Any tool that can help take the drudgery out of sanding is a welcome addition to most shops. A large edge sander is a perfect example. But many of us don’t have the funds for an expensive, dedicated stationary tool like this. So when our design team proposed this shop-made version, I knew we’d hit the jackpot for both practicality and affordability. You can build this sander from common materials like 3/4" plywood and then just add a motor, switch, some hardware, and a sanding belt and you are ready to get to work.
