Combo Drum Sander #1: Concept and making the drum

02-20-2011 06:48 AM by tyka | 11 comments »

This is my first blog and I hope it will go over well. This sander was inspired by models on the Internet but mostly by Blake: and by Bob: I would like to thank them both for their posts. Without them this project would have been very difficult to complete. Concept: My intentions are to make a 20” +/- wide drum sander that will easily switch from thickness to surface sanding. I would like to be able to reduce stoc...

Don't believe all that you read. #1: Costly mistake via Woodsmith Mag.

02-20-2011 01:27 AM by woodklutz | 18 comments »

I foolishly believed that the plans that I was following to a T were accurate and tested prior to publication. I refer to a plan to construct a Headbord for a queen sized bed. Last months issue.I cut my expensive Cherry boards to measurement, rails and stiles I dry fitted them, no problem.Next step was the edging well that is the problem. Woodsmith shows the stiles 18” when in fact they needed to be 20”. Also they mis labeled stiles and rails (easy to reverse) but I ask, who pro...

DragonFly Harp #9: 2/12/2011 Harp and Stand Roughed Out

02-19-2011 09:54 PM by Donna Menke | 12 comments »

Seventeen days- long time between posts. I meant to make a break between the harp and stand constructions, but they kinda ran together. First, here is what happened to the harp:I used my trusty Jet 14” band saw with a nice new 3/4” Timberwolf blade to cut out the pillar, neck, and neck reinforcement using 1 7/8” thick cherry wood.This is what they looked like when all cut out. Then I needed to make holes in them for dowels to reinforce the pillar/neck joint.These are 3”...

Toddler Bed #1: Simple & Quick

02-19-2011 04:01 PM by AmandasHusband | 2 comments »

A couple weeks ago, out of the blue, I decided I was going to make a toddler bed for my soon to be 2 year old dauughter Emaline. I wanted it tbe fairly simple so she wouldn’t be 6 by the time I completed it. And I wanted it to be easy to take apart when she, and maybe the next one, grow out of it. Oh, and it had to be painted. That was my wife’s choice. She’s one of those people that wants everything painted. So poplar and pine it was. Well, it’s poplar with...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #261: More Preparation

02-19-2011 02:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday went by far too quickly. I don’t know how or why time seems to go by so fast, but it does. I see more and more grass through the banks of piled snow and you can just feel the air changing again. Winter is nearly over (now that wasn’t so bad, was it?) and we are definitely moving in the direction of Spring. Soon we will be getting to my least favorite part of the year – that muddy, dirty transition between winter snow and spring. This year though, I don’...

Shop made drum sander with a difference

02-19-2011 01:58 PM by BigTiny | 29 comments »

Like many other LJs, I’ve dreamed about having a drum sander in my shop. Also like many of us, I have the usual problems, lack of funds and lack of room. While doodling on a few ideas of how to build one that would fit my shop, I was suddenly hit with this idea… I have a lathe; why not build my sander on it? It has a good motor, the bearings are already set up for heavy side loads, and since it will fit on my lathe as an accessory it won’t take any more room. I fi...
