This was a project that I posted on youtube a while back which I had a lot of fun doing do I decided to share on LJ. Enjoy, Let me know if you have any questions.
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. Main Body: Made with ¾” maple veneer plywood and solid maple for the pillow block base. Assembled first with pocket screws to check t...
Buildup of a small display cabinet I’m working on that will hold Riker boxes, holding that hold coins/buttons/medals. Really good weekend project and a good beginner project to. Made from quartersawn white oak since it gives a good rustic feel. I’m still getting used to filming and one thing I notice is I need a lot more light.
THE FENCE IS HERE! NOTE: Please read parts 1 and 2 to know how I got where I’m at today. Thandks for looking, any comments or suggestions are welcome, Hersh Now the fun begins. I unpacked eveything and counted all the nut and bolts, etc. Then read the instructions and reviewed some of LJ’s blogs and started in. The first thing I had to determine was how the holes on the saw line up with the holes on the fence. I soon realized that none of the holes were going to wor...
I’ve been wanting to do some improvments to my tablesaw and I finally got the first one done. My tablesaw is a Boice Crane and has been around for while. I know only the old timers have heard of a Boice Crane, thought y’all might like a trip down memory lane. It’s a second hand tablsaw but it does what a tablesaw is suppose to do, and that’s all that matters. I’ve been wanting to box in the bottom and hook up the vacum to it. I made some before and after pictures...
Building shelves for the Grandkids out of MDF, complete with hangers for their baseball bats.
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...
Last week went the Woodworkers show and had a blast with my wife. we turned pens, bought all sorts of things including a new fence for my table saw. Went to the different seminars on saturday and sunday and met a lot of nice people. My wife is now turned onto wood working and turning. So last thursday i went and picked up my new fence. Saturday we installed the new fence and added a new style power switch to the table saw. After doing this we decided to build a new work bench. So off to Ho...
I thought I would post a quick update. 1. I now have a Delta 36-T30 30” T2 Fence System on the way. I shopped online for the best price for this Fence System. The best deal I could find was from Tools Plus (http://www.tools-plus.com/) for $147.97 and only $6.50 for shipping 55.0 Lbs. Not bad at all. 2. I Also have a Vibration Free Link Belt on the way. I think with these upgrades I should have a saw that will be accurate and maintainable for a long time to come. When the ...
