My CamVac dust collector is a noisy sucker, but I am extremely happy with it. And one of its features is very useful for noise reduction. Let’s make a couple of hush-up’ers! In addition, let’s look at my dust collection system.

The boolean wall shelf
Yet another wall shelf project. This time it is for my oldest sister, Unni. I got a text message with an image and “show this to your wife, she’ll love it!”. Subtle… But hey, it’s woodworking! And I do have some oak at the ready.
Getting out of a rut
Different situations can lead one into a bit of a rut sometimes. Motivation to start a project, continue work on one – in short, getting the elbow dislodged from ones behind – seems utterly illusive. Thankfully, there’s help to be found among kindled spirits!
Idle hands – not so much, really

Rosemine’s wall shelf
A torii inspired garden bench
Knock it down a notch!
When I made my work bench, I did not know which height would be best. So I made it tall. Very tall. I put “lowering the bench height” on my to-do -list. Do you have one of those never ending stories? Na-na-naa-na-na-na… Anyway, let’s get crackin’!
This ol’ hamma’
Rings like silver! Whacking, wellying, tapping, bashing, smashing, persuading, nudging – there’s a lot of tasks in a shop that need a good… problem solver. Let’s review one option; the Thorex 712R
