My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #3: More of My "Not just any box"

01-12-2008 10:36 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 18 comments »

Well I got a little more accomplished. I did a little design change today, I removed what I called the chin at the bottom side of the heart. I held a piece of stiff sand paper, & drew a cutting line, then proceeded cut off the chins.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Note; the cut off line. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A big improvement with no chins. I call this “Wooden surgery.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

2X4 Winter Contest #1: The beginning

01-07-2008 04:16 AM by Jamie | 4 comments »

Well, I started working on my 2×4 project today. Last weekend I picked up a bunch of 2×4’s at Lowes to construct a new lumber rack, with 1 to spare for the contest. I was a little afraid that one 2×4 wouldn’t be enough to complete the project, but it looks like I will have a few scraps left. I cut some of the pieces today, 4 – 18” long pieces have been jointed and edge-glued together to form one plank (needed it to be a little longer than what is r...

I've Been Busy...

12-30-2007 06:31 AM by Keni | 5 comments »

I just wanted to check in to let anyone who cares know that I am still around and working hard! I recently purchased a used 26” Woodmaster drum sander and love it! I have also been busy working on my shop layout and dust collection system. I have been keeping up with my daily business and of course working on my house (for Mama!) and the addition. Christmas was great. I got a GPS for my truck to help me find my appointments easier! I will post some new pictures of my drum sander and rec...

Homemade "Tools"

12-13-2007 10:07 PM by itsme_timd | 6 comments »

Thought I’d share a couple pics of some of my, umm… ‘creations’. I’m sure everyone has fabricated a makeshift tool before, and shopmade jigs are commonplace. Here are a couple ‘tools’ that I put together because I didn’t have the actual tool. Both of them worked great for their intended purpose. My Table Sander I simply took a full sheet of sandpaper, folded the end over the edge of my work surface and clamped it down then stuck a pie...

Maple Picture Frame

12-08-2007 06:45 AM by itsme_timd | 3 comments »

Just completed my Maple picture frame (posted in projects) and I sure learned a lot from it! The finishing really gave me a hard time, I think it turned out fairly well but would have liked it a little smoother. On to my next project – a Mission style couch table.

Hi All, I posted some details and pics of my workshop today as well as some projects. I completed my first project recently – a headbaord for our guest bedroom. I’ve made some picture frames and working on a more ‘deluxe’ picture frame now. I’m going to need to jump in and look for some answers soon, the questions are starting to pile up!.

Seeking Advice on Thickness Sanders

11-06-2007 01:07 AM by Blake | 19 comments »

I have been saving my pennies for a thickness sander. I really need one for surfacing small stock for boxes. There seems to be only two (and a half) models in my price range: Grizzly G0459 12” and the Performax 628900 Mini 10-Inch (which as far as I can tell is identical to the Jet 10-20 Plus?) Grizzly G0459 12”: $495.00 on Amazon plus shipping, only one review (5 star). Performax 628900 Mini 10-Inch: $499.99 on Amazon with free shipping, reviews state tracking problems. ...

Dustless Sanding (really!): Rigging up your own vacuum system with the Porter Cable Model 333

06-01-2007 03:35 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 7 comments »

The hardest dust for me to breathe is the fine stuff that comes out of the orbital sander. I have used the Porter Cable Model 333 for about 10 years now, and have done a lot of sanding with it. I am sure there are better, more expensive sanders, but I like it, at least so far. Here is a photo showing my collection. The one I bought two years ago (gray one with yellow tinted lacquer overspray on it) is now dead, but I keep ...

Sand Flee and other drum sander kits

04-27-2007 04:48 AM by JonH | 5 comments »

Has anyone seen the sand flee? Its kind of a neat drum sander. They have a video on their website. http://www.rjrstudios.com/ I have also seen a very similar kit for sale that allows you to build your own drum sander that is identical to the sand flee. It is here. http://www.stockroomsupply.com/ Both sites have nice video, and they both seem to operate the same way with hook and loop paper. They work by using the paper rising up off the drum through centrifugal force. I like this ide...
