Sander made from plans by Stumpy Nubs .com. Exception is that I made a slot in top plate to enable sanding one edge or side of board.

Looks like there is a bit of time invested in this, does it work well?
Very good looking.

I have the same question as the others, how does it work? How bout the cost and where to get the materials? And, how does it work? I like the looks of it very much and would like to make one myself.

Looks like it is built like a tank! The top sander is a nice dual-purpose addition. I don’t really understand these, is the out feed portion of the top raised slightly higher (like the out feed table on a jointer)?

Do you have a system for dust collection?

That’s looking very good Bob.
I’ve had my eye on those plans for several weeks, so I too wonder how well it’s working, and what the final cost was.
And how well does the feed belt track?
