Tomorrow, at 9;30 AM, my new ‘old’ Hans stroke sander is to arrive. This one has a 120” X 48” table and an 8” belt. The tables adjusts in/out/up/down. I have been lusting for this tool for some thirty years, after having used one briefly in the late ‘70’s. It is just the size to work upon that ‘promised’ dining room table for Son and his wife.
I harvested a number of Claro Walnut trees and root-balls a year ago. The 4/4 material is ready to use. It has some fantanstic grain and figurings. My D-I-L fell in love with the boards a few months ago. Of course, Dad [aka. Granddad] is a push over.
Well, I am as a kid on Christmas eve. I can’t wait for tomorrow to arrive.
