Rich,

I am in the process of finishing up my drum sander. I used MDF for my drum and that seems to be a good solution.

Using PVC was brought up in a previous thread. A couple issues I see with that are that there is limited gluing surface unless you fill it somehow, and also that there is very little mass. I wonder if the PVC could be filled with something that hardens (concrete? fiberglass?). This would help secure it in place, but would also provide additional mass that will provide inertia for the spinning drum.
