I am just starting to put together a wood shop. I have built many houses, but mainly have limited my woodworking abilities to trim work and framing. I am wanting to get into finish carpentry and build more furniture quality things. I was a fire fighter for 30 years and now retired and have a fair amount of time to devote to this in the winter months. In the summer I am in the garden, cruising the river we live on or golfing.

When sanding a cabinet door with a drum sander, doesn’t that mess up the top and bottom rails that have the grain running in opposite directions as the rails? The reason I am asking this is because I am in the process of deciding which sander to purchase. I like the jet oscillating drum sander that I can see would be good for opposite grain directions in a panel door, but it cost nearly 2000 as opposed to a Grizzly 24” drum sander for 1400.
I have worked with wood my whole life framing houses and building log houses, but in retirement, am now starting to get into finish carpentry…so I am going to have a lot of questions!
This is a great site, thanks all for all your blogs thus far.

Bill

Bill: I find that I need to do a ROS sander after doing straight line sandinf. The scratch pattern is usually noticeable with the straight sanders.
