Multi-Purpose Disk Sander
The large sanding disk and extended arbor makes any sanding or smoothing task a breeze.
Getting smooth, even curves can be tough to do by hand or with portable sanders. But after building this disk sander, those hassles are a thing of the past. The top feature of the sander is the big, 12" disk, of course. But that’s only the beginning. The drive shaft extends out the back to allow you to attach a buffing wheel, or flap sander. And for easy access, the head of the sander is designed to pivot. You’ll find building the sander is pretty straightforward, too. It’s made from inexpensive MDF using basic rabbet and dado joinery. An added benefit, MDF adds mass and reduces vibration.

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.
