Dave's Wide Drum Sander Build. #9: I slowed myself down, the hard way...

02-22-2012 04:46 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So I spent some quality time yesterday in the shop, turning the end caps. Specifically turning the first one to final size and then cutting the shoulder into it for a nice, snug fit on the Schedule 40, and then starting to rough in the second one… I may have to redo the first as I did something stupid. I removed it from the chuck before the drill chuck came in, so I haven’t center bored it yet… I will make certain it’s good and round before I start punching that cen...

Sierra Nets Prepares for the Fly Fishing Show, Pleasanton - Part 3

02-21-2012 10:29 AM by Greg | 3 comments »

This is the final blog about my preparations for exhibiting Sierra Nets at my first show-The Fly Fishing Show in Pleasanton, Ca. on Feb. 24-26, 2012. I will be leaving this Thursday morning and driving up to the Bay Area with my best friend, and Sierra Net owner, who will be manning the booth with me Friday-Sunday. It’s about a 7 hour drive from the Disneyland area. The building of the display has been quite rewarding. I love the process of figuring things out almost as much as ...

Blacker House Chair #2: More progress on the Blacker house chair

02-21-2012 01:11 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

He now has the legs and the upper and lower stretchers done with the exception of shaping the top of the back legs. That can’t be done until we fit the crest rail. We worked on it for 12 hrs on Saturday and he cut the indent in the feet and shaped the tappers. To cut the tappers we had to make three different jigs and six different setups for all the different shapes. I had see in a book how to shape the tappers with a stationary sander but that was with square legs and on...

Dave's Wide Drum Sander Build. #8: Progress on the drum.

02-21-2012 12:08 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Not pretty yet, and this certainly shows my extreme lack of turning skills. I have the larger of the two outer plugs round, and have it with the groove for the pulley cut in… The pulley end large side is 5.25” dia, the inside diameter is 4.75”. I am not sure I left enough thickness on the side to prevent a blowout, but I guess we will see… The first pic is the blanks glued up and the corners clipped off to keep from beating too much with the rougher… ...

"Through Lay" #6: Final entry of "My Epoxy Experiment"

02-20-2012 02:33 AM by SisQMark | 4 comments »

First let me apologize for not posting yesterday. I had a few thing come up & couldn’t get around to posting. Anyway here is the final post of this series before I post It as a completed project. I finished putting on the last coat of side two, with some added decorative glitter. It turned out pretty good. The last coat of epoxy on side two. I sanded side one again to remove some of the epoxy that seams to always run underneath after you pour. I used 400 grit to smooth all...

Dave's Wide Drum Sander Build. #7: Excuse to order a new tool...

02-20-2012 02:10 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Since I am turning the caps for the new drum, I will need 5/8” holes centered in these caps so that the drum runs true. While it’s possible to to center bore these on the drill press, I figure it would be a whole lot easier with a Jacobs type chuck. Only one little problem… I don’t own one, yet… I’ve been eyeballing the simple “1/2 MT2 Mini-Lathe Drill Chuck from Harbor Freight Tools, item #42340. Now mind you, I paid more than if I would hav...

Pennsylvania Spice Box for Mom #2: Dovetails - Purists please look away

02-20-2012 01:59 AM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Last session, I managed to rough cut, mill and prep most of the project parts. This session, I finished gluing up the dividers and cutting the carcase joinery. The divider portion of the project isn’t going to upset anyone so I will walk thru that first. My intention is to create curly maple interior rather than the veneered approach used in the FWW article. In addition, I am going to use plywood in the interior except for curly maple fronts. First step is take some of the 1/4&...
