ruined...

    Well, I finished it, and (in case anyone else is interested) I have answers to my original questions.

    The plan is a good one. There were some pleasant surprises.
    - The table was square to the...

    Like everybody, my dehumidifiers have only lasted 1-2 years. You can't repair them, and (where I live) it's hard to dispose of them.

    Latest purchase was Frigidaire (from a big box store). It...

    Thanks. I ordered the springs before I started, but I sure appreciate the thought. Glad to learn that I do need washers (must be reading the plans correctly).

    "What would you use a belt sander that wide for??"

    My interest in the width (6") is to go for longer periods between belt changes. When part of the belt has been used, changing the table height...

    I've been off-line for months, missed your helpful message.

    I just finshed the rollers (did it their way), and bought the bearings from McMaster-Carr (their vendor, which happens to be 30 min from...

    Band saw blade tracking

    I put a 3/4" blade on a Laguna bandsaw (18bx), and tried to have it track with the gullets in the center of the wheel. (Some folks say that reduces drift). But I can't get the blade that far back...

    Since my spraying will be for only one project at a time, I figure the time spraying (and the time with open windows) should be short enough (20-30 minutes at a time) to just tolerate heat loss. ...

    Is the wood from a buckeye tree useful? Does it have another name? (I haven't seen it at the lumber yard)

  19. Has anyone built the Woodsmith belt sander?

    A recent issue of Woodsmith describes making a stationary belt sander (different from a previous one that they powered with a lathe).
    - Has anyone built this?
    - Does it perform well?
    - Cost...

    That helps. My old dust collector only pulled 330 cfm, and its output goes to a big flannel bag. The shop now has a 2hp Oneida cyclone, which showed me how much I don't know about volume, pressure...

    Thanks for bringing up the booth.

    I just got the Earlex 5500, and have a former laundry room next to the shop where I thought I'd make a booth with plastic walls (made from vapor barrier,...
  23. Veneer on curves perpendicular to the grain

    An OG clock has concave faces on the door rails and stiles, and (obviously) an OG shape for the face frame around the door. For both, the grain of the veneer runs perpendicular to the long dimension...
