Ryobi Drum Sander - paper ripping - 6 replies

I got a Ryobi 16-32 drum sander for $200 off CL. It seems to be in great shape, looks almost brand new. Does anyone have this sander who can give me advice on how to properly wrap the paper? The right (motor-side) clip seems to let the paper slip out and after a few passes it rips off, ruining the sandpaper. Any thoughts?

Where to get handles for cutting boards? - 5 replies

Not really a “woodworking” questions I guess, but I am trying to find some type of rust-resistant handles in stainless steel to add to the sides of some cutting boards.

Decorating a toybox - 4 replies

I plan to start work soon on a toybox for my friends’ son. I want to decorate it with “boy” things like a football. I am trying to figure out a way to make a simple football out of wood that I can glue to the side of the box. I thought it would be cool if I made the ball out of walnut and the “laces” or “st...

Painting letters on a toybox - 9 replies

I am planning to build a toybox for my friends’ son. I want to put his name across the front, but since he has a long name, it is kind of pricey to buy the wood letters, and I’m not sure if I posses the skills to cut them out myself. The box will be made out of plywood. The box will be blue, the letters white. So my plan would ...

Cross-grain joints in cutting boards - 3 replies

I have made a few end-grain cutting boards. I decided to make a few long-grain boards just using stripes. I would like to frame the whole thing in, to give a nice border around the whole board. The two ends would have the grain going in the opposite direction (the “breadboard” ends). I am concerned about seasonal expansion/contrac...

How to install countersunk screws w/ plugs - 10 replies

I am working on the “i can do it” step stool – it’s all done aside from finishing and plugging thee screw holes. It’s my first time trying to countersink screws.

Finishing a child's stepstool - 3 replies

Where to install outlets? - 24 replies

I am in the proces of wiring my 1-car garage for a shop. I installed a 60A subpanel last week, now I need to decide on where I want the outlets. My original plan was to install two 2A circuits (or a multi-wire circuit to save $) and install 2 outlets every 6 feet along the walls. Each outlet in the pair would be on its own 20A circuit. I w...

How to finish the edge of plywood - 37 replies

I am planning to make a varation of CDavy’s plywood toybox. I don’t think he’s active on the site, so I thought I’d ask here. How do I go about finishing the exposed plywood edges. I’d just glue a strip of wood to the edge, but the curve would make it difficult. Do I just get a thin strip of wood and glue it? Or ...

Delta 18" drum sander - used - any good? - 6 replies

Someone local to me is selling a Delta 18” drum sander, model number 31-255X. I am hoping to get it for under $200, but not sure on that yet. He says it is in “very good” condition. All call to delta told me that (based on its serial number) it was manufactured in 2005, so well beyond the 5-year warranty. I’d use it...

Gluing endgrain <--> endgrain - 24 replies

I have made a few end-grain cutting boards. I’d like to try a more simple method of making an edge-grain board, since it will be a light-duty board for infrequent use (bread serving only). I’d like it to be a checkerboard pattern. My question – a checkerboard edge-grain board will lead to lots of end grain butt joints…...
