Hi folks. After some design changes and fine-tuning the drum sander is finally completed. Here’s a point by point description covering some of the steps I feel important to take on this project. Pictures should help where I’m not so clear. I will post the surface sanding option, some dimensions, and final comments in Part 3. Here it goes….. hope you like it.

Jigs and techniques #3: Bandsaw resaw fence

03-12-2011 05:16 AM by GregD | 6 comments »

As I was getting to the stage in my door project that required a lot of resawing, I started looking for information on how to do that. On the web and also in the classroom of my local Woodcraft store I saw tall shop-made fences used for resawing. So I decided to build one. I selected 3/4” melamine for the fence. The melamine faces provide a relatively hard, slick surface for the fence face, and the particle board substrate does not have a propensity to warp. Unfortuantely, the st...

Kreg Precision Fence on Rikon 14" Deluxe Bandsaw

03-11-2011 05:00 AM by GregD | 5 comments »

Building My Work Shop #18: At Last a Woodworking Shop to be Proud Of! (Long Version)

03-08-2011 10:18 AM by Crushgroovin | 10 comments »

It has taken me about 8 months but I finally have my Workshop setup with all the large machines I need, or wanted! The best part is I was able to pull it off while putting some extra cash in my pocket. You see this past November I thought I had everything necessary for the projects I wanted to do. It was pretty simple I wanted to make some small projects like cutting baords and some bigger projects like a Sofa Table or Greene & Greene Blanket Chest. What I quickly found out was my Shop...

I was reading my RSS feeds the other day and came across this article in Woodworking magazine. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to make one for myself! I have a Bessey vise that I got for a few dollars at the Columbus Flea market here in NJ. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for? Well I did! Needless to say it still served some kind of purpose for me, I tuned it up and made the best of it.When I looked at the article in WW online zne I started to get excited and w...
