Shop-Built Edge Sander
This shop-built edge sander makes quick work of tough sanding jobs. Plus, it can be built at a fraction of the cost of a commercial unit.
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 built from common materials and hardware, I knew we’d hit the jackpot for both practicality and affordability.

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.
