  1. 24" V-Drum Sander

    I just completed my 24" V-Drum sander with the help of a 24" kit from Stockroom Supply. The kit contained the drum, pulleys, link belt, pillow blocks and mounting brackets as well as plans for the box and top. The box was easy to build and went together fast. I took a little more time on the top...
  2. V Drum Sander Trial

    I have been wanting to build a V Drum Sander and liked the idea that Shipwright had of using a Shopsmith. I built this one as really a trial at finding out how to do some of the things and the problems that I would run into with it. The drum is made of 3/4" plywood that were cut using a hole...
  3. Fences for V-Drum Sander

    A while back I posted a project on my completed V-Drum Sander. This sander has become one of the most used machines in my shop. I think I have used it on every project I have worked on since it ws built. I finally got around to building some fences that enhance the functionality and overcome a...
  4. Keepsake box

    My son is going away to school this fall and wanted me to work with him this summer on a project for his sweetheart. This is the result. He made this keepsake box just from scrap in my woodshop. We got the basic idea for the box in a "The Woodsmith Shop" episode. He used scraps of plain white...
  5. Stumpy's Tubafore Contest Entry 2x4 Box

    After starting my first 2×4 box, I realized I was making many mistakes. I started my second 2×4 box shortly after starting the first. Each box is started by riping a 2×4 into 1/4 inch strips. This is lots of fun and makes lots of sawdust. I picked out the better strips and glued them together...
  6. My version of V-drum sander

    When planning this project, the drum is of course the hardest part. I really didn't want to make a bunch of disks, glue them together and try to true it up. And the kits for the 24" drums were too much money. So, I went looking on ebay. I found this great steel roller covered in hard...
  7. Reclaimed Grey Barn Siding Sliding Door

    Here's a nice looking grey siding covered sliding barn door we did. This wood came from Iowa. This cool door covers the entry to a pantry and uses our 8″ v groove wheel hardware. I love this oversized hardware. It glides so smooth. I used the new style black phenolic door guide I recently...
  8. 18" V-Drum Sander

    I bought the 18" 'The Works' kit plus an MDF top from Stockroom Supply (http://www.stockroomsupply.com) ... so far I really happy with this little sander. I wanted it for finish sanding of doors, panels, and draw boxes, and it looks like just the ticket. I did a review on it … see...
  9. Another V-Drum Sander

    I hate my brain sometimes. A couple of months ago I started building a Lingerie Chest. I bought some cherry and planed it down. It was cheap cherry from the 'shorts' pile. It was too wide for my jointer so I had to play with jointing wide boards. It did not have the best grain. (i.e. SWMBO...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    When I built my V-Drum Sander a couple of months ago ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/29085 ), one thing that was missing was a guard covering the link belt. Though there were never any injuries, it never felt very safe … and if it doesn't feel safe, it is not. Took care of that problem this...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm considering making a V-Drum Sander and I wanted to ask people who made them and used them over the last couple of years to describe their experience with them. The main thing I would use it for is flattening end grain cutting boards, but I don't even know if this is possible on a V-Drum...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been thinking for a long time about making a V-drum sander. I've got a tiny shop, so space is a premium. I have a Delta bench grinder and rarely use it. I want to keep it for when I do actually need it, but the idea of giving it double duty really appeals to me. The motor speed at its...
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    I will soon have a need to face joint 8"-10" wide boards 3'-4' lin length. I am new to woodworking so my tools for this task are limited to a table saw and a benchtop planer. I have completed much research on planer sleds for face jointing. Everyone references the FWW sled but that looks like...
