I'm glad I'm not the only person who uses my table saw as a work bench.

Nice woodgraining, Harry! I'd like to more about your dust collector system.

The shop is in quite a disarray at this time , I had a cabinet shop in this building from 1994 until approx 2007. I started selling off some of the bigger specialized tools this past fall and had to use the saw top and ext table to set these after they were sprayed.
The dust collector is all made from PVC 4" S&D pipe and grounded with 14 ga copper , It's a 3hp system that i built, that feeds 3 55 gal barrels with bags on top of ea. It works a lot like the separator at the scrap yard does the fine light dust is the first barrel and the heavy particles are the last. We took about 700 feet of redwood and fir car siding off the lumber rack Saturday and there was dust everywhere.

Does the boom swing? The reason I ask is that I'm moving my woodworking equipment out of the house workshop and over to the shop/garage. I have a dual bag dust collector & chip separator, but don't want to do all the duct work. A swing boom just might solve my problem.

Mike JW, I'm working on another post to my Truckstell Thread.

Hey, cbmkr56, were you concerned at all about fine dust messing up the drying paint? And what kind of paint did you use?

There was no dust in the air when they were sprayed. I brought them over and sat them on the saw on paper. I use Minwax Poly on everything now.
I used to have a 12x40 booth with filter bank doors, that is a storage area now.

That's all real wood , American walnut cut about 35 years ago.

The front door pcs and dash were totally made by hand no pattern to go buy. The rest of the parts were broken into 2-3 pcs the rear window trim being almost completely gone.

WOW!! I'm embarrassed to think it was just "woodgrained".

It's stacked or finger jointed, The problem comes when you start machining those thin parts sometimes things just blowup or split.

WOW!!

You're a master wood worker, and sad to say, a dying breed. I see that you are 62 years old. Do you have a son, or grandson that is coming to your shop to learn?

My son does Mesquite furniture. He is so much better at it than I could ever be, and his sons have no interest. So sad.

Very Nice work i am glad too see someone in the younger generation using there hands to create something, Our son lives in Berlin Germany and is currently in The Berlin University of Arts and following in my footsteps. Our oldest Daughter also followed and does a lot of craft and artwork in her business Green Bee Kc , She makes Handmade Tea Towels and sells them all over the US.

I am getting ready to start on a Bedroom set that i cut walnut for in 1986, The timbers i am using were from a barn built in the 1860's southwest of Kansas City.
