Interesting video, enjoyed it, but have one question: wouldn’t it be easier to first draw knife the seat thinner, then sand what remains? Just curious. Thanks.

Do you mean skipping the use of a file? The post that we mortised into the seat requires a bit of hand filing. Otherwise I do just like you said.

Hi Pete,
I was referring to the start of this video, where you used your small disk sander around the outside perimeter only to begin cutting it away. You mention in the video that your disk sander is a bit too small for the job, I thought it might work better with a thinner edge.
Thanks

Oh, I see. Well the platform of the sander is so small that I couldn’t hold the seat square against the disk after I rounded the edge. That sander is what I consider a temproary measure. I plan to make a big 3/4 horse one with a 12+ inch disk once I locate a motor.

Have your say...
