Mobile Sanding Station
Simple construction, mobility, and industrial grade features make this sanding station a dust collection dynamo.
The clouds of dust produced by power sanders make sanding most woodworkers' least favorite task when building a project. Thankfully, this mobile sanding station makes the job a lot less messy. Designed from the top down to ensure maximum airflow, the worksurface has grates with long, wide slots — a big improvement over the pegboard tops used on many shop-built sanding tables. It also features a 4"-dia. dust port that allows you to hook up to a dust collection system. And a pair of baffles channel the sawdust directly to the dust port. All these great features make it a lot easier to collect dust so it doesn’t end up in the air (or in your lungs).

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
