Bloodwood - 8 replies

Have a question about sanding Bloodwood. I use it for accents and corner splines in some of my boxes. After cutting it in 1/16”+ and 1/8”+ I run it through my drum sander to get the desired thickness. I am having a problem with the wood gumming up the belts and then burning the wood. Any thoughts or ideas will be appreciated.
