Great DIY Edge Sander

This looks like a great, fun project that will fill a need for my shop. It looks challenging for a newbie but I was thinking I will eventually need an edge sander so I thought someone else might also be interested in this build. Here is the link

I gave him a thumbs up/like on You Tube

I liked his style of presentation 100% compared to other You Tubers who want to tell their life's story or speak in a radical British accent .... (undecipherable) or are so soft spoken they need 3 mics, or are just "lame" and boring. This has excellent graphics, is very well done and the design and workmanship is first rate!

The end result is for 3 sheets of 3/4" plywood and a day's work you can make a nice edge sander that would cost about $700.00 retail. So what it's made of plywood, it won't rot away in your shop or rust if you live in Florida. Woodgears should be this good!

I have the plans for this sander but don't know if I'll ever build it, my shop is crowded as it is.

Speaking only for myself, I enjoy Woodsmith magazine. This sander was featured in one of the recent issues. I get a lot of great ideas from the magazine, and also dream about building some of the larger projects, like their rotating router table, their CNC machine, etc.

I also enjoy their television shows on PBS.

As a business, Woodsmith is like one big self-pollinating organism. The stuff they feature in the magazine may be shown on TV or vice versa. Magazine articles are collected to become books or plans for sale, etc. The TV show drives buyers to the website, etc.

I watched that video a few days ago - probably one of the best I've ever seen as far as production value. That guy did an excellent job between the CAD screens, video presentation, and narration. Very surprised that he doesn't have a lot more videos out there.

Agree with @Tool Agnostic - I really like Woodsmith. I'm actually building a table saw cart based on plans downloaded from their site. Didn't know they have a tv show as well, I'll have to be on the lookout for that.

I'll never build it but, it's hands down the best instructional video I've ever watched. This guy is so multi-talented and covers all the bases in a very logical and precise manner. All YouTubers should see this. Thank you wjfeeney.

It is a very good video, I just wonder how all wood tools stand up in unheated shops, that is a lot of work only to find the wood has swollen and the adjustments are ceased up. There is a reason tools are manufactured mostly from metal.

Reasons machines are made of metal ......

It's about production quantities. Stampings and casting are far easier to mass produce than wood pieces with possible exceptions to something CNC made. Welding can be automated as can surface grinding and boring. Mass is a big consideration for reducing vibration and stability.
Not to say that wood can't be made massive and substantial, but metal is better for larger quantities. Wear is another factor, like table surfaces. In the video shown above he laminates HPl for the table surfaces subject to wear, a good choice.

For a home shop on a budget, that DIY wood edge sander would be perfect. The same concepts could also be used in a platen or panel sander. I though using the router to round the drum was very creative. Then shimming each side to partially taper it was also slick.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
