Double Drum Sander

05-19-2017 04:25 AM by BigD184321 | 6 comments »

Looking to purchase a double drum sander, or perhaps a single drum. Educate me with pro’s and con’s. Open or closed, I need to learn. I lean towards open for greater capacity. Thanks for the input.

Table Saw Station #3: Trim, Vise, Dust Manifold

05-19-2017 01:24 AM by Brazz04 | 2 comments »

I got some more shop time today and installed the trim to help protect the melamine edges. I also completed the dust manifold to quickly change to different parts of the table saw station. I used rare earth magnets epoxied into the wood to hold the manifold firmly in place.

Shop Chips #1: Advice on Vises! (For beginners)

05-18-2017 05:46 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube so this’ll kind of be my “vlog within a blog” sort of thing. For this week I wanted to talk about something that the internet seems to complicate for alot of people and that’s vises. I cover it in the video but suffice to say that the best vise that you can possibly get is the one that has all the parts, the jaws move smoothly and freely, isn’t missing any parts, and most importantly fits in the space that you have alloted for work. In ...

cornhole boards #4: Painting/staining

05-17-2017 05:24 PM by Tony19 | 1 comment »

This week, I started working on the design of the boards. I used golden oak stain for the middle and blue for the sides. I plan to put a brown or gold stripe down it as well, I haven’t ran into any troubles painting or staining. But I did realize I want to cover up some markings on the sides of my boards so I plan to use black paint on the sides after I’m done with the face. Other than that, I’ll finish painting, then throw on some poly on the stain on my mid...

Morris Chair #5: Back Cushion Upholstery and Finish

05-17-2017 05:04 PM by PPK | 3 comments »

I’m in the home stretch now. I don’t have pictures of this, but I cut out 2 pieces of leather for the cushion, in the exact same way as the seat cushion. Squares cut out of the corners. I then sewed up the corners with a blind stitch. The front and back are still separate. Then I prepared to sew the zipper on. I sewed the front and back sides together with my usual 1/2” seam allowance, blind stitch. Then I flattened the seam as much as possible and placed the zippe...

I decided I needed a CNC Machine. I liked the comments on the Piranha Fx so I bought one. I heard it’s not a bad machine especially for a novice. Does anyone have any suggestions or does anyone have one and can give me some hints.
