Showcase cover image for Sanding

Project Information

Someone asked for some interior shots of my shop. I'll start out with my latest shop project, which is a sanding cabinet.

The first picture shows the cabinet with the door open to show the dedicated shop vac for the oscillating sander. The two machines are plugged into a device that starts and stops the vac automatically.

Next to the cabinet is my woodburing heater. I use it very seldomly and haven't since building this cabinet. I don't think heat will be a problem due to proximity, but, hey, that's why the sanding cabinet is on casters.

The next picture shows one of the drawers open. All of the belts, discs and sleeves, sand paper and other sanding tools fit in the cabinet.

The third picture shows the downdraft sanding table that I built from Rockler plans and hardware kit. Works very well.

Nice job.

You don't plan on running out of belts anytime soon, do you? :)

The nice thing is that the 4X24 belts fit both the oscillating belt sander and my luggable Porter Cable belt sander.

I was getting so tired of all the belts, etc. being out on top of a table getting all dusty.

This is a great sanding station and will make a wonderful addition to your shop. I also like your cart with the drawers. Nice work!
