« Part 1: Take off Part 2 of Buick sedan 1932 series Part 3: The bottom, chapter 1 from the plan »

During making the Buick Sedan I have made a lot of pictures and they will be used for this blog about the build process. This blog is mostly made in subdivisions according to the chapters of the building plan, but be aware that this is not the same as the chronological build. When questions are there feel free to ask. If I don’t know the answer there are a lot more LJ members which can and will help you.

There are many ways to build a wooden model and mine isn’t the best. Sometimes I have to redo it more often than I like. It also happens that after something is done I realize that there was a better way. And therefor feel free to comment when you think It can be done different or better.

I don’t have the motorized sander but this tip will work great with a belt sander as well.
I had been wanting to try some thin trim but had always stayed away from it because of not coming up with a good way to get the quality needed.
So now I have no excuse for shabby trim. LOL
So love the great tip Dutchy and looking forward to the next!!!

Come to think of it a jig is working it’s way up in the back of my mind for a small vise to hold them for sanding. HMMMMM!!!
Love these kind a posts as it gives me something to ponder.

In the past you have made a sanding drum on your drill press. And I’m sure that will do it for such small strips. And I have seen here on LJ a drumsander on a Shop Smith made by Shipwright.

Now your talking!!!
A 3/4 plywood base, some double sided tape.
Stick the strips to the tape on the base like you did and push it through the Shop Smith sanding drum, Nice!!!
Love it when a plan comes together. LOL

I do like Shipwright’s idea but would be changing out the Shop Smith way to much for this fellow to use. The small drum sander will get er done for the few parts I need it for.

That is up to you, no problem and it was more the idea and bring it to your attention. You know Bruce that there are a lot of ways to do something.

Dutchy the more ideas that we get exposed to the better, then we have to narrow it all down to what tools we have that can get the job done, and how safe it is to do.
It’s funny but after all this talking I still like the idea about using the belt sander with a guide, Fast and easy for the few inches I well need.

Dutchy,

The same process works great in my planer too. Just take small passes and your golden.

Getting it done is more important than what tool is used. Your solutions always work well Jan.
