Safety should be everyone's priority when woodworking.  To keep my fingers safe when cutting small pieces on the table saw and miter saw I made this nifty hold down stick.  It's sturdy, comfortable and works quite well.  The cool feature is the feet - made from tire va...

I've been using my table saw a lot since I built it (see build here).  With dust collection a top priority in my apartment workshop, I needed to improve the table top dust collection.  I've seen dust collectors similar to this design on google and in woodworking magazi...

In my last project I built a cyclone dust separator from an old shop vac.  If you haven't see that check it out here.

I wanted to take it one step further (because why not) and automate it.  Watch the video below to see how I hooked up my newly built dust collector to m...

Dust collection is very important in my apartment workshop.  Just down the hall is the bedroom & bathroom so nu dust can escape this room!  For this build I was inspired by many other dust collector videos on Youtube.  This is not my original design but it is unique to...
