Folding Sandpaper

10-28-2017 05:32 AM by Rich | 6 comments »

I know this seems like a trivial thing, but after folding sandpaper this way for decades, I was surprised to find only one youtube video that discussed it, and even it failed to mention the folding order needed to easily use all four surfaces of the folded sheet. When sanding, while getting into tight places, and following contours requires a single thickness of paper, hand-sanding flat surfaces without a block is difficult with one layer. For one, there is nothing to stiffen the paper, a...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #3: Cleaning up main panel and distractions

10-22-2017 01:35 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Pulled the panel out of clamps yesterday after spending most of the day running around. Part of that time was spent picking up with stock which will become the legs. I had found a very rough piece of walnut, which I had a friend offer to clean up for me. When I stopped by to pick it up, he hadn’t gotten to it yet but was willing to take care of it then. So we blanked the pieces to ~20” and started jointing 2 sides perpendicular so we could square it up on the planer. Think a jointer migh...

Magnetic Fitting System for Dust Collection

10-11-2017 10:06 PM by davemoorefurniture | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks, I’m not here to sell you anything. However I do want you to check out this product I’ve developed called Magport. I’ve been a woodworker for many years and I began developing this magnetic fitting system several years ago in an attempt to make connecting and disconnecting flexible dust collection hose fast enough to keep up with my workflow. Often I rearrange machinery to accommodate super long boards which requires flexibility in the dust collection. ...

Plantation Shutters #12: I just wasted all this wood because of a simple moronic mistake

06-13-2017 03:23 AM by Holbs | 10 comments »

As stated earlier in my blog entry, I am a newb in the realm of sanding & finishing, coming from the world of plywood and construction lumber for all of my projects. I am learning as I go happily but mistakes will come about. I guess I’m lucky that I messed up this wood for this project now, instead of more costly and quantity of lumber later. I can not use the pieces I dimensioned for this project because I got carried away ROS’ing faces & edges which rounded over below...
