Harbor Freight 4" x 36" Belt / 6" Disk Sander 97181 - Woodscrub's Mods


Straight out of the box. The sander came with the sanding belt pre-installed
and tracking correctly!

This is my second one of these sanders. I had one around 10 years ago, and over time had modified it to work better. Then I sold it to move back to California from Colorado. So it was time for a new one, and I can modify it all at once!

Ambrosia Maple Side Table

Perfect for that morning coffee.

This table uses an oval shaped top, mitered box, and tapered legs. All made from a single board of ambrosia maple. It also has inlay of padauk and walnut in the top, and is finished with Formby's Tung Oil Finish.

Stanley No 70 Box Scraper late 1800's

Stanley Rule & Level Co.
I picked this up a few years ago and played with it some without doing much to sharpen it. This weekend, I decided to sharpen and hone the blade and see what I could do with it.

Small Mallet - Sycamore and Black & White Ebony

A small mallet for the shop.
After moving, I couldn't find any of my mallets. I needed to tap something into place, and using a steel hammer didn't appeal to me. So I dug up some scraps...

Craftsman Table Saw from the 80's


So I've officially stopped working on the Harbor Freight saw. I picked up this mid-80's Craftsman contractor's saw for $65.
