Question by friendlyboy: Woodworkers, what was your latest creation, which tools did you use, and which power tools do you own?
Also do you have access to a woodworking shop or area, which tools do you use, how long have you been into woodworking and why do you enjoy it?

Best answer:

Answer by I am I said
A 60″ bath vanity made of rustic Appalachian cherry wood.

A bit of a challenge using this wood, as you have to select and configure the natural deformities in the wood to create a nice look.

I used a table saw, mitre saw, planer, jointer, router table, pocket hole jig, drill and driver, along with a host of hand tools.

Carpentry is my passion because I can transform a pile of rough, bark-covered lumber into a fine piece of furniture that can be handed down for generations.

I fashion my cabinetry after the Amish, who are masters at building furniture.

    Like a lot of woodoworkers, I put off buying an air filtration system longer than I should have. It’s one of those things that realy should be done BEFORE you begin to set up a shop area. Well, I finally did my research on available machines and decided to buy the Jet. I’m glad I did. It definitely does a terrific job, is relatively quiet, and it mounts easily to the ceiling. The filters are easy to change — just flip four clips and pull out the filter. The machine is also fairly lightweight, making it easier to mount. The remote control is a great feature, allowing you to turn the machine on and off from a distance, set the “speed” (hi, medium, or low), and set the timer (it has settings for 2, 4, and 6 hours). The timer is a very useful feature, since you can set the machine to run for 2 hours as you’re leaving the shop, and you don’t have to remember to come back down to turn it off as you do with other machines.

    My ultimate test was sanding a large maple table top. I’ll describe what it was like doing this before and after I got the Jet system.

    BEFORE: My shop measures 30′ long by 20′ wide. Before I had this machine (when I had no air filtration system at all) whenever I sanded a table top the shop got filled with dust really quickly. Even after I stopped sanding, the dust hung in the air for maybe half an hour. And the next day, I’d come into the shop and see a thin layer of dust settled on everything.

    AFTER: Now that I use this machine, the air never gets as dusty as it used to (even in the middle of sanding). Also, within five minutes after I’m done sanding, the air is crystal clear. By leaving the machine on after I’m all done, whatever dust remains is taken care of. The next day, coming into the shop, there is no dust on anything.

    * * * * * *

    As a final note, I give it four stars because the remote does not allow 360-degree access. But this is a relatively small matter with such a great machine.

    I have a dust collector, but there is still a lot of fine particles that get missed, especially when sanding. The AFS-1000 picks up where the dust collector leaves off.

    The low speed is very quiet, and it starts gently, which is really nice for a unit that hangs from the ceiling. You can mount it on a wall too. It comes with hardware for both types of mounting, but no chains. Not only are batteries included, Jet even includes two pieces of velcro to stick the remote somewhere!

    Having a remote makes this a piece of cake to turn on/off. The LED’s on the unit are large, so it is easy to see what settings are on (Speed: low, medium, high and Time: 2, 4, 8 hours).

    You know what they say – “Too soon old, too late smart”. I’ve been woodworking and doing carpentry work for years. Until recently I’ve been guilty of not always using the proper protective gear for the task at hand. I now have a pretty well equipped workshop and this was one of the last major items that I purchased. It should have been one of the first.

    I purchased the Jet AFS-1000 about a year ago and it has been among the best workshop investments I’ve ever made. The air in my shop has been crystal clear most of the time for the past year.

    I bought this unit after reading numerous reviews – just like you are doing now – and decided on this one because of the features it offers. Two of the best features are the remote control and the timer.

    As suggested in the instruction manual, I ceiling mounted the unit. The ceilings in my shop are 9’6″ so it would have been impractical to use a control that was mounted on the unit proper. Some units offer a switch on the power cord, but that would entail letting the cord dangle so that you could reach the in-line switch. Jet solved this dilema by equipping this unit with an infra-red remote control. Yes, just like your television, you must have line-of-sight between the remote and the control panel on the filter, but I find this not to be a problem at all. With the remote, you are able to control all functions of the filter including, on & off, the 3 speeds, and the timer.

    Speaking of the timer, most times when I am going to be producing sawdust, I just set the timer for 4 or 8 hours and forget it. When I’m finished for the day, I just walk away and let the unit continue to clean the air until it automatically shuts off. The next time I come into the shop, the air is clean and there is much less sawdust coating my machinery, etc.

    If you do much woodworking at all, you need an air filtration system. Do yourself a favor and get this one, it’s among the best available.

    Last thing i made was my bed from my own design, it has a desk built into it that comes up from the end and out with a black glass top set into the wood and a blu ray player built inside the desk, the bed stands 15 inches from the floor to make it a perfect height to get on and off, and it has no visible signs of support when you look at it as you walk in the room so it appears as if the whole thing with attached desk is defying gravity and floating in mid air, also i put 2 x 6ft ultra violet fluorescent tubes under it that i can switch on via remote control to give it that extra little touch. the blu ray player is connected to a hd projector that projects onto the wall in front of my bed and on the desc i have the controls for my 5.1 surround sound system that speakers are wall and ceiling mounted and a keyboard and mouse that Connect to my pc that’s hidden under the bed along with a massive sub woofer for the surround sound. I also had custom decor to tie everything in with the room, i made the bed start to finish in about 20 hours over the duration of 1 week with diy cheap saws and chisels it was all screwed together with a corded drill that i put a screwdriver bit in and some wood glue on all the joins to stop it from squeaking, to stop the bed from toppling over i screwed the back end to the wall and the small Support frame that’s in the middle i also screwed to the floor, its extremely stable and cost £70 for all the wood to make and £15 for screws and glue, i really enjoy woodwork especially when making things that dont even exist from my own designs but my profession is electrician. heres a link to a couple of pics … http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=254489190433&set=a.254488760433.309240.739120433&type=3&theater

    I made a pair of cedar swing seats. My garage and back yard are my “woodworking shops”.

    I used the Ryobi cordless circular saw, trimmer router, finish sander, and impact driver; B&D table saw; Hitachi miter saw; bench drill press, and Braun coffee maker.

    I love working with materials: metals, plastics, and wood. What I love about wood is its “personality”. Each species has its own look and mechanical properties. But then, so do metals and plastics. Metalworking was my first love.
