A few weeks ago my mom wanted some wooden beads to put in a vase. So with a little help from lumberjocks, I was ably to make a wood tumbler from my 5” disc sander. I made it so it can be taken off in a matter of seconds to use the sander. It turned out quite well I thought. And my mom was very pleased with them. The beads are made from scraps of zebrawood, wenge, purple heart, paduak, cherry, maple, and walnut. A great use of scraps. To polish them I took a worn out piece of hook & loop sand paper which was very smooth, then glued a piece of paper on to it, then attached it to the sander and gave them a final tumble. It gives them a great shine. Finished with wipe-on poly.
