Shaping & Smoothing Station
This shop-built power tool is an all-in-one solution for sanding, shaping, and smoothing tasks. Best of all, construction is fast and easy.
The combination sanding machine you see here unites the function of several tools into a compact benchtop unit. The key to its versatility is its simple design. A motor in the back drives a double-ended shaft up front. The shaft accepts a wide range of attachments. One unique feature is that the motor and shaft assembly can slide forward on the base. This creates more free space around the front end for sanding large and complex-shaped parts. The machine is mostly constructed from laminated plywood assemblies that are durable and quick to make. The result is a low-cost, versatile tool.

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.
