To seal off doorways for a remodel, I like to use 6 mil plastic and the @zipwall_llc heavy duty doorway. This offers the durability to last the entirety of the job and gives us and the homeowners privacy. Do all of you use zipwall brand or something else?
Comment if you've ever turned a piece of wood like this. @andyfortunewoodturner turned this spalted beech 14 inch platter. If you look at his account, he only turns beautiful wood! . . . Follow @woodworker_daily_fan for more

The wedges get a cove cut on the back corner which I put on with a straight chisel followed by a carving gouge.
Almost done organizing the inside of my #ambulance. Most of my tools have found a home. Just need to get some labels cooking so they all find their way back home after use. Still lots of room available for materials (and more #ridgidpowertools
Decals have been completely removed but she needs a good wash before I show her off completely. Video tour will come after that. Just need spring to come and frost to go and deck season will be underway. Booking estimates now and already have some projects locked in for the year.
to what was probably my favorite project to date! I made a clock with @totalboat epoxy and used mini clocks for the hour marks. Then inlayed it into a cool piece of walnut. I think I need to make another one again! pictures of the finished clock near the end of the video 🕰 • Use the link and code in my bio to get 20 percent off your entire order of TotalBoat! • Follow @woodworker_power for more
Follow @woodworker_upload_world Shop-Built Sanding Filter By Dan Standley — We do a lot of sanding in our prefinishing shop, and the fine dust often clogged the filter on the shop vacuum. Cleaning the vacuum filter was messy and time-consuming, so I looked for an alternative. After considering expensive commercial filters, I decided to build my own out of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and a 1-in.-thick fiberglass furnace filter.
Whatever size filter you choose (some are rectangular, some square) build the box around it for a tight fit. Holes in the top of the box receive the hoses from the sander and the vacuum, one on each side of the filter. The filter slides in from the front between wooden cleats. The door, attached with hinges, locks with screen-door hooks and eyes. I caulked all joints in the carcase and put a rubber gasket around the door to make it airtight.
I was surprised how well this simple and cheap device actually works. The vacuum filter still clogs, but now I clean it weekly instead of daily. A light tap on the furnace filter every few days helps keep it clear.
We brought home a piece of art from a trip that we that we thought would look best in a dark or black frame with a bit of texture to it but didn’t feel like spending hundreds of $$ to have the frame shop do it. So I thought I’d use an ancient Japanese technique called Yakisugi or Shou Sugi Ban. It’s a form of waterproofing wood for exterior use as well as protection from insects, but I wanted it for the color and texture. I used some quarter sawn white oak and brushed off some of the charred wood with a brass brush (which you wouldn’t do for exterior use) to get a little extra texture. Then two coats of oil and then make the cuts and assemble. Let me know what you think! . #yakisugi#shousugiban#frame#whiteoak#pictureframe#art#woodworking#fire#burned
We are getting close to releasing the plans for our 2 player pinball machine. - We are just making sure the AutoCAD files are perfect and then we will wrote up basic assembly directions and then we will release them on our @jeffmacksupply online store! - The final design allows for a fast paced game that is a fun challenge. - Tag a friend in the comments who’s going to need a set of these plans!! -
Four months! Four months and this is what I get back. My Fein Multitool started acting up and then started smoking. So I brought it to a fairly local place that sells a lot of tools and also offers service. I have bought things from them in the past and most of their sales people are friendly and helpful. They have a nice selection of tools and equipment. The kind of place where you can go and just browse for an hour or two. In an area of New Jersey that doesn't have a lot of tool supply stores, especially for woodworkers, it was becoming my go-to place even though it is somewhat out of the way for me. The prices aren't horrible. You can definitely get things cheaper online but I like to try and support local. And like I said, most of the people that I have dealt with were great. They do a lot of service for bigger companies I'm sure. And I know that I am just a very small fish. But.... Yesterday was the third time that I went in to check on the repair. Yesterday was the third time that I was told "the parts are in. I'll have him do it right away." Yesterday was the last time I think I'll be going there. Being patient and giving people the benefit of the doubt is not working for me anymore. Sorry @montaguetoolsupplyco. I loved your store. But your service department stinks.
