Jig, Vaccum Hose Bracket

The drum sander on my drill press works great for sanding curves but it produces lots of dust. So to collect the dust, I slip the hose from my shop vacuum into a bracket attached to the column of the drill press, as shown in the photo. Besides keeping the hose steady during use, the bracket is easy to adjust. This way, you can put the end of the hose right where you need it.

Clamp, Small Parts

Occasionally, I will need to sand a small wooden part on a drum or disk sander. But holding onto small parts can be a challenge. A pair of pliers could do the job, but I wanted something with a softer grip. So I came up with the small parts clamp shown in the photo.

Drum Sander Vacuum Table

Mounting a drum sander on a drill press is a great way to sand the edge of a curved workpiece. But it produces very fine sawdust that is unhealthy to breathe -- and a nuisance. So to cut down on the sawdust, I built an auxiliary drum sander table that works with my shop vacuum.

Water Garden Under Glass Downloadable Woodworking Plan PDF

Make this simple, yet elegant base in an evening, and then add an inexpensive globe, a little water and vinegar, and your favorite blossom to create a stunning accent piece. Though the rings of this eye-catching base look like they are turned, surprisingly you make them using a bandsaw, scrollsaw, and drum sander. Included in the plan is a source for the globe and stopper. The base measures 7-3/4 inches in diameter.

A sanding drum makes quick work of smoothing an edge profile rough-cut with a jig saw. You might think you need a drill press or spindle sander to keep the sanded edges square to the surface, but a corded electric drill, shop scraps, a few dollars worth of hardware, and a set of inexpensive sanding drums will do the trick too.
